Contact WebUrbanist | Guidelines & Feedback Form
Thanks for your interest in reaching out to WebUrbanist! Due to extremely high volume of incoming messages, it can be very difficult for us to respond quickly (if at all) to new emails. The more succinct-but-still-informative your message is, the more likely you are to receive a prompt response. Below are some general tips for each main type of contact we receive – feel free to scroll down to and skim through the one most relevant to your situation. You will need to select one of these five options in the contact form at the bottom of the page.
1) Advertising and Networking: To purchase ad space quickly and easily, you can use our easy self-service platform. We really appreciate other publishers, designers, artists and creatives of all kinds reaching out to us, but please use common sense about asking for favors or link exchanges. Be as explicit as possible if you are seeking some sort of sponsored relationship. Including the target product/service/website is essential – preferred ad types and range of budget would be helpful as well. We do not sell text links, sponsored posts or ‘guest’ article spots, so do not bother asking.
2) Bug Report or Site Issue: We rely on our readers to help us find glitches, bugs and other errors with the website, but it is even more helpful if you can include a link to a screen capture and/or additional information about what page you saw the issue on, what country you are in and what web browser and operating system you use. If you are looking for more information about a given subject, project or design covered in an article, refer to the bolded links in that article.
3) Complaints or Correction: If you have a complaint or correction, be sure to include an email address at which you can be contacted, a link to the article, page and/or image about which you are writing and as much detail as possible to help us respond promptly and appropriately to your concerns. Please also keep in mind that the person reading your email may or may not be the author of the content in question, so the more you can narrow things down, the better.
4) Friendly Feedback or Request: Simply want to reach out and say hello, thanks or give us your thoughts on the site layout, design or articles? We always appreciate it … a friendly face and constructive criticism are always welcome. If you want to know more about something you read on the site, please include a link to the article, but first check and see if source links within that article can answer the question (for instance: if you are looking to buy a product we have written about).
5) Submissions and Ideas: Feel free to send us brief but descriptive summaries with links to supporting information. We are generally do not read (nor respond to) mass press-release-style submissions that are not a targeted fit for our publication. If you would like someone to take a look at your design, product or web page, please address the email to the editors with some site-specific context concerning its relevance to our readers. Be sure to include links to live webpages. videos and/or images as appropriate so we can read and see more about your work. Keep in mind we are very selective and have limited space on our editorial calender, so most projects will not be covered unless they are novel or exceptional in some way. We also do not ever accept guest articles – it takes us too much time and effort to instruct guest authors or adapt their articles to our style and format requirements.
