Default Answered: A few questions about posting personal info and banning.

-pokes title-
I have a few questions about personal info and banning.
Here goes.

1. Are you allowed to post what state you live in?
Okay, that's a HUGE question I have.
I have seen so many people posting things like "Location: Washington" or "Its snowing in Nebraska" [just to throw some random ones out there]. Is that allowed? Because I've seen posts like that stay up forever. But if someone says "I'm X years old" it gets edited out by a mod/admin. So is this allowed? Or not? Can someone let me know? Because posting your state doesn't give away much, but at the same time gives away a WHOLE lot more then your age.

2. How do you get banned?
Okay, I'm not looking to get banned. But I've seen a lot of people I use to talk to/know getting banned recently. Is there something going on I don't know about? xD I mean, to get banned do you just repeatedly break the rules? Is there ONE thing that gets you banned right away? How long does a ban last?

Okay, I think that's all my questions for now.
Thanks.

What to expect in terms of moderation:

If you ignore any of the ABSOLUTELY NOT rules, you'll be moderated in one of the following ways:

* Temporary or Full access ban.
* Temporary posting ban.

What you can expect from us:

* Where possible/applicable, new users will be given a polite pointer to these guidelines if we deem it necessary.

WI Admin.



last name, age, city, school, phone number, etc So, first names and states are ok, last names and cities are not...

As far as banning, if you break an "Absolutely Not," it seems to be on how far you actually went... If the Mods and Admin believe you made an honest mistake, they will edit the post... and more than likely send a PM... If you definitely know better (ex. Gifted trying to trade on the open forum), it would be a ban of some sort...

Thanks for your response.
That's what I meant.
Like are we allowed to say I live in Maine just not I live in Somewhere, Maine.
That makes no sense.
x3

I hope you aren't banned either.

Default Re: A few questions about posting personal info and banning.

As far as i know we are allowed to say what state/province we live in but not what city we live in.
I've never been banned before so i don't know much about it. I do know that some bans only last for a certain amount of time (like a month) and some bans are forever.

Default Re: A few questions about posting personal info and banning.

States are ok.
As far as things that would get someone banned, listed in the rules are the 'big no no's'.
As far as how long someone is banned for, that's between the staff and the person only.

This link has some good, detailed info about rules:
