I've seen usernames like this here on WI. I've seen some like (blank)1999 or (blank)1994.
Anyways Rep for you!
I didn't notice that some people can be crazy enough to give out personal information in their username.

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.
Actually, you can change your username can be changed if it reveals personal info.

Here is the link if anyone needs it.

I'm not sure how many people know that.
Take a look in the customer service section of the webkinz homepage. Ganz will change usernames if they have personal information. They will also change pet names if they have personal info or if you accidenatlly named you pet by their secret code.

Wow! Great point and great thread!! I never do that. I always do something like lucky3900 or heartlover343... Here is a "username" machine..

Pick your fave flavor of icecream: mintchip
Pick your fave color: turquoise
a random number ((NOT BIRTHDAY)): 63

And the final username is....

mintchipturquoise63
or....
mintchip_turquoise_63

You can always etch out a step too!

mint_chip63
turquoise_63

Let me know if this works!
