So some christian movie review site posted an article that attacks us, basically. The problem is, they used screenshots of your guys messages, and didn't censor any of your infomation, so anyone reading the article can come on the site and find your guys's accounts.

 

It's against against the law to share "Online contact information" or "A screen or user name that functions as online contact information" of someone under the age of 13, according to COPPA. So basically these guys are breaking the law.

 

I already sent an email to scholastic about it, and I was hoping you guys could contact them as well so that we can try to get the article taken down.

 

Thanks

I will definetely. These guys are taking our content and blowing it up, changing the facts, and making it seem like this site is not kid-friendly, full of predators, and horrible in every way, which it is obviously not. This site has changed my life in an amazing way, and I love everyone here for it. So I'm going to send an email to Scholastic too.

I can't post the link to the article since it's against the forum rules, but yeah. :/

 

They used screenshots of happeh, verti, bengal, future, and a bunch of other people's posts and accused us of being predators.

I was the one who found it and I really don’t like how this is blowing up. I thought it was funny, a little blip on the forum radar. Some lady with a computer and a need to spout opinions is not going to cause mods to take down the forums. 

As such, if you do find the articles, please do not comment on them directly. There are already enough people doing so and it’s borderline harassment at this point.

A Christian MOVIE REVIEW website, is accusing the (Forums? Forumers? Scholastic?) for (Containing? Being? Something or other?) Predators? How did that even happen? And why? Why didn't they attack the forums of (Insert some other fandom because I'm too lazy to think of something else)? Why was the Wings of Fire Forums targeted specifically?

don't let the memories of this place die

It was posted around November and uses posts from around that time to around six months before. It appears the author used the search bar to get the results she wanted, and then tried to explain it by jumping to conclusions. Based on what I could find on her, she is an older woman, and it would stand to reason that she doesn't quite understand the context and how things are used, and/or looked stuff up on Urban Dictionary to try and understand it. 

Overall, the articles this author published are rife with out of context posts that she strings together into a false narritive. 

I want to clarify that no one here did anything wrong. You do not have to change your behavior to suit the whims of some random lady, nor should you ever. I believe we've said our piece collectively on the matter with comments on her articles, and we can't really do much ourselves as a bunch of children on a children's site. Scholastic already reached out, and I doubt they'll do much more on the issue. 

I expect a mod will talk to us soon.

tbh I'm slightly worried

 

like I know this article has an extremely slim chance of becoming popular but like

 

it went from 45 shares to 195 shares in less than 15 minutes

 

I honestly hope my parents don't catch wind of this and actually believe the utter nonsense that article is comprised of, though I guess they're far too intellectual for that. They aren't too supportive of LGBT+ and idk how they'd react.

I'm not really angry at the article itself, people can say whatever they want on the internet. What I'm upset about is that they posted your guy's usernames and even linked one of the threads, so now anyone reading the article is able to find your guys's accounts.

Okay, I found the site and posted a very thoughtful and emotionally impactful (I hope) note to them about where they went wrong in their article. I want to make a request of whoever is reading this comment: please don't post a comment spitting fire and hatred, that doesn't impact anything, if anything, adding more fuel to the fire. Trust me, I was furious upon reading that article too: "How dare they slander our names?! attempt to destroy the communities we've built!? The friendships we've forged?!" But, if you must post a comment on their site, don't make it a hate-filled one, that just proves them right. Instead, write a comment filled with optimism and understanding, take into account that this person, or people, probably have no idea what the forums are really like, tell them stories from this site, the good, and the bad, your experiences, or possibly lack thereof, of the things mentioned in the article.

If you can't find it, it's honestly probably for the best. Some of the stuff she touches on is rather... Adult, and even the tamer things she says can be triggering. Please keep that in mind if you're trying to track it down. I know a lot of you are probably dying of curiosity, but some of you aren't old enough to understand some of the stuff she touches on. 

 

Granted, I can't stop you, but please think about that. It's a look before you leap kind of thing folks. I found it funny, but others can find it upsetting.
