COPPA Compliancy


Well-known member
I'm not sure how many forums use this, but COPPA compliancy? Might not be for 1.0, but maybe 1.1 or 1.2?


As long as I can deny registrations below 13 I'm cool. :D
Yeah, exactly :p

Glad to hear there's an age restriction option.
COPPA, no longer valid as far as I understood the news article.

That's COPA, as far as I know.
I think the initial COPPA rules were not to just block users under 13, but if they were 13 you would need to get parental permission to allow them in, so you would have to ask for their parents email address and then would email them for approval...

But I think a simple block for under 13's is good enough, unless there are sites out there that actually target the younger audience and still need to abide by COPPA...
