I just want to ask a question if I am doing something against the rules

There is a rule that states:

12. No duplicate posting in multiple boards (except for re-posting it in the local language boards if it's translated).

This is what I have done:

I replied in a certain post in META:

As far as I know, we just need to improve how our posts can be useful for other members and have the nature of education or information good and new ,,
Previous with Activity we can go up rank, now added a new rule in the presence of merit ,,
The presence of merit may want to show the quality of the Bitcointalk forum, so not much spam etc ,,
In this forum can share knowledge and even share solutions ,,

How do you think, how to get better merit ?

and this is my reply:

As I learn and read posts in the forum, these are my recommendatios:

The definition of Quality Post is subjective

One member may find your post as "quality post" then will give you a merit while other members may just engage you with a discussion without giving any merit.  Hence, I would like to suggest that just make it a habit to post something substantial and always (yes, always) be mindful of the rules of the forum.  Prevent yourself to be part of the ignored list of the merit sources.

Start Small

Just start small.  You can start on the things that you know or your experiences that you want to share.  I know that being a newbie, it feels like we cannot contribute anything in the forum because we have just little knowledge compare to the veterans.  However, I think some members would like to hear your stories of success, failures, learning, and not learning, and the like.  You can also post topic that interests you, in that way you can provide good insights by using your passion on the subject as the motivation/fuel to make a good post.

Start with "Beginners & Help" Category

You can start posting in the Beginners & Help category for you to ask questions and to be familiar with the forum.  It is advisable also that the target audience of your first posts are newbies (in relation with the previous point "Start Small").

I realized that what I have replied might be helpful to Newbies hence I made a new thread in the Beginners & Help Category with the same post and I just add some more inputs.  I also included in this post that this is inspired on the above posts.

This is my post in the Beginners & Help Category:

How to Have Quality Posts

Did I break the rule?
Your opinion matters.
If ever it is against the rule then I will not do it again.

Thank you.

Your translation is wrong. Look at these posts from  the poster. This is called duplicate contents in multiple boards.

In your case, you could reply on the topic instead of creating a new topic for yourself however it happens, not a big deal. Next time make sure you do not do that again.
