    Hello,

    This is a complaint that I am filing (well, not really), because one has to be 18 (I believe) to work as a SitePoint Community Advisor. I speak out against this! Actually, I was just wondering what the reasons are behind this. I almost thought about signing up anyway, but I didn't want to be banned for life.

    Anyways, please explain. It would be much appreaciated.

    SitePoint, on the advice of legal counsel, chose 18 because of child labor laws. Even though these are unpaid volunteer positions, Advisors could still be considered employees. So, SitePoint is following legal advice.

    If you do a search, you can find lots of threads about this. I'm going to close this one, because we don't need this debate again.
