    -We got to talking. (Takes the guildy into a private situation, getting ready to get his man on, when he realizes....)
    -He realizes its a 12 year old and loses all interest, and even hints that he's afraid of being seen as a pedo. (Its common practice for people to stop stalking you once you reveal you're very young or you're really a dude and not a chick, which happened to me several times since my main happens to be a female human. If I tell them I'm a dude and they stop wanting to have friendly chats with me. Lots of people aren't just after innocent companionship.)
    It's the "we got to talking" part that weirds me out. I've chatted with everyone in my guild before, but never into such a personal conversation where their age came into question.

    I picture an "A/S/L?" sort of conversation going on...

    Answering the title of the thread.

    Because my kids love to fight monsters and explore the world.

    Long answer: My guild is made up of friends and family. Older adults and parents with young kids. We invite the kids to come into the guild to play. It's a safe haven and they are labeled as such. When they get on topics are censored. My 2 and 7 year old love to play the game. My son loves to fight monsters and my daughter loves to quest. Both are watched but with trade chat turned off there really isn't a reason to "hover" over them while they play.

    Girls want to play the game, not be hit on by random nerds.

    You're fine. So long as when they tell your their age, you back off, and don't say something like "Cool. So when are your parents going out of town?" Nobody's coming to your house.

    so glad I didn't say anything inappropriate, even as a joke which I can do since there's also some people in my guild who are older than me.

    I don't want chris hansen knocking on my door.

    I'm scared to even be friendly anymore to anyone in game, suppose to be a teen game.
    That 12 year old girl probably has seen more porn on the internet than you and most likely has a real or improvised dildo/vibrator somewhere in her room. Don't worry about it. Kids today know more than we think.

    Some nice pedo style reasoning/rationalizing there. Try telling the judge kids know more than we think and try not worrying about jail when you end up in court after Chris Hansen comes knocking.

    I really hope you don't actually think that a 12 year old girl has seen more internet porn than a 30+ male.

    Depends. If that 30+ male is a wizard, she wn't stand a chance. But really, children these days are not quite the innocent angels some people think they are.

    Still, you really shouldn't hit on a 12yo (ofc, that only applies AFTER you know her age)

    Everyone keep saying the game is rated 13+, but on mine it says 12+.

    Did they up the age by 1 year with MoP?

    Firstly, as a gamer geek, I freely admit that in just my circle of gamer geek friends, we have 4 people under the age of 16, two of which are girls. I myself am 31, and believe it or not, all 4 of these kids' parents trust me to host DnD games in my apartment. The other 2 are like 19 and 23 or something. It's nice to know not everybody automatically sees anyone over the age of 21 as "ZOMG CREEPER!" when they have kids. We have a damned good time every week, I honestly don't give a flip how young or old they are, they're all good people.

    Geekdom transcends ages. So yes, there WILL be underage people in online games like WoW. I find it rather surprising that you didn't know this happened. I meet people between the ages of 14-16 in WoW seemingly all the damned time, I'm beginning to figure out why people say only kids play Alliance...as far as "ONOZ MY VIRGIN EARS" are you serious? Even when I was a kid back in the 80s and 90s we knew about sex, drugs, and everything in between. People who raise their children in sheltered environments are just asking for trouble when, and there WILL be a when, their children finally find out about such things.

    Secondly, I know teenagers who act more mature than people my age. That's really pathetic. Age =/= mentality or maturity, unfortunately. It's a complete crap shoot. As far as my WoW friends go, like, the REAL friends I talk to regularly, I think at least 4 of them are underage, and one of them is in his 50s. It's just a matter of finding like-minded people, those of whom I get along with the best. I really hate that age has become such a huge fucking issue lately, and I hate even more that everyone automatically assumes that anyone who converses with underage people is a fucking pedophile. "What could you possibly have in common with someone so young?" We're. Fucking. GEEKS. I'm sorry you don't understand, go back to watching your fooseball and drinking beer and shit. We're gonna go throw some dice around, maybe play some MTG, and log into WoW later.

    Did I say "go fuck a little kiddy?" No I didn't. Learn to read not interpret. I know its hard but just because you wanna fuck little kiddies doesn't mean I do.

    If you dont think its a good possibility then you need to open your eyes sir. Kids these days find more shit online than most of the adults.

    You are allowed to talk and communicate with minors on the Internet as long as it is apropriate. I mean just becasue you are 30y old and she is 12y old doesn't mean anything or isn't wrong in any way. You both play an game, and you communicate in this game. Doesn't matter what gender or age you are. It's not like you try to get her phone number or is askling irl stuff in a appropriate way. As long as you play a game and communitcate in the game about the game, it doesn't matter in any way.
