    No id say thats alright its just when theres 11 year olds and 10 year olds trying to host servers which is really what they shouldn't be doing in my opinion.

    I just find its not right for someone under 12 to ask for donations for their server as they need to understand how to use the donations wisely.
    Also someone under 12 running a server needs to deal will threats, Hackers and DDoSing which isn't right for a 12 year old under.

    I can hack but i dont hack multiplayer games, if u hack a server or someones account its weak, its just sad that players hack others. If u play flappy bird or something hacks are ok in my opinion

    If they're 12-ish or younger, or even any age, I think it's great if they are interested in programming or server and stuff like that, but when you're that young, it should be a private server for when they're friends come over or something like that, and not public servers with donations and stuff, esp. if it's hosted on their PC/network, because they don't understand how that lags the network, could use up bandwidth, could make their parents pay extra fees for using too much, etc.

    yeah, i get that, the thing is that there is nothing preventing that person from perpetuating abusive behaviour on the MCPE community as a whole..... you can get booted from a server, change your username - reapply, be a douche, get booted again and repeat that process indefinitely.

    PC version pretty much has a $25 price tag on being a douche-bag.. console version, same kind of thing except it's only $20...

    for PE it's just a matter of the inconvenience of having to get yourself a new email to login with...

    your purchase and ownership of the game is in no way tied to your in game identity... thus - douche-baggery can perpetuate indefinitely.

    Simple. Ask Mojang to add this feature to the multiplayer menu: If parental controls are enabled on the device, a parent has to enter the password to enable servers. No more hidden add a server button!! And it makes it even safer, too.
