This kid tried contacting me by MSN for verification but decided to play games and refused to tell me who he was. Blockage ensued quickly.

I won't verify anyone's parents if they're underage, let alone someone who's banned twice from ASC. I'm sure Valk and Skruface won't either. Good luck with that, Adam.

If I were you i would just get ur parents verified and send them to get the guns. Have airsoft retailers deal directly with your parents. Then have them handed to you and your in.

WTF are you talking about? Another kid trying to bypass the system? Just stop typing your retarded advices. Do you ask your parents to buy you alcohol and cigarettes too, and have them hand it to you?

That way won't get him in or you in, bypassing the system we have here only pisses the people off more, and you'll no longer be welcome to the community.

lilrush: Did you miss the part where we said we wouldn't verify his parents?

That, kid, is illegal.

But wouldn't this be legal if parents were supervising at all times, and they were the sole owners of the gun?

(Just a question not a suggestion.)

Do you honestly think he's going to tell the rules to his parents? Or let them read the related laws?
One of the worst problems is uninformed parents. And I think that's why age-verifiers refuse to verify parents.
How many parents have you seen on any site with their teens?

thats why I suggested in the age verifiers area that we setup a real name/email age blacklist...so they cant just drive two towns over to get verified.

You can post here and contact Lisa on it, but yeah, these nice people aren't being paid and have jobs, life and the whole nine yards, so it may take a little longer.

You guys might not have noticed, but I think Lisa has a few things more important at the moment to deal with. Give it time, at the beginning there were people who waited for months, 10 days is nothing.

I doubt he would. But my question goes unanswered, what if I'm not specifically talking about him? What if I'm referring to minors is general?

Then again, the FAQ says yes to my question. So nevermind :cheers:

As one of the Age reps, here's my stance on the whole "Verifying parents" topic. If the parent is a participant in games. Either at our local indoor facility, or one of our outdoor venues then I will verify them. However if all they do is sign a waiver form and drop jr. off with 50 bucks and a promise to return in a few hours, then no way will I. I like many people do not believe airsoft games are babysitting services.

moderatesniper, we do not verify parents to allow their kids to get guns that is not the point of age verification. If the parents are not active members or players they are not verified. And by active we mean they actually show up at games, play, get involved. Not just sit around, and let their kids do what ever.

I dont know about you but when I go to a game, I go to play. I do not go to babysit some other persons kids. If I was interested in doing that I'd still be playing paintball. I think this goes for 95%+ of the actual players on here, and probably 80%+ of the chairsofters on here.

Yes this makes it a pain in the ass to the few and I do mean few minors who are mature enough to play, but you know what, if they truly are mature enough then they will realize and honour the reason behind these rules, and wait like everyone else. If not, then like I said I'm not here to babysit nor is anyone else.

You have several age verifiers already replying in this thread and stating the same thing. Going around them to a mod/admin will not help, we all follow the same rules for age verification.
So in summary:

NO VERIFICATION FOR PARENTS WHO ARE NOT ACTIVE PLAYERS/MEMBERS THEMSELVES. <------ see the period? good.


Oh and thread locked.
