What Do We Do?

Our Job

The job of the Safety Department is to decide and practise safety rules for use of the Schome community forum, the wiki and Schome Park. Maintain and enforce these rules, lend help where it is needed, try to resolve arguments in the time needed to make healthy decisions and gather information on community views on safety within the Schome Park project. The information displayed here may be changed at any given moment by a member and department officer of the Schome Park Safety department.

Qoute from Fox Phlox: "many SParkers are members of social networking sites such as MySpace and Bebo and there you're unlikely to have a moderator breathing round your neck if you include personal information. However, remember that if you or members of your network flag up anywhere that you're part of the schome community it becomes fairly straightforward for people to link information contained about you in your postings on these forums with information you have put up elsewhere."

How do I navigate around a poster so I can read it? Question: I went to Space Station Alpha and there are lots of 'posters' with a lot of text on them, I found them really difficult to read... any ideas on how to navigate round them? Can you load them into a web browser or something? is there an inline tool? (Mark Gaved)


Is free stuff safe? Question: There are loads of free stuff in Schome Park, are they safe to buy and use?

Answer: Yes, all the things you find in the Scho-op store and the SPTC are free and 100% safe

How do I wear clothes? Question: I have seen people wearing custom clothes, how do I wear them, can I create clothes?

Answer: You can wear clothes by first obtaining them from the Scho-op or your inventory library, opening up your inventory, right clicking on the clothes you want and selecting 'wear'. You can create clothes in the appearance menu by right clicking on your avatar and selecting appearance. You can also upload textures for clothes by going to file > upload, this costs $L10.

Maximum number of prims?

What's the maximum number of prims you can use to build something with? I am guessing the more prims the slower the world works, but what happens if you push it up to a really high number?
