I recently opened an account for my 14 year old. I am surprised Mature Content box can be checked.

I'm pretty sure that Pixoto considers itself an "adult" site and does not allow anyone under 18 to be a member.

Hello Prakash, while we have +18 age limit now, we will change it to allow 13 and older. I will have to ask about ticking mature content box. As soon as I get feedback I will let you know.

Please make checking the "Mature Content" box have the option to be password protected, so parents can let their children have accounts without worrying about the content being displayed. Thanks!

Thank you Jasenka. This will be a good encouragement for the budding photographers, uploading what they think is their best snap to Pixoto and get a feedback from the members. Of course, it is a 2 edged sword, if it gets voted down badly, it might get them disinterested OR could get themselves to get out and shoot better pictures.

I feel you would have to have an automatic, unchangeable block on mature images for those between 13 and 18.
