(Note I tried posting this but it seemingly disappeared, so If you see a duplicate of this my bad). Probably half the userbase is under 13. Some don’t know it’s not allowed. Most of them say the most vulgar things, they’d probably laugh at NSFW content. The COPPA rule says a child can be under 13, as long as they have parental permission and supervision, with the guardian having full management of the account. Roblox and google have that, you need to submit a parent’s email and the parents can manage their child’s account. Discord should be the same. Discord is popular for children for a lot of the same reason as adults. To keep up on games and their communities, to join different communities, to keep in touch with all their friends, to manage their own server, and discord can even be used for school and work purposes. Some have jokes about being underage and wrongfully disabled. Discord is just as useful to children as adults, a lot of games that use discord are games for those under 13, it’s not fair if these children cannot use discord for their favorite games while adults can, especially if it’s a kid friendly game. I’m not asking for this immediately, nor am I asking this to unban all U13 accounts. Take your time with this, consider it, and think about it carefully. I do not care how long it takes, I simply think it is a better idea for both the users and company. Since children Would be allowed on it, discord would grow in popularity since children can use it safely, inspiring more younger kids to use it, while children who want to use it won’t have to worry about being banned or using it unsupervised. I am asking you that you consider this carefully and slowly, take as long as you want.
