A teen no more

I'm not a teen anymore does that make me still being a member a bad thing?

Most of us here are 20. So, it doesnt matter.
Be a teen by heart. Thats enough.

Things have been set up here for a while such that it would be easy to start a non-age related site that uses the same user accounts as TPU and everything. There's even a domain for it, devlocus.org (The Software Development Locus), which currently now just houses documentation on the system that powers this site. With enough interested people and ideas on what would make this new site worth visiting, we could finally power it up, a few years after I had first planned to and given up on it. =)

I suggested it as well, me thinks. I still support the idea.

is age really the important? why not just keep this sight and let who ever join it? most of the people who know alot about programing technically arnt teens... so if they all go off to the other site...how is anyone going to get help on this one? anyways i don't really care that much..i can just go to the other site after all...but its just a point people should consider, take care,

If you are realy series about making a site for adult programmers, you could always just change the "T" in TPU to stand for something other than "Teen", like Top, Turbo, Talented (Ok, lame ideas, but you get the idea...)
But I dont realy see age as of much importance in this issue...

This has never been a strictly teen site... the "Teen" part more refers to the average skill level :-)

Good to see I'm not the only one here 20.

Well, I think TPU (with the T keeping its meaning) is important as, if nothing else, a social tool. It's definitely possible, and it's been planned before, to have almost everything else (such as the learning groups we are planning) moved to a non-age-specific site.

How about YAPU

If it weren't for my dislike of pronouncable acronyms ...
