ABOUT.
LiveJournalSecret is based on and a spin-off of the project PostSecret, which has influenced much of LiveJournal. If you would like to be a part of ljsecret please friend the community.

Our concept is quite simple: share a secret through the means of art under complete anonymity. Unlike the original project, however, we accept every secret submitted (given that it complies with the rules) and post them Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Anyone can participate! All you need is an art medium/program installed on your computer (Adobe Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, MSPaint, etc.) and/or a digital camera, scanner, etc. Last but not least, a secret to share! Upload your secret to a reliable image host, and submit the URL to your secret in the Submissions Post.

Secrets will then be posted Monday, Wednesday, Friday and text secrets every Saturday. When your secret will be posted is dependent upon when it was submitted. Please be patient and respectful, as we can encounter technical and other difficulties with the links breaking and lack of submissions for posts.


If you need to contact us about anything concerning ljsecret you can e-mail us at ljsecretcontact@gmail.com. Please make sure you have read our FAQ section before contacting us. Do not go to a moderator's personal journal and ask your questions. If you would prefer to leave a comment do so at the FAQ section.

THE RULES.
There are few rules to LJSecret but are continuously enforced:

WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY FORM OF PORNOGRAPHY USED IN SUBMISSIONS AS OF 12/02/07. We do not consider tasteful and artistic images as pornographic. However, any images of people engaging in sexual acts is considered pornographic and will not be accepted at all.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY PHOTOBUCKET SECRETS SUBMITTED AS OF 02/23/08. If you submit a Photobucket secret, it will be discarded and you will have to upload it to a different image hosting site and resubmit it.

All secrets must stay either at or under 800x600 pixels (width and height, respectively) in consideration for our watchers who use dial-up connection to the internet.

Shout-outs (i.e. "hollywood, you are awesome, girlfriend!") are not allowed under any circumstances.

E-mailed secrets will not be posted. The only method allowed is commenting on a Submissions Post, which opens once every two weeks at a different time. You can locate the time the submission post will be open by looking at the bottom of every secret post. Not sure about comparing time zones? Read this.

"Trend secrets" (such as the "prove you're human" thing) are not allowed as of 04/23/07.

Secrets about the submission post or about making secrets in Microsoft Paint are not allowed.

Secrets with an identifiable signature are not allowed.

All secrets must be uploaded to an image hosting website.

WHEN COMMENTING: Everyone is entitled to their opinion and we respect that; we allow anonymous comments and IP addresses are not logged but, in the same light, you need to be respectful of not only your mods, but of the secrets themselves. Keep in mind, we will screen/delete comments as we see fit. So please, just be nice. Please keep these rules in mind when commenting. Also keep in mind that there are ways to be honest without coming off like an inconsiderate asshole. Confused as to how? Try googling it. Or dictionary.com the word 'tact'.

Thank you for following these simple rules--we appreciate it.


There is virtually no restriction as far as the content of your secret, only that is must be truthful and unknown to anyone but yourself, and that is complies with our rules. Regrets, hopes and dreams, a funny experience, an unseen kindness, sexual fantasies, belief, criminal activity, fears/phobias, weird habits, betrayal, confession, childhood humiliation... anything.


Tips/Suggestions:
Be brief - the fewer 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.
