MeFi/AskMe for Teens

Are there any good-quality "MeFi" or "AskMe" or even general net-community sites for teenagers?, he asks, hoping that asking several questions in the space of a week isn't considered overuse of AskMe.

You are using clumsy english, it's hard to understand what you are trying to ask.

Or, rather, where are the good-quality teen sites?

Fark... which I consider to be the immature version of Metafilter. Perfect for teens.

clumsy english? whatever dude. I think it's pretty easy to read.

Sort of on topic, isn't there an unwritten guideline that says only 1 question a week? that being said, I don't find and problems with 2-3 questions a week, if they're good. you could also ask someone else to post for you

Well, that's part of my hope. I made sure that sleep apnea was going to be something affecting a large enough part of the population to likely prove interesting. My live rock question was just asinine stupidity on my part, and I'm forever sorry I gapped out.

Anyway, back to teens.

Well, ages ago when I was a teen and anything could get dot-com funding, I met some interesting people through www.bolt.com ... however, I'm not sure if that site exists any longer, and when I went to check it, I got a MS SQL error.

Are you looking for moderated sites here, or just sites which appeal to teenagers?

Either. Just sites that are (a) more or less "safe", as in they're not going to be flooded with porn or drug talk; (b) interesting enough to be worth seeing; (c) hopefully with some chance of having a "community" like we have here.
