Thank you to Whozat - age verification

Just want to say thank you publicly to Whozat for doing my age verification. The guy did an amazing job, agreeing to see me the very same day or the next day. I ended up calling him at 10:30 am on a Sunday morning and waking the poor bastard up. He came down to see me in five minutes, though as I was already at the meeting place. He crawled back up to bed and I was verified like two days later and on both local forums too.

I just don't see enough appreciation for these guys who do the age verification; all I see and hear is bitching. Whozat told me a lot of assholes don't even show up to their arranged meetings!! The age verification system is a very important part of keeping airsoft alive and keeping the public safer from underage and immature punks.... these guys need our appreciation to keep it going, or it becomes a shitty and thankless burden. I just wanna say hang in there, and maybe even propose an official $10 fee paid to the verifier for verification outside of game days (I mean, airsoft is expensive enough as it is; what's another $10? A good asshole-weeding entry barrier). I should have bought him his smokes... almost did. Ah well. See you at the games, mate.

Agreed - I just met with DragonHawk on Friday. Really nice guy; he came to meet me without a second thought.

Good chance to get my appreciation out, too!

I would be good for buying a coffee or something, I'd rather not put a monetary value on getting age verified.

(Money you can spend anywhere, with a gift card you can only spend in one place and it expires).

Speaking as a verifier:

We all volunteered to do this because we saw the need to control the people who have access to AS guns on the site, with the knowledge that we would not be re-imbursed or paid for our services; hence the word volunteer.

If you want to buy the guy a coffee or something, fine, and I'm sure he will accept and appreciate it, but leave the cash out of the equation.

So a backrub is out of the question?

My new policy is that I only verify women by the way.

I swear I don't stalk people.

I feel like I should stop typing now but can't.

I have never accepted any offer of cash etc as payment for doing an Age Verification. As it has been stated, we do this on a volunteer basis, to keep the weapons in the hands of those this site, and members, deem mature enuff.

Instead of any kind of payment, I would request a donation be made to a charity or non profit organisation. If the donation could be made on behalf of Airsoft participants in general, all the better.

Cheers!!

if anyone couldnt tell by my maniacal french laughing, I was kidding.

if we got any sort of renumerance it should come from ASC, but like the man says, everyone who is a verifier Volunteered for the position, the knowledge i'm doing something to help further airsoft in Canada is payment enough.
