Okay, so I was thinking, as I was typing up my latest child character, that I've done some pretty young characters. But, and this is where the topic starts, I realized that I always have the youngest characters. I like playing kids. It's fun, and if I rp them long-term I get to have them gradually grow up/change. Plus, parents and older siblings and doting uncles/grandparents can come into play. (Yes, sometimes I play those too. But that's another subject.) The questions I would like answered are: How young are you personally comfortable making a character? How young is the cut off point at and below which the child should be NPC'd? If you are/were an Administrator of a site, how young would you be comfortable accepting someone who made a fairly young child character? I understand that much of this depends on the character and the site and such, but I'd like to know personal opinions. I was thinking about it, and realized that if I consider nine years old fine, and have considered a seven year old character, then what exactly is the point where things are too young? If seven's fine, then by that logic six should be great, and if six is fine, five should be all right. Personally, I figure five would be my cut-off. But I'll be reading over what the rest of you say before I make a concrete verdict.
