@cynabuns @NeedleStack Hello, I understand I post links to my own website but do I consider that spamming not really.I post different photos I don't just spam if I was to post the same thing more than once I would agree when you call me a spammer.

even when you look at my website Iam not trying to sell anything to anyone and My website is user friendly with no deadly marwares

So I don't really understand why a lot of people here are quick to judge a website. Is it a problem Iam not as big as imgur or

this post 48 people upvoated it and it's on number 4 in /all so it seems as if people are enjoying it.

Thank you for jumping in here so quickly, soconfuseduk; I handle much of the spam processing on the site for our Admin here on Voat.

While you may not consider this spamming because your images are all different, this is User Content Spamming here at Voat. The admins for a long time did not enforce the rules, but the rules are being enforced now, and here's what you need to know:

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 you submit niche content (for example gaming videos from your own YouTube channel), you should create your own subverse and submit the content only to that subverse. 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.

So the upshot here is, you cannot only post your own content, even if it was allowed or simply ignored in the past. We ask that you and any user associated with to be a part of the community and share other completely unrelated content.

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 banned by the site Admins. 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. I am also obliged to let you know that Voat is designed and supported for Personal Use Only.

Then the spam team at voat should look up the definition of spam everything I shared was related to the sub verse I posted it in so I can't be spam at all.

"Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people"
