A post was merged into an existing topic: You Can Talk About Hopscotch Here; Topic 29 [OFFICIAL]

Am I allowed to use a photo as my profile picture if it cannot be used to identify anyone at all and is of the inside of a flower with only the flower in it or on the forum is it no pictures full stop.

yeah unfortunately we dont allow any pictures that you’ve taken yourself for safety purposes
theres a lot of reasons for this:

  • if you reverse image search something, and its been posted elsewhere, its a very quick way to find personal information from another site/sociaI media
  • you can see surroundings in pictures, so if theres something specific or niche in the background, you can also use that to find location
    • even just a street sign can be in the background and show you a street name, which is extraordinary unsafe

i understand that it’s just the inside of a flower (and i believe we’ve actually had a discussion about this atleast one before but correct nd if i’m wrong) but its much safer to just have this blanket rule.
even if everyone takes proper precautions, theres just way too much of a risk and we just cant put your safety on the line.

ive explained our prioritization this way before, and it might help:

the goal is to make the community the best place it can be so the community’s best interests are always the second priority (after safety but thats a given and unchangeable number 1)

it might be extraordinarily frustrating but our roles as leaders and moderation entails moderatingthe forum. this means keeping it safe, friendly and ensuring that nothing bad happens here.
the community, our fun comps and initiatives and allllll of the projects we’ve done here to make this a better place for yall will always absolutely come second to that.

nothing we do to better the community is happening if there’s a risk of getting hurt – no activity holds a candle to your well being; you will always come first.

so while it’s unfortunate, thats the way it is rn
our guidelines on personal information are here:

um @FearlessPhoenix abt that edit history what’s a “watched word?”

5 Likes

anything that sends the post to us for moderation, sometimes as an autoflag or filtering

oh ok- but i can’t put any edit history to a post that is in a slow mode topic. it says to encourage conversation blabla, i should wait before editing a post

5 Likes

no worries

gotcha, good to know. i think you should be able to within the spend timeframe (so 5 min sm gives you 5 mins editing time, 10 mins gives you 10, etcetc) but i could be wrong
