    According to the message you still have access and need to rectify an issue. Maybe if the page is gambling related you need to add an age restriction of 18 years and older to the page. Once you have corrected the issue simply re-publish the page again.

    I received the same email from facebook yesterday. It's not something that you want to receive after building up your facebook page over a few years.

    For gambling related pages it's better to set the age restriction to 21+. Some countries allow gambling at 18, some other at 21

    If it's been "unpublished" it means it has just been taken off-line until you rectify an issue, then you can publish it again. The issue could be something like I mentioned in my previous post above. Geez, don't give up so easily.

    Assume has a big ass on it.

    I don't know how to get your page access again but you left a great lesson to all FB page owners. We all should keep in mind for follow or like some related pages.. or any other FB pages. it show a regularity from our pager.

    I didn't feedback some response I had from an appeal process. I wanted them to publish our FB Page again and asked how we could do this as others do. This is the reply:

    Thank you for writing back. Apologies for the delay in response. To get approval from Facebook you need to agree to pay us more than $10,000 per month and also get all the necessary documents from the concerned state and submit to us for us to verify and allow you to proceed."

    Not that it really matters now, but I think it's clear from what they say, that they think we're operating an online casino or something similar. They didn't address my questions in my appeal email, they just fired this response out

    The emails took so long to answer and we were not getting anywhere that we've deleted the page now and won't waste any resource in starting another one.

    Any one else had this response?

    Happened to me recently. And I did get a response.

    Hi Mitko,

    Thanks for writing in. I'm here to help.

    Your Page was unpublished because it doesn't follow the Pages Terms. Pages may not promote real-money gambling on the platform, unless prior approval has been provided by Facebook.

    For more information, please read the Pages Terms:

    https://www.facebook.com/page_guidelines.php

    Thanks,

    Thanks,

    So I replied to this that this page has been like this for 3-4 years, and that there are millions of other similar pages and more are coming up every day. I don't get the whole closing down method. And the reply I got was:

    Hi,

    Thanks for your email.
    We are enforcing our policies globally. And soon all the pages in violation of our policies will be pulled down.

    Thanks,

    Obviously some templated response so I didn't bother after that. I just took down the links to fb, deleted my profile and that was all. After all FB is a private company getting free promotion everywhere and my sole reason to have an account was for that page. I'd respect their decission if they had closed it right away when I created it, not 4 years later. This only shows that reasoning is made up, and there's a hidden agenda behind it: money.

    Got the same message about 10 days ago. What`s worse, my page was unpublished one day after I ended a "likes campaign". I never rated facebook highly (more of a twitter guy) and I never pumped money into it, but I thought "let's give it a try once". I felt robbed and like an idiot. I will delete my facebook account if this doesn`t get fixed.

    I exhanged three e-mails with them. The first two were identical to what xecutable received. The third was another crappy one.
    Presence of gambling advertisements on your websites which are mentioned on the Facebook page is in violation of our guidelines.
    To sum it up, they are basically saying that you can't promote your website on facebook if it has gambling links, so I gave up hope. Seems like there`s nothing we can do, personally I tried age restriction and deleting the direct links I had to bookies on facebook. I like how they are saying that they will enforce this globally, made me laugh. Can't wait for them to block ESPN or Marca, lol. I even doubt that the big gambling affiliates will be taken down.

    Theoretically it`s not a bad loss for most of us, but it is frustrating to lose a page after building it up for many years. Also, I fear that many internet users consider that a website without a facebook page is not "legit".

    If I was you, I'd take a look at the terms and see if you don't follow any of them. As said above, try putting an age restriction if your page is gambling related as that could be a problem.

    Peter if you read back through this thread as well as a few others here on the topic, using the age restriction often is not enough.

    Many have come to the conclusion if you use facebook to promote ambling it is usually a question of when the page will be shut down, not if.

    Currency Symbol is also prohibit.. You can post a link ask long as it's not really break any rules and not really looks more like half Prono..
    A Link for a jump-site probably a better idea for avoiding any blocking issues..
    They start to be really strict now and mots likely want you to pay them for more traffic.

    Hi,

    I have had my Facebook page for Online Player Association for two years and just recently they unpublished my page. I looked at the new terms and at the end of the terms, section IV. page content B: it says "Pages that promote or facilitate online gambling, games of skill, lotteries etc. blah blah blah, are only allowed in specific countries with prior authorization from Facebook."

    I replied to them saying that my page had been online for 2 years and they should have notified me about the change in terms before unpublishing my page. I then made a few changes to the page by removing casino logos and adding an 18+ image on the page. I then asked for permission to have my page and two days later is was re-published and everything is fine again.

    https://www.facebook.com/OnlinePlayerAssociation

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards

    Erogenous

    Hi,

    I didn't think appealing would have done any good but there you go.

    Good luck.

    I've had the same issue with my facebook page being unpublished.

    Currently in appeals process and not surprisingly they're taking their time... Will update if I make any progress.

    You will not. The appeal process would not work, they'd simply reply that you are not fit to promote gambling, that they work only with books directly and that it costs from 30k to 50k or whatever number the support guy/gal makes up.

    The appeal worked for me and page got republished. I was surprised.
