er, is that the same as the santa tracker thing? sorry if I'm talking about something completely random

no thats norad! the portable north pole, was a website where you could input your childs name and age, and what they wanted for christmas, and you would get a video message from santa talking to your child. it was fantastic, and very very authentic, even convinced ds1 who was nearly 10. ( i think he still believes now, and he will be 11 in march)

I remember that! It was great. Bugger, can't remember the website at all either. Woe.

it was like this
but this one isn't working at the moment. Wonder if it'll be up and running nearer the time?

I have just become aware of the PNP website and have contacted both NSPCC and CEOP (The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) as well as a variety of media organisations, because I believe that people who use it should first consider the risks involved in providing personal details of a child to a website about which they essentially know nothing at all.

I know of nothing to suggest that the site is anything other than 100% legitimate - but all the same, would you give your child's name, photograph, age, sex, email ID and postal address to a stranger you had met in a pub? I doubt it - and Portable North Pole really isn't any different.

Please, please, please consider the risks involved in this sort of thing before deciding to use the service!
