Is Age Verification Broken

Hello. Have you problems with other adult regions? If you are "Aged Verified" (Age Verification) you have access in all adult regions. If you are "Account Verified" (Payment info on File) you have access in most of Adult Regions but you haven't access where the estate owner restricts access only to residents who are verified with age verification.

Age Verification doesn`t show on your profile. Account verification does, in the sense that anyone with "payment info on file" or "payment info used" on their profile, is account verified. Have you remove payment info from your account?

You can age verify again if you think that is the problem, is it also possible that you were ejected by the landowner?

I have experienced something similar, I age verified my avatar ages ago but somehow, I think about a year ago or so, I become unverified for no apparent reason. I have not bothered to age verify again yet because I have not yet been blocked from anywhere I want to visit.

This is not entirely correct. Firsxt of all regardless of how it's labeled, "Age Verification" is not what you are doing through the SL website, that is "Identity Verification", which is a subset of "Age Verification". "Payment Info Used" is the other form of "Age Verification", this is why both types of verification allow you access to adult sims.

Down to a parcel by parcel basis, a landowner may restrict either Identity or Payment info verifications, requiring you to have one, the other or both.This is regardless of the parcel/sim's rating. Due to LL's horribly confusing implementation of these features, some people mistake "Identity Verification" as an adult rating for their land. Some mistakenly believe it is the only "ager verification", some believe they are required to restrict to users using "ID verification", and others mistakenly believe that resitrcting to "ID verification" grants their parcel an adult rating even if it's in a "Moderate" rated sim.

Noone said something opposite. On the other side LL nowhere (in Knowledge Base and Wiki) reports the term "Identity Verification" except of the following page: 
in August 29, 2007. They report the term "Age verified" (Age verification - using driver's licence number, or Passport, or National ID card number or the last four digits of a Social Security number) and "Account Verified" (Payment info on file - CC or verified Paypal account with Xstreet or Second Life). So i consider that it is good to follow the official terminology of LL trying to avoid
misunderstandings especially from new users and from users who haven't English as first language.

In addition LL nowhere in knowledge base's or wiki's pages relative with age verification, reports the restriction "Restrict access to residents verified by payment information on file" although it exists, with the only exception a great chart by Rand Linden which posted for first time in June 2, 2011 (some days ago).
 

Some quotes from Age Verification page in Knowledge Base:

...Becoming age-verified permits you to enter land in Second Life in which the landowner has restricted access to verified adults only. If you do not wish to search for or visit land that requires age verification, you can experience Second Life without becoming age verified..... If your account has payment information on file, you may visit land that has an Adult maturity rating and search for Adult content without becoming age verified. Age verification enables landowners to keep minors from entering their land.....

...Estate and parcel owners have the ability to limit access to age-verified Residents only. Residents who are not age-verified are blocked and receive a message about how to become age-verified....Flagging parcels for mature content provides notice to adults that they may find content contained in the area objectionable. Denying access to non-age-verified residents guards against minors who may have gained unauthorized access to Second Life...

The problem is LL's terminology, which has lead to the confusion present here.  This same topic comes up again and again because LL has made all references to the features in question so poorly written and the terminology so confusing.

I'm not sure why you'd question the existance of a feature (especially one so easily confirmed just by looking at SL's parcel restriction options) even while admitting you'd found mention of it from LL.
