PostSubject: Online Safety. *PLEASE READ!*   Sat Feb 07, 2009 10:30 am

I just want to make sure our members are safe. So I am posting these reminders on how to stay safe on the internet. I know your parents have probably told you about these rules before, and you have heard them ovr and over, but I just want to be sure everyone knows.


STAYING SAFE ON INTERNET... RULE 1

NEVER post your address or city. Or anything that would help people find out your city. (Like the name of a local store or resturaunt, or what school you go to)


RULE 2

Do not post your age or grade. Although this seems harmless, every little thing can help a creeper. (See bottom of post)


RULE 3

Do not post your school name, it can help people find your city.

RULE 4

DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT post a picture of yourself! That is the dumbest thing you could do! Rolling Eyes

RULE 5

Don't post your phone number, email adress, etc


If somebody asks you for this information/ gives you this information, PLEASE inform us ASAP!


What CAN you do?

You can post your first name, and your state.



Now, here is an example on how NOT doing these things could go wrong.


Okay, let's say your username is Jujubee050. You join KVF, and start posting away and making new friends. You come across the WTC. You begin to introduce yourself by saying: "Hi there! My name is Jane Jumpybean. I live in Atlanta, Georgia. I love the color purple and jujubee candies! Meanwhile, this creeper stalker dude (let's call him Phil) Phil wants to kidnap a little kid. Where's a better place to find someone to kidnap than on the internet, right? So what do kids enjoy? Webkinz! So Phil makes an account called Phil the Horn boy. Phil PMs you and begins to persuade you into being his friend. You kindly accept, and begin to talk to phil. Phil sees your post on the WTC. Then, on another thread about school, you post that you go to Lemon Jr. Highschool and you are 13. Perfect. Then, on another thread, you post that your hair is black and wavy, and that you are 5'6. So, now all Phil has to do is go to Atlanta, go to Lemon Jr High, look for the girl about 5'6 with black wavy hair named Jane Jumpybean, follow her home, throw a bag over your face and well there you have it.

As long as you don't post the other stuff you are okay Very Happy

Because some sites allow you to post that which is really stupid. I can't figure out a way to gte rid of it.

That's right, fuzzypenguin. But a lot of people have the birthday, like August 7th for example. But no year. Smile

Great thread! It'll really help some people
If someone makes you feel
uncomfortable, you need to inform someone.
Whether it be a mod or and adult.
I would notify an adult and then tell a mod.

Good reminder!

Nice job. I'm really glad you made a thread like this. We can never be too safe, and you can never really tell who you are talking to. Better to just be safe.

Okay. The profile thing asked me for my birthday, AIM, email, and a bunch of stuff. Should I delete all of that info?
