OK, I changed my password on myspace and forgot it( yeah I'm dumb lol) I requested my password but still havnt got it in my email..

I wrote to myspace and its been a week now.. So I looked at what they require you to do and they want me to post a Myspace salute (not in a public place), and send them the web address of the myspace salute and my profile.. what the heck is a myspace salute? where do I post the salute? I hope someone can help me..

This is the message @Myspace--- If you can't log into your account at all, and you aren't receiving the password for your account, we will need a myspace salute from you so we can verify you are the owner of the profile. Make sure to not post your salute in a public place, and send the web address of your salute and your profile to MySpace.com.

Re: Myspace Salute?

What is happening to myspace that you feel it necessary to demand I send you a picture of myself holding information that assures you it's me in order to get a new password? It's the most ridiculous action I have ever been asked to follow. I do not own a digital camera and my webcam isn't working at the moment, but there is no way I am sending you my picture by snail mail. This makes no sense whatsoever. Either this is some ill-conceived prank by someone not even affiliated with Myspace, or some Myspace employees are screwint with us. If that is the case, then you really need to check this out. I am sending you the email I received this morning:

Thanks for contacting MySpace.

We are very sorry and apologize for the inconvenience but in order to assist you further, we will need a salute from you. We only ask for a salute when it involves an important matter of privacy and security.

To make a salute, here's what you do:

1. Write MySpace and your MySpace friend ID or your MySpace vanity profile ID, for example http://profile.myspace.com/...viewprofile&friendid=0000000 or http://MySpace.com/VanityProfile) on a piece of paper

2. Take a photo holding the paper in front of you (right side up, please). Make sure there's a clear view of your lovely face.

3. On the MySpace Help page (http://www.myspace.com/help) click Contact MySpace, choose Log in as the Category and Here is my Salute as the sub-topic. Be sure to attach your salute and make sure the image file is under 4MB.

4. Tell us why you're sending a salute in the Question box and you're done!

Important stuff to know:

- if you don't have a camera, consider using a cell phone camera, or using your own or a friend's Web cam to take a photo

- you must be able to see you holding the salute in the photo you submit (in other words, we want to see your hands holding the Salute with a clear view of your face; no Photoshop)

- you MUST have a photo in your MySpace profile that clearly shows your face

- the salute must be hand-written (we cannot accept typed salutes)

- salutes cannot be submitted by posting them to your MySpace profile and sending us a link

- MySpace will never ask you to submit a video or webcam salute, so if you get an email message or MySpace message asking you to do so, please let us know at once!

Sincerely,
The MySpace Support team

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but this bizarre email from you contradicts itself. First, I am told to do the salute bit, then at the bottom, you say that you wouldn't actually ask for a salute and to disregard the request.

The worst part about all this is that when I sent you an email about this, I got this SAME MESSAGE again.

Either pick one or the other. Your credibility at this point has taken a nosedive.

Please DO NOT respond to this with yet another request for a salute. Your behaviour is suspect at this point. I am not an idiot.

Please respond with a REAL answer this time. My patience is wearing thin with these unprofessional antics.

Re: Myspace Salute?

FWIW: Asking you to send in a photo salute IS different than asking for a video or webcam salute. Those two are live things, not a simple photo. Its not a contradiction in their email; they're different things.

But hey its a free website. Ya get what ya pay for, and that includes customer service.

I e-mailed myspace about not being able to log in. They sent me the link to the "top 10 reasons you can't log in" and i responded saying "I already read this on your site." They they replied by asking me to send them a salute. This ^^^ worked. Somehow, my password was wrong. I just logged in!
P.S. I copied and pasted the password. I do not know if that makes a difference.

Myspace does not have a really good track record of getting back to people. Out of three sepreate times I did have to contact them, they only responed to one of my complaints/problems.

myspace salute

A myspace salute is a picture of you holding a clear sign (piece of paper or whatever) with the words "MYSPACE.COM" and your friend ID number... the sign should look something like

MYSPACE.COM

FRIEND ID= XXXXXXX

 

With the friend ID x's being filled in with your ID number...

Salute

You'll then have to upload the picture to the web... in a non public place... you can register a free account in at a number of places and upload there... Not sure, maybe photobucket or geocities?

Then send the URL to myspace via the myspace contact form. Include any other information they requested here as well.

Hmm... That should work...

Re: Myspace Salute?

i guess I'm trying to figure out the salute thing too. It seems soooo rediculous! I have to take a photo of myself, showing my hands holding it, write some info which HAS to be hand written, you can't photoshop, if you don't have a camera you have to buy one, and you have to create any kind of site that allows you to post photos privately. This is completely stupid. Who is this site ran from, a bunch of fourth graders????

No one resonds to me, but automated machines. I just want to get a new primary email.

Re: Myspace Salute?

i did a myspace salute back in 2005 because someone had a profile pretending to me. the other profile got deleted pretty quickly. but that's back when people actually used myspace...

Re: Myspace Salute?

I get the same issues with myspace privacy and support groups but I have a bigger concern. All the emails that have been sent back and forth are getting copied to (somebody)@cox.net. I have no clue as to who this is but from the email address its not a professional email. seems more like some everyday joe guy. There is a major privacy concern here!!!

Re: Myspace Salute?

Can anyone tell me if this is for real. It is hard to beleive that i would get an email back telling me to do this. I am trying to get my email address changed. It feels like i am being made-fun-of!!

Thanks for contacting MySpace.

We're sorry, but we'll need you to send us another salute. Keep in mind that we only ask for a salute when it involves an important matter of safety and security.

Please attach a photo of yourself holding the salute sign with one hand and holding up three fingers with the other hand. Make sure the room is well lit and that your MySpace Friend ID is handwritten legibly on your sign. Keep in mind that salutes CANNOT be hosted on a MySpace profile, since the image could be fraudulent. Note: The image size needs to be below 4MB.

Once your salute is reviewed and your identity is verified, the image will be discarded and we will proceed with your request and/or remove the fraudulent profile in question.

HELP. . . . .

Re: Myspace Salute?

Thanks for all the feedback. I posted my question here because Myspace didn't respond. Sorry about that. I'm seriously considering deleting my account. It's more trouble than it's worth and I have a million other things on the go that are far more important.
