Why are some Events not listed on GridAffairs?

Event listings on GridAffairs are Free!

While we try to be as inclusive as possible, we also had to tighten the rules, as people using GridAffairs because they can easy find the quality Events on the site or in our Inworld HUD.

We actively exclude Events/Event Organizers which:
- knowingly promote IP Rights Violators
- are of deceptive nature
- use bots to manipulate traffic
- don't follow our submission guideline
- are of low quality content and presentation

This means: You CAN'T just buy in to get your events listed - you have to earn it!

We believe SL events should be fun, interesting, focused on quality content and topics.

Another reason can be that we just didn't knew about the event and will gladly correct that as soon as you let us know.

And last but not least - we are humans only and some event maybe just slipped through our fingers. Should you notice this, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can fix it immediately.
