You will have to file a support ticket, using the category Account Issue >> Account Creation Issues.  Be prepared for Linden Lab to be very skeptical.  It's hard to understand how anyone cannot know her own birthday, so they will probably expect you to present documentation to verify your age.  If you'd rather avoid the hassle, you can just be patient until the date you registered with says that you are 18.

In a date field you would be required to put in numeric values between 0 and 9 for each number.  So you say you are 23 years old and you would enter into the field four digits between 0 and 9 for each....those numbers would be 1 9 9 0.  You could make a typographical error on any one of those numbers.  For the first number (1) the only error that would remain a numeric value would be a 2.  Making the numbers you entered 2 9 9 0...........the software will reject that number since that date is 977 years from now.  For the second number the error could be either 8 or 0 making the number 1 8 9 0 or 1 0 9 0.......the software would probably reject that number too but maybe not (you'd be either 123 years old or 1023 years old.....but well over the 18 year old threshold to be an adult).  For the third number the typo could be, again, 8 or 0 making the number 1 9 8 0 (or 33 years old) or 1 9 0 0 (or 113 years old)........probably accepted but you'd still be over the 18 year old threshold.  And for the last digit the only numeric typo would be 9 making the date 1999............that date would reject because you would be 14 years old and you must be at least 16.

So you see why everyone is so skeptical of your honesty?  You didn't make a mistake at all.  What you want to do is to lie about your age so that you can get into mature and/or adult areas in SL.  A simple typo would probably not be difficult to get straightened out.........but you still will have to convince LL that it was an honest mistake.  Missing your birth date by 5 years just does not add up.  Which brings up something else.........do you not check what you enter into a form or application before submitting?  So many mistakes can be caught by the few seconds of re-reading what was entered. 

I'm with Lindal.......you'll probably have to wait until next year.  When you really do turn 18.
