Although the teenagers have a fresh approach on life and sound advice at times, I think it would help if GAG separated everyone by age group. You'd be able to choose to throw a question out to the 18-24 and under 18 crowd if you want to, but otherwise you'd only get advice from people in your age range. What do you think?
I agree to an extent, but sometimes, and all depending on the topic, it's cool to get a younger view on things. rarely do I take it with much credence, but I'm ok to hear it. If I ask a relationship or dating question, I'm really only interested in what the 25 and up crowd thinks because I'm not dating anyone younger than that, but I certainly don't mind hearing an opinion. A girl left a comment for me the other night and I couldn't believe she was under 18 because it sounded like really good advice!!! I was shocked!!
People just put preferred age ranges in their topic title I think. Plus honestly, older people with more experience tend to be better off giving the advice a lot of the time. I don't think segregating things is worth it.
No, because 18 and under get on here to ask people older than them questions and I have a feeling if you cut that off from them and left them to their own devices they wouldn't get any answers. It's like in highschool when you'd ask your guy friend something and their answer would be I don't know dude what do you think...
No not a good idea in my opinion. The help comes from all the age ranges of people here. Which is evident by the most helpful choices. In most cases anyway. And sometimes the experience of us older farts is what younger people need to hear. Although I also believe us old farts get the the same reaction as some of the younger members parents do. Just a rolling of the eyes. LOL!
But then on the other hand, there are times when I read a question. and my first thought is "My lord. How can you not know that?"
Keep it the way it is. Besides it gives people the freedom to choose which questions to answer.
I think being able to get advice from people at different stages of life is really helpful--and I'd hate to see some of the under-18s, for example, getting answers only from their peers. That way lies madness (and terrible advice).
I agree. And make it impossible for people 18 and over to contact or answer questions by people under 18 because some men here (I haven't seen women do it) can't help but be pervy no matter the age. They can call it Kids Korner or something I don't know LOL!!!
i think i'm too immature to be in the age range i'm in. irl i don't usually tell my real age. people assume i'm 18 - 21 and the way i act and talk is apparently ok for that age range but not for someone over 25. the people who find out my real age are shocked and dismayed. so no, i don't think i'm where i should be and therefore i don't want to be expected to be something i'm not.
That's a horrible idea. When you're asking for advice, it's best to get it from a variety of people with a variety of experiences. Its like saying a 17 year old can't give advice to someone 25, and a 25 year old can't give advice to someone 30. Why? That's just... plainly, stupid.
No, I do not agree at all. No matter the age people on here get and give great advice no matter how old they are. Age doesn't define that, maturity does. Someone under 18 gave me great advice and i couldn't believe they was that young so, no disagree! no matter the age people still give good advice.
