linking your social media accounts

Precautions to take to avoid being doxxed:

(mentioned this before, but after what just happened to @ummquestion, I’m gonna make another post)

-Don’t give out your full name and age at the same time. Even if you have a really ordinary name, your age added onto that might make it really easy for people to find more of your personal information. Don’t even give out your full name if you really want to stay safe. There are directories where people can find out exactly where you (and your family) live just by searching both. A lot of the times they have phone numbers too. 

-If anyone sends you a suspicious link, don’t click on it. It could be one of those ip grabbers where someone can obtain your I.P address and then use that to get your location.

-Don’t link photos directly from your social media accounts (that probably contain really personal info like Facebook). Someone could use this to do a reverse image search of some sorts. I never ever post pictures I post on Facebook or other social media on here for this reason. 

-And if you can try not to post other social media with any sort of personal info on here. I keep this website completely separate from those.

-IP address blockers. 

I probably sound paranoid, but some people on here are really crafty when it comes to doxxing. You don’t wanna risk someone possibly putting you danger or ruining your life cause something you posted on the internet made them mad. 

LDR Date Idea #12

Get some cute apps!

There are a handful of really great apps for both iOS and Android designed just for couples!

There are two in particular Aurora and I use:

1. Couple

Couple links you and your parntner’s accounts. Like a social media site just for two! It features a standard chat room, a calendar for important dates, lists that you can edit together, video call, phone call, and even a little room where you can doodle on your phones together!

But my personal favorite feature is called Thumb Kiss. It’s essentially a blank screen that you can touch, but when your partner touches their screen, the spot they’re touching shows up for you! And when your fingerprints touch (or “kiss”!) your phone will vibrate and the screen will flash pink. It’s super cute!!!

2. Happy Couple

Happy Coupe is a super cute trivia app just for you and your partner! Every day, the app will give you 5 multiple choice  questions about your partner, as well as the same 5 questions to answer about yourself. It’s a really cute way to get to know each other even more.

Not to mention, the app also provides relationship advice and gives you “challenges” like “Think about three things you adore about your partner and describe it to them.”

[HOW TO] YOUTUBE MV VIEWS

Honestly, being able to effectively stream the comeback MV is just as important as streaming on music app. Not only does the view gets counted towards Music Show wins, being able to reach a certain number of views generates positive news for the album and for Bangtan. Let’s try our best for this too~

  • REPLAY BUTTON DOESN’T COUNT AS A VIEW.
  • Do not re-upload the videos on any other sites. Reupload means, you download it as video and then reupload it on your own page or channel. This will take away views from the official MV.
  • YOU NEED TO WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO. DO NOT MUTE. Plug in earphones on the device if you’re getting tired hehe~
  • Share the link on all your social media accounts, clicks from shared links will count as a view. Ask some of your friends!!! 
  • If you have a youtube account, use it to like, comment and share the video. But multiple views are more effective if you log out of the account or in incognito mode.
  • WATCH BOTH MVs ON 1THEK and iBIGHIT channel. 
  • Watching in incognito mode counts best, go to the youtube page and search for the MV title and click the link.
  • Multiple tabs doesn’t count
  • Create a playlist than has a total playing time of more than 30 minutes, please add DOPE and FIRE MVs (frm 1theK channel) to also help increase the views on those MVs.
  • Switch devices from time to time. PC then mobile or vice-versa.
  • After about every 5-6 hours, clear your cache.

There are a lot of different information on how to view MVs effectively just some things to keep in mind.

  • Youtube tracks your view based on your IP address. If you view the video once, it counts and then youtube kind of IDs your IP on their system.
  • Then they have preventive measures for bots or programs who can manipulate this view count, so if youtube identifies your IP address as viewing a specific link over and over in a SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, it will treat it as spam and invalidate these views.
  • That’s why you create a playlist so you can watch other videos and your IP won’t register as watching the same thing once you go back to the comeback MV link.

ARMYs please do share your best practices as replies below!!! We might have varying techniques on this. What is important is that you make sure that your view counts!!! Thank you~~~ ^_^

How to become a Guest Author for Queer History, and the Benefits

First, let’s talk about the benefits. We will be paying 16 dollars an article right now, and will hopefully continue to be able to pay 50% of what we make off an article to any guest author, and as we get more money so will the guest authors. We will edit this post as we grow to let you know how much money to expect from an article.

Also we will be able to link any social media account you want on our patreon, Tumblr, and Facebook, and will use your name(does not have to be your legal or birth name) in citing the author. If you do not want your name or social media accounts linked we will accommodate to that as well. But for just starting writers, while we are not a large company being able to say you have written professionally is a good thing to have on any resume.

And now How To Become a Guest Author

  1. We will be paying through paypal so you must have a account there.
  2. You will also need a Patreon account, as we will be taking article submissions through the message system there, as the tumblr message system is unreliable at best, and we don’t want to lose anyone’s articles. If you cannot do that, email yoursubmission into us at queerhistorypatreon@gmail.com
  3. No terfs or any other transphobic people are allowed to write for us.
  4. For your submission we will be asking for:
  • The opening paragraph, summing up what you are writing about and some preliminary information regarding where you plan to go with the article, must be between 100-500 words.
  • All writers must be queer, this is an honour system thing, we want to be hiring queer artists exclusively, so if you are an ally this opportunity is not for you.
  • We will have a basic wish list released at the beginning of each month of article themes, or possible topics, while you do not have to pick something off of there, your article is more likely to be chosen if it is from there.

If you are chosen as a Guest Author, that’s great! Here is what to expect

  1. We will need a method to communicate with you as you write your article, while we will give you a lot of creative control we do want a bit of control over the completed content, so be open to edits and critiques. We want to produce the best possible content for our audience and we are sure you want to produce to the best content to represent yourself, so we will need to be able work with you to make that happen.
  2. We will need to be able to make sure you are not a bad person, don’t worry this wont be hard, all we will need is a link to one of your social media accounts, and it wont be a tough vetting process. Just making sure you are not outwardly transphobic, homophobic, aphobic or anything like that.
  3. Sources for your article.
  4. A full article over 1000 words that follows the basic template of our previous articles, remember to add on a quote if you can find one.
  5. A picture for your article that is in the public domain.
  6. And just a willingness to cooperate with both of the runners of the project, myself(Laura Mills) and Grace Wordsworth.
  7. We will pay at the end of the month through paypal as that is where and when we get the money from the article to pay you.

Anyone up for bi-monthly art competitions

Just for fun and a feature tab on the blog if you win for a month (will include pic of your work that won, an artists statement from you, and a link back to all your social media accounts you want to link)

There might be times with real prizes but i'mma talk to some people about sponsoring those.

Get your art out to 16.5k+ people

Judgement based on likes/reblogs of work or a group of my art peers (aka a bunch of mica/baltimore artists) which one is more fair?

Like/reblogs so I can tell interest
