That’s right - We don’t allow 'incentivizing' viral methods Viral methods require user action and are modally blocking (1 per action only) Manual review process in full effect to catch contextual and obfuscated violations (CSRF, Adult/Offensive Material) 100% monetization of canvas view goes to developer
