The moderators here on VeggieBoards have noticed a recent increase in teen members posting personal information on VeggieBoards. VeggieBoards is a public forum, which means that anyone with access to the internet can read our boards. It is not safe to post any information anywhere on the internet that would make it easy for someone to find you. That includes, but is not limited to, your last name, your hometown, your high school, places you hang out, your personal email address, your phone number, or your home address.

We would appreciate it if you refrained from posting any sort of personal information on the boards, and if you reported posts or let us know if anyone is making this information public, either about themselves or about another board member. We enjoy the contributions our teen members make to the board, but you must use the internet responsibly and safely.

Thanks for your cooperation.

I know that this is good advice for everyone, but is this post aimed mostly at teens <= 17 years old?

< technically an adult member of society (scary). has her home city in her profile.

edit to clarify: I realise this is in the teen forum. I mean that 18 & 19 years olds are both teens & adults. Do I need to edit out my home city from my profile?

Yes, we are largely more concerned about our members who are not legal adults. A hometown is also of less concern than your last name, street address, high school name, or phone number, which we wouldn't recommend our adult members posting either.

It's fine. Like Rabid_child said here:

Personal e-mail address...I sometimes post my e-mail addy on forums, but my e-mail addy is also my MSN addy. Don't know why I bother though, I'm never on...

No, thank YOU. I was wondering why someone signed on two years ago, got an avatar, then posted once saying "bhhhh".
