Posting of Personal Information

Post by Welshy » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:43 pm

Recently I have noticed that many of our members who are legally, whether they like it or not children are posting things like their full name and their location. These things together are NOT advisable to be posted by anyone yet alone minors.

Therefore I would like to request that our members refrain from openly posting such information on the forum. Not only is this for your safety but it also protects the forum from any action should your information be compromised.

I try and keep my personal identity online footprint small but if you've noticed anything I should know about, please let me know.

I have a very google-able name which is a problem. :/
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Always remember, anything you put on the internet about yourself can never be deleted. There is always some backup or website scraping archive somewhere with that information. Once you put it out there, it is out.
