    Please note: If you use your cell phone for pics in the avatar, turn off the GPS feature for photos on your phone. This applies to all social networks sites as well. (FB,Twitter, myspace) If not, the location of the pic can be tracked. It's called Geotagging.

    If you're not sure how to go about it you can check out this site: ICanStalkU.com

    This is not an ODR issue, it's a network/internet thing.

    Screen Names/Identity

    Just a reminder:
    DO NOT use any information that can identify you in these forums. If you do, a google search can link your addiction post to your name causing harm to your future activities including employment.

    Also covered in: http://www.heroin-detox.com/forum-policies/31-how-anonymous-do-you-want.html

    At times it is necessary for the administration to change a member's screen name upon request. We all understand situations change and have no problem with this..The user name will automatically change on all of your existing posts.
    However, if you have used your real or identifying name within the body of your posts, then each single post would have to be edited....(so it's best not to so in the first place)..

    Members may also want to exercise caution when posting about specific situations that could identify them.
    Example: Your husband gets arrested for being drunk while hanging off the arm of the Statue of Liberty. You may want to post something more general such as.."My family member got arrested while drunk and was charged with public nuisance."

    After all...it is a public and world wide forum.
