Group Chat - Group Notice Sent Out

Post by Cierra Theriac »

I hate to have to even send this out... but group chat has turned into a free for all. Inappropriate language, behavior, discussions, and comments are being made, with the caveat "that's my opinion" as if that should make it okay. It's isn't. Group chat should be clean, fun and friendly. If what you have to say doesn't fit this criteria, take it to private chat.

Ignorance is not an excuse.

If intolerant behavior occurs, you will be given one warning, and if it continues, your group chat privileges will be revoked. If it is seriously offensive, inappropriate or turns into harassment, you may be subject to having your membership revoked.

If as a group we can not abide by these guidelines, group chat moderators will temporarily close group chat.

SImple rules - Be nice, or get off chat. If you have an issue, please come to a member of the Board of Directors, or address it privately..

Yes we all have a right to our opinion, and the right to disagree. We do not have the right to be abusive... and it will not be tolerated in group chat, official event local chat or on the forums.


Unsportsmanlike conduct (includes but is not limited to rude gestures and foul language directed at another competitor, official, judge, or spectator). Surfers should be fully aware that the definition of unsportsmanlike conduct is broad and they must conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner

((We generalize this to events, but all pertains to anything SLSA related.))

*** Community Standards of Second Life ***

All Second Life Community Standards apply to all areas of Second Life, the Second Life Forums, and the Second Life Website.

Combating intolerance is a cornerstone of Second Life’s Community Standards. Actions that marginalize, belittle, or defame individuals or groups inhibit the satisfying exchange of ideas and diminish the Second Life community as whole. The use of derogatory or demeaning language or images in reference to another Resident’s race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation is never allowed in Second Life.

Given the myriad capabilities of Second Life, harassment can take many forms. Communicating or behaving in a manner which is offensively coarse, intimidating or threatening, constitutes unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, or is otherwise likely to cause annoyance or alarm is Harassment.

Most areas in Second Life are identified as Safe. Assault in Second Life means: shooting, pushing, or shoving another Resident in a Safe Area (see Global Standards below); creating or using scripted objects which singularly or persistently target another Resident in a manner which prevents their enjoyment of Second Life.

Residents are entitled to a reasonable level of privacy with regard to their Second Life experience. Sharing personal information about a fellow Resident –including gender, religion, age, marital status, race, sexual preference, and real-world location beyond what is provided by the Resident in the First Life page of their Resident profile is a violation of that Resident’s privacy. Remotely monitoring conversations, posting conversation logs, or sharing conversation logs without consent are all prohibited in Second Life and on the Second Life Forums.

Second Life is an adult community, but Mature material is not necessarily appropriate in all areas (see Global Standards below). Content, communication, or behavior which involves intense language or expletives, nudity or sexual content, the depiction of sex or violence, or anything else broadly offensive must be contained within private land in areas rated Mature (M). Names of Residents, objects, places and groups are broadly viewable in Second Life directories and on the Second Life website, and must adhere to PG guidelines.

Disturbing the Peace
Every Resident has a right to live their Second Life. Disrupting scheduled events, repeated transmission of undesired advertising content, the use of repetitive sounds, following or self-spawning items, or other objects that intentionally slow server performance or inhibit another Resident’s ability to enjoy Second Life are examples of Disturbing the Peace.
