age required

Post by Hartenheer » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:25 am

Is it possible to have the age entered on the forum?

The forum is about beer and is 18+ compulsory
They can always lie, but I have met the legal requirements.

Rather not an extension but on the user panel

You said it, they can lie but if you want a yes/no type of thing you could use a custom profile field. Or, I suppose you could modify COPPA if you’re not using it. What about editing registration “I agree/disagree” thing to reflect 18 instead of 13? Other than that an extension may be required.

Surely they only need to be over 18 to buy or consume it but anyone can read about it. As long as you aren't selling beer, what problem/law is it solving? The wikipedia beer pages don't have an age entry limit for instance.

No sale.
In the Netherlands, information about beer is also subject to strict rules.

Before the forum is opened, you must already confirm that you are 18+.
But need hard evidence if they lie.
Then I am not guilty of indictment

Maybe Custom Registration Agreement will help.

Thank you for the link.
Not the hard proof what I'm looking for.

One should not consciously enter the age here to fill in .

If the option in PHPbb to enter the age can be made mandatory.
Then it is certain.

You are right.
Facebook also does things that we should not try.
You will immediately receive a message from a lawyer.

There’s nothing like that in vanilla phpBB so I suggest you make an extension request.

I don't understand the link.

I had Registration Age from you, but I get complaints that people cannot register.

Not a legally mandated requirement (see, for just one example, Anchor's website) but it is part of the Brewers Association Marketing and Advertising Code:
Brewers should require disclosure of a viewer’s date of birth at the entry to their websites
indicating that a brewers’ products are intended only for those of legal drinking age.
as well as that of the Beer Institute (the "large brewers' group"):
Brewers will require disclosure of a viewer’s date of birth at the entry to their beer-branded
websites and will post reminders at appropriate locations in their websites indicating that
Brewer products are intended only for those of legal purchase age.

If you are not a member of either group, there is nothing requiring or suggesting you do this. And it is not a brewer's website.

In the grocery store, do kids wear blindfolds when they walk by the beer display?
