I was born in 1917 once

And pretty much every year between then and 18 years ago. But always on the first of january.

Just login to steam with your account, and checks will remember your age.

I agree. Having to enter your date of birth for every session is really quite irritating. It'd be nice if we could add our birthday to our account and have Steam use that when accessing pages for M-rated games.

But it's silly to have to repeatedly do this, especially when most of the games on my list are M-rated. I can play the games but I can't access their pages without verifying my age? See? Silly.

BUT then people like me that left the date of birth in 2010 by accident would get screwed D: I had to restart steam just so it would reset.

Glad i don't have to lie about it anymore

ahhh, those were the days, but if you are logged in there should be a box to enable saving of your birth date.

I think it's hilarious that they even let you choose 2010 as a possible date of birth.
