Age Verification badge to prove a user's age
So perhaps discord can implement a verification process in which would help figure out who is 18+. This feature will give anyone who is proven to be 18+ a badge that will let other users know they are an adult, but it will not tell their exact age. This could also be better than having individual discord servers deal with this on their own, because we all know people have trust issues with strangers in an online server.
Options in how it can be done by discord staff:
- User may have to provide valid ID, and discord must have trusted staff dedicated to handling these processes.
- Users may have to provide a college ID card or driver's license.
- Users may have to answer a set of questions to prove their age or ID.
- Users may have to provide links to social media to help prove their age. If this does not help in proving the user's age, the other options above may be considered.
Those who have been age verified will:
- receive a badge on their profile that proves they are 18+. It will likely say "Verified Adult."
- be unrestricted from NSFW channels and content by default.
- be allowed to switch the privacy setting from "Keep me safe" to "My friends are nice" or "I live on the edge."
Those who refuse to verify or are found to be underage will:
- not receive a badge on their profile that proves they are 18+.
- be denied access to NSFW channels or content.
- be denied the ability to change their privacy settings from "Keep me safe."
- have any explicit images or links sent to them via DM blocked by a bot. (This also means anyone who is of age will have NSFW images or links blocked by a bot if the receiver of the message is not age verified.)
none of those except for the IDs are verifiable, and verifying those would take a lot more than the current employees (who are all too busy making discord anyways) to do. think about maybe how discord wouldn't be able to do this next time.
Everyone so far has a good point.
Though now I honestly don't even know why I tried to come up with a solution to combat pedophilia and underage users viewing NSFW content. I was hoping this would help discord, but I guess what I got is not so bright of an idea. I'll need to think of another way.
Thank you for your input.
I'm not mad, just disappointed my idea didn't turn out too well.4
i dont think so-3
None of the game related programs like Steam/Epic Store does a real age/ID verification why should Discord do it?-2
I Think this is a very nice idea. This would make jobs a LOT easier for NSFW servers when it comes to verifying ages. However; like others have said; discord wont have the time and resources for this. Probably The closest we can get to someone probably having their age verified is having a nitro subscription, but even then thats still kind of iffy. Instead of having discord staff verify this, there should be a community hub where other users can verify others.
TL;DR - Make custom badges for users to have instead of just the default HypeSquad and Nitro badges.
Community 18+ badges would be helpful verifying users age to make sure they're confirmed to be of legal age to view NSFW content. Having others verify your age for your badge would definitely make your life easier. This could have the possibility of being cheated, but it the end of the day its just an idea i had.7
They could outsource the work and pass the cost on to us as a 1 time fee.1
While I understand that Discord wouldn't have the time and resources to verify everyone's proof of age, I do think at the very least it'd be nice if users were required to register their date of birth so that 18+ or minor info can be visible. Sure, people will still lie, but much less so than before since a lot of member only think to lie about their age once they want 18+ access on a server.6
I like this idea. But add than better security for users. To not abuse the thing0
My profile has given me 4 years while I am 29 has blocked me all. moderation doesn't respond and I don't know if my emails are leaving!1
I think that the most plausible/viable solution would be a trusted third-party verification source, and with a small one-time fee (such as $1.00 USD), that could then pass the verification code back to Discord to apply to a profile flag that servers or individual server channels could then use to allow or deny access to adult content.
By "trusted", I am referring to being trusted by Discord to manage age verification, as well as trusted by users to maintain their privacy. There are private verification services available, but they seem to only function by use of bots, and would then require individual servers to invite and/or subscribe to the use of the bot for fees which most server admins might not easily be able to afford. The few I have found and looked into want a monthly subscription fee which scales based on number of users in a server, which can be very prohibitive. If something official and affordable could be arranged by Discord officially, and paid for by a one-time user fee, it could be better and with more widespread usage throughout all of Discord.
It's a good idea overall, I just think that the OP hadn't had the time to explore all options, as well as consider the efforts and time already required for just the development and continued operations of Discord as it currently stands.-1
Y'all are acting like bots can't scan pictures. A bot could easily scan a photo ID and a picture of the user, match the facial geometry, check the birthdate section, and then verify from there. And if there's a mistake then a Discord staff member would need to get involved.3
Sounds very good except that it's kinda too strict. I say that anyone who is at least 13 can change their privacy settings. Servers should be able to restrict server or individual channel access to 18+ if they choose. A verified adult badge, I think, should only be private and not to be seen by everyone else, kinda like on roblox. For example, if someone makes a server that has 15 channels, and one of the channels if for nsfw only, the person should have the right to lock the nsfw server to 18+. Restricting privacy settings to 18+ is unnecessary because I think all people who agree to Discord TOS should be able to change their privacy settings.1
