Will the 18 yr old requirement be removed from Mormon.org?

I went to make a Mormon.org account today, and noticed you need to be 18 to create one.

Is that requirement going to be removed at some point? Or, is youth.lds.org going to become a place where youth may create profiles (just like mormon.org)? If so, any idea as to when?

No idea. The church doesn't typically communicate that ahead of time.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

I noticed on youth.lds.org it says that "coming soon" is a way to post your testimony online. This is different than making a profile. It will be interesting to see how the youth.lds.org site continues to evolve.

It's interesting that the ability to post your testimony is now "coming soon." That was a capability of youth.lds.org about a month or so ago -- I know, because a couple of my children actually posted some testimonies there. It was topic-oriented, so you could share your testimony on tithing, or modesty, or any of many options for topics. I wonder why they disabled it?
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Interestingly, looking more closely you can still the launch the "testimony wall" seen here:

https://beta.lds.org/youth/for-the-stre ... locale=eng

but here

https://lds.org/youth?lang=eng

it's still "coming soon."

I guess that's why the call it "beta"...

FYI--I just tried doing it again, and now I can set up a profile on mormon.org. I guess the rules have changed.

According to the training we got in our region, they have lowered the age to 14.
