We want all members to consider carefully when creating posts on this forum which include personal information, that the forum posts themselves are public.
This means any member of the public can access the forum and look at the forum posts without creating a username.
This is why we always recommend members to never put any contact details in the forum posts. Or indeed any personal information about yourself that you are not happy being public.
Your profiles remain private which is why we encourage members to place their kik, skype info etc within their profiles to avoid outside unwanted attention.
It is obviously your decision at the end of the day however we do wish to remind you of the obvious risks.
