    Important Notice About Meet-ups - Please Read

    Please be aware that this is an open site where you do not know who people really are and what they are here for.

    If you arrange a meet-up then make sure other people are attending as well in an open meeting place and not at someone's house unless you know them very well.

    Please be sensible about meeting a stranger from an online website and these pointers may help:

    1) Do make sure you have chatted to the person on msn or on the phone, don't arrange things simply over PMs

    2) Never go alone!!! Even if they are from the forum, at your age, it's not wise. If you were 18, then yeah your older, wiser and have some level of self awareness, but at 14/15, not very wise. Always best to meet up at a public place where there are other people around, or at least someone else you know.

    3) If someone is eager to meet you, and keeps bothering you to meet up, then there is something wrong! What's the urgency? Err on the side of caution. Maybe ask other people on the forum about that person, so you can get a second opinion, preferably someone who knows or has met that person before.

    4) Don't give your mobile phone number to anyone you're not sure about, even if they insist, especially if they are much older than you.

    5) Never give your address or home phone number to anyone!!! Period...there is no need for it!

    6) If you feel uncomfortable by someone on the forum, and it is bothering you, make sure you contact an Admin on NMP. No one should make others feel intimidated or scared.


    Please just be safe and careful ok?

    firstly id like to say i only registered here about an hour ago....yes i have tried other sites but somehow this already feels safe coz i had bad experience in a chatroom(set up for people with depression) which left me very shaken and more vunerable than i already felt

    Kazzie,

    I'm sure you have spoken to the people you have arranged to meet and know them pretty well, its more we ask you be careful if you were meeting on your own, you'll probably all have a lovely time.

    and lets see some good pics of it.
