Posting of Personal Information including Photographs

New Policy - Posting of Personal Information including Photographs

In order to try and protect our members and guests from unwanted attention can everyone please refrain from posting any personal information, including photographs, which could be used to identify you.

Please do not post any information including your real name, address, telephone number, school name, MySpace addresses, photos (of you or your family showing faces) or anything else uniquely specific to you.  This policy is to be applied to all forum boards.  Moderators have been instructed to remove/modify any posts which contain such information and warn the individual concerned.

Please also use caution when dealing with Xfire, MSN, Ventrilo or any other VoIP or instant messaging programs.

And just a reminder of some basic Internet safety protocols:
•   Never give out identifying information — home address, school name, telephone number or photos
•   Never arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone you “meet” on the Internet
•   Never respond to messages that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, threatening, or make you feel uncomfortable.  Please report any such message to an officer immediately (there is a ‘Report to Admin’ link at the bottom right of every PM with other forms of communication please contact and officer via PM or Vent as soon as possible).
•   Remember that people online may not be who they seem. Because you can’t see or in some cases even hear the person it would be easy for someone to misrepresent him- or herself.
•   Remember that everything you read online may not be true. Any offer that’s “too good to be true” probably is. Be careful about any offers that involve you going to a meeting, having someone visit your house, or sending money or credit-card information.

If you have any questions in relation to this policy please direct them to the officers via the Questions for Officers board.
