    In European Jailbreak servers, I have noticed a recent influx of younger children. While I don't usually have an issue with this, the majority of these kids are extremely immature and don't respect other players. Obviously, they help fill the servers and somewhat build the community, but they tend to disrupt the game when things don't go their way. Obviously this doesn't apply to everyone, but I think its an issue. It has been suggested that younger players should be prevented from using Voice Comms for this reason, and I agree with the idea, which would constitute restrictions being implemented for players who act immaturely and disregard others.

    EDIT: Many people think it is "they are a squeaker, INSTANT MUTE" no, what i'm saying is that generally there is an issue with younger children can disrupt the game by being immature.

    There's a rule that states "only use a mature voice" when you join the server. However, there still aren't enough Mutes for immature voices (only about 100 on SourceBans). It's not made clear enough what "having a mature voice" counts as though, so I think:

    Squeaker=Automatic Mute.

    EDIT: While it's not necessary, it might also be a decent idea to keep swearing to a minimum. It might be a bad idea due to the amount of people on Flux I know who love swearing, but it might be a half decent option until people learn to behave and not mass disrespect with swearing. "Cunt" should be a banned word, though.

    I count as squeaker so I get muted

    And I don't think restricting swearing is a good idea because sometimes people get a bit angry when they die or something. I think it could be restricted if it is directly targeted at someone in a hateful manner

    Since when does age make you a bad person you shared their age once and as long as they are not breaking a rule there is no need to punish them imagine someone banning you because Flux.tf is 18+ only if you want an example of a person younger and still more matture then most people here look at Adam if you have problems with a small number of people like you said you can always report them instead of making a witchhunt for people younger then you.This is the internet stop taking yourself so serious.

    "Using a mature voice" doesn't necessarily constitute "having gone through puberty" it mainly means not to scream like a retard.

    There will be no automatic muting of people just because they sound young. If they are breaking rules, as with any other player, call an admin, or record and report.

    THIS IS WHAT I WANTED TO BE A THING. In the first place, kids younger than 12 shouldn't play games like tf2
