FLASH! Skill Gaming - LL Drops the Ball Again

Well, we were all holding our breaths as LL moved to implement the new Skill Gaming policy.  And, once again, it seems that LL has managed to stick their foot down their gullet.

A great many people have suddenly found that they can no longer access regions which have had the new Skill Gaming flag added to them.  This could be for a legitimate reason, or it could be due to LL's improper implementation.

Here are some legitimate reasons:
If you think you've satisfied all of the above requirements, and still can't get in, here are some things to try:
  • Find the region on the Map and teleport there directly, instead of using a landmark
  • Try teleporting to a nearby region and walking in
  • Try accessing SL using a different Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Try changing to a different DNS server, such as the Free Public Google DNS
  • Change your payment info...use a different credit card, or use your PayPal account instead of a credit card.
If nothing works, then file a Support Case with Linden Lab, and also visit the JIRA bug-reporting page and comment and/or vote for Bug 7097

For discussion on this issue, see this forum thread: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/General-Discussion-Forum/Gaming-Skills-Region-Problem/td-p/2811058

And, if you come to Second Life primarily for gamb...er, skill gaming...then consider that you might have a gambling addiction.  Go here to get help:  Gamblers' Anonymous
