This question has come up on another thread, what do you all think should be the minimum age for joining?

I'm not sure that there should be a minimum age really. I can't see that many real youngsters would want to or be able to contribute so I think I'm up for anyone joining in. However, I think access to the bar should be over-18s only. Like a real bar :wink:

I think that's right, any youngsters wanting to join in would automatically be mature enough or I can't see them wanting to. Good to keep them outside the bar, can't have underage drinking goinmg on!

Agree about the Bar. Otherwise I've nothing against there being younger members, although I'm not very good at conversing with kids in the normal way :lol:
If junior members join, there could be an intro period to check that they are posting and contributing in an acceptable manner. Although I imagine this is necessary for any member :lol: . Maybe a junior member status for 16 or 18 and under?

:agree: with what others have said - Like Sheila I dont really 'do' children but I guess any that wanted to join us here would be reasonably grown up - otherwise they would be bored to death !!!

I think so, Tess! Looks like we're all agreed anyway.
