*Edit* this isn't Like KONY/SOPA/Any other thing that was a Petition, This is already a Law that everyone agreed to when they signed up to the website.

Now its not the end of the world when One of these reports are made.
All that will happen is the member under age is suspended with their account, UNTIL they are old enough to have it.


its not like they are Banned for life form the site :\

and please before you try to tell me that its my fault/DA is mean/ this is happening. It already has happened. its a Law. all the info is in the links provided so don't come bitching at at me.

I don't know about Facebook or other sites I am not Familiar with their ToS. they May be under the COPPA laws, they may have Completely different Age Agreement. so please I am not trying to cause a Stir, This journal was only made to educate some people and Stop people from Telling me "Being under 13 isn't that big a deal". *END EDIT*


I report anyone that is underage.... and alot of the time when people find out all I get is
"its no Big deal alot of people do it"
"Who Cares everyone is Having fun"
"Leave these children alone"




I just want to Swear my Head off right now at this, but Past Experiences Show me that People wont Read what I am saying and Start to Claim I am Immature..... >.>


The Reason Why We report underage users.... COPPA

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
if there are enough under age users on dA (let alone any site with an Age Restriction)
the site can be shut down.....
www.coppa.org/coppa.htm <---- Full Meaning and Law with COPPA
www.coppa.org/comply.htm <---- Why COPPA can shut down Da if there are too many underage users.


so if you see someone under age, Either Report them your Self with the contact Help Desk help.deviantart.com/contact/ <--- Make sure its Catagory COPPA

or Let me know and I will Get there Ass off Here.

this is Not a Joke and people need to understand more about this Very Serous issue!



TL;DR Report People underage or DA could be Shut down

:thumb357244020: the girl mentioned in the journal is currently trying to get me and some other deviants back for banning one of her account when she has more than fifty accounts on DA.(go copy the thumb on somewhere else to see it.e.g. A journal)

She also told other deviants that I was under 13,but I was 17 and I posted that on my ID :(

I wholeheartedly agree with you, and I'm sorry you've been getting flack for it. You're just trying to protect us and the site. These kids shouldn't be on here, they should be playing outside and drawing in the sun. Neopets is a kids' site and you have to be 13 or have a faxed letter to the HQ from a parent (with their signature and all) before you can talk to people and do a lot of stuff. I did that when I was 11 :3

But I didn't make a DeviantArt until I was 14, because I thought THAT was the minimum age. It should be.

I don't think dA should get SHUT DOWN for it though, it's not entirely their fault that kids are breaking the rules to get on here; they're just attracting all ages, y'know? But I do see where everyone's coming from.

I feel awful that you're getting issues from people for doing the right thing.

While they're at it they should remove the immature people, too.
They're just as bad as the underage people hopping all over the website.

And this is now finally becoming a panic to the users?
Wow.

if you read the journal you would not need to ask.
if you are UNDER 13 then you will be Banned until you are the right age.

the only way to report someone is with Proof.

if the person starts to make other accounts to can report them again and they will get an IP Ban, when they are old enough they will contact Da and prove there age.

the Account will be suspended until the member is old enough.

So, if they, like, confess their age, then that would be proof and they could get suspended
