New to skoolie forum posts keep getting removed?

I have made a post about 3 times and it keeps getting removed. I have searched the rules and found nothing wrong with my posts.. so why are they getting removed, and why am I not being informed the reason so that I can stop doing what I am doing wrong. Or do I have to meet some criteria first?

hi o1marc, Yeah that is what had happened before. I saw the post after I posted it. Is it frowned upon to post a Craigslist ad and ask for opinions? I didn't see anything in the rules about it. I just want to make sure I'm going to make a solid buy.

Were you logged in when you tried to post? I assume you were if you were able to type a response at all.. People post CL links and links to other site continuously.

Post the link and reply to the General forum now.

Yeah I think it is the URL issue. I can't post the link without my post getting removed. Do I need a certain number of posts before I can post links without moderation?

You may need to exceed 5 posts. Couple more and you're there. What and where was the CL posting, I can post it for you.

You are the real MVP. Yeah I just want opinions on a bus, I am looking at buying. I know little, and I want to know more, and I think the best way to learn more is by asking people that know way more than me.

Here is the key url stuff: panamacity craigslist 1995 international bus. it has 270,000 miles (may be high?) for $2500. The description says: "The bus runs good. This bus has 3 roof mounted air conditioners that work. It also has handicap lift built in side of bus. The lift and a/c's are probably worth asking price. It has good tires, clear title, 7.3 diesel engine. Overall bus in pretty good condition."

You have no idea how many people on this forum laughed at your first comment.

Lifts are worth between free and $100. 99% of Skoolie builders will remove the AC's and go with a more convenient solution. You'll want to find out the mileage and the specific tranny it has. I don't see anything that makes the asking price out of line.

Yeah, the mileage is apparently 270,000. Which is kinda high, but could still have 100,000 miles left of life. I thought he mentioned it has been sitting for a year, not sure on that. But yeah, selling the lift for $80 would be nice. And I know most people remove the ACs. But is there any possible way to have then run independently without having the engine running. Is buying a 5HP electric motor to spin the belt all it would be, or is it more involved.

And I know, this can clearly be a blind leading the blind moment, but I'm more inclined to follow a blind person than no person, cause I'll either be in the right direction, or the wrong one.
