OK, the proposed Adult-zoning changes surely now win the award for having the biggest amount of crap being written about them. Never, in the history of all SL changes, have I heard so much negative drivel - almost all of it from people who know next-to-nothing about the actual changes.

Seems like a legit concern to me. Many stores have rez enabled for various reasons, unpacking zones for example.

If someone drops some itsy-bitsy tiny invisible prims with "Show in Search" checked and dirty words in object description for example, your place could get deemed Adult in the next search cache.

And since the PG, Mature, Adult classification is on a Sim level, even if it happens in a parcel near yours your parcel could be affected and be removed from the non-adult search results.


Wouldn't this affect parcels with adult objects used in accordance with Linden Lab's "behind closed doors" policy? If someone has both a store and a private skybox, would their parcel be tagged "adult" even though their "adult" use isn't public?

csven: Only if they checked the "Show In Search" option for those items.

Your search visibility is based on your region setting period. I tested this till I was blue in the face.

Whatever. I'm getting tired of the hysteria on this topic. People need to test properly. If they did they would see how it works and leverage accordingly.

I.e.; if you are in a mature region and you have your parcel set to PG it matters not. Your parcel is mature whether you like it or not. In fact Linden Lab needs to remove parcel maturity rating from the application interface to remove confusion. Parcel rating is determined by the region rating. End of story. I would say more about search but it would reveal competitive advantage.
