My Blog Edit was Marked as Spam



  • I'm very disappointed with Vivaldi. They offered a blog after I installed the browser. But I was blocked as spam, without doing anything or published anything. I was just customizing the blog. That's not fair. Why are they causing this disorder?]

    That's an unfortunate side effect of the very strict spam detector they use. It will only happen once.



  • @associacaogaia Happened to me too the first time I used the new blog. Seems to me like the admins have to unlock blogs of each user still personally after all this time. – This is a waste of time 😕


  • Community Manager

    @associacaogaia sorry for the trouble and thanks for reaching out. Your issue has been handled by our support team and your blog is now public.
    Happy blogging 🙂

    Fraid I have to second that.
    Just tried to simply write some lines and you get hit in the face with a message that you're trying to publish spam. Not very motivating.

    No links, no pictures, no special bling bling, only text. What triggers that spam-filter?!

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Bonjour,

    J'ai voulu créer un blog personnel pour y publier notamment mon curriculum vitae, mes savoir-faire professionnels et mon book. J'ai à peine commencé à rédiger un premier article qu'un message m'indiquant que le blog avait été marqué comme spam car ne respectant pas les conditions d'utilisations alors que, selon moi, il n'y contrevient nullement. Depuis plusieurs jours, je n'y ai plus accès.

    Aussi, pouvez-vous m'indiquer quoi faire ou me redonner directement accès au blog (voir : https://delerued.vivaldi.net/)

    Vous remerciant par avance de votre réponse ;

    Daniel

    Hello,

    I wanted to create a personal blog to publish my curriculum vitae, my professional know-how and my portfolio. I have just started writing a first article that a message telling me that the blog was marked as spam because it didn't respect the terms of use when. For several days, I haven't had access to it.

    Can you tell me what to do or give me access to the blog again (see: https://delerued.vivaldi.net/)

    Thank for your answer;

    Daniel

    @delerued If the main contact page isn't working for you, you could try messaging one of the community managers

    Click on one of their profiles, click the three dots, then click "continue chat".

    Note that they will only respond to you when they get some free time during working hours, and the main contact form is best


  • Community Manager

    @delerued désolée pour ce soucis. Je viens de retirer votre blog de la liste des spams. Merci pour votre patience. 🙏



  • @gaelle Merci pour votre intervention / Thank you for your intervention



  • The same thing happened to my blog today (mimismum . vivaldi.net). I was trying to import from wordpress export file and failed multiple times before trying to publish just one last, when the message popped up telling me my blog is marked as spam.

    I filled the please-explain-your-actions dialogue and submitted it. The admin (WP admin?) is supposed to be reviewing the blog status now. Posting here in a hope to speed the process up. Thanks your help in advance.
    Cheers,
    MM (Mimi's Mum)

    PS
    Good to be back after almost 5 years hiatus

  • @Gwen-Dragon Thanks. Shall do it right now.



  • Done. Reference 5685114762. Thanks again for your help, Gwen.
    Cheers,
    MM (Mimi's Mum)



  • And my blog also released from the custody. Yay!

    Thank you again for your help, Gwen.
    And thank you also to Jane the user support manager, for acting on my support request so quickly. Much appreciated. 👍 👍 👍

    Cheers,
    A very grateful MM, signing off.



  • The exact same thing happened to me today too! I had just finished some edits and published my first blog post, and I got the message that my blog had been marked as spam. It allowed me to send a message, which I did, and now when I go to my blog I get this message:

    "Sorry, but this blog has been marked as spam as defined in our Terms of Service.

    The admin has already been contacted to review."



  • I just have to laugh. The same thing happened again, this time to my secondary account (MM0) I have just created to start a secondary blog. I guess I have to file another support request to free this one, too.

    FYI below is what I (as MM0) submitted in the Explain-Your-Actions dialogue:

    All I did was published About page and one more post as "private", then changed the status of About page to public. No violation of ToS has been committed. Will file support request at vivaldi.

    Edit = addendum
