You can't post personal information, and even if it applies to someone else I don't that their going to post it. When I post character pictures for roleplays, I have to specify "RP Character" or they never accept them.

I think kids should learn about internet safety before they start going on the internet.
or posting images of themselves, personal info or whatever.

Okay, this is the story so far.
Becky posts a picture of herself that is okay.
Melinda saves, then posts on a totally different forum, along with info about Becky.
Miley sends it (via electronic mailing to strangers all over the world
Bob gets it, then sets out to find Becky.
No where did I state that the personal info was posted on Kidz world.

saveyou: I only know three people in real life that have ever site. Two of my cousins (one who showed me last winter) and a friend from my old church. Most people on here don't know anyone else on here from RL. How are they going to take the picture and info (which they don't have) and send it out into the rest of the online world? Kids can't post personal info. I feel like what you're saying, indirectly of course, is that no one should use the internet because it's unsafe. because if you have no personal info or identification of yourself online there's no reason to use it, right?

About safety,on KW you're pretty safe, I reckon. On other boards, I couldn't tell you.
Another thing to worry about is plagiarism. In a lot of cases I've posted pictures of myself only to find out months later that someone else has my pictures as themselves on their profiles. I'm not sure how you can stop that, I think that other people can get your image from other sites, and use them here.

It can be unsafe, but only if you abuse it. Taking pictures in public places which can be defined, not such a good idea. But there's billions of people in the world, and as long as you don't give out too much information you're probably fine. I've been on here for little over a year and people that know me know a couple things - my birthday, age, name, state, and face.







Of course, there are other dangers:



Lets say Becky posts an inappropiate picture. Her friend Melinda posts it on another board., so then Melinda's friend, Miley, (Being the good sport she is) Sends it to all her friends. Now a bunch of people have seen that picture.







I know what you mean, but that kind of thing doesn't happen on KW. Before pictures make it onto the site, they have to be approved by the moderators, just like board posts, blogs, comments, videos, the like.



Okay, But let's say Miley sends out a perfectly OK picture to complete strangers, and she includes info about Becky. A stranger (Let's call him Bob) would be able to use that info in order to find Becky. 


That would then be Miley's fault. However that situation is very unlikely as we have very strong filters here and it's very hard to give out your personal information as the filters are designed to stop you from doing that. The majority of the users are aware of the rules and understand the consequences of what will happen if they evade them. Also, all users on this site are below the age of 18, I can't imagine a person below 18 actually going out and finding Becky.
