Why 21 and not 18?
Being able to determine how old someone is in an online environment can be challenging enough without the usual verification methods. We do apologize for the inconvenience. If you are between 18 and 21, you can still apply without any adverse consequences, and we may add you to the group before you turn 21 at our discretion. The best way for us to gauge your maturity is reviewing your activity in the Wizard101 Central community, so the more you participate, the better we are able to judge and decide to add you before age 21.
Willfully dishonest children under 18, however, may be banned entirely from applying in the future as there is no acceptable excuse. If you can read well enough to fill out the application, then you can clearly see that you must be 21 or older to join and at least 18 to apply.
