Frequently Asked Questions

How to Get the Most Out of Transas City

I want to comment on an article. How do I?

You need to first register an account with the site. You can do this by clicking the “Register” link on the right-hand side of the main page, and then giving the site your information. Registration is free and fast, and our mailing list will never be given to anyone else, even non-profit or advocacy organizations. Your account name need not be your real name, or any name in particular. After you register with the site, you may need to log in, which can be done by clicking the link labeled “Log In” on the right-hand side of the main page – or you may be automatically logged in.

After logging in, you can make comments on posts. To prevent spambots from wrecking the site, your first comment will not appear immediately, waiting on validation by a site Administrator. After your first comment is validated, it will appear, and from then on your comments will immediately appear on the site.

I want to receive e-mail updates when news is posted. How can I do that?

On the right-hand side of each page is an item saying “Enter your email address to receive notifications of new posts by email.” Below this is an entry form for you to type your mail in, and a button labeled “Subscribe.” When you enter a valid e-mail address and click the button, Transas City will send a mail to that address confirming that you want to receive news updates. If you click the message in the e-mail which affirms this, you will receive one more mail confirming you are subscribed, and giving you a link to change your subscription settings. Do not delete this e-mail. From then on, every time news is posted to the site, or a new article, you will receive an e-mail alerting you.

How do I unsubscribe from news updates?

Open the original confirmation e-mail. In it is a quick link to unsubscribe you from the site news updates, or you can go to the link titled “Manage Subscriptions” and turn it off from there.

Website Organization

Why does transascity.com direct here if you’re not commercial?

Since many people are used to typing “.com” on the end of URLs, I bought that URL along with transascity.org.

I work for or have a service which benefits the transgender community and I’m not listed. Why not?

Probably because I don’t have your information, don’t know you personally, or haven’t been contacted by you. Drop me a line at transascity at gmail dot com and let’s chat.
