Please read the entirety of the userinfo before contacting me!
If you have a question after reading this, then go right ahead - information is near the bottom. :)

The way hpsecrets will work is pretty easy:
1. Design a graphic that relates to your secret (see recent secrets posts for examples). As long as it can be read, it doesn't have to be super pretty! Microsoft paint works just as well!
2. Go to tinypic.com, and where it says "browse," find the secret on your computer. Once you've selected it, click 'host picture'. Then take the code in the 'Link' box and copy the link to your clipboard. (control + c)
3. Find the weekly submissions post on the community page.
4. Hit the 'anonymous' user button, and paste (control + v) your link into the comment box.
5. Hit submit! if you get the following message, you did it right: Your anonymous comment has been added. According to this community's settings, it was marked as screened, and will be visible only to the community maintainers until they choose to unscreen it. You can go back to the comment thread here.
I post the secrets in random order, but I will post the secrets from the older submission post before the newer one. On Monday and Thursday I will post an entry (or two) with the secrets, and on Saturday I will post a small teaser post.

Things to keep in mind:

Please do not use this as a place to just be nasty to other fans!

There is no actual joining of the community as I'll be the only one posting, but add it to your friendslist to keep up with it.

The only secrets that will not be posted are secrets larger than 700 x 500, and secrets that outright bash other individuals or other secrets.

Please be honest -- lying in an anonymous forum is stupid.

Please only use tinypic.com or your own domain / subdomain to link to images! Your gallery at greatestjournal is defaulted to friendsonly, so I will most likely not be able to view your secret. Supload.com has disabled hotlinking, do not use it either. I will re-upload your secret on the community photobucket before posting, so don't worry if the URL has your name in it. I'm the only one that will see it.

Please do not use the [IMG] tag, it doesn't work on LiveJournal.

If you have any questions about anything, or are confused on how something works, email me (accio.secrets @ gmail.com).

Community Info completely ganked from hansonsecrets and edited where necessary. This is because I can't be assed right now to make my own rules page, but I'm giving credit where credit is due. Some links may be broken. I'll mak a new community info page later.
