This is a really nice idea Hollie, but unfortunately we can't encourage children to publish their contacts on an open forum due to weirdo stalker types. If you are wanting to give out your details you need to do it via PM and for younger kids get your parents approval first.
Sailed SS Australis out of Southampton 1977.Arrived October in Adelaide via Melbourne 1977.Liverpool/London 1987 - 1992

Thanx for the advice Rachiegarlo because I've got MSN
Really cool but as the moderater said it is just to risky.
Hope everything goes well when you get to Adelaide.
hi i would give you my addy but its to risky
Swap them via PM. Its just not a good idea to advertise them for everyone on the internet to see.;) Better still arrange a time and all pop into the chat room. That way no one needs to give out any personal information.
Hi kids, your friendly scarecrow here.
You may have got the impression from some of the above posts that this forum, chat room, and the PM system are safe.
The fact is, That couldn't be further from the truth.
You do not know who you are chatting to in the Chat room or when you PM someone unless you have already met them face to face.
Take me for instance.
Am I a 57 year old scarecrow ?
Am I a 20 year old woman ?
Am I a 10 year old Girl ?
You see, you just don't know who you are chatting to or sending a PM to.
Here are 5 points that should help keep you safe.
1: Keep your personal information to yourself.
2: People may not be who they say they are.
3: Don't open attachments from people you don't know.
4: Tell your Parents or someone you trust if you're chatting on line and something seems not quite right..
5: Meeting on line strangers alone is dangerous.
There are people out there who spend every waking hour collecting little bits of personal information about you.
Don't use your real name when you're on line, make one up, ask your Mum or Dad to help you think of one.
Never give out information about your family or yourself and Never tell anyone your real name, phone number, address, where you go to school or where you like to play.
Donít share pictures of yourself or your family with people you have never met.
As Django mentioned, by all means go into the chat room on this forum, but please remember the above points and stay safe.
