I only report people who put their dicks and porn on here, lol. I don't know most of the time if someone is underage.

Well considering I was (only just) underage when I joined it's a little hypocritical to do so :I but if they're being absolutely awful or spamming etc. I will...

Thought I'd clarify that I'm over the required age now :dummy:

Well,I surely wouldn't,if the person isn't annoying/immature to other users,but still...I would probably be a little pissed,because there are rules for a reason and the fact that dA is becoming a children's website is not really good for any of us >w>

I think I've reported and had banned/suspended like 8 now or something

there was this little sh*t of a kid who was 10 and was boasting about it on her page about how she was ten and how she was so much better at drawing than most 16 year olds.

me: hahahahah :D reported :D

now her IP has to wait 3 years before she can get on her account again, i dunno, i just feel kids under 13 should be reported because they're deliberately breaking one of the main policies of deviantart

Omg. When people are all "HAH I'M //insert age under 13 here// AND YET I'M SUCH A GOOD ARTIST AND I ACT LIKE I'M MUCH OLDER" I'm all :lol: look at what you just said. Real mature.

Yea, true. There are a few I can stand since they manage to behave and to be smart enough not to give out their age. But others... if you're naive enough to tell others you're underaged and expect nothing bad to happen, you shouldn't be on websites like these where anyone could have bad intentions or use your personal information against you.

If they seem to be minding their own business and just doing okay then why report them? I went on Wolfhome (another 13+ site) before I was 13 and if someone reported be just because I was underage at the time I probably would've been really upset. So if they're acting decent, why go out of your way to be rude?

SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If they are acting decent then yes, but sadly nowadays I often see kids on here who cannot behave as if they are old enough and who are naive enough to tell everyone their age - makes me wonder what else others could trick them into giving out...
The fact that they would be upset is sad, but if they can't behave you can't just let them act as if it's nothing. Rules are rules.

Almost everyone started off before they were 13 #BreakinTheLaw and I'm not about to get on someone's business for something I did myself (Bad Skkon!!)! I understand the stereotypical (emphasis on stereotypical) annoying 11 year old that, to quote a tumblr post, thinks they're hot shit. I understand why they might be annoying, but that for me is kinda all the more reason to stay out of their business. They'll grow out of it just like everyone else did, there's really nothing to worry about. That being said, I really don't mind if people do report those people. also if you WERE under 13 you REALLY shouldn't announce it that's just silly. They'll probably just make a new account anyways |D

Whoo I was a good kid, I joined at 14 :dummy:
It is, indeed, a stereotype, but I often find that underaged people DO act, well, not mature enough, and they don't realise it.
To be honest it really annoys me when people evade the temporary ban like that, it only proves to me they are indeed not mature enough :XD: I know some people who got banned and decided to wait until they turned 13, which made me respect them more.

Spitfires is a good egg! Yeah, that's pretty mature! But I can understand, like, worrying about your friends and stuff on dA once you got banned? Like, even to just let them know what happened and find another site to keep in touch with, y'know? It is smartest to join at the right age |D

No, no point in doing that.  I only would report if this 13 y.o person would make something, like spam, talk crap at everyone and so on. If the person behaves like normal human being let them be. Its pretty stupid rule anyway. And you thinking that 13 y.o person is incapable for lot of things like 5 y.o and never seen content you can find in here. Trust me, you are wrong. Nowdays kids seen more stuff than you think. I doubt any stuff in here would shock most of them.

It's actually not THAT unreasonable when I look at the attitude I see from people under 13 here. Sure, not much will shock them, but they really aren't as mature as they often think they are. Whenever I get a comment that is freaking out about something in my drawings, like how it depicts homosexuality, or how a character has no eyes in a certain drawing, or anything else, it's almost always people who are not supposed to be on here yet.

For me it just depends, but I mostly do. Rules are rules indeed, if you are mature enough to be here then don't mention your age in public if you're under 13, simple as that.

I don't know, perhaps I would like it owo

ateck5 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
hmm yeah why would you make an age below 13 public indeed xD

I think you would be a good moderator .o.

I'm more specialificated into chat-modding (yush I got experience :dummy: I'm a moderator at some pokemon game site C: ) then this kind of moderating e-e that's harder to me somehow (I have been a forum moderator somewhere but.... no :c )

I'm not sure uou asking for a high position is (not always) often a form of being greedy/immature uou most of the times you are being asked to gain such a responsibility after showing what you truely can mean for them right? .o.

I don't think it's greedy or immature if you'd want to become a staff member here. You'd have to prove your identity and sollicitate (online), just like with another job. Is that an immature thing to do? I don't really think so, you really have to prove you mean it :P
