Second Life To Introduce Adult Content Filters
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments
Linden Lab recently announced that upcoming additions to Second Life will give players the chance to filter adult content. The three tiered system will separate the game's content into Adult, Mature, and PG regions. Adult oriented content will be moved to a new continent within the game world.
Linden Lab defines the Adult rating as regions that host conduct or display content that is sexually explicit or intensely violent -- depicting, for example, death, torture, dismemberment or other severe bodily harm -- or involves illicit drug use, according to a tentative policy document on its Web site.Read more about the changes at the Macworld page listed below.
Macworld: Second Life Adult Ratings
The company's definition of Mature content can, for example, include dance clubs that feature "burlesque" acts, according to the Linden Lab Web site.
To back up the ratings Linden Lab will also implement a new account verification system. Users that want to access Adult regions and search results will have to authenticate their accounts by having payment information on file or by using Linden Lab's age verification system.
