The Shared Avatar Project

Someone has set up an avatar named Share Svoboda and posted the password to an accompanying blog. The idea is to let people take control of the avatar and see how it evolves and where it goes. I think it's a cute idea, but some folks have been jackasses already and changed the password and tried to have the account canceled. (I think the account creator has been able to recover the password, but I'm not sure on the status of the account cancel attempt, as cancels aren't immediate.) Looks like someone just got the av a freebie MystiTool, which should be nice since that keeps a log of places you've teleported to.

Anyway, check it out IF YOU DARE!!!

Interesting tidbit: The account was initially supplied with a certain amount of L$ but people have drained it. You can see who by looking into the avatar's Transactions History on the SL web site. People are discussing the TOS implications on the SL forums. Also, check out its Photo Album.

Svoboda means liberty in the czech language. Interesting idea but ultimately doomed because of asshats.

This reminds me of the garden troll that was kidnapped and taken on a trip around the world, the kidnappers sending postcards to the owner.

I might have to give it a try, it could be an adventure

It was my understanding that sharing accounts was not allowed, and one of the few things the Lindens seem to take action against when they learn of it occurring. Has that changed?

That would be cool to see how this progresses. Id try it, but risking being on the LL blacklist wouldn't be worth it. At least not for me right now.

Seeing things from another point of view is always interesting.

What happened to the av just proves that SL is full of dickwads. Make something open for the public and someone has to take it all for themselves.

What a wonderful world.

The guy returned the account, and the new password's up on the blog. I don't think he realized that SL sends an email to the original email address, telling who swiped the account. The real Share owner googled the email and found the guy's blog and SL name, etc.

We go to a dance party!

Unfortunately, Share discovers, dancing is deforming to boxes.

Ooooo! Slingo is still alive and well! Guess you just can't keep people from having fun!

Too bad - Share has only $4 left after spending $1 at Nylon's, so we just watch.

Whew! Time to relax. We go to Coco Beach to rest for a while in the warm breezes and soft sands of the peaceful Azure Islands.

Till next time, Aloha!
