Since day one, the Sixth Nation has been a forum for ALL gamers. While the forumotion ToS suggest that all its forums are 18+ that doesnt equate well to a gaming forum where much of the target audience is a younger crowd. Through out these walls we have under age users. As the forums creater, I feel it personally my responsibility to shelter them from the things I wouldnt want my own children viewing and reading. Language aside (as there is a word filter that looks like it needs to be checked to make sure its current), there are things and posts made I am not comfortable with. This can not be made to be the forum users problem. Everyone should have the right to post as they feel as long as its with in the forum rules.

I dont want to lose sight of a forum for all gamers. As Ive said in a different post, a mature forum is all well and good until its users become senior citizens. For anything to last, it must go through multiple generations.

To help keep the froum open to all, I have made an 18+ section. Screening will be tight.
A forum has already been made so there is a place for those of you who do not feel like mixing with the younger crowd, or are more comfy in a place where you can let what ever words flow out with out worry. Its closed to everyone but those I place into the 18+ usergroup. if you want to be placed into this group, you must pm me so I know to put you in.
Its not meant to be a place for porn etc. Just an adults only section, so we can ensure we are not directly exposing youth to things they shouldnt be, but at the same time be able to post and joke as many always have.

The main forum, the loyalist section, etc are still for all intents and purposes, PG-13.
Everyone mind your posts in those sections. There is a fine line between harmless jokes, and too far for young eyes. Please do your best to keep your posts on the correct side of the line. Im not trying to be a party killer. Im not trying to be Mr. Goodie.

Im trying to ensure the largest user base possible and a place for everyone in that base to have and go with out worry about this or that. I just want everyone to have thier own piece of cake is all.

is there a way to make a certain section invisible to anyone under 18? that would probably make things easier to control

Yes. Thats what the 18+ forum is.

That happens already anyhow.
You be surprised at the number of under age users that already exist here.
Whats important, is that i know who those users are as of now.

When its all said and done, no one gets in unless I place them in, so thier arguements will have to be very convincing. Its my name on this forum, and I'll risk nothing just so someone can feel part of the big people group.

Querry: Are we talking biological age or mental age (maturity). It could make a difference.

Good point Omega. Biologically I'm 21, but sometimes I act like I'm 12 lol. Not sure who else this holds for but I'm guessing that I'm not the only one.

The same 18+ standard that applies to all movies and games and Fed/State laws.
Biological.
This is the best solution I got. I'm not going to sway in keeping a forum for all ages and people.
That comes with extra responsibility. SO be it.
The forum is big enough to house the differences and still have one bigger open general forum.

All users will be giving a series of tests to prove that they are infact over the age of 18. They shall cover all things adult from 80's culture references and music to drinking and women/men.

People who fail this test will be forever locked in Disney Movies.

Not worth the risk. If that's the price of failure, then I'll stay away from there.

80's culture references seems a bit odd, as users like myself and omega are 90's kids.

I've sent my PM for consideration.

Spider and scorpion test? That sounds painful. I'm a 90's kid too, but I do like a lot of 80's music and movies. Maybe I'd pass? Not sure but the threat of being locked in a Disney movie for all of eternity is somewhat of a horrible fate.
