Questions & answers

Will my inventory transfer to SL?

Generally, yes!

Will my forum access transfer?

Yes, however it may take a few days to complete this transfer.

How do I get to SL when I have been transferred?

I guess it is time the mystery is revealed. Blue Linden puts on talons and swoops into TSL where you are picked up and carried (all the while he is doing his infamous double barrel rolls) to a giant crater. In one valiant swoop, Blue drops you into the hole where you will find a miners pick. Take the pick and start digging your way to SL.

OK, I'm kidding. When we transfer you to SL, your next login will put you into the Second Life grid. It's not quite as fun as digging your way, but it's a lot faster!

You will receive a response to your support ticket letting you know the transfer has been completed. Once you log into SL, contact Matthew Linden for an invitation to the Teen Transfer Group via IM or ticket. We'll provide you with a region location where you can build and use to set-home for a while.
