you must be a member of livejournal to comment on entries. we don't care if you don't want to join. if you want to make comments, you need to create an account. no exceptions. the anonymous bullshit is done. anonymous commenting is allowed. it has to be for secrets submissions. however, the anonymous comments are screened. if you try to reply to a post as an anonymous user, your reply will only be shown to you & the mods. no one else will see it. if you have something to say, own up to it & log in.
personal attacks against members of this community are strictly prohibited. no questions will be asked, you'll just be banned. it's really that simple. you can email one of the mods & try to plead your case, but chances are, you won't be commenting again. if you are banned & do wish to beg & plead, you can email jes (queenofgrey) here
or chris (bonesbaby33) here.
the "i slept with nick" secrets were fun for a while. really, they were. but it's gotten old & we all know it has. give it a rest. we can't tell if your secrets are real, so we can't knock out the fakes. so, we ask you this, keep the bullshit secrets to a minimum. once in a while is fine. whatever. but this has really got to stop.
to become a member, you don't officially join the community. just add it to your friends list. this can be done by clicking here. the only actual members are the mods. do not leave comments on the mods' personal journals asking to be added. we'll ignore you.
the text on your secret must be legible.
we don't censor according to content, as stated, only for size and legibility. this means if you write a note saying you're going to kill yourself, it will get posted. but please, go see a shrink instead. nobody likes reading the suicide secrets. go post it at one of those other angsty secret communities. we don't want them here.
design a graphic that relates to your secret. it can include pictures, text, just text, whatever. just make sure that it's easy to read & smaller than 500 x 500. to check the size of your secret, open it in paint, click on 'image', then 'attributes' & the width & height will be displayed.
to upload your secret to the internet, go to http://www.tinypic.com, click on 'browse', find the secret on your computer. once you've selected it, click 'host picture'. then take the code in the 'link' box (the bottom line of code) & copy the link to your clipboard (control + c).
go to the submissions post, hit the 'anonymous' user button, & paste (control + v) your link into the comment box.
hit submit! if you get the following message, you did it right: your anonymous comment has been added. according to this community's settings, it was marked as screened, and will be visible only to the community maintainers until they choose to unscreen it.
