A trial version of Muxlim Pal, an online virtual world aimed at Muslims, has been rolled out.
It’s described as:
Muxlim Pal is the first Muslim virtual world providing a new kind of family friendly social online environment for your entertainment.
The values of the site include an absence of sexual and profane material, references to violence, drugs, and so on, not only out of respect for Muslim values, but also to make the site more family-friendly.
The community guidelines say that “a wide variety of non-religious and religious content including discussions, polls, videos, images, files, audios, debates, praise or constructive criticism are welcome.” and that “everyone is welcome to express their faith and lifestyle in their own way. We only ask that you express yourself with sensitivity and respect towards others and the community.”
The Muxlim Pal folks say:
The community believes that a welcoming attitude and transparent communication creates better understanding between people.
Can’t argue with that. The Muxlim Blog has more information. If anyone wants to check out the localization and cultural aspects of Muxlim Pal by signing up, then we’d love to hear your comments.
