To be blunt: the plan on finds is to keep them here, and if an under 18-year-old wants to post, they just can't. Okay, before you all crucify me for that, hear me out:
There are two kinds of "Finds" that are posted here. The first kind is the kind that should be posted to the front page: chain-wide announcements, web site deals, etc. These finds are those that are worth a front-page post because most everyone can benefit from it. That kind of deal should be PM'd to me or emailed to staff to make it to the front page. The second kind is the kind that should be left in the forums: store-specific deals. Hear me out on this: only adults with cars and disposable income can be expected to scour every target in a 50-mi radius to buy clearance LEGO and then report. A kid won't. Kids, especially those under 16 who are too young for a driver's license, don't have much to offer to a find's forum but everything to gain. Since they have nothing to offer, they don't need posting rights--reading rights will suffice.
Where should finds go: here. Why isn't it in the name? Because the staff and I don't need every under 18 year old user crying about no posting rights when they don't have anything to post. Makes sense?
Recap: Post finds here!
