  1. Really?! I'm always surprised when I hear the idea that teens spend a lot of money in SL. A huge reason the teen grid failed was because there was NOT enough money invested!
  2. It's been several months since the grid merge. I'm curious to know, how drastically has your Second Life experience changed? If there have been any changes, please let me know. Also let me know if you're an adult or a teen, of course... I think there's probably a vast difference of change between the two demographics.
  3. Oh dear, I think this is a little out of control. I don't mean to be condescending or "holier than thou". I know very well I'm just a kid and you guys have much more life experience than I do. I suppose I feel obliged, however, to partake in a discussion that is basically centralized on teens. I feel like there should be some voice other than simply the deluge of hostility towards teens and the teen grid that is displayed here. I fully awknowledge the legal issues. There are tons of loopholes in this proposal. In fact, I never thought there would be a merge--I was sure LL would just slaughter
  4. WHOA whoa whoa -- I was referring to the fact that when I turn 16 and join the other 16+ on PG sims, I'll try to set up my business again--What did you think I was inferring?!
  5. Oh, that's right. I forgot adults know much better than teens about teen behavior. In the end this is a compromise that makes neither side happy. I'll hang around on an educated sim for a few months and then I'll try to expand on MG. Good luck protecting your grid from the pedestal your age completely justifies. All that I'm hearing is that I should be quiet because my opinions don't matter... no news to me. Since nobody else is making any points that actually have anything to do with the merge or--better yet--the actual topic of this blog post, I'll hit the hay!
  6. But why do I have to say all of those things, and make it look like I'm flaunting what I do on TSL, when as an actual resident of the grid, it should be a given that I am more familiar with the TG?
  7. I spend most of it creating, yes. Things have slowed down socially on the grid. I'm also an estate manager for a couple central sims, so I have a very good idea of how things go, especially since those are the only teen-owned sims and are the centerpiece of commerce on the grid. My close friend and co-manager owns a very prominent hangout, so I am also well versed with the social aspect. Also, when I started SL, I was into roleplaying. Even if my focal point is creating, as it is, that doesn't mean I can't explore and socialize and get to know my grid. How many MG content creators shut themsel
  8. I am saying there are things you do not know about teen grid because you do not immerse yourself in the world. That is logical. When you say I don't know how the main grid works, I agree, because I do not play there. I said that adults have more life experience and more MG experience than me. That doesn't mean you know more about TG. In fact, the views expressed here regarding the TG have been extremely biased themselves. Do you know how many commerce sims there are on the teen grid, how big the map is, the main businesses, do you kno the way an average player looks, what kind of events happ
  9. Even if you were an educator, that would give you a very narrow window through which to view TSL. And watching over someone's shoulder is completely different from actually being immersed in the world. I've watched over my mom's shoulder plenty of times, but that doesn't give me a serious understanding of the grid. Once again, you're missing my point: The things I am arguing are in regards to how little people know about my grid. Also, simply because you have more life experience than me doesn't mean I have to "hush and listen" without any sort of representation of my own beliefs.
  10. No dude, I don't know better than you. I probably know how the TG works better than you, actually, since I've spent almost 3 years here, but I never claim to know more about how MG works. Of course TG is unimportant. It's super tiny. My items are, compared to the greats on your grid, quite shabby. My attempts to combat copybotting have little impact because the rest of the grid is mainly apathetic and adults don't really take me seriously. I don't expect to be welcomed to the grid. The only reason I wanted to post on this thread was to dispel false accusations about the TG. Adults know very l
  11. I'm not saying it's not a valid point, chill there. It is totally a valid point. That's why it's important to start trying to work on it now.
  12. Oh, so what you're saying is you're grabbing any reason no matter how little you care about the issues you're bringing up in order to justify your fears. Okay, that's understandable. Flickr isn't really a social networking site, but since you were bringing up something that I have been trying to combat for months and months, I thought I'd give the opportunity for people who do want to help--BEFORE the grids merge--to do so. I get how false accusations are unpleasant but if some pointed fingers are really that detrimental to the grid then there are some serious flaws that should be examined
  13. Are you serious? You're accusing me of "promoting my social network page" because I posted a link to stolen content I want to help get off the grid? I don't necessarily want to police content either, but I do it because it feels terrible to be stolen from and because my grid is a horrible mess. So much for wanting to help? Sorry you have better things to do than to try to make your world better and more fair.
  14. I'll have nowhere to go? I was thinking of jumping on the Global Kids boat.
  15. Yeah, I'm actually very serious about content theft. It's going to be hard, but proposing an inventory wipe is beyond the bounds of logic and into simply cruelly unfair. Legit content creators don't deserve to have everything taken away just because some people passed around botted hair. When all the stuff ends up on one grid, however, it will be that much easier to DMCA it and get it OFF. I've been trying to ID it and notify creators via flickr, email, and transferred friends, but there's only so much I can do from the TG -- if adults would be willing to actually step up and help rather than
