So, I have a wikia that centers around ORGs (Online Reality Games) that are hosted within the ORG community. As part of the wikia, each person who has ever played has their own page. All that is usually on the page is information regarding their experience within the game itself (such as who they played and what games they played in). However, I have allowed those who wish to add additional information that they've specifically asked to be on there. Here's my own personal page on the wikia. Here's the page of someone who has absolutely the bare essentials. The information you see on theirs is a generic default photo used for all pages as a placeholder. Some have requested to have their own photo up (like myself). The images on the side are games of mine they've played in and who they were in them. Then it lists info like their first game of mine they were in, how many total points they've earned through playing my games and their best placing. Then it lists their name, which nobody is required to share. They're allowed to provide nicknames if they choose not to share their real and can have it changed at any time. Finally there's their "Alumni SN", which is essentially the screen name they were given FOR my games when they first joined.

So my question, I guess...is there anything here that would be against Terms of Service. I looked myself and I didn't see anything, but I'm admittedly not the brightest when it comes to legalese. lol So I'd prefer to ask in here. If something is, could you please provide what is and in detail so I can go and change things.User:Nemle22 14:16, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

I don't see why there'd be any problem with what you're doing. The terms of use prohibit you to "Solicit personal information from any user under the age of 18;" - but you're clearly not doing this, as the info is voluntarily added. -- RandomTime 18:19, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
P.S. I posted this in the general area as well, before realizing there was a support area. —This unsigned comment is by Nemle22 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
No need to post it twice, we can see it here -- RandomTime 18:29, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
My bad. :-X I thought 1 was for support staff only and the other for members only. If I may ask, are you member or staff? —This unsigned comment is by Nemle22 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
I'm a community volunteer, not staff. These forums are normally answered by the community (although staff chime in from time to time) - if you want a staff reply you can send a message to Special:Contact, I doubt they'll say anything different to what I've said -- RandomTime 18:37, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
Awesome! I only asked so I'd know what to say when asked myself. :PUser:Nemle22 14:41, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
