Someone has stolen my photos

If you have become aware of your photos posted to this website by another person without your consent. The instructions below will enable you to provide verification of your identity and consequently have those photos removed. You need to verify that you are the person who holds ownership to the photo(s) in question. This is necessary so that we can determine which party genuinely holds such ownership and which party is falsely claiming it.

You can email a picture to us at Society31@gmail.com holding up a piece of paper with the words "STOLEN PHOTOS" and the date written on it. We must be able to clearly see your face for the purpose of comparison. This is the simplest and easiest way to verify your identity.

You can also send us an image of your government issued photo-identification card. This can be your drivers license, passport, or other government-issued identification card which has your picture on it. You may black-out sensitive information, such as your identification number, if desired.

These are the only acceptable methods to positively identify yourself. Sending us other information, such as links to websites containing your photos, is not sufficient. You cannot report photos on behalf of another person. Please direct the person you are concerned about to this page.

I am not receiving notices when I have new messages

First please check the My Account page. Middle of the page, under preferences you can select to have notices sent to your personal email address. Make sure you have checked the box, then click on save all changes.

If that was not the issue then it could be due to the overly aggressive spam control mechanisms used by some email providers, email messages we send out to notify you that you have a new message on our website may be delayed, sent to the spam folder for your email account, or never received at all.

Our system will automatically keep trying to send these emails for 48 hours and, typically, these notification emails will eventually get through (but much later than when the message was actually sent). Due to this delay, you may end up reading a message on our website hours or even days before you receive the notification email for that message.

It is for this reason that users often falsely assume that they are not getting all of their messages and/or notification emails. If you suspect that you may be affected by this problem, we recommend that you check the spam folder associated with your email account to make sure that emails from us are not being marked as spam. Additionally, you should adjust the settings for your email account to prevent future emails from Society 31 from being blocked by the spam filter. The methods for both of these steps will vary so you will need to refer to the help pages for your email account for specific instructions.

I do not want to receive emails at my personal email

Go to the My Account page. Middle of the page, under preferences you can select to have notices blocked to your personal email address. Make sure you have un-checked the box, then click on save all changes
