Teen Second Life Buddy Center

Welcome to the Teen Second Life Buddy Center.

  • The Buddy Pagers or wall of boxes are connected to each Mentor Buddy's profile. This enables each Buddy to customize their own profile picture & thus customize their Buddy Pager. Your profile picture is what is displayed on your Buddy Pager when you are logged into Second Life. So if you would like your name to be visible then you can add your name on your profile pic. If you are offline your Buddy Pager will be black.
  • If you change your profile picture please note that the pagers on SLVEC update once a day. Probably at 0:00 SLT.
  • If you update your profile pic and by the next day your Buddy Pager does not update please check the following:
  1. On your Profile at the bottom be sure that "Show in Search" is selected.
  2. Your image for your pic is 512 x 512 or 256 x 256.
  3. If you still have issues with it after checking 1 & 2 and waiting for the pager to update then contact Mia Linden for assistance.
  • Need a Mentor Buddy?
