Misbehaving Second Life Players Banished to Corn Field

Second Life Corn Field


Players in the Second Life online game may get banished to The Corn Field if they misbehave in the game. This is a real place in the virtual world.

Clickable Culture reports that residents have revealed the existing of the corn field prison. It is described as an odd moonlit environment featuring rows of corn, a tractor and television sets.

Yaffle told Clickable Culture that he received an email from Linden Lab after the breaking the rules. The email said he was going to be sent to the Corn Field. Yaffle says, "I thought it was a joke. I never even knew it existed before I went there, and by the looks of it, a lot of other people didn't either."

The Corn Field was apparently only a rumor at first but Clickable Culture says it was recently confirmed when a Linden Lab's Senior VP of Community and Support wrote a note in the Second Life discussion forums.

The Senior VP wrote, "Sometimes when someone is suspended for a short time they are sent to the cornfield. The VP also say, "Once someone is permanently banned they are no longer welcome in Second Life, anywhere, including the cornfield."

Sounds like you better shape up if you are sent to the cornfield.
