There's a whole lot of people on this site of all ages, with different opinions. I see how you feel, but if you don't like it, you should go to the staff for help.

Default Re: Calm down

I think the point of this thread though, is that it's not necessarily something to bother the mods about. In fact, this thread itself is not really a suggestion to them, but more of a friendly request to some members here, to just relax a bit with the whole 'I have SO outgrown that' kind of talk. Those posts are not really something to flag, they're just an opinion that could be stated in a more tolerant way. Not everything is solved with a red flag. Sometimes things can be headed off before they happen.
I would imagine that those people who say those things here, would never go into a kindergarten class (for example) and say to the kids there, "Oh my gosh, you are so immature". Of course they are. LOL Just stop and think for a moment before you post, that there are in fact kids here that are not as mature as others. That's all.

Reporting the post doesn't help.
The person could have said something not rude, but in a sense; saying they've outgrown it.
Which is going to hurt someone's feelings. But you can't flag it, because it's not rude.
This thread should be stickied.

Honey, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. If you don't like something, why bother taking time to write a whole mean post about it??

This is the way that predators work, narrowing an age range. Please flag any post with a reference to age, even if you think the age is too young to matter.

I see in no way how saying "I did that when I was five" is supposed to be dangerous.
We have all been five before.
And I don't think that's even what she meant :3.

Default Re: Calm down

when people say "oh i liked that when i was 5" or whatever...
which unfortunately i have probably done in the past just out of habit i guess

it kind of seems to me that they want some sort of superiority factor, like "oh i can secretly let my age go if people are smart enough to catch on and then i can feel more dominant because then they'll know i am older"

like using events to show how old you are if people know their dates or what not.
"oh, i bought the nintendo 64 when it first came out, and i was like 10!!"

which... it just seems stupid to me. age has nothing to do with anything on the internet.. people don't realize that different ages can get along. just because someone is younger doesn't mean they are less mature. people don't realize that

and i totally sailed off topic, whoops. but really, the final thing to get from this is:

Age doesn't matter on the internet, nor should it even be revealed for safety. It's not like being older will make you 'more powerful' or something so there is really no need to reveal or even hint at it.

Default Re: Calm down

I think this is just a friendly reminder, guys. I'm not trying to argue and I don't mewan to be rude in anyway. But it's good to have a reminder. I mean, if someone is posting like that again and again, reporting it isn't going to help. They'll either keep on or get banned. And we don't want that. So it's not hurting anything to have a reminder just letting people know that sometimes it's best to state your opinion in a nicer way, right? (:

And besides that, I think sometimes the people don't REALIZE thaty their posts come off rude or try to be mean. I've did that before and some people might not notice it without this thread. (;
