REP for you!!!!! This thread is very helpful because their are lots of kids out there that don't know the dangers and could easily be hurt. And another thing:

You should never instant message with someone you have met online because it is an easy way for bad people to get personal information about you.

Great thread.

Since you posted other members tips, here's one from me.
You should be careful if you are ever talking about school grades. If you slip at all, you could end up saying something like 'I don't like the new 5th grade uniforms.' which could reveal your age. Bad.

Also, NEVER EVER EVER give out an email address or telephone number to a random person if they ask for it. EVER.
These people can hack into your accounts or find out where you live by tracing a phone call back to it's source.
Follow the rules!

Rep! This is so true, many web surfers (not necessarily WI members) are not careful online and give out pictures, addresses, and more! Its not safe. Its alright to post what your friends call you as a nickname like... "Bree" (mine). But that's completely different from telling people your full name and address.

Helpful!
Never give away your phone number or if someone gives theirs, DONT call it. They could have some type of caller ID that can find where the call is coming from.

Stay safe [=

Thanks for the tips! Rep for you!

There are plenty of good people on the internet, and especially on WI. But we all need to remember to play it safe and watch out for online predators!

My mom will let me tell my friends my age, town, and other stuff through PM, but not posting it or writing it on profiles.

This would be a good idea if there were less creeps out there. Even if you met at McDs and there were people around you still don't know what kind of a creep the person is that you are meeting. Sure they might **SEEM** nice, at first.
A few years ago I met this guy at the auto repair place. They were running behind so me and Hthis guy, "Bill" were there for a few hours and got to talking. He was very cute, had the most gorgeous blue eyes I'd ever seen, he seemed nice and normal and it seemed that we had alot in common. He gave me his number before my car was done and had planned to meet for coffee that weekend. I really thought I liked him. The following day at work I had some free time so I ran his name. (Let's just say I had the privilege of working for a place where I could so those things.) What I found out about him scared me. He'd been arrested several times for assault and battery and had a couple of active restraining orders against him from a few people. He'd also served 6 months in jail but I don't know what for. This taught me a valuable lesson that you can NOT be too careful!!! Like I said, the 2 hours talking to him he seemed normal, no red flags went up in my mind at all. The only good thing is that I never gave him my number. And it kind of frightens me that if I hadn't run his name I most likely WOULD have met him for coffee and who knows what might have happened.
My thoughts are that WI is a site to meet "ONLINE" friends and share advice on webkinz. Because it draws a large percentage of kids it very well may attract creeps. (I have a better word for them but using the word will likely get me banned.) Anyway, my personal opinion is that it would NEVER be a good idea to try to meet up with anyone here on WI. Better to be safe than sorry.
