Proboards can be so strict! >_<

I never liked proboards nor ezboards - because they are run badly... I only trust Conforums these days because there isn't much restriction.

You can pretend you're over 13 and once you're in you could reduce your age after, but I'm not sure if that would work (I never been on the internet under 13 years of age)

BAD PROBOARDS!

Actually, they're probably just wanting to protect themselves from liability.

Heh, whenever I get asked on the internet, my birthday mysteiously changes to sometime between 1975 and 1983 tongue

Anyways, I prefer using a free webhost and setting up SMF on it manually - it's more fun that way!

I think theres a valid reason for it, something to do with law. Though, I can't remember what. It's not to be mean, it's probably to avoid getting sued if you see anything you shouldn't. Maybe I'm wrong. I dunno.

You can always lie about your age, I suppose...

Ya, some childrens' protection law passed in... 1996? I can't remember. Hmm... I think it might be "The Childrens' Prvacy Act" or something. I'll try to find out...

Proboards is awful...-_- I'm older than thirteen, but I don't like the fact that the staff members can see my age, and I don't think that they allow you to change it. I didn't know EZboard was that bad, though...Until recently. It's a bit of a pain in the ass to work. However, I don't really like Conforums that much either. Invisionfree is okay, and CreateForums isn't that bad. However, those two are a pain in the ass to get working. I guess that every board host has its issues.

Ezboards used be a good server until around 2003 - that's when it started limiting a lot of things and sticking advertisments in between threads... I was put off from there completely.

I don't have much of ads (only a donation box) on my board. However, I dislike how you can't disable the censor unless you pay. -_-; I don't know what other limitations they might have, but once my trial runs out, I guess that I'll see...

God I hate boards like that. On a Coheed and Cambria board I frequent, I'll be reading a very important and interesting thread, then I'll see an ad written in the same text as the post and think that some song or storyline is talking about the wonderful world of Google. tongue
