Elementcases tried to reach out to the forums

I've just heard that element was not allowed to post here on the forums . Why is that ? I would love to know why . I would also love to have them present here on the forums .

Companies will be banned if they use the forums to promote their products.

From the Forum Rules...

Your purpose in joining MacRumors or posting should not be to promote, advertise, or otherwise call attention to your site, blog, product, or business.
They can post as a Vendor as long as they follow these rules...

As a representatives of a vendor business you may post about your company or products or services when the following 5 conditions apply:
You have made your vendor affiliation clear by filling in the Vendor Name and Vendor URL fields in your user profile and setting About Me to Everyone in your profile privacy options.
  • You are posting about Apple-related hardware, software, accessories, or services.
  • You represent, work for, or own a manufacturing, wholesale, distribution, or retail business (including software vendors).
  • You are replying to forum posts to answer questions when your product/service is particularly relevant to the question. Example: Your company or product was mentioned by name or your product suits a specific requirement being discussed.
  • The purpose of the post is to help forum members, not merely to benefit your organization.
Vendors must not use these privileges to...
  • Repeatedly mention their products in general discussion threads, even those about their market area, start threads to discuss, promote or advertise their business, products, or services.
  • "Badmouth" competing companies or products.
  • use the forums to carry out business operations, e.g., solicit feedback, provide customer service, announce special deals, promos, or new products.
