SLC ADVICE ON BEING A KID IN SL



THINGS YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHEN BEING A KID IN SECONDLIFE!

WANT TO BE A KID IN SECOND LIFE?
This list of important advice was written for Kid Avs new to Second Life, please read :)



1). Contrary to what most people outside second life think, there is more to SL than just SEX and if sex is all you have come to SL for then you are missing out on what SL Child Avatars find great about SL. A member of Linden Lab has stated (although it is not in the SL community Standards) that if someone captures a pic or chatlog of a Child Avatar engaging in depictions of sexual ageplay even in their own home, then you will have your account deleted no questions asked.

(TOS - 2.6 Linden Lab may suspend or terminate your account at any time, without refund or obligation to you.)




2). If you dont feel complete unless you are anatomically correct, refrain from wearing it in a public place, this applies even to adult avatars!



3). Consider what groups you join. Some people judge you for the names of the groups you are a member of. The SLC does not stop people being in the SLC because of the groups they have joined, but you do risk distaste from other Second Life Residents.





4). It was discovered that places had been created by ADULT avatar's who were interested in luring Kid avatars to engage in sexual activities. The Child AVs who fell for this ended up having their pictures posted all over the net and in the end they deleted their accounts and left SL leaving behind a media circus. Simple really, just do not go to these kinds of places! Linden Labs polices prohibits these sorts of places from being in SL, if you stumble upon such a place ABUSE REPORT IT!


5) SL residents have been told to report Underage Users. Some people are ignorant and will think you are underage just because you are a child avatar. Linden Lab would LIKE ALL child Avatars to state their TRUE REAL WORLD AGE in your profile to try and prevent mistaken reports.



Thank you for reading.




The SLChilden was formed to bring all the Kid AVs together to exchange advice on how best to behave in SL, in order to cause little trouble for ourselves and warn of people who would take advantage of its members.

For once something on this blog I agree with, being an SL parent to a number of kids and an uncle to a lot more (mostly furries)If you are going to be a kid avatar make sure you do have a disclaimer in your profile, if someone is soliciting you mute them and file an abuse report. Remember SL is a happy place to get away from the stresses of RL, keep the advice coming Loki :)
