ACP > Users and Groups > Manage Groups > Enter a name for a new group > Change settings how you'd like (do not change the group type from "request") > submit

Now they have to go to: UCP > Usergroups > select the group > submit > Yes

Now you have to go to : ACP > Users and Groups > Manage Groups > click "Members" of that group > checkmark the members you want to approve > choose an option > submit
PM me if you want me to do some work for hire (can do: support, maintenance, and mod requests).

Well you could ofcourse make date of birth a mandatory requirement at registration with either one of these mods.

That is not going to detect the users' age, since they can put in any year they want.

Ofcourse people can lie, but I guess that makes it no longer your responsiblity...

:lol: The difference is ofcourse that they can actually see their customers and ask for their ID.

The point is that it is still your responsibility, if age makes a difference.

If that was true then 18+ boards couldn't exist anymore :? You can never know for sure who's behind a keyboard.

I'm guessing you're not a fan of 18+ boards.
