Hi I am MPG187 and there is some stuff I want to share with the community.

I got an iPAQ a long time ago and liked that I could install any apps I wanted on it (Unlike the iPhone, unless you jailbreak), so I could use it for almost everything. I Then heard about phones that were like my iPAQ that could get online anywhere there is phone signal instead of just Wifi...

I then got my HTC Touch Diamond and loved it except it didn't have a Memory Card Slot, only 4 GB. It sucked that I could do all sorts of cool things but only had 4 GB to do it with. I have briefly used Android on my HTC Touch Diamond but am still used to Windows Mobile.

My Diamond Broke and I couldn't get another one from the Warranty I bought, so I am getting an HTC Magic Soon in the Mail. I was switching to Android anyways, after hearing some things about Windows Phone 7. Windows Mobile was a good product that was just underadvertised and was better than the iPhone, but now MS is taking away everything good about WM, but good thing there is Android to take it's place because you can still run cool apps in there!!!

I also own the domain http://operation420.net and have a forum there. I have posted some links already to threads I made there, I post everything there and use it to organize my life and ideas, so I often link to it when relevant (I have read the rules and see that I am allowed). I love Android and love my Forum and all forums. I am not trying to pimp out my site here, but I will be posting links if I need to in a way that enhances my posts... I am not trying to compete with this site, and if anyone here does decide to join, then they can go on both sites and we all can be friends :P

Welcome! I have a note in so the mods can guide you through what's right and not. Welcome!

They were probably removed in accordance with FORUM RULES.

Specifically
Quote:
Links on first post (or first couple if you're being slick) to your own site: If it's a competing website, not okay. If it's say.. a blog entry you're referring to, or... you're a developer and want to link to your site when you announce an app, that's alright. Bottom line - Don't come here to pimp your site – come here to be a member. Moderators will use their best discretion to determine what should be removed and what not.

Links to your own site, in general: Toss 'em in your signature, that's fine. Linking when referencing something relevant and stuff is fine too. Just be a contributing member, not a spammer.

In regards to all of this.. Moderators will handle situations at their discretion – using this thread as a starting point. If you have a problem with a member or a post here, report it. Mods will see it. If you have a problem with a moderators actions or how they handle a situation, hit up a senior mod. Still not satisfactory? Feel free to PM or email me. phases at phandroid dot com. At the bottom of the main page is a “view forum leaders” link – with buttons in there to contact him with.
That being said, welcome aboard!

I did read the rules and it says this:

Who deleted them? If I make so many posts and prove I am not a spammer, can I put them back?

I am not a spammer, I love forums that's why I decided to make my own. And I think having forums linking to each other is good because then they both get more links coming in and better search engine rankings, and it's not like a person is forced to only be a member on one forum, it's not like if members from here come to Operation420 they won't come here, they can go on both...

Your original post said "OfTheDamned" removed them. You'd have to PM the Mod and find out.

I never saw them so I couldn't tell you for sure why they were removed or what they even said.

Ya I just noticed that, I'll wait for their reply...

EDIT: Oh and ya I could be a great asset to the site, once I learn more about Android I could help members out here. I am asking lots of questions now because I can't figure things out because I don't have my phone yet. I figured out my Diamond because I had my iPAQ and already knew lots and figured the rest out myself once I got it...
