Age and Location Mandatory in User Profile

Is there any way to make age and location manadtory in user profile? I know guys can BS about their true age and location, but at least if they are forced to enter something, odds may be at least some of it's true.

And guys who enter stuff like "next to hell" or things for a location could be warned to change it.

Just thinking out loud here.

Could this be because people have 47 guns and can't afford to buy a clue?

I know EXACTLY what prompted this...

I think this would be a good feature aswell, often I check on a location ( IF there is one....) before I buy something.

Guys, you take your own chances when you buy online. Buying gear or kit you can't try on before you pay is a little absurd IMHO. Unless you get the admin to verify everyones location by the IP that the register from, there is no way to know for sure. A person can put whatever they want in thier profile. Only solution is to have a representative verify everyones details ... oh wait - we already do that. And what's the next proposal - roving location verification and enforcement teams ?

A person who is verified to see the protected area of the forums has already had thier age checked, along with ID that, reasonably, should show thier address or at least thier general locale. If your problem lay with a verified person - get in touch with the admin to get thier details. If it's another issue, you took your chances buying off the net.

Requiring people to post their age and location wouldn't do much since the person can post what they want - unless you're also proposing real-time monitoring of registrations. It's a round about conundrum.

I'm probably buying myself a round trip ticket on the flame train here...


But a crazy idea would be to close some parts of the board down to users unless the have a credit card number that would be stored on a secure server. It sure would cut down on the b/s.

And maybe leave a visitors section where unregistered users could visit.

ill get my ass flamed in 3....2....1..

HA HA HA
I thought this was an airsoft chat board. Some people on this board just don't seem to understand that they are alienating new people to our sport by suggesting these totalitarian rules.

My location is absolutely true. How do you know that it's not?
