    I see a forum has been created. But I don't see anything in the new T&C that says you have to use your own photo, so how do we determine who is fake? What will the procedure be over here?

    Since it seems like we can use whatever photo we want, my suggestion is to not worry about users with fake photos unless they're scamming, harassing people, or impersonating them with an intent to humiliate them. That may sound surprising coming from me, as the last active Fakers mod on the old site, but I don't think it's as big of a deal now that the site isn't mostly made up of underage users.

    Hey, @stonesgurl I might not have been a mod there, but I submitted my fair share, and I'm back ;)
    I'd like to see that a profile pic must be of the user if it's of a human.... but that's just me.

    Yes, you were one of the last active Fakers posters! And I see you've made a thread in the new one.

    At least some people kept checking the site.

    Oh yeah, the threads would often get a lot of views. Whether they were bots or actual people, who knows.

    The fakers will get more attention once we have a permanent moderator in place. Last I heard @Kevinovich was looking for one.

    I can't promise I'll be on that often. Anyway, I'm not sure what the procedure would be here, since on the old site the whole process was based on the rule that if you had a picture up you had to be in it, and it appears that on this one there is no such rule.

    And @CrackStarJames you'd be surprised. At the old site, even as dead as it was towards the end, there were still lots of fake accounts being generated. Most of them were trying to sell weight loss pills and crap like that, but still.
