personaly, its up to the creators of the site to make the age limit, if they want 18 just let them do what they want. Just going to have to wait if your to young, however in the years you have to wait you can use that time to make armor that could look Movie quality for all i know. so it if you are under age, then use the time wisely to practice you armor making skills.
i personally say 18 because ive had to wait this long to join the 501st and plus kids who are 16 will buy stuff, join then lose interest. at least by 18 you have some of your priorities sorted out.......when i say 16 year olds i mean in general, not all of them
I like 16, but unfortunately, some boys and girls are not mature enough even at this age.
Honestly look at the pros and cons of being 16:
-I can join the 405th two years early
-I will be able to drive (in most states)
-Any group I am affiliated with will be held accountable for my actions.
-I am not legally an adult, so therefore cannot travel without adult consent.
-16 year olds cannot rent hotel rooms (for stay at conventions), once again, only an adult (18yrs. old +) can do this.
-At 16 years old, I'm more prone to prove that I am cooler than the star wars nerds (sorry Fitzs). Meaning that I might not be mature enough to turn my cheek to confontation.
I mean, there's good and bad. I voted 16 to keep the masses happy.
I personally have no problem waiting till I'm 18 to join. The more time, the merrier. :mrgreen: My elite costume will look awesome if I have a whole year to complete it and that sorta thing.
