Re: age verification

If you want acces to Adult lands an content IS NOT necessary be Age Verfied, it's enoug be Account Verified. See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:What_are_the_different_types_of_Account_Verification%3F That document explain the differences. Extract:
In order to access Adult Content in Second Life, your account needs to be verified.
You may have heard the terms "Account Verification" and "Age Verification". While related, they are in fact different! Here's what you must know:
Account Verification is an umbrella term which contains different ways of being Account-Verified.
Having "Payment Info on File" means you're "Account-Verified" , but not necessarily "Age-Verified". You can be neither, either, or both. For example, if you purchase goods from Xstreet with a credit card, you have Payment Info on File status, and are "Account-Verified". But, you're not Age-Verified unless you explicitly go through the Age Verification process.
Furthermore, even if you have both Payment Info on File and are Age-Verified, to access a Region, your Preferred Maturity must be the same or greater than that Region. For example, to access an Adult-rated Region, you need to set your Preferred Maturity rating to PG, Mature and Adult. Similarly, to access a Mature-rated Region, you need to set your Preferred Maturity to PG and Mature or PG, Mature and Adult.
But if really you need be Age Verified, and you have problems doing ir automaticallu, you shoul use the Manual age verification. See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Age_Verification_FAQ#What_happens_if_I_experience_problems_when_I_try_to_verify_my_identity.3F
What happens if I experience problems when I try to verify my identity?
The new age verification feature is in beta. Please be patient as we continue to improve the feature. We are committed to making sure the process is as smooth and user-friendly as possible; however, we understand that this represents a change for Residents. We have also tested the system extensively with our systems provider, Aristotle-Integrity, which has delivered this type of technology to other companies. If you continue to have problems verifying your identity, please go to the Second Life Support Portal and submit a ticket (select Special Questions - Basic account or Guest Login from the Ticket Type dropdown, select Account Issues from the next dropdown, and choose Manual Age Verification from the next).
Please attach an electronic (scanned) copy of one of a Government issued identification that has your name and date of birth clearly displayed. This identification could be one of the following:
State or National ID
To attach a file to your ticket:
Log into the Second Life Support Portal and click the My Support History tab.
Click the Ticket # of the age verification ticket you submitted.
Click the Comment button.
Click the Attach a file link.
Browse for the file on your computer and click Open.
To attach another file, click the Attach another file link.
Click the Submit button.
The files you specified will be uploaded and attached to the ticket.
Please expect manual verification to take 5-7 working days.
