To publish awesome ideas and get lots of likes, the first step is for your publications to be visible to the public. This means you need to make sure that your ideas do not get hidden or unsuggested for violations of the house rules.
TradingView moderators will hide ideas that violate the house rules, the most common cases are where authors provide links or references to their social media or websites, aiming at self-promotion.
A hidden idea is no longer visible to the public, only to you and to TradingView moderators. Since the idea descriptions cannot be changed either by you or by the TradingView team, these ideas cannot be made visible again, which is a shame for the time you took to analyze and publish it, right? Please read the House Rules carefully to avoid this from happening.
TradingView aims at showing ideas that offer a good analysis on the chart and a good description. To achieve that, we unsuggest ideas that:
An unsuggested idea will not appear on the homepage or in popular ideas streams, which limits its exposure.
It will only be visible in newest idea streams, to users that visit your profile or who have the direct link to your publication.
Let’s go over some examples of what makes a good idea publication. To make it more clear, we’ll also provide an idea that is not the best example for this category. Click on any of the links to see the details of the publication.
Balance: clear, no clutter, professional, not too overwhelming.

Include a specified bias on the idea and disclose if you are long or short. Make sure you let people know where the exit or entry point is on the trade and mention how long the trade could last.
