Hello everyone, I just wanted to mention that I had this idea off of another blog speaking about how you shouldn't base someone's maturity based off of what age they say they are, and this is my view on all of it.

Age is one thing, then there is maturity. I am 12 years old, but people get to know me enough to the point where they assume I'm over 15. Yes, I am 12, only 12 years of living. I know a lot though, enough to be able to explore the internet without questioning people's views. I do believe it is fun to mess around some times for the laughs. The thing is, when someone reads that a 12 year old is on the website they are on, they automatically lose respect, or don't want to speak to them. It's horrid in my view. To judge someone on their age. It IS bad that I lie, but I always say I am 15 on all websites so people don't leave just because I might not be fully grown. I have to do it because society is always going to judge. Sad, but true. Don't get me wrong with the fact that some young people are immature, but so are older people.

Overall, please don't judge based on age, give young one's and older one's a chance. You might even make a new friend. :)

Its all about the experience though. When you are 12 you don't have much experience as someone older than you. Maturity isn't age its a broad area of growth stages of your life. You can't skip those no matter what you do. You need to be patient and grow older.

I agree. I hosted a craftbukkit server when I was 11 and I didn't tell anyone my age. I reached a top of 120 people then it died once i gave my age away. Some people didn't judge since they new my maturity level due to how much time they had spent collaborating with me.

I agree immensely. I must have been like 11 when I was running servers in other games, and actually doing a good job of it.
