    Nice find :D
    I think they knew about this bug and it should be fixed by now, or maybe that was alpha 2, which isn't up here yet.

    I'm not sure what the issue is. While yes, that is almost definitely fake, there has to be a cut off somewhere and it makes the most sense to put it where it's not likely to hit a real user but enough to catch legitimate mistakes.

    Not a bug imo, the oldest living person is 114 years old, while I very much doubt they would actually frequent a forum, or even use a computer for that matter doesn't matter, still doesn't make it impossible.

    I wonder if Bill Gates would still use a computer if he reaches that kind of age.

    Maybe up the cut-off age to 125 or something? I mean, the oldest person ever was Jeanne Calment age 122 years. lol. You have 'atleast' 11 years then before it would need changing ;)

    well, I guess it would be fair to cut it off at 100.

    any votes ? ;)

    what's the point in adding a cut off?

    Why at 100? I don't see your point... aslong as there are people older than the cut-off age, then it doesn't make sense to have it lower.

    does not look like a professional website having users with age 109.
    Quite unlikely..... at least for me.

    It looks even more unprofessional if a user which is genuinely 109 and they're not able to show their actual age because of some power trick admin who doesn't believe in allowing the older generation to use their site as a youngster would.

    Not everyone over 100 is dead. Forums are a good way to pass the day in an otherwise dreary environment older people sometimes need to endure.

    I saw someone who looked about 109 visiting a default phpBB3 themed forum the other day in a hospital. I don't think a cut off should be there by default, but rather an option in the admin panel.

    Something I've wanted before, actually. I remember when I ran a teen site I NEEDED a cut off age of 19 but no vB mod could do that.

    That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.
