I was in a moderate level public sandbox the other day editing my avatar's appearance. Is it okay to do this?

Well apparently I wasn't  alone because I suddenly found myself trapped in a cage and shot up into the sky with another player messaging me that I was a pervert (my avatar doesn't even have genitals), and how DARE I edit my appearance in a public sandbox...disgusting. 

Is this normal? 

Also, where are players supposed to edit their avatar's appearance if not in a public sandbox 🤔?

yes it is ok to edit yourself in a sandbox

the next time somebody griefs you with a cager, abuse report them

there are lots of Linden Rez Zone parcels along the mainland roads and also in the Linden oceans.  Suggest that you find one that is quite isolated. Find rez zones in the Search. keyword: Linden Rez Zone

You are probably using the default viewer? I am using Firestorm, that has some interesting chat commands.

In a sandbox, you may want to get out the way of peoples eyes. Type "gth 2000" or any number in the chat bar, and you are teleported up to the height you have typed in. You are falling now, but type in "rezplat" and a solid plywood platform is rezzed under your feet.

Well - it's SL - there is a fair amount of idiots around  - so yes - quite normal. 😁

If you sit on ground nothing will move you around. You'll behave like a solid block of concrete. 

If griefing was not allowed in that sandbox then you can AR any offender. Don't expect that anything will happen instantly though.

Hello and Welcome to SL! I would like to share with you and other newbies this Landmark: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Uli/93/22/33

I have four small parcels set up as changing rooms. They are set with a 5 minute auto return so you can rez out boxes to open, a pose stand and as long as you are the only one on that parcel, no one can see you.  It is also located close to the New Citizens Area which is helpful to new SL'ers. Hope this will be helpful for you and other newbies.

Thank you, I'm a noob so I thought maybe I misunderstood. Thanks for straightening me out ^^

No.  No no no no no.  You are NOT a noob.  You are new to the game, thus making you a newbie.  A noob is a pejorative term for someone prone to boorish behavior -- the best example being experienced players who harass new players.  What's more, you've now had your first official encounter with a Second Life twit, meaning that you've "leveled up", as it were, beyond being a newbie.  Because you haven't really played Second Life until you've met a few idiots.

Way back before I had my own land I used to fly way out to the edge of the world, go underwater, and do all my clothing changes there.  This was back when editing one's appearance was a cinch.  That worked well until the day I logged in and found the Linden land ocean in that region had been converted into actual land -- I was underneath someone's house lol

OK, @Nova Convair, right here is an example of the constant learning that goes on in this game, a way in which even experienced players are new:  I've been playing SL for over 14 years and never new about Firestorm command lines until JUST NOW.  You learn something every day in Second Life.  🙂  Thanks @Marianne Little for these great tips!

I use this all the time but just to add to what @Marianne Littlesaid, Fly first before hitting gth 2000 or you'll end up falling back down.  Been there, done that.

Or they can search directly for fitting rooms / dressing rooms, also freebie stores, as the large ones have dressing rooms. It offers more privacy than a sandbox or any random rez zone, and won't annoy anyone. Especially giving such advice to go to vehicle rez zones to rez random stuff and edit appearance is the worst idea, that's how you can annoy the most people, and that's what the OP wanted to avoid.

 @Robberinthemuseum If you use the keywords "dressing room" in the inworld Search on the Places tab, it will give more than 20 options right away where you should be able to change clothes / edit appearance without any issues anytime.
