Burn2 Recent Polls & Surveys: Reports

Burn2 RIST Survey Report

This report is the result of a survey to see if we are being as inclusive as possible in facilitating participation at the general planning meetings and to identify possible barriers to participation.

Burn2 Child Avatar/Nudity Policy Update Report

Linden Lab's new TOS restrictions on child avatars may require some updates of our own within Burn2 and on its regions in SL. The goal is to follow the direction suggested by the survey and produce a policy in a direction that has the least adverse impact on Burn2 or its participants. Burn2 leads will craft a policy based on the results of this poll and share to the community for review before final adoption.
