Reminder Age Verifications are only Done IN PERSON!! Stop trying to bypass the system as it is the system that those here enforce and uphold.
Sending PM's like this:
Just because you look old enough means jack shit especially online, make up and shit can make anyone look older. Hell when I was 14 with zero help from prosthesis/make up and such, I was buying booze and smokes with ease because I looked old enough! In Person Only means In Person ONLY!

Also it takes away the anonymity and makes you part of the community. Verifying age is just part of it.
I have developed a new sport called Airhard. Pretty much the same as Airsoft, except you have to maintain an erection...

How simple do we need to make how to get Age Verified information available... seriously you figured out I am one of the people to contact regarding AV issues, but you cant figure out who to contact.....

If I could make a suggestion...
Maybe we could have a sticky on the front page that stands out for new forum visitors. It would be a lot more helpful than the ASC facebook post or the one about hotmail... that space is really underutilized I feel and for the past 1+ year that space has been used for the Rememberance day name change donation event that happened about 2 years ago.
I found a lot of the forums to be super user unfriendly. It's hard to find rules since it's stickied under "asc news and announcements" rather than the NEWB TANK which was my first instinct to browse when I first started. Why would someone new to the forums look into the news and announcements when they want to get basic information about how to use the site?
When I first joined I had to sift through 20+ pages before I had to learn about an actual AVer from word of mouth in-person. For people who know how to navigate the forums, this isn't a problem for people like you or me.
For people who are new to the forums, the forums should be able to detect when a new IP accesses the site and a pop-up should prompt to advise the user to read the rules and actually lead people where they want to go.
This thread in particular: http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=88238
has a hyperlink to the following under "getting age verified" http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=11474
No wonder newbies are having a hard time! Old threads need to be purged or cleaned up/updated. Volunteers need to be recruited.
The site is really old and needs a good update in general.

Everything else in my previous post though.. still stands. Forums need a lot of cleaning up and reorganizing.

well the rules are in the FAQ section and stickied there, as it a FAQ about age verifications with active links which is also stickied.
This thread and another in the news section are also stickied already.
Want to retype a few of the others and have time go for it, then PM me the thread link and the modified version, I will gladly copy and paste it in.
You talk about volunteers, a lot of our volunteer base is from the AVers, which as we get to know them more usually are ones who then get asked about becoming moderators for ones we see super active and doing little extras behind the scenes. Why have you not volunteered yet?

The forums as they are leave a lot to be desired. For example, over and over again we have posts regarding the purpose of age verification and why it's a self governance decision but they never explain to my satisfaction exactly WHY that is and WHAT.
Follow the train of thought: what is AV and why do I need it?
I'll click on this link: http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=162068
It will tell me to read the following: http://airsoftcanada.com/forumdisplay.php?f=273 (links back to the AV province page gives no info to me at all what's there) -> then i will click on this: http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=162052
The page then reads: ...
The regional representative will look at your ID, ensure you are who you say you are, that you are 18 years of age or older, and record your REAL name, Date of Birth, AND your ASC USER NAME.
but one thing that I found crucial that was missing was citing an actual statute/law. This is the compelling part. People need to know that this is a law abiding forum and not some identity theft ring... For example: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bil...t=&BillID=2493
That is the bill that cites that one must be 18 to buy an airsoft gun.
That being said I volunteer with other organizations but it is volunteering my free time and ASC isn't something I would like to advertise in its current state. I have close friends who were active in the airsoft scene and decided not to get AV. As an onlooker from outside the forums, the site does look shady AF sometimes, especially when someone is either young or unfamiliar with the mannerisms of the internet... it's very intimidating to meet people online.
As for finding you dead links and obtaining modified links... I have no idea how to do that. I referenced this ASC link earlier: http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=11474
that was retrieved from http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=88238 under #3... that post was from 2009 and I have no context as to where that thread leads.

Right now I'm not saying that the AV system sucks or that I don't want to be an AVer. Believe me I wanted to apply since day 1 when I rode my bike to Colin_S' house but I knew I had to be more known in the community before applying. Right now I feel the forums need more moderators than AVer's and cleaning up dead threads has been a neglected priority because there's just TOO MUCH INFORMATION and not enough time to read it all.
