    Default Age requirements for forums and Spacetime applications

    It recently came to light that some people think the age limit of the forums and the game has been lowered to 9 years old. This is not true. Because of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) the age limit for these forums and the games themselves (because of the chat function) is 13 years old.

    Anyone under the age of 13 is prohibited by law to participate in the forums or the games. I'm sorry if there was any confusion.

    Well thanks for clearing that up. Of course, there are still a bunch of kids below the age of 13 on the forums and in-game and the numbers will only continue to grow. Too bad they can't be here with their age publicly known. Most of them are pretty cool to be honest.

    Does this mean they'll ban these people from the forum like my friend was for a couple weeks until his birthday?

    Finally clearing this up...Don't know how this is just being corrected now, when we've been discussing it for like 2 weeks =\
    But at least it's out in the open now.

    @Javier995 Yeah, we have to ban them until their birthday. We've had to do this to some really great people before too, it's not fun but required by law.

    @adidaman LOL. One thing I'll point out as I did on the other thread, is that because it is so hard to verify ages, if someone says they are under 13 we have to take that as evidence and act on it. So don't say you're under 13 if you really aren't!

    I know it's not like that Just curiosity, how is it done? Does the forum thingamajig automatically ban them, or is it done manually?

    Ignore the second half of this post. The first part is all that matters.

    Forums must be a little slow right now, double posting all over the place!

    It's mostly manual. If we see evidence or someone saying they are under 13 we have to do something about it.

    So that's why i've been seeing a bunch of "banned" below people's name.
    But then again im sure there will be a bunch of kids slipping through the cracks.

    Yes the forum app has been slow since yesterday night after that thing that makes the forums unaccessible for a few minutes. It takes awhile to actually submit your post even after you hit submit, and it's takin longer than usual to load a thread (but it depends on the thread).

    Oic, well it would suck if you needed to sit there and go through ever person here on the forum to ban the underage ones lol.


    Hey bro since we're already here, do you guys plan to make a thanks and thumbs up button on the app?

    Hello Guys,

    thank you for this Information.

    But sometimes there is no way to avoid a double post. For example if you have any Informations and the thread is on second site. Nobody visit this thread until you make a new post.
    Hope you understand.


    Thanks

    @Hans That type of post you speak of is not what we are speaking of. The double post that was used here, was the forum acting funny and making you post the same reply twice. This happens idk how but it's always good to catch a dev do it
