You still have eBay, retail stores, hobby shops, etc. What did you do before this Blowout?
For the record, I agree with the fact that a symbol/mention that someone is a minor on their profile, but with 3 additions.
1) You can still deal with a minor if you want to, but it's at your own risk.
2) If neg feedback is left because someone won't deal with a minor, it can be removed.
3) If it's found out a minor has faked their birthdate, they can be banned.
Yeah, to be honest with you, this site has really kicked off my collecting. I used to by a few packs of cards here or there, but this site is where I learned about prospects, about when the next local card shows are, all the fakes and whatnot being sold on eBay, and that you could
buy and sell over the internet.
Before I joined here, I'd only buy retail (Back then, I thought everything was the same and didn't know retail from hobby) from Walmart. Now I know a lot more (Which still isn't much compared to the big guys around here) about the collecting community.
