FAQ

Why is your site anonymously-run?
We want people to concentrate on what we’re saying, not who’s saying it. We feel it helps keep the conversation remain on-point, and we don’t want to distract from the site’s purpose by throwing in additional variables. It’s also important that the spotlight be on the work and the people we’re featuring, not the site’s authors.

Who contributes to the site?
The authors of The Chicago Egotist are varied in their talents and interests, making the site robust and perpetually fresh. We invite everyone in the creative community to write editorial at any time. We’re happy to give credit to anyone who takes the time to craft a piece or they can choose to remain anonymous.

Why has my comment or forum thread been deleted?
