Oh, and a men's forum.

And a blue collar forum.

I think we should have a Christian forum, since we've had a fair number of those lately.

And don't forget the European forum.

And the seniors forum of course.

Nah. This is a place where everyone get their say. Regardless of the topic, and regardless of the demographic to which that topic appeals. Not to mention the fact that differentiating between teen and non-teen is impossible on the Internet. Even of we did make a teen forum, it wouldn't be restricted access to teens. There's no fair way to police that, and so we wouldn't police it at all, which means anyone can use it. Then there's really no point in the first place.

How bout this though.......a-squared, you start a general teen thread, in the section you think it would be most noticed by our resident teens. I'll stick it so it stays at the top. Maybe intro the thread by laying down a few "requests", such as having the older members leave this thread for the teenagers. That way you have an area for discussion that is intended for you and your peers, but that others are still "allowed" to be part of if they decide they can add some value to the conversation.

It's not like I want the forum to be segregated, but privacy was what I was aiming for. A thread would do, but I a, hesitent on the idea because it negates one of the key things I mentioned, the assurance newbies have that there posts are meant for teens only viewing.

It's like saying there is a teen thread, and while the posts maybe mostly teens, it can be viewed by anyone, not just fellow teens just might make the posts a bit less real, or teen orientated.

Now, I know for a fact that teens don't do much investigating, which is why I tried to deal with the problem of making it in a pre-existing thread. Plus, this thread, if it is made is going to deal with MANY topics, from games to stories about religion so it has no definite topic. I don't think it would go ALL of the categories on this forum site.

Also, there is no guarentee that the teens will even click on the right topic to go to the thread.

Now I am not agianst the thread being made, I'll make it, but I do have reason for making it a section, even if It is a tiny one.

It's like saying there is a teen thread, but the posts are totally public, and can be done by everybody... Kinda defeats the purpose.

Unfortunately there isn't really any way of guaranteeing a teen-only section. We would only have people's words to go on, we have no way of checking. Plus, I can't imagine that Stark, Erx and DeepThought would avoid an entire section, as I understand it they are partly liable for the contents of the forum.

Maybe if you have a thread you could get Stark to put a request, as admin, at the top of the first post asking the rest of us to leave the thread for teens.

Nah, the appropriate response is, "What? Too soon, 'dog?" Drinking Beverage

RE: Teen Forum Section?
As a teen, I hate being bitched at for having such unimportant threads..
Would be nice to have my own section to post in and not be yelled at for.

I say Yay!

I still vote that if someone criticises a thread you've posted in TTOT you should tell them to go fuck themselves Smile.

Yeah but what if she wants to complain about you? Again.

Fuck that. For every teen worth talking to, there's ten only worth the couple of bucks in recycled biologicals. Big Grin
