13 Age limit
« on: June 16, 2010, 06:14:13 PM »
Sorry, still 12 here- can't remember when I signed up - am I still allowed to stay here, just read the rules. I don't find myself a large nuisance,  but can I stay?

You are. :)

The forum rules say:

Quote
2.   13 years-old is the minimum age required to become a member of community.

It's "to become", not "to be". You signed up on April 22, 2009; the new rules were adopted on February 20, 2010. The kids under the minimum age who signed before the new rules date are safe regarding the minimum age, but still must follow the rest of the rules because it's still applicable.

Or is it still needed to call an attorney? ;D

Thanks Igor :) - doesn't matter much though - I'll be 13 in about 2 months!

I had a looong text written, but you know what? It was too long :P So instead here is the short version:

Some children are fine, some not. The bad ones matter more because they break things. Hence the age requirement. Second part is laws. Laws for internet still generally kind of suck.

Anyway, we're ok with you being around (and have been before). Nothing magical happens on your 13th birthday, so... :)

Maragil, reading your posts, i am really surprised you're only 12! Nothing different from any others here. I wouldn't be surprised if you were 14, but for a 12 year old you write pretty well. You even research the net quit well and post your sources. (I bet you even contribute to wikipedia already.)

Seems like it doesn't take a lot of years to become a real digital native.

Aren't we all children anyways?
We're just playing with bigger toys :)

Simutrans is a nice and cheap alternative to setting up a lavish and large diorama train set.
that and you have no worries of being kicked out by spouses, relatives or friends for spending so much time and money on your hobby  :P
well okay, that last part isn't always true.

Check the SImutrans Experimental page on simutrans wiki(not the tikiwiki, hasn't been exported yet). Had to reformat that whole page :)

No one is safe. What if our benevolent dictator thinks of otherwise and becomes less benevolent? ;D

Well, I will speak very frankly to you: Your posting style was causing problems; it was the basic reason for your move to here: We decided not to ban you for being below the age of 13, but rather keep you here in the Lounge for a while. :-) So no, there are no current plans to ban you, don't worry. :)

How old are you since you are "limited"?

I'm not going to get into it because it doesn't matter - you're under the age limit anyway. The long and the short of it is that you didn't pass as an adult, though. With time, you'll be okay.

How old are you since you are "limited"?

Your answer is in his last post, four posts up.

Also, "limited" is definitely not a term we would prefer. The Lounge allows for relaxed rules, so it may be a trade-off, but definitely is better than other alternatives.

I would, in general, like to somewhat discourage in-depth discussion about the subject, as it can turn unnecessarily touchy.
