FAQ244 | COPPA Amount Change

Per a recent changelog entry

Change messaging that we authorize $1 vs $0.01 for coppa. Correctly check if the auth worked.

COPPA credit authorizations are changing. So the amount in FAQ 244 needs to change too.

"The easiest method of verification is by credit card authorization. To do this, you will need to log into your account and follow the instructions at http://www.livejournal.com/agecheck/. You will be prompted for your parent or guardian's email address, and they will be given the opportunity to enter their credit card details. The system will attempt to authorize the card for the amount of USD $0.01 $1.00, but will not actually make the charges; it will simply verify your information and the existence of the card in question. The card will not be charged, nor will the card number be saved or otherwise stored. A verification link will then be sent to the parent or guardian's email address, and clicking that link will activate your account."
