---------------- QUOTE FROM JACK LINDEN ------------------------------
"The policy we announced is about Traffic, how that relates to Search, and how a deliberate attempt to falsely drive up the traffic score will no longer be allowed. We know from your comments that you want Search to be fair and relevant, and we want that too. Whether a landowner uses Bots or Camping Chairs, or Camping Chairs with Bots in them, the effect is the same - the traffic score for that parcel is inflated unfairly."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


TIPS FROM ALICIA STELLA DESIGN

To be certain you are not penalized for use of any Camping or Paying objects you can take the following precautions:

A: Use Camping/Paying furniture only on parcels that are NOT set to Show in Search.

If your parcel is not showing in Search the use of camping should not be against this new policy. This method is great if you just want to help newbies get some cash. You can not advertise the location in search. (Keep in mind, if on shared land, it is possible for neighbors to complain if your camp items are draining region resources such as Script Time or too many agents. Always be courteous to your neighbors.)


B: Use Paying devices specifically for paying REAL avatars for REAL work.

Pay your Models for modeling your clothes, skins, hair, etc using an ASD Model Stand and you should be within the new guidelines. Use a Pay Poseball to pay employees for various jobs or a have your Dancer use a paying Dance Cage at your club, etc. LL has announced a way to allow us to "opt out of traffic" for bots, see this link to learn how. Real people, NOT BOTS should ALWAYS be allowed within the new policy and bots will be/can be if they are set to opt out of traffic rating.
