I came across a bounty platform that have some bounty campaigns which have these Bitcointalk comment Bounties.
Is this allowed?

this is their rule:

Code:
your comment has to be constructive and have sense. Comments with chaotic combinations of letters/numbers/words, smiles, posts like "Cool", "Nice guys" etc. will not be accepted. Your post/message/comment has to be original and interesting. Copy-paste is not allowed.

Isn't this somewhat considered thread bumping, or no?


EDIT: They are asking to make the posts in their ANN threads.

It is still not clear to me (judging by the rule you posted).

Do that "constructive" comments have to be posted on their ANN thread? Or in every post that they made?

If it is the former, then yes they're ANN bumping. If it is the latter, sounds like a regular signature campaign for me.

Which platform is it btw?

I would suggest to make a screenshot of it or archive it for future reference especially on the ANN thread that they posted in. It would be good if it isn't a mandatory one, but if it's a must that's called bumping to make their ANN on the top of evero topics.

No, it's not. You should report such threads.

Report it. Try to include where they state this to save the mod dealing with it some time. (If its an external source e.g Discord)

Maybe that bounty platform is too vigilant and they notice this post already so it is really better if it will be archived at the moment of seeing it or provide some images that will lead on busting it.

I can not archive it however I have captured some screenshots.

XchangeCoin is filled with these bumping bots, at least the last 7-8 pages are. Profiles like judejude, AnatoleWright354, amberthomas, Williamnak have plagiarized sentences shilling in more than 20 different ANN topics since March/April. I have personally caught some of them being a scam projects.
If anyone is interested i have made a report about them here:
