Potential members, PLEASE think about whether you wish to remain anonymous or not before registering with any form of your real name. This is mandatory for Young Dancers, and highly recommended for Parents.

 

PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER USING THE NAME OF A DANCE SCHOOL, COMPANY, OR ANY BUSINESS. This is considered advertising, and we do not allow any form of advertising or solicitation on Ballet Talk for Dancers.

 

Please DO NOT put an email address in your display name. If you do that, the email address connected to your display name will be removed.

We've had a number of queries about this lately - so I'm reminding folks of Ms. Leigh's post from 2016:

Further information from years ago, which is still relevant for those going through the membership registration process:

WE REQUIRE YOU TO REGISTER WITH YOUR REAL EMAIL ADDRESS. Hotmail, bigfoot, yahoo, all other free email service email addresses WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

 

We have had people registering with someone else's name as a hotmail address, or making up a name that has turned out to belong to someone else, or taking out an email address to register but never check that mailbox. We need an accurate address where we can trace you if, for legal reasons, we are required to do so. We also need to be able to get in touch with you if there is a problem with a post.

 

By "real email address," we mean the address that is part of your connection to the internet: aol, mindspring, msn, earthlink, etc. If you are using the internet, you are connecting to it, and the email address associated with that account is the one that we need. If you are posting on a computer that belongs to another family member, you can get what is called an "alias" from the ISP (internet service provider) so that you can have your own email address.

 

Your email address is hidden from public view. No one except the site Administrators can see it. We do not sell or give away email addresses, or any personal information about posters and will not do so unless there is a situation (which has not yet arisen) where we are required to do so by law.

 

 

User Names

 

When you register, you will be asked to choose a user name. This name will appear on every post you make. For adults, you may use your real name or a screen names. For teens, it's best to use a screen name.

 

After you have registered, you will not be able to change your User Name, so please choose carefully.

 

We do not allow people to register with someone else's name -- including that of a dancer or other celebrity. "Mishafan" is okay. "Misha" or (a real example) "Barry Shneekoff" is not. Nor is "Clive Barnes" or "Oprah" or "Madonna." Using a pseudonym is fine, trying to make us think you're someone you're not is not.

 

And now, once you register, please post!!! It's discouraging that we get two to four new people every day, and many slip away into the night without ever introducing themselves or joining in a discussion.
