GL’s clubs and advice queens are a brand-new way for you to
connect with other girls on Girlslife.com.
You’re a natural at ballet? You’re the breakup counselor for
your crew? You’re known as your school’s trendsetter? You can become an Advice
Queen and form a club where you dish pearls of wisdom on all your fave
interests and hobbies. Meet new people, make great friends and help a sister
out along the way.

How do I make an Advice Queen club?
It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
Step 1: Become a registered member of Girlslife.com. Not a
member? CLICK HERE.
Fill out the form HERE
sure to answer all the starred questions. Your Advice Queen name will
automatically be your username. Once you’ve perfected your description and
selected your tags (remember, the first tag you choose is how you will be
sorted—so make sure it’s applicable!), click ‘submit’ and wait to be approved
by our site moderators.
Step 3: Now use the Recommend button to give a shout out to
all your fellow GL babes!
Why can’t I create a name for my Advice Queen club?
We want your Advice Queen club name to link directly to your
awesome profile page—girls getting advice from you should be able to learn more
about you, right?
How many Advice Queen clubs can I make?
Each Girlslife.com user can create only one Advice Queen
page, but up to five clubs. And of course, you can become a member or a fan of
as many different clubs and Advice Queen pages as you want!
What can I do as an Advice Queen?
You’re the reigning queen of your club. You alone have the
ability to update your club description and post status updates for all your
loyal fans to follow. You can also directly respond to questions and give
advice to other users on your club page.
How do I update my club's info and post a status update?
After your club has been approved by our mods, you can
update your club by clicking on the 'Edit' button next to the ‘Recommend’
button. Clicking 'Edit' will take you to the club update form, where you can
change your description. Once you've finished making your changes, click the
'Update Club' button to save them and make them go live. If you want to save
your progress but not make your changes live just yet, click 'Approve and
Save' and continue working.
How do I choose my icon?
Choose an icon you think best represents your club’s theme
from any free image website. The more unique, the better. And remember, no
I’ve found my icon. Now what?
Save the image to your desktop or a folder that you can
easily access. Next, click on “Browse” next to “Upload New Icon”. Locate your
image where you previously saved it and then click on your image to select it.
Be sure that the image is a square 100 x 100 pixels wide, or it might get
I uploaded my icon, but I got a GL logo instead. What
If you’re seeing the GL logo, your icon was not approved. Double-check
1. Make sure it’s not a personal pic.
2. Make sure it’s appropriate to share with all your fellow
3. If you're not uploading a 100 x 100 image, make sure the
file size isn't too large (think under 50k).
What are tags and how do I use them?
Tags make it easy for us to organize all the fab Advice
Queens on Girlslife.com. Tags work like categories: You can select up to four
different tags that fit you. Make sure that the first tag you select (with the
red star) is the tag that most accurately represents you, since we'll use this
tag to primarily sort your club. (i.e., if you’ll be giving advice on fashion,
your first tag should be ‘Fashion/Shopping’.) The order of the other tags you
select (tags 2 through 4) doesn't matter. Happy tagging!
How do I get featured in GL’s Advice Queen of the Day box?
By creating a new Advice Queen club and submitting it for
moderation, you will automatically be in the running for GL’s Advice Queen of
the Day title. These are pulled randomly so everyone gets a fair chance to be
Advice Queen of the Day!
Why won’t I show up immediately?
We’ve got awesome site moderators who read through each Advice
Queen’s description and comments to check for personal info and inappropriate
language to keep our site safe and friendly. Check back in a little while and
your club will show up soon.
How do I get more girls to ask me for advice?
This person is annoying me. Can I delete fans?
To keep things fair and welcoming to all users, not even the
Advice Queen has the ability to delete fans. If you’re having trouble with one
of yours, you can report that user’s comments or notify a mod.
This comment/question is inappropriate. Can I delete
If there is an abusive or inappropriate comment left on your
club homepage, your first step of action should be to immediately notify a mod.
Club creators do have the ability to delete inappropriate comments–but please
do not abuse this privilege.
Hey, I already give advice on my
profile, now what?

our new format by transferring over all of your loyal followers. Read on for

member? CLICK HERE.

and find an Advice Queen club you’d like to
take part in. Clicking on a club’s icon or title will take you to that club’s
Step 3: Once on the club’s homepage, on the right hand side
you’ll see a button that says ‘Become a Fan. Click this button to automatically
join the club—that’s it!
Step 4: Start having fun by asking questions to your Advice

button and entering their usernames.
How can I see other people’s Advice Queen clubs?
Just click on her name or icon right by her comments (it’s
hyperlinked) and check out the ‘My Clubs’ box on her profile.

do I tell her?
If you’re already a member of that club, you can click the
‘Recommend’ button to invite that person to become a fan, as well.
Do I have to be a fan to ask a question?
Nope! Why would you become a fan of someone’s advice if
you’ve never even talked to her? You can pose questions to Advice Queens and
then choose who you want to become a fan of after weighing their
How do I access my Advice Queens?
You can access your clubs (both those you’ve created and
those you’re a member of) in one of two ways:
1. Check the ‘My Clubs’ box on your profile
2. Use the ‘My Clubs’ button in the GL Clubs navigation box
on the left-hand side of any page on Girlslife.com.
What are the tag links used for on the Advice Queen club
To make it easier for your Advice Queen to answer your
question and for your fellow users to find the advice they need, we've created
separate advice queen tabs based on the tags that the Advice Queen chose for
her club. So, if she gives advice on Fashion/Shopping, Beauty/Hair, and
Guys/Dating and you have a question about how to wear your hair for school
tomorrow, click on the Beauty/Hair tab and post your question there. Then check
back later to see what she says!
When will my comments/questions go live?
We’re workin’ around the clock to get your comments up ASAP,
but if yours doesn’t appear for a bit, don’t panic. Mods have to sleep, too!
Can I ask the mods a question?
If you have a question for a mod, it’s best to ask it on one
of our many post pages throughout the site, and not under a club comments list.
You’ll get a speedier answer that way.
How do I delete an Advice Queen?
To delete or cancel your club membership, click the ‘Leave
Club’ button on the club page. You will no longer be a member of this club,
meaning that you won’t be able to post comments on the club wall.
Can I submit suggestions to improve GL Advice Queens?
Absolutely! Do you have comments or suggestions to help make
our Advice Queens better? CLICK HERE
