  • Who are Followers? How can I Follow other members?

    Followers are site members who seem to have liked your advice and decided to follow you, so that next time when you post a question, an opinion, a reply, or a myTake, they can get notified. They are your fans! If you are uneasy about someone following your activities, no worries; you can block them.

    To follow a member you can go to the member’s profile and click Follow. If someone follows you first, you can easily follow them back by clicking on the "buddy" icon in the top right corner of the "box" where their username is.

    If, at any point, you would like to stop following someone, simply click Unfollow from their profile page or your Following list. On Desktop, you can also hover your mouse over a username on questions/opinions and click the Follow icon (buddy icon) to Follow them.

    When another member follows you, you will see a notification next to your Follows menu item, on your profile and in your drop down menu. If your profile is private, you will receive a notification to let you approve or deny the follow request from that user.
  • What are Most Helpful Opinions (MHO)?

    A Most Helpful Opinion (MHO) is an Opinion the Question Asker or myTake Owner voted as Most Helpful to them.

    Users can select two MHO's for their questions and myTakes; one girl opinion and one guy opinion. The MHO selected opinions appear on top of all other opinions on the Question/myTake page; with a blue and pink star. To select a MHO on your post, click the "mho" icon with a star located on the bottom right of the opinion you want to select, then click "okay."

    The Question Asker or myTake Owner earns 1 Xper point for selecting MHO per gender. So they can earn up to 2 Xper points for selecting an MHO for each gender. The Opinion Owner awarded MHO earns 7 Xper points.

    To be able to select MHO for your questions and myTakes, you must wait 24 hours after posting the question/myTake. If the Question Asker or myTake Owner does not select MHO for a gender within 30 days, the system will automatically choose one MHO for that gender. Selection criteria is based on several different attributes. The Question Asker or myTake Owner does not earn Xper points for these auto-selections but the Opinion Owner will earn +3 Xper points.

  • What are the rules for posting on GirlsAskGuys? Why was my post removed?

    GirlsAskGuys reserves the right to edit content to ensure quality and to remove content that is inappropriate or abusive. We will remove content that breaks the law, is indecent or obscene, which defames anyone based on race, religion, disability, etc, or which is otherwise viewed as offensive by contemporary community standards.

    A Moderator, Super Moderator, or Uber Moderator may hide your post if it is considered to be against the site rules. Or an Admin may directly remove your post. A hidden post will be re-evaulated by our Admin team and if the Moderator decision is right it will be removed from the site permanently. In some cases an Admin can reinstate a Moderator hidden post.

    When a post of yours is hidden or removed you will receive a message with a general explanation as to why your post was hidden or removed. If you think the decision was not right please send a message through Contact and we will check the decision to remove the post. Please DO NOT post Questions/myTakes asking why specific posts were removed, as those Questions/myTakes will be removed as well. Come to us with those questions :-)

    Our general posting guidelines are as follows:

    Adult Topic – These are posts that contain overly sexual content posted by users under 18. Our members must be 18+ to ask “how to” sexual Questions. Posts that provide too many sexually graphic details by a member who is under 18 are removed for their protection. This is sexually related content that would not be presented in a high school Sexual Education course.
    For example, for those under 18, a Sexuality Question such as, "Why do guys get pleasure from nude pics?" is fine while "Best way to turn on a guy friend?" is not.

    Antagonistic – While we encourage lively debate, personal attacks and posts that bait or antagonize are removed. Sometimes it’s just a matter of rephrasing it so that it doesn't have a hostile tone.
    For example, "You're an idiot!" will be removed.

    Duplicate – If you've already posted a particular Question/myTake, please do not post it again as it will be removed. If you’re wanting more Opinions, please consider featuring the Question (750 Xper points) or share it via social media.
    Also, duplicate accounts are never allowed under any circumstances. We only allow each member ONE GirlsAskGuys account so as to avoid clutter within the site.

    Explicit – These are posts that contain depictions of overly graphic violence or sexually explicit details (text, images, videos or links) that are considered poor quality content. Full nudes and posts that encourage or glorify bestiality/incest are removed as explicit. Sexual responses to non-sexual Questions are also removed for this reason.
    Pictures that cover genitals and women's nipples are allowed. .

    Grammar – If your post has so many abbreviations or spelling/grammar mistakes, it will be removed. Also, please remember to post only in English. We do have a Turkish site: KizlarSoruyor.com, a Spanish site: EllasSaben.com. However, Replies in other languages are allowed.
    For example, “i wld luv tht 2 b awsm.” will be removed.

    Member Posts – We do not allow members to talk negatively of other GAGers in posts.
    For example, "[username] is a stupid jerk!" will be removed.
    - ALL *Questions and Takes* about specific members in a negative way are removed as Member Posts.

    No Sexuality Topic – All sexuality related Questions/myTakes must be in one of the two sexuality topics (sexual Behavior or Sexual Health). If a sexual Question/myTake is posted without a sexuality topic, it will be reported by our moderation team.

    Nonsense – Posts that are irrelevant to GirlsAskGuys, or posts that don’t contain enough details will be removed. If the post is so unrelated or pointless that it will annoy our members or if the entry does not have details at all for it to make sense, it will be removed.
    For example, “Why did the chicken cross the road?” "Help me with my homework!" or "Ask me anything!" will be removed.

    Offensive – If your post contains content that is blatantly insulting, degrading or distasteful, it will be removed. Healthy debates are encouraged, but blatant racism, sexism, and attacks towards groups of people are not.

    Spam – If you include links or personal information for the sole purpose of advertisement or solicitation, your post will be removed. If the post is just advertisement or solicitation, it will be removed.
    - Questions/myTakes only asking for others to chat will be removed as Spam.

    Underage - Members must be at least 13 years old to be a part of GirlsAskGuys. All posts and accounts from members under 13 will be removed from the site and their membership cancelled.

    How Do I Look topic - If the question or myTake should belong to the “How Do I Look” topic but instead was shared in another topic, it will be reported by our moderation team.

    Suicidal Tendencies - Posts that glorify suicide, questions asking ways to commit suicide or giving suicide ideas, or opinions that encourage suicide will be removed. Example: “What’s the best way to commit suicide”, “Go kill yourself.” These posts are removed and we send the user a help message informing them how to get help.
