This hack allows you to make the birth date a required field. A birth date form field will be added to the registration pages and, if the forum is set to use COPPA, then the entered birth date will be used to determine the user's age (instead using of the current link selection method). Additionally, you will have the option to set a minimum age requirement for registration and users will have the option to choose whether or not they want their age publicly viewable.
