    Any male can create a female account and "photo verify" the account by writing his username on cardboard and posting it for verification.

    Am I missing something important here?

    I'd rather it was an ass shot.

    Showing my Arse would be preferable to showing my face.

    I disagree, even though I'm quite taken with both. And don't worry, you're already photographically verified by my standards. :wink::tongue:

    I agree Drifter to a point.

    I think that in the nude shots there should be at least one of them that has the sign in it for it to count.

    Since face shots are kind of a taboo here because of exposure off the net.. I think if they are going to put up shots of themselves nude then to be verified people must put their sign in one of them that shows that they aren't frauds.

    That's the point of it isn't it?

    Showing ANYTHING would be preferable to only showing your fingertips! :tongue:

    uh...only my eyes show in my verification photo because i feel no need to "prove" myself to anyone here. lol.

    i could care less if someone thinks my photos are fake, because i've been on cam in the video chat, and people can testify to that.

    also, i try to make sure that in the other photos i put up there are recognizable things so people know it's the same room, but not noticeable enough for someone who's been in my room to realize it! lmao!

    The appropriate forum, perhaps? :biggrin1:

    You're absolutely right, though...the practically nonexistent standards for "verification" make the entire process meaningless.

    pah!

    i've posted my face and my body here, but i'm not verifying.
    my looks aren't relevant to what i'm saying, so why would i feel the need to prove the two are connected?

    this verification thing is weird!

    I did have a gallery and a private album but I yanked them.
    I left the verification picture for fear of being banned.
    It was deemed acceptable by site admin.
    I'm not complaining.

    I think the verification picture at first was meant to verify legal age and in some cases the truth about being female.
    But yeah, lately I also stumbled acrossed verified members whose verification pic showed a cuddly pet with a sign but no sign of an human being.
    Pretty senseless imho.

    I think the best that has always stuck in my mind and she is no fake was ManlyBanisters Miss Piggy with the . Org verification note - Priceless, but like you say what does that verify?

    See, here is my thought as a member and has been for ages.

    If you verify yourself, you should show some part of you.

    Showing a finger or a book isn't verifying anything.

    Now, I don't think a person has to show their face or anything, but if you have a gallery full of pictures of "your" cock... you should be more than capable to make a verification photo of that SAME cock. Same with your ass.

    There is no sure-fire system. Even if you have a nude photo with face for a verification pic, that's no guarrantee the subject is the person posting, as they could have asked some exhibitionist friend to pose in their place. I think treating people online is about taking them at face value without really putting any trust in them. You can't be a cynic or you won't enjoy talking to anyone, but there are enough fakers and cheats out there that you also shouldn't become invested.

    the women who are fakers are usually SO bloody obvious.

    i'm almost inclined to think that any guy dumb enough to suck up to them, on the basis of some bad porn pics, deserves to be conned.

    My home is wherever reality seems elastic and the
    i didn't mind doing a face verification, but one day i will probably disappear without a trace.

    it is true the fake women are usually transparent, to those that are observant anyway.
    however sometimes someone pulls a fast on ya!
    teased silly will know what i am talking about, i am referring specifically to tiff86.
    i really thought she was a real girl. excuse me, "she".

    Well "she" underplayed the part, whereas others play it up for attention. And her pics seemed real enough, which is case in point why pics offer no guarrantees.

    But as a guy who has historically been on the gulible side, I think the issue is not so much stupidity as being led around by the wrong organ. :D There is usually some suspicion, but it's ignored because it gets in the way of what we want. With a clear head spotting the fakers is typically straightforward.
