Staying Safe Online
« on: August 22, 2017, 11:27 PM »
Hey guys.

Just wanted to make an announcement about trusting strangers/other members or just basically anyone online. Of course, don't be completely scared to make friends. You can form lots of good friendships on sploder. But just remember that a lot of people on the forums aren't looking to date or form actual relationships. While we can't regulate online dating on the forums, I'd like to make an announcement regarding that.

There's no real solid way to confirm whether someone on the internet is who they say they are. That could even be them hiding their true personality. Protect yourself by understanding the risks of sharing information and such to your friends. A lot of you are going through puberty so you can easily mistake friendly feelings as feelings towards someone, especially if they're of the opposite gender, so please make sure that if you're 'flirting' with someone that the feeling is mutual and you aren't making them uncomfortable.

Just because a girl is talking to you doesn't mean they're into you. I know some girls have their own little fangroups of boys who are fond of them.

& i'd like to restate one more time that the people you're talking to online might not be real or even real WITH you. It isn't hard to lie to a face you cannot see.

Also just because someone shows their face and there's no mistaking it's theirs, it doesn't mean that they are as who they act they are. There's been quite some cases of people only being nice to achieve a goal, or turned out to be a little crazy, people that lie a lot, etc.

Form friendships, but without revealing personal information all willynilly. Feel free to trust, but always have 1% that's wary.

I know you guys don't make announcements like this out of the blue, so something must have happened.

I have encountered this quite a lot on my time in sploder. It can get annoying. I just want to make friends and some people just want to flirt. It can make me a little uncomfortable. Then again they could have been joking Its happened like.. Hm, 5 or 6 times in the last year? :/ Thank you for posting this announcement

It's probably because Bolsillos made a thread about how he hates people thinking new members are alts right off the bat.

Not sure what you're trying to say exactly but when we think someone is an alt that's clearly not trusting what they're saying. Honestly it could be because they think we should get a reminder about this, or it's because of how most of us consider new members being alts. (Yes she probably would go deeper in the subject and add more things about trusting people in the reminder if the thread was the reason, I would too.)

Don't share your phone number, home address, and school. Doing so may cause you to be in danger. If you do end up telling where you live, the best thing to do is to move to another place.


Also, Do not reveal what you look like. When you go out, people can recognize you and do something you might not want to do. Chances are that evil people might try to hurt you. This is why I personally don't do face reveals. Unless you are a fully grown adult, revealing yourself is a big no no.
