Bearville.com: A safe place to play online for all ages!

We know that a lot of bullying amongst teens and tweens has moved from the classroom to the online world. As Bullying Awareness Month comes to a close, we wanted to talk to one of our Bearville experts to find out how we keep Bearville, our virtual world, a safe place to play for kids of all ages.

“One of the ways we keep children safe in Bearville is with a very detailed Admin Tool, “ said Joy, Interactive OpBearations Manager, who has been involved with Bearville since it opened in 2007. “It allows us to see chat logs, trades [between players], inventory [of players’ accounts], etc. It allows us to quickly and correctly make decisions on whether or not a guest in Bearville is acting appropriately.”
