    The thread was deleted because of links to software that was not genuine. :) x

    Being devil's advocate he but should threads only be deleted if they link to download of pirate software, if you just link to an ebay sales surly it's ebay responsibility to remove such items, as you are just linking to a item for sale. I know most of the users will know it's an not genuine version but some will not realise and just click the buy it now button.

    It's also strange that there is lots of copies of elsawin on ebay but almost all versions of ekta have been removed.

    Have to say the rules are well hidden, only found them due to this thread. http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/forum-support/173053-rules.html.

    Understand what they say I was just questioning the fact we are listing to an ebay item and not to actual software download. But I won't do it again consider my wrists slapped:asskicking: :beerchug: I take it we are still Ok saying search for "elaswin on ebay"

    Yes you may say sarch for elsawin on ebay, just please dont put the link on site. The site rules are available to read. There is a faq link below the garage button on the main forum page. :)

    Not having a go here, just saying they are difficult to find. I was asked to check the forum rules and had difficulty in finding them, also from the looks of the thread I linked to I'm also not the only person who had trouble finding them!

    I would imagine theres a good proportion of users on here with Elsawin which has come from the same place.

    And more than likely they have been steered there from users on here.
