It is our goal to provide a safe place for people as young as 13 years of age to visit while online.
The game itself is rated PG, but we encourage parents of people under the age of 13 to look over the game and ensure it is alright for their child to play.
If you are reading this, it is probably because you are a concerned parent worrying about the safety of your child while he or she is online. We at EN take online safety very seriously. Moderators patrol the website in search of content that could be potentially harmful or in poor taste for children. Suspicious users (those who exhibit signs of potentially being a stalker or sexual predator) are flagged and watched by the moderators. In our effort to maintain a safe environment for children, moderators watch closely for cyberbullying, swearing, cheating, and scamming. Moderators keep in contact with eachother through various methods including forums, cell phones, and voice chatting software. This allows the moderators to quickly deal with any issues that may arise. In addition to this, the moderators have the ability to call Paradigm Programming LLC (the company that owns EN) to quickly deal with the more serious issues.
If you still have concerns regarding your child's safety while on EN, we encourage you to sign on and check out the game for yourself :)Upgrades and Buyer Bucks
We do encourage members to upgrade their accounts as this directly supports EN and allows us to further maintain and develop the game. As a parent, you are probably very hesitant about spending your money online and who you are sending your money to. We do all transactions through a secure third-party called PayPal. You provide your payment information to PayPal, then the specified amount is transferred from you to Paradigm Programming LLC. We never see your bank account information. Your child's account will be automatically credited with the Buyer Bucks. If there is a problem with a payment, we will work with you to resolve the issue. Contact us as soon as possible (via Paradigm's website) to ensure a speedy response.
EN is free to access and play for an unlimited period of time. However, not all features are available to free accounts. If you would like to purchase an upgrade for your child, you do so through a Buyer Bucks system. Basically, this means you add money to your child's EN account (at an exchange rate of about $1 USD to 1 Buyer Buck [there is a $1 fee on every payment, though]) and your child then trades those buyer bucks for either upgrade time or other in-game perks.
Games such as EN can provide a great outlet for children so long as they are played in moderation. Some parents find creating a reward system for good grades and behavior is a great way to keep their child on track. EN can easily be incorporated into such a system if your child enjoys his or her time here. We typically offer seasonal sales (around spring, fall, and Christmas time) which coincide with most school semester schedules.
EN is family-oriented. We encourage people to learn from eachother, share real world knowledge, and provide a welcoming environment.
We have moderators to enforce our rules and protect children from inappropriate content.
We have built-in swear filters to help prevent a majority of bad language from entering the site.
