Community Guidelines Update
Share this post
Today we rolled out an update to our Community Guidelines on the topic of spam.
Kickstarter creators are encouraged to share their projects with their friends, fans, and followers, however invading inboxes with unwanted messages is not allowed. Spam is more than just a nuisance — it makes every other project look bad by association.
We've always been aggressive in policing spam both on-site and off. Spamming can result in someone's account and project being suspended. Today's guidelines update clarifies exactly what we mean when we say don't spam. Spam is:
- Emailing or direct messaging strangers about your project.
- Sending unsolicited @-replies on Twitter.
- Using email lists from third parties or soliciting backers of other Kickstarter projects.
- Link-bombing forums.
- Promoting a project on other projects' pages.
