GoTeen.net Rules
GOTEEN.NET RULES ALL MUST FOLLOW

  • ENGLISH- All posts, threads, comments, signatures must be written in English.



  • PROFANITY- Keep offensive language to a minimum. While we might let you get away with anything you might hear on network television or ratio, don't go overboard.



  • ONLINE SAFETY- After reading about the girl on myspace who was killed, it was suggested we put up a thread here showing how to keep yourself safe on GoTeen.Net or any other site on the internet.

    The Administrators and Moderators are here to ensure that GoTeen.Net is safe from online predators. We encourage all members to report anyone who you feel might be a predator. Any predator found here will be banned, and all traces of them will be removed and they will face legal actions in their local area.

    To keep yourself out of harms way, here is a guide you should use.

    1. Keep your identity private! This is a public forum, that means anyone on the internet can access it. Avoid giving out your full name, your mailing address, your telephone number, the name of your school or anything that could personally identify you.

    2. Don't meet anyone from online! The worst thing you could do is meet someone from online. People aren't always who they say they are. If you do feel the need to meet someone, bring three or more friends/family with you. Never meet or go alone with the person! It's best to meet in a public place such as a coffee shop or mall where there are a lot of people around you.

    3. Don't reply to PM's (Private Messages), Instant Messages, Emails, chat or any other message system that makes you feel uncomfortable. If you ever get anything like this on GoTeen.Net, please contact Admin and provide details of what happened and who did it. If you can, please provide a copy of it. Actions will be taken.



  • ARE YOU UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE- GoTeen.Net does NOT allow kids on our forums that are under the age of 13 UNLESS, you are supervised by a parent or supervised by next of kin. On registration you must provide the email address of your parent or guardian. From there you will receive instructions to your parent or guardian on how to get your account approved. If approval is not received from parent or guardian in 7 days the information will be deleted. Why do we have this rule? because not only for your safety, but we also would like parents and guardians to look around the boards before allowing their children to register and communicate with older teens.
