Can you please not post an event or take an event down?

If your event has good word of mouth our editors will post it on our event calendar of over 100 other upcoming events. Our duty is to our readers to make sure they know about the most talked about events going on in Shenzhen. It is our general policy to post the best Shenzhen events and never delete events from Even "underground" or "private" events will be posted on our event calendar if our editors determine them popular enough to be posted as readers have requested this.

Why is there a logo on my event flyer?

Due to the number of sites that have used our content without our permission, most of the images that we upload to our site are automatically stamped with the logo. This is common and standard practice on many sites in China such as Dianping. We cannot change this setting for an individual image.

Why was my event deleted from the site?

If your event does not have accurate address and contact information, or if your event is not specific to Shenzhen it maybe removed from the site. Events should be time limited and considered to be useful to users to stay on the site.

I have an event spanning over a few days that only shows on the first date on the event calendar.

If you are uploading an event that goes on for longer than one day, the event will only show on our event calendar for the first date of the event. For example if you upload an event that goes from Monday 1st to Friday 5th, the event will only show on the event calendar until midnight Monday 1st and not the other 4 days.
