What do you mean by “personal”? Do you mean if we share personal infos or something?

I want to know how much of your personal do you share with everyone in the forums. Where you live, if you’re in school/work, age, etc.

I’m not really that bothered, I haven’t posted loads of personal things because I haven’t needed too but I don’t think I’d be too afraid to. Most members are friendly and trustworthy, I doubt many dodgy people would be looking on a simulator forum, but we still have to be careful ayy

Dont share any personal over the internet
You never know who is sitting on the other end of the keyboard…
For all we know, i could be a three headed monkey…
Dont forget, the internet can be:

True, I wouldn’t send my phone number or anything, maybe like the country I’m in and generalised things, nothing specific

I share some things on the forums that could be considered personal but only things like favorite airline, favorite planes, home country. No phone numbers or addresses.

I believe that a few or a couple of people on this forum are either Online Pedophiles or Trolls etc.

Recently I’ve watched a documentary that said online forums have at least 1 or more Bad people on them but you won’t even believe they are bad. That’s the thing. You gotta watch out !

I would say that I am personal in pm’s but not really in the general forum.

I’d say I’m quite private.
The only things people here know about me are:
• What’s written on my profile.
• My first name is Laurens.
• I’m seventeen years old.
• I live somewhere around Venice.

And since you joined in May of last year, you haven’t “liked” a single post on this forum…

Not very. I’ve grown more and more personal over time.

The oldest members will know my email and name 😶. I think I took down both in August or September. This isn’t an invitation to post those, though for those that may be tempted

I’m in between. I don’t post my name and deep personal info to the general open public forum. People from flight groups I’m in and in PMs know more about me.

In between - I don’t see the point of joining a public fourm and then request your profile to be hidden as some people here have done so.

You can’t hide your profile.

I share about my interest and ambitions but nothing about my social life outside IF. Usually personal information are 1 to 1 private chats and to people pretty close to me.

Like this :p Some users are sort of grayed out and can't be clicked

Those have been anonymized, they can no longer login either.
