Well that didn't take long.
Presumably using their theme for 2017 as justification, Relay For Life of Second Life REQUIRES these First Life details if you want to register a team with them:
- What country is the team mostly from?
- Languages spoken by your team members
Do they seek to segregate or assign teams to certain sections of the track based on their origins and regardless of what the team may have in mind for their build?
No matter, these are in violation of Second Life's many rules (as covered in my post this past January), and those rules are in place for a reason.
The info the committee requires is none of their business and irrelevant for the task of fundraising and fighting cancer. It also poses a security risk to residents.
I want to add that if you happen to know a language and have helped with guides and information, that did not involve giving personal info about you and your virtual friends or forfeit having a team.
How quickly the appearance of respect for volunteer relayers melted away.
