Small size prohibited on Dusty Sands …

Updated as a result of dusty sands sim minimum size rule

After noticing that many people contested this rule which if I summarize says “You are small so you are a child”, seems that the one probably at the origin of this rule wants to do something without interest, then that it is just to increase the minimum size and this gradually.

On the one hand, why continue to want to impose a size? Again, he didn’t have to understand what LL was saying in his own rules, it was not the size of the avatar that defined a child but his way of playing his role and his appearance other than just the size. As one person said .. so if I’m dressed in diaper panties, a bottle in my mouth and I make baby cries and I measure 2m it’s good? Yes, this is a way of demonstrating the idiocy of this rule.

Then why gradually? .. Does he hope that the “children” in the meantime will grow up eating a lot of soup?

No frankly, just be honest with yourself and remove this rule, error is human.

 

For my part, I would continue not to make any game (RP and/or Combat) with the people of DS, as long as this rule exists. I do not impose, but I am entitled not to blame and therefore simply not to go somewhere where I disagree.

Following Dusty’s new rule, I want to express my opinion.

The first is that I take this rule as a sregration towards small people. It is as if tomorrow in your country, the leaders decided that from now on, small people no longer have access to restaurants, cinemas, clubs, buses … doesn’t it remind you of anything?

The second thing is that there is confusion between an avatar with the appearance of a child, so juvenile and size, I know lots of children who are very large for their age. An adult dwarf is not a child because he is small.

The third thing is that it penalizes our tribe, indeed, Wild is now like banished from Dusty Sands, because she’s just not to the famous dusty standard.

To say that this is the RL law, that LL goes .. I am not at all convinced that LL makes a policy on people of small sizes, but on the fact that adults, take on the appearance of a child (clothes, gestures etc and yes small size), but when I see a dwarf, a pygmé, I do not see a child, just a person of small stature. My own mother is very small, are she going to be banned from entering a restaurant because of that.

I am not trying to find out the real reasons for this rule, many of us have our own opinion.

Now the consequences, it is clear that I would not go to play in a place where Wild, my sis, will not be able to come and play with me. Already out of solidarity but quite simply that this rule has an impact on our own pr and our fights. Imagine a person coming to attack Wild on our sim and then running away to Dusty.. Wild will not be able to pursue her. Imagine that one of our sis is captured.. and that only Wild is available, well she will not be able to go save it or exchange it. They will just have to wait.. If we have to raid the talenders, are we going to do it by telling Wild to stay at the camp watching us? No, I wouldn’t do that. I remain in solidarity with my Wild sis and now, I suspend any game that will be on Dusty.

We do not impose our choices, you are of course you are free to go play on Dusty, but know that if you need help, some sis like Wild and me, will not come.

People of small sizes are not children because they are just smaller than the so-called norm. Tomorrow it will be the color of the eyes, the length of the hair ?

Following some discussions, I will go further by studying what LL says about Child-Play

Here’s what LL’s rule says about Child-Play:

LL definition on what is child avatar:

Quite simply, a child avatar is any avatar that attempts to present as a youth. This is not limited to humans, and can include furries (referred to in this instance as “cubs” or “babyfur”), neko, vampires, and other avatar selections.  Some doll avatars might also fit in this category.  »

« This does not necessarily include fairies (which may be child-like in appearance, as well as smaller than the average avatar), tinies (although human baby-shaped tinies do exist), or those wearing gothic lolita and/or cosplay fashions and styles. »

« It should be noted that “child” does not exclusively mean “baby.” Child avatars come in all ages, including older school aged children and teenagers. 

At this point, therefore, a person of small stature, is not necessarily child-play as long as his character traits are not made to look like a child.

What are Linden Lab’s policies towards Child Avatars

The only material in the Linden Labs Terms of Service pertaining to child avatars is found in section 6.3(viii) of the Terms of Service.  This prohibits sexualized situations involving child avatars, also known as “age play.” This is further detailed in the Age Play Policy, found here: Linden Lab Official:Clarification of policy disallowing ageplay. At this time, there is no other content in the ToS pertaining to child avatars, such as prohibitions on general use, violent or graphic content, or language.  »

Clearly, yes, in the case of a person playing a child and playing sexual acts it is forbidden and even impossible to accept in Gor, but again, a person of small stature, a pygmé,a dwarf, not looking like a child (not dressed as a child, no  childish gestures,  not a rp shot as if he were a child), can not be classified in the category “Child Play”

Here’s what’s interesting  to read:

Child avatars are allowed within Second Life. 1 A child avatar, even within a mature or adult region (but not participating in adult (in this case, sexual) ) activities is allowed. A child avatar is allowed do everything any other avatar is, with the following exceptions:

  • Child avatars in sexual situations (sexual congress obviously, though it is unclear beyond this) are not allowed and abuse reportable(ARable).
  • Public promotion (classified listing, profile, etc.) of sexual situations with child avatars is not allowed and ARable.
  • Creating areas for the purpose of sexual ageplay is not allowed and is ARable. This includes having items with sexual content (sexual poseballs or equipment) in proximity to items traditionally associated with children (swingsets, etc.)
  • Indicating that the *real age* of a child avatar (as opposed to a stated SL/role playing age) is belowmain grid age is not allowed and ARable.

Child avatar nudity has been called into question as well. While no language specific to nudity was included in the initial policies, child avatar nudity of the genital or chest regions, including in otherwise non-sexual situations (skin vendors, for example) can be a violation. This also applies to parcel descriptions: nudity or “clothing optional” language can not be included in a parcel description on a kid-specific area.

Yes child avatars are accepted even on adult areas, as long as they do not do the things mentioned above. This also proves that a small avatar, not resembling a child, is not prohibited in Gor, on the grounds that it is just small. By the way it reminds me of this avatar of a man, very small who wore a big beard .. did he look like    a child?

« Note that child avatars are allowed on PG, Mature, and even Adult public parcels, provided with the latter that they are adult verified.  Note that this does not necessarily apply to private parcels where one has the option to eject or ban as desired. The allowance of child avatars on adult rated land such as Zindra does not invalidate any of the above rules.

And yes, there, LL shows the side of private sims that eject people of small sizes just because they are small and even if they do not look like children, besides LL says here something that goes in the direction of what I explain again here :

As with all things, context is key, and err on the side of caution.

Yes, by excess of caution, we eject without taking into account all that the rule of LL says about Child-Play.

Here is LL’s official link on Child-Play, I invite you to read it for yourself.

A little humor and a lot of derision

From now on, the equipment of the people of DS, will be to have a meter on oneself. Like fishermen, when a catch is made, it will be necessary to measure the catch, if it is too small, it will be necessary to return it to the water.

Any resemblance with known avatars, is not a deliberate thing!
