Is there an age minimum on this forum? Just a quick question I want to know because I'm under 18 and don't want to be kicked out involuntarily.

I believe the minimum age is 13.

13 is the minimum age. ALL websites should be complying with coppa laws but many forums don't care. We do though and follow this law:

Except that like me and my friends, us 13-15yr oldz really enjoy this forum and besides that, a lot of us out would still keeping bettas and goldfish in bowls and everything if we didn't find this place. I don't know where I'd be if I didn't join here to figure out what was wrong with my betta (unheated, unfiltered, 1 gallon bowl...). Now my bettas are in 10 gallon tanks and y'all have successfully given me MTS... Lol.

The age limit is not by choice but by law so its not something mike can change.

Probably when your kids are grown up and have their own accounts here it might be time to stop.

I have a grandson who will be eligible in 10 years. Does that mean I should leave?

This thread reminds me of when some kids on a forum told people older than 20 to get off 'their' interwebs, that the internet was for kids only

I didn't stay long to see where it'd end up. Had me rolling my eyes and shaking my head though.

You'd be surprised. I know people, ages 25-50, that use that term.
