Welcome to The Cool Kids also referred to as TCK. While most of our users aren't actually children, we are all kids at heart. We can use a place to wind down and relax and a way to engage with other people in order to make those important friendships This forum is a pretty general discussion forum. We have a little bit of everything and plan to add some extra things in the future as people show interest. We plan to host some fun contents for site currency and items so be on the look out for those announcements. Welcome to TCK!

If you have any questions, please reach out to us through the Questions, Ideas & Suggestions forum.
