Nicktropolis

turlif 投稿 "Nickelodeon has just launched a new Web playground for kids. It is a sort of Second Life for kids. A place where they can a create virtual identity for themselves, a 3D video game-like character that they create. This avatar is taken by the kids to various virtual locations on the website. There are also multimedia options available: radio stations, games and videos.



The chat area is the most controversial option available to the kids. They creators have dealt with the issue by allowing the avatars to interactive with each other, but only by using a series of Nickelodeon supplied phrases, or the avatars own words, as long as they fall in a Nickelodeon safe dictionary."
