Age Verification FAQ's - updated 2014 version

Every Thing you need to know is in this FAQ, please read it over several times if you have questions as it takes several times before people get the most common questions we keep getting asked figured out. Before you send a PM make sure you are not asking a question already answered in this post!! As always also ensure you have read the forum rules:
ASC Thread ASC Thread

How do I Identify a "local Rep" ?
Local Reps can be found in the SubForums in this section:
ASC Forum ASC Forum

I have an issue with the age verifier in my area, whom do I talk to?
You can contact any of our forum Admins, or directly to Drake / BloodSport, and tell whom you've contacted and how, if by email include the email address you used (this can be viewed from your sent mail folder). Please note though all our Age Verifiers are volunteers, their personal lives take priority over verifications so at times you may have to wait for them to respond, or get in touch with a different rep. None of our reps are required to come to you, they will provide you with a location they are willing to meet up at their conveinence you not being able to make that meeting is not their issue. Airsoft Age Verification requires you to get off your computer and travel at times to meet.

Can I get my Parent or Family Member who is over 18 to buy a gun for me?
Yes, but your parent/Family Member is taking responsability for giving you the gun, treat that responsability with respect. The police will come knocking on their door if you get into trouble with it. Please note that a parent/Family Member will not be age verified on ASC unless he/she is an active player themselves.

Can my mom or dad verify for me?
No. How ever if your parents want to get involved in the sport they are welcome to do so. I recommend that they come out to a game and rent a few guns to see if airsoft is what they're into. Airsoft is not a baby sitting service and dumping you at a game for a saturday/sunday isn't what we're about (specially since some of us are trying to get away from the brats for a few hours).

Are all sales sections blocked?
The gun sales sections (AEG, GBB, Accessories) will be blocked. The other sales sections (gear, international) will be open to all users.

Now will that restrict minors from selling their guns or trading??
Yes, minors will have no access to the gun sales sections at all.

What happens if there is a minor who wishes to sell a AEG or GBB?
They will have to do it through an adult who is verified on this forum. The adult will take responsibility for the sale and will be held accountable if goods are not as described.

The only issue is, will minor player be made AWARE that this section is blocked to them, but that it does exist; or are we going to see a whole bunch of FOR SALE/WANTED ads in the General section
The gun sales sections will be visible, but they can only be entered by verified users.

Can I verify with you or a rep over MSN video chat and hold up my ID for you to see?
No. In person verification only. If you can't take the time to spend a few minutes to get verified then maybe airsoft isn't for you. The classifieds are not going to disappear over night and if they did it would be because airsoft was banned. If you don't have time to be verified you don't have time to play. Considering that to get a real steel gun you're looking at a full day of time 5 minutes hardly seems like an imposing task. Do NOT send PM's to verifiers or admins asking them if there is a way around this. This can lead to an infraction for attempting to bypass the age verification system!

Can I scan or fax my ID and send the picture to you?
No. See the previous question.

I have a PAL. Do I have to see a verifier to be verified?
Yes. See the previous 2 questions. How ever you can use it as ID and we won't require that you pay to take a safety course, pay for the verification, do an intense background check on you and have register all your weapons with us. We aren't trying to compete with the Canadian Government, we're just trying to keep toys not meant for minors out of minors hands.

Is this open for debate?

How can I tell if I or some one else is verified?
Under their names is a little tag that says "Age Verified"

I just joined two days ago, can I be a rep to verify people?
No. Seriously we don't know you from adam, why would we have you verifying people? You must have been active with in the community for at least 2 year to verify people, with a good reputation.

I turn 18 next month, can I be verified now?
I'll answer this question with another question. Are you 18 now?

What happens if I lose my Age Verified Status?
You get custom shiney user title that says you're not trustworthy anymore. It will look something like this - Age Verified Status Revoked!! the other one you might end up with will say BANNED. Receiving one of these user titles is not a good thing.
