It might not be possible. I mean my parents are strict about the internet and I doubt they'd even let me give my FIRST name to Justin or Wendy. Instead of putting the load on WI we could all take extra precautions when we're talking and except a friend request. I usually don't accept a friend unless they put something on my profile like:
Quote:
Hi! Wanna be friends?

It wouldn't be possible to Background check most members of WI...One of the reasons staff have to be 18 or older is because they are background checked, and you can not ask anyone under 18 for personal information [that would be needed for checking] online.

As long as you don't release any information about yourself, WI is completley safe...Tell your parents that

Completely Agree, Vincy!
It would be illegal and WAY to costly to background check the members Of WI under 18........

Then If they asked for Personal Info (Staff) For the Background check some parent could shut this site down in a heartbeat.

If any member asks you for personal information in a pm, please forward it to a staff member and we will take care of that member. If you see someone asking for it on the forum, then flag the post and the staff will take care of it. We have it in the rules about no sharing personal information and that is for you safety. If I come across a post that says Bob is in middle school it would look like this : Bob is removed. We edit out schools, ages, anything that would be personal information about them.

Yeah, like close the application page until every current member (well, at least the active members) are checked out.

I am sorry, but that is physically impossible to be done.
People join WI 24/7!
Assure your parents that WI is safe, I am sure the mods think so, and they know best.

Seems like the best way to assure your parents that everything is safe here is to hve them look around.

You never know they may get hooked onn WI too I'm a parent and I am definately hooked! I let my kids come on, but I must say that I do keep an I on them when they browse. Not because I don't think it's safe, just to make sure they are making good posts

I think this could be impossible, but maybe not for new members. I know that not all the members of WI are active, so if you narrow it down to those over 18 and that are active, there are probably a lot less people to "investigate."
