Please read the SW:K Forum Rules (click me)

mimartin was entirely correct in his Moderation. Resurrecting month old threads with a sentence long reply violates Rule 8. f) of the Forum Rules

You neither used the edit function, nor did you add anything substantial to the thread in question; you just in fact spammed it with a post which contained nothing new to the conversation, and indeed your previous post (1 post above your now deleted one) contained far more detail.

What you did also, incidentally violates rule 6 of the forum rules too;

Please do not make posts simply to move the topic back up to the top of the forum. This is called ‘bumping’ and is not allowed. If people have something relevant to post on that topic, they will.
It also breaks Rule 5. a) on spamming too;

Your posts did not contribute anything new to the discussion and as such were spam.

That someone was mimartin, and he was again correct with reference to it being spam.

You added nothing to either topic, and resurrected threads which had seemingly run there course. If it happened for a similar reason does that not tell you something? Furthermore I hope I have addressed exactly what you did wrong.
