I read through the post/article at https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/1402 but one thing I am wondering which I am not sure about, even given the guidelines there. What if the person publishing the article here already published it somewhere else, like on their own website, before submitting it to MetaQuotes. It has not yet been the case as far as I know, and it is definitely not the case for me now, but it might come up in the future. I read through alot of the articles and posts related to this one and the newer one at https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/6814, and have not seen any specific information covering this for sure.
Also, the way it appears now, they only allow publishing through the MQL5.com side of things, even if it is specifically for MQL and/or MT4 side of things.
The below is copied from the 1402 article for reference if anyone is interested.

I got the question first time :) Although my site isnt self hosted (yet), I find a good rule of thumb is to just avoid sites that want to take away rights to my own content, and don't get bogged down in the fine print.
Use your own content for yourself. Build it, and they will come... maybe. I would not waste time publishing articles at sites with such restrictive use for the author. Put it somewhere better. It's just a click/google search away..
