Our Commitment to Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

This is a LEGO site. D:

No I didn't, that's default, BZPower says the same too and their forum is more attractive to younger ones then this forum. However I wrote in the registration terms that you cannot register if you are under 13, if you are, you get banned. The reason is because of child protection stuff that I don't want to deal with.

This is not a generic LEGO site, in-fact I'm saddened you think that. This is a modding community that is focused on LEGO games. The subjects and technical stuff we talk about is directed towards people older than 12.

Yes we have LEGO forums here, but they are not designed to attract under 13's, because LEGO is not a kids toy... LEGO is a creative outlet for any age group.

Then that seems rather contradictory...

 

I didn't say it was a generic LEGO site. I was referring to the main purpose of this site of researching classic LEGO games. Yeah, LEGO is for all age groups, but none-the-less it's marketed to kids.

I'm not seeing the contradictory.

How many kids are reverse engineering file formats, researching, modding games and programming? Not very many. Also these are OLD LEGO games, the majority of 'kids' are looking for the latest LEGO games, not the oldest ones which they didn't grow up with.

I do believe that children's privacy thing is in place on forums like these because those under 13 are NOT mature enough to have online discussions such as these (Trust me, I've been there). If we get annoying 12-year olds on this site I SWEAR TO WAD--

 

Oh, wait. We have them regardless.   8|

Pascal was eleven when I joined, but then again, he was not average for his age in his hacking skills.  Yes, I said it, we are hackers.  Sanctioned hackers, but hackers nonetheless.

Back then, I didn't have the rule about age.

Nevermind, you explained it above.

 

That's true. I still hold the theme being marketed at LEGO, you're going to get a few kids around (or at least people lacking the knowledge to spell).

That may be true of the majority of that demographic, but not all, there are some exceptions, albeit few.

This forum is pretty mature, I'm going to leave it at that.

I won't leave it alone. I CAN'T.

 

There was that rash of derp we get every now and then... And I think we still have it a bit.
