Yes, but they are adults and not under coppa law. If you are 13 or over then it does not apply to you. They are allowed to do that! I don't mind it and I certainly don't have a problem with it.

Yes Emma is correct. The Coppa Law is why all of this is not allowed. So techinically if you are over 13 you could post a lot of info about yourself, but this site has RULES that you CANT do that, which is really smart. I don't see how someone can track you down because of your grade, but definately don't give too much information out, or they WILL track you down. How many predators are lurking on a Webkinz Forum? Probably slim to none, but you NEVER know!

i agree with u about giving out personal info it should stop-but being peranoid about your 1ST NAME.......nobody can track you down by just your first name or your state because chances are there are more then 1 person in the same state as you with the same name. now if you give out your full name,street address, state country zip code etc. then thats a different story.

Also, if you give out too much information people might hack your account using that information! That's happened to me before!

Yes 1st name is dangerous. There may b more than 1 person, but it narrows it down 2 less people 4 the online predators.

its actually easier than you realize, every message you send on internet originates from a computer which has an address, predators know how to track that address to a general area, and they can also monitor other messages being sent, that is why it is so important to never give personal info. simply by saying your in fourth grade makes you a target, then they will "watch" you and can find out alot, like personally i get on my space and some childrens sites, and some school sites, those can tell people which school i attend and im sure they can find my name somewhere, then they really can find you

Personally, I won't like to give out my personal info, it's really dangerous you know.

But if you're older than 18 you can post your age.
