Just a thought: You should probably say in the OP that Everfree Forest is the 18+ section and that you won't get in if you're not 18+. Right now, it doesn't say that anywhere unless you've already joined Everfree Forest.

A while back, I was let into Everfree Forest, and I had access for a few days. Then, I came online to find that I was removed from the section's access list, and couldn't view the section anymore, because I'm not 18. I get that 18 is a fitting age for this sort of material, as at 18 you become a legal adult. And yet, people much younger than 18 are exposed to so-called "mature" content every day. "Kids" below 18 play Halo, watch Die Hard, and hear curses and sexual innuendos every day.

I'd like to propose a compromise here.

There are some of us on the internet who can't simply be defined over lines of age; general maturity is a fickle thing. Some are old past their years, and others are children in adult's skin. Age isn't even an accurate measurement of maturity over the internet, because, honestly, everyone is free to post an age different from their own. Age isn't a measure of wisdom, or experience; it's merely a measure of time. Maturity is something you assess, not assume. And that's where the compromise comes in. Can someone below 18, such as me, earn their way into Everfree Forest through a test of some sort, in the interests of allowing those who can handle the content, present and future, into the section?

I always set my age to something like born january 1st, 1900.

Not that it really matters anymore but the whole age limitation thing really bugs me. It means squat.

They have a point. Plus, our 'mature content' is not all that mature anyway. We do have a clopfic, but that's honestly more of a joke, and other than that the worst we have are a few torture fics, and while that might get hell in a blood-censoring place like Germany, it's fine in most of the rest of the first world.

Dsarker, he's already sent you several PMs about this, as have I. You were the one who revoked his access, and I'm not going to overrule you if you expressly want to keep the 18+ rule applied here, but I personally believe that we can make an exception in this case. If you don't respond by the time a couple days have passed, I'm going to assume that you have no interest either way and readd Emberflash to the group. If you want to discuss this in PMs, I'd be more than happy to do that, but I'd prefer if we resolved this as quickly as possible, as he has been waiting for nearly a month for a response and I don't think that it is appropriate to completely ignore a problem.

If you haven't made any response by, say, the night of the 25th, I'm going to go ahead and return his access.

If I may suggest purging the records as giving special treatment may be looked down upon.

The Emperor knows, the Emperor is watching.

I, quite personally, don't give a damn about what age you are. I'm below the age and I've got stuff in there. This entire dispute was raised by another forum member, who knows who they are.

I've got no objection, though perhaps this should be a thing decided on by the whole forum as opposed to just one or two.

Yeah, I was kinda wondering about that. That makes a lot more sense now, thanks!

Except this isn't. I've never been a proponent of rigid rules, as they can never cover every situation. I believe that we need a general rule for this, but that we should be free to ignore it if it doesn't apply to the situation. Obviously there is quite a bit of difference between someone who is 16/17, and someone who is 12/13. Gog knows by the time I was 16 I had read worse stuff than most of what is in there. And Luna forbid, if we ever get any fans from the target demographic, we obviously want this rule in place.

Okay, it's christmas day (barely) where I am, I have seen nothing but support for readding Emberflash to the Everfree Forest, and I'm probably not going to be online for most of tomorrow. So he's going back on, and if anyone wants to Grinch it up in here...

MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS

That is me and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
It stems from the fact that on our first pony forum (right after pony discussion got banned on Bay12), the section that is pretty much equivalent to the Everfree Forest now was labeled as "18+". Not only that, but one of the first threads in the Grimdark subsection was "18+ images", created by one of the admins.
From these facts, I got the impression that "Everfree Forest" is supposed to be 18+. I thought the admins wanted to enforce that. I don't care the least bit whether minors see the contents of Everfree Forest. Hell, for all I care, Everfree Forest could be a public section. I said multiple times that I wished I could post the 18+ stories in the normal sections.
Now that the admins have stated that Everfree Forest is, despite all contrary evidence, not supposed to be 18+, I don't really care who joins the group or how old they are, as long as they're fine with "mature" content.

There exists a common misunderstanding that places on the internet having a 1 followed by 8 followed by + do so for any other purpose than shoshing away lawyers.

That is ridiculous. I don't care whether it's true or not, that is absolutely ridiculous and utterly confusing for all users.
The admins' actions very clearly pointed to the Everfree Forest being a proper 18+ section and I just thought it through. It's not like it was me who removed Ember's access to Everfree Forest, I just pointed out that I thought the Everfree Forest was an 18+ section and that Emberflash wrote down that he's 16. If it was never supposed to be an 18+ section, then why did they act that way? Why make any reference to "18+" at all? Why remove Emberflash's access in the first place? Suddenly, they change their opinion on Everfree Forest being 18+ or not and now I'm supposed to be the one responsible? Sorry, but I'm not buying that.

Generally, I would recommend that the forum actually enforce the 18+ rule on account of liability. However, we're a tiny little forum of a few members, and it's highly unlikely that any of us is going to report the forum for letting our young but mature users have access to the lower boards. We have a minimum footprint, so we're likely not going to have any trouble.

If we do grow into some sort of a hotspot for pony discussion on the interwebs, that idea might have to change, and we might actually have to follow through with the '18+' rule to keep ourselves from getting mauled by lawyers and moral guardians and whatnot. Until such a miracle, though, we're pretty free to do what we wish.

Yes, but if you only read this thread, one would get the impression that I was the only one who ever thought of the Everfree Forest as an 18+ section and that I am the one responsible for Emberflash getting booted from the group. Point in case...

But if that was really the case, then some of the actions of the admins don't make sense.

Probably just a bit of confusion. Happens sometimes.

Now that we actually have the rules (or lack thereof) negotiated, there's no real reason to keep having the discussion.
