Moreover, in order to comply with California state laws and Discord Terms Of Service, we define minors as anyone below 18 years old regardless of the age of consent defined by your local laws. Whenever your local age of consent is either higher or lower than 18 years old, our server requires you to be over 18 years old regardless.
In most cases, anyone who turns out to be under 18 years old will be immediately kicked from our community, so they can return once they turn 18. If such person comes back to our server despite still being underage we will proceed to ban such person immediately. People banned for breaking this rule will stay banned even if they turned 18.You are not allowed to joke about being under 13 years old
