18+ forum

Post by geardawg on January 1st 2009, 3:49 am

Last topic LOCKED bwi

Anyways, there should be a way to lock a forum to persons under 18. Let's say you have a spam forum. Of course, someone's going to post something suggestive, like 4chan's '/b/' (except it's not locked but still labeled 18+).

For this to be enabled, you would just check the setting under permissions on the desired forum/category. All members under 18 and guests would NOT have access to the forum, while members over 18 would have the permission to browse that forum.

I don't know if this would violate the ToS, but I'll re-read over it and edit this, unless the ToS could be changed, which might not happen, but still, this feature would be nice, especially to some users on my board... AAHHEMM Tornadic

Well, members can lie about their ago, you know, like a couple of people I know. So that idea drops down.

Lie about ego? I'm not understanding. It's just and 18+ forum for user over 18+, not exactly the 'PR0Nz' stuff.

I voted no as well. Age faking is a priority here as many members have stated.

I think would be a handy feature, but would never work, I am therefore voting no.

You'd probably be surprised at how many people fake their age on registration, and this is one of the problems that very little can be done about. For example; I am always going through people's profiles on different forums, and see quite often, a users that have their age ninety nine or something like that. Not that older people can't register on forums, but I don't believe for a second that some of these people are the age that they claim to be.

Make a group, place members in this group that are over 18 and set a forum to only be able to be read by that group.

Takes only a couple of clicks by an admin when a member registers.

Plus, others are right, people can lie about their ages.

So voted no by me also.

Administration Panel -> Users & Groups -> Users Options -> Birthdays

Then set the minimum user age to "18" and there you go: an 18+ forum.

Also, like the other users said, anybody can fake their age to get in the forum.

I think this wouldn't be a bad idea

Kids want to lie about their age? Not my problem when they get shocked or whatever

I sometimes feel it bothersome to not be able to have proper threads concerning what is typically called "18+" issues

True, kinda cancels out the age lying thing other users are talking about.

Exactly my purpose of suggesting this.

People will just lie about their age anyways. So why do something like this if people are going to lie.

Sorry, but I vote no. Members can just change their age to 18 and gain access to the forum, so it wouldn't work from my point of veiw.

already possable by:
age restriction,
"members only" forums

Why would you need to do this anyways?????

anyways, you can "fake" your age to see "inappropriate" things
There is soo mnay things i want to say, however i am going to withhold them because they can be called "nasty" to some people.

For the above reasons(and those already posted by fellow members) I am hereby voting NO!

YOUR PIE, GENTLEMEN.

Anyways, I guess I'll just make a forum saying 18+, you click it, another forum saying 'Warning' or something.

MODS = MODS. CLOSE THIS
