Frequently Asked Questions

The following is a specific FAQ for our Forums. A general Teen Ink FAQ can be found here.

Q: Why won’t my post show up?

A: The most likely reason is that something in your post got caught in the “bad word” filter. These posts may be deleted or reviewed by a moderator. Therefore, be sure to not use any bad words to be sure your post does not get filtered out.

Q: Why are there restrictions on what I can say in my post?

A: Teen Ink is only for teens age 13-19. Our rules are to maintain the integrity and quality of the website and to only have content that is appropriate for teenagers.

Q: Is the work I post on the forums also be eligible for magazine consideration?

A: Forum posts will not be considered for publication in the magazine. Instead, you can submit your work for publication consideration here. However, the forums can be a great tool for fine-tuning your work before you submit it to Teen Ink. We highly recommend that you use the forums to get feedback and opinions before submitting to Teen Ink.

Q: Who do I ask questions about the Forums or about Teen Ink in general?

A: Direct any questions to the moderators via e-mail: editor@TeenInk.com

Q: Is it okay to talk about sensitive subjects on the forums?

A: Yes, within reason. Our goal is to have the forums be a place where everyone is comfortable and able to share on a variety of fronts. All comments will be reviewed by a moderator and removed or edited if need be. For more specific details, please refer to the user guide (on the other tab of this page).

Q: How can I report a post that is inappropriate or abusive?

A: On the upper right-hand corner of each post there is a warning symbol and a link that says “Report Abuse”. By clicking this, you help us moderate the forums - and we rely on you to help keep this a safe website for teenagers.

Q: Is it okay to change the topic in a forum?

A: We ask that you try to stick with the topic designated in each forum. It makes it a more organized and enjoyable experience for everyone. If you have an account, you are free to start a new thread on whatever new subject you would like.
