I would if I knew how (if you want to report an underaged deviant, this is how to do it: fav.me/d4dcqqz )

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.

I didn't even knew there was an age limit. I guess I'll them if I found some, but I don't know.

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>

Yea, that annoys me too... The community becoming more immature isn't much of a good thing.

I don't judge them off their age, I only block/report anyone if they're being really big assholes or something.

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's avatar

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.

Yep my thoughts exactly
I didn't think about people tricking them though, that's a scary thought...
SpitfiresOnIce's avatar
SpitfiresOnIceHobbyist Digital Artist
Yea, I mean, you never know what else they could give out, it could all be used against them. They have to learn to be more careful online.

Yeah they really do, not that safe of a world we live in
