COPPA is the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. It states that any user under the age of 13 must have verifiable permission from their parent or guardian to be on a website.

If you are under 13, and do not wish to be in violation of COPPA, please have your parents provide a document stating the following (That is SIGNED and NOTARIZED) and mail it to the address below.

“I [parents name] give permission for my child, who is to be identified on as [username] and will sign up using [emailaddress] as their electronic mail address, to become a member of this site.”

While we no longer ask on signup if users are overage, CoSC is still a COPPA Compliant site that will never knowingly collect any form of personal information (including an email address) from a user under the age of 13. If at any time you are identified as a player under 13 and have not had your parents submit this statement of permission to Kitsu your account will be banned. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

    A forest clanner from Wisconsin, I’m just a programing dork who loved the warriors world. I’ve been a part of CoSC since the beginning in 2005 and this website is absolutely by brainchild. It’s been built over the years and something I’m incredibly proud of. I’m looking forward to helping all of you get settled into this version of the Warriors World.

    A mountain clanner from Montana, I am just a gal who is crazy about books and animals of all kinds. Writing is something that I pride myself on and in fact, have been able to make a small career out of, however writing simply for imagination's sake is my favorite. Which is why I love this site so much!
    I have been a part of the CoSC world since 2008 and it is very dear to my heart. I love making new friends and connecting with others that share the same passions that I do; so I look forward to getting to know you better and Rp'ing soon. Thanks for stopping by!
