How do I post a picture (JPEG) on a post?  


If you were planning on posting a picture of yourself, please be aware of our guideline:

Confidentiality: Members shall not post information that directly or indirectly discloses the identify of their family members, friends or relationship partners with BPD. This includes (but is not limited to) direct information such as real names, addresses, business/home/cell phone numbers, e-mail addresses, etc., as well as, indirect information such as pet names, churches, etc.

Members having off-board information about another member shall not to disclose it. Off-board is defined as anything not posted by the member, themself, publically, on the bpdfamily.com message board. Information learned from other sources, including any public or private source, should never be posted.

If such information is posted, the offending posts will be removed without warning.

It is also strongly recommended that members do not directly or indirectly disclose their own identity. You are discouraged from registering user names or avatars that you have used elsewhere, or disclosing personal facts that would be identifying to people in your life.

Please be aware that face photo are prohibited due to privacy concerns.  Even if you aren't concerned about protecting your own identity, if you post a picture of yourself, you may have inadvertently disclosed the identity of a BPD loved one or ex-loved one.
