AvP R – Australia, the other English

AvP R - The other English

Looking at the Aliens vs Predator: Requiem site tonight it was interesting to see that there are three types of English: North American, Outside North American, and Australian.

So what is the difference? Should we feel privileged, or outcasts?

Examining the different English options I found the major difference for the ‘English Australia‘ sub site is the addition of an intermediary age verification page.

I presume that has to do with some legislation in Australia that prohibits access to R rated sites for minors. Hence you need to verify your age.

The thing that annoys me though is: If you are going to do a site specific for Australia you might like to get the date format correct on the age verification form.

Australia uses the international date format day/month/year.
