    I noticed your "no soliciting" rule. However it specifies anything considered "advertising bots". My thread was obviously personally and not an auto post as well as it was more of a fun post showing how cool the game was then it was advertising since I make ZERO monetary claims for the channel and never will.

    Here is the Forum rules:

    I feel it needs to be fixed and clarified as I 100% thought this was going to be cool.

    Also if you can not post videos about a Star wars game on a Star Wars forum why the heck have the forum? I mean if you watch the video it is pretty plain to tell that I am highly involved in the Battlefront community. Heck even my clan the "Corellian Smugglers" which have been around since Battlefront 1(2004) are fully dedicated to star wars and it is pretty obvious.

    Should make a rule "No linking videos". Because advertising generally assumes people want monetary gain in a shape or fashion. I wasn't trying to sell you anything only to show people a fun video full of cool memories I experienced.

    - Of course I have no say here but ultimately I figured of all places a Star Wars fan site would love the video. Sorry if it was an inconvenience. Have a wonderful day.

    Would it have been better in this section?
    Since it is dedicated to fan films and creations?

    Creating a thread specifically to promote your personal YouTube channel constitutes advertising regardless of the monetization of a given video - and is, in fact, something bots do, hence is considered under our clause (regardless of whether or not the poster in question is a bot). Sharing videos is not, in and of itself, prohibited. If you have further questions about our advertising prohibitions feel free to PM me.
