Which Active Challenges Writeups are allowed

I will preface this by adding I am really new here, so I do not yet understand all about htb.

I have seen a lot of writeups for active challenges on the web, even if the rules state only retired challenges should be posted.

Are we allowed to post writeups if we do not show flags? Or are they just breaking the rules?

Thanks and sorry for the off-topic.

    Hello! You are allowed to post any writeups you wish, BUT!
    Active machines should be password protected by the root flag.
    Retired machines can be unprotected.

    Thanks a lot for the quick answer! Could you also tell me (if you know by any chance), how fast are challenges retired? (when comparing to vms it seems like they never are)

    Challenges are now getting retired slowly, I don't think theres a fixed amount of time, but they tend to retire oldest challenges
