It's not a good idea to tell your age because, in some people's cases, it can end friendships. Like, let's say you're a certain age and another member, your friend, is 4 years older than you. If you gave out your age you might feel uncomfortable talking to someone so much older than you and the other member might be like "oh, i don't want to be friends with a little kid."

If someone does ask you your age, here are some things you can do:
-Keep it simple. Give them 2 numbers and say" I'm under 100 and over 0."
-Tell the person you aren't comfortable talking about this.
-Report them, it's you that draws the line


Please don't give me rep for this, i'm not a rep hog like a lot of people here. I just want to make a point.
I'd love to give you a rep for this post; but you don't want one. Also in the calender some people put this: Example:
"(Insert WI username here)'s (picking random age) 12th b-day!" And even though it seems not many people look at the calender;a lot of people actually do!
When i put my birthday on the calender on here;i just put: "Lizzyxwebkinz' birthday!" not putting in the age I'm going to be at all.
Good point!
Once again i wish i could give you a rep but you don't want one.

I'm not accusing anyone, I'm just saying that there are a lot of people on here that seem tothink rep is everything. I'm making a point, not trying to get people to give me something I don't need.

Friendships aren't about genders, ages, or looks, it is about the type of person the person you wold like to be friends with are.

I agree!!!

I just meant some friendships might be affected by this, but you definitely have a point. I agree with that, i only meant some people might be affected by this.

I agree 100%! Plus, maybe the person reading your post isn't 14...they're 40. Just keep that in mind, everyone! I want to give you rep but you don't want any and I respect that!

I agree, some people may feel uncomfortable talking to someone if there is a big age different. It's also important not to give that out because you never know who might not be such a good person. That just gets them one step closer. We definitely don't want anything bad happening to anyone. If you see someone has posted their age, be sure to flag it, and the staff will remove it. There's also an issue because an adult may lie about being a kid, and that could be bad. thank you for posting this. (:
