Teen Second Life Shutting Down Forever December 31st

Teen Second Life Shutting Down Ending

We wrote recently about the 12 Major Changes Coming to Second Life many of which were announced at SLCC 2010.

One of the most earth shattering yet glossed over changes will be that Teen Second Life will be discontinued. Teens age 16 and above will be allowed into the Main Grid. The teen grid will be shut down on December 31, 2010.

This is a huge change for Second Life and despite restricting adult content to Zindra and adding maturity ratings and restrictions it can’t ease concerns about age play in Second Life.

Really it comes down to a cost cutting measure as Linden Lab is showing severe signs of financial strain. But will this be another terrible mistake? Or a change to strengthen the community?

Second Life Opens Message of Day to Advertisers

Second Life Advertising Message of the Day

Linden Lab has announced that Second Life advertisers will now be able to advertise in the Message of the Day area. This message appears below the progress bar for all users when logging in with the Second Life client.
