Members are supposed 18 or older, it's part of the disclaimer when you sign up. it's also the reason non members are unable to access the hentai sections. So under 18 can illegally be here but have limited access and they can always lie about they're age which most probably do.

I thought those under 18 can still register, except that their accounts cannot have access to the H sections?

There is no age restriction on the hentai section because there is no way to validate someone's age on the Internet. But if someone admits they are under 18 we reserve the right to kick them off the site.

I heard there are 16 yo on this site, and they are known, why they not kicked off?

Maybe they don't access the H sections. Not everyone here is a pervert. Some are here for our vast console discussions.

But if someone admits they are under 18 we reserve the right to kick them off the site.It is not the obligation of the HongFire staff to babysit certain members because their parents are disinterested in their actions. If the said 16-year-old does behave inappropriately due to their age, they will be reprimanded; however, normally behavior that requires punishment is applicable to all ages, and not just limited to members under the age of 18.

As others have mentioned, it's not against the rules to be under the age of 18, but before you can register you verify your age to be 18 or older. If you are not 18, you get the message:

We're sorry, You must be at least 18 years old or above to register on to this site. Please come back when you are older :)

TLDR: Not against the rules to be 18. People that lie about their age lied so that they can register a new account. Everyone on HongFire has a history of lying so liars rarely get booted off the forums.

Well that was strange, I decided to test this... I began to register a new account, first I went for a DOB in 1992 (16yo) and it progressed to the user agreement, so I went back and went for 1996, this time it brought up a message about how the site is for over 18s only... then when I tried the 1992 one again I got the same message... how very queer...

Lawyers call this kind of behaviour "being pragmatic" ;)

It's the law that decides what age is appropriate until then it is 18 and stays that way. I also know many adults who act 13 so physical age does not always matter anyways.

...? I registered at like...14, when I was 14, and I still got access to all the porn. Even when I was unregistered, I had access to everything, porn, downloads, whatever.

The age limit on the adult section was only enable a two years ago. So when you registered it was not restricted. Now unless you register you can't access the 18+ sections.

Huh? Log out and see what you can see. There are still a few restricted areas, but not many. And the conditions of access are subject to change without notice any time certain admins feel like tweaking them. Same goes for registration. In the past, there was no minimum given age limit that I was aware of and quite a few minors have registered. Apparently things are different at the moment and only those who claim to be eighteen or older may now register.

Personally, I'm a lot happier requiring people to register to see adult areas using the honor system for screening out minors. If they want to lie about their ages, that's their parent's problem, not ours.
