If I Could Be Serious For A Minute

Here at theO, we on the staff work really hard to try to make this place fun and safe for everyone. However, there are some folks here that don't have fun on their minds.

We've been keeping you guys informed about the issue with predators coming to the site and coming back after we've banned them. I want to reiterate that it's very important that members not assist them in coming back.

There have been cases of friends of these predators giving them access to their own accounts, or worse, simply creating new accounts with the sole intent of passing them on to a predator. Now, I'm not saying these members are bad. Their hearts could definitely be in the right place to help out a friend. But when someone is a known predator (i.e. we have records of them on file soliciting other members for cybering), we cannot let that person back on this site. no matter what.

The minimum age requirement for the site is 13. Not only that, but when each and every member signs up for the site, they agree to keep all content they post, including things in the chatroom, PG or PG-13 (at maximum). That kind of stuff definitely doesn't fall in that category.

The point I'm trying to make is this: Please do not help members who have been banned get around their bans by making accounts for them or sharing yours. When you're caught, that means that all accounts associated with the banned account will also be banned. So not only will we lock them out again, you will also be locked out. It's overall just not worth it.
