Age Restrictions for forumotion forums

Post by † Amnz † on September 3rd 2016, 1:40 am

I'm going to leave this here as a suggestion since this was my earlier question which was answered. I'm an adult member and I got tired of going to these sites run by kids for kids. So I had decided to make my own with free forumotion! Working the forum maker was great and easy, but I found out too late that you have no way to restrict the users who try to join who might be under-aged for a more adult role play (adult as in fun story based threads that may have blood and gore, adult acts or themes, and bad words in them... NOT specifically a uhh.. forum about the three letter word starting with S. lol)

Sooo, if forumotion had a way to restrict the users who join by using their ages then I wouldn't have to leave forumotion to go to a competitor forum making site. Nor would I have to advertise to people that you can't make adult forums using forumotion.

Easy way to do this? maybe just make them put their birth date in during registration, and if they are under the legal adult age of their country 18 for the U.S. then the forum brings up a page saying that they are refused and automatically bans anyone form joining who is using their computers IP address.

If you guys do add this I'll gratefully come back over, just send me an e-mail when you add this feature (if it is added or not), and even if you refuse it still send me a message so I know not to come back. My website specific address is teranaysia@gmail.com

Hi there, there is already a way to restrict the age that goes into your forum by simply alternating the birthday requirement. It will deny them access if they are too young by the date they entered, but it won't ban them.

Yeah but if they don't put their birthdate in (because it doesn't force them to) then they can still view all of the forums despite the age restriction on there. I know I tried doing that and messing around with it all day.

Even if you can restrict them, this is the internet. Anybody can simply fake an age.

Yes you can fake an age, but at least then you have some security with the rules in place and the restriction working so that if a problem comes up you may be able to avoid being blamed by police or parents for child idk showing bad things to children.

It's understandable and I know where you are coming from, but Forumotion TOS doesn't allow that stuff regardless of what age restriction you place on the forum.

Ah so it's an entire forumotion thing to not do this. Okay so a free forum making site strictly for kids I get it. Then I guess there's no way for me to stay then since I'm looking to rp regular story stuff with older members. Since the adult kind of forum is not doable then this suggestion can probably be deleted.

Also not meaning to come off offensive or mean or anything Draxion I appreciate your help and understanding. Gotto go to the store now guys. See you later maybe.

You need to understand that it is best to create a forum that everyone can use. The reason why is that your forum can be ban if someone sends a litigation report. Since you say adult role-playing forum, it sounds like you are walking a fine line. Rule of thumb for creating a forum: create content that is 13 friendly.

That's the thing I don't want to have a forum where young 10 year olds can get onto it. I want to rp with friends without having my characters keep form saying words that they would be saying in character with their personalities. It goes against creativity in the long run when you are constantly forcing yourself to stay within certain limits. This is all that I was saying.

It's clear though that this won't be happening here. So I will go elsewhere. Smile Thank you for answering me in such a timely manner. You guys are awesome.

You can just call your forum 'ADULTSONLY-RP' or whatever or make everyone read the rules and add like a rule thats like: 'Only people of the legal adult age are allowed to join' blah blah blah and just make sure everyone obeys or it something like that

Or just state in your username, idek don't ask me

These are just suggestions.
You can try them if you really don't want 10 year olds on your forum.
