    what are the chances of getting a forum for people 18+?

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I didn't find anything in a search.

    it's just a thought, and I know this is a fantasy forum, but a 18+ part with of course access to only people who ask and prove they are 18+ to gain access, will be a load of fun.

    how would people prove that they are over 18 years old?
    any online system like that is bound to be abused within moments - also my experiences of such sections is that they can quickly get rather risky and even end up abusive and fall apart (someone makes a more than mature joke then someone disagrees then its a fight -- rinse and repeat process)

    yep, you can always click that you're 18+, but that does not mean that you are.

    An 18+ section seems kind of pointless. I don't see what the aim of it would be.

    I hope there's nothing you can't say that you want to in the Old Folks Home thread. :D

    But yeah, it would be kind of worthless. So easy to fake a birthday. So unless they start requiring scans of our driver's licenses...

    I never understood why you wouldn't be able to talk whatever you want in front of children.
    Ahh maybe i'm too liberal >.>

    That is why you're a negative force in society.

    Can I ask exactly what you planned to do in that forum that you wouldn't do in the rest of the forum? IMO, the mods are pretty lenient here about behavior.

    Buncha creepers. How about an Indy forum? Where only I am allowed to post. That's the best route.

    If I can ban you from posting in any other forum, sure.

    Alex is this because you might get drunk again and start posting random messages about how awesome it is to have the name ALEX? I personally love the name but that's just me.

    possibly lol :D

    nah I just thought it would be a bit of fun that's all, plus if anyone lies about their age at least the forum is covered because they asked.. like game sites that ask for your age, they take no responsibility for people who lie. Other forums I've been to, even fantasy forums have an adults only part they have to ask admins to get permission to access and its a barrel of laughs.

    And listen to JET he knows a mans needs like I :p

    No 18+ section. Not even entertaining the idea. Case closed, that is all.
