What is the youngest you can be to participate in mylot? Lately I have been seeing young people, one discussion just revealed to me that one user is actually 10 when their profile says they are 16, isn't that against the rules?

I didn't know there was a minimum age for MyLot. With MyLot's strict filteration of bag language, and even words that they deem to be bad because of possible double meanings (I can't call a racoon by the last 4 letters of its name because that word is also a derogatory word for black people, though I have no idea WHY a black person would be called that) MyLot is tame enough for a 3 year old to read, so there is no need for an age restriction. If there is one, it may only be because of earnings, or something. I don't know. I've never seen one. There are other sites I'm on that have a "I am 18" box to check, so that guarded viewing can be turned on, but MyLot just doesn't HAVE adult content to get all hot about, to begin with... except for creative people who misspell forbidden words to get them past the censors. LOL

'...but MyLot just doesn't HAVE adult content to get all hot about, to begin with... ' I would not want any child of mine reading what goes here in the s-e-x interests. Recently there are disussions which are much too explicit for any child and certain things, in my opinion, should not be discovered by reading about them on a website and especially not on one that is supposed to be family orientated

i think it is against the rules - but think back to when you were young - if you were like me you probably broke every rule you could see (and still got the teachers to give you very good grades..)

Yes, it is against the rules. The minimum age a person can be on here is 16 years old. You can see it under the FAQ's at this link: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq1.aspx It is listed under Becoming a myLot member: Is there an age limit in order to create an account in myLot? [i] Yes there is an age limit in order to create an account in myLot. Users must be at least 16 years of age or older. If we find that a user is younger then the required age, we will delete the account immediately and all earnings that may have been earned will be lost. [/i]

That is against the rules and regulations of Mylot and only if the person is 16 years in age, he\she is eligible to take part in Mylot and enjoy its benefits. Inspite of the rules and regulations, people tend to violate the rules and that is happening here too.

I'm pretty sure it's 16 years old and being the two people above me seem to think so and one at least has apparently quoted Mylot I don't think i'm wrong. At the time I joined I was 18 so I was pretty sure basically every program I come across i'm probably allowed to join and now that i'm turning 21 soon I soon won't have to worry about most restrictions, aha.

It's against mylot rules as it stated that you have to be at the age of 16.
