There is a setting to block content from under 16, but also over 36. That made me legit lol. 36 seems like such a random age

This post has received a Note or Correction by the SimilarWorlds staff.
The displayed ages that can be blocked via:
"Privacy Settings > Contact and Content Settings"
varies between user accounts, and is dependent on the subject user's stated age.

It is done this way for simplicity, as well to avoid accidental over-restricting to the point where the user risks receiving little to no content and communication.
oooh shit get all these 36 and up year olds out of my face

It makes sense... if you are a minor, then you don't want some 37 year old hitting on you anymore than I don't want my feed filled with teenagers posting about how hard school is these days.

I probably left school before you were even born - I'm not sure how I can contribute constructively to that conversation...
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@HootyTheNightOwl But what if the conservation isn't meant to be constructive, but just random and fun
@BasicWaffles I eventually burn out without some deeper, more meaningful chat.

I prefer to get to know people as a person rather than just as random jokes and memes. Sure, they're funny - but most of them don't sustain friendship long term for me.

We need that feature, cant trust those over 36ers
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@Morrigan exactly. I assume they are all murderers and thieves
mclovin02 · 41-45, M
LOL....never noticed that, but it is funny. It also really begs the question of why they chose that number and not some other random number.
mclovin02 · 41-45, M
@BasicWaffles If you decide to block me do to that arbitrary number I promise I won't complain. After all, SW did assume everyone of 36 is horrible and needs to be blocked.
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@mclovin02 Who am I to doubt my overlords?
mclovin02 · 41-45, M
@BasicWaffles It just goes to show that you are good obedient little worker bee. Your overlords would be very proud of you

Definitely helps for sure. One of my favorite features. Not sure how I have it set but it also helps like where I can see the messages before I respond. Look into it. For real it's a lifesaver.
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@huskyguy89 should I take advice from someone of whom is part dog part human?
huskyguy89 · 31-35, M
@BasicWaffles not what I meant by "husky" but that's up to you whether you take the advice. Its offered freely.
Chrisy3 · 18-21, F
It would be bad enough being 36/37 and finding out you’re ‘to old’ I can only laugh at people who are waaaay older than that - they must be feeling really old when they read this! 😂😬
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@Chrisy3 yep, those 40 year olds must have one foot in the grave
Spica · 31-35, F
Maybe the algorithm thinks that's the group close to being twice your age but I'm not sure. Mine suggests blocking under 18 & over 56 which I kinda find random too. Lol
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@Spica ooooooh I see now

It’s probably because 36 is the start of a new age category. There should be an option to block all age categories.
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@SW-User oh
@BasicWaffles 🙃 Um, couldn't you just log off?
Thespis · M
I realize you're still very young, and the council of elders will probably be upset if I shared this information. As I am approaching my 36th birthday council elders have made me aware of "The Process" At 36 years old I will start to say things like "in my day", and "Kids nowadays", and frequently complain about the latest pop music. I can also expect a quick decline in my understanding of technology and its uses. All these things and more make me understand why someone might want to filter out content from those over 36.
Zeusdelight · 61-69, M
That over 36 thing is new.

A good idea.
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@Zeusdelight yeah, all ovoer 36 year olds are filth
Zeusdelight · 61-69, M
@BasicWaffles Hey, wait a sec, I am over 36!!
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@Zeusdelight GASP!!!
Eyecing · M
Maybe they thought it would be in bad taste to pick 69?
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@Eyecing no no no that would be good taste
pride49 · 31-35, M
Oop in 6 years I'm blockable
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@pride49 Maybe I should just block you now, to get ahead of things
pride49 · 31-35, M
@BasicWaffles ur such a basic bi...waffle lolz
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@pride49 lolol
SW-User
A smart move.
SW-User
@BasicWaffles we shouldn’t be direct messaging or face sitting
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@SW-User or maybe we should. Maybe this site is trying to keep me from the promised land
SW-User
@BasicWaffles 🤔..perhaps so. Who can really know
vetguy1991 · 51-55, M
Im just glad i made it past 36
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@vetguy1991 you should be ashamed
vetguy1991 · 51-55, M
@BasicWaffles only the strong survive
PerfectIllusion · 41-45, F
Over 36? 🤦‍♀️
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@PerfectIllusion yep, so random
GuyWithOpinions · 31-35, M
I wouldnt block content by age. Alot of people dont even pos their real age and if someone asks a legit question or has something to talk about on a public site does it really matter if there 18 or 45? If you dont like a post just scroll passed it.
Even stranger half the "female" profiles on here are really 63 year old men using fake profiles
BasicWaffles · 18-21, F
@ExperienceDLT damn you caught me
It's probably because of the age categories.
ronisme1 · 61-69, M
How can i even see this,? i should be blocked
allygator18 · 22-25, F
last year it was under 6 and over 53
JPWhoo · 36-40, MVIP
Damn, I have less than a year…
Mine says under 18 and over 56...

basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
That makes me feel old lol. I turned 34 last week.
MartinTheFirst · 22-25, M

Donotfolowme · 51-55, F
