Internet Safety Posting Do and Don'ts

Post by Alphie »

An issue came up that gave us pause for concern, and so I'm here to set a few guidelines for posting at the Lexicon. Believe me when I say that I hate having to say this as it totally makes me feel like everyone's mother, but I have to protect the users here.

Please, for you safety and that of other users, so not ever give out your real name, address, or phone number here at the lexicon. Do not ever post a photo of yourself. Be careful in what sorts of descriptions you use when describing yourself or your situation where you live.

Folks, we live in a sick world full of dangerous criminals. Twilight is just the sort of fandom a predator might become interested in simply because it attracts young teenage girls. Please be careful with the kind of information you give out! I would feel so badly if anything posted here at the lexicon ended up being used against one of the members here in a bad way. Be smart about your posts and about who you chose to be friends with on-line regardless of where you meet them. You never know what an on-line friend is like until you meet them face to face, and then it may be too late.

I have a thread else where on the site about rules and guidelines to meeting up face to face. Check it out, and again, be smart and stay safe.

Thanks Mayde and Alpphie! Sadly there are creeps everywhere, even in our beloved Lexicon.

We are working on it, it has vanished on us. This happens sometimes. We will have a new link posted shortly.

Well actually I've noticed quite a few members have been posting photos of themselves in Flight to Phoenix on the "What Character Could You Be in the Movie" thread. :? Maybe this needs to be posted up on the news blog to remind everyone.

Would the safety risk be lowered if the site was made so that you had to be a registered member even just to view the main forum index? Because you don't even have to be logged in to view the posts.

Sadly you never know what creeps are out there. :(
