    Anyone can be a good forum runner, but more often than not it's doesn't turn out that way. That simple..

    I think they can :)
    I was only 14-15 when I started my first forum and it did quite well (80k posts, 2k members)

    It all depends on how mature they are and if they can dedicate the time needed to make their forum successful.

    I think there are definitely issues with people younger than 13 running forums, it kind of shoots COPA in the eye

    God damn, COPPA completley screwed up the internet. Sure, sure, kids shouldn't be allowed on porn websites ect. but do they really need to ban them from every sports website and fun website?

    As to the Admin deal, sure children can be good Admins, they just need to learn to stay under control, and have good funding.

    I am 13, and my forum has been successful so far. I think yes, but it depends on who the person is. I hate when someone just stereotypes and says because I am 13 I suck at forums.

    I agree with you about COPPA, it is a total waste of time but hey, what can you do?
