Saz does have a point. Another alternative would to have a thread or section or something and the training sgts as mods (like the clan boards)... But if the MMCC isn't gonna have much to do with it this isn't the best idea.

One comment on this. For the kids who do want to have armor that fits the official crls, the lack of a forum will make this hard. Now I understand that there are liability issues to allowing children to use forums, but perhaps you can have a different forum for each age group? For the youngest two groups have it such that parents have to post. But for the oldest since they're over 13 they should be able to post without liability issues?

I just don't really see the point if there is no way for the kids to discuss their costumes and have their quality improve.

If they are over 13, they can just continue using these forums without any liability issues.

Or we could just continue using this forum.

This would probably be the best option. If some kid that doesn't have a Mercs account wants to get more armor info, and take part in some of the discussions here, they can easily sign up for one.

I am looking forward to working with all the teens!! I'm very excited about this and very proud to be able to provide advice and assistance to all the teens that will be joining!

I raised my teens to adulthood and they survived so I'm sure the rest of you will survive being around me as well.   :P

But will you survive us? :laugh:

We're going to look at some alternatives to using the Mercs forum as a direct line of communication in the Corps.  Mostly because of information privacy laws, and it's always better to err on the side of caution when it comes to legalities.

Oya! My son could be a Strill, he's been going crazy since I got here with hopes that he could join once I reach OM status. Now he will have the opportunity to get a head start.

I had a though on communications: since there are Sgts. in charge of the 3 levels, could a Facebook page be set up for the young warriors to communicate? I am not sure as to what "legalities" are, but I think it wouldn't hurt looking into it. The Sgts. could monitor/restrict the site to prevent unwanted issues. Just some thoughts.

Legally, Facebook has the same restrictions as forums.  Facebook rules say you must be 13+ to join.

Is this of the kids of official members only? I was unclear on this. I know my son would love to be a part of it but I am not an Official member yet.

Nope. Kids of OMs can join the mercs officially as Verd'ika members. This however is open to any kid, whether or not there parents are mercs. ;)

Parent's permission, however, is mandatory.
