This was an idea that just occurred to me the other day, but maybe we could set up a new section of the forum for kids who need help with fish tanks? I noticed that a lot of the newcomers here seem to be <13, and since they can't buy their own stuff and might need more patience, it might be nice to have a forum dedicated just to kids and tweens. What are your guys's thoughts?

Its a nice idea but from a safeguarding point of view having a section that specifically singles out children is probably not a great plan.
very true. There might be a way to make it safe, like maybe having a thing ask for age when you sign up? but idk if that's foolproof

Really? That young? I thought they were teens.

There are a lot of children in the Forum and you just need to get used to it. ;)

An inability to buy stuff, a lack of patience, together with an inability to learn are not characteristics unique to children.

If there was a new section, specifically for children, I can guarantee you that not one of them would stick to it and they'd continue to post elsewhere in the Forum.
