My friend is trying to join fishlore and for some reason it always says we are unable to give you an account at the moment. Any reason why?

HI Daac,
Can you shoot me a PM with the following details:
- username requested
- email address being used

I'll see what I can determine.

EDIT: From what I can see, there doesn't appear to be any problems with new accounts.

Again, please send me a Private Message, don't post your friend's details to the forum

Age related? You have to be 13 or older to join the forum. Coppa rules.

Ooooh, I hit the bare minimum age requirement then . Luckily I just now consider myself a hobbiest, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to get such great advice!

I think we need to lower the age requirement to about 10... some kids need this forum's assistance.

HI Tigress, agreed, but per Mike's response

These rules are a Federal law, and Fishlore will abide by them
"Websites that are collecting information from children under the age of thirteen are required to comply with (COPPA). "
