Is there anyway to have an age verification system on here

I am fed up reporting those who knock 5 to 14 years of their actual age (which as far as I am aware is illegal for them to do so) as they proclaim themselves to be honest and genuine.


any chance of one on here :)

Nope not really. This is a free internet dating site that you only need a email not even a name to join.

If you figure out a way to verify age via email then start working on how to verify weight the same way next. Maybe "true" is a better site for you if you trust them any more.

So you would snail mail your birth certificate, drivers licence, etc. to admin to prove you are who you are?

No doubt you'd want those returned eventually, and are prepared to take the bus or walk in the meantime. You'll pay for return postage, right?

If you are suggesting you would supply this certification by sending scanned photos, well I suspect there are many who wouldn't hesitate to doctor up such images with Photoshop before submitting it.

Its a FREE site with one admin and thousands of new members a day. 8 million members you want verified. Almost a million active users a day that would need verified.

There is ONE employee. The owner. Its built on being FREE and easy to join.

I am not giving my drivers license or credit card number to any site that freely emails my password in plain text twice a week to me.

Getting Markus to spend that kind of time policing a free site, that has worked fine for him so far to make millions of dollars for him, to please you might just be rocket science.

Good luck.

~OP~ I agree it's very frustrating, but there is no legal issue ~ people lie. It's not against the law. If they were to verify ages, people would also want verification of the following: drug free, disease free, height, weight, marital status, credit history, etc., etc. It's impossible and really? Not necessary. You just have to weed out the liars. There are truthful people here, you just have to find them. JMO

It isn't rocket science but it isn't a solution either. Who is going to pay for people to sit around and review these documents? How many members would be willing to submit them knowing that their info could be stolen from yet another site and be used for identity fraud? And how do the reviewers know that you are the person actually listed in these documents?

Your solution has huge gaping holes in it that would render it ineffective and at the same time it would create a logistical and security nightmare that would cause many user's to avoid it entirely.
