While forumwarz does provide me with much entertainment and a surprisingly large amount of hilarity, but I don’t know… I wouldn’t let my kids touch the stuff before they were nineteen or so.

Pointless to try to stop people from getting access to content.

It depends on the individual person anyway.

I know people who are ready <13.

I know adults who aren’t.

Meh.

i don’t know anything about raising kids. And besides, what if i said i wouldn’t care no matter how old they are, but then later in life i have kids and I don’t let them play until their older, and they somehow find this post or something, they would totally call me on it.

lol We don’t want kids but they’d never be on the net unsupervised at all **** that

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

if my kids were savvy with internet and had a warped sense of humor then probably 14-16 which is when i found most of the horrible internet things.

the only reason it took me so long to become a internet dork was because my parents were smart and kept us unplugged until school absolutely required internet access.

when my kids are smart enough to bypbum the filters i will put on my net they will be mature enough to deal with the horrors they bring upon themselves.

They could bypbum filters when they’re 8 dude. complete emotional maturity is not reached until the age of 25. Destroy the internet forever

this makes me wonder if i ****ed up my emotional intelligence by using the internet. I think my eq is somewhere around 58 Log in to see images!

The answer: yes. Go outside.

The big problem is when you get to work and you can’t deal with people face to face but have to have a computer/cellphone screen between you.

It makes me a lot happier to talk to my friends irl than over the net or phone. It’s probably responsible for the rise in depression.

Just south of sanity

Interesting question.

I don’t think i’d want my kid wasting time on the internet like I do. I’d be much happier if they had a lot of friends and were into sports etc.

I think they’d be happier too. As sad as it is when i’m banned from forumwarz I’m quite often happier and when I go to university next year I am tempted to just not return

I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

It totally depends on the kid. My niece cries at the sharks in Finding Nemo and she’s 7. When I was 7, I was watching predator and other Arnold Schwarzenegger movies.

I think 17+ is probably the “ideal” age for Forumwarz but some teens are clearly mature enough to play it at a younger age. Some people in theory 20’s probably wouldn’t like the offensive content. So age is only a loose guide.

I’d be highly suspicious of letting a 10 year old play it though.

Interesting, I took the OP’s question differently. I didn’t think he was asking “at what age would it be okay”, I thought the gist was “would you let them”. “Let”ting them implies that I sanctioned their play, and I cannot imagine a universe where I would say, “Sure, kids! Let me show you something. This is goatse. This is the pain series. What ELSE would you like to learn about today?”

If the game itself were separated from Flamebate, klans, etc., then maybe I’d let them play. But I wouldn’t want to let them near the community Log in to see images!

This. The game is fine for 17-ish IMO. But I wouldn’t like my kids seeing the stuff that is posted in RP.

Seems I misunderstood.

I guess there are some things I regret seeing like 2 girls 1 cup, or Tubgirl. So I would prefer any children of mine not see them.

Having said that, there is a lot of fun to be had around here, a lot of hilarious jokes and humor and meta-humor. I’d want them to see that, if they were interested in that kind of thing.
