Hi guys. I am here to present an important issue to our community. Would you define an TFOL as 13-18, or 13-20?

It is obvious that a teenager starts at the age of thirteen. But where does it end? 18, the legal age where you become an adult? Or 20, when there no longer is that "teen" at the end of your age?

Help us decide!

Vote on the poll, and argue for the point that you support.

Thanks for your help!

Ben Cool

NOTE: The poll will be run for 2 weeks, for maximum coverage on the forum. Thanks!

EDIT: It appears that the official ages according to our forum is 13-20.

13-18, of course. It's been like that for many years, and it's not gonna change... probably. :P

It's not of course, there are other places where they use the "13-20" rule. Just on MOCpages, for some reason, it has always been "13-18".

13-18. I think that's what it normally is, not just on MP, but in the community in general (Online and at conventions.)
Plus, it'll be cool to be an AFOL in a little over a year, though it will be sad to leave here...

13-20.

Reason: how do you define "adult"?
Old enough to drink? Americans aren't adults until they're 21.
Old enough to procreate without getting chucked in jail? New Zealanders have to leave at 16.
Old enough to have their own guns? See immediately above.
Old enough to leave home, marry, drink, and generally do whatever the frak they want without their parents having a legal say in the matter? See above, but change "16" to "18".

I say 13-20. All of the laws just fit with it. Otherwise, at 19, you wouldn't exactly be a TFOL or AFOL. That's confusing.

Im going to have to go with 13-20. Although, you never stop being a kid. My twenty four year old brother still has the sudden urge to build at random moments.

Personally, I think that 13-19 is the best, which is the standard range to be considered a teenager.

I say that at least lego-speaking, AFOLhood should start when the "-teen" ends, i.e. "nineteen" is the last TFOL year.

So, TFOL = 13 to 20.

There's a lolcat relating to that.
It has this really goofy looking grin on its face, and the caption says "Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is not."

If I were 19, I would be tried as an adult, but people would still refer to me as a teenager.

Jason Corelet said 13-20, so that will be my choice. He won the MOColympics anyways (if we don't count the rigged votes).

Well, I personally think it should be 13-20 because even at the age of 19 you are a "Teen". I really would like to know why you are an adult at the age of 18! Everything I have learned has explained why there is a you know "teen" sound at the end. so yeah, I think 13-20 is fair.

I really don't think this is a contest.

A TFOL is 13 through 19. Once you turn 20, you are in your twenties, not your teens. This is the way its been run on Teen LUG and Teen Lego for years, it we had no debate over it.

What contest?

Yes, 13-20 means that you would leave at age 20. OK, well it might've been that way there, but on MOCpages and a couple other places the majority count it as 13-18.

It's a figure of speech.


They're simply wrong. You're not an adult until you're 21, and you are still a teenager till you are 20. If 19 weren't a teen, it would go 17... 18... 20... 21.....

I still say that reaching the age of eighteen makes you an adult.

You're a conspiracy theorist. I saw that comment you made on Adam L's MOC about 9/11, and now you think that something as trivial as the MOColympics are rigged.

Yes, but reaching the age of eighteen does not make you a not-teen.

He's in the Illuminati. You know how those guys are; after you're involved in enough conspiracies, everything starts to look like one.

When the only tools you have are an airliner, an Al-Qaeda training camp and a doctored copy of the Koran, every problem looks like a skyscraper.
