Site News

We're glad to announce that we've restored the wrok exchange section. Wondering how this works? It's simple! Some cross promotion things need a human intelligence on them and can't be done with a program. If you want a comment under your blog or video that makes sense, if you want people to share your link on different social networks, and need related work done, simply Add it free to the Work Exchange Section. If you need points or simple want to have fun with it, you can just visit the Work Exchange and Do Work. It's that simple. Time to get busy. This is yet another way to thank you for using MinaGrey and being a nice MinaGrey Member. If you haven't joined us yet, remember that MinaGrey, the community for arts, science, literature, music, can be joined free

art licensing MinaGrey is glad to present Members with the unique opportunity of art, music, prose, and poetry licensing without commissions. You can now decide if you'd like to license what you contribute to the site, set a price for it, and see what others think. We currently simplify licensing with a "buyout": this means that you decide a flat rate for the single use of your piece, and that becomes the price of our basic licensing. Users will then be presented with the opportunity of purchasing the basic license or the full one. The full license is just the permission to use your piece for multiple derivative works, but it doesn't last forever (we currently set it to one year). Of course, you don't give up your copyright, which remains with you, and you don't commit to exclusive licenses (others can user the same work if you like). The great news now: all this without commissions. MinaGrey is committed to providing the best services to its community without a business-oriented or "money-making" philosophy. Tools and resources are made available to everyone, free.
Members can login and set their art, music, or literature licensing options, while prospective members can join free, with Facebook, Google, or with the standard signup form

Your contribution is only yours here, and belongs to you. Have a Facebook account? You can display the art you upload or the science articles you write on your profile, with MinaGrey on Facebook.
Not sure what your ticker will look like? Preview it here.
Bragging is a right.

You can now use our Google, Facebook, OpenID, and Twitter integration to contribute to the site. Want to post your own science articlss, but don't feel like remembering a new password? Login with Yahoo! Or with Facebook and Google! There's plenty of choice

Minagrey is a "social" website for Fine Arts, Music, Academic/Cultural news, and Literature. It is conceived to work as a cafe' des artistes, or a place where artists and intellectuals meet and share opinions, resources, ideas, or simply life.
The site is divided into areas that you can discover and use. Like to write science news? Are you an academic? Login with Facebook or Google and post your article. Are you in need for some free marketing? The protected Members's area has so many functions for cross promotion and marketing devoted to the community Members, that you won't use them all in one day: you can tweet, retweet fellow members, share posts on Facebook, like links, watch videos and like them, do some web surfing which is certainly going to help you and your fellow members with Alexa ranks. If inspired you can upload music, post prose or poetry, upload art, and even license them without commissions on our side. Meet like-minded people, join the one and only MinaGrey Community! The good news? It's all free. This doesn't imply a lower quality, or a second hidden sneaky goal: we simply believe that resources should be made available to everyone with interests matching Science, Arts, Music, and Literature.
You actually make MinaGrey by contributing to its content yourself, so it's yours. If it's yours, we don't understand why should you pay to use it. The bad news? We don't have any. We have the strictest anti-spam policy you'll ever see, and don't track you, don't advertise on site, don't send you emails of any sort.

It has no ads, no cookies, it doesn't post for you if you're offline, there are no surprise tweets or follows just because you authorized it. You can check your top tweet, thank those who retweeted it, see who's your twitter friend, thank them for the patience, retweet them, and then we've also added the possibility to monitor unfollowers. Oh, and it's free! If you want something more, just let me know. We'll make you happy! http://iretweeted.co"
