This is cool,....

An idea, as I will throw it out here for lack of batter place.......

But would it not be a good thing to have a "kids corner" if you will. So that our kids with ages say 15-18 on down, could chat about sailing. This would obviously need to be somewhat parent watched over, depending upon the age of kids, and kids that have registered parents could only post via say a mods approval.

Just a thought, certainly not a 'have to have" or just leave in the general area for now, with this thought/idea in mind for future use if enough kids join.

If anyone is intersted in setting up a Kids THread, focused for kids to talk to each other about sailing (or anything else, as far as I am concerned), I will do my best to moderate it. It will be strictly moderated and tighter than the general forum, but that is probaby the point.

It is up to the members, not me. But I know Cam would support it.

Sounds like a good idea to me, but my youngest is 21 so leaves use out. I think adults like Alex and others should be able to post sailing videos or educational sailing comments.Just my thoughts.

CD,

Another thought, re the moderating, frankly you and cam probably have your hands full mod'ing the other area's, I would try and enlist some of the "parents" if you will and give a couple of them mod powers in the kids corner section. That is not to say that you and cam could not mod there etc.... that might also keep it under wraps a little better for language etc.

If I could get my 15 yr old to sail a bit more, this might be a good plce for her to come, my 19 and 21 yr olds, they can view the rest just fine IMHO. Even the 15 yr old some she could see etc, but..........I may not over see her as much as I would bubb and alex over their kids due to age.

If done correctly, I could see this as a good thing for sailnet. Some of the videos alex has done, could be top posted there along with where they are now, along with other good links fo rinof that kids might enjoy etc too. With that, need to go pickup 15 yr old!

I think another thought would be to set up a forum/thread that is locked unless a moderator is on duty. It is the nightime prowlers that scare me... but our kids would not be on then anyway (hopefully).

I would love to think the older kids would get into this, but probably just the younger children. My guess... but it is just that, a guess.

But I do not mind helping out as much as possible. I still think it is important for parents to be "looking over the shoulder" of their kids. NO MODERATOR can replace the parents. The ultimate responsibility would lie there.

PS Re the parents posting, of course I think that would be ok.

Childrens Forum

I would be interested in gathering interest in a childrens forum. I think that instead of opening another forum, I would like to collect thoughts on replacing the Provisioning Forum. It seems to be the least active, second maybe to Racing... though Racing seems to be taking a lead right now. But most of the things covered in Provisioning could be covered in General or Living Aboard.

My thoughts on the Childrens Forum would be that it is just that: A forum for children (under 18) to gather and talk in a highly moderated environment. That does not mean that I am going to edit every post, but would not under any circumstances allow any public information re the child to be posted by them or about them (for obvious reasons). I would also request that parents still take the active role. In the end, it is the parents responsibility and we cannot replace that oversite.

I have also considered keeping the forum/threads locked unless a moderator is present. THe issue of PM's concerns me some as I do not know how to monitor those, but we can discuss that.

I think my son would participate some. I believe some others would too. Again, the point is a place where kids can get and talk freely - hopefull about sailing related things but I do not think it should be restricted to that. It would be moderated very tightly and strictly.

Thoughts??

I would only accept Fred in a thing like that under the following conditions:

1) no one other than the kid and the parents can post there. (so parents can have access to edit and protect the kids)
2) PArents have to submit top the mods, a request for the right to post there, and show proof that in fact its the kids that are posting and not an adult pretending to be a kid.
3) Adults can read and see, but not post, unless approved by the moderators.
4) graphical and verbal values must be controlled, and specially no viollence or sex related stuf allowed. NO OFF TOPIC.


basically a parent has a kid that wants to post, talk to the mods and present the screen name and let the mods decide.

I or my wife never allow Fred alone in the PC, and sometimes, when I am away, Fred sends me his posts and I post them for him, meaning I have 2 screenames in my PC, mine and Freds. This is being done by me now, but its not really legal, it has to become legal off course.~~

If I think of something else, I reply.

I think if we do this we could move all of fred's posts there to start.

what you say?

please don't remove the racing forum....

I agree with the idea and Fred will be delighted.

One thing would like to add is that the moderator must have access to the kid's account, including the password.

Also the PM benefit should be removed or inhibited bt kids parent, like Fred's is.

and did I say that absolutely no adult can post there? and if he does, he sends a pm to the mod requesting to post and the moderator posts it...

As I believe the kids will like the afdult support and encouragment as well as adults expereinces when they were children too.
