I agree with much of this suggestion's age-related functionality but would prefer an opt-in system for streamers. Along with the maturity settings of a stream there would be an 'Age Enforcement' option where the streamer can select:
- Disabled: (default) Embodies the current age-related handling
- Lenient: Stops those with a set DoB under that of the stream's maturity rating from viewing or interacting with the stream and chat.
- Strict: Same functionality as Lenient but also stops those without a DoB set from viewing or interacting with the stream and chat.
As far as the suggested flag system, I see it as an avenue for abuse. If automated, what is stopping a group of trolls from reporting a targeted individual? Not having it automated means that each individual report would need to be checked by hand which doesn't scale well after a few 1000 users enter a platform.
