I was thinking that mabey there should be an age limit on kupika. Nothing major like a 10
or something. I'm sure that all of you are aware of the cybers on the site and I don't
think parents yould like to see that this is what kupika is about! Louise

But Kupika is an anonymous website, anyone can be anyone they desire~ that's the
point right? Also people could just lie and say they were ten! (: Tbh I think it is up to
the parents to know what their 10year olds are up to on the internet, Kupika isn't a

Kupika is not a nursery. If parents aren't monitoring what their young kids are doing,'s the parents' fault if their kid sees certain things.
Huge & unnecessary signature gap is huge & unnecessary. :3

An age limit is stupid. Like said above, Kupika is an annoymous site. An age limit would
ruin that aspect.

old enough to type, old enough to cyberfu...

*old joke*

seriously though Kovee is right, parents bear some responsibility, perhaps the main
responsibility for supervising their kid's activities. Some parents who would never let
their child talk on the TELEPHONE to complete strangers at a certain age, apparently are
braindead in not realizing that the Computer is just a different form of communication
device. Why they would be strict and monitor one and not the other is simply moronic.


but having said that, i believe the individual (kid) has responsibility also and should be
developing critical thinking skills and "cyber-street" smarts when traversing the
information superhighway. just as they wouldnt be stupid walkign or playing round the
neighborhood (or they shouldnt be) they need to be smart online also and avoid stuff they
know they should avoid.

.....granted i dont think we have to be alarmist and panic at the mere thought that a
person could be briefly exposed to something outside their family values  (that is like
the fearmongering that supported the Prop 8 campaign about the ridiculous notion that "gay
marriage" would be taught in schools).... but a kid should be taught and learn for
themselves that when they do encounter something they think they shouldnt be engaged with
that they need to have the determination to walk away from it...

kupika has some tools for reducing exposure to the unwanted and the users or their parents
should learn those...

but the best tool is just common sense and using their brain and teaching the child to
think for themselves....that ultimately is the JOB of a parent which many parents is the job of a parent not to protect their child from the world forever and
ever..but to help the child grow up to be an independent functioning adult....that
training shouldnt begin when they reach 16,17,18 or push them out the door to should start from the child more and more and more
indepence, trust and responsibility and most of all teaching them to be wise
persons....true out of experience and their own wisdom they may be able to spot dangers
that their child doesnt realize, but that itself is an opportunity for teaching and

1. I could say I was 68 if I wanted to, even though I'm only 14.
2. All of the people who cyber aren't "old". Most of them are teenagers.
3. As hina has said 43920482 times, KUPIKA IS NOT A KIDS' SITE. IT WAS MADE FOR USE BY
4. If parents let kids use the Internet freely, it's their fault that their kids are
exposed to cybering/language/etc.
5. That's just a stupid idea.

well, if parents didnt want their kids to know about cybering and sexual things and other
things little kids dont usually know, then i dont think their parents would allow them to
use the internet at all. with a few exceptions of course. my parents are aware of what i
know, as far as what happens on the internet. thats why im able to go on kupika. besides,
what will happen to all the little kids on kupiks now? and it wouldnt really matter
because they would go on it anyway. i know about a million people that have a myspace, and
are younger than 14.

This is the sort of crap the Australian government loves, and I full-out do NOT support
it. It's just censorship, it isn't a fix. It's just like the stupid word filter; people
are just going to twist things to their liking.

While I'm here, plz get rid of word filter hina, it's stupid. If you keep the word filter
after you've read Eddie's points, well.. that's just ironic and useless. Esp. if you've
been on FT lately. Lots of "f uck" and "s hit", it isn't doing anything but consuming more
of the precious little characters allowed on FT and annoying people.

There is no way to enforce the age limit.
Anyone can fake their age, and how will we know?

But some sites do enforce age limit...
I don't know, is there some law requiring such age limit?
Or is it completely optional?

Sanyu, regarding word filter, that's another topic...

Being single is cool. No worrying about anyone, no obligations and best of all, no heartaches. But
you know what? If you will never get your heart broken, you will never learn to love.
The best thing about loving and being hurt is that you get to know what true love really is. For as
gold is tested in fire, and so will love be perfected in pain.

I know some forums have in their sign up and terms of service, a link confirming you are
13 years OR UP as is a requirement by law, but I'm not sure of the actual law or its
details or jurisdiction.That's not much help, sorry :P
