A few important rules that you should keep in mind before you publish an idea on TradingView?

1. Make ideas understandable.
When publishing content, make sure to write an easy-to-read title and a thoughtful description so that everyone can get the gist of your published work and the reasoning behind it.

2. All content should be ad-free.
Any advertisement such as logos, links, or references to any website, social media, messaging or email contacts, company names, or wallet addresses, will invite action from the moderators. All content has to be free from promotion.

3. Publish in the same language as the site you’re on.
Writing in one language when the audience reads in another is just a waste of time and energy, so please make sure to stick to the language of the TradingView subdomain you’re on. If you’d like to publish or chat in another tongue, please click on the language selector in the top bar menu and select the desired dialect.
