"you must be 15 or older to join"
« on: April 19, 2011, 04:40:54 AM »

Every other forum on the internet only requires that you be 13 or older. Also, both the United Nations and the United States federal government use the COPPA system which says that you only have to be 13 or older to join. So why the stupid "herp derp derp 15, not 13" rule?

The older you are the more mature you are, or should be.

Because 13 year olds generally tend to be morons.

lol..what the fuck does that have to do with anything? It's upto the person who runs the site how old you have to be to use it.

If you have a problem with the rule you are more than likely breaking the rule. GTFO

I reckon it might be because Half Life game's age rating is 15/16...

Proof?


Well, I agree with TheCoolGman, it also could be about maturity... No one said that if You're a kid You're not mature, but that's what often happens.
I confess, I'm 14 (if You're on HLC You probably already know), but again, it's about maturity, just look at MW2 multiplayer crawling with stupid kid quick-scopers... Get what I mean?

I'm only repeating what others said, my part is only the HL cover. I won't bother You now.

Just tick the little 'I'm older then 15' box if you have a problem with it. It's okay... No one will ever know.

It was because of the age rating of the game. Honestly though, noone will really care as long as you dont make a big deal about it
