My First Post Deleted by psuLemon elisamyfitnesslady — May 08, 2018 01:42PM PDT

I was really happy to become a member of this website and eager to write my first post. I got really shocked to receive a warning and having my post deleted for advertising. I am not doing any commercial here and didn't post any link. I would have appreciate something a bit more precise (and sweet) about what I actually did to get such a cold welcome? :(

Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us. Our guideline states you may not post any links or mentions of other services, websites, or businesses from which you or an associate might benefit financially or otherwise, including any sites that compete with MyFitnessPal. This includes, but is not limited to posts that contain links to offsite blog posts and social media. You also may not solicit off-Forum contact from which you might benefit, e.g. “message me for more info,” “I can get you free samples,” etc. We also don’t allow requests for charitable contributions, donations, competitions, or requests for votes in any venue.

We do not read everything that comes across our boards. We rely on our users use the Flag > Report Post function when we need to look at something. So if your post received a warning, it’s because it was reported to us, and our moderation team felt it violated a guideline.

Here’s some information:
• Warning point system:

• Community Guidelines:

We hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other problems or questions.

All the best,
MyFitnessPal Community Staff
