this isn't a complaint, this is more of an idea.
i mean recently we were granted with the option to choose which sex we want to exclusively get our answers from. this had to be a triumph for all of us as i'm pretty sure that in the last five years on this site i wasn't the only member who felt annoyed when asking a question aiming towards females and male members would answer, likewise when asked a question aiming at males and still getting answers from female members. so this to me made this site go from being worth 1,000$ to 10,000$ (just a random estimate).
anyways getting to the point i think we should also have the option to choose what age group we want to get our answers from. i thought abou this because in the past i've asked few mature oriented questions hoping to get answers from the older and experienced members just to end up in deception after receiving answers from the teen members. you know a perfect example of this would be like asking a question like...
"what is the best age to be a parent?"
obviously i pretty positive that anyone who ask a question like this would not want to have underage members answering this. but that is just one example and i can write a whole book on this when it comes to more example, which obviously that is not what i'm here for.
but anyways, who else is with me?
- we should choose the age group we want to hear our answers fromVote A
- this is a horrifying idea!Vote B
and for those of you that took this personal and got offended by it i would like to say sorry. but then again this was just an idea that i had, i wasn't trying to target anybody

I think it's a great idea. Sometimes the teens here can provide decent answers, but realistically, they don't have the life experience to be able to provide valuable advice on more mature topics. I thinkthink the example you gave is kind of weak, though.
Personally, I find it a bit annoying sometimes sifting through a bunch of answers from teens on subject matter they just can't understand.2

Hi, I am sort of with you here, it is a vexed question in some respects. Let me tell you where I am coming from. I happen to be a Teacher, a lively 58 years of age, I have bought up 5 Children, and they are all on the upward path in their chosen professions. I like this forum because it gives me a better insight as to the thinking of people who, in many cases, are of the age-group I lecture to. I do not respond to so many questions but, when I do see someone confused or distressed, I will give them my opinion even if that is perhaps not what they really wanted to hear. Just basic honesty and experience. I take your point here but is there not a danger that someone who is dazed and confused may seek advice from an age group that is equally dazed and confused? Just a thought. Perhaps a "Preferred Audience" would be better, but keep the question in the whole domain? Cheers.1
