Change Account type

When I created my account, I chose an "educational" account, since the friend that referred me said there was no difference.

Now that replit apps are created, I can't post anything. How do I change my account type?

The Replit Team is currently discussing this. The reason some features of Replit are restricted for educational accounts is that many people under the age of 13 use Replit educational accounts for school; however, users under 13 need restrictions in place to comply with COPPA laws.

I would recommend creating a new account to post for now.
