Hi @gmacar and @klompje , I was neither agreeing nor disagreeing on the topic of self-tipping; only pointing out that it could be a probable reason for the OP’s issue.
Self-tipping is still too much a grey area, in my opinion, and Brave’s policy on it should be clearly put out there. The potential to be flagged seems mostly random (*random here meaning mostly tip amount, from very large to as little as 20-something), judging by Creators’ own accounts found across the Web. Even Brave staff and help have/ had conflicting advice out there on this topic that further confuses, unless you see what happens around May '20…
For example, post #7 in “Self tipping for creators” is it’s fine, then you go to post #11 three months later and it’s stop doing it.
In “Self tipping is allowed or not?”, post #2 & 6 are back to it’s okay, but…. until an official no, it really isn’t with the final post…
It seems to me a resounding decision was made by Brave to not favour self-tipping around May '20, so I feel more comfortable telling Creators they shouldn’t do it… but of course it’s really up to them.
Edit: These aren’t rando users giving this advice in the links I provided, either… it’s Asad and Mattches. Also, there’s a mixture of both ads and grants being discussed, but mainly ads. I won’t pretend to know about Grants, but it seems their ending happened around October, months after Asad and Mattches advised people to stop self-tipping. I could be wrong and welcome corrections, if so.
