    I am glad to hear that you took the initiative to report to mike about your concerns.

    Moonstruck, maybe you forget what it is like to be a teenager and think the world as unfair and out to get you?

    I actually think Marlea's suggestion that Mike will check here and no need to message him was far more mature than my idea of sending him a message, she was correct, he likely will check here.

    Good point there, I wasn't the easiest child to convince to back down on something. In fact I was worse!
    But hopefully by giving her a few points to keep in mind helped at least a little bit.

    Do I need to contact admin about having my account deleted or is there a way for me to do it myself?

    Indeed Moonstruck and I was the same myself, my poor mother went through hell and back with me.

    Why do you feel that way? Maybe if you discuss your concerns they can be addressed?

    I think it’s a real shame, but I do understand.

    I have one question though, If the older people on the forum block out the younger generation who are we to get information and learn from? From what I gather you’re trying to do it to filter the forum and generalising that the younger forumers aren’t as knowledgeable to interact in discussions made by the mature age group. So to speak if we are to start a thread, are we not going to get advice from people our age with the same amount of experience? Is this not a recipe for disaster? Personally I prefer to receive advice from the older age category as its usually given from past experiences, I think it is depriving us of a lot of knowledge and understanding that I enjoy learning.

    Forgive me if I have misunderstood something along the way. I suppose I will just have to have patience for 2 months.

    The changes do not effect me but I do feel for everyone that will be limited by them. The change has been made, fair enough, I can see that majority rules but I personally would prefer to find a new online community that welcomes all.

    I am not meaning to cause a scene, I will be on my way as soon as I can find out how to remove my account :)

    I think the way it works is that the adults can post wherever they like as long as they include the 15 and under crowd into their new posts. Those 15 and under cannot post on someones thread that was started by someone 15 and older.

    Sounds confusing, it really isn't. Basically, we can post in a younger persons thread but younger people cannot post on ours...unless, that is, it is in an 'open' section of the forum.

    I realize that being younger can be difficult. We weren't all born adults. Part of this measure is to protect the younger members from too harsh criticism and the possibility of predators.

    Jackof Diamonds, there are close to 23,000 registered members (I think I remember that being quoted) some of them might chose to block the under 15s, there will be a lot of people who do not. I plan not to. I am sure I am not alone in that.

    Aztec, sorry to see you move along, but you don't have to delete your account to do that. You can just stop checking here.
