What age is appropriate for these tf2 categories?
1.Mic usage
2.chat usage
3.gameplay in general
4.Your age, and do you honestly think you are able to play without slight shame or discrimination?

I would say any age for all, As long as your respectful and nice.

And I am 24 years old. Probably no shame or discrimination at this age...

1. depends if you are like most under 12 and scream in the mic and say silly things. I have seen well behaved 10 year olds on mics.

2. Any age if you are respectful and don't insult others

3. Any age I don't think TF2 even with its mature rating is very bad for anybody. I am young and female and enjoy TF2. I changed my blood to stars with a mod :P

4. I won't say my age but its under 16. I don't use mic much anymore because last time I used it I got abuse.

1. Mic usage is mostly seen to be a thing for people but I've met some well mannered and nice 12 year olds
2.almost any age, because there is less judgment and they can have a bit more of a voice...ironically
3.same as chat, but a bit lower maybe??
4.16, on the verge of 17. So I think I slide right in to the 'ok' category.

1.15, just because most people will hate a 12 year old just because they're 12.
2.Any age really, just stay respectful
3.Probably the same as #2
4.I'm 16, hopefully their isn't to much hate for that.

1. 13
2. chat doesn't bother anybody
3. rated H for hats
4. 15, no, I will not stop promoting hats.

I don't care what age you are as long as your competant (and if you're using voice chat your voice can't sound like a chihuaua in an ice chipper). I'm old enough to be paranoid enough that I'm not saying my age. I don't even tell Steam that.

1. Depends upon the community. Some are gentler and more kid-friendly than others, others are definitely not.

2. Depends upon the community. See above. That said, most people aren't going to be paying much attention to chat unless they're dead at the time or waiting for the round to start.

3. Eh, quite low. The gameplay itself is extremely cartoonish. Bugs Bunny wasn't much more peaceful, really; plenty of explosives, gunfire, and falling-off-cliffs. This isn't a "gritty" game by any means, nor are there 'adult themes' e.g narcotics trafficking, human smuggling, prostitution, or anything else likely to turn a wee lad into a hard-eyed cynic proto-drug-lord.

4. Let's just say that I meet all the legal qualifications to be President of the United States.

90% of the time I don't care what they sound like, as long as they are helpfull and nice.
1.14
2.any
3.13
4.15. Yes, I play just fine. No one says anything because I'm nice and helpfull. Also Everyone things I'm 18, I sound like it.
A lot of people are suprised that I'm 15. Again I don't sound like it. Also I've got a big steam account with lots of games. Most kids my age don't play on PC.

Notable example: how all the lotus servers have the LIVE NUDES tag.

and I'm in civs and econ, so I understand you are pretty old to meet that stuff.

1. That usually varies on the community or server you're on, as well as the people playing.

2. It's really useful. Everyone should use it, especially if it's a team based server

3. I'd say about Pre-Teen. I've heard worse dialogue in high schools. Gameplay wise, while the gibs can push it beyond the pre-teen limit, can be changed. Even if they aren't changes, they aren't that bad. But, that's just my personal opinion.

4. I'm 19, and no, I don't. The whole being female thing might confuse people, but I really don't give two ♥♥♥♥♥.

I have had a lot of friend requests and some very strange people, for example one guy asked me everyday if my feet smell? how creepy :(

1.Mic usage: I would say around 14. I make my little brother turn off voice chat when he plays because I have heard people say some bad things to him KNOWING his age.
2.Chat Usage: Anyone can use the chat.
3.gameplay in general: I'm not really sure why TF2 is rated M, but I treat it as an E10 game. So I would say maybe 10.
4. 16, and sure.
Medicus Qui Mar 12 @ 10:15pm 
1. 16
2. 14
3. 12
4. 12

1: Depends on if the user is an immature dufus who annoys everyone to death, but I would say 13 as a GENERAL rule. Still, younger people can be cool IF they realize them having a young voice is annoying, and try not to ♥♥♥♥ people off.

2: Any age, especially if it helps the kids learn to spell. Plus nobody cares about text chat in general.

3: 10, no younger...honestly video games and tv for youth are used way too much, and especially with online interactions, its just asking for trouble. Letting a young kid online is like letting a child into a bar to chat with anyone there, you NEVER know what hes going to hear.

4: 23, I have no problem playing this. I like the tactics / class balance for the most part.

1. I'm fine with any age as long as the person doesn't yell a lot or just say a bunch of useless stuff. And I'm fine with people just chatting with others while playing.

2. Any age, I don't really care what you type in chat, if you're using it to be helpful to the team or just chatting with people, I'm fine with both.

3. Same as before, unless you're like really young, like less then 13.

4. I'm 19 so I don't have any shame playing, and people don't usually have a problem with me since I just use voice commands and chat to communicate. (I do have a mic, but I don't really like to talk a lot. I'm more comfortable just typing what I want to say.)
