Default DONT release personal information.

I'm not making this thread for post count OR reps. I'm making this thread because just a minute ago someone asked me what school i go to on my profile. I reported it. Remember NEVER give out your:
-Full name
-Age (unless your 18 or older)
-School
-your face (a big no no)
-hints to your age (Example: Some one says there between the ages of 13 and 15. Very obvious what that person's age is)
-your address ( once again a big no no)
-on the calender don't release personal information;many people actually read the calender(thanks for the reminder DixieCup! )
Above all;don't release personal information

Remember: If someone asks you for personal information on here;get an adult;don't reply to it; and report it.

I already know that. But it's for some members that don't read the rules and just say they agree.

AndrewHoya, if most people read the rules then Lizzywebkinz would not have had to report someone on her profile asking her for her age.
Lizzy, what you did was right, if someone asks your age or 'relative age' you should report it. That is a huge issue, here. Because we have so many children who use this site; Security and safety are a paramount. That is something that has to it's name.
Don't even leak out bits and pieces of info here and there because if there IS a predator who is following you all they have to do is put the pieces together and they have the information they need.
Checklist:
No ages or birthdates
No names (more the last name)
No schools
No team colors or team names
No mascots
No pictures
No telling where your 'gymnastics class is competing.'
When in doubt...keep it to yourself. It is for your safety we ask this.

As for members reading rules?? Sure, they may have read the rules, but are they FOLLOWING them?

Default Re: DONT release personal information.

That is why I said MOST. I think the problem is that new members can't find them, and therefor might break a few.

Default Re: DONT release personal information.

This is something big to remember. We want to keep every member safe. You did the right thing by reporting them. Giving out personal info is very unsafe, and will only bring a predator one step closer to finding you. Even the smallest info can add up in time and the results will not be good. Everyone needs to remember this, never give out:
Your last name
School name
Age
Town
School info [even small things can add up]
The name of a place you are vacationing at, or anything like that
Don't even give out things like the name of a local store

[rep to you]
