Default ~*~ Don't be afraid to report someone ~*~ ::UPDATED::

Alright, with the new WI$, some people will do anything to get the 'money'. Even without the $, I think that this needs to just be a helpful reminder.

Spamming-
If you see someone posting something like:

safkjsdivjfigjrekgnjvjjfdkgjfdkgfdkjbgfkdjg
or
hhhhhheeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyy wwwhhhhaaaattttttsssssss uuuuuuuuupppppp??

then you need to report it. It is spam and chances are the people are trying to get WI$ or just get attention. When do you report someone, make sure you do it.... quietly. Don't make a big scene of it.

Bullying/Harassing-
This is EXTREMELY rare on WI, in fact I haven't seen it but a few of my friends have. This is just bullying people online. It includes name calling, threats, etc.
"Ugh, I hate you! You are a horrible person and I can't see why you are on this website. It would be better without you!"
If you see anything like that, flag it. Chances are though, it won't be in public. It will probably be in PMs. If you are being bullied, immediately forward it or copy and paste it and send it to a MOD/ADMIN, who will take it from there. Don't be afraid to tell someone.

Personal Info-
We all know about this. Pretty much it is the main greeting on the Hi, my name is Joe and I LOVE my Webkinz! Even though we hear this, it may not always be followed. DO not give out info like your hometown, school, city you live in, cities around your town, age, etc. If someone asks you for any of that info, flag it. The MODs need to know to keep an eye on them.

Great reminder! If the mods/admins think it was just a mistake, they won't do anything. It's also ok, even if the person is your friend, whether you know them in real life or not...

I believe that would be considered a spam post where someone did it just to get WI$

Thanks so much for the reminder! I have also flagged several posts, because of spam and personal information.

Another reminder that might be helpful is Trading outside of the gift exchange. I've seen that on a few threads, mostly from new members. It's a good thing to remember to flag.
Also, E-mail addresses and phone numbers are considered personal information! I've flagged posts with that in it, also.

Thanks, again, for the awesome reminder!

Okay - I'm all for saftey but my thread got deleted becuase I said my HAIR color(s)!
I think if you see someone at the mall with the same color hair as someone on WI said they had and you think Oh that MUST be ____ then you kinda need to get a life.......
