This is a little privacy thing.

 

I noticed some people had some links in thier sigs that led to Google Docs. I was getting rid of a bunch of useless files in my Drive a while ago, and noticed these Docs. I would recommend not using Docs for siggy links, as I believe they can reveal your real name to anyone who has viewed the link. (if the account you used was under your real name. Otherwise, you're good, as far as I know). There are a bunch of other sites you could use.

 

That's all, thanks for coming to my TED talk.

This is a good tip. Always mind your own privacy. 

 

It's unbelievable how many real names of people I stumbled upon unwillingly. A lot of them are minors, too. Please mind your own privacy and safety. Don't ever use your real name online at all if you can.

This depends entirely on whether or not you use your name in your primary email, and if you are using your primary email for the documents. 

 

I always use my other email address when opening and sharing documents.  It is very important that opening doc links will also reveal your name so make sure you are logged in to another account or do so on your incognito tab

Definetely! The google

Definetely!

The google connected links i have i made sure they didnt collect any private information, i use forms and adjusted settings to make sure it doesnt collect emails at all.

And if you use google as your browser you can create a chrome profile with no email connected, that way if you enter into a link that requires email it will either let you know that you have to sign in before continuing or itll tell you you cant access without having your email signed in. 

You can also go incognito mode which will keep any personal information private, but i suggest the first method to be safe.

I use the forums on a chrome profile that doesnt have any email, so whenever i click a link it'll let me know that i have to sign in. If it does require email i wont proceed. 

Remember to stay safe on the internet! And keep an email without your real name for social media, the forums etc to be even safer!

A tip for those who use internet pseudonyms (i.e, invented names/nicknames), I would suggest creating a mail account using said pseudonym.

 

I made mine under my pen name and that way it's harder for links across different media to reveal irl information. It's just a safety precaution, is all.

It is good to know this, in case I ever do figure out my signature!

Thanks for keeping our backs!

FIX THE CHAT!

 

(Words of wisdom by Trainsanddragons!)

 

 

Hello. I'm Rosemeralda!

 


Starlight and Esmé, my Signature Guardians!

They may not be dragons, but you don't want to mess with them! 

Both designed by me!

 

 

In game:

My name is Rosemeralda.

I have probably seventy-ish dragons, including all three Night Lights.

Dart is my favorite Night Light.

I love all of the dragons, but my top favorites are: Sand Wraiths (My first dragon, named BlackBird), Stormcutters (Looks like my cat), Night Fury, Light Fury, Night Lights, Triple Stykes, Deathsongs, and Skrills.

Proud leader of the clan Copycat Hiccup! 
(Clan is closed off from requests, sorry.)

I mostly am seen with either a Night Light adult, purple Fireworm Queen (named Purple Magic), Deathsong, Hambanger, Triple Stryke, Stormcutter or Stormcutter Titan.

I ride whichever dragon I want to be on, at the moment.

 

I am fully against cyber bullying!

No one should be treated bad, no matter who they are! 
I am a victim of multiple cyber bullying.

Know that I am here for you, if you are a victim of cyberbullying, and you are strong!

 

 

A small list of my favorite dragon names I (mostly) came up with:

 

Firesong - Deathsong

 

Firefighter - Fire Terror

 

Purple Magic - Fireworm Queen

 

Raxtus - Razorwhip

 

Zoom Twist - Deadly Nadder

 

Spike - Deadly Nadder

 

Black Bird - Sand Wraith

 

Imagine - Titan Sand Wraith

 

Gobbles - Hobgobbler 

 

Hobbles - Hambanger

 

Schmich - Titan Stormcutter

 

Poothless - Woolly Howl

 

The Stig - Speed Stinger

 

Rock Crusher - Gronckle

 

Imoola (Pronounced eM-U-la. The double "Os" pronounced like "You" and the "I" is silent, making you say the "M") 

- Thunderdrum

 

 

 

I have a pet betta that is black, blue, and has a little red on his tail, so I named him Toothless. Toothless is a crazy little fish! He never stops moving.

He also tore his fin, so he's even more like Toothless the dragon! 

Though I wasn't thrilled when I discovered his torn fin...

 

More about me: I love cars! They are my most favorite thing on the planet! Especially the E36 318i!
I own a 318i with a manual transmission! (#savethemanuals)
My favorite car company would be MINI, and BMW second. Though I love E36s more than anything!

 

Probably out cleaning a car when you are reading this. 

I prefer car cleaning over almost everything.

I also have Build-A-Bear Light Fury and the First Release Toothless.

 

I am against hacking. 

I like to draw cars and sometimes dragons. 
I'm a bookworm. I love Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus, Trials of Apollo, and Harry Potter.

Other things I do: I computer code a little, I crochet, and I like math.

I'm on PixilArt (send me a message if you're on there and want to follow me!).

 

 

My car model list:

 

Over probably 100 MINI/Mini Coopers list

Cooper S, lots of those, Countryman, Hardtops, Convertible, Paceman, Classics, Stuffed MINI

Probably around 30-ish BMWs

First BMW: I think was my little Z8 named Bloodcell.

Two Z4s, two Z8s, one Z3, three E92 ///M3s, E39 530i TWO DOOR Coupe, E39 four door saloon, Two 502 classics (one is a tin toy), 

two E30 POLZEIs, ten E36s (maybe more, because I keep sewing/crocheting them) a stuffed E90, two 2002ti, three i3s, three i8s, an ///M8, a very pathetic 850i (I got it because it was such a pathetic excuse of an 8 Series, I loved it even though I disliked it!) two M4s, and probably more I'm forgetting.

Tons of vintage cars I find at thrift stores, and tons of Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars.

Some huge cars, some smaller.

I have two of the same Mustangs, though I modified one, and had to repaint the stipes on the other.

I mostly modify or restore some cars. Most of them though I keep stock. 
I modified a Ford (probably F150) into being my mum's truck as a gift for her.
I did paint flames on my weird but well loved Dodge wagon.

It depends on the car with modifying though. Mainly if it needs it, or if I have an idea to make it look better.

 

List of my top favorite model cars, modded and stock:

 

Stormie, my first MINI

 

Scaremeralda, my 1/18 Scale E36

 

Snow Scaremeralda, my white 1/18 Scale E36

Smally Wally, my Dodge Ram 1500

 

Ferdiand, the Porsche Off-road sports car

 

List of modified cars:

 

Herbie from the Love Bug

 

Amber the Lambor, a Lamborghini that was once yellow and had a bent in roof (honestly, she looked like a Lego dude had a roll over in her). I made her mostly teal with yellow stripes, and cool doors that open under, instead of out or over.

 

Sally, my Mustang who got silver stripes and purple accent.

 

Grape, my Dodge wagon, got new rim color, flames, and chrome handles.

 

Zoe, my Countryman got stripes like a real MINI.

 

Moonlight, originally a Mustang, but I made into a two door E39, which is rare. She also can have her shell taken apart from her chassis.

 

Rosemeralda, my E36, has foil behind her headlights (didn't know my thrift store find was a rare model that was worth WAY more than I paid for.), because she looked a little creepy without it.

 

Dodge Viper has two different paints, blue and yellow.

 

Midnight, my Z4 Coupé, got a touchup of paint on her turn signals to be orange, instead of clear.

 

Ferdinand, my Porsche I bought at a thrift store, that had no front bumper or engine cover in the back, so I made a front bumper that looks like a welded off-roading bumper, and made bars over the engine. And he has a sweet paint job all over!

Current projects:

 

Fast and Furious Dodge Challenger (I never wanted to watch the movies, because I've seen enough ads to know they are horrible to the cars) because its paint was more like a wrap, and coming off so easily, I pulled it off. My debate is whether I repaint it purple, blue, or make it into a police car, or a Taxicab. Or art car. 

 

Dodge Viper. Possibly two. Depending on if I wanted to do my other one.

 

MINI Cooper Hardtop will be getting a British Flag rooftop. Maybe a Black Jack or Silver Jack. (or both)

 

1966 Chevy Side-Step Three on a tree.

 

Two Lamborghinis.

 

Alfa Romeo race car.

 

Dodge Ram 1500 Biplane-truck

 

Probably more I'm forgetting.

 

Future project cars

 

E36 3 Series to look like my cartoon car.

 

BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition.

 

BMW M4s in Heritage Edition.

 

BMW M8 in Golden Thunder.

 

BMW M3, M4, M5, or M8 Taxicab.

 

MINI Cooper Paddy Hopkirk Edition.

 

Paddy Hopkirk's Original Mini Rally car.

 

My Mum's MINI.

 

Biplane truck with a Dodge Ram model. 

 

Art Car, Moonlight.

 

Art Car, MINI.

 

Art Car, various BMWs.

 

I have even more cars, but it would make my signature way too long.

 

 

 

Breyer horse collector!

 

I have a mix of vintage and newer models.

My favorites of my Traditional models is probably my Mare, Sundancer, and Warrior, my Morgen, and Snowman!
Added to the list: Monty the Old Timer, and Cloudjumper the miniature horse!

Favorites of Classic/Freedom Series: Cantering Mare named Winny, and show name is Hocus Pocus. She's a beautiful horse! I also have Spirit, who is one of my other favorites, along with Mercedes and Poseidon. I love all my Classics/Freedom horses.

 

Favorites of my Stablemates:

I have a lot, so hard to choose, but I love my Palomino Mare named Rose, Totilas, Painted Magic, and their foal Fifinella, Esmeralda my vintage mare, Renzo my Morgen, my trotting mare that's a strawberry Appaloosa, Cupcake the Highland pony, and finally, Midnight Cruiser.

 

 

 

 

Music lover!

 

Favorite bands:

 

Beatles

 

Boston

 

Steely Dan 

 

Imagine Dragons

 

Led Zeppelin 

 

 

 

Proud Owner of Esmeralda, the Little Bimmer!

Old BMW 318i Classic with a 5 Speed manual! 
Hoping to convert her into an EV! 
Esmé is on Instagram, known as @esmeralda_the_little_bimmer Please don't get on just to message me on Esmé's account though. I probably won't respond on there. (Happened before, so just letting it be known.)

 

Things I need to fix on Esmé:

Too many! XD

 

This is the car that I fell in love with as a little girl, and have dreamed of owning my whole life, until the wonderful day I got her as my first car!

And those that know me, know that I talk about Esmé probably more than I talk about myself!

This is the car that has helped me through tough times, and had shared joys and adventures with me!

Favorite thing about Esmé? She's a manual transmission, and Boston Green!

 

Least favorite thing about Esmé? Nothing! (Except when she breaks a semi-important part...)

 

Weirdest thing found in Esmé? Plenty! But Wasp nest in the door jam has me head scratching.

 

What's it like owning an old BMW? Fun! Obviously!

 

Are there any downsides to owning Esmé? My empty wallet is the answer...

 

Do you love Esmé more than people? I spend more time with her, but that's because I'm a weirdo with not many friends, but I don't really care, she's like a second part of me! 
 

 

 

Esmé during a scavenger hunt... (Not a happy Bimmer.)

Esmé and the Scaremés hanging out for some drone shots!

 

One of the best looking stick shifts there is!

 

 

That's all for now. Will add more to my signature later!

The best thing you can do if you are really concerned about getting your dox out in the wild, is to create different e-mail addresses for different services, and don't give the e-mail addresses any name that can be social engineered back to you. Even nicknames/online names should be avoided in many cases as long as they are unique. Don't use services like gmail or hotmail.

 

Social engineering nowadays is easy, but if something leaks or happens, you'll know exactly which website has done so, and if someone's trying to find someone else through an e-mail address called bigstinkytoot@fatfart.com that's used for only one thing, they'll have a much harder time.

Gas and Spark toasted my subject...then Treecutter ate it..

Yep, that's actually, very true, Varku. If you want to avoid being doxed, or anything, what I do/or what my mom does, is that we install a virus protection thingy on your devices, and that makes attackers harder to get into your software.

Yes and no. Antivirus software protects you from malware, but it does nothing against people doing some social engineering. There's often no need for hacking when it comes to doxing.
