Well I don't mind if children join my guild. The most required thing is mature behavior and the ability to work with others.

^^^^ This, as long as they're mature it shouldn't matter. A few years back one of the guilds I was in ( a casual family guild) were discussing different topics in guild chat and age came up, we each said our age all were over 18 except for one who stated she was 15, 2 seconds later you saw *(guild member name) was removed from guild* followed by the guild leader saying it was an adult only guild. The person kicked was very mature never begged for anything, if anything all she ever asked of the guild was if anyone wanted to quest with her ( I happened to be questing with her when she was kicked). I proceeded to apologize that she was kicked and gave her the reason the guild gave, and continued to quest with her. She took it well, she was very mature about it. She added me to her friends list and we'd quest together every once in a while.

My guild adopts a similar tact. If you're mature enough to not tip off anyone that you're five, then we really couldn't care less. Age does by no means determine skill or maturity, as I'm sure many of you can attest.

See, a lot of people go with the "mature behavior" as their criteria instead of age. But there are guilds out there like mine that even that doesn't work. We are an adult only guild, not because we have any innate issues with kids, but because we are Mature but wish to act immature.Our raids are a time of release from having to act like adults - so we ACT immature and we get vulgar - but we still get the job done.It's hard for kids to fit into this because most kids are either actually immature, or are mature and won't lower themselves to acting immature. Not to mention that in a very social guild, it's difficult for the kids to relate to the adults and vice-versa.

The most immature guilds I've been in put MATURE PLAYERS ONLY in big flashing neon signs on their guild sites. Things that make you say "HMMMMMM".;-P

My guild is a mature guild, and will accept people under the age of 16 on the condition that we are able to talk to their parents to make sure they understand what their child is being exposed to. (we judge age based on voice - I know its not perfect, but /shrug).So far, the only kid we have had to admit is the GM's son, and hes more mature than some of the 30 year olds in the guild.
