Sure, it seems okay, but predators are smart.

Oh! And Mama Girl NH, if you feel your username is bad or in a way dangerous to you, you can change it. I won't post how because people would start using it as a free way to change.

And rep to you, elmoloveswebkins, for making an excellent thread with an excellent point!
Actually, you ask GANZ if you can change it, then they either give you the go-ahead, of they ignore it.

Yeah, Ganz is usually good about changing usernames to take out personal info, especially if it's something like the example you put. You can always email or call them about it, and they will most likely respond soon. (: REP to you for posting about this.

I've noticed that you can learn a lot of personal info about someone from their username. I sometimes get worried about mine, soccerkid27, but I don't think that it is too bad because I no longer play soccer, and 27 is the day of the month that I was born, could someone please tell me if you think that this is dangerous? I'd love to change it, since I don't play soccer anymore, but I would need a good reason too

I dont think it is dangerous. Lots of people play (or used to play soccer) and are born on the 27th. Mine is sheltielover1 because i love shelties (duh) and sheltielover was already taken.

Yeah, I just feel bad for the little kids that try to make an account and all the good usernames are used up so they do their name/birthday... ect.
