  1. I only close threads when I have a joke to post. And I don't have a joke for this one. Unless... What if THIS is the joke? Whaaaaa-
  2. Reminder (since it's been a while!):
  3. This thread has been quarantined. I wash my hands of distributing warnings to anyone, since I understand this topic can get people all fired up, but I did go ahead and sanitize the thread anyway. Fortunately, the thread never truly went viral, so there were only 8 pages. For real, though, stay safe everyone, wash your hands, and be cool to each other. This may be a non-issue for some, but it's going to be a huge deal for others. Please make sure everyone's respecting that.
  4. We got reports of a dihydrogen monoxide leak, so we're locking the thread. A new-ish hazmat team has gone through and cleaned it up, and, though they're a bit wet behind the ears, it should be safe to go about your normal forum activity. If additional leaks or violations are discovered, please make sure to summon our crack team of dihydrogen monoxide specialists using the appropriate abuse reporting tool (Report Abuse in-world, Report Post in the community, Flag on the Marketplace). We're ready to help you!
  5. I can't speak to the rest of this forum topic, but "Information-only" listings are not permitted. Selling something for 0L$ that essentially gives you an advertisement for the real item would result in the item being delisted. That, and a bunch of angry buyers. Buyers do not like it when they have to read into the item description to understand what they're getting as-is. Imagine how much worse it will be if they're not even getting the item.
  6. Remember when this thread was about land? Good times. Thread's locked, y'all. Let's try to stay on topic next time!
  7. Gentle reminder that discussion of actual moderation action—e.g this thread was removed, I was banned, etc.—is not permitted. If, at any time, you believe you've been unfairly or inappropriately actioned, you're invited to create a support ticket at https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/ to submit an Abuse Appeal. Side note: the Abuse Appeal category is not for reporting abuse. There's an in-world tool, mysteriously named Report Abuse, just for such a purpose. It's the best and only way to get the attention of the Governance Team to review in-world abuse claims. For those premium members who like to report abuse to Live Chat, that's the tool they're using to let the Governance Team know about the abuse. You can skip a step and go straight to the source if you use Report Abuse. So, to recap: This thread is to discuss what you can do on the forums Abuse Appeals go to Support under the Abuse Appeal category Reports of Abuse go to Governance using the in-world Report Abuse tool Bob's your uncle FIIIIIIIIVE GOOOOOOLD RIIIIIINGS
  8. I can, but in the interest of communicating the spirit of the law and not the letter, I'm not going to. The reason for this is that the more specific I get in an example, the more it encourages someone to get closer to the line, e.g. "Jagix said that Monday is a bad day for racist profanity, but he never said anything about regular profanity on a Wednesday, so I'm in the clear! What do you mean I got actioned!? That's not what Jagix said!" Also, fun fact: actioned is the blanket term for warnings, suspensions, and terminations, etc, as opposed to sanctioned. I suppose I could use sanctioned, but... nah. I'd be missing two letters if I were trying to spell sanctioned instead of actioned!

  9. It depends on the offense. Someone who willfully, blatantly, and repeatedly violates the Community Standards, particularly in an egregious way, is likely to be actioned both on the Forums and in-world. You're not likely to get an in-world suspension, however, for a minor offense. There's no joke in this post, and, for that, I am ashamed. Oh, wait, is this the joke part? Whaaaaaa-
  10. For those playing the home game, Pussycat Catnap has some good advice:
  11. Everyone is obligated to follow the Terms & Conditions (which includes the Community Standards, among other policies). You're not, per se, obligated to report people who aren't, but it'd be sort of like going, "Man, there's a lot of crime here! Someone should call the police, but not me, because I'm not a snitch!" We're here to help and make those determinations. Follow the rules, report people who you think aren't doing that, and we'll make that determination. There's no penalty for being wrong on either end; mass reporting to get someone suspended isn't a thing, and you're not going to get in trouble for being wrong about your report, unless it's really clear that you're submitting false reports to purposefully clog up the reporting systems.
  12. Hey, remember that time that we all read the Community Participation Guidelines, especially the part below, and then we continued posting pictures of our avatars? Good times.
  13. I see this has gone back down into the weeds of interpersonal disputes, so it's musical thread lock time. Fortunately, the thesis of this thread has given me inspiration. Time to lock this thread now The discussion's done Don't be sad it's ending There will be more fun I know at times the topic's tense And you don't know just what to do Fellas, I have some locking to do Tranquil in the forums That's the goal, the end Following the Standards Keeps your comments in Sometimes unkind words have made us fought And a thread is just kinda doomed That's why I have some locking to dooooooooooooo 'Cause this thread Ran its course like a river 'Cause this thread Stirred up fights like a great typhoon 'Cause this thread Has been flaring up like a fire Maybe we bit off a bit more than we could cheeeeeeeeeew
  14. Here is clarification on Linden Lab's Policy Regarding Age-Play as linked in the Terms and Conditions. But not everyone speaks legalese or wants to think too hard about what the wiki states, so I also memified it for you Hey hey hey, where did Geordi make his ban hammer? In La Forge!
  15. While Thanksgiving may not be celebrated yesterday by countries other than the US, it appears that the time honored tradition of gathering with your family and going off on a long, uncomfortable tangent that makes everyone angry and leaves important people feeling dehumanized holds strong, even if it's just another Thursday. At a normal Thanksgiving, there's not much you can do to erase all the terrible fights. But here? There's me! Like a good set of tupperware, I've scooped up the leftovers, and now we're all on topic again. Let's keep it that way.
  16. I'm going to go ahead and lock this, as it's getting a little out of hand. For more information on what you can do when you see violations of the rules, see my previous replies in this thread.
  17. The best option if you're unsure about a listing is to flag it on the Marketplace for review by the Marketplace team. If you need a second opinion, create a Support ticket under the Marketplace category, mention that you already flagged it, and you'd like someone to take a second look. I will reiterate that real-life images of sexual activity between humans and animals is a severe violation of the Terms and Conditions and Community Standards.
  18. The best place to go for the rules is the Second Life Terms and Conditions. Section 7 links to clarification on additional policies. I think the only thing missing from there is the Bot Policy.
  19. The nudity comment pertains specifically to child avatars. Real means real. Real images of sexual contact with animals and humans are not permitted under any circumstances.
  20. Some housekeeping in no particular order: Naming and shaming isn't permitted on the forums. Any comments in this thread that engaged in that have been hidden Inappropriate content for the Marketplace should be flagged under Spam or Disallowed Listing Practices > Harmful or Disruptive Content for review by our Marketplace team , who will review it and take action if necessary. We review those flags pretty frequently. If you notice something sticking around that you feel pretty strongly about for one reason or another that wasn't removed after flagging, go ahead and submit a Support ticket to the Marketplace team to ask for a second opinion. Just make sure you're using the Flag option first, since contacting Support is going to take longer for the Marketplace team to see and review it. Adult diaper play is allowed. This is where an adult avatar wears a diaper. You do you boo boo Child sexual activity is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate termination of all Second Life accounts past, present, and future. The same applies to real-life depictions of sexual activity between humans and animals. The rules on this are broad, so trying to walk right up to that line is a bad idea. For that, it's one strike, and you're out. If you spot anything like this in-world, an Abuse Report is the appropriate place to let our Governance team know about the issue. If you have additional information that doesn't fit in an Abuse Report, you can submit a Support case to add supplementary information. The Support team can't assist you directly with Abuse issues, but they can make sure the Governance team is aware of the additional information. Nudity isn't disallowed per se, but it must occur in a non-sexual context. We're serious about privacy, so we don't disclose account actions to anyone other than the person who the action was taken against. That can sometimes give the false impression that nothing is being done, but we are, indeed, reviewing flags and investigating reports. I don't really have a good joke for this post, since so much of this is serious business
  21. There can be miiiiiiraaaacles When you beeeeliiiiiiiieve
  22. Despite treatment and awareness being better than ever, many mental health issues are seriously misrepresented, misunderstood, and mistreated. Without proper, individualized care, there is no one here who will be able to give all the answers. Many have given great advice and excellent resources, and I recommend perusing this thread for more information. In any case, I do want to say that it's great to see that so many of you are inspired and passionate about helping out a fellow misfit. Even when the advice isn't the best, the intentions are good, and the purpose is clear—to give a fellow resident a way to cope—and that's what community is all about. The fact of the matter is that, in one way or another, we're all misfits. That's sort of the beauty of Second Life. It's a world where you can be anything. If there's a community for people like you, you can join it. And if there isn't, you can create it. We're incredibly passionate about that behind the scenes. So yes, while it's time for this thread to end, I am glad to see the community supporting one another. And, because none of my thread locks are ever too serious, you can have this: Forum Serenity Prayer Mods, grant me the serenity* to use the ignore button The courage not to take the bait And the wisdom to know when to let a thread die *serenity is knowing you can't stop the signal, but you can stop the noise coming out of the trolls
  23. I'm going through and cleaning up some of this thread, but, in the meantime, I'm going to remind everyone not only to follow the Community Standards here, but to also treat mental health and mental illness with the delicacy the topic merits.
  24. Oh man, if you don't know professional wrestling, you're gonna have a bad time with this one. It's the New Day. Look 'em up. You're welcome.
