The updates and changes on the Second Life Community sections are completed. The blogs and forums are active again. Check them out. They are a bit different so they will take some getting used to for some people. I count myself as one of those. ;)
Linden Lab is currently redoing the Second Life Community sections completely (Blogs, Forums, etc..). Those areas are offline right now. It will be interesting to see what they come up with. An overhaul of those features is long overdue. I hope they construct a good user-friendly and interactive forum/blog system and then begin the work on the Destination Guide and other neglected featured sections too.
I know many people are waiting (holding off re-joining or joining) until the emergence of Linden Lab's new virtual world, Sansar (sometimes grudgingly called by some SL II), but Second Life is still active, is still a going concern, and is larger grid-wise than ever. To be honest, it is probably too big for it's own good. *chuckle*
I admit that I will be checking out Project Sansar when it opens, but I do not believe that I will ever stop using Second Life. Time will tell. For me, SL is still a great place.
Hello! I just wanted to bump this community to see if anyone is still here on LiveJournal and, for that matter, on Second Life.
Cheers! And see you in-world. :)
I'm trying to find a good AO for my husband. Most male Ao's seem to violent or macho for what he wants. He's an Fur, like me. Only a dragon in stead of a cat, with Indiana Jones tendencies. There is sadly not an Indy AO on the Marketplace.
Has anyone had experience with these "Meeroos" I am seeing all over the grid? I joined a couple of groups advertising them and I swear, it's like a layer of hell reserved for used car salesmen!
So, my other self rented a parcel on Xandia. It seemed nice enough, and I was just looking for a change.
My avatars tend to rent long-term, usually close to or over a year, so I wanted something where it was inexpensive, but not going to have to deal with a lot of club traffic. Xandia seemed decent.
I should have known there would be issues when, seconds after I "bought" the land, the sim owner teleported me to another parcel to ask me if I knew why she couldn't sell them.
Um... okay. We discussed a few ways she could increase traffic and market the sim.
She friended me.
5 minutes later, she unfriended me.
I went along my merry way and just used the place as a home base, to mostly relax and listen to music as I did things in First Life.
Well, last night, someone dropped a megaprim on the sim. Annoying, sure, but not the end of digital life as we know it.
I thought I was polite. It's been my experience that it is polite to give the sim owner a chance to deal with non-emergency abuse like this. Mostly because this way, they can then handle the situation and ban if necessary. At least that is how I handled it when I owned sims, and what other sim owners of places I have lived have requested.
Nothing was in the covenant about dealing with griefers.
So, I sent a message: Good evening - if you have a moment, it seems someone decided to play with prims and dropped a mega prim on Xandia.
That's it. Nothing else.
This morning, I found emails from missed messages. Since I won't violate TOS, I cannot post them here, but I was told she was not my slave (!?!?) and just ripped into me for sending her anything at all about the megaprim.
My lindens were not refunded, but I was booted out and my items returned to me.
It was one of those "huh" moments. This was the only interaction I'd had with her outside of the day I rented the place.
So, just a warning, I guess, if you are looking at properties. Xandia (Fake Estate Group) is a nice property if you don't say a word to the owner!
