    I ordered a region but I have not received it yet. Why?
    The Second Galaxy Development Team must first wait to be sure that payment has been received and verified by Paypal. Typically for a payment to post as completed this can take anywhere from a few minutes to 7-10 business days. Upon receipt of confirmation that the payment processing has been approved and completed, then the Second Galaxy Development Team will provision your region and let you know when it is ready for you to access. If for some reason after the 7-10 business days your order has not been provisioned, we encourage you to look in your paypal transaction info to see if it completed. If it did you can email your transaction proof with a copy of your order details to support@secondgalaxy.com for us to review.
    As a content creator, I am concerned about offering free shops in-galaxy
    By offering free shops to content creators, not only are we helping our content creators get started, but additionally we are helping to get good content on the grid for all members. Just simply submit a request to the development team for a free shop once you have created your account on Second Galaxy and we will be glad to help you get set up.
    Can I bring content from other grids?
    Yes, you can bring content from other grids. However, to keep in compliance with DMCA (Digital Media Copyright Act), you will need to ask the creator of the content you wish to bring over to provide a copy to you on Second Galaxy. If you, however, are the creator of the content then you can obviously bring the content over without the need for permission. Remember the Second Galaxy Development Team cannot legislate the law. The Digital Media Copyright Act is in the sole province of the United States Congress to legislate. If you believe you have found content, that you know you created on our grid being sold by others who are claiming to be the creator please use our DMCA complain process to let us know.
