Age Verification

Recently Furvana, a furry dance club, has had problems with under age persons going online in their parents accounts or sign on to SL when they should be on the teen grid.

Age verification means that Linden Labs knows for sure how old you are and that you are of legal age, over 18, to be on the main grid.

The above pic shows a table with three boxes that contained note cards that run you through the age verification process. I will post those note cards below so that you can see that process.


Reminder - Age Verification starts Feb 1
Sat Jan 31 19:21:57 2009

If you have not age Verified, you will not be able to get into Furvana. This will NOT affect Wolfmont SIM or the Moonlit Paw Shopping area.

If you are unsure about your status, check your account on the SecondLife Web site and choose the Age Verification link. The process takes less than 5 mins. The data does NOT go through Linden Labs - it is done by a 3rd party so your info is safe. If you need more info, there is an Info Desk right outside of the club, Click the cubes for notecards.

To protect us AND you!

It comes down to this - We offer Adult Content, including content that can be considered sexual in nature. Laws are still being tested all over the world on what is and what is not adult material and what is and is not legal. We have to adhere to US Laws - specificly the laws of California where Linden Labs is based. Because of this, we can not allow anyone under the age of 18 to view or participate in any activity of a sexual or suggestive nature.

I've heard lots of arguments for and against the verification system. The truth is this - no system is 100% perfect. There will be faults in any system, but this is the best we have right now.

This is to protect YOU and US.

Thank you for your help and understanding!
