Login, Cookies, Sicherheit
„How can I prevent missuse of my profile?”
Set a password that nobody can guess. Never let anybody read your personal emails. And do not use the autologin on a public computer.
„Are cookies dangerous?”
A cookie is used to save personal settings on your own computer. That's how the autologin works. But you should only use the autologin if no strangers are using your computer. Never use it in an internet cafe!
„Why can't I upload a picture?”
The system can only read pictures in JPG format. Other formats (GIF, PNG, TIFF, BMP, PDF,...) must be converted first into JPG using an image processing software (z.B. Adobe Photoshop, Corel Photopaint, MS Paint,...). To do this you must open the image file in such a program and save it using the JPG-Setting under a new name. It's not enough to rename the file. A donkey called horse is still a donkey.
The maximum file size is limited. If your pictures are extremly heavy you might have to resize them before upload with a graphics program.
„Why can't I see my uploaded picture immediately?”
To protect minors from watching porn we must check all uploaded pictures manually. Please be patient. You will get a message as soon as your pictures are rated.
„Why has my picture or video been rejected?”
gaYmeBoys is under Swiss law. Minors under 16 are not allowed to watch images or videos with sexual content. That's why all uploads are categorised. Only adult Top-Members will get access to pornographic images. Pictures that are against the law (violence or hard porn) must be deleted. Read more about picture rating...
„Why do my pics look so shitty?”
Not everybody is born as a star photographer but you can get good results if you keep this in mind:
„When do I get e-mails from gaYmeBoys?”
*All these announcements can be switched on and off in your Profile.
Delete my profile
„I hate the SPAM!”
If you just want to unsubscribe from our newsletter, you can do that at all time in your profile editor.
„I did not find what I was looking for.”
gaYmeBoys is not a dating agency. Sometimes you may find love, sometimes not. Maybe you read the hints about making friends above.
„I'm fed up with gay life, want to marry a girl and delete my membership at ZURIGAY!”
Notice: Usernames of deleted profiles stay reserved for a while to avoid mistaken identities. Forum postings and comments stay online to keep the understanding of a discussion. Profile pictures and videos are deleted, uploads in public and club galleries will stay. If you want to delete these pictures, please do it before deleting your profile. Any deleted content may stay longer visible on search engines.

Problems with other members , molestations
„The guy really nerves me!”
As a basic principle we do not interfere in personal conflicts and do not spy after members as long as there is no strong suspicion of an abuse of our membership terms. Problems concerning members are very rare. If someone shoud stalk you just open his profile and ban him using the red hand button in the friendship settings. A banned user cannot send you messages anymore.
„I am seriously harrassed.”
If you got into serious problems please contact an administrator (a member with a red star) or use our feedback form to contact the editorial staff
