Thanks for the great reminder! There are so many ways to give out personal info...thanks for reminding us of this one. Maybe when a new member is registering, then there should be a little reminder for them not to include personal info in their username?

That is a good point (there is a way to change it you have to ask a Admin. and have a REALLY good reason and you can only do it once)

Ive never thought of that, so I dont think its that big of a deal. If my username was cool_bee2003, it doesnt mean thats when I was born, maybe it was when my cat was born, or maybe I just like how it rhymes! Just saying, its not always necessarily your birth year

Just so you all know, I was NOT born in 2009. It is the year I joined WI. But you're right, you shouldn't give out your age in any way.

Thanks everyone! Always be careful when making a username for an online forum. Remember: no personal info.

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

Good reminder! I wish people could read this right before they create their username. I have seen so many people who pretty much just give away their age, like if I was doing my cat - Indy2001. People who do this tell me their age by doing this and it makes me uncomfortable to say the least. I totally understand people who just put their lucky number or their month and date birthday, but the year is dangerous. Thanks so much for posting this.

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.
I agree. My user name doesn't give any info away, including the numbers. Thanks for posting! I hope that a lot of non members see this before they join.
