Emerald Viewer Clear Up (New TOS)

This is reposted from THIS livejournal posting in the Second Lifers group by vixynne.

Emerald TOS Update–Xposted to “Alternative Viewers Status”
Okay, so. I’ve been following some of the SL blog posts regarding whether or not Emerald Viewer will be considered a violation of the new TOS as of April 30. I’m not a fan of the 2.0 Viewer, and I would hate to give up Emerald, but there’s no way I’d want to face perma-ban simply for logging in on it once the new TOS kicks in.

After reading post after post, some seeming to say “it’s not a big deal” and others proclaiming that the sky is about to fall, I decided to go to the horse’s mouth–so to speak. Since I’m a premium member, I realized LiveChat is an option (in a flash of uncharacteristic non-blondeness). The following is a transcript of my conversation with the LiveChat representative. I’m hoping it helps to clear up some of the Chicken Little-ish panic.
Please feel free to share and cross post wherever you feel it would be helpful to do so!

***********TRANSCRIPT FOLLOWS****************

[11:54 AM] Mel: Ok Vixynne what is your exact question regarding Terms Of Service?
[11:55 AM] Vixynne: I would like to know if the new Terms of Service will disallow Residents from accessing Second Life via the Emerald Viewer.
[11:56 AM] Mel: No it will not stop using Emerald Viewer, however Second Life do not support any technical issue while using Emerald Viewer.
[11:57 AM] Vixynne: So I won’t be banned for using Emerald Viewer–there are several vicious rumors to that effect going around. 🙂
[11:58 AM] Mel: You will not be banned for using Emerald Viewer we just will not support any issues while you use Emerald Viewer.
[11:59 AM] Vixynne: Thank you so much for your help, Mel, I appreciate it! That’s all I wanted to know.
[11:59 AM] Mel: So there is nothing else I can help you with?
[12:00 PM] Vixynne: No, thank you, you’ve answered my question thoroughly.
[12:00 PM] Mel: Enjoy the rest of your day.
[12:00 PM] Vixynne: Thanks, you too.

There you have it; in just about 5 minutes, I got my answer. *relieved sigh

Post ends here

Hope this helps clear up some things.
