I'm not the official name safety judge, but it sounds good to me. Even first names (i think) are ok. Just as long as there is no other personal info there. Like my WI username, Emloveswebkins. My dad made my account for me. Em is the first two letters of my first name, Emily. So yeah you are good i think

I have seen some like that too, and I am hoping for the best! It is bad, and I hope that ganz will be able to change that for them!

They are obviously not being safe on the web! There is not a lot of threads like this, but they DEFINETLY need to notify Ganz. Thanks for giving our new members and members who need to learn a heads up!

Ganz had those apps where you could change username and such...but too bad the programmers are to L@ZY to use it

Everyone needs to be very careful when creating 'profile' names, because this can be an issue of giving out too much information.
The only suggestion I have, if caught EARLY enough, is to stop using the account in question and create a new account. In Webkinz, you do not necessarily get to use the KinzChat Plus feature unless you have a parents permission, so even though you've used something revealing as your profile name, it's hard to "give" the rest of the information. However, if you have an account here in WI... and are telling people your WW ID also, then you may be passing along a bit more info then is wise.
Thsi is a great reminder for all... and something I am sure not a lot of people think about when creating their accounts. Thanks for bringing it up.

I disagree.

My brothers username gave his first and last name, and he had to change it.

I have also had to change my username, but because I was hacked.
