Yes! Good Point

Children can't buy anything on here. It is a forum.

The Internet is inherently not a 'family friendly' place, there will always be things unsuitable for children and it is a parent's responsibility to monitor what they access.

Look harder............there is a For Sale/Trade section. lol

while I totally agree with the ops point-isnt the "technical" difference that 18 rated films cannot be sold to minors by law but the games are merely a guideline which has no legal standing-many retailers adhere to age ratings on games and wont sell to minors but I dont think they have any legal obligation to do so.

I missed that, my mistake.

But still - if we start limiting too much it annoys everyone

No it is illegal to sell age restricted products to underage persons or to buy age restricted products for underage persons. You ever played some of these 18 games BMX XXX prime example, has actual footage of Rhino Club ladies stripping. GTA4 i wouldn't want my younger brothers playing that till they are old enough. I'm 25 btw.

I would expect that "children" would be able to get age restricted products directly from "Game/Gamestation" et al direct from their respective sites far easier than buying them via HUKD.

what about this rule (stating it is up to the user to ask)

Please Note: Under 18's are able to use any forum including the For Sale forum. Bear this in mind when trading as we are unable to confirm or take responsibility for the age of any user. We also suggest that you collect as much information and as many details as possible BEFORE starting a trade with anyone.

it is illegal to sell to agr restricted items to minors and is is enforced by the trading standards also

they make regular checks with a lot of the larger retailers like hmv etc to make sure they are complying and staff are forced to sign a declaration in some stores that they have read the obligations

I personally believe the fs/ft forums should be age locked..

I think our age rule was more about the content on the site then the legalities of selling products which lies with the retailer.

If your worried about selling a restricted product to a minor ask them in the thread if they are 15/18 and if they say they are you have done as much as is required by law. That why websites have a disclaimer you have to confirm you are over the age of the you are buying.

exactly or the person selling the item is responsible for ensuring they are not selling to minors

dont you have to be over 18 to use paypal anyway? which is the main payment method

at the end of the day its not hukd forum selling these items its just providing the space for individuals to do so
