    Will I get a cake?

    Give me one good reason why you must provide a date of birth to register?

    If your birthdate is prior to a certain point, the system will not allow you to register. If you lie about your age in order to register, WHT is not culpable. The first part is fact. The second part is a good guess. HTH!

    The fact of the matter is that there are child protection acts out that require parents to give their consent if their child tries to get involved with online things before the age of 13. Its nothing that we necessarily care about ourselves, its just another law that we must follow.

    So teenagers can ligit post on WHT, but as 'minors can they 'advertise' ?
