Community members who violate the Expectations of Conduct will be subject to disciplinary actions. Penalties have been put into place in order to ensure that all members treat each other and the community as a whole with consideration and respect.
An official warning may be given to a contributor who has numerous complaints against them, even if none of their posts or threads has been flagged. Three warnings will result in a one-month suspension from EdenFantasys. After the first suspension, any further incidents can result in permanent banning..
There are some actions that can result in immediate suspension or banning: defamation, bullying, threatening, spam content, fake/spam reviews, and plagiarism. These will be decided on a case by case basis. Depending on the activities in question, we reserve the right to temporarily disable your account pending your response to an e-mail from us to prevent further abuse from occurring. You will also be issued an official warning and that will remain in effect even after your account has been reinstated.
Spam content includes posts, threads, comments on reviews, product pages, and anywhere else content can be added that adds nothing to the topic - For example, “nice review” on a forum thread.
At EdenFantasys, we define plagiarism as, “duplication of information, in total or in parts, that is presented as original work”. While you can use other sources for information, you must somehow cite that it is not your original work. If we find plagiarism in a review, the review will be unpublished and your account may be disabled. This is determined on a case-by-case situation
In addition to spam, links to competitors' sites and outside affiliate links are prohibited. When found, the links will be broken or removed and a warning will be issued.
