Hi everyone!!! Lately, I have been witnessing a huge problem- personal information a ton!!! This thread is to remind everyone that no personal information will be allowed on the forum, profiles, and Private Messages.
Personal Info No-no's!!!
- NO ages!!! (You are only allowed to say your age if you are over the age of 18, but it is not encouraged that you do so)
- NO last names!! (Even if you and someone are talking about someone you both know, don't post the last name of them)
- NO city name!! (You may post your state, but never post your city!)
- NO phone numbers!! (This is common sense everyone!!! Please don't post your phone number or email address!!)
- NO personal photos!! (That means no family photos, friends and you hanging out, or photos of you individually!!)
Lately many members have been posting pictures of themselves and using Paint to scribble out their faces. This is against the rules, and if you ever see someone do this please report them!!!!
Since most kids have started school again, many have been making back to school threads people begin to post school names, ages, and grades, etc! This is also not allowed and if you ever see this happen, please report it!
Remember everyone, this is a website, you never know who is there to harm you or pretend to be a friend!!! Please in order to keep your identity safe, NO PERSONAL INFORMATION!!!!
The moderators are strict about it on their own quite honestly. You said you see it "a lot" but really it's not that often as the mods remove it almost immediately. People know they can't give out personal information but a reminder is always good for people.
Thanks for posting! Unfortunately, most of these reminder threads end up closed... there was a really great (and detailed) one last week that ended up closed.
The most important thing to remember though, is that if you see anyone posting ANY personal information - age, school level, school name, their team name, their own name (first OR last), city, state, zip, phone, email, usernames on other websites, etc. - FLAG IT immediately. Leave a note for the mod so they know WHY you're flagging it. If it's a really long post, tell the mod where to find whatever info needs editing. (ie: She posted her age in the last sentence of the first paragraph. Thanks mods!)
The mods cannot read every single post on every single thread in real time. So they depend on us flagging posts to help them find and remove any inappropriate or indentifying info that gets posted. Don't be afraid to flag anything you think is "too personal" or otherwise inappropriate for WI.
