    Hello people

    Just a quick update. Due to the lack of Moderators and the constant growing population of our community, we've come to the decision to lower the Age Requirement to 14 years of age.

    This might be a temporarily step towards the lack of Moderators and can change at any time.

    You can apply here

    That's a right thing to do for a community and giving opportunities to younger members prove their skills, dedication and maturity. Approved! :)

    Potentially good decision. Potentially meaning good if allowing only mature members of the community to become moderators. Experience shows that immaturity + power = disaster.

    That being said, I do see, however, why this update was needed. There are many resignations being made, and the community is only growing. Even with the growing demand for moderators, though, I don't think applicants should be accepted faster/easier. I think that only the age requirement should change, but applications should still be looked at the same exact way. A community can lose popularity much easier that it can gain popularity, and abusive/unqualified staff members will surely drive players away.

    Great decision Max! We are in need of Moderators right now due to all the Moderators who have resigned very recently and this will surely help as a lot of applicants are actually 14, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't mature enough.

    This should be posted on the appropriate Thread, this is the wrong thread to post on be sure to make a proper post so more people wil see it and Staff can give their own entitled opinion on what you have done
