This was just posted on the Lodestone forums, Thought I'd repost it here for future reference

Greetings,

Sorry for the delay in clarifying this, and with today's announcement seeming to cause more confusion.

Here is how non-disclosure agreement will work in Beta Test phase 3:

•Information will be free to post. Everything is open and you can post freely about any aspect of the beta test and your thoughts on it.
In regards to images and video in Beta Test phase 3:
•You can post images of phase 3 (no images from Alpha, phase 1 or phase 2)
•You cannot post audio or video.
We will be making a more detailed announcement before the start of Beta phase 3, but I wanted to share this general overview now.

Woohoo! Now if I get accepted into beta! I'll need to learn how to take pictures on a PS3 without resorting to a potato powered camera. :3

No, no, go with the potato powered camera. I want to see the game through the eyes of GLaDOS.

Indeed, fansites and testers will finally be able to talk about the amazing lack of farming higher level monsters as an effective way to level... Kidding!

It'll be nice to be able to discuss things without having to hold back and try to speak in code where you think you understand what you might be saying, but no one else does.

WHY?

Seriously.. everything else is apparently fine, including TALKING about the audio and video, we just can't display audio or video... that's just silly, frankly.

I'm guessing there will still be some animations and sound effects that still need to be ironed out, and they don't want the entire Internet flooded with cries of ZOMG TEH ANIMATIONS IN TEH GAME SUX!!!

They say a picture is worth 1000 words, so a 5min video @30fps is 9,000,000 words.

That's a lot of words.

You're on it! Don't let Zam down! :)

Not only that. Allowing audio or video is like showing spoilers. The whole sequence will be familiar and not shiny by the time the game ships. I'm sure gamespot and Ign will do the "Let's play ARR"

After all those grass threads on the official forum, we get threads about we cannot see the grass in motion or hear the wind breeze through it.

Hover over your user name in the top right corner, do you see a link to Images? If you do, upload your images there and use the code it gives you.
