In this journal, Anonymous IP Logging is On: This means that each anon who post is distinguished from another, this discourage trolls and sockpuppets, and authorship disputes (if you see someone reposting your anon fills as their own, contact me).

Signed In Posts Are Not Logged. - I thought it was a nice compromise, but I think I made a mistake. The problem is when Anon Posts are reposted elsewhere (with name) or when it ends with a link to the author's journal: this was what was often done in some other kink memes, I like it, this was how I rolled because: No usernames, people read and fill prompts for the prompts themselves, but then when they are done reading, they know where to find more when I leave a link to my journal.
- So a Reminder: Authors are the exception to the no sign in rule, if you are posting a fill you are totally allowed to do it signed in. I do encourage Anon, but I totally understand it if you chose Sign In (where there will be no IP logging).
- If you have prompted or replied to a fill while signed in, I thank you kindly for remembering to delete it and repost it as anon, but due to the logging thing, if you don't want me to know your IP, wait a bit and change the wordings.

How IPs could be problematic:

Unless you have a really crappy provider, they shouldn't give out your account information just because someone phone them up with your IP Address, the presence of your IP Address alone will not dox you online, what will dox you online is:

You revealing your own information online, if you have posted your full name, and or picture, and/or highschool, workplace, information that could narrow you down, if you have done that from your home computer, your usual IP Address, then you need to remember that your usual IP address now have a biography online. For example, if you were a Wikipedia contributer who started out anon so your IP address is up there, and then you made a bio with your name on it, because Wikipedia is something to be proud of right? AND THEN you also exposed your IP address publicly at the Fetish Fuel Wiki, this is not good.

This is why you should never post your IRL id details with your regular IP Address, okay, if you reading this, and you haven't done it (check by googling your address, oh, speaking of google, don't google your full name and work place and then freaky stuff because google keeps a record of Things Googled By The Same Address, you can however, combat this by also googling the full name and work place of as many people as you know! Likewise, me being a writer explain away why I was googling about where to dispose of a body, Mr./Mrs.Officer Sir!) If your ID doesn't come up, it shouldn't be a problem that your IP is here, especially since only I, [ profile] gsyh, can see it. In the future I might pass this account to someone else, but I promise you it won't be willy nelly, and it'll be several years down where your addresses will probably have changed right?

If you don't want your IP address attached to your prompt/fill however, you could comment HERE (Please use SUBJECT HEADING, pairing and kink), and I will repost it to the appropriate meme/thread.

In the LINKED Post:
Signed Comments: Not Logged
Signed Comments: Not Screened
Anon Comments: Screened
Anon Comments: Not Logged
(Mod Note: Humbug! LJ doesn't let you turn off IP logging for just one post, so I'm using the above LJ until I can remember the password for an RPG account, therefore, don't bookmark that, bookmark this.)

RetroErase: If you want your IP Address detached from your prompt, locate it again, and remember to use Subject Heading "Delete My Address", and I'll delete it and repost it from MY Address, this would erase your address and obscure my prompts among yours, bwhahahaha. Reply Anon of course.

Reminder: as of this posting, KM5 is sleeping, posting your prompts later, and you can fill it now, but hey, we'll still be here in a week. Go here:
