TipRanks Community Guidelines

Home/Glossary/T/TipRanks Community Guidelines

The TipRanks Community is the place to share your opinions and learn what others have to say about stocks.

It is open to all levels of investors.

Please follow our guidelines to ensure your comments appear and to assist us in keeping this a valuable welcoming space.

By participating in the Community, you agree to its guidelines.


  • Represent yourself. Do not present yourself as any other person, real or invented. Do not state or suggest that you are connected to a person or organization that you are not associated with.
  • Be respectful. It’s OK to disagree with an opinion; it is not OK to be rude.
  • There is a zero-tolerance policy for hateful or offensive comments, including racial, ethnic, gender, stereotypical, or others.
  • Mocking, harassing, taunting, name-calling, and other disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated, nor will comments that disparage individuals or personal traits.
  • Do not threaten, promote violence or state that you wish harm on another person. Do not make personal attacks against members, and do not stalk or harass members.
  • Comments that are harmful, vulgar, distasteful, or defamatory, libelous, or invade another person’s privacy or proprietary rights are forbidden.
  • Do not upload, post, or submit obscene content that contains profanity or masked profanity, including manipulating vulgar words.
  • Objectionable profile photos are not permitted.
  • We appreciate thoughtful criticism of TipRanks’ articles and commentary. We will not tolerate attacks against our writers or smear tactics directed at the site.


  • Stay on-topic!
  • Do not dominate the conversation or discourage others from participating.
  • Do not re-post comments that moderators have deleted.
  • Fake news, content that contains false information, or comments that we do not have the resources to verify, will be removed.
  • Do not copy-and-paste comments across threads or from other websites or forums.
  • Do not post self-promotional links.
  • Spam is not allowed. This includes excessive links to external websites, comments in all capital letters, all-bold or all-italic postings, as well as excessive blank spaces.
  • Do not upload, post, submit or otherwise make available any content that contains links to websites with objectionable or irrelevant content.


  • Do not upload, post, or submit anything that contains viruses, cancelbots, Trojan horses, harmful code, or other computer software/programs designed to interrupt TipRanks’ services.
  • You must comply with all applicable laws when participating in the TipRanks Community. Comments cannot be used for illegal purposes.
  • Do not upload, post, submit, or otherwise make available any content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships. This can include inside information, proprietary and confidential information learned or disclosed as part of employment relationships, or under nondisclosure agreements. It can also refer to content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other person’s proprietary rights.
