It might happen that your bot submission is rejected by a moderator. It's unfortunate, but sometimes it happens in order to enable best possible user experience, while using Telegram Bots and StoreBot.
Possible reasons for bot rejection:
No / bad description provided. Even if you specified a bot description in Botfather, you have to separately provide it, while submitting a bot to StoreBot. Please, provide descriptive text that actually explains what your bot does. Try to avoid putting website or contact information in your bot's description.
Not working / No response. If your bot isn't doing anything yet, we recommend you to postpone submitting it on the platform. Sometimes, it might also happen that the bot is down, while moderator checks the bot. In this cases, please fix the issue and resubmit.
Misleading call to action. Bots who mislead users (e.g. Rate this bot 5 stars on StoreBot or you can't use it and similar) will be rejected. Please don't do scam. It's nasty. If you try to cheat and add this behaviour after we accepted your bot we will issue an violation and your bot will be removed from the charts immediately.
After you fix the issues, please resubmit the bot using developer menu: http://storebot.me/mybots
