Proposing a Rule Change to the Forums

We here at WCBC have noticed a growing issue on Chief Delphi and in FIRST as a whole and feel like petitioning for a positive change.

RAISE THE REQUIRED AGE LIMIT TO POST ON THE BOARDS TO 23.

Why do we let 22 y/o's and younger post on CD? Seems like we could have more educated, reasonable, and graciously professional posts if only real adults contributed. You'd never see a real engineering company or organization having its unofficial forum dominated by high school and college aged kids.

The younger crowd can put in time with read only mode until they have obviously, objectively matured enough to contribute.

For the health and safety of this community, we think swift response affirming this petition to be of utmost importance.

Discuss!

Re: Proposing a Rule Change to the Forums

I would argue the opposite, why do we let people over, say, 30 post on here? They clearly lack the immaturity necessary to "wil payne" all over the boards.

That sounds really gross for some reason.

I also want to let everyone know that I'm already 23, so you can't get rid of me that easy.

Actually, the more I think about it, let's enforce that only people in District events are allowed opinions.

Re: Proposing a Rule Change to the Forums

I don't see what's wrong with asking kids to spend some time posting over on r/frc first? Put in the hours, get some cheap karma, and THEN join us over here on the real forum. As a reflection of the FIRST community, its important we keep this site gracious professional with only high quality posts.

Re: Proposing a Rule Change to the Forums

It would certainly save students from having to cringe looking back at their old posts like I'm sure many of us do.

Does the cover troll accounts too?

Wait so you're saying CD would be rid of Andrew Lawrence? We need to get a formal vote going right now to make this new rule take effect as soon as possible.

I never thought I would be giving WCBC positive rep (since the east coast is clearly much better), but here I am.
