Prison Role Play in Second Life Community Group – Role Play Environments Guide
The Prison Role Play in Second Life group is intended to bring together all those who are interested in, or curious about, this unique genre of role play. The creators, leaders and members of this group are committed to the belief that a strong community will result in an overall enhancement in the quality of role play as well and increased participation. The content of our website will be from players who themselves are actively involved in one or more of the many role play environments. We will also strive to encourage those who are new to either prison role play or second life as a platform to get involved. What we are not is a means to in any way direct or advance a particular role play or spread drama. Such posts, comments or submissions will vanish with haste.
What this group is not is an attempt to guide the evolution of the community, style or quality in any way. Sharing, information and providing a forum for members to communicate we believe will enrich the role play of all. The focus will be on those who create for the more reality based environments and those who combine correctional play with other elements of law enforcement role-play.
While group owners and website editors will ensure notices and content are consistent with the groups theme, they will not edit others views. Thus the content of the website represents only the views of the authors. Comments are encouraged yet must remain on the theme and content, not in any way derogatory or personal.
Role Play Environment Members
One of the key roles we hope this group will perform is to provide members, and those who may be interested but not willing to take the dive, with a sense of the diversity of role play environments with which they can become involved. To do that we are providing two means of communication:
A. Listing and Static Page on the Web Site
Each role play environment is encouraged to provide the information that will fill out a static page on your activity. All pages will be laid out the same to provide the community members with an easy overview of your activities. While this page will be static (unlike a listing or add in world which you can change at will) you can make any changes you desire by sending the content to a site editor. Please also remember this rite is intended for a general audience so all content and photographs must be PG-13. Your information should fit the following general guidelines:
1. The name of the Environment or Merchant Store
2. The name of ONE Second Life Resident who interested persons can contact in world and an email if available for non residents.
3. A short description of the role play environment of at most 400 words.
4. Up to 3 photographs (maximum 650 x 650) to be included. One should be indicated as the primary picture to be used.
5. The address of any external web site the environment or creator may have which directly relates to the theme. Merchants can include a link to their SLMarketplace Store. We would hope that any listed website would also display a link back to this group.
6. An in world SLurl that those interested can use to teleport to your location.
B. Notice Rights to the Prison Role Play in Second Life Group
We hope you will keep the group informed as to developments in your role play environment and will have the ability to send notices to the group. Only two owners or administrators will have this ability and as with the web posting this group is intended for a general audience and thus all notices must be PG-13. Please also remember this is to keep people informed about developments and role play opportunities, not to spam the group with daily events and such (that’s for your own groups). No hard rules here but please use common sense or discuss with one of the owners.
What the Group Asks In Return
This group is intended to unite and grow the prison role play community, nothing more and nothing less. To be clear while the owners and organizers have environments and stores of their own, this is being done solely for the belief that a larger, growing and vibrant community is good for all participants. The only thing we request is that participating role play environments display an information kiosk near their arrivals area for those who travel through your world to learn about the group’s efforts. The kiosk is small, 7 prims, 3 very low lag scripts that are purely touch dispensers of group invites, a note card and link to the web site. That’s it.
Please contact Rhia Juran or Torie Breen for more information.
