A fun educational site!

This is a great site, loved both by my kids and I. My daughter's writing has improved a lot since she joined, and my son's even more so. His English exam result was two whole grades above his last which was from an exam taken only a few months ago. This means that he now has a place at his preferred college whereas he might not have been able to get one before. I love my kids but their writing really wasn't great before. It sure is now though! I really can't say enough good things about Equinox. They've all been wonderful and the staff are so helpful and to be applauded for all the effort they go to to help their members.

Great for teens!

I was vry impressed with this site. It's educational and beautifully made, and rather than promoting products, or just the movies, or celebrity rumors, it promotes the development of creative writing in a very safe enviroment. The staff are always willing to help members out, as are many of the members. There is a page to explain the site to parents, and a way to contact the staff directly if you have any concerns. They also run a campaign along with another couple of sites which is aimed at promoting responsible journalism, as opposed to many other sites that I have seen my daughter visit which are covered what can only be described as trashy tabloid rumors. I have taken a look around the site myself and have found absolutely nothing innapropriate for my own daughter, who is currently thirteen.

Is It Any Good?

When was the last time you heard of teens competing for the most well-written story or the most paragraphs written? If the Twilight book series has inspired young readers to rack up more page time than screen time, then EQUINOX: THE INTERACTIVE TWILIGHT ROLE PLAYING GAME can be credited with getting young visitors to log in lots of creative writing time. With a dedicated administration that takes safety and Twilight authenticity very seriously, this site exists as a labor of love that has blossomed with the help of some very dedicated members. Some of the best features include the ability to jump from one "realistic" Twilight setting to another, an out-of-character chat feature and plenty of space to take a stab at fiction writing in a safe and supportive environment. The site has expertly moved the Twilight story into cyberspace, allowing members to float through Forks and mingle with the Volturi while adding new characters to the mix.

Online interaction: The site is highly interactive and users can do both role playing and "out of character" chatting on the site.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
