    When the membership team recently clarified the range of membership ages with access to each discussion board there were concerns raised about minors viewing some content posted within forums restricted to the public. The executive team discussed this issue and have decided to raise the minimum age for some membership levels. The minimum age to become a Citizen will remain 13. The minimum age to join the Tower as a Novice or Recruit will be raised to 16. The minimum age to be raised to Accepted or Soldier will be increased to 18. We do not believe this will impact any current members, but please contact @Alenya Al'Roran if you are affected by this policy change.


    We believe this is an important change to enable candid conversations within the private membership forums, but are also very concerned that we continue to foster content that engages new, younger members. Many of us began reading The Wheel of Time when we were younger than 16, and we want to be sure new fans to the books, or new fans to the tv show in the future, can join us and enjoy content in the more public areas of the forums. One example is the idea of bringing back the guilds, and we’ll be asking for your feedback on this idea in the upcoming membership survey.
