Our guild requirement is 18. I'm not sure of the gm's original reasoning, but you definately notice a difference when raiding. I am well aware that these people what are left are have some great players, they are however nearly always slowing the raid by "afk, gotta take out the garbage" "afk, gotta have supper with the family" "sorry guys, can't stay up late" "gotta drive my sister somewhere"With our age requirement usually the most serious afk that we get in a night of raiding is "afk 10 secs to get a beer, go ahead and pull" and we skip alot of e-drama,

Certainly some kids are going to have this problem, but some won't. You could always ask the young person in question if they have a particular bedtime (or other issue that would require them to leave unexpectedly) rather than just assuming. If they do have such concerns, then fine. Some adults might have such issues too, and if so, they should receive the same consequences.

It's guilds like yours that make me often need to lie about my age on WoW. I am fully able to pull it off, and like to think of myself as a sign that younger players (I'm only 16) can be as mature as older ones. If no-one suspects that I'm under the age limit, then surely there's no harm, as that means that I'm acting as maturely as you'd expect someone over the age limit to be.I remember the first time when I revealed my real age on WoW to a few of my old guildies, and immediately I felt as though I was suddenly being zoned out. This to me is prejudice if I ever know it.As for the point being brought up about younger players having to leave the game more often, I could easily debate this. Surely anyone who has a life has had to leave a group early. If not, then I'm sorrily sad for them, as getting out of the game and having a social life is more important than getting to lvl 70. Indeed, the only reason I have ever left a group early is due to going out with friends, stuff which I've pre-organised and have made sure that the group was aware of.
