Gamer Secrets was based off the PostSecret project and inspired by various other LJ secret communities that are floating around. I started this because I noticed there wasn't really a place dedicated for general video game secrets, especially MMO games.
The goal is for more people to share anonymously not only gaming secrets, but rants/raves in a place where it's not only tolerated, but encouraged. :)
The community is open for membership so members can create their own posts. Please be aware that your LJ username will be visible. If you'd like to post anonymously you can sign up with a fake LJ account or contact me about using the public account (NOTE: it's not ready for use at this time).
There will be weekly posts where anyone can reply anonymously with their secrets.
If you have a question that isn't covered here you're welcome to private message the admin or leave a comment here. Any comments left on journals will be ignored.
What are the RULES?
To keep some order around here, I'm afraid there will be a couple rules. Most are plain old common sense. :)
Secrets must be somehow related to video games or gaming. It can be the gaming culture/industry, gaming communities, or a non-game secret that uses a game to get the point across.
There is a certain amount of respect that is expected here. Please treat people as you would like to be treated.
Be aware that anonymous comments are permitted. Please keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but flaming is not allowed. The admin reserves the right to screen/delete comments/posts they see fit.
Secrets including people's real names or in-game names are not allowed. Exceptions to this are celebrities or character names (ex. Chris Redfield).
If posting a long detailed post, please use a lj-cut. When posting in the weekly post, try to keep your secrets short and to the point. If you would like to elaborate, creating a post is encouraged.
You may use images in your post if you'd like. Images over 600x600 pixels are required to be placed behind a lj-cut. Tinypic is recommended for easy anonymous uploading.
Posts must adhere to the community default settings for allowing comments (enable anonymous comments).
There are no restrictions as for the content of any secret. Just be truthful. :)
Here are some tips/suggestions taken from ljsecret: - Be brief - the fewer the words the better. - Be legible - if your secret is unreadable it can't be posted. - Be creative! Make your secret unique. - And most importantly, be genuine.
