Did you notice that when signing-up for your Disney BD-Live account that they asked for an SSN or DL# to verify age? Now, I'm a big Disney fan, been to the parks many, many times, and even own stock, so I;m sure they have my info, but i just didn't feel right about giving it to them again on this sign-up form. They also offer a third option , which is verification by e-mail. I chose that. I'm not sure how that works, but maybe it ties me to their existing records? Anyhow, at least they are trying to keep the kids safe. Oh, and they wouldn't let me use "rudeney" as my online name - they said it was "inappropriate for a family atmosphere". Go figure!


Did they ask for SSN? I know that they asked for Birth Date. (I did mine via computer, I didn't do the BD - Live way). Now you are giving me reason to relook at it. :P

I did the sign-up on my PC. I don't think you can create an account from the player itself. It did ask for DOB, but they had that already since I had an existing Disney account. At the very end, there was a prompt for an "age verification" process with three options - supply SSN, supply DL#, or respond to an e-mail. I chose the e-mail method. A few minutes later, they sent me a message with a link to click. I did that and it took me back to the BD-LIVE site and "activate" my account. I have no idea how that proved my age, but they seem to think it did!

Whoa, perhaps I chose email and didn't think anything of it. :shrug:

Kewl, I should get lots of friends that way. :lol:

I was messing with Transformers last night and I was able to change the PopUp Menu, I guess you can call it a skin, to BubbleBee. There is a Megatron and Optimus Prime too. My son thought it was pretty cool...
