Just cause some old fart comes barging in with tales of "when I was your age" doesnt mean you have to acknowledge it.

If you know I am going to ignore it then what is the point of posting?

We don't know of you'll ignore it tho, and you might find it useful. Like your thread wanting to know why adults have a "holier an thou" kind of attitude. Seemed like something you'd want to get an adults opinion on since we'd likely know more about that than other teens... But, I was wrong Tongue

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I was really asking other teens if they know why, never expected adults to care.

RE: A thread that only allows teens in.
If you did decide to make a private Teen section I'd certainly go with Ato and FT to mod. They've been here a long time, have their heads on straight and the trust is already there.

My thoughts:

Mod-overwatch: Make two (definitely not one though, you need more than one eye in charge.) teens THAT YOU TRUST be mods of that section, and have them over-see the goings on in it. That eliminates the load that the official mods need to do regarding keeping a watch, and implementing such a feature isn't that difficult (considering that people are easily able to be added and removed as mods in the Mafia section.) Now, the teens would HAVE to be trustworthy for you to even attempt this, but it does assure security, whilst having a managing force in there enforcing the rules.

Screening: This can be handled by the two teens themselves. I have a few ideas as to how it might be possible, but they do have flaws in and of themselves. I'll see if I can come up with something a little more concrete there.

Essentially, let two teens run the section according to the rules that the forum has established. Their main job is to oversee that the rules are being kept. And f they aren't they can PM one of the official FT to step in. That way, adults don't have to get involved unless absolutely necessary.

Again, just a few thoughts.

I have a couple reasons why that would not fly but don't want to open that can of worms here.

Anytime you are wanting to practice scolding, I am more than happy to help. For the child's sake.

If you could PM me the concerns, I would be more than happy to address them, or edit my stance/ideas to see if there is a solution we can reach.

Its no secret that I am defensive of the teen section (partly because I view it as my one contribution to the forum, and its admittedly not a good one), but it breaks my heart knowing that there might be some teens that are discouraged to post in there because adults keep posting in it regardless. It currently is not living up the what I had wanted it to be, which was a section to help teens with problems that they only feel comfortable with other teens.

I am hoping for it too!

The summer after next, I am probably visiting California. This Summer, I might tag along with my friend to visit MIT.
