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, as 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 self-service platform at BuySellAds. 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 or secretly-sponsored articles, 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 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 Corrections: 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 and Requests: Simply want to reach out and say hello, thanks or otherwise stoke our egos … or perhaps want to give us your thoughts on the site layout, design or content? We always appreciate it … there are many trolls lurking on these here interwebs so seeing a friendly face with constructive criticism is always a welcome surprise. These are our favorite emails and a good way to get in touch casually. 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 or Ideas: We are generally do not read (nor respond to) mass press-release-style submissions. 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. Like a cover letter for a job interview, personalizing your message shows us you are not simply spamming all of the sites you can find but have considered how your project would fit within our publication. Many people simply mass-mail their ideas to everyone – we believe that if you would like exposure or have a good idea that you should be sufficiently invested in it to customize your own introduction to it for each potentially relevant outlet. We also do not 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.
NOTE: You dislike junk mail – so do we. If your submission appears in the form of a bland press release with insufficient or irrelevant information it will be immediately discarded and your site, service and/or product will be permanently blacklisted from our entire network of sites. Webist Publishing does not accept generic mass-mailed requests of any kind regardless of the subject matter. Period. No Exceptions. If any of the above seems heavy-handed, please remember that we sort through many incoming mails daily. Thank you for understanding, and for reading!
