Q: What is the purpose of the InfoLists directory?

A: InfoLists.com was created to help people share information in an easy, organized, and useful way. The goal of the site is to maintain as much organized and unique information as possible on all topics of interest.

Q: What is Twigs and why is it the chosen format for the lists on this directory?

A: Twigs list management software is a relatively new type of software package that is built around the idea of organized, easy to access information. This software package is revolutionary in its simplicity and ease of use, and is thus a perfect match for the information sharing structure of InfoLists.com.

Q: Who contributes to the directory? Where does all of the information come from?

A: Most of the information available in the directory comes directly from users like you. Although some lists are added directly by editors or administrators, most are contributed by users with an interest in a certain subject.

Anyone is free to submit their information to be included in the directory and is strongly encouraged to do so as long as it meets our terms for inclusion.

Q: How do I submit a list to the directory?

A: InfoLists.com submissions must be in the proper list format created by Twigs List Management Software. Click here to download a free version of this software.

We also ask that users be a member of the directory so that we may track list submissions and have contact information if we have questions regarding a list submission or list content. Membership is free and takes only a few minutes. Click here to signup if you aren't already a member.

Once you have created a properly formatted list you may submit it to the category to which you believe it is the best fit by clicking the “Submit your list to this category” link on that particular category page.

Q: Do I have to be an expert to submit a list on a certain subject?

A: Not in the least. All we ask is that the information be accurate and well written. And you must also ensure your lists meet our submission guidelines.

Q: Who decides what information is approved for inclusion to the directory?

A: InfoLists is managed by a group of volunteer editors specific to each category, and a few site administrators that oversee the editors and the overall organization of the site. In most cases the editors have sole discretion in determining which lists are appropriate and positive contributions to the categories they are responsible for.

Q: Can I use the information and lists in the directory for my own use, on my own site or in my own printed material?

A: The lists in the directory are intended to be freely available for everyone to use personally and improve on. However, we do not currently allow anyone to use the lists contained here commercially, redistribute the directory lists or print them in commercial publications to protect the integrity of the directory and our contributing members. For more information on our terms of use or how to display our information lists on your website, click here.

Q: I disagree with the information included in one of the directory lists? What can I do about this?

A: Depending on the nature of the subject matter, there is often very little that can be done in this situation. We don't generally remove lists from the directory unless the list violates our terms of service, was approved inadvertantly, or can be proven to be factually inaccurate. If you believe that one of these conditions applies to the list in question, please report the list here.
