Default Unanswered: personal info.?

Hello everyone, I hope your all having a great day! I'm back with another question for you. I know that the rules here state not to give out any personal information about yourself. I understand the reason for this and applaud the WI team for wanting to keep it's members safe. My question is this however, do the same rules apply in regards to PM's between members? Can you talk more freely in a PM, or do you still have to limit what you say? I haven't sent a PM to anyone yet, but I want to be clear on what the rules are before I do. I don't want to accidently disrespect the rules of this site. Thanks for your help with this question!

Same rules apply everywhere!
In PMs like something personal happens to you..not like you're giving out your age or anything [unless over 18]
If you want to share personal information, then well i guess you can go on a different chat site (:

However if you are over 18, you can share photos of yourself, and your age


have a wonderful day

It depends on what you mean by 'talk freely'.
If you mean say your age, state you live in, ect. Then that's not such a good idea.

The person you are PMing may not be who they say they are. They may share that little bit of information you give them with other users.

Yes, these rules do apply, therefore don't go sharing any of your personal info. The great thing about pm's is that they are more personal and cannot be seen by other WI users. Just be careful what you say

I have kinda wondered that too. About a week ago someone sent me a pm and was talking about my daughter's name being the same that she named her daughter but she had told me how old her daughter was and wanted to know how old mine was. I didn't really see a problem with tell her since my daughter won't ever be on here. But I wouldn't want to give out other type of info where everyone can see.

I'm pretty sure that the same rules apply. Even if your chatting with a good friend you know in person, its better to be safe than sorry! Before you send a PM, think, "would I be safe posting this on a public thread?" If the answer is no, you should probably alter it to fit the standards. Make sure that everything you post, in PM's and normal posting do not give out any information that could tell something about you. The farthest I would go is gender, since most people have it on the bottom of their post anyway. I hope I helped, and good luck safe PMing!
