Information icon Hello, I'm Helpsome. I wanted to let you know that I removed one or more external links you added, because they seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thank you.

WP:EL gives the guidelines for external links and under the "Links normally to be avoided" there are a few entries which I believe apply here. Number 6 - Sites that require payment or registration to view the relevant content, unless the site itself is the subject of the article, or the link is a convenience link to a citation. and number 4 - Links mainly intended to promote a website. Number 6 is relevant because users must register with your site to download the "free" work there and number 4 is relevant because every single edit you have made is to promote this website.

You said that you have added these links before and "they have never been revoked". This made me look a little deeper and unfortunately I have found that statement to be completely untrue. This talk page shows numerous IP addresses which were caught mass adding links and reverted. Some were even blocked for it. Helpsome (talk) 20:20, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
