Default Allow 18+ To Discuss Their Location

I know there is a rule that you are not supposed to mention your location in posts. I learned this when talking in my FYE sales post. It seems people do it anyway, and the moderators really can't keep up with all the postings to edit them out and issue warnings.

Maybe implement a rule where people who are 18 or over are allowed to discuss their location, but those under 18 can't? I know this is probably logistically impossible and will be shot down, but it's worth a thought! One issue that people might bring up is - how do you prove who is 18? But at least from a legal standpoint, all you have to do is require people to list their birthdate, and if they lie, it isn't your fault.

Well I think if you see someone breaking the rules tell a mod so they can edit it out. They do the best they can. That is a good suggestion though.

I'm sorry, but I don't really think this would be a good idea...
Like you said, how would they know that the age that we put is really ours... we could have just made up a Birthday.

Yes, but like I also said, it's not their obligation to verify age. That's the law. I guess it's just the good nature of the owners of WI to put safety before responsibility, which is a good thing, but it stinks to not be able to connect with other grown ups in my area to find out about sales, or do trading, or what have you. *sigh*

I have to agree with DotDotDuck. They could have just made up a birthday.
Thanks for suggesting, though!

Wink Re: Allow 18+ To Discuss Their Location

I don't think that anyone should post their location for safety reasons. Anything that is posted on WI(or anywhere else on the internet) can be viewed by the whole world. But, it's still a nice suggestion!!

Well, I guess the staff is just trying to keep us safe- which is a good thing

I've seen adults here posting things like "I sent you an email" to other adults, but I'm not sure if they gave out their email on WI... maybe they're friends in real life? I don't know if its allowed, but if your an adult, maybe you could exchange emails... But like I said, I'm not sure if it's allowed, then you would be able to talk somewhere else, instead of on WI, so you could say anything you want. The staff can't control what goes on off WI...

Default Re: Allow 18+ To Discuss Their Location

Yeah, this wouldn't be a good idea. It's not good to give your location to anybody, especially at a friendly and safe environment like WI.

Default Re: Allow 18+ To Discuss Their Location

I'm sorry but i really don't think thats a good idea there are still Nutzo people that are like 18 and over and if the 18+ kids are telling their location that is free game for the nutzo people and wi only allows people to be safe and that is not being safe
