2019-02-24 REVIEW - the prime user of the reported domains appears disinterested in following our guidelines, thus he appears here with commercial intent... as such: BANNED

Attention Please and Hello @tastelesstoothpick and any/all alts or associates – reports have been received that you are frequently or only linking your site/channel and there is a concern that you may be unaware of Voat's content submission guidelines; only posting your content is seen here at Voat as a form of Spamming. Some users appear to be enjoying your content so I wanted to reach out and give you a heads-up to the guidelines that need to be followed. Please note from Voat's FAQ's:

Can I submit links to sites I operate?

Submitting only links to sites you operate (or are associated with), without submitting other, unrelated links, is considered spamming... If majority of the links you submit are to sites you are associated with, your domains may be globally banned from Voat. To be on the safe side, if you submit 10 links to various subverses on Voat, at most 5 of the 10 submitted links may be to the sites you are associated with.

Other users have found that only posting your content every other post meets with our guidelines perfectly.

It is important that we all comply with Voat's rules. Should you choose not to, some of the other rules here state that your account may be globally banned. I'm happy to provide you with some links to these, or you may find them at the bottom of every page in the FAQ and User Agreement. Please consider this to be the only rules reminder message you will likely receive. Voat is designed and supported for Personal Use Only.

Please let me know of your understanding by replying here or with any questions you may have; if you start mixing up your links a bit, every other post is a good rule of thumb, and adding some relevant comments around Voat, all unrelated to your domain and/or channels, you'll be good! Thank you.

Unfortunately, I am just seeing this message now so I apologize. A domain I use was banned recently and that's when I became aware of the rules you mentioned. I was actually trying to be honest about posting and not hiding the fact that this specific account was connected to the domain. But I do see your point and it's my fault for not seeing this warning earlier.

Not sure if the domain can be un-banned or who I would contact to do that. I do like to post here as the readers seem to like the submissions. The articles get a lot of votes and comments going.

Thanks for reaching out to me earlier and I apologize for not replying sooner. If there is a procedure to unban the domain, let me know. I'll make sure to follow the guidelines from here on out now that I am aware of them.

There's nothing I hate more than banning sites that users like, and yours was a hard one.

Let's try something new if you're game: post other content for a month, totally unrelated to yours, and I will reconsider the ban. And I don't mean just staying off Voat for a month, show us that you want to participate on the site by becoming a valued goat with other content submissions and quality commenting.

I've never done this before so you are going to be the test case. If you'd rather not try this, that's cool.

Let me know your thoughts, I look forward to hearing back. Thanks :)
