Hey there, welcome to DBH, I’m a forum mod. You may notice that your topic in the forum about your design disappeared, that’s because that is considered “spam”. People can see your design on the voting page, no need to promote it in the forum, if everyone did that the forum would be flooded with “Hey check out my design!” posts. If you want to promote utilize sites like twitter, facebook, myspace, a personal blog or what have you. Good luck with your designs, see you around.
