If your Khan Academy account isn't automatically allowing you to participate in our Support Community, it's usually because we don't have an email address associated with your current Khan Academy account. Our community software (Zendesk) uses email addresses to link your Khan Academy account to your posts in the Support Community, so once you add an email to your Khan Academy account, you should be good to go. You can add an email address to your account in your Settings, under Linked Accounts.
There are some exceptions:
If a user is under 13, they have a child account and are restricted from leaving public comments in the Support Community to protect their privacy. More information on the differences between child and adult accounts can be found here. Anyone can reach our support team privately for help by filing a new ticket describing their situation.
If you have been banned from discussions on Khan Academy, you cannot participate in conversations in the Support Community. If you feel like you have been banned in error, please use this form to describe your situation.
