Alright, So we all know the majority of this site is children under 16. I have no problem with kids being here but I do have an issue with having to dumb down the things I can discuss or the ways I can speak to other adults here.

I think we should have a board that is an 18+ Rated board that will allow the use of language not suitable for minors, political discussion and the sharing of opinions on movies, games or other matieral that may not be suitable for kids.

This is NOT a board for things like pornography, but more of a place where people who are older can chill and talk without the need to be constantly looking over their shoulder trying not to get in to trouble. Now, People under 18 will obviously still go in there, but as long as its labled as a lounge for the older members, the community admins will then not be responsible if they get complaints from parents because that area is specially designated for such things.

The younger members get the benefit of stricter moderation, why not give the older members a place where they can just act themselves.

This is kind of like Pleasure Island at Disney World

Seriously though, consider it, I think its a good idea. Hell, I would love to have a place I can actually discuss women on without getting crap from an admin for posting pictures of a model in sexy clothing

I support this idea. Admins. Please look into and possibly think about it. There would have to be like, no nudity or something like that(if the younger ones get on the threads their not suppose to.) but, i would definitely support this!!!!!

I think the Mods or Admins should stop all the stupid Forum posts, the ones that involve nothing but crap, means nothing etc. They really annoy me! A adult 18+ place would be wayyy better for me, I'm 13 but I'm a lot more mature then most of the kids on this site..

Example- 'Whats the point of voxelsniper?' Whats the fricken point of that forum post? Look it up on the fricken internet, or on the Mods part of any Minecraft site, you should find something!
^Not to pick on that person..
I looked at it and saw a comment 'nah voxelsniper is 500 times better' <-- Immature

Those annoying posts block the area where posts that mean SOMETHING could go
Example- This post, the Help Meh one, Should have spelt it right though -_-
Those are the types we should have instead of things like 'Whos more popular' <-- To that, WHO CARES!

[email protected] all the people who haven't read the topic, then bring up points that have already been discussed. Also, people seem to think that 18+ means "loads of porn" when it actually means "place for mature people to talk about interesting stuff that isn't one of the tedious repeated topics (Skin shops, join my pvp server, proof of herobrine , <-- god i hate that one)"

As an older person myself, I am completely serious. I don't think this site is anti-elder. I rather enjoy the peaceful, un-adult content of the site.


'peaceful, un-adult content'
Is that some sort of joke...? The reason we want this is because of the immature, hyperactive annoying childish kids that are filling up this site... ):

So your action plan is let the older audience leave and find a different, maybe better website instead of adapting to their needs and making the site for everyone...

1. No minecraft community website will be better than this.
2. Moving towards more adult-content will increase trolling.
3. Adapting for everyone's needs? That's just plain silly. Planetmineporn?

tl;dr
Why so serious? (evil voice)

In response to your points.

1.That's opinion, not fact.
2. I disagree. The trolling has gotten a lot worse more recently due to little kids
trying to troll and the other little kids feeding the trolls
3. The idea of an 18+ lounge does not necessarily mean people would talk about
adult content, it really means more of a place where immature, moronic kids
can't dumb the place down and restrict the more mature older members from
discussing things. Also, where did you get the idea people would talk about
porn? That's just disturbing man...

Well what do you mean adult content? We don't want to add anything inappropriate into the 18+ Lounge even if there will be one. Basically what we are getting at here is this just to basically be a swear-free lounge for no parents to fuss over what their children are seeing on the the regular forums.

2. The ones who think they're intelligent and mature
3. Immature and idiotic

There is a warning when you enter the board. And tbh there would be nothing that shocking in it. If you choose to ignore the warning then its not our fault what you witness in their that you may not understand or find offensive,

18 pages for the 18+ Section.... lawl.

But this seems pretty cool. I'm still a minor but this would be nice. I'll save you all from the basic response from most minors "I'm only X years old and I'm pretty mature! Even X year old's think so too!".

But the problem is when things go too far, this may have been mentioned before, but here are my 2 cents. Some people at the age of 18 or older may be more comfortable with some things that others may not be. It would all depend on the maturity of the members posting there. There are many problems I see with this but no need to go further.

This idea is like communism, good on paper (or forums posts :S), bad in actuality.

I don't think this is a good idea. I really don't think people need to discuss politics on Planet Minecraft. Maybe if something new was added to the Everything Else section this could work.

The point of the forums is so I can meet with people who share a common interest (In this case Minecraft) and also discuss other thing with them. So you are correct, i would be more interesting with this here. All these haters probably just get the "Not untill your 18" talk at home by their parents and are deciding to relive their stress here.

I could get behind a team speak channel.


or on the off chance this idea gets off the ground, they could create a board with a post requirement as well as a zero tolerance of nudity rule on people with picture posting privileges. Most boards I am on don't even let people post pics or html links until 50 posts in, it kind of stops the 12 year-old's and trolls from creating a dump account and spamming the board with crap.

There is potential for this idea to go horribly wrong...

That being said can we get a personal's section to the forums? I could put down...

"22 year old guy who has lots of diamonds, likes moon lit walks on the beach, killing creepers and pina coladas. looking for friendship maybe more."

It is called sarcasm, but truth be told the potential for kids to ether troll or take advantage of an 18+ section is so high it is astronomical. There is no way to police it. or even verify that the members going into said section are in the required age groups. also the potential for legal flak is there as well, in some states distribution of just pornography (and don't tell me that a 18+ board would not descend into such things) to minors is illegal, and distributing or displaying it can be a serious offense. Just thinking of the legal and not to mention moral decision the site admins would have to take into account is a mind boggling matter.

Just my initial thoughts on the matter. now can we drop the 18+ idea and get back to building things with blocks, and leave the 18+ to 4chan.

If you'd bothered to read this then you would know that its not going to be just 18+ and it will be policed by a board of mods, if your only going to be negative, go away

Look at my post above the first one you did, anyone should be able to come in, but they can't complain if they're offended and troll/immature kids can be banned from the section. As i've said before, even if your 18, doesn't mean your mature

true, surely the best way to achieve an 18+ section cocidering bad language will probs b there. would be some form of age verification?
im all for a pmc mature area but its keeping the "kids" out thats the problem

Okay, so as you've clearly not read the entire thread I'll explain it to you. It's not that they want people 18+, they want MATURE people to have MATURE discussions with. Age doesn't factor in this but 18 is generally the age that you are claimed to be sensible... Might want to read more before you post /:

Ive been asleep for the past 8 hours, i come back to find people be hating. Why hate so much, this is probably the best idea i've heard for this place. If you don't like it, have fun talking to the trolls. I ike pmc, but the forums have been getting boring, with the same old crap. People claiming they've seen herobrine and noobs asking stupid questions. I like this idea so much because to me it represents something worth staying for.

Speaking of asking stupid questions, the number of people on the topic saying "loads of under 18's will join". Seeing as about 5 different people have stated a number of times that under 18's will probably be able to join, providing they're not stupid and don't complain about mature stuff, and if they do they'll be reported to a band of moderators, simple.

You say that like its a bad thing. PMC has been going downhill with the LQ posts and the discontent within the older PMC users has been growing.
