the quality of the Ganoksin's website Guide. We pride ourselves on
being highly selective. We don't accept all sites, so please don't take
it personally should your site not be accepted. Our goal is to make the

To keep the Ganoksin's websites Guide
running smoothly and to assist us in exercising our editorial
discretion, we have set up policies for submitting sites for our
consideration. We may reject, delete, or edit submissions that violate
these policies or that we otherwise believe, in our sole discretion,
should not be included in the directory. We may also reject, delete, or
block other sites that we believe to be associated with a user who has
violated these policies.
You should take a few moments to understand these policies and the steps to submit a site before you begin. Failure to understand and follow these instructions generally will result in the rejection of a submission.

Determine whether a site is appropriate for submission to the Ganoksin's website Guide:
- Do not submit mirror sites. Mirror sites are sites that contain identical content, but have altogether different URLs.
Do not submit URLs that contain only the same or similar content as
other sites you may have listed in the directory. Sites with
overlapping and repetitive content are not helpful to users of this
guide. Multiple submissions of the same or related sites may result in
the exclusion and/or deletion of those and all affiliated sites.
- Do not disguise your submission and submit the same URL more than once.
Example: http://www.yourdomain.com and http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html.
- Do not submit any site with an address that redirects to another address.
the Ganoksin's websites Guide has a policy against the inclusion of
sites with illegal content. Examples of illegal material include
material that infringes any intellectual property right; and material
that specifically advocates, solicits or abets illegal activity (such
as fraud or violence).

sites "under construction." Wait until a site is complete before
submitting it. Sites that are incomplete, contain "Under Construction"
