  1. The 4th Annual Best Practices in Education (VWBPE 2011) conference is just around the corner! It will take place in Second Life on March 17-19, 2011. Attendance and presentations grows each year and the VWBPE has become widely regarded as one of the most important inworld education events of the year and a great opportunity for you, as an educator, to share knowledge and experiences with your colleagues from around the globe.

  2. Following up on our previous announcement, today we are transferring accounts and land held by 16- and 17-year-olds in Teen Second Life to Second Life's Main Grid. 13-15 year old users not affiliated with an organization will not be transferring, but we are excited to see you inworld when the time comes! We are beginning now and it will take a few hours to complete. Once it is done, Teen Second Life will be officially closed. If you have any questions, then check out the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Second Life wiki which provides additional details about the transition. I would
  3. Hi Boaz, apologies for missing this earlier. For the purpose that you state, age-verification and identity-verification serve the same purpose. If you check that box, then you will be saying that only accounts that have registered as 18 or older, and have passed through the web identity verification system will be allowed.
  4. Hi Calade, per the blog post, all land on the teen grid will be transferred.
  5. Hi Cherry, privacy and safety/security is important to the teen residents as well as adults. We did not ignore what you have raised; we decided to weigh on the side of giving equal privacy rights to both our teen and adult users.
  6. Hi Arwyn, I'm sorry, but I just accidentally deleted your first post! I meant to hit reply but hit the wrong button. I'm going to try and get it restored. But you're right, it has been a few weeks since I've spoken to the teens, and I will be sure to again soon!
  7. When we announced that we would be closing Teen Second Life and bringing our under-18 Residents to the Main Grid, we also made clear our intention not to compromise the experience that teens have access to. Today, I’m happy share our plan to create rich and enjoyable Second Life experiences for teens, while keeping in mind their security and safety when joining the Main Grid. A Rich and Secure Experience for Teens Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and rewarding experience to all Second Life Residents, no matter their age. Accordingly, we are putting safeguards in place on the Main Grid s
  8. Hi Ayesha, We are taking issues related to safety and security (for both the 16 and 17 year olds, as well as the adults) around this move very seriously. As I stated in a couple previous posts, many of the issues raised by Residents have been/are being taken into account by us and I will be letting everyone know specifics on this matter. I appreciated everyone's patience until we release more detail - specific timing of this release is still TBD.
  9. It has been several weeks since we announced that Teen Second Life, our Second Life grid for 13- to 17-year-olds, will be closing at the end of this year, and that we would be admitting 16- and 17-year-olds to the main grid. Today, we are excited to tell you that we will be able to continue serving all of the educational and not-for-profit communities of the Teen Grid, including those that serve 13- to 15-year-olds, without an interruption in service.
