On user's profiles if they have specified an account of email/Skype etc., then you may intact them that way. You're not supposed to ask for it on the forums.

I just had a nice bowl of mac n cheese.

No, you cannot. You can check the "contact" profile of someones page and then add them from that but you cannot ask via visitor message or PM for contact information.

No Pat, I'm not banned. I would have been banned if I posted asking BBM of other people from the forums.

No, you wouldn't have been banned, just warned. If you've been warned about contact information in the past, you would have been official warned. Beyond official warning is infractions, which get you frozen or banned. You have to be pretty bad to be banned, don't worry. It's always good to ask about something if you're not sure though.

Nope, wrong. Once you are able to PM, then you may use the PM system to request contact info. It says so in the rules

This.

My advice, be careful in who you give your IM info. Not everyone is on here for the right intentions.

This, and, it's only restricted when it becomes a problem. For example, a PM with "hey can I have your im to trade pics" is not allowed, but something like "hey do you want to chat, can I have your im info?" is. Of course, previous history is a big deciding factor as well.

I am confused now, I was told to remove from my signature my request for people to ask me for my contact details, and was threated with infractions if I didnt, yet I am still seeing lots of people with MSN/Skype.Tumblr addys, so is it allowed or not allowed?

Since everyone seems very prone to DISCUSSING the rule, how about I direct you to the actual rules?

If you have any questions concerning what you can and can not do on Virtual Teen, you may refer to our Rules and Regulations. If you have any other questions or do not understand the rules, please ask one of the Moderators/Global Moderators, or Admins.

Requesting any personal information over Virtual Teen is strictly prohibited. This is for your safety and the safety of others. This includes, but is not limited to, requesting E-Mail addresses, Yahoo, MSN, AIM, MySpace, Facebook, MyYearbook(MeetMe), Skype, Webcam, or home addresses, cell phone numbers...etc.

If you wish to contact a member outside of Virtual Teen they will have their information posted in their Contact Info section of their profiles. If it is not listed, there is a reason for it, and they obviously wish you not to contact them.
