I think so but anyway its just doesnt make any sense, it would be more intelligent to ban users caught on act , thats all

As of right now, they get age locked, which is an appropriate punishment.

Although I would personally like to ban all people under 18 from the site.

The big problem with that if a minor wants to watch porn, he surely will find out or he will go to other sites like Herpy where there is not even a warning message about adult content, so its not against this system, i totally agree with this but there should be something better because even if its good, its just not enough...

Do you really think you would find them all? Seriously.....

You should know that if something is forbidden, they surely will search for it, its a big truth of life and i'm pretty sure it wont change for a long time. In the past there was Playboy magazines, now there is furry porn and other stuff like that....

No, but I'd still like the rule in place.

Additionally, a method of verification could be adopted, except not a retarded one like the OP mentions.
About what kind of verification method you thought? a stupid message saying :"I'm older than 18 years old"? XD
BTW, its not against you, just kidding :D

The thing is though, if the site public declares that it only allows mature audiences, it simplifies a lot of things, namely how pornographic material is handled on the site.

This is a logical fallacy.

"They'll find it anyways" doesn't mean we shouldn't try to keep them from it.

Yeah but the problem is that on the site Herpy I couldnt saw any message saying that its not for minors or things like that, which is really annoying regarding the visitors of the website.

I never said that we we shouldn't try to keep them from it, i just said that it wont stop them as easily, i dont think there shouldnt be any protection like this age lock system.

And I think its also the responsibility of the parents to not let their childrens watching porn, this system its not enough if a parent let his child watching whatever he wants, you probably agree with that.

We should just shut down the internet and live in underground tunnels with little communication.
No one could see porn.

No. FA should be 18+
Despite being user 18, I do agree with this. After all, FA was originally created to host the porn that SheezyArt had just banned at the time. Not to mention that the ratio of adult to children users in quite big. There's plenty of places that host general furry art by itself, but FA is just not one of those sites. It's just a furry porn site.

I never said my idea was perfect. with the technology at our disposal today, there has to be a way to get a fairly accurate age verification

For everyone who is reading this thread and has read and replied, I am very much aware that my suggestion is NOT perfect. There have been a few posts here saying that FA should be only 18+ (which is both a good and bad idea), some calling for me to volunteer to verify the ages of every member on the site, or even closing the site down (never will happen).

With technology today, there has to be a way to verify someone's age (facebook, myspace, live journal, DA, etc), the admins just need to find a viable, working solution.

Hi, there's this thing called privacy that, unless you are the persons guardian, you legally cannot encroach on.
One would think that would have crossed your mind considering this thread is about FA getting into cataclysmic legal trouble.
FA is already contorting to the accepted legal intricacies of drawn pedophilia, why the hell would you suggest they implement a system that has them basically stalking supposed underage members.

There is a very good way to prevent children from accessing porn. It's called Parental Supervision...and that's old school but it works.
If parents supervise their child's online activity and also use things like programs created for the intent of helping parents manage and control kids online time then this wouldn't be an issue.

We do what we can when we catch users in the act of admitting to being underage. Really the best for sure thing is for parents to actually you know...be parents and be responsible.

^ This. If the parents aren't stopping the kids from doing it, then there isn't an easy way to tell who's underage and who isn't.

There are two solutions to this problem:

1. Do nothing.
2. Delete all the porn.

I don't think #2 will happen anytime soon.

Also I can go on xtube and see some pretty freaky shit and only have to go through a "Are you over 18 yes/no" verification to get it. That's all FA needs, and that's what they have now.
