It’s sweet and kind that you add this here. It’s always a good idea to keep those numbers around. Thanks!

@J.C, the information provided is welcomed and hopefully will be of use to those who would benefit from it. It appears that this post is for the northern portions of North America. For those in other areas of the globe, is similar information available that would be local to that area? If not can that be reasonably done?

Wow the amount of respect for your company has just gone up from me.

Hey PaulJWA-NB, this is why we included a link to a website that has already accumulated international numbers. They index these numbers and resources by country so our global community has somewhere to turn, not just people in North America.

wow…been in game forums for years…literally, this is the first time i’ve seen this issue addressed in a game forum…but, especially with young players, these are very real issues, and I applaud the mods for addressing it so clearly.
