I was on the internet before I was 13, but I only went where my parents let me go back then (I was only a kid, after all). The only problem I had due to being young was on a kids' game about pet pixel ponies and a bunch of atheist adults decided to attack me due to my personal beliefs. But even then, my little kid mind knew they couldn't actually hurt me through my computer screen so I just reported them to the game's moderator and moved on with life. They got banned, lol.
I say it depends on the kid individually whether or not they're mature enough to handle what they might bump into online.
Maturity is the one that is needed to be judge, unfortunately we can't base on every internet function to identify that. The real mature kiddos won't let anyone have the knowledge of them being under-age, thus some youngsters on internet had the ability, take an example, digital arts. Besides, we're all humans and the only difference being youngsters to seniors are basically maturity change and sorts. Even the senior can be a bunch of immature dudes; (Example, rabid bronies, weird creepypasta fangirls, annoying homestuck spam).
But yes, maybe age below 9 can be a bit risky since sexual and violence being feature on this page. 10 and above? It's the fact of maturity since themselves must've known at least sexual reproduction and going through puberty, with talents to express. 13+ and above is reliable, but to be honest, it's just the same as being 10 and above, I guess.
Hmm i sorry but i disagree, as long as you are mature and know well what your doing you have every right to be on the internet and deviantart so maby you need to get the fuck off the internet, cuz in my opinion NO ONE has the right to tell other people to get off the internet if under age. And like JTKLover13 said''Just cause someone is under 13 doesn't mean you're TOO young for the internet'' get the fuck over it.

I think matters on maturity, not age. Say there was an underaged kid, but never did anything wrong on here. Would you report them? I wouldn't, because some underaged kids are mature enough to be on here.
lmfao fuck off if you're under 13 you don't belong on this website because ITS THE FUCKING LAW there are websites made FOR kids; fucking use them you're really mature yknow, really showing your 16 years of life (!)
