How old do you have to be to join DA?

Is there a minimum age for joining Deviant Art, like Myspace and LiveJournal?

I was recently harassed by an 11 year-old and others have told me she probably should even be accessing the site. Many are under the belief that you need to be at least 13 years old.

I checked FAQ but personally came up with nothing that specifically addressed this, searched terms: "minor", "under", "age", "members", "minimum", and "policy".

I read through the Terms of Service and only saw age addressed in article 19. , sub-section d:
to harm minors in any way, including, but not limited to, uploading, posting, or otherwise transmitting content that violates child pornography laws, child sexual exploitation laws or laws prohibiting the depiction of minors engaged in sexual conduct, or submitting any personally identifiable information about any child under the age of 13;

But I'm uncertain if that applies to this inquiry, although I wanted to make an effort to answer my own question.

Input on the matter is appreciated. Thank you.

You need to be at least 13 years of age.

FAQ #696: How does deviantART comply with COPPA?

Be sure to read the FAQ first and search it thoroughly to make sure your problem isn't answerd there first. You can also check with the chat room #help to see if they can help you. If they can not help you, you can contact the Helpdesk, and they can help you out :)
