Fucking 12 Year Olds!

:iconnavagon:
Navagon Featured By Owner May 30, 2008
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've already predicted the slew of pedobears the title alone will generate. :hmm:

But I have to ask: what the fuck is with all the 12 year olds on this site?
Can't dA make it so that anyone who claims to be 12 or under is auto-banned? Just fill that little box with anything less than 13 and down comes the ban hammer. Perfect. It would make things a lot easier, that's for sure.

But no. Instead we have to put up with their shitty fan arts they spew all over the site in the meantime. What's with that shit anyway? Doesn't anyone have an original thought any more? Unimaginative wankers, the lot of them.

Oh, and I shoved the tl;dr up your arse. If it's important to you, feel free to reach in after it.

an age ban wouldn't work.

they'd pretend they were older.

An age ban is already in effect. They do pretend to be older, but then many slip up and tell the truth.

hmm...what if (and someone is no doubt going to flame me for saying this, but I'll say it anyway). what if they completely take away the whole anime part?

dA needs popularity to survive and grow. They're not going to remove something that is still incredibly popular.

that's true, but unfortunately it's mostly popular with 13 year olds.

dA's already made quite a name for itself, but maybe it should make its standards higher. okay, that sounds very egotistical of me, and I'm not saying that my 'art' is good, but there are people out there that are much worse than I...so I suppose all I'm saying is that people need to realise that while this site of social, that doesn't mean you can just upload any old happy-snap or doodle in the margins of your exercise book.

See, the only ones that I associate with, are the ones who take DevArt seriously and actually post good art.

But I have seen a lot of the ones you're talking about... but I wouldn't dump them all in the same group is all. :shrug:

I only recently turned 13, hun. It's not that bigger deal. I made alot of my artwork WHEN I WAS STILL 12.

Good for you. I didn't mention quality of artwork though. Why do you think I specifically wrote "12 year olds", rather than say ';preteens'?

It's a matter of the legality of the thing. 12 year olds shouldn't be here in any sense, if for no other reason than the illegality of them being here.

Not all 12 year olds on here are like that.
I joined when I was twelve; I didn't post shitty fanart.
Now I'm pissed because people make stupid generalizations. Quit it, and get the hell over it.

It's pointless complaining about it. You must have lied about your age when signing up. Which means your registered date of birth is still a lie.
So you're breaking one of the more integral site rules just by being here at all.

I do kinda agree. The halls of Deviant Art are polluted with bad fan art. And yes, generally, younger deviants draw them. I'm glad the Internet was practically non existent when I was 12, otherwise I would also have filled my page with crap. I find it rather encouraging that so many kids draw and show their drawings to the world. Time and practice will make them better artists and hopefully someday fans will imitate their art.

But yeah, it does annoy me when I'm trying to look for some inspiration and find nothing but anatomically disproportionate manga characters I don't recognize.

I've got nothing against a little bit of fan art at all. But the number of people who do nothing but is overwhelming.

12 yr olds that fuck?

Oh yes.
I hate it, shouldn't they realize that the site is for 13+ and blocks them from continuing to register until they change the year of birth. :/ And they continue to join and add their age under their profile info.

i haet how dey haf 2 type lyk dis.

On this one site, you enter under 13, you can't try and make an account on that computer for a day to a week (I forgot which.)

Lulz. Thank God I was 14 when I joined (which was this year! xD)

Yep. With dial up it changes every time you connect. With cable it can be changed by 'repairing' the connection. I'm not so sure if it changes otherwise. But it might do.

Alternatively, a proxy would change it completely.

I think it would help if when someone is underage banned the staff tells them that the ban will be lifted when they turn 13 and that making another account is called ban evasion and it will stop them from being able to come back.

It's one thing when I have to report an underage user, it's another when I have to report them again because they're very open about who they used to be. I feel bad that they're stopping themselves from ever having a chance to come back.

I think they give a reason on the user page (only visible to the account owner). So they might explain that there.

They do give one but I don't think it explains that you get your account back when you turn 13. If it did why do I always see ban evasion accounts of the 12 year olds I report?

Because most 12 year olds are dumb? In any case, they're not coming back at all if they ban evade.

I don't get how it matters.

Let them be unimaginative...damn, how much do you expect from 12 year olds? The average 12 year old doesn't do much art at all past drawing giraffes that look like teapots.

I have met some awesome artists on this site who were around the 12 year age too, it'd be a shame to kill all of them off the site just because you had to witness some things you don't like...oh, and where did you get the plug-in that forces 12 year old produced fanart onto your monitor without you doing anything? I'd like to see that, it'd be fun.

There is the slight matter of it being illegal for them to be here. There is also the matter of why it's illegal.

Just because something's illegal don't mean it's bad.

Well, like I said, there are reasons behind its illegality. Weed isn't nearly as damaging as tobacco, but that's another debate.
