AccountAge

Player

int

The AccountAge is a Player property that describes how long ago a player’s account was registered in days. It is set using the Player/SetAccountAge function, which cannot be accessed by scripts.

This property is useful for conditionally showing new Roblox players content such as tutorials.


Code Samples


Account Age Mark

This code sample adds a mark to players showing about how old their account is. The mark uses a player’s account age to determine if they are a New Player, Veteran Player or Regular Player.

local Players = game:GetService("Players")

local MAX_AGE_NEW_PLAYER = 7 -- a week
local MIN_AGE_VETERAN = 365 -- one year

-- This function marks a part with text using a BillboardGui
local function mark(part, text)
	local bbgui = Instance.new("BillboardGui")
	bbgui.AlwaysOnTop = true
	bbgui.StudsOffsetWorldSpace = Vector3.new(0, 2, 0)
	bbgui.Size = UDim2.new(0, 200, 0, 50)
	local textLabel = Instance.new("TextLabel")
	textLabel.Size = UDim2.new(1, 0, 1, 0) -- Fill parent
	textLabel.Text = text
	textLabel.TextColor3 = Color3.new(1, 1, 1)
	textLabel.TextStrokeTransparency = 0
	textLabel.BackgroundTransparency = 1
	textLabel.Parent = bbgui
	-- Add to part
	bbgui.Parent = part
	bbgui.Adornee = part
end

local function onPlayerSpawned(player, character)
	local head = character:WaitForChild("Head")
	if player.AccountAge >= MIN_AGE_VETERAN then
		mark(head, "Veteran Player")
	elseif player.AccountAge <= MAX_AGE_NEW_PLAYER then
		mark(head, "New Player")
	else
		mark(head, "Regular Player")
	end
end

local function onPlayerAdded(player)
	-- Listen for this player spawning
	if player.Character then
		onPlayerSpawned(player, player.Character)
	end
	player.CharacterAdded:Connect(function ()
		onPlayerSpawned(player, player.Character)
	end)
end

-- Listen for players being added
for _, player in pairs(Players:GetPlayers()) do
	onPlayerAdded(player)
end
Players.PlayerAdded:Connect(onPlayerAdded)
