Gates McFadden Files
F.A.Q.

Please take the time to read through these questions, before contacting me, thank you.

Are you Gates/do you know Gates/have you met Gates?
I am not Gates McFadden nor a representative. While I do have met her in video-chat twice, and she is aware of the existence of this fansite, I cannot honestly say “I know her” as to a personal friendship level. As such, any e-mail intended for Gates will be deleted, I’m afraid. See the question further down for an explanation.

Is this the official Gates McFadden website?
No, it is not. As stated in the disclaimer, this is just a fansite. However, Gates does have an official website that is currently building, which is currently located at The Official Gates McFadden Website. Additionally, she can also be found on her official twitter account @gates_mcfadden.

Does Gates ever come here?
It would be nice, and it might happen from time to time. However, there is no sure way to determine it.

If I email you/send you a letter, will you send it to Gates?
No, I am not Gates, nor am I the Post Office. Any such emails will be deleted, I’m afraid. As far as I’m aware, there isn’t a working address currently available to contact Gates with, but you may try contacting Gates Plays for more info related to this subject.

Do you own the images in the gallery? Can I use them?
I do not own any of the images featured in the gallery — they are the copyrighted to their respective owners, and no copyright infringement is intended, as stated in the disclaimer.

As for using the images featured at Gates McFadden Files, you are welcome to use them for fanart purposes and a link back isn’t necessary, though I certainly won’t complain if you choose to do so. I also can’t stop you from redistributing the images featured here, as technically, I do not own the images.

However, I would appreciate it if you didn’t redistribute the Gates McFadden Files Exclusive media such as original magazine scans, screencaptures, and the like, as these took up a lot of free time to make, as well as costing money to buy (scans, especially) for the site in the first place. So, please respect the work of myself and the Gates McFadden Files donators. Thank you.

Why aren’t there any candid/private images of Gates in the gallery?
Gates McFadden Files is proud to be stalkerazzi-free — I have chosen not to feature candid images of Gates on this site because I wish to respect her privacy & her family.

Why don’t you have pictures of all of Gates’s events, etc., in the gallery?
It may be that the only images available are in low quality and/or watermarked/tagged — I pride myself on adding, where I can, only medium or high quality images of Gates to the gallery.

I’ve got those images/more images of [insert event]! Do you want them?
Of course! If they are within the boundaries of medium or high quality images, I’d love to be able to add them to the gallery! You can contact me and we can discuss how to work this out. Thank you! 🙂

Why don’t you answer my emails/reply sooner?
While I do pride in dedicating my time to my fansite a lot, this is not the only one I have and even if the day has 24 hours, most of times I’m contacted by people not in my same time zone (Europe), which means that when you write to me, for me, it’s probably the middle of the night. Any e-mail will be replied as soon as possible, if a reply is indeed necessary.

Still have a question that wasn’t answered? Then feel free to contact me.
