Policies

This page simply exists so that, if anything were to change, it can be noted here for clarity.

Infinite Lives is written and maintained by Jenn Frank. We also feature periodic blogs and retrospectives by our only contributor, Kevin Bunch. Our editorial direction is increasingly fluid.

Advertising

We are now experimenting with Project Wonderful ad space (which is not monetized in the traditional sense) and shoutouts to our pals at GelaSkins, Busted Tees, and Shanalogic, three small businesses that we admire.

If you’d like to advertise on Infinite Lives, please visit our Project Wonderful campaign page here (and also here)! It’s so easy!

Alternatively, you could always donate directly to our hosting bills. We actually prefer that route. Preemptive thanks!

Comments and Community

If this is your first time leaving a comment, only your first comment is held for review. Commenting requires that you leave your email address—we cannot promise that you won’t receive unsolicited spam about the Secret Newsgroup, but it will be used for no other purpose.

Even approved comments may not appear immediately. Don’t panic!

This site supports gravatars and OpenIDs. You may also format your comments using Textile markup language, if you’d like.

Because this site is powered by WordPress, emoticons are also supported.

We recently implemented threaded comments! We’re not sure we like them yet. By all means, please experiment with them! (However, be warned: they only nest yea-far, maybe three replies deep. This is not a glitch.)

As yet, there is no enforceable commenting policy. Our readership is small and friendly and not scary. If that were to change, the new policy will be noted here. Thus far, however, comment deletion has been discretionary as per our prejudices. Bans are by IP.

Editorial Transparency

Blog entries have been edited or deleted without warning or reason. Should this site publish guest blogs in the future, this policy will also change.

Now that our site’s writing is accountable to more than one person, blogs will not be deleted, with two exceptions, including that one “Sex in Second Life” entry. (You can still read that entry—and so much more!—for a nominal fee.)

We will draw your attention to most edits.
