Wh3n you joined you would have put your date of birth so they know you are over 18. In preferences, on Firestorm and there should be an equivalent on the official viewer, on the first page, you specify what regions you want to enter. Be sure to change to general, moderate and adult. You need to do the same thing on the marketplace. Preferences tab is under Avatar, the first listing on the top left hand corner. That should sole your problem

My Avatar can not enter all regions and buy freely what I like because after what I have been told it is not age verified
How do I verify that I'm an adult, please?

it could be just a matter of settings ....check the maturity setting in "search"  "preferences" and "marketplace"
(one note .. region owners can restrict access by several options... age can be one! .. you can't change that or ask fo access by LL)
When you can't change those, you'll need to contact support.

Preferences are and have been set to adult but at the search adult is not marked.
So I went to what you showed and set it all to adult in those tabs.
But still when i go to the main search window it shows as it was. No adult.

Is there something else I can set to solve this, pls?

I think putting your payment info on file, even if you delete them right after might solve your issue and get you verified.

Not sure, I don't remember having this issue, good luck anyway, I hope it won't last 😅

I've never heard of anyone having their account on hold mere!y for the way they look.  LL will have sent an email telling you why and what to do next.  Check the email you used for your account and the spam folder also.  

From the title of the thread you chose to post in, I can hazard a guess as to why your account is on hold.

That violation is not just about how an avatar "looks", but also activities and/or conversations and/or proximity to certain situations which involve a child or teen avatar.  You might want to take a look at the SL Terms and Conditions, particularly under "4.  Conduct by Users of Second Life", sub-section (viii) and the policy that is linked to from there. 

There isn't anything anyone here in the Forums can do about your situation - we are all just residents, like you.  Look at the notification you received and see if it says anything about how, or if it's even possible, to get more information and/or appeal their decision.  

 

 

(There is a link to the SL Terms and Conditions at the bottom of this web page)

How mature your friends look isn't important when they were with you in your teen avatar, they were considered as participating. Man Cave event has adult furniture. Did you stand close to a bed/chair while others were "testing" it? Did you test it too? Was somebody without clothes? With or without private parts out?

You will have to plead with LL about this. Somebody flied an AR on you and your friends and they probably included screenshots and/or chat with adult content.

It is up to LL to undo the ban or not. You should think carefully about what you and your friends were doing and explain why when you call LL.

I will explain the best I can  because I'm just finding out the guy that came on to my land that I didn't know reported us. my land is private but I didn't turn on my security because my friends was there but he took a picture of me with the teen avatar when I was on the couch with my friend but I do photoshoot with that avatar for skin brands and I'm also married with kids on that account I will truly do everything I can to own up to something I didn't know can do this much damage I am researching about this action that they sent me cause I have no clue about it.

So on the adult couch doing adult couch things with a teen avatar (child).  That's what a.g.e play is in a nutshell.

Sitting would not be a problem unless his picture also showed that the couch was an adult rated piece or your avatar engaged in an adult animation.  

For instance, the placement of avatars appearing to represent minors in proximity to "sex beds" or other sexualized graphics, objects, or scripts would violate our Community Standards.

Unless the person who reported you tells you that they did (and even if someone did say that) you might not ever know who actually reported you - it's my understanding that Linden Lab does not tell you that information. 

Even if your land is private, that are some  behaviors that are still against the Terms and Conditions. 

Whatever other avatars you have on that account are irrelevant to a situation where your actions with one of your avatars are against the Terms and Conditions. 

They do expect that people will, hopefully, at least skim through the Terms and Conditions when they click the button to accept them.  The more that you have invested in SL - land, business, multiple avatars, large inventories - the more it is in one's best interest to at least scan through the Terms and Conditions, if not fully read through them.

Doesn't have to, no. Teen avatars can't even be in proximity to adult furniture even if they're not sitting on it. If that couch contains adult animations, that's a violation regardless of whether those animations were in use or not.

There is no way to know if a couch contains adult content by observing a couch.

Which is why I posted from the official wiki, also.  Technically, it is against the rules but unless the person making the complaint included the piece of furniture's info in the picture, not easily proved and why there might have been more than sitting involved.

I'm surprised nobody commented on the skin photoshoot thing, because he was most likely only in a swimsuit/underwear at best. This would not go well with everything else.

The entire thing is beyond questionable.  Even the name chosen for their new avatar.  Which, it seems, may have been banned, too since it's showing now as unavailable.
