    To prevent from more catastrophe in my introduction thread, I'm making this. I think it depends on the maturity, community, and topic. A ten year old shouldn't be talking about sex, mind you. But a ten year old who's mature can be talking about video games. What do you think?

    It's all personal opinion, the general accepted age is 13 on most sites.

    Judging by the average post, I'd say about 7 to use the site, about 8 to post. That might be pushing it, though.

    IMO It does matter if that 12 year old is still blur about life, But I've volunteer at an orphanage before, and know that some kids can be matured, hell even more than me, but that is quite rare.

    And I believe this Kid is one of them.

    First of all, this isn't a forum about sex, unfortunately.
    Second, there are a lot more things worse than sex that is bad for a child other than sex, like spambots and scam websites.

    Anal John is 4, so I don't see why we can't have a 12 year old here.

    I agree with Anal for this one, there is more than just sex in the internet.

    I do think cyber bullies might be a tad bit more worse than that, but again, don't freak out. It's just an example...

    The general rule of thumb is 13+ on most sites is acceptable.

    I was thinking of more like, Religion matter, Politics, Country barriers, ETC.

    Those are pretty hard hitting topics, no offence, but no one is ever matured for that.

    You might be matured, But you have little experience in life, I hope you don't have the tendency to be gullible.

    I don't think you needed to post a thread about this. Just man up.

    Well, I guess it depends on the maturity of the person, and they should probably have some good grammar as well. It's okay to be silly, but not to the point where people act just too damn stupid.

    I joined this forum when I was 11, and although I probably got off to a bad start (this is the first forum I've ever actually joined), I've learned my mistakes and fixed them as soon as I could.

    I personally don't think age has anything to do with it. Maturity, however, does.

    I'm making this topic so my introduction topic isn't overcrowded.

    Age isn't an issue. You just don't seem all too mature to me.
