Schome Park Acceptable Use Policy

Adapted from Linden Lab's Teen Second Life 'Commandments'

1. Respect Everyone on the Island

Schome Park is a great place to exchange ideas and debate issues, but you should not do so in a mean or belittling way. You should never use derogatory or demeaning language, images, or actions against another Resident because of their race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, religion, sexual preference, or disability.

2. Stay Anonymous

We want people on Schome Park to enjoy a safe online environment. Enjoying a safe Second Life means you should never reveal anything about your First Life that could allow someone to locate you offline. Things you should never tell anyone while you’re in Teen Second Life, and that you shouldn’t reveal in the schome wiki or forum including your real full name, your parents’ names, your home address, your school name or location, your phone/mobile numbers, email, MSN name or anything that shows what you look like in real life such as a photo, video or webcam link.

3. Keep Your Password to Yourself

It’s important to keep your password a secret, even from your very best friends and your siblings (sharing it with your parents is okay). If you give your password to someone they will have access to all of your account information and your inventory items – and you’ll be held responsible for anything they do while using your account.

4. Respect Privacy

People on Schome Park are entitled to certain degree of privacy. Sharing personal information about others – including their real-world location – is a violation of their privacy. Remotely monitoring conversations, posting conversation logs, or sharing conversation logs without consent are all prohibited. Whenever staff intend to log your conversations they will make that clear and will only do so when everyone present has agreed.

5. Keep It Clean

All content, communication, and behavior in Teen Second Life should follow "PG" guidelines. This means no strong vulgar language or expletives, no nudity or sexual content, and no depictions of sex or strong violence. This rule applies to your texture uploads, places, groups, events and wiki and forum posts as well.

6. Don’t Harass

Harassment is not allowed on Schome Park. Harassment can take many forms, but generally what we mean by this is that you should never communicate or behave in an offensive, intimidating, or threatening way toward anyone else there.

7. Don’t Assault

You should never create or use scripted objects which single out or target another avatar in a way that takes the fun out of their Second Life.

8. Don’t Disturb the Peace

Disrupting scheduled events, repeated spamming of undesired advertising content, playing sounds over and over, creating following or self-spawning items, or other objects that intentionally slow server performance or inhibit other people’s ability to enjoy Schome Park are examples of Disturbing the Peace.

Here’s What Will Happen If You Break the Rules

Generally, violations of the Schome Community Standards will first result in a Warning. If you continue to break the rules you will receive an Account Strike and a Suspension, which means you’ll be temporarily removed from Schome Park. We’ll let you know when you have received an Account Strike by sending you an email. After three Account Strikes your access to Schome Park will be removed permanently. If you use Teen Second Life to participate in anything illegal you will be removed from the island immediately.

Reporting Abuse

Residents should report violations of our Community Standards by emailing
Every Abuse Report is individually investigated, and the identity of the reporter is kept strictly confidential. If you need immediate assistance, ask any of the staff on Schome Park or hit the Help button in the centre of the Scho-op.
