Level 1 (1-month ban):

1st offense of plagiarism, backlink spam, or content spam (accidental).

If it was determined an “accident” somehow that you copy-pasted without mentioning the source you copy-pasted from. Your ban will just last 1 month. If your ban hasn’t been removed after 1 month, please contact our support team.

Level 2 (permanent ban):

2nd offense of blatant plagiarism, backlink spam, or content spam (no longer accidental).

Your account will be permanently banned and any live articles will be taken down...lost to the ether.

If you feel there was a mistake and you shouldn’t have been permanently banned, please contact our support team.
