FAQ

Why is your site anonymously-run?
We want people to concentrate on what we’re saying, not who’s saying it. We feel it helps keep the conversation remain on-point, and we don’t want to distract from the site’s purpose by throwing in additional variables. It’s also important that the spotlight be on the work and the people we’re featuring, not the site’s authors.

San Francisco rocks. Why do we need a site like this?
The city does rock. That’s why we’ve made it our home for a long, long time. But to keep our reputation as the most creative city in the world, we need inspiration, support, and the drive to do something even cooler. We hope The San Francisco Egotist is a place where the city’s creative people can come for all three.

Who contributes to the site?
The authors of The San Francisco Egotist are varied in their talents and interests, making the site robust and perpetually fresh. We invite everyone in the community to write an editorial at any time. We’re happy to give credit to anyone who takes the time to craft a piece or they can choose to remain anonymous.

Is the site associated with an agency?
Despite what you may have heard or think you know, The San Francisco Egotist is autonomous and not connected in any way to any agency in the Bay Area.

Will all work submitted be featured?

No. The San Francisco Egotist posts information and editorial relevant to the demanding creative connoisseur working in the Bay Area and beyond. We’re critical with our recommendations, so all work and links submitted to The San Francisco Egotist will be examined with a critical eye. Only the top work will be featured.

Why has my comment or forum thread been deleted?
It was likely deleted because we thought it was harmful. And that’s against the rules here. If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it. It’s that simple.

Can I start a version of this site in my own city?
