Hi Helpsome, I was wondering why my links had been taken down. Actually, I was not self-promoting, as the The Temple Trail is a non-profit site that has never and will never generate any income. It is purely aimed at providing information about various temples and inspiring people to visit them. I felt that by sharing them on wikipedia, more people would be able to have access to this FREE, fully researched and detailed information. I would like to have the links restored, as I feel that they are of value to the community as a whole. Having said that, I would like good explanation from you as to why you feel that the work of a non-profit information site should not be shared, if you still feel that the links have no value. If you would like to know more about the work of the website, then please do look at it yourself. Thanks, Tom.

Repeatedly adding links to your own website is self-promoting. Something doesn't have to be for-profit for it to be an advertisement. You have a clear conflict of interest here so please read the how not to be a spammer section of the spam guidelines. Helpsome (talk) 18:47, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
