Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

And the winners are…

Well the contest is over and it was better than I could have imagined!!  Me got so many entries  – me was not expecting that, let me tell you!! No way! But Miss Narrator and I read every single one, yes we did!
The first thing I’ll say is that there were so many awesome and really smart online safety tips, Ditto was very happy with how safe you all are!! By far the most popular tip was one of the most important – don’t share your personal information, like name, age, address, or phone number! It sounds like everybody has that rule memorized, and that’s good, because it’s so important! There were a lot of people who said to make sure your virus and spyware protection software was up to date as well, which is also very important as a safety tip, I hope everyone is doing that! I know I am!

So on to the winners!! I’ll do the twelve random drawing winners first – I made sure that each person only had ONE entry, as per the rules, and I used a completely blind random number lottery to choose these twelve winning entries, so here they are in no particular order…

1. Alexander Nightflame
2. Luke GoldHorn
3. Jacob
4. Natalie
5. Ashley Spiritweaver
6. Nicholas Soulglade
7. Mother MistShard
8. David
9. Shateek
10. Dave B
11. Junior
12. Jen

And for the GRAND FINALE!! The three top tips as chosen by Ditto and Miss Narrator! This was a tough selection process, it really was, but these are the three that we felt represented the top answers, here in no particular order:

Kayla Emeraldheart
Hi Ditto 🙂 my safety tip is to always tell my mom or dad if I see something on the internet that makes me uncomfortable or I feel is wrong.

Keene
Don’t download anything without asking your parents first, some programs can contain spyware to hack into your computer and find personal information!

Nicole Darkwhisper
Don’t EVER try and meet someone in real life that you talk to online that you don’t know!!

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone who entered! A big super duper EXTRA thanks to the amazing folks at KingsIsle for putting this wonderful and amazing contest together, too – it was a lot of fun!  All the prize codes have already been emailed to the winners, and the prize codes can be redeemed at http://wizard101.com

Until next time, keep playing safe!!

    First, congrats to all the winners.

    Ditto, this is a safety tip that I just had happen to me. If you get an email from someone that says you have to download an attachment (especially a zip file) DON’T do it. Contact the source first and make sure that they really sent you the email. I had a virus come that way and almost opened the attachment.

    See you in the Spiral!
