Hey guys, i have been on WI for a while and i think a great addition would be a teen and above section! there are lots of teens on WI, and i have several friends who support this idea.
In this section, it would mainly be chatting, like the DCT. On the normal DCT we have to keep topics that are appropriate for 8 year olds, and there are some things that we like to talk about that are perfectly fine and appropriate for 13 or 14 year olds to talk about, but not 8 or 9 year olds. We wouldn't use bad language, but maybe the topics could be a little looser and we could have even a part where we could debate about stuff. You would have to be approved, just like how only gifted can see the gifted area, by having your birthdate when you apply show you are at least 12 or 13,, or whatever the set age would be.
I know some people are worried about revealing ages, and the whole topic of age but i have thought over it and have some good points
- If you are in that section, people would know you were at least 13. However, i do not belive this is dangerous because you are still not telling your exact age. Even if you did tell your exact age, i don't believe this is dangerous because there are probably hundreds or thousands of people that are named "alex and is 14" (example)
-Lets say a 9 year old was signing up for WI, and they lied about their age and said they were 13 and because of that they were able to access the teen area. First of all, a parent should not let a 9 year old on the computer without any supervision, and should be watching the sites they join. Second, if they lie about their age just to see that that is, in my opinion, their own fault and their parents. if they lie and therefore see things that maybe a 9 year old shouldn't, then it is their own fault.
-Mods would still look over that area just as much as others, so there would be nothing that shouldn't be there that is there. like it is not appropriate to swear, so that would still be disallowed. its just that, on the DCT, sometimes we like to talk about stuff that relates to us, but it is "innapropriate" and not allowed. like i remember we wern't allowed to talk about certain incedents, such as what happened in texas at the militairy base.
i really think that this would be a good addition and would love to have your opinions on this
