Great minds think alike! I had thought of asking this question myself some time ago =)
I think it's definitely necessary, I also think it's also necessary that they don't have access to the sexuality section. The thought of 13-year-olds getting some ideas from what people post there... *shudder*
That would be a good idea. Between the ages of 1 and 18, every year is a huge gap. Now that 13-year-olds are allowed on GAG, they are treated on a par with kids 4 or almost 5 years older than them, while being in a completely different developmental stage. If such a category was added, it would allow answerers to adjust their answers to the askers.
I think that's a good idea, at least so I can think about what kind of answer I'm going to give them. I also agree with people who said they should have their age listed. I remember on the old site, you could hover over the user's name and their age would often be listed in the box. Maybe we could bring that back?
I dont hink so unless hey take out the sexual topic or just banned them for it. Kids are naive and innocent. They dont need to see the thigs some of these people post on here. Thats how you get 12 year old whore on maury..
I can see the use for it, but I'd say that when a user under the age of 16 posts a question its quite obvious through either the topic or content of the actual question (At least its obvious to me) which makes another age bracket unnecessary.
It's not a bad idea and while we are on the topic adding a age lock for those under age 18 for sexual content would be a good idea. I shudder to think of what ideas kids ages 13-16 would get from this site when it comes to some of the only adults should be seeing.
