Of all the sites kids go on these days I would say this is one NOT to worry about.

It's also not possible because if you want to background check everyone 18 [since you can't for those under 18] you'd have to actually know who is over 18. There is always a possibility that someone wasn't honest about their age, for example, a younger member saying they are older, older member saying they are younger. It's just too difficult of a task, and I'm sure that not everyone is willing to be honest to have it done. It's a sad, sad fact, but true.
You just need to stay safe and report anyone who asks for info like that.

the best thing to keep yourself safe is to not share any personal info about yourself. Like last name, address, phone number, email, etc. do that and you will as safe as you can be.

My parents are extremely cautious about sites I'm allowed to join. To assure them of WI, I shouwed them the lsit of mods and admins along with the rules and FAQs. Maybe this can assure your parents too!

If they started checking people's backgrounds, I'd quit this site in a heartbeat, and I'm sure a lot of teens can back me up on the fact that they would too.. The admins of WI have no right to do that, maybe show your parents around a little bit? I agree with Jennielou.

Well, I don't think it'd be fair to completely close off people who want to start. We want our community to grow and more people to learn about webkinz and that could not be fair for them not to be allowed to join.

I also don't think people under the age of 18 are allowed to get background checked because I think that'd give WI more personal information. Now I KNOW they wouldn't do anything to give it out, they would keep it secure but, i'd rather not give out mine.

My parents get iffy about me being on WI and stuff thinking i'll get kidnapped... but you just have to remember how hard the staff tries to keep you safe. The staff can only do so much though, you have to pull through and NOT give out personal information.

Well, for mods & admins, the security check is important, but for regular members, we shouldn't be giving out our identity in the first place!

So, "middle school aged Bob" shouldn't be telling us that he's "middle school aged" anyways.
I believe you can't post your age unless your 18 or older, but I suggest (for people that are confused), checking out this thread:

It would feel very safe after doing the check, I agree. But how long it would take and how you would do it is something you should put some thought in to. I also agree that it sometimes is unsafe to be chatting, but almost impossible to make so that no bad people are allowed.
But I have to say that the idea was pretty nifty!
