Warning: Never Buy Blood or Lumen Containers on the SL Marketplace

January 5th, 2011 by Lyle Maeterlinck

All of the blood containers being sold on the Marketplace are fake or deactivated copies. If you buy a deactivated container on the Second Life Marketplace, we cannot help you. We do not sell official containers on the Marketplace, because as long as copy exploits still exist, we have to have containers rezzed and registered in-world before we can sell them. The only place to buy guaranteed blood containers is in the Bloodlines stores on the following regions:

Liquid Designs

Liquid East

Liquid Badlands

Liquid South

If you are anywhere else, you are buying a container that we cannot guarantee will work. ALWAYS test containers before you buy them. NEVER buy containers on the Marketplace, because it is not possible to test them first. Please see the procedure for how to test a blood container before you buy. Also, this is what to do if you have a deactivated container. Please be careful!

UPDATE: If you do end up buying a deactivated container on the SL Marketplace, please write a review on it saying that it is a scam, and warning others not to buy it. Also, please file an abuse report for fraud on the person who sold you the tank. You can get the name of the person who sold you the tank through your transaction history.

    Why did you stop the comment feed? Was it that what I was saying proved you wrong and you did not want to continue trying to explain yourself? Tsk Tsk Mars. You can not keep the truth from being told.

    If you look at bloodlines and the items that are offered for sale, it qualifies under Second Lifes mature rating policy as violence. The vampire biting, the rage slashing, the vampire wars are all considered acts of violence. Which meets mature requirements. So that makes it a mature game played in second life.

    If a individual can’t purchase a HUD from the original bloodlines place, due to age requirements, then they shouldn’t be allowed to play Bloodlines.

    You stated that you steared away from any mythology but in fact every picture and every item on your sim is refered back to the mythology of vampires.

    I can see we are at a standstill with this discussion. It seems to just be a repeat of what everyone already knows. You are welcoming underage individuals into Bloodlines that has a mature rating.

    Hi Zeus, we closed the comments on the age article because we had already stated our policy, you made it clear you disagreed with it despite our explanation, and so we didn’t think that the discussion was going anywhere. I disagree with you that the substance of Bloodlines qualifies as mature under the Linden Labs maturity guidelines. The adult rating is for intensely violent acts, such as torture or dismemberment, and we don’t believe that anything we have created qualifies as “intensely violent”. I believe that if you’re old enough to dress up as a vampire for halloween, you’re old enough to play Bloodlines. Of course, you’re free to add torture, dismemberment, or adult sexual situations to your rp, but these are not things necessarily included in the game. Regardless of what maturity rating any other authority places on us, the main point is that we wanted to clear up the misconception that we had an age policy and did not allow players under a certain age, so that people don’t waste time reporting “underage” players to us. I’m sorry you don’t like it, but we don’t have any further comment on this issue.
