Author profile guidelines

Requirements

All author profiles must adhere to these guidelines. Profiles must be:

  1. Public - which allows all our readers to view your profile
  2. Authentic - a profile must be about a real person
  3. Complete - with all required information filled in
  4. Readable and well-written - formatting is not supported
  5. Appropriate - pictures and all content must not be offensive

Reasons for unapproved profiles

We often decline a profile because it:

  1. Contains advertising or spam
  2. Uses fake or stock images
  3. Is inauthentic or references a fake person
  4. The long description and short description are too similar
  5. Contains spelling or grammar mistakes

If your profile change is not approved, please review the above criteria and try again.
