Joey (JasonSmalls) asked this important question about the new Teen forum, and I would like to separate it out as a topic in itself:

My preliminary reply on this point was:

Please have a look in the forum itself and you will see that you can start and reply to threads until you are 20. But still, I will post your question in the Mod Forum and we will get back to you guys about that. Okay? It's an important issue we didn't think about. We don't want to make guys feel rejected.

I want to let our teens know that this is now being discussed in the Mod Forum and that no teenager is going to get turfed out just because he reaches the age of 20. We don't have a more specific solution yet, but please know we understand and appreciate the problem.

Much love,

I would think that if a person was allowed into the teen forum to begin with there would be no limit to how long they wanted access to it. I think the issues would change with that person and they would just naturally switch over. There will be a point when they no longer are relating.

I agree Mike. Oh, and I suppose you could just use some gentle suggestions during that year after turning 20 to use the other forums, but deal with it when and if it happens.

But no one has to fear getting booted anywhere.
