    StumbleUpon penalized

    I started using their service yesterday. I favorited 94 sites and gave 30 reviews.

    The problem is I didn't know I shouldn't submit own pages. I submited 10 pages and now I can not submit anymore own pages. I don't have problem with that I can not submit my pages any more but the bigger problem is that domain was probably penalized and I am worried I won't received so much traffic anymore.

    How much time do you think penalization can remain?

    Another question: Is it allowed to use company name as username?

    Thank you

    I think the site has been banned you temporarily, because in one day you have done a lot.
    Yes, but now-a-days they are recording user's IP address. So if banned, it may be not that easy. Try from diff. IP and user name, but a bit slow.

    it is not the problem I can not submit my pages again, I wouldn't do it anyway because I know now it is against their rules. But because of that the site may get less traffic if other users submit as it is penalized. That is the problem I am wondering how long it can remain that penalty.
