you should have received this email and we are posting it here as reference (particularly the links). it’s interesting that they send an email out about a policy change to every single account but could not send emails out to estate owners when they announced the OpenSpace changes (they did send one out 18 days after the fact). bitter?
well a bit, but this illustrates how much importance (and press time) they are giving the adult issue
makes great press and shows how “sensitive” they are to these adult issues. interestingly, for something that supposedly is only 2 to 4% of the grid (Linden Lab numbers), they are certainly putting a lot of energy toward this (our comments in italics next to links) =p
Dear Second Life Resident,
As Second Life continues to grow, it’s essential that we serve the needs of our worldwide community by striking the right balance between maintaining the diversity of user-generated content and providing ways for each resident to control what they do and see while inworld.
So, after six months of research and gathering feedback, we’ve now implemented a new policy around adult content. The gist of this policy is that general content and adult content will now be more clearly separated, and residents will be given enhanced levels of control over their personal experiences.
Our goal, as always, is to continue making Second Life better for everyone. We’ve included more detailed information in the links below, and if you have any questions or comments after reading please let us know.
