Is your mission to reveal all the secrets in the world? xD

Guess I'll be posting on my own account. It just seems really stupid not to be able to comment on your own secrets. I want to get it off my chest and communicate with people, not hide away.

You found the perfect solution, the point of DAS it to be anonymous, so if you don't want to be of course you post it on your own dA. I don't see the problem here?

I'm with you there....

If people want to be anonymous that's fine, but I don't think it should be a requirement.

I suppose one could simply post it on their own DA, then submit the secret into groups.

Sure, it's called a secret, but isn't the point of this to get it out there as yourself?

Do you guys mind maybe making a simplified checklist for what is REQUIRED in the secret? This journal entry is kind of long, and it's easy for someone to miss a rule or two.

Something along the lines of:

DAS Submission Checklist
□ Size is no bigger than 900 x 900 pixels
□ Saved in JPEG format
□ Written in clear English
□ etc.

Where each task is something short and quick, and makes sense to those who  have read this journal post.

Or if DAS Helpers are too busy with things, I wouldn't mine making it. :) I think this checklist would help make sure ST's submit secrets right the first time.

That is such a good idea. ^^

I know right? lol It makes it a lot easier to read than this wordy journal everytime I want to submit a secret. :(
Takkaia's avatar
That's a really good idea!

Must the secret teller always remain anonymous or it can reveal its identity/alias?
Takkaia's avatar
That's the point of DAS? If you sand to tell your "secret" so that everyone knows who you are, just post it on your own account.
TheRomanianGentleman's avatar
but what about an alias? something non-related to any account? 
Takkaia's avatar
Read the FAQ. There's a special account you can use to comment on your own secrets, but that's about it.

All this is going to accomplish is the mass-production of rushed, shoddily made deviations with a lack of personal creativity. No stank you.

isn't that what it's been from the beginning? most of it, anyways.

Why is it that there is a max of 65 words on the poems?

For the people who actually write poetry/stories, to actually get out a secret in word form without the aide of pictures, that is a very limited word count.

Or was there a mistype and it's actually a minimum of 65?

Not a misstype at all :) Its a secret, not a novel. The idea is to be short and to the point. Not long winded.

55 words is just holding back any creativity a person could put into something, it should be at least 100 that's still very short

Not for a secret it isnt...  Words have great volume to them. You dont need to use many at all to get the point across, strong and loud.

A poem secret can be a little longer..
Also as explained, these are not all 100% yet, still getting the fell for things see how they go :)
