Is there an age limit on Stardoll?
I've always thought about if there was an age I "should," or "have to" quit Stardoll.
Is Stardoll a game for little girls? At first appearance- yes, it is. But those of us who have delved deeper into Stardoll: mainly the artistic scene such as magazines, blogs, and user made fashion lines, have realized it's a bit more complicated and more adult generated than the average 8 year old's site. After all, can an young child really create and manage the high tech and graphic complicated sites we present to each other?
If the answer to that is no, does that mean Stardoll has matured to a more adult friendly site, and if not adult, to a site where the minimum age should be moved to, atleast, 12? If so, does this mean, the so-called "termination age"- or, the age where an adult should be "too old for a paper doll site"? Does this mean somebody going to college or higher education of any sort, or perhaps, graduated and looking for a job, or even having a job (and children, maybe) should not be on Stardoll?
Before we argue this point: let me ask you, if you were browsing on Stardoll and you found a user with an amazing doll (all the rares, beautiful suite, accomplished blog), but then found out they were a mother of 4 children and 40 years old, would you treat this user differently than if you knew this user was 16 years old?
I guess what I'm asking is: does age really make a difference? Comment and let us know! I'll be posting the best comments in a follow-up post.
