I wasn't really around when surge of chat rooms and forums was around being a 2000s baby and all and it kinda makes me sad I've looked into more recently for some (this one included) and from what I've gathered I feel like it's a dying breed type of thing? I'm on e-chat and it's bone dry nowadays I guess I understand why since social media is A LOT more popular (and a little more convenient) but I think I enjoy the older format a lot more than just social media feeds sometimes??? Too bad it's dying out. (Side note: Did anyone else play anything like Webkinz, Club penguin, or petpark back in the day???)
This topic is from another forum site, so I suppose there can be a topic about it here, too. Ookla speed test is for measuring your download and upload speeds, and ping, and rating your ISP. It is at www.speedtest.net The upload/download is measured in megabits (Mb). 1 Mb = 0.125 megabytes (MB), so 1 MB = 8 Mb. The ping is in milliseconds. 1,000 milliseconds = 1 second. Then you paste the image url here and compare speeds, for fun. (: If for privacy reasons you don't want your country or cities or ISP to be shown, you can just type the download, upload, ping and grade results. here's mine:
Internet Safety is always an important thing to have, and its not really all that difficult, it all has to do with your own choices. First off, the number one thing that you should never ever do, is post personal information. Usually a first name is okay, but don't give out your full address,name, or even school as these can help people find you. There are a lot of creepy people on the internet. Another thing is content you post, unless you want to exploit yourself then you should never do things like post pictures of you doing stupid stuff, or things of your friends doing stupid stuff. believe it or not, this can actually affect your career in the future. Bosses for big corporations like to find all the info they can of their employees, usually so they can find out your habits and behaviors to see if you are suitable for the job. Links to sites are another major thing, if you know, or suspect a link has things like viruses, malware or adult content, you're better off just not posting it for anybody to click on, as this is an easy way to spread a virus. Most of this boils down to pure common sense, this is a site with many different age groups, mostly kids, so it needs to be as "age appropriate" as possible. Summary: things not to do: Post illegal/inappropriate content Personal information/data Pictures of yourself doing dumb things Bad links (viruses, Personal Advertisements in topics are annoying to) Things to do: Use common sense Pause before posting (think twice, or maybe three times) Keep things to yourself if needed. Put personal web adverts in your "About Me" or your signature.
