Is there an age limit on this website?
Edit: I realized there was a site discussions fourm.
Yes, it is ILLEGAL to be on here if you are under 13 years old, without your parents written consent delivered to staff. This is a law, not something decided by us.
No there really is. But if the states works anything like here, you can't arrest those under 13 for stuff like this (it's the parents or us liable)
"Dispatch, we have an 11 year old kid enjoying a creative outlet who is getting help from an ONLINE FORUM. Book his parents for a few nights in the cage, that should teach 'em!"
OP, why do you even care when the game, which this forum is about, definitely has a more concerning age rating. lol
There is. It's US federal law and thus any website operating under the US needs to follow it. We could theoretically be held accountable if we are found knowingly letting <13 yr olds operate without parental permission.
Now if only youtube channels strictly followed those guidelines...
Technically, Google operates or should operate on the system where children under 13 can get a google account but only with parental consent via other accounts; however, the issue is that you can fake a date of birth and other bits of information, which is often how people (like my younger brother under 13 and initially myself) have been able to create accounts on Twitter and several other sites.
Sometimes it's entirely for school reasons, like a project of sorts
I thought COPPA was overturned by a court ruling at some point.
