Gay Authors: Why do we have rules?

Posted by , in Site News 11 April 2014 - * * * * * · 740 views
Important, site rules, moderation
I don't think most people here on Gay Authors truly realize the amount of time involved in running the site. Even when things are quiet, we have a constant flow of new stories requiring moderation and a regular flow of new members. There is a steady flow of support requests to help people out with various issues they are having. And, of course, with an ac...

bottom feeding scumbags, theives
I am well and truly disgusted that I am being forced to make this post. However, there have been several incidents both on and off-site recently with people outright stealing other people's work and claiming as their own.

I hope that is as clear as I can possibly make it. When we find...

What is Free?

Free, site news, Business Costs and 1 more...
"Free" is a concept in our society that is being a bit overplayed. We call GA a "free" site, but the truth is that it is not free. Nothing is free. It is true that we do not charge our members a fee to be able to make use of our site. It is likewise true that we do not charge authors for the privilege of posting their stories on our site. In that sense,...
