Text Chat for players with under age 13 accounts can only be turned on by a parent/guardian over age 18. The parent/guardian must validate his/her age by buying a subscription or crowns with a valid credit card.

It's a good thing I saw this before Zeke did!

As we've repeatedly stated (and even in this same thread, young Wizard!) Text Chat for players with under age 13 accounts can only be turned on by a parent/guardian over age 18. The parent/guardian must validate his/her age by buying a subscription or crowns with a valid credit card.

I can't either. I find it unfair that kids under the age of twelve cannot get text chat at all !

If you got the subscription with gc it will not allow you to use the feature
And if bought online will have to enable it but must have approval from parent/guardian

I'ts kinda confusing but here...

1. you must be a member.

2.when you login DIRECTLY under your name you see a button that says "my account". CLICK.

3.(i think this is kinda dumb but) it says parental controls password on the side. your parents didnt MAKE a password in the 1st place so click "forgot password?"

4. a new password is sent to your parents email account. have your parents find the new pass then type in password.

5.enable text chat. (i dont even have text but i did this LOL)

Well I don't have Text Chat but you will need to CONFIRM that you are over 13 by clicking on what age you are when you register for the game. After you personalize your wizard, you will be asked real life information, including your age. If you clicked an age younger than 13, you will be forbidden from using Text Chat unless your mum or dad buys you a membership or crowns, which confirms that a 18+ person is allowing you to have Text Chat. Even if you in real life is older than 13, you will not have Text Chat if you clicked an age younger than that in the game itself.
