Danger on Duo.

Hi. Recently I put up a post that asked people if they went to my school. The point of this was to meet people who went to my school and create a tiny study group. An amazing user pointed out that this would let other users know where I was and if anybody from my school responded then that could put them in danger. The point of this is to stay safe. Don't post things that give away your location too closely, like you can have the city or state or town you live in but don't put your direct address on your profile, and don't give away your email or phone. It's a bad idea. Stay safe, XSuperWomanX

And you shouldn't give out your age, email address, phone number, grade (if you're still in school), ZIP code, home address, or anything like that either.

That's a zip code. In Britain we call it postcode.

Thanks for your advice! Anyway people already know about this. If you read the guidelines, then you will understand ALL the issues that should not be created.

Yes but some people just skip through the guidelines and don't read them.

You are right. I am happy to see that a newly joined person is well aware of certain things...!!

I myself skipped the guidelines, I thought it was enough to be sensible in the forums. However, as I see they're not too long, I am going to read them just in case ;)
