Contrary to popular belief, the Teen Grid is not actually a grid. It is a small mass of regions located on the furthest point of the south eastern area of the world map. For half a decade, this so-called safe haven has been a home to thousands of teen residents over the years, creating several items, shops, roleplay areas and armies over the years. It has also been widely used by several non profit educational organizations hoping to reach out to teens through a new medium. However, over the years, the success of the teen grid began to decline. Copybotting and content theft was on the rise, the number of resident owned estates paled in comparison to those that were linden owned, the teen grid just wasn’t profitable anymore. Now in 2010, the decision has been made to close it.
