Personal info displayed on this public forum


If it hasn't been already suggested to community admin, is there a way to alert forum users to not give out sensitive personal info on this public forum. It seems to be happening quite often. This forum can be viewed by anyone, including those, for lack of better words, "without good intentions". Maybe an email reminder, or pop up that disappears?

It would be fairly hard to catch all personal info with a popup, but a notice about not disclosing things like phone number, address, etc just about the post box should be fair game.

That's what I meant.. to implement a permanent or temporary reminder when visiting the community. or has it already been done?

It's already been suggested multiple times in the past and a quick search of the words "personal info on forum" brought up this thread immediately http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/holy_personal_details_batman To find your answer if it already been asked use the search bar in the top right hand corner of the screen. The idea of doing something about it is under consideration but it might be up to Get Satisfaction to implement such an idea.

It's already posted Justin. This is what it say on the koodo site when you post a question: "Ask the community a question or help others find answers. Don’t forget, don’t post any personal info." Some people don't read no matter how much you warn them. 🙂

Correct, and people that are not reading carefully that warning will be responsible for anything that will happen after, Koodo should not be taken for resposnsible! why are not you reading carefully before you click on post or reply?

People post their numbers on facebook sometimes. At the end of the day none of this is a big deal. It's just a phone number not your baking info. 🙂

true but still .. you won't want to be called at 3.00 am by some guys you don't know!

I never post my baking info. It's my secret recipe. And maybe some of us do want guys calling at 3am.

I'm so glad this might be implemented. I just read a post with what looks like a legitimate DL#. scary...

Yep, it is scary what folks will post online or send by email. I've see a lot through our business too. Always send back a reminder to not send that sort of stuff electronically.

They did have a warning at the top of where you post a question but it's not there now, I'm sure they had it unless I'm thinking about a different part of the Koodo site. They should definitely bring it I agree. I've ran into quite a few scams online lately and it will only get worse. Not a good idea to make it easy for those ppl

@justin Currently I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace on Gingerbread. I'm hoping to upgrade to a Nexus 4, but I've had some good suggestions on the forum as to other models to look into. I've spent most of my quiet time this winter looking into different tablets, and have been waiting on the Nexus 10 32GB to come back in store, but at this point I probably won't need one once Spring hits, so might wait and see if the update the model with better hardware come fall (hoping some info will come out of Google I/O). Have an Acer Chromebook coming up from the US with my parents from Florida - my nice cheap laptop. I post from my desktop, since it's easier to type and read from. I like Swype, but I don't want to have to write long posts from it, especially if it involves doing a little side research on a problem.

Cool man, I like Swype too but have u tried talk to text for those longer posts? Might save your finger from Swype-itis, lol. Btw, the Nexus 4 seems like nice upgrade. I think u can buy for just over $400 direct from google, taxes & S/H. The HTC Amaze retailed for $600 can be bought for less than $200 new and just needs unlocking. Dual core, 1.5 ghz, "amaze"ing camera spec, and built like a tank. Not sure if it'll get jelly bean though.
