Age Info?

I have read a few posts this week from young aquarists. While everyone is usually very friendly and supportive I believe they may have answered a bit differently if they had been aware of the persons age.

Have you ever considered requiring age or year of birth info when setting up a user and displaying that as part of a signature?

10g Mystery Snail Nursery

5g Plant grow tank with Pink Ramshorn Snails

That is a requirement already. All forum ask for dob to register. You can make the setting in CP to show your birthday or year or hide it in your profile.

I haven't seen inappropriate posts. I have seen responses that I believe would have been different if the age of the questioner were more prominent.

Most youth who aren't of adult age shouldn't be promoting their young age anyway. Yes, it is true many responses might be different if others knew the ages of the other fish keepers, but not necessary. Many of the young in age fish keepers are very responsible and do much learning to hold their own on here.

EDIT: 13 years old is the minimum age allowed to participate as a member.

If ever there are issues which need attention, please use the report button, no matter the age .
