Default I have a suggestion

It is that if someone registers and gives their date of birth ( I know a child could chose to enter any DOB and register as an adult and you have no way of knowing )but if they do give their true DOB and they are under say 14 years of age I think it would be helful if there could be something put after their name to show that it is a young person. I am suggesting this because I replied to a thread where it was a little girl of 10 had posted and had I been aware that it was a young child I would have responded in an entirely different way.

Know it may not be possible but I would be please if my suggestion could at least be considered, Thank you.

I agree. I know this website is for all ages, but it does really help. It would help you know exactly how experienced the person really is before taking their advice and trying soething that could be dangerous to the behaviour of your pet, or even poisionous to them (If it were a type of recipe for Raw or somethign along that line) It would really help.

I also agree that a lot of them will lie and put in an older date of birth, but at least we will understand a few of them. I know a lot of 14 yr olds that are VERY intelligent, but there are the few that speak their mind without thinking of the consequences. They are also more likly to start arguements and more.

I know that I'm more inclined to pay more attention to what I'm posting if I'm talking to kids & take more care in general.

Just for my imput, I would also like to see "something" with a clue to age as I handle my daughter and daycare children much differently when speaking than when I am speaking to an adult.

With all the predators scouring the intenet these days, I honestly don't believe that children should be allowed to register without their parents knowledge and consent. It's a safety as well as liability issue.

If children are allowed to register without parental consent, their age should not be displayed with each post for anyone that pops in without bothering to register. We don't need to point out the kids to would-be predators.

As it is now, only registered users can view the profile and see the age. This of course doesn't insure anyone's safety, but makes it a little bit less risky for the youngsters.

The information is there in the profile for all registered users to see. It's a simple task if posts seem a little off center to check the users profile.

Before anyone points out that kids are safer on this site than many others, I'll agree with that. However with such a large site it's safe to assume that it's attracted a few predators from time to time.

Let's not unecessarily draw their attention to the kids! If we're going to display their age, keep it in the profile.

My two cents...

There's a rule on another forum that children of the age 13 and under are not permitted to register on the forum.

I've always liked the rule - even with I was 13 (I waited to join the forum and joined a few months after I turned 13.)

Just a suggestion to add while on the subject.

This suggestion has nothing to do with whether or not these youngster are on the forum with or without their parents consent. The fact is that whether we agree with it or not this forum allows youngster to join ****and my suggesion came from having checked quite a few profiles and their is no age shown on them and some of them have no information shown to give other members a guide to their age so members have no way of knowing how old a poster is .
