Default An EASY way to give out personal information :(

Hi everyone. I see lots of people easily giving out personal information without even knowing it. How, you ask? Well, by usernames! So many people will put the year they were born after their username! For example, if my cat were to join WI and do this () it might be like this: MycatStorm05 It's a completely simple way to give out personal information through the year you were born! Though it is not possible to change your username once you join, it's a great reminder.

Remember that on WI it is against the rules to say your age! That is why this is so important!

~Thanks everyone! Comments and/or constructive critizism (sp?) is appriciated.

This is interesting, but most of the people who read this thread will already be users...Anyway, a lot of people have their name as a username..I just think a username is a way for people to know us and our personality...And, it it a way to refer to us.

Thank you for the reminder, but you are allowed to say your first name, just not your last or age.

Default Re: An EASY way to give out personal information :(

Yes, I agree with you, I do see that a lot too! The "13" in my name doesn't mean anything, my B-day is on the 13th. But, I think it's okay if you say, "My name is .....". I think that's okay, because theres not like one person in the whole world named that.

Default Re: An EASY way to give out personal information :(

I've been thinking about that too . . . Like for example lets say your username was "Cheese1901" and 1901 was the year you were born. Of course,you could probably get a staff member too change it if it has any personal information,though . Rep If I can give you any and great thread!

I totally agree! Though most people might just take that as a random number, and not an actual birthdate, it is pretty dangerous to do

Good point of how easy it is to give out personal information unintentionally. Thanks for reminding everyone to think about safety.

Although I can see where the impression of giving out numbers may look like personal information.. most sites that I have been on require you to place numbers and letters in the user names.. but I do see where your ideas may make us think twice; before using dates/years of our births..

Great topic of discussion.. and awareness
