How bans work

The social features on our website are free for everyone. To maintain the rights to use these features, we expect all users of our website to follow the House Rules. Failure to do so can result in a warning or a ban (ranging from 5 minutes to 1 month). 

The moderator picks the appropriate duration based on the violation and previous ban history. Warnings or short bans are typically issued for first-time or small violations and each consecutive violation, no matter the nature, will likely result in a longer ban period, until it reaches 1 week and then 1 month. These 2 measures are required to be taken before a user is banned permanently.

Exception: Immediate and permanent bans may occur when accounts are used for spamming, spreading malware, to exploit the free trial feature, publishing inappropriate or plagiarized content, and using duplicate accounts to manipulate the community or reputation numbers. 

You will receive a private message from a moderator for every warning or ban. If you don’t agree with a decision taken by the moderator, please respond to that message.

Please note that users with a paid subscription can be warned and banned from publishing content and interacting with others just like any other user. Users with paid subscriptions are no exceptions to the rules regarding the social part of our site.TradingView reserves the right to take measures deemed necessary against user actions not listed in the house rules to maintain the good function and friendly and professional nature of the platform.
