10/4/18
I was an author at gay authors.org for more than five years but for personal reasons I sent a politely worded email on 4/10/18 asking how I can remove my profile and stories.

I attempted to log in some time later to discover I'd been banned from accessing the site. I have received no emails in response to my request and I am assuming that my details have now been removed but I don't know this for certain.

I always assumed that complaints about the attitude of the site management were a nonsense, made by disgruntled users. Given my own experience, this is sadly not the case.

There are some very nice people on the site and I shall miss them but I recommend you stay away from the site entirely if this is the way they treat their members.

To clear up this matter, please refer to this support request posted just last night requesting the removal and our quick response.

Edward,

When an author, especially one with a lot of work on GA removes their stories, it causes a site disruption and a lot of support requests reporting missing stories. Therefore, the system was updated to require that the story details remain in the system even upon unpublishing. https://www.gayauthors.org/guidelines/

per section 6: ... " Note: Gay Authors reserves the right to maintain the story details in the system with a notification that the story has been removed including the author's reason. This is to reduce site disruption because of a removed story. "



All of your personal data has been scrubbed from your profile and your account disabled.

Sorry to see you go,

Dear Sir or Madam,



********** DELETION OF AUTHOR'S ACCOUNT, PROFILE AND STORIES **********

I wish to cancel my free membership of gayauthors.org and delete my profile and all my stories. I believe that I have taken action today to delete my stories off the site but I cannot find any information or instructions on how to delete my account, my profile and my stories in their entirety. I wish to do this for personal reasons. Please advise the process. I have enjoyed being on GayAuthors but regrettably I have to cease activity on your excellent site.

Kind regards,

Edward Wilson
