As anticipated, Linden Lab has come up with a "Frequently Asked Questions" in regards to their gacha machine ban. It has been added to their announcement, appearing below it.
Q: Is it possible to extend the policy deadline?
A: We are sorry that we are not able to further extend the policy deadline. However, we have been able to extend the enforcement of the policy change an additional 30 days. To be clear, starting on September 1 we expect gacha as a sales mechanism to cease. However we will start with warnings, and any enforcement of the policy as it would be applied on an account will not begin until after September 30.
Q: How are breedables impacted by this policy change?
A: This current policy change and deadline does not apply to breedables or other life simulation products. At the present we are working with external counsel on the subject of breedables. If any action is required we will make a separate announcement and have a separate timeline associated with it.
Q: Will popular games like 7seas be impacted by this policy change?
A: No, because the purchase of bait to go “fishing” is a purchase being made of a known item, and also the fish you catch while playing the game are non-transferable. To be clear, if they are not currently, they must be going forward.
Q: How are subscription boxes affected?
A: Subscription boxes are not affected as long as all subscribers are getting the same content box. Different items being sent to different subscribers on a chance basis is not allowed.
Q: How are Linden Homes affected?
A: Linden Homes are not impacted by this policy change. Linden Lab owns the homes and they are not transferable.
Linden Lab stated this list of questions will likely be updated as time goes on.
