How to become photo verified / gold member.
Anyone can become photo verified. When you provide photo verification you become a "Gold Member" of LPSG. You get a badge under your username in the forum and you're able to access more content on the site. If you don't want to provide photo verification but still want to be a "Gold Member" you can purchase a Gold Membership by upgrading your membership here
. By providing photo verification you get free Gold Membership. If you remove your verification photo from a public album or if you make your album private, you must create a new thread in the Photo or Video Requests Forum with "Removed Verification" in the title. Your Gold Membership will be removed. Failure to notify of a removal of photo verification may result in banning from LPSG.

1. Upload a photo of you along with a sign to a public album (more info). You should clearly be visible in the photograph (so that its clear it's you in the picture) and the sign should state "LPSG" and "Your Username". Make sure to use large and legible font and the image is clear and easily read. A printed page will work best.
2. From the LPSG home page, click on the forum "Photo or Video Verification Requests".
3. Create a new thread (more info) in the Photo or Video Requests Forum with "Verification Request" as the title. Make sure that the first post of the thread contains a direct link to the photo containing your verification image.
4. As soon as possible, an LPSG administrator will mark your profile as photo verified and you will be upgraded to gold member status.
