If you follow me on Plurk you’ve probably noticed that I go batshit on pretty much any post about the upcoming Grid Merge.
I’m sick of adults being little brats about this whole thing.
Grow up. You guys are being more of a problem than the three hundred or so teens coming onto the grid.
Changing your Mature islands to Adult to keep teens out, even though it’s very well known that they’ll be limited to G-rated islands? Real grown-up, guys.
Paranoid about having slex with a teen? You probably have. This may come as a shock to you, but teens have been on the Main Grid for years. I know many teens who have told me that they have accounts on Main Grid, and when I transferred, that’s how I kept in contact with a lot of them.
So far, those kids I speak of blend in well with the Main Grid crowd. It’s nearly impossible to tell who’s a teen and who’s an adult in most cases that I’ve run into.
Worried about the teens bringing in drama? Look at all the bitching you’ve created over this. Look at the drama surrounding clubs and whatnot – many I’ve been to have posted NO-DRAMA signs around the clubs. Teen drama is nothing in comparison to Main Grid drama.
Worried about being overrun with teens? There are only about a thousand or so active Teen Grid users per month. Compare this to about SIXTY thousand concurrent users on Main Grid at any given time. Teens are pretty much a drop of water in a lake here.
Teens have a lot to offer. I spent a year on the Teen Grid, and there are several very, very good content creators, scripters, and whatnot there that would benefit immensely and contribute much to the Main Grid. Not all teens are worthless drama queens as a lot of you seem to think.
