(14 out of 30) You’ve been Banished !!!

2013 06 16 SL10B CORNFIELD

Welcome to the famous SecondLife Corn Fields. What you have never heard of them?

Any avatars hovering around the three plus year mark would remember the stories of those naughty pixel people, also known as griefers, being sent to “time out” by the lindens. Off to the corn field they would go, to think about what they had done. This was always rumour because the Corn Field was closed to the public. Unless you knew a naughty folk you just had to believe in the myth.

SecondLife Wiki confirms this explaining that “The corn field” was cut off from communication with the rest of the world (a reference to the classic Twilight Zone episode, “It’s a Good Life”). Example of Linden sense of humour. It was finally removed from the grid in mid 2012.

HOWEVER … drumroll … I am so excited to share with you that of the two sim’s donated to SL10B by Linden Labs, one is the infamous Corn Field sim. Yes you heard me . .the one and only!

Of course, purely to ensure my blog content covers all aspects of SL10B, I had to go for a visit because well between you and me … although never caught there has always been a little bit of naughty in me. *grins* (especially in those younger avatar years)


I was thinking … a game of baseball in the corn fields sounds kinda cool … anyone up for it???

Click here for you to take your own trip backwards in history and see where the naughty people hung out.

    I did visit the Corn Field this morning before I saw your above information. While I slowly teetered through it (no ao on) I wondered if something was going to jump out at me and why it was made. Thank you for the interesting story.

      Glad I could fill in the “reason” for its exsistance for you Dremmy 🙂

    “If you build it they will wish you into the cornfield” — OMG — hope you can’t get sent there for bad mixed metaphors! 🙂

      Giggles . .no I think we’ll leave that reason for you Vanessa and I’ll just say it was because curiosity sent the butterfly to the cornfields instead of killing the cat.
