So, after nearly a week we have more info on what happened with AQNB’s Instagram account (@aqnb). It was disabled for “violating community guidelines”. Since it first disappeared, we’ve tried contacting people at Instagram and Facebook, however our pleas remain unanswered and we still need your help to recover this critical piece of our platform. What’s ironic is that we’ve always followed the community guidelines.
We’ve volunteered and fundraised tirelessly for years to #keepAQNBalive. As the publication reaches its first decade of existence, getting deactivated without notice has abruptly placed its already precarious future into further uncertainty. It’s so frustrating and sad feeling like this platform is falling apart… but none of us want to give up it yet. We want to get back online and over this. Here’s how you can help us move forward:
- Like, comment, share this post. Tag @instagram and mention the deactivated @aqnb below and on stories! We need another boost!
- “Report a problem” to Instagram (slides 3-5). This signals to the algorithm and can help reverse the problem.
- Donate or subscribe to our Patreon! Losing our account has resulted in AQNB missing out on opportunities. We have many exciting projects for the rest of the year. Help us keep going and bring them to you.
- Sign up to our mailing list. If all else fails, we’ll keep you updated via this single stable medium.
Thank you. More updates soon.**
