How to take a “good” selfie for verification purposes

Some of you are true wizards in taking selfies, others have a real talent for Photoshop.

Remember that we want YOU? If you must try your skills, fair enough, but it may cost you your account (fake accounts are against our Community Guidelines or Terms of Use).

We thought it’s about time to give you some hints on creating a “good” selfie that has all the details we’re looking for:

  1. Your face is fully visible. Nothing is hidden.
  2. A piece of paper with your username and today’s date handwritten. We don’t accept anything else.
  3. We need to be able to see that it’s you holding the paper: The picture has to show your full arm holding the paper. You have 2 options to get that shot:
    • The easy version: Someone is taking a picture for you.
    • The complex version: You’re doing it yourself.
