Members have the option of posting a private salute, meaning that they are permitted to post up photos of themselves with their face blurred out, and will receive an "eye" icon next to their username.

If you have no "eye", then you cannot post photos of yourself at all - even if your face is cropped or blurred!


Unlike the regular salute, the private salute actually consists of TWO elements:

1) The private face salute, which can be submitted via email to moderators@dance.net. This salute must comply with all the regular salute regulations eg lighting, lined paper etc. This will only be seen by the moderators and will remain entirely confidential.

2) The public body salute, which is uploaded here in this forum. You are permitted to blur your face out for this salute, and you can be sitting or standing, but we need to see all of you because this is the part of you other members will see in your other photos.


You MUST submit both a private face salute and a public body salute to receive an "eye" icon"


If you are uploading a body salute with a blurred face here and a private face salute to the moderators at the same time, PLEASE a) link to your body salute in your email/pm to moderator, and b) make it clear in your body salute thread that you have already sent/are about to send a private salute to the moderators. That way we know what's going on! :)

For some reason I was thinking that you were allowed to post pictures of your face cropped. :? Well, it's good that I now know.

Thanks for giving us the option to private salute! It's an awesome idea!

People salute so that they can post photographs of themselves on DDN. It's completely optional. If you want to post pictures of yourself, then you must salute.

This post explains how to do a normal (public) salute: www.dance.net . . .

If you don't want to do a public salute, though, you have the option of a private one (as explained at the beginning of this thread). :)

I dont understand why we have to do 2 different salutes nor do I understand why it MUST be on lined paper. If we permit ourselves to put photos of ourselves up it should not matter

The lined paper and hand-visible rule is so that we KNOW it's you. Before, we've had trouble with members posting photos that SAY they're of themselves, but they're really not. To avoid that, we require everyone who wants to post photos of themselves up to salute, thus giving us an image that we can compare to all following images. It keeps people honest, and from trying to lie about who they are / their abilities / their friends...that kind of thing.

It's a good rule to keep for the sake of everyone's safety and sanity.

As for 2 photos of yourself: that's an option. This is the PRIVATE salute page--some people want to put up photos to get feedback but don't want to (or are not allowed) disclose their face/identity. It's a common safety measure people use, and to accommodate that, DDN has created THESE rules for those people. The DDN moderators still need a photo that includes an unobstructed face, but it's confidential so no one else will see it. The image that is open to all DDN members will have the face blurred out, as the member would like.

If a person doesn't care about having their face blurred out, they can do a public salute (link in one of the replies above) where they upload only one photo of themselves (with the hand showing, lined paper, username and DDN on it) to the Salue forum for approval.

You don't HAVE to do the two salutes required for a private salute. If you're okay with posting pictures of your face online, you can just salute here.

www.dance.net . . .

The private salute is for dancers who may not want to post their face online but would like to post body pictures with their face obscured.

Writing on lined paper is harder to fake than regular un-lined paper, so we require lined paper for all salutes for this reason.

Plain paper is easier to edit: We've had people try to edit their username on 'blank paper' into a photo of someone else. Lined paper is easier to tell if it's edited on or into the picture, therefore preventing false identities to flourish. It's also more difficult to edit a piece of paper INTO someone's showing hand and have it look right with the rest of the picture, which is why that is required.

It's all to make sure people are being honest, because there have been dishonest persons in the past.
