The thread seems to have been removed.
So now what?

We still need to get the good word around that the K7 is on a discounted pre-order price.

Moderators pls advise. (Move the thread or advise TS to post in appropriate sub forum)

i think this is simply not allowed... especially when we are dealing with a distro...

its like making a order purchase...

look at the mass order section... u wanna sell something, have to subscribe...

i wouldn't be surprise this thread will be removed.

Anyway, the Mods are doing their job nothing wrong, as to how to have this work out... let FW and MJ deal with it...

Cheers
:)

Well.. The reason why there will be threads like this is because we see some threads one moment and not the next.... :dunno:
The very least they could have done is to inform us that the threads have been removed and/or why. So that this don't happen again? :nono:

Ok ok. I figured the thread removal had something to do with its commercial aspects.

So if I'm not selling anything, and I see good Lobang, and make a post about it. Is that against the rules?

I wonder if the moderators will have an issue if MJ puts up a page describing the pre-order/prices, and we put a link to it here.
It would just be the same some posting a thread saying "Hey look! MJ's got some promotions! <link here>" :dunno:

Man, you made me laugh.

I think FW should be handling this matter now, being a moderator himself. Hopefully he'll enlighten us later.

No one wants to break any rules here, and as we're here as members of the forum; this means we agree to its rules. Hope things get sorted out.

It's against the forum rules to post pre-order info. Some other mods removed the two threads. Hope you guys understand ...

Maybe the reason thread got chopped is because all you early adopter jokers go and publicly declare your orders... just quietly send email, no need to call attention and post that you ordered lah... :bsmilie: :angel:
Just say you need Emjay's email for ahem, ... SERVICE... is that vague enough :)

Understand.
Just would have preferred if they informed us when they removed it.
Saves lots of confusion and many more sarcastic comments...

lol, i think it's easier if we just encourage emjay to be subscriber? how much does it cost and does it allow them to post commercial stuff?

I'm sure emjay can host a forum for this stuff.

Or I could host a forum for emjay to post, if that helps. lol.

Emjay should do a sponsorship for this forum like how distros do it in HWZ.

Actually Emjay can just post in the price list thread as a price update instead of making it like a mass order.

Emjay is working on this, hopefully they'd become one of the advertisers here so they'd be able to promote their stuff here w/o any problem :)

mm..I can understand forum rules may not allow business-related posts here. Perhaps Emjay can post an announcement pointing us to their website http://www.emjay1984.biz/ . So far exept for the Pentax logo, no info to indicate their product line or even that they are the distributor. But slurp slurp...the price is good....;)
