New Junior Section perhaps?
« on: January 24, 2008, 01:22:15 pm »
Just wondering about the possibility of adding in a Junior section onto the forum?

Have no idea about the legalities of it of course.

We have a 13 year old who loves riding; she has 2 horses that live at stables; she is involved with her fancy chooks and looks after the rabbits and ducks here.

I know most kids talk to eachother on MSN - god forbid they should use the telephone or talk face to face! - but this type of interest isn't necessarily a subject shared by friends at school. It might be quite nice for them to be able to talk to like minded teenagers even if it is only to moan about cleaning out the rabbits!! For those living in more remote areas it could also be a way of making new friends.

I don't know of any other forums that offer this facility - this could be because they haven't thought of it, or maybe it a legal thing after all.

What do others think?

What a good idea Kate, I for one think we should encourage our youngsters to be involved.

Excellent idea Kate, I've setup a Juniors forum in the Community section. Only registered users can access it so casual visitors to the forums won't see it. That means we need word of mouth to get it going, so please encourage any youngsters you know who might be interested to register.

As for keeping it safe, the forums are carefully moderated, and we get notification of all new members and I then check them out.   ;D

If anyone wants to volunteer to help moderate a particular forum let me know - you get to wield the editorial pen (not that you lot need it!) and are charged with keeping it interesting if the posts start to dry up.

Is it possible to have a 'for sale' section some where?
