Young Chowhounds: Attn: Chowhound Team

My daughter has been with me checking the boards, and is interested in having her own Chowhound handle.
The question: Is there an age limit? She is 14. She is, self-described, passionate about food and eating.
Is there room on the Chowhound site for this, or shall we just post together?
Thanks, and thank you for a great site.
I'll give you a buck if you can discern any of our ages on this board simply by what we type.
I say let her have her own handle. I suggest taking Apollo_14 as a moniker.
I think it will suit her well. BTW, I'm only twelve. (ahem, twelve times pi, plus a few more).
re: The Chowhound Team
To amend this statement - we do have a lower age limit for participation. It's 13, in keeping with US regulations related to gathering information from children on the internet. Please see our Terms of Service for more information: http://www.chowhound.com/home/terms
In this case, though, the young Hound is 14, so we can welcome them to participate.
re: Dave Feldman
As soon as we are able to do the necessary canoodling with our existing controls to get the young pup signed up, she'll be on - and probably talking about nature v. nurture.
It's great to see a kid all wired for something they can take into the rest of their life, like food, versus, say, oh gads, I don't even have a reference!
Thanks (on behalf of both of us) for the kind reception for teens.
Thank heavens this is NOT a creepy site!
