How to remove your Gayforit account

Apparently, you cannot delete your account at all. One of our users points out:

“There is no way for a member to delete a personal account yet the site can make a members account “inactive” for whatever reasons they want and without providing notice. This is all spelled out in their TOS. However, while no longer allowing the member onto the site they retain all of the “product” and contributions of that member. So they continue to make money off of the contributions of a member that they no longer provide access to. I feel that if they have the “right” to deactivate a member then the member should have the right to delete and remove their account entirely. It isn’t fair that a website can enjoy the fruits of a long time members work while not allowing that member access to the site. Maintained media continues to also generate (besides revenue) commentary that can not be responded to by the deactivated member.”

Well said, RainbowChannel!




Helpful Trick: Obfuscate your profile info.

Because most accounts and profiles at Gayforit cannot be removed, we suggest you login and change your account and profile information altogether.

Make sure you are logged in to your account on the site and click on the profile or options settings. Locate the fields with your personal info (email, name, address) and fill in generic, random information instead. If you can only select from several fields, change anything personally identifying. If possible, use a homepage/URL field or long text field (such as Description) and put this line in it: This may encourage webmasters and admins to create an easier removal outlet.

Helpful Trick: Removing online data

Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly removed even when you succeed in removing an account. Try editing or removing them manually before removing the account itself. If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Gayforit and ask personally. By the way, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
