I'm fairly new to Bubblews but I'm already getting the impression that they're unreasonably strict about links. As you say, you're not going to gain anything by linking to Kiva, but it almost seems as though you can't link to any other site.

Thanks for sharing your experience. This will help other users out as well.

I think &laksh is right and hope Bubblews reconsider its decision and pays you.

Thank-you, &spring28 for your post. Because of it, I went back and removed some links I had included in one of my articles. I don't know how admin here interprets "commercial endorsement," so I played it safe, although, like you, no money could be made from going to the sites I suggested.

wow, I would not have thought that to be a TOS violation.

I think the whole point is that we cannot post referral/affiliate links in our bubbles.
Good for you to keeping a +Positive attitude!

+Nafets yes. i will always be grateful to Sir Avi. I'm sure he wants to help me so I won't have the same mistakes next time =)

At least, you were warn not to promote refferal links in your posts. I am sure Avi's intentions were good and he will give you another chance

Oh I've changed my mind,hehe!. I won't delete the whole article about Kiva, I'll just delete the link. What is the essecnce of Speak your mind, Write your World if I can't write something that will help someone? If you can't write about good news? That's what Bubblews is all about, right?

+Cpefly thank you my friend.. Next time I'll be careful and won't post any referral links even it is a nonprofit site. Just to be on the safe side, I'll delete the article.

+Laksh Your right! How can it be for commercial purposes when you just wanna help and spread the good news? But we can do nothing now. The Bubblews Team will always have the "final say."

&spring28 I've seen them putting that on a lot of articles with referral links. I think that might be what it is, but Kiva is a nonprofit site, so I don't know why they would do that. :( Just delete it. I deleted all of my posts I had any referral links or that were about websites I liked. I don't know what violates the rule and what doesn't, so I wanted to be safe.

+Emge really? Kiva is a scam? I don't know that.. I thought it is a good site because as I have read in other sites it is a charity site. And yes I'm still thankful that someone in Bubblews Team especially BubblewsSupport1 answered my queries. At least I know now the reason why they wouldn't pay me

+Cpefly maybe because of the referral link. But I thought it was okay to do that because as I have seen here, they also put referral links whenever they promote something.

I don't see how that one violates the TOS because it is a charity site. :(

I am glad you have got a reply, as i did not get any reply after 2 unpaid redemptions and 219 ALL ORIGINAL articles written only by me. Ha ha its a scam site, almost

KIVA is a microfinance organisation and helps poor people throughout the world through the micro loans given by us. If we let others know about it through a post, I don't think it has any COMMERCIAL PURPOSE as we are not selling any micro finance products here!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOw on earth is it violation of rules???????
