City Noir is going Adult soon

[14 Sep 2009 Edit: CITY NOIR has switched over to Adult]

Some time in September (I haven’t determined the date yet, but I have received an email from SL telling me the dateline is sometime in September), City Noir will switch over to Adult mode. I need to do this to comply with LL’s new rules.

What does this mean for everyone?

Well, it means if you aren’t flagged for adult content, you cannot visit the Secret Warehouse at City Noir, whether to hang out, shop, or to update your gear (I’ve a Plan B for updating though, read on).

You can get yourself flagged for Adult by:

1 Getting verified:

  • supply payment information (Credit Card or verified Paypal) at SL’s Update Billing Info page (login required) or your shopping funds in, OR
  • age-verify with third-party Aristotle from SL’s Age Verification page (login required). Aristotle promises not to keep identity-specific info – they just confirm yes, or no. More info here.

2. Turning on the adult flag in your SL profile:

Note: If you’ve just updated your payment info etc., you may need to relog before you will get the Adult option.

How to tell if you are already verified?

Try TP’ing to the adult mainland hub here. If you can, you’re verified.

What to do with LULU gear if you’re not verified for whatever reason?

You can continue to use LULU gear.

You can also continue to update your gear at the ruins of Lulu’s original Secret Room (Lulu’s very first discreet shoppe) at Wolof, a PG part of Mainland. Please continue to keep it discreet.

[Edit start]

How to buy LULU gear if you’re not verified?

The only way is to get someone else who is age-verified to buy it for you as a gift at the Secret Warehouse.

Good luck!

  1. I did not understand why the linden made a new “mature” named adult.

    SL is only allowed for person over 18 years.

    Eroticfree land is PG and not Mature °°

    And the age verification is still beta and didn’t work for me yet.

    Linden made my SL very unhappy. And I think I will leave it in some days/weeks.

    1. Many people feel the same way as you do. I think LL is only doing this to protect themselves from potential liabilities. There is one Congressman who was pushing to legislate virtual worlds like Second Life on the basis of minors accessing adult content.

      But it is a hassle to age-verify for some non-US residents. That said, there are ways to do it legally, since LL now allows credit card info on file as a form of verification.
