I'm not exactly sure how i feel about it.
But i can understand the guilds like AGA, they want a more adult member base where adults can talk about well, adult life.
It's not sexual, it's not gross stuff.. but just a meeting of mature minds.
Considering I joined Gaia when I was 26... in fact, Gaia never existed before I was in my twenties.
Not really. Most of the adult guilds are kind of crappy, to be honest. One of them I actually just left because it was basically a game and RP guild... but for adults.
There's another which is a bit better, but you've got to be over 30 to join that one wink
I kind of prefer that one, more because I actually do find it harder these days to relate to new adults. I mean, people 18-19 have completely different lives to the one I have. Even early twenties, most people are entering college or the like. It's a whole different world and as I've gotten older it's been harder to relate on that level.
I am actually a co-captain of one of the larger 18+ guilds( maybe it was ours you were looking at?*points to signature*)..
To answer some questions about a guild like ours.
Is its 18+ content? No, not in the sense most think of(porn, graphic words, etc). Most of our guild threads that are adult content, discuss things like, work, family,raising kids, and other common interest many adults have that younger gaians might not.
Why the need for an 18+ guild? Well why the need for any guild, to share a common interest with others and feel like you have a safe haven on Gaia. Many of our users are in the 30's, 40's and 50's...I've even met one member of an 18+ guild im also part of who is in her 80's. Many of these older users can feel uncomfortable being around a younger users because once they reveal their age in conversation the mood automatically changes. They are thought to be too old for Gaia.
I myself am 30(31, tomorrow! birthday FTW!!!), and I originally sought out the guild, not only for common interests, but also for mature intellectual discussions. I find that I come across less text talk, leet speak, and just a general better amount of content that is "readable" in a post.
And for the record I'm not saying everyone under 18 can't hold an intelligent conversation or create a descent looking post. Just as I can't say everyone over +18 can, but it is a more likely
Edit: if you have any specific questions about the guild please feel free to ask here or through PM.
I miss being a kid :C For me its not so amazing being an adult, I miss my fun childhood. Had its issues but was a lot more carefree and much more fun XD
You are still a kid inside
your body just grows
like nails do
or beards xd
Yeah but your life doesn't care if you're a kid inside you get stuck with adult responsibilities evil
Give it time !! yes, you must have certain responsibilities, but you'll also discover new freedoms and interests that can be really amazing. And, you'll be ablr to do things you decide you want to do. maybe, even discover you'll find the work you love, so you'll love to work.And, then, even find a life partner to share the wonders.. Life is full of stages. Each with it's own special rewards.
Look for the joy!!!!
It's been awhile, but someone I knew once had a guild and the users were cybering and when I reported it,
I was told it was up to the Guild owner to handle it, and the owner supported it, so it just went over looked.
Gaia was also listed as a top cyber site once not too long ago on a forum, so I don't think staff always pays attention.
I can't find the site that listed it now, but my fiance and I were just laughing about it the other day.
I remember those days. Yeah I was in a lot of the 18 to 21+ guilds and I used to go into those chat rooms back when we could name the rooms in Fishing, Slots, and Cards. Basically, they were called that because we actually wanted to talk about things from our childhood without people going wats dats or OMG your all old farts or whatever. It's kind of pain when you want to talk about boy bands of the 90's but everyone else is talking about Justin Breber or who ever the current teen idol is. emo
