Offenses that may get Your Account Restricted:

  • Using two or more accounts. Only one account per person, and per internet connection is allowed.
  • Using any kind of automation to tip authors; this includes using bots, macros, etc.
  • Spamming the comments to get people to sign up to one service / product or another.
  • Spamming the comments. Period. Please do not go around commenting on other peoples articles and ask them to tip  your content or follow you.
  • Trying to cheat our system in any way. :)

 

Offenses that may get Your Authorship Revoked:

  • Copy / pasting someone else's content. Be that articles, images or videos. Embedding videos from Youtube and using CC0 content (publicly available images from pixabay.com for example) is OK.
  • E-Begging posts, aka asking for donations OR asking for tips and to trade tips. Sorry, but we cannot allow these. If you publish posts asking for donations, or if you create posts where you ask users to tip you or to trade tips, your account may also be banned.
  • Publishing spun content or content of very low value. We are committed to hosting only content that other people would like to read or watch. A good test to figure out whether or not you are breaking this rule is to answer the following question: Would you like to read what you've just written and are about the publish? If the answer is no, please don't publish the piece on Publish0x.
  • Using your blog / post on Publish0x as a landing page for a shady offer.
  • Publishing anything illegal.
  • Reposting the same articles multiple times over time.
  • Publishing posts in hopes to get a bounty reward is ok, but you need to disclose this within the post.
  • Using a name of a brand for your own blog. If you do use names like "Etherum", "Splinterlands", "Publish0x" or any name of another brand, be aware that we may edit the name of your blog at a future date.
  • Using tags that are irrelevant to the content within your post. If everyone would use tags that are not relevant to the posts that they are publishing, the tags on Publish0x.com become useless and meaningless.
