Gabrielle Greenleaf: Not only is it against forum rules to beg like that, but it's highly unlikely anyone would give you an account with SR and SCs. Why not get a job and earn some cash to buy SC and SR on your own? Apr 25, 2019 13:12:45 GMT 10
Gabrielle Greenleaf: Also, if you'd be so kind as to use any punctuation, it'd make reading what you say a little easier. Apr 25, 2019 13:18:33 GMT 10 *
Seryth: While I do agree with you that it's against the rules, if this person is within SSO's target audience age group (which it seems they may be based on how their post was written), getting a job at that age is a bit difficult. Apr 25, 2019 22:06:55 GMT 10 *
Gabrielle Greenleaf: They could babysit. I've heard of kids within that age range babysitting and earning spending money that way Apr 25, 2019 22:11:18 GMT 10
Gabrielle Greenleaf: or perhaps saving up an allowance Apr 25, 2019 22:11:29 GMT 10
Gabrielle Greenleaf: I had around $200 saved up by the time I was 12 Apr 25, 2019 22:12:13 GMT 10
Seryth: Your suggestions are good, but we can't assume that every child has the same opportunities that we had and that other children currently have. And we can't assume that every child's parents are going to be ok with them spending real money on pixels. Apr 25, 2019 22:21:43 GMT 10
Seryth: Again, not agreeing with them asking for an account. I just think that telling someone (especially a child if that's the case) to get a job is a bit harsh considering that we don't know their situation. Apr 25, 2019 22:22:41 GMT 10
reneedarkbard: Guys, please be respectful of other people. Especially since we can't assume what their current situation is. Thanks :) Apr 26, 2019 3:08:26 GMT 10
reneedarkbard: As someone has mentioned, please don't beg for accounts! We don't allow that Apr 26, 2019 3:10:15 GMT 10
reneedarkbard: Another thing just to add. I've been looking for a job for months and haven't found anything. Getting a job is a lot harder in some economies and countries. Plus, because I'm older, I don't receive an allowance. Sometimes what may be clear to us isn't... Apr 26, 2019 3:13:07 GMT 10
reneedarkbard: ...the same for someone else because of their circumstance. Apr 26, 2019 3:13:10 GMT 10 *
Willow Deerblanket: If I may add, it wouldn't be wise to discuss any sort of financial situations either. This can make others feel uncomfortable or even make them very upset. Just because one person is able to save # amount of money doesn't mean you need to state such, it's Apr 26, 2019 4:38:41 GMT 10
Willow Deerblanket: very rude and ignorant. Apr 26, 2019 4:39:03 GMT 10
Autumn Lionsong: I know I had an allowance as a kid, and sometimes i could do extra chores to get some money. But that doesn't always mean a kid can spend money on this sort of thing. My parents didn't let me sign up for things like this, because they wanted me to learn Apr 26, 2019 5:51:38 GMT 10
Autumn Lionsong: how to save and manage my money. Apr 26, 2019 5:51:44 GMT 10
Autumn Lionsong: And I also wanted to say I agree with Willow - it's pretty rude to brag about financial things, even if the intention wasn't to brag. Apr 26, 2019 5:53:26 GMT 10
Gabrielle Greenleaf: I'm not being rude or ignorant when I say what I had as a kid. I'm merely stating that it's possible to have a bit of money saved up at that age. My older brother had a paper route and earned around $50 a month doing that when he was 12-13. Apr 26, 2019 6:17:53 GMT 10
Gabrielle Greenleaf: I'm just saying that sometimes as a kid, we aren't as financially helpless as we think we are. Apr 26, 2019 6:18:41 GMT 10
reneedarkbard: I think it's best if this discussion is dropped! :) Apr 26, 2019 7:34:45 GMT 10
