Owning land can be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences in Second Life. Once you become a landowner, you truly become a part of the Second Life community, and can create and keep things inworld that will be there when you return. Your own land is a space you can customize however you want, and a canvas where your creations can come to life. Land in Second Life is a place to call home, where you can invite friends to hang out, hold events, and more. You can use many of the virtual items you purchase in Second Life—like clothes, accessories and cars—anywhere. But if you purchase a house, a garden, or an entire forest, you're going to need somewhere to put it: your own plot of land! Types of land How to buy land There are several ways to buy land: Buy a parcel on the mainland if you have a premium account. You get a free Linden Home with a premium account, which is a great way to get started with land ownership. See Linden Homes for more information. Buy an entire region (a private island). Instead of buying land, you can rent land: On a private estate - see Renting land from other Residents. On the mainland - see Renting a region for a special event. Buying mainland Linden Lab does not usually set land for direct sale on the mainland. However, there are two special cases in which you can obtain mainland parcels from Linden Lab: Auctions: Linden Lab regularly auctions mainland parcels via Second Life Land Auctions. Land owned on the mainland is subject to a land use fee (also known as a tier fee), which is a monthly charge in addition to premium membership. Abandoned land: In some special cases, Linden Lab sells abandoned mainland parcels to individual Residents. For more information, see Abandoned land. Remember that you can buy land from your fellow Residents, and if you want a whole region to yourself, you can buy a Private Region from the Land Store. Land owned by Governor Linden named "Protected Land" will not generally be terraformed or sold to Residents. Requirements To purchase mainland land in Second Life, you must have a premium account with current payment information on file, and your account must be in good standing. You may also be required to have a clean disciplinary record. As a premium account holder, you have 1024 square meters of tier, that is the ability to own 1024 square meters initially. For more information, see Land tier. A premium account also provides many other benefits. For more information, see Premium membership. Buying Private Regions A private region is a 256m x 256m piece of virtual land. Regions run on a single server and have their own set of controls beyond those provided to mainland parcel owners. For more information see: Buying Private Regions Private Regions Managing private regions Requirements By purchasing a Private Region, you are agreeing to pay the initial setup fee, plus monthly service fees for as long as you own the region. You are also agreeing to a restocking fee if you cancel your order. You will be charged the setup fee once the order is completed. Monthly fees begin 30 days from the date you complete your purchase. Procedure Once you find the land you want, buying it is easy: Right-click the parcel you want to purchase. Choose About Land. Click the Buy Land button. Review the purchase information. Click OK. Additional tips The following tips will help you purchase land wisely and confidently: Make sure you know exactly what you're purchasing! Press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-P on your keyboard to toggle parcel boundary lines. Right-click the parcel to bring up the About Land window, which shows you the land's Area in square meters. Look at the About Land window's General tab to see if objects are included in the sale. Check the Parcel land capacity entry in the About Land window's Objects tab. This indicates how much land impact the land can support before it stops allowing new objects to enter.. Important: If you don't own the land yet, the Region capacity entry is not a measure of the object usage you will receive! If the Advanced menu is active, try hiding objects by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Shift-1 on your keyboard to make sure there isn't a hidden "hole" in the property that you are unwittingly purchasing with the rest of the land. Make sure you're happy with the overall shape of the land. Most land in Second Life can only be raised 4m above or below its original position, and the previous owner may have already reached that limit. Land tier Land tier (often simply referred to as "tier) is a key concept of Second Life land ownership. "Tier" refers to the maximum amount of land you can own on the mainland, measured in square meters (m2). A premium account includes of 1024m2 tier, which can be used for a free Linden Home. Thus, the minimum tier that anyone can have is 1024m2. Note: Tier is not the land itself. It's your potential container to own land. "Available tier" or "free tier" (free meaning "remaining" not "free of charge") refer to the remaining, potential land you can own, not counting land you already own. For example, "My tier is 1024m2. I own a 256m2 parcel, so I have 768m2 of free tier. If I buy a 384m2 parcel, that leaves me with 384m2 of tier that's available." Think of it like this: each land parcel is a building block like Lego (larger parcels are bigger blocks), and tier is a box. Buying land "fills the box with blocks." Example For example, if you have "5,120m2 of available tier" — the premium account's included 1024m2 + 4,096m2 additional tier level — then you can own any combination of land parcels up to a total of 5,120m2. So owning a 1,024m2 parcel + a 2,048m2 parcel + another 2,048m2 parcel = 5,120m2 which completely fills your tier. Land use fees If you need more land, you must upgrade. Use the Land Use Fees page to update your tier level. Upgrading to a higher tier increases your land use fees, but you get a bigger "box for blocks." Increasing your tier level is sometimes called "tiering up." You are notified when purchasing a land parcel if buying it will increase your tier. Tier is connected to but not the same as land use fees. You pay land use fees for tier. Tier is not a currency like Linden dollars. This is especially important for new landowners to understand, as some experienced Residents use the term inaccurately. It's accurate to say "I pay for tier," or "I pay tier fees," but not "I pay tier." Log into your Second Life account summary to manage your land use fees and land. Land use tiers and pricing are shown in the Land Use Fees page. Any tier beyond the first full region is assigned in half-region increments at a rate of US$97.50 per half region. A higher level appears in your land use fees when you upgrade beyond a full region on the mainland. If you sell the land and move back to a tier of one full region or below, the system automatically tiers you down. Note: Private Region (island) fees are charged independently, and do not affect your land tier level. Exceptions Note the following exceptions to the general rules stated above: You can own a private estate yet not have a mainland tier. Group-owned land gets a 10% bonus tier. See Group-owned land for more information. Some Resident-owned private estates have their own distinct tier systems which are not part of Linden Lab's land use fees. If you are renting from such an estate, contact the owner or another appropriate Resident directly for assistance. Finding land to buy The inworld Search tool enables you to browse and filter a comprehensive database of real estate listings. Simply follow these steps: In the Viewer, choose World > Search. Choose Land & Rentals from the dropdown menu at the top of the Second Life Search window. You can search by keyword or leave the Search field blank. Click Search. A list of classified real estate ads appears. In the lefthand column, select For Sale. If you wish, filter your results by customizing theArea and Price fields and by indicating what kind of land you wish to buy in the Type dropdown menu. The filters update the listings automatically. Click on a listing to view more details. When you find a property that interests you, click Teleport to go explore it! Tip: Looking for land on the mainland near you? Select World > World Map to open the map, then select the Land for Sale checkbox. Nearby land for sale is highlighted on the map. Second Life's Auctions also list land parcels up for sale to the highest bidder. Auction parcels can sell for Linden Dollars (L$) as well as US dollars (USD$). Land sales in Private Regions The mechanics of buying and selling land in a Private Region are very similar to the process on the mainland. However, there are a few key differences that buyers and sellers should take into account when making a land transaction in a Private Region. Similarities As the seller, the Private Region owner can split parcels of the region and set them for sale. The technical steps for buying the land are identical. Differences Parcels in Private Regions are governed by covenants. A covenant is a kind of contract, defined by the owner of the Private Region, to which you must agree before buying the land. It may outline details such as local theme, rental fees, architectural regulations, and rules of behavior. Land purchased in a Private Region does not count against your land use tier, however the owner may charge you a fee for continuing use of the land. The Private Region owner may evict you from your parcel in a Private Region at any time. Private Region owners have absolute power over their estates and are within their rights to reclaim land as they see fit. Make sure to read your region's covenant closely for terms of use before you buy your parcel. Private Region owners have use of the Region/Estate window which includes such region access options as: Access restricted to Residents based on payment status Region maturity can be set to General, Moderate, or Adult Tip: If a region owner changes the maturity setting for their region, it may affect who can access your parcel and view search listings made from it. Read the region covenant and communicate with the region owner (or estate manager where applicable) to avoid any disruptions to your parcel settings or access. Land object capacity The number of objects (prims) that can exist on a region is restricted due to technology limitations. The corresponding calculation for mesh objects are different. See Calculating land impact for more information. Overview Each region of 256m x 256m (65536 square meters) supports a land capacity of 15,000. Divided evenly, this means that each region has a capacity of approximately 0.229 per square meter. In practical terms, this means a 512 square meter parcel can support up to a capacity of 117, a 1024 square meter parcel can support up to 234, and so forth. More than one parcel in a region All parcels belonging to the same owner (or group) in the same region share their land capacity. You can view this represented as Region capacity in the About Land window. In this way, it is possible for the Parcel land impact number to be higher than the Parcel land capacity number. To view the About Land window, stand on a parcel and select World > About Land. For information about objects on the land, select the Objects tab in the About Land window. Vehicles and parcel limits Objects that are Selected / sat upon do not count against the Parcel land capacity. This allows vehicles to pass freely through parcels that might not otherwise be able to support them. Remember that a Region can only support 15,000 objects, regardless of parcel settings- if a Region is full, you cannot drive a vehicle into it. Object bonus factor In Private Regions, the owner may set a Object Bonus to increase the land capacity of each parcel. This setting multiplies the number of capacity each parcel can support by the Bonus Factor. It is important to note that this does not increase the maximum capacity supported by the Region, which means that not all parcels in the Region will be able to reach their listed maximum capacity.

Premium account holders can get a free Linden Home, in addition to the other benefits of premium membership. For more information, see Premium membership. Themes Linden homes come in themed communities, each with choices of individual homes: Traditional homes Traditional suburban homes are arranged along tree-lined streets on 1024 sq m parcels. The homes are one and two-story buildings with shingle roofs, and in most models, a porch or patio area. A typical home has a two or more large rooms on the main floor and may have one or two upstairs. As described in a later section of this guide, you may use the House Controller on your parcel to choose among the styles pictured here, and you may use the house controller to change colors and details both inside and on the outside of the house. A traditional home is set back from the sidewalk and may have a hedge, a wall, or a low fence to set it apart from its neighbors. You may add to the planting or other landscaping elements on the parcel . Traditional homes are all within a convenient distance from communal park areas where you can join your friends for picnics, sports, or family activities. Some communal areas offer a dining or dance area, or a pool where you can relax. Houseboats With a houseboat home, you can enjoy life in coves and inlets around the perimeter of the continent or the large nearby island, or along rivers or around the large bay in the center of the continent. You cannot travel on a houseboat, but each houseboat parcel has room for you to moor your own sailboat or other watercraft. All water areas around the New Linden Homes continent are navigable and public. The houseboat models have large rooms with a high ceiling and skylighting, plus a deck area outside for you to relax or entertain on. Most houseboats are on 16 m x 64 m water parcels. Some are on square 32 m x 32 m parcels. Therefore, all have an area of 1024 sq m. All are accessible by open water. You may also walk easily from one place to another, along wooden docks that divide the parcels, or along sandbars and spits from the mainland. Houseboats are all within convenient reach of community areas and cultural venues (lighthouses, beaches, and community buildings where you may gather with friends). First-generation themes First-generation Linden Homes have limited space and land capacity. Homes in these themes are still available for purchase, but provide less land capacity and use older-style control panels: Tahoe - Rustic cabin retreats with winding roads among hills and pine forests. Elderglen - Fantasy dwellings with winding roads around hills and giant trees. Sahreta Osumai - Traditional Japanese homes nestled in picturesque areas with mossy rocks and colorful trees. Meadowbrook - California modern suburban homes with decks perfect for barbeques! First-generation Linden Homes have a land capacity of 175 on a 512 m2 parcel. Features Linden Homes contain one or more of the following features, depending on the type of home: Touch entry - Left-click the front door to enter and exit your home. Touch lighting - Click the lights to toggle them on and off. Working fireplace - Click the fireplace to toggle a fire on and off. You'll also get a control panel that enables you to manage your home accessories and to change the textures used in your home. For more information, see Using the control panel. Getting your Linden Home You can get a Linden Home when you sign up for a premium account, upgrade your basic account to premium, or if you already have a premium account and have not claimed your Linden Home yet. Prerequisites If you have a premium account and you have 512m2 available tier then you qualify for a Linden Home. For example, if you have a new premium account — you've just joined Second Life as a premium account or upgraded from a basic account — and haven't changed your land usage, then you have exactly 1024m2 of available tier. Note: You don't have to use your premium account 1024m2 land tier for a Linden Home. You can use it instead towards other mainland purchases or you can contribute it to group tier allocations. Also, if you abandon your Linden Home, you can use your 1024m2 tier to buy other mainland parcels. Checking if you have enough land tier available If you don't have any land already in Second Life, then you will always have enough land tier, because each premium account comes with 1024m2 of land tier. There are two ways to check if you have enough available tier: Inworld: From the Viewer menus, choose World > My land holdings.... Your available land tier is listed in Available for land purchases. Website: If you already own land, then you can also check if you have enough land tier on the Second Life website: Go to Your Account. On the left side of the page, click Account Summary. Find the section called Land Holdings Available square meters for purchase at your current tier is listed under Available for purchase. Signing up The Linden Home registration process offers options for theme, home type, and home name. Once you submit your registration, your selected home is immediately generated on the next available parcel within your selected theme. You cannot request a specific region or parcel location. New premium accounts Go to join.secondlife.com. Complete your registration. Upgrade to premium as prompted. Go to Linden Home registration and log in with your Second Life account and password. Existing basic accounts Go to Premium Membership registration and log in with your Second Life account. Follow the account upgrade process. Once your account is upgraded to Premium Membership, the page will redirect to Linden Home registration. Existing premium accounts Go to Linden Home registration and log in with your Second Life account and password. View the four themed communities and home options within each theme. Click on your preferred home image. Name your home. Click Next. Read the Terms and Conditions and check the box agreeing to them. Click Accept. Review your Linden Home information on the confirmation page. Click Go to your Home or use the SLurl provided. Note: Confirmation is sent to the email address you provided to register your Second Life account. Troubleshooting If you didn't receive your email confirmation, be sure to check your email application's spam folder. It's also possible there has been an error in the email process, and your Linden Home is ready and waiting for you. If your Linden Home is ready, a landmark is sent to you inworld. If there appears to be such a problem, head to the Support Portal and submit a ticket. Identify whether the email did not go through and your home is actually available, or whether there was a problem with the registration process overall. Finding your Linden Home Your welcome email will provide the location of your Linden Home. If you lost or did not receive your welcome email, then there are two ways to locate your Linden Home: On the Second Life website: Log in using your Second Life username and password. Go to your Account Dashboard. On the left, click Land Manager. Click My Mainland. Look for the name of the Linden Home that you chose when you registered. Click the link in theLocation column to teleport there. Inworld: Login to Second Life with the Second Life Viewer Choose World > My land holdings... Select the parcel that matches your chosen Linden Home name. Click Teleport. You will be teleported to your Linden Home. Abandoning or changing your Linden Home To change your choice of Linden Home type, you must abandon your current Linden Home and then register for a new one. To abandon your Linden Home: Choose World > About Land and click the General tab. Click Abandon Land. After you confirm your choice, the land is removed from your account. Now if you wish, you can register for another Linden Home. Warning: Please use this reasonably: if you abandon and choose a new Linden Home five times in 24 hours, you are temporarily blocked from choosing another. You will need to wait 24 hours before registering again. Enjoying your Linden Home What you can do You can: Decorate your home with furniture or other items from Second Life Marketplace. Your partner or friends can help you decorate as well. Linden Home parcels work just like any other parcel of land in that regard; who can rez objects on your land depends on the About Land settings. See Managing land for more information. Customize textures used in your Linden Home via the control panel. See Using the control panel. Covenant and restrictions The covenant describes how you can use Linden Home land. To view the covenant, choose World > Region / Estate, then click the Covenant tab or right-click on the ground and choose About Land then click on the COVENANT tab. You are not allowed to: Terraform Linden Home land, sell it, deed it to a group, join it with another parcel, or divide the land. Modify the structure. For example, you can not move or eliminate individual components of your Linden Home such as the fireplace or a window. Move or rotate the structure. Your Linden Home must remain as it came on its 512m2 parcel. If you want both a Linden Home and more land for your premium account, you can use your remaining tier and/or upgrade on the Land Use Fees page. Tip: Linden Home land can't be group-owned. But if your personal Resident account is eligible for Linden Home land, you can set the land to a group to collaborate with other group members. Also, you agree that your Linden Home: Is for residential use only. Business use of any kind is prohibited, including parcel rental, rental boxes, classified ads or other forms of advertising, and event listings. Will be kept presentable and in-theme. Does not include traffic tracking. Land cannot contain temporary object rezzers or individual prims beyond the maximum size allowed by the Second Life Viewer build tools. Skyboxes are allowed on the Belliseria continent above 2000 meters. Skyboxes are not allowed for first-generation Linden Homes. Etiquette Living in a community includes courtesy towards your neighbors. Here are some guidelines for etiquette in Linden Home regions: Use local chat say, rather than shout. Adhere to the maturity rating for the Linden Home region you are in. Respect your neighbors' privacy. Review general Second Life etiquette suggestions and incorporate them into your Linden Home experience. House controllers Each Linden Homes parcel is equipped with a House Controller like the one shown here. It is just outside the parcel boundary, often near a street or sidewalk or on the dock next to a houseboat parcel. Yours may look like a mailbox or some other marker appropriate to the neighborhood. A House Controller is your tool for selecting the specific model of home you want to erect on the parcel. To use it, simply left-click on it. The House Controller will only respond if you are the current owner of the parcel. It will not respond to guests, friends, or strangers. Choose a home from one of the available models by clicking one of the numbered buttons. Your new home will appear near the center of the parcel, replacing whichever home was there before. You cannot rotate the home or move it to another spot on the parcel. Linden Homes are always rezzed with the front door facing the House Controller. You may replace the model on your parcel at any time. Homes within a theme all fit in the same parcel area, so they will not interfere with vegetation, fencing, or other objects that Linden Lab has placed on land next to your parcel. However, because each model has a different floor plan, you will usually need to move furniture or other items that you have placed in a previous home so that it is arranged well in your new home. If you select the notecard option, you will receive an instructional notecard. It will explain the features of your house in greater detail than they are covered in this guide. If you select the Content Creation Pack option, you will receive a folder of items that you may use to landscape your parcel and decorate your home. House control panels As you enter a Linden Home, you will find a Control Panel just inside the front door. The control panel is your tool for customizing the appearance of your home and for controlling access. The layout of menu buttons for a Control Panel varies slightly from one theme to another, but all Linden Homes have the same basic set of functions described here. Click on the Control Panel to see the main menu of your options: When you make most changes with the Control Panel, you receive confirmation in chat. A notice appears within a few seconds to tell you that the new information has been recorded in the system. The Door button offers you a choice between allowing your doors to Stay Open when you click on them, or to AutoClose within ten seconds after they are opened. The Windows button on the main menu toggles the window covering (blinds) up or down. Using this button in the Control Panel toggles all windows in the house at once, so that they are all either up or down at the same time. If you (or a person you have granted access to) want to raise or lower a single window covering, you can do that by simply left-clicking on the window covering (Note: Some house models also offer the option to open and close individual windows. Where that option is available, it is not managed in the Control Panel. To open a window, you just left-click on it). The Access button, which is only visible to you as the parcel owner, will let you give additional people permission to use the Control Panel menus. Using its Add Name menu option, you create a whitelist and add anyone you choose. The person does not need to belong to a special group. You may remove the person’s access permission at any time by clicking this same Access button and using the Remove Name option. If you have created a whitelist, you may check to see who is on it by using the View List option. The Access menus allow you to control who has permission to use some features in your home. There are three access levels: ONLY ME is the highest level. If you click that menu button, nobody else may use the Control Panel, operate the window blinds, or open doors. LIST is the middle level. If you have created a whitelist, selecting LIST gives people on the list permission to operate window and door functions, and most functions in the Control Panel (but not the Access functions). ANYONE is the lowest level. If you click that button, anybody may open doors or operate the blinds. Only you and people on the whitelist may use the Control Panel. Please note that the Access menu does not control permission to rez objects in your home, or change its music stream. Manage those permissions by creating a group for your home, as discussed later in this guide. The Redecorate button offers options which are different in each home theme, although some features are found in all themes. The Outside button offers different color schemes for painting the siding on the home. The Wall button lets you change the color of the walls inside your home. The Floor button lets you choose among options for flooring inside the home, so you may opt for carpeting or different types of wood flooring. Submenu buttons on some themed homes include options for changing the color of the Roof, Trim, Deck, or other parts of the home that are special for that theme. Most menus in your Control Panel also contain two other buttons. The Done button closes the Control Panel menus and saves your most recent changes in the system’s memory. The Back button opens the previous dialog menu. Content creation packs As a homeowner, you may want to personalize your parcel by adding vegetation, pathways, rocks, or other decorative items. Please remember to stay within the theme of your neighborhood. For more specific details, refer to the covenant in World > About Land when you are standing in your parcel. As an aid, your Linden Home comes with a free Content Creation Pack. In it, you will find items that you may use to spruce up your home/parcel -- items such as decor items, textures, wall/fence kits and lighting may be included. Unlike the house itself, which does not add to the Land Impact on your parcel, these extra objects and anything else that you rez will add land impact, so be careful to stay within your limit. Refer to World > About Land > Objects to verify your available land impact. You may receive the Content Creation Pack by clicking on the appropriate menu option in your House Controller. Textures Texture packs with the building textures for each first-generation Linden Home theme are available at the Linden Home infohubs. Resale of textures is prohibited. Texture pack locations: Meadowbrook Infohub Tahoe Infohub Elderglen Infohub Shareta Osumai Infohub Privacy Total privacy in an open community like Linden Homes is not possible, but there are ways that you can manage access to your home and its features. As noted above, for example, you can use your home’s Control Panel to control who may enter your home and use its redecorate functions. You may also use the Options tab in World > About Land to determine who is allowed to rez objects on your parcel and whether people outside the parcel can see and hear what you are doing. You may not use selections in the Access tab of About Land to set ban lines around your parcel, but you may use the Linden Homes Security System (found in the Content Creation Pack) to eject unwanted visitors from your parcel. You may not use other security systems that have a shorter warning time or a greater detection range than the Linden Homes Security System. The security system is designed to be wall-mounted. When activated, it scans your parcel as much as 400m above and below the control unit, provides a warning to unauthorized visitors, and then ejects them from the parcel. It does not detect people in neighboring parcels. You may adjust the system’s range and the amount of warning time (minimum 15 seconds), and may tell the system to ignore members of your group or specific people that you have added to its whitelist. The system will not function if it is placed at an altitude between 100m and 2000m above sea level, but can be used in your Linden Home or in a skybox above 2000m. Instructions for setting up the system and operating it are provided on a notecard with the unit, and in shortened form, by clicking on the system’s help (?) button. Getting help As a premium account holder, you're eligible for live chat and ticket support from the Support Portal. If you need support for your Linden Home: Go to the Support Portal and choose Submit a Support Case. Select Land and Region from the first dropdown menu. Select Linden Home Issues from the second dropdown menu. Fill out the required fields; make sure to include as much relevant information as possible when describing your issue. Click Submit to submit your ticket. Requesting terraforming of adjoining land If there is an issue with the terraforming of your parcel or nearby land that you suspect is an error: Go to the Support Portal. Click Contact Support. Click Submit a Support Case form. From the dropdown menus, choose: Land and Region Linden Home Issues - Terrain or Content Fill in the rest of the required fields. Click Submit to submit your ticket.

    What is abandoned land? How to abandon land How to tell if land is abandoned What happens to abandoned land I abandoned my land by mistake! How to request purchase of abandoned land Review of land that looks abandoned In other languages: Deutsch Español Français Italiano 日本語 Português What is abandoned land? Abandoned land is a mainland parcel that has been returned to Linden Lab by the previous owner. How to abandon land Open the World menu and select About Land. The About Land window opens. In the General tab of the About Land window, click Abandon Land. Review the confirmation and click Ok. How to tell if land is abandoned Abandoned land is owned by Governor Linden and contains the term "Abandoned Land" in the parcel name. The parcel description often includes the name of the previous owner. Land that is owned by another Resident is not abandoned, even if it appears to be unused. What happens to abandoned land When a mainland parcel is abandoned, the ownership of the parcel changes to Governor Linden. There is no Linden dollar (L$) grant related to abandoned land. Once abandoned, the parcel settings are amended to reflect the abandoned status and auto-return settings are enabled after one week. Note: This program applies only to Linden-owned Mainland areas and does not include Private Regions. I abandoned my land by mistake! You should never expect to be able to reclaim abandoned land. Please use care to make sure that any abandonment action is intentional. However, if you do make a mistake, please submit a support case as soon as possible. Include the parcel location and explain that you would like to reclaim a parcel you abandoned by mistake. We can attempt to make a one-time courtesy effort to recover the land for you. How to request purchase of abandoned land To request the sale of abandoned land, submit a support case of the type Land > Parcel Issues and provide the details of your request. In many cases, we can assist by making a larger or smaller sized parcel available rather than the actual parcel that has been requested. If you require a different size parcel than what is currently available, please request the desired size (in square meters) and provide a SLurl to the parcel's location. We will attempt to assist with a direct sale to the Resident who has made the request, so please submit a ticket as soon as you are aware of the abandoned location. We attempt to give priority to those who already have land in the region, so please let us know if the request is for neighboring or additional land within the same region. We will try to assist with a direct sale of the abandoned land at a the price of L$1 per square meter. In some cases, abandoned land may not be eligible for a direct sale. In these cases we will attempt to make the land available for sale via the auction system. Here are some of the reasons that requested land may need to be offered as an auction: The location has a limited amount of abandoned land in the region. The location is neighboring protected land or waterfront. The location is in a themed area such as Bay City, Horizons, or Nautilus. The location offers bonus object use. The location is Adult rated. The location is newly abandoned and not known to be available. These are only guidelines; each request is considered on a case-by-case basis and we may not be able to assist by making an abandoned parcel available as a direct sale or auction. Review of land that looks abandoned If you find a parcel that appears to be owned by a defunct account or group, there is a possibility that we can make the parcel available for sale. However, please note that land owned by a valid account or group is not abandoned, even if it appears to be unused. Please bear in mind that many Residents have annual accounts, and it may take many months for the account status to expire if they have chosen to leave or use a different account. Land cannot be reclaimed simply due to inactivity. If you have a premium account, you can trigger an auction for abandoned land by opening a support case with the following information: The parcel's SLurl. The concern that prompted you to investigate the parcel's status.

      Cuándo denunciar una infracción Cómo denunciar una infracción Qué ocurre cuando se denuncia una infracción Retractarse de una denuncia de infracción Cómo denunciar a un residente menor de edad Infracciones en el chat de voz   En otros idiomas: Deutsch English Français Português Italiano 日本語 Türkçe Русский Cuándo denunciar una infracción Una infracción se produce cuando alguien infringe las Condiciones del Servicio o las Normas de la Comunidad. Todos los residentes aceptan respetar estas reglas cuando se suscriben a Second Life. Algunos lugares especiales, como los Puntos de información, tienen restricciones adicionales llamadas Normas de las áreas de bienvenida. Si un usuario incumple en tu presencia alguna de estas normas de una manera que puede considerarse deliberada o malintencionada, todos los usuarios que lo hayan presenciado deben presentar una denuncia de infracción. Si se han producido varios incidentes, denuncia varias infracciones. Denuncia cualquier infracción que presencies, no solo las que te afecten personalmente. No todos los residentes conocen el sistema de Filing an abuse reportdenuncia de infracciones ni se acuerdan de utilizarlo, de manera que, por favor ayuda a tus compañeros residentes. Las denuncias de varias personas acentúan la gravedad de un suceso. Más sugerencias: Si un script te empuja o te tira, pulsa el botón derecho en un objeto y selecciona Sentarme aquí. Así evitarás que te desplace. En los terrenos donde están habilitados los combates o los daños, disparar a alguien no es una infracción. En la barra de menús encontrarás un corazón rojo que indica tu salud. Si puedes verlo, es porque en esa zona están permitidos los combates y las armas de fuego. Tu avatar no puede morir de manera permanente: aunque pierdas toda la salud, lo único que ocurrirá es que te teleportarás a tu Base. El uso de armas en terrenos donde el combate no está permitido generalmente supone una infracción, salvo que el propietario del terreno lo haya permitido expresamente, por ejemplo, para un juego de rol. Si una amistad ha terminado, puedes ignorar a la persona y borrarla de tu lista de amigos. Así también le quitarás cualquier permiso que le hayas concedido, como la posibilidad de rastrearte en el mapa. Cómo denunciar una infracción Para denunciar una infracción, puedes hacer cualquiera de los siguientes: Elige Ayuda > Denunciar una infracción en los menús de la parte superior de la ventana del visor. Para denunciar directamente a otro residente, pulsa con el botón derecho en su avatar y elige Denunciar  Para denunciar directamente a un objeto, pulsa con el botón derecho en el objeto y elige Gestionar > Denunciar la infracción. Se abre la ventana DENUNCIA DE INFRACCIÓN, que muestra una captura de la pantalla actual, así como la información de identificación pertinente si has seleccionado un avatar o un objeto. Si la captura de pantalla ayuda a aclarar el problema, selecciona la casilla Usar esta captura de pantalla. Las capturas de pantalla pueden proporcionar una prueba visual muy útil; inclúyelas siempre que sea oportuno. Si denuncias a un avatar o un objeto, pulsa el botón y se rellenará automáticamente la información pertinente. Pulsa Elegir la categoría y selecciona una categoría. Si no encuentras una categoría adecuada para el suceso concreto que deseas denunciar, selecciona Elegir la categoría > Otra y escribe una explicación en el campo Detalle. El campo Localización de la infracción se rellena automáticamente con tu ubicación actual. Cámbialo si deseas especificar otro lugar. En el campo Resumen, escribe un resumen conciso en una línea, como si fuera el asunto de un correo electrónico. Escribe un comentario breve, pero claro. Usa el campo Detalles para proporcionarnos tanta información pertinente como sea posible, con objeto de ayudarnos a aclarar el suceso. Pulsa en Denunciar la infracción para presentar la denuncia. Sugerencia: Si no conoces el nombre del infractor, elige "Governor Linden" como marcador de posición y explica los detalles de la denuncia. Qué ocurre cuando se denuncia una infracción Recibirás una respuesta automática por correo electrónico. Si necesitas añadir más información después de denunciar la infracción, presenta una denuncia nueva. Intentamos resolver las denuncias con la mayor brevedad posible, pero el tiempo de respuesta depende sobre todo de la cantidad de denuncias que se hayan acumulado. Por razones de privacidad, no podemos comunicarte los detalles de la investigación de una denuncia por infracción. En cuanto presentes la denuncia, nosotros nos ocuparemos del caso. Muchas veces, lo único que hace falta para cortar un problema es una advertencia oficial. Normalmente, cuando un residente vulnera nuestras Condiciones de servicio y/o Normas de la comunidad, le damos varias oportunidades para cambiar de conducta antes de penalizarle. En todos los casos, se consulta el expediente disciplinario del residente para que las medidas que tomamos sean proporcionadas. Una infracción grave puede causar la suspensión de la cuenta o una expulsión permanente. La duración de la suspensión depende del carácter de la infracción, las infracciones anteriores y a cuántas personas afecta. Sugerencia: Si la infracción del residente es reiterada, denuncia cada incidente. El procedimiento disciplinario solo puede ponerse en marcha cuando se nos informa de una conducta infractora permanente. Retractarse de una denuncia de infracción Si denuncias una infracción y, posteriormente, te das cuenta de que has cometido un error, puedes presentar una nueva denuncia explicando que no deseas que se investigue la anterior. Facilítanos toda la información que consideres útil. Cómo denunciar a un residente menor de edad Las Condiciones del servicio de Second Life disponen que todos los residentes deben tener por lo menos 16 años de edad, a excepción de los residentes de 13 a 15 años, que solo pueden visitar el estado de una institución patrocinadora. Si deseas más información, consulta Adolescentes en Second Life. Si encuentras a un menor de 16 años fuera del estado de una institución patrocinadora, debes hacer lo siguiente: Asegúrate de que la persona haya admitido que es menor de edad con sus propias palabras en un chat del mundo virtual (por ejemplo, diciendo "tengo 14 años"). No podemos aceptar habladurías, rumores ni confesiones realizadas en programas de mensajería instantánea externos ni en lugares fuera de Second Life. En nuestro mundo virtual, usa Ayuda > Denunciar la infracción para abrir la herramienta de denuncia de infracciones. Pulsa en Elegir la categoría y selecciona la categoría Edad. Escribe la información que consideres necesaria, de la forma más concreta posible. Si has escuchado recientemente que el usuario es menor de edad en un chat, copia y pega el fragmento en el campo Detalle. Si el suceso ocurrió hace tiempo, y no tienes una grabación del chat, repite todo lo que puedas de la conversación, para que nosotros sepamos qué debemos buscar. Pulsa el botón Denunciar la infracción y nuestro equipo de infracciones investigará el hecho y tomará las medidas oportunas. Muchas gracias por tu colaboración. Cuando una denuncia es válida, Linden Lab pone la cuenta afectada en estado de retención administrativa y solicita una verificación de la edad del titular por correo electrónico. Para restaurar la cuenta, debes proporcionar una copia legible de cualquier documento identificativo oficial (carné de identidad, permiso de conducir, pasaporte, cartilla militar, certificado de nacimiento) en el que se especifiquen claramente tanto el nombre como la fecha de nacimiento del titular. Esta es la única forma de identificación admitida para confirmar la edad. Puedes enviar tu documentación de identidad por correo electrónico, por fax o por correo postal. El proceso de verificación de la edad normalmente se resuelve en el plazo de una semana. Hacemos todo lo que podemos para mantener activas las cuentas de Second Life. Infracciones en el chat de voz Si una persona te acosa en una conversación de voz, la mejor solución es ignorarla. Puedes denunciar una infracción, aunque en estos casos es difícil proporcionar pruebas concretas, ya que no hay una grabación de MI o de chat. Por motivos de sentido común, no podemos aceptar grabaciones de chat de voz realizadas con otros programas o colocando una grabadora junto a los altavoces. Puedes silenciar el chat de voz de dos maneras en el mundo virtual: Pulsa con el botón derecho en el avatar y elige Ignorar. Pulsa el botón Gente, en la parte inferior del Visor, y se abrirá la ventana GENTE. Abre la pestaña CERCANA, selecciona el avatar y elige Ignorar/No ignorar. Aparecerá un icono rojo pequeño junto a su nombre. Nota: Si escribes mensajes de MI, pagas dólares Linden u ofreces artículos del inventario a una persona que has ignorado, se desbloqueará automáticamente. Puedes consultar más información en Ignorar.
