I'm part of the group of students who is analyzing virtual worlds and so, after getting my parents to sign the permission form, Mrs. Vicki suggested I go into Second Life. After three days of frustration, I still have not been able to sign on!!! I hope someone will help me!
When I tried to make an account with Second Life, I started to make my avatar's name and make an account.
You have to get a security code sent your phone, but get this they will not allow you to send it to an Alltel number. (the service I have)
So, I had to borrow one of my friend's phones and put their number in. I finally finished and told it to create an account and when I did, it said the limit to a household or individual accounts has been reached!! I don't understand.
When my friends tried to sign up, the same thing happened. (Note from Mrs. Vicki: I wonder if this has to do with the school's IP address and the fact that we are behind a firewall with one IP address at school.)
I have spent about four hours trying to create my account, and I have still been unable to log in.
