When pages are set to Unpublished (formerly "Pending Review") it means the page cannot be seen by visitors, only the logged-in page owner/creator can view and update it.
Why do Pages Get Unpublished?
- Content moderation staff
- A visitor complaint, reviewed by a moderator
- Ko-fi’s automatic moderation software
Content Guidelines Reminder
We want Ko-fi to be a fun, safe and friendly place for the creative community and we’ve designed our content guidelines to reflect that.
When we started Ko-fi we had no intention of becoming internet moderators, but we found out (rather painfully) that we must comply with PayPal and Stripe’s usage requirements as payment partners. Without payment providers there can be no Ko-fi.
Some of the most common reasons for unpublishing include content on Ko-fi or links to/from other venues containing:
- Anything illegal
- Adult content (nudity, censored nudity, sexually themed content including illustrations or prose)
- Graphic violence
- Hateful content
- Copyright or material owned by others
Why Can Links to/From Other Places Result in My Page Being Unpublished?
Ko-fi cannot be used to directly or indirectly support content or activities that violate our content guidelines. Our payment providers are very clear that even if a page contains no content that violates these policies, but is linked to or from other sites that do, we cannot offer the service.
If you believe you have not violated Ko-fi’s content policies (this does very occasionally happen) or you have updated your page and should be republished you can request a review. Pages are usually reviewed within 10 days of the request for re-review. If you would prefer to remove your account you can do so from Account & Billing and removing your account.
