Ban Levels

How long will your ban last? Depends on what you did!

Level 1 (1-month ban):

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

If your offence was determined an “accident” somehow, 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):

  • 1st offense of blatant plagiarism (yeah, we don’t give 2nd chances)
  • 2nd offense of 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.
