No, I have not messaged them. Do members get an automated message when their
resource is hidden?
I'm not sure it would be reasonable to send members a custom or non-automated
message about inappropriate uploaded links. It's not something we currently do.
My only concern was that perhaps whoever built that web app may have used
inkscape or part of Inkscape, to make it function. And I don't know how to find
clues about that, if that was the case.
I didn't test it out, to find out if it produces vector images. If it does,
perhaps it would be reasonable to allow one link? I'll give it a simple test.
I don't know if we have a bit in the CoC about re-posting entries
are under moderation.
The short answer is 'no'. The longer answer (which I've purposely avoided
mentioning in the past) is that I think the CoC is too vague for the purpose of
moderation. It's fine as an umbrella for the community, but to me, there are
too many details which are not touched on or explained. (my avoidance has been
because the reply is probably going to be - 'why don't you write a better
one?' - haha). (And certainly it's way too vague for the forum, which is why I
intend to make sure a more appropriate one is created for the forum.)
Anyway, thanks for your comments. I will go ahead and hide the new upload
(unless it turns out that it's making vector images).
(It might be that I happened to have removed it so quickly after it was
uploaded, that the member may have thought they overlooked it, or something went
wrong, and was uploading it for the first time, when it was the 2nd.)

If you've messaged the poster about the original link, then you can go
ahead and delete this re-posting. It's not really related to Inkscape
as far as I can see and so long as the user is aware that if they keep
posting these images without an explanation, or description, or preview
image or anything that would make the resource useful or appropriate.
Then their user account is going t get moderated.
I don't know if we have a bit in the CoC about re-posting entries that
are under moderation.
