at first I was thinking hell yeah! then after my 11 year old son said he wanted to join ws.com I thought Hell no. Even with this being a pretty much family friendly forum, 11 is too young to be involved in this forum. However there are some young ones on here. If they want to see porn or nasty shat let them do it somewhere else. and you know they will. Lets keep ws.com the way it is and maybe someone will create a wakeskating forum web-site that is straight 18 and up. age verification useing cc# and such. say and post what the fvck you want to say and post

Parker, i don't even know what to say about that. Laughing

taku, cheapskate, word. I feel like if a site really needs to be 18+, at that point it's not really a wakeskating forum and you're probably not talking about wakeskating. And even though we have a million side forums, it's ultimately wakeskating.com. But I understand that adults sometimes like to chat with other adults...and one other issue with the site can be immaturity and whatever else. That was one catalyst for some people to leave the site and try to do their own thing...just younger people not really thinking about what they're posting and things like that...kind of watering down the forum content.

Anyway, hopefully that helps. Peace!

A wakeskating forum that has a section that's specifically non-wakeskating. It's a pretty simple concept that's practiced on a ton of sites. Would you let your kids look at everything on the non-wakeskating forum right now? It would be better to make that 18+ just for liability issues IMO.

And I never posted any nude chicks, they were close to it though Smile

Good point about the non-wakeskating forum

Maybe if there could be a sub-forum in Non-Wakeskating specifically for more mature content. Not really for the purpose of being able to post MORE graphic things than that which are already here, but perhaps to filter it from Non-Wakeskating into a different sub-forum. I for one visit this site often at school while it's in session, and i'm sure many visit it at work and with family/friends in the room. There have been a few times when i open a thread with a pretty vague title, only to see something a little over the line for certain situations, and with a section specifically for such things, viewing it at the wrong times could be avoided.


Idea

Arrow Arrow

It's pretty much standard practice, off topic sections should be 18+.

Off topic sections are normally assumed to be not work safe and are normally assumed to be 18+ only.. just not here. Since many do browse them while at work, it's common practice to put "NWS" or something in the topic to warn the worker bees. Another huge forum I browse (50k+ users) bans people for posting non work safe stuff and forgetting to put a warning. People have been fired for less. Especially in a right to work state like florida.

You'll have to send us a lottery ticket that you purchased in the mail (proof of purchase will be required along with a photocopy of your driver's license)!

FAIL! Wink I'm kidding...

nah, we dont' need SSNs. Just a legit drivers license that doesn't have a name like Mclovin on it. Laughing

of course that's a super bad reference and nothing against you...not like your license would say mclovin or anything.
