Default So I got reported...for basically no reason! Now what?

I was in the trading room just a little bit ago and I saw this Himalayan cat getting picked on by a Border Collie. I absolutely cannot stand to see people getting bullied in the clubhouse so I stood up for her. She thanked me and even added me as a friend. Well, we were talking for a little bit and we somehow got on the topic about school. I mentioned that I was in "big school" (college) and that I enjoyed playing Webkinz with my younger sister. This freaked her out and she reported me! Now what?! Am I going to get banned? I don't think I did anything wrong! OK, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that I am a little bit older but there are so many adults that play Webkinz. It isn't just for little kids. I apologized repeatedly and told her I would leave the room, but she already disappeared before I could send the message. What do I do?

sorry this happened to you- I think its silly how some of the smaller children freak out if you say your an adult or something I mean I get it if they dont want to talk to you they can just say so and you can each go your separate ways but to report you for it? I dont get that.

I mean its not like we adults try to talk about anything other than webkinz stuff in there and its not like you know who you are talking to or not- I think adults should be allowed to say they are adults so that we all can know "who" it is were talking to-

again sorry that happened and hopefully nothing will come of it.

Yeah I don't know why some kids freak out that adults are on Webkinz either. I wasn't asking her any questions about her life or anything. I didn't ask for her age or her grade. I just mentioned that I was in college and this scared her! I feel terrible! Has this happened to you or anyone else on here?

But Luckily there was a very sweet Persian cat that was on my side. If you are reading this, THANK YOU! lol I forget her name but she was wearing a mushroom hat.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. I have had very long conversations in the clubhouse with people about how I'm in "cool hedge" (college); I don't think that this would constitute "giving away personal information" or "dangerous online activity." It's not like you said what college you want to or where your college is located. Tons of people constantly talk about how they're in "school" or something, so I don't think this is a big deal. It's up to [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] whether or not you will be banned, but in my opinion you should be fine.

LOL@ "cool hedge"! I spelled it "collage" and it went through. I really hope nothing happens.

Ive had it happen to me (never reported mind you) but Ive had them freak out and I even had one start to say very mean things to me- I just left the room. Maybe [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] should have like a colored dot above the pets head or something 1 color for kids and 1 color for adults - or make a separate KC+ area for adults only-

I even had one keep making the frowny crying faces and keep typing "scared" and I am thinking why??? bc I never usually even speak of anything other than webkinz related stuff. Of course I left so there were no issues but I tell ya if it were my kids I would teach them that isnt exactly how they should handle it.

It's not like a random adult just walked up to a child on the street and said "hey wanna be friends?!". I could see how that would be CREEPY and would make the child think back to when their mother told them "don't talk to strangers". It's a WEBKINZ CHAT! I didn't ask for any personal info or anything. She just kept saying "omg!" "your scaring me!" "i'm reporting you!". She even asked why I am on Webkinz. I told her because I enjoy playing on there with my younger sister and I like decorating the rooms. She still kept saying "omg!".

its not her/his fault that they got scared. maybe because all of their friends are kids? she/he may be like, 6 or ten or somethng and tey were scared, no need to be angry, kids get EALLY scared and report someone, then wish they could take it back later, its not like you were banned, right? then okay. she was just hypervenalating a little, got freaked out, and reported you. again, i'm sorry this happened. :/

If they did report you, you don't need to worry. [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] reviews each report sent, and if the report is unneccesary entirely, the reporter will get in trouble. So you're probably safe
