→ Why wasn't my secret posted?
Most unposted secrets go over the requirement for broadwaysecrets All secrets must be either or under 600 x 600 pixels for our dial-up friends.

Only tinypic.com! That means no imageshack and no photobucket. If tinypic.com is down, try again later.

Please always label your submissions. Yes, typing out "Idina Menzel" might seem obvious, but it makes the posting process easier for the mods.

This is mainly for the facebook secrets. From the userinfo: Screen caps of actors' & actresses' facebooks / myspace / friendster / etc. are no longer allowed. This ranges from their facebook status to their personal pictures. If a picture used in a secret seems to be a personal picture, it will not be posted unless the submitter links to where we can find this picture.

Secrets about non-theatre people are not allowed. broadwaysecrets is not the place for your comments and attacks on LiveJournal users, broadwayworld.com users, etc.

This does not include reply secrets as long as they are responses to the original secret maker's opinion and not personal attacks about the secret maker.

Screen caps of videos (that are clearly not from youtube) as secret backgrounds are not allowed. Also, please no sharing of links in the comments.

Two people together in the same show at the same time doesn't mean they're doing it. And while those secrets are pretty bad, the parody secrets are even worse.

As for sincere claims? It comes back to the basis for the facebook rule: privacy.

We're not asking for your deepest darkest confessions here. We never have been. But the macros and the inside jokes aren't cutting it. Yes, they're clever and cute and well 'shopped, but lets play pretend and at least phrase them in as a secret.

Secrets will be posted only after they meet these specifications AND the judgment of the mods.
