It likely wouldn't be used much, but it could be useful for those once in a while threads. It would be used for things such as a music video that you are like "WTF?!" for (Miley Cyrus) or for music videos that you want to share that have excessive profanity, but don't want the younger ones to see. I personally found a video that is very eye opening about the dangers of driving irresponsibly. Unfortunately, I can't post it because it includes a good deal of violence, and I don't feel comfortable presenting it to the younger crowd.But mostly, I thought of this idea because of these two threads.http://empireminecraft.com/threads/re-housing-needed-thread.27992/#post-537800http://empireminecraft.com/threads/...family-for-christmas.32399/page-3#post-623256Both were shut down, mostly due to EMC's worry about parents. People like, who is a good example... JackBiggin! Younger players like JackBiggin want to donate to these causes, and so they ask their parents for money. His parents say no, but Jack harasses them until they come one and contact the Cow Overlord. Then, EMC created a un-documented "policy" against these type of threads. While I completely understand the reasoning behind the actions, I think that this idea is a fix for the problem. If someone is 18, they are considered to be a legal adult by EMC since it is based/hosted in the US. At that point, one is responsible for only themselves and parents aren't responsible for their actions anymore. So in theory, this should get rid of the problem. But of course, as we all know, there are people who don't enter in their own birthday. Well, in the Terms, it is stated that: Which clears EMC of liability and such. If a concerned parent of someone who lied about their age contacts IcC, then IcC can point them in that direction (the Terms) and request just a birth year so that the player doesn't wander into forums that they shouldn't be in. EMC would not be at fault, and it would be the parent's or teenage child's fault.I would like to hear everyone else's opinion on it. I don't like that it has to exclude a good number of our members, but it appears to be the only way that it could work. Who knows, maybe the video that I want to share could save a life. Maybe after others see it they will share it in other ways, possibly saving more lives. Twitch could have his thread open again, and it could be shared/tweeted/whatever and he could get the funds he needs to visit his family.What wouldn't be in this forum category? Any sexually explicit material, for obvious reasons.This will likely get a lot of flack, but its worth a shot. For those of you younger than 18, don't look at it like exclusion. Look at it in a way of something more that you get in the future. The way it currently is, no one is allowed to have such things on here. I know a lot of you are responsible and have the means of donating/viewing such things without problems, but for legal reasons 18 is the go to age.
