Greetings to our Visitors!

Elf Clan is based on three Charter concepts:

* Honor * Respect * Friendship *

These things are very important to us, both as a group and as individuals.

 

Problems with Grid Shutdown

When the Inworldz grid closed down all asset information was lost.  This means inventory items, creations and creator information was lost as well. 

Elf Clan lands are historic regions, dating from the very early days of Second Life and onward.   Our lands went through four distinct creative phases before the recent fifth re-creation forced by the destruction of Inworldz.

Elf Clan Home Lands contain creations and donations by many people.  Those creations are part of our history, tracking our growth as a group over a period of 14 years.  Unfortunately Inworldz shut down and those lands later re-built, no creator information was retained in the reconstruction files (OARs).  As a result all creator names were lost... and items re-constructed on our lands were re-constructed under one owner/creator name (that is how OAR reconstruction works in a situation where no asset information exists).  The chosen name is our friendly tiny Snoots Dwagon, who will be in charge of maintaining these lands.

 

Our Humble Request to You

If you find your creations on our primary ElfClan lands, we request to retain those creations on these lands only, as part of our history.   We give you our solemn oath those creations will not be copied, transfered, sold or otherwise knowingly distributed.  Your creations will be considered a solemn trust... part of Elf Clan's history. 

If you contact either Snoots Dwagon or Wayfinder Wishbringer (see contacts on our home page), we will be happy to provide Attribution Notice-- adding you to a posted list of creators contributing to our historic lands.  It is our desire to give you credit for your work as part of our history.

If you do not wish your items to remain on these lands all you need do is let us know.  Quite often we will already recognize you as an Elf Clan Creator and will honorably comply with your removal request.   If question remains as to creator authenticity, we may request additional information according to established intellectual property guidelines.

 

VISIBLE GROUP HISTORY

The creations on our primary regions present a visible, major part of Elf Clan's history.  These are regions people recognize as the Home Lands of Elf Clan... and span many years.   We hope creators consider it an honor to be a part of this, as we consider it an honor to have your creations as part of this tribute to Elf Clan-- the oldest active Fantasy Group in the virtual worlds.
