(FAQ is short for Frequently Asked Questions.)
Q: How much will this cost? A: check your phone plan... if you have a messaging package, this will be free or cheap; but if you don't texts typically cost 10 cents each, MMS up to 25 cents.
Q: Is there an age limit? A: Kind of. If you're under 18, we require a parental permission slip for liability reasons. We will have blank copies at the event. If you won't be with your parents, print one in advance and bring it with you.
Q: Do I need to use my real name, and will my name be public? A: No, you do not need to use your real name. We recommend you come up with a fun name that will be listed as your author name on all posts.
Q: How will you protect my privacy, and who can see my data? A: Your stories are instantly public on the site (see below for copyright details). We never reveal your cell phone number or email address on the website. Be aware that all posts are passed through a Google/Gmail spam filter, which means that Google most likely can view the contents including your phone number (just like if you had sent an email with that information to our personal Gmail account).
Q: Will I retain copyright on my submissions? A: Yes, but you also agree to let others use your images -- including us. For details, see our rules page.
Q: What are the goals, and who is behind this project? A: For the full story, read about us.
