[QUOTE=sparkledog;201660]yes- i find that very unfair! a moderator was telling that she was from georgia! thats what i put too. only the state! this is unfair and if you do not talk to your moderators about this, i will be alerting ww. im really really not trying to be rude but that is super double standard.


Please review the rules of the forum. The rules are there for everyone's protection and safety.

You let adults (if they say they're adults, at least) put the month they were born in, why not people who aren't adults? It's no safer for them than it is for us. There were thousands and thousands of people born in each month.
i agree with this - a month or season, or a basic age/grade doesn't "identify" anyone (or a basic province/state/country) -- giving out a fullname, address, phone number, that does and nobody should give that out on a public forum.. i wouldn't, nor would i allow my stepdaughter to do that....but if she were to say she was ten years old, or basic non-identifying info, i'm fine with that...

and fluffums, they edited mine and i'm not a kid - well okay, maybe at heart.. hence my love for webkinz

I've seen some topics where they went and edited almost everyone's post who said their age in it, except for a couple people who said they were 32 or 40.

It's not just about identifying kids, it's about targeting. Unfortunately, kids of certain ages may be targets for cyberstalkers. Also, some of this has to do with the law. If you are under 13, we cannot have you posting ANY of your personal info. We mods are discussing this and will try to be very consistent in the future.

Got it. Won't say anything

Not necessarily. Some cards such as VISA have rules against this and won't tend to hold you accountable for purchases you haven't made. I'm not sure about all credit cards, but the ones I've got are like this. Most of the CC machines are black anyways, it's hard to tell. However, there is a risk in certain countries over others, and places like street vendors should be watched. Anyone can steal your info if they really wanted to, though!


This is more on-topic. In accordance with COPPA, children under 13 are protected and cannot give any information without parental consent. More information can be found by googling it.

If it makes some of you feel better, I'm an adult and my posts still got edited, so it's not really like they're removing just the young peoples' information.
