In RC2 there is an option to only allow registrations to people over x age.

winrules... it looks like he's using reverse terminology...

Otario...
a forum is the entire ]software package called SMF.
a board is the specific sub-area within a forum  where the actual messages are posted.
a category is a way to group and/or separate boards.

And no, I do not believe there is a specific function that restricts access to specific BOARDS based on a set age. There used to be a mod for it, but I don't know that it was ever updated to work with 1.1 rc2
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.

Ah, okay....sorry.  :P

So the question is:
Is possible make a board or an entire category visible only to users who have insert the birth date? and so, let this board or category visible only to users that have >=18-years-old?

Can you tell me where to find this MOD!? and so, maybe..., upgrade it to the last SMF!?? :D :D

one way you could do this would be to create a member group specifically for anyone over that age.  then apply that group to those people, then set local permissions on those boards to only allow those members tha are in that member group.

I think a great feature would be to, on top of having more registration fields, tie the registration fields input in with permissions and board access.

Right now there is not, but do you want everything to be automated?

I kind of like some things hands on myself.

How are you going to handle age verification? Its easy enough to say yea I am 80 years old, how would you know I wasn't. When my parents see me looking at adult rated information and then call me as to why I let their children look at my smut whats your answer going to be? "Well it asked them if they were 18 and they said yes" Thats why most adult sites insist you use credit cards for verification of information, otherwise you could be looking at trouble.

I agree this shouldn't be an automatic thing. I would make it a point to get written information from each user before permitting them access to an adult site, but hey thats me I don't want to get sued.

i hope you aren't so stupid to really send your credit card number on the Net...lol
...did you really think they uses your number only to check your age? :P ...be careful... ;)

Btw, automated is better.
And for me is indifferent if a children see porn or no.... Just i wanna be safe i don't ALLOW them to see porn. If they cheat, it isn't a my fault!!
I can't know if a man put truth personal-details on my forum..... did you know a way?!???? (i think no..)

PS: you can always use a fake credit-card generator to post a valid "card number" on porn websites... lol :D so i don't see any difference.... :-\ AHAHHAHAH!!! :D :D

One factor you are leaving out (if you are in the US anyway) is that you are still liable if you haven't taken "reasonable" steps to assure the age of your customers.  That has been established in using some form of ID to prove age.

I've take all reasonable steps! ==> Ask to any users "When are you born?, please enter the REAL date here: __/__/____"

....if you have some real and working suggestions (NO like ask for the credit card number it's a bad suggestion! - 1] not all people have a credit card.. 2] is simple put a fake card-number to skip the validation system..3] Not all people trust you and refuse to enter the card#.. 4] Not all people are so "stupid" to send the cardnumber over the Net on any forum they see..)..are welcome! :)

Ah, as always any suggestions about howto make the system automatic is welcome too! :D

Wow 1st time I have been flamed in this forum. Congrats for being my first. Now to answer your statements. Yes I do, in fact, use a credit card on the internet. For several automatic bills, for stock options and I even use it to buy hardware online. Everysite I use in this fashion is secured (as secured as they come)

As noted if you provide porn without proper security you can bet you will be making a world of trouble for yourself. Just don't blame SMF when you lose your house, car and wife over your own shortsited approach to internet security. the courts in the us love to take the side of parents in these cases. If you would like I can show you actual cases where parents made a lot of money off of people like you.

Unlike you however I won't flame you but wish you luck and hope you do the right thing and secure ur site.

here is some real good info on the Child Online Protection Act
http://usinfo.state.gov/usa/infousa/laws/majorlaw/copa.htm

I think there is no real way to know who is accessing a web site, any kid can slide the fathers CC out there wallet for a little while, and more kids can beat the best Anti-Porn parental controls, because they are not set up right and kids have access to change things.

I would think that making your pics-label @ http://www.icra.org/ as restrictive as possible and make it like your site has every possible "bad content" imaginable and research every way to help make parental control programs identify your site as a site that kids don't need to be on, should then turn the blame on the parents for not setting up proper proxy gateways and Anti-Porn parental controls.

so even if you validate CC's and had age restrictions and had your icra rating max out to be a no-kids-hell-zone, how can a parent tried sue you when they allowed there kids on the net unsupervised (themselves or by means of software or hardware content blocking)?

but it's on you what content you provide and taking reasonable steps as far beyond reasonable as you can. with out being unreasonable to you, I mean if you have a free site with one banner ad and no other revenue for it other then out-of-pocket the it would be unreasonable for you to hire a service to validate credit cards, but if you charge access yeh you need to spend the money!

But I AINT not layer so use your best judgment!

I'm only contributing because I was tempted to set up a newbienudes dot com type site and have been thinking of these dilemmas!

Here is something else you could try one of the admin’s here has is on there site and one pagan site I frequent since the modern internet was born restricts access to the boards on there site to users that have been on a long time giving them a chance to see how users act because a kid will – given enough time show there age!

But automating this could make for problems if you forget a step in making (above) reasonable steps to protect children!
