What content is not allowed
This is probably the place to look first. We think it's easier to define what we don't want, as it makes the process more transparent. Some of these are borderline, so please interpret them in the spirit of twiends:
Adult content - We don't permit highly explicit content on twiends. In future we may provide an adult filter for certain less-explicit content too.
Violence, Hate speech - Generally not accepted.
Gambling - We've accepted some of these in the past, but we've noticed that they do lead to a spam problem. Most of these will be rejected.
Affiliate pages - Some of these will be rejected. We assess the quality of these and whether they lead to spam. Low quality and spammy affiliate content will be rejected.
Broken links - If your page is broken or not found it will be rejected.
Flagged as unsafe - If a browser flags your content as unsafe it will be rejected.
Spamming, Hacking sites - We don't permit sites that promote this activity.
Low Quality - If we think is page's quality is too low we will reject it.
Loads too slowly - If your page takes a long time to load we will reject it. Pages should load within a few seconds.
Redirection - We permit shortened URL's at the moment, but we don't permit strange or excessive redirection.
Dating - This is borderline. Generally avoid adding dating content. Some of the dating content we have come across is inappropriate.
Adverts only - If your website contains excessive adverts we will reject it.
Neobux, Adf.ly, Feedburner - We don't permit these anymore because they bring spam onto the site.
Automation software - Automation software for social networks like Twitter is generally not permitted by twitter, so we don't permit it either.
ToS Infringement - If your content infringes on the terms of service of any of the networks we integrate with we will reject it.
Copyrighted content - We don't allow illegal download sites.
PTC - As these tend to be accompanied by spammers we don't permit PTC sites anymore.
Make Money Sites - Generally we reject make money sites if we think they may lead to spam problem.
Duplicate submissions - You can only add content once, if we find duplicates we will remove the duplicates.
RSS feeds - These tend to create a spam problem. We don't want raw RSS feeds added to the site.
Popups - These are sometimes hard to spot, but we don't like browser disrupting popups.
Plugins - If we find a site that tries to load a plugin we will generally reject it. We unfortunately just have no way to know whether the plugin is malicious or not.
Ponzi Schemes - We don't allow pyramid schemes as they create a spam problem for us on the site.
