Default Profile pictures are NOT personal pictures of yourself

**I apologize if there's already a thread like this. I haven't seen one, but that doesn't mean there isn't **

Profile pictures are just graphics. Like a cute little graphic you'd put in your avatar It's not a personal picture of yourself. Please do not put one, for it could be dangerous!

Thanks for reading.

**I'm not sure if you can put a personal picture as your profile pic if your over 18, if anyone knows for sure, can post saying so. **

Great reminder! (:
There are too many people out there just waiting for someone who doesn't know better to do stuff like that, and people can mistake profile picture for meaning that because of sites like myspace and facebook. I would hate to see someone make a mistake like that.

Thanks for posting this! There was a thread like this a while back and like I said, this blurb should be changed to say "A picture that expresses things you like or are interested in."

Default Re: Profile pictures are NOT personal pictures of yourself

Thank you for posting this. At one point, by default the description of a profile pic was "A tiny picture of yourself" or something along that line but I think that may have been changed.
Also, if you are over the age of 18 you still can not post a picture of yourself.

Default Re: Profile pictures are NOT personal pictures of yourself

I'm glad you brought this up! Someone can easily figure out who you are, just by looking at your picture. This could be a potentially dangerous problem for you, especially if somebody finds out who you are. A giant safety hazard for all of us members, even the adult ones. We definitely don't want WI to turn into an unsafe place, or somewhere like my space, where younger kids might not feel as comfortable. Have a re****l night!

Default Re: Profile pictures are NOT personal pictures of yourself

Yeah, you don't want to put your picture on there! I know it does say 'A profile picture is a personal picture of yourself.' or something like that but it's not on !
It can be really scary having people know what you look like, stay safe!

Rep! It should be reworded too "Post a picture like you'd use for your avatar,nothing personal" or something like that.
