    If you want to get back to the original question, then no, I don't think there should be an age limit on modship, just a good-enough-to-do-the-job limit.

    There, is that what you mean by getting back on topic?
    yes thank you.

    Apollo's always been an excellent mod, as was LH before he stood down. Maturity and ability to mod well aren't linked to age in any way other than the most loosest.

    In the UK, 16 year olds are deemed old enough to marry and have kids. I don't see why modding TSR is more demanding than either of those things.
    16 year olds can only marry with the consent of their parents.

    I don't like to see people getting shot down by a mob of people. People on here always gang together and attack someone with a different view. I agree with your views ninman, the rules on here can be pretty pedantic, and you usually fall into them at some time or other because they're so picky that you don't even think that you might be breaking them and I think most people, whether they admit it or not would be at least slightly peeved if they were told what to do by a 16 yr old... ah well, guess everything has it's cons. TSR is great, but it is blimmin strict.

    Not in Scotland. That's in the UK, right.

    In Scotland 16 year olds still require consent. I believe the requirment ceases at 17, although as I'm not scottish I'm not sure. However, the majority of the UK certainly requires parental consent.

    So a 21 year old can tell you what to do, but a 16 year old can't? (even though it is the same thing) :s:

    I agree, and I'm English, so they do here. It was the potential to be married that I was using in my argument, rather than the practicalities of actually getting to the church.

    Well, you've got the potential to be considered criminally liable at 11 that doesn't mean you have the requisite maturity to know right from wrong.

    I left home and went to University when I was 16. At that point I was considered an adult, but in all honesty I was too young. I should've waited another year before I started University.

    You're an adult when you reach the legal age of majority. Not before. If you go to university before you are legally an adult, the university is held in loco parentis.

    Funny; reading your posts, I could've sworn you were fifteen at the most.
    Less most certainly. Don't insult us 15-year olds

    Yes because you're old enough to be a good judge of that.

    Apparently, I'm a better judge than you. The immaturity you have exhibited in this thread is almost too appalling to be believable.

    No, but these ages are picked becuase they're an acceptable compromise: at 11, many if not most kids will have learnt the difference between right and wrong, even if they're not au fait with all the ins and outs of the law.
