I realize that Stack Exchange sites accommodate a variety of people, whether they are professional or enthusiast contributors, whether they are 13 or >60.

But does SE have encouragement strategies specifically for younger contributors?

(IE: teaching these new users how to contribute to SE sites, from their age perspective.)

  • My question was aimed towards educating younger users rather than the legal obligations of the elder SE users/moderators. Editing shall be required :) – edition Aug 25 '14 at 9:43

About the official police a community manager can tell you more, but take a look at the site list. It goes from Academics, to Parents and grandparents and even young people (just a joke, no offense).

SE is for everyone. Not a specific culture, age, faith, or anything else. There is no specific policy to allow or encourage a specific age group.

As an active member on SO I see a broad variety of people. Usually we need to educate new people, but that doesn't strictly relate to age, more to the way they are used to interact. I don't think we have to educate different ages differently based on my experience.

    Not me, but the answer doesn't give much information. Might be better only as a comment. – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Aug 25 '14 at 9:55

    On what does it need more info? The question is does SE have encouragement strategies specifically for younger contributors. The answer is no. The proof is in the list of sites. – Patrick Hofman Aug 25 '14 at 9:55

    Dunno, I find it on the gray zone - fair answer, not great and not bad - others have different opinions. – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Aug 25 '14 at 9:57

    so to conclude, SE sites are fully inclusive, regardless of age, so guidelines are not required since the Q/A format rules are easily understood by everyone? – edition Aug 25 '14 at 10:58

    @edition Not everyone, no. But not specific groups of people that can reasonably be identified and helped. – bjb568 Aug 25 '14 at 14:06
