    1. You have no proof.

    2. Look at the section you are in, this is the API section.

    3. Hypesquad Events or just regular Hypesquad?

    You must be underage to be using this app I assume from the way you're responding.

    1: Kids tend to be uneducated on topics, especially about online safety, and even if they are edcuated they probably don't understand the consequenses
    2: It can! They legally have to ban them due to them being under the age of 13, if something bad happens to the child or if they don't include the fact that all users must be 13+, they can get into a lawsuit and from what I know of, lose Discord all together. Either way, the law doesn't care about opinions, it justifies right and wrong
    3: Telling me that what I'm saying is dumb is uncalled for and also not a good response, just saying

    Kids are stupid, that's why its a law.

    It's not discrimination, stop being slow.

    Lavaman, just because you don't agree with the law doesn't meant you dont have to follow it. Also, there are (sadly) pedophiles and other terrible people on Discord that will abuse or use kids, also why COPPA exists

    It is COPPA law, which is why Discord cannot allow users under 13. By allowing users that they are very aware are under 13, this can lead to legal trouble.

    As stated many times, it is COPPA law. Just because someone doesn’t agree with the law does not mean they don’t have to follow it.

    COPPA prohibits websites from collecting data from users under 13 without parent permission. Signing up, sending messages, etc. are considered collecting data. And Discord (and many websites) don’t do parent permission exception to avoid disputing if a user has had permission from parents.

    Take YouTube for an example. They were fined for collecting data from users watching videos that were clearly towards kids under 13. Yes, we all probably get that COPPA regulations suck, but it is the law.

    Lavamab, Discord is legally abided to do this due to COPPA (of course proof is needed which wasnt provided from my knowledge)

    You have no proof. Discord does not ban users unless they have evidence a user is likely under 13 (such as mentioning own age).

    > She has hype squad and is very sensitive with cursing, dark jokes and people correct their grammar. I think you should deal with her.

    This isn't against Discord TOS.

    Submit a report to discord then, this is the API section of discord and is not meant for reporting individual users.

    Lol, you don't have any proof so why would you report them? Don't report a user just because you think they're underage.

    The blocking I can explain- she doesn't want to be called under the age of 13 and you're just annoying her about it. Just leave her alone lol.

    a) "seems about" isn't really good enough. Also, it's hard to get actual "proof" of someone being underage, except for them explicitly stating that. Discord cannot and should not judge a user's age based on an image of them, so that wouldn't work. Discord staff also generally don't do much about a general claim that a user's self is underage, as they could be joking or could be lying about their age for whatever reason.

    b) You are in the API section: multiple users have already said this.

    c) "please take my word about it" definitely works on a platform such as Discord...

    Report it to discord. Don’t make a forum post about it....

    Also, this is a feedback forum anyways, it isn’t supposed to be for reporting violations or help.

    I got banned from 7 discord servers for being "underage" by the same admin. I had never once stated my age nor any of my personal info on any of those servers. Actually, I've never even interacted in one of those servers. How can I get unbanned for being "underage"? Keep in mind they don't even have any evidence.

    You're kind of a lunatic if you're trying to ban people who are "underage" you have no proof, I am 13 and got banned for jokingly saying I'm 12 and I like Fortnite.

    If you have any type of message id which showcases her admitting to being -13 submit a report to discord 

    If you do not, I'd simply recommend informing any server mods (which share a server with you and her) that she has a high chance  of being -13, so if she does admit to being -13 that the mods will take appropriate action and report the user to discord (while banning the user.)

    This is an API feedback forum. Your reports here are literally not going to accomplish a single thing as has been reiterated multiple times.

    Submit a report to Discord Trust and Safety if you have good evidence to indicate a user is underage.

    DO NOT REPORT HERE! REPORT TO TRUST AND SAFETY AT https://dis.gd/report (or https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/requests/new)!

    IF YOU REPORT PEOPLE ON THE FORUMS, THEY WILL NOT BE BANNED! NONE OF US ARE STAFF AND WE CANNOT DO ANYTHING!
