I feel that since there is a wide range of posters on GAG, it's important that adults not respond innappropriately to children. In this instance, The poster was saying "should women" and I saw the word women and just automatically assumed she was over 18. When she responded, THEN I noticed she was only 16. While I did NOT ask her for nude pictures (I specifically said "decent" pictures) I was still embarrassed. I know I'm not the only adult that has accidentally responded to a child here. I think a color code would be great. (Maybe a "green" mark or something?)

Dude, the 13-17 year-olds keep their real ages on here BECAUSE there's no scarlet letter of side-eye marring all of their profiles.
If yr "solution" were implemented, I'm sure we would suddenly see a massive drop in the number of 13-17 year-old users, and a curiously suspicious spike in the number of 18-, 19-, and 20-year-old users.
In any case... yeah, this is just the internet equivalent of watching out for pickpockets whenever cute kids approach you in South America. You just... watch out, because common sense, and all.
If you are asking for pictures, then, triple-check.
Lastly -- I'm not trying to roast you here, but, I'm just trying to understand the situation:
I'm trying to invent a HDIL-type question that would actually be reasonable from both a 16- AND a 46-year-old. And... nope. Not coming up with one.
So, now I'm super curious what the question was!0

If that was done, more younger users would lie to say they were over 18.1
