Question: How many crossdressers are needed to take one photograph?
Answer: Nobody knows. Once a crossdresser starts taking photographs of herself they just never stop at one!
So, yes, many of us take photographs of ourselves when we are “dressed up” and looking pretty (we hope!) and we do it for many different reasons. I won’t even try to touch on that topic.
But as managing Ambassador in Media, and as a follow up on the Internet safe practices topic posted by BillieJay, let’s look at some of the related topics when uploading images to the CDH servers, shall we?
A great starting point is taking a couple of minutes to read the photo posting rules and guidance, and the Community Code of Conduct.
Remember that all images uploaded to our servers are subject to moderation. Including profile and cover images, uploads in the chat room, groups, and private galleries (these for Baroness memberships and above), and the photos submitted to the Public photos section.
Private galleries are not visible to anybody who is not signed in to CDH, and will not appear as results on internet search engines (think Google and similar).
Even with this privacy practice in place, don’t forget that the only definitive way your photo won’t be ever found either intentionally or accidentally by somebody “surfing the net” is by never uploading your photo to any computer or device connected to the internet.
Here comes one piece of advice: don’t ever upload any content you would be embarrassed or even ashamed of if found by your family, coworkers, teammates, etc.
Even if you meet somebody here in CDH, any personal information you may end up sharing with them outside CDH leaves us without any possibility of helping you shall things happen with that information you shared in private
Also, depending on how “out” you are to those around you (or how deep into the closet you are) avoid photos with content that can be identified by those who know you. From license plates. Street number (of full address even), diplomas in the background, company awards, etc.
Several of the rules in place are also to prevent our members from being identified. We don’t allow for non-crossdressing photos (with very few exceptions!) and we definitely don’t allow for photos of minors.
We also don’t allow for embedded email addresses, phone numbers, or URLs in photographs. But we can’t stop you from sharing information about yourself, even though we advise you not to do so. Sometimes, all it takes is a motivated individual to put all the clues together and find you in real life. No, I am not advocating for our users to post lies about themselves. But be careful with what you share in public!
if you have any questions about CDH in general, including but not limited to security, don’t hesitate in contacting any of the Ambassadors, we will be happy to help!
