Was your Growmance account deactivated?

Last Updated: 2023 10 05

If you are reading this, it is probably because your Growmance account has been deactivated.  This page discusses next steps, and potential options for reinstatement.

Why you were deactivated

At Growmance, we have a strict set of community guidelines that we expect all members to follow. If you have been deactivated, it is because you have violated one or more of these guidelines. Violations are harmful to the community and to the participants in the community. We believe that marketing is the greatest social technology ever invented for solving human problems. As marketers, we have a responsibility to move society forward in a way that is good for everyone.

Summary of the community guidelines

Our guidelines are straightforward and easy to follow. Here’s a summary of what we expect from our members:

  • Post only one message, in one channel, one time per week. If you have something to promote, promote it in the channel where it is approved to be posted.
  • Don’t spam via direct messages.
  • Don’t post any link or content requests in anything but the link-exchanges channel.
  • Don’t make junk/useless posts. Content should be relevant to the channel.
  • Post in the correct channels. If there’s a specific channel, use it.
  • Don’t post ANY self-promotional content in the #general and #marketing channel. These channels, while they have the most users, also cause the most problems. Only use #general and #marketing for non-promotional, learning, or help requests.
  • Don’t change public room descriptions, even if you think it’s helpful. Reach out to a community manager for guidance.
  • Don’t change the Best Practices Wiki in a biased way to give advantage to your own products, services, courses, or other materials.
  • Don’t scrape the Growmance members list so you can spam them outside of Growmance.
  • Don’t do anything that resembles harassment. Negative comments based on race, sex, sexuality, gender, nationality, politics, appearance, history, disability, or anything that creates a hostile environment.
  • If a moderator contacts you for questionable behavior, you must stop what you’re doing immediately. If you are warned about a behavior, and the behavior is repeated, you will be banned. 2 strikes and you are out.

How to be reactivated

If you have been deactivated, you have two options for reinstatement:

  • pay a reinstatement fee of $200
  • Perform at least 8 hours of proven work to help promote the Growmance & Audienti communities and its growth.

We take our guidelines seriously, but we also believe in second chances. If you are interested in being reinstated, please fill out the web form below.

Once you have filled out the web form, we will review your submission and get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that we take our time reviewing each submission carefully, and it may take some time to get back to you.

In conclusion, we believe in a community that is built on respect, honesty, and hard work. We are committed to making Growmance a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, and we expect all members to follow our guidelines. If you have been deactivated, we hope that you will take this opportunity to reflect on your behavior and make a commitment to being a better member of the community going forward. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
