Lately, we've had another influx -- we have them now and again -- of older adult users at the site and boards.

Just as a reminder, Scarleteen exists and is primarily intended for those under 25, and that is because for teens and college-age people, not only are there less resources for them online, but they don't tend to have the same agency or income older adults do when it comes to accessing other resources, like counseling, some healthcare, buying books, etc.

So, if you're here, please be sure your questions are those which would also be pertinent to users of younger ages, and that you recognize we are always going to privilege our younger users in terms of our time and energy. In other words, be sure you're steppin' aside for the young'uns. They come first. [Smile]

I also ask that older adult users consider donating to Scarleteen to help support the site so that we can continue to provide the kinds of services so vital for young people and, as you know as an adult also stopping by, for all people.

Our younger users often cannot fiscally support us, so they rely on those of us who are older to sustain these services for them. Thanks!
