Questions about the online community

Chat, profiles, membership, Top-Member,...

How to register

Join the community (free)...

ZURIGAY is an open community for gays and friends. As a registered member you can chat with others and take active part of the online community.

„Who can join gaYmeBoys?”

gaYmeBoys is open for every gay and gayfriendly person. Everybody who agrees to our membership terms may join. gaYmeBoys is not suitable for children under the age of 12. Minors (under 16) may join the chat but are excluded from sexual content. Read more about this in the chapter about protection of minors.

Top-Membership for adults

Information, registration, renewing,...

To protect minors from viewing sexual content, pornographic images are only visible for adult members who proved their age with a credit card payment or a copy of an id card or passport.
Except of that you will get many more advantages after Top-Member Upgrade...

Upgrade to Top-Member and renewing your membership


How to use the new chat features...

Log in and then look at the new tutorial.

My profile

Login, picture upload, settings, ...

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!

Upload Pictures

„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:

  • Good light makes good pictures: The evening sun is much better than the bathroom light.
  • Handys make bad pictures: Any lens with only 5mm can just get unsharp images with little light.
  • A self-timer produces always a freezed smile: Try to do the pics after jerking off.
  • Don't let the background steal you the show. Less is more, but only a white wall is boring!
  • Don't try to copy someone else. Be yourself!

E-mail announcements

„When do I get e-mails from gaYmeBoys?”

  • If you ask us to send you a forgotten password
  • If you subscribed to the newsletter about Zurich's gay scene*
  • When unread messages are deleted from the database*
  • If you choose the option that all messages are forwarded to your e-mail when you are offline*

  • In case of important system updates

*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!”

Username: Password:

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.”
