Of course not--but there certainly should be $dbUserSheme on line 89 of miniBB2's setup_options.php.
All the best -

If $dbUserSheme is not here, you are probably using oldest version of miniBB (1.x). You need to upgrade to the latest version, else new field could be added only rewriting core files, which, I guess, is not that you want.

Probably, the easiest way of validation is some JavaScript function. Additionally, you may catch necessary $action ('editprefs' or 'register') in bb_plugins.php and add some date checking function here (PHP has one built-in).

If you are PHP programmer, no problem to do that - create the same miniBB form as miniBB uses (with the same fields) and then set the cookie in the same format miniBB does.
