Camping on Secondlife?

12 posts in this topic

I thought it was against rules?

Yet, i still see groups and people making camping products.

 

So is it against rules or not?

Traffic gaming (i.e. paying for traffic) is indeed against the rules. Camping products are still allowed though. People who rez them in locations that aren't listed in search don't violate the ToS. Of course everyone knows that most buyers will rez them in commercial locations, but you can't outlaw glue because kids sniff it to get high I guess.

So does that mean the chairs that give money when you sit on them for so long.. like $1 per 10mins are against rules?

Camping was never against the rules.  Gaming traffic was against the rules.  The search engine is so screwed up now that it's self gaming with or without traffic :smileyvery-happy:

I've read the Terms of Service several times and the Community Standards, neither forbids Camping.

I found an archived clarification on Camping by Jack Linden, and a related Bot policy.

Maybe they can't outlaw glue.........yet!!  They sure can try though.  When was the last time you had a good Oreo cookie?  Or how about a good juicy hamburger?  Anyone remember how good Mickey D's french fries used to taste?

 

Yeah, they get around to glue sooner or later.  :matte-motes-big-grin:

It depends on the motive (and the result) of the Resident who creates the camping area.

The rules have many layers, if the camping spot disturbs the peace or is an unfair use of system resources, an AR might be filed by a Resident who shares the Region.

If a private Region owner wants to set up a camping site, and the owner doesn't own a store or Advertise in classified and doesn't show land in search; that owner is not gaming traffic.

I believe if you use bots and they are set to scripted agent it's also legal.  It's a mess to say the least.

The definitive answer to your question is no. Camping is perfectly legal, and so it should be. It's still around but nothng like as much as it used to be. It's because it used to be beneficial to the land owners, but now it's not - not unless the land owners are breaking the rules, that is.
