Why don't you post an example of them on youtube or similar site? That way, anyone who's interested can see them.
you mean not show my own website, which features two videos including a tutorial, but youtube or vimeo? (vimeo might have a problem with that)
I probably thought it could still be considered self-promotion if I did that and paste the link here.
However, yes, youtube is a good suggestion, thanks.
All I wish is to let users know that certain film effects are no longer available ONLY as very expensive or difficult to access stock footage.

As you have no doubt already seen on this page http://forums.adobe.com/thread/414764
"Self-promotion and signatures:
The Adobe Forums do not provide for automatic signatures in your messages. But you can put information, such as a personal web page, in your forum profile. When users click your name or avatar they will be taken to your profile page, where they can find your URL and a short bio. To edit your profile, click the Your Stuff link in the bar at the top of the forum, select Profile from the list, and then click Edit Profile.
If you have a link that is germane to the topic under discussion you can post that in your message. But we discourage links to commercial sites. Forum hosts may remove links at their discretion."
Any forum moderator (there are currently three of us on the Pr forums) can decide a particular post is self-promoting, and so delete it. This judgement cannot be made until there is such a post. I would not try ahead of time to describe how to word any promotion so as to make it "safe."
I have read that. I have total respect of forums TOU and for this I wrote this post.
Indeed there are parts of the sections you pasted above that left me slightly confused and not sure.
However, I have followed the wise advice so far and updated my profile.
Back to the visual effects I was talking about,
Here is a clip I would like to show you where just a few out of many more example are shown:

Thank you again for your kind assistance,
I certainly appreciate that you wish to observe the spirit as well as the letter of the TOU, and especially that you first asked for an opinion.
In the example you posted, I do not see that including a link to a youtube clip is spam per se. However, after viewing your clip, I do consider the content at the end of the clip to be clearly self-promoting in terms of items for sale, If the entire clip just showed your effects, my response might be different. Remember, the url of your personal web site can be included in your profile.
I apologise if that was the case.
I understand the point made though there was no intention
to hand over blatant self-promotion.
sorry again for causing akward impressions.
> Remember, the url of your personal web site can be included in your profile.
As I said I have already updated my profile.
you and the moderator for your time and direct answers.
No need to apologze.
I guess I did not make clear that I am a moderator here.
Also, please feel free to exhibit any sample of your editing skills, especially if it is done on Premiere Pro.
