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?)
No, it doesn't make any difference. The kids are here, let them deal with whatever answers they get.

No. It's obvious how old they are if you just LOOK!

Yes, it would be nice if the poster's age was more prominent.
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!
This site is full of minors, it's so rare to see someone your age on this site so knowing you already have a huge age gap you should be more watchful of the age next to the username. They don't need warning signs flashing on minors posts, if you're embaraased from looking like an old pervert prowling on an underage girl that should be a good enough reminder from now on to glance over at the age before replying to a post.
I don't know I think most of the time you can clearly see when some is under 18.
What kind of question did she asked that prompted you to ask her for pictures?
It's the internet you're probably not the first guy that asked for pictures. Or catcalled her in real life, or said something dirty about it. I'm not trying to encourage men in their 40s to come on to teenage girls, but that's just how it is
Their age is right next to their username. I'm not really sure how much more obvious that can be made aside from making the text black instead of grey. Besides, there's lots of Under 18's who sign up here with fake ages saying that they're over 18. I think it's best to just not ask anyone for their picture because you don't know how old they really are. Asking for pictures over the Internet is very personal. You don't want to end up on Dateline or something.
The age is usually clearly listed right next to the username. I don't think it would be a wise to "highlight" it any more then that. Now that i've said that.. you made a mistake and you didn't take it further then that when you realized she was underage. I guess the lesson here is too just be more aware to who's Q you're answering!
You shouldn't be asking for anyone's pictures no matter what age they are you creep. And under18 users clearly have their age next to their username. If you ever bothered to look before you started fapping at random chick's photo's then you'd know this. >;I
I mean I get how you may have slipped up, everyone makes mistakes. But the only thing I would advise is to just be more careful of your surroundings. If they make the minors more prominent than other users, they're just gonna lie about their age and you're gonna talk to someone you think is an adult but is actually a kid. I don't think you want that, right?
Sometimes I answer questions without noticing how old the asker is. Sometimes I answer questions and don't even notice the gender. But asking for a picture is getting personal. How the heck do you ask for a picture, or even want one, of somebody you don't even know their age?
To ask for a picture like that means you are being very indiscriminant. At 48 you already know that the vast majority of women / girls here are way younger than you. You can't accidentally do it because you already know they are very young. You're 48 years old and on a site that's full of young girls, and asking random girls for their picture. Come on, get your act together.
Not gonna lie. I don't message anyone on here; but, on some questions, I've responded a bit adult-ish to questions minors ask; then I see that they're minors, and I'm like "Hmmm. Oops. Oh well." The first thing I usually do is check the age group, but sometimes you're just interested in the topic. Particularly when I'm shotgunning topics. I've thought, it would be nice if there was a sort of divider: a minor's gag and an adult GAG. Or, at minimum, if you could make some posts "Adult only", or if minors could make some posts "minors only".
Of course. If you're going to be asking for pictures and shit, you'd think it'd be a no-brainier to double check the age.
Not that prominent and I think your write I was on Experience Project (EP) for 6 years and the last 2 they let the kid run wild on there but tried to make it non adult posts.. But it did not work and they are shutting down the site...
