Linden Lab: Skill Gaming Policy update


On Monday 29th September Linden Lab posted a new blog post on the Second Life official blog announcing that from Saturday 1st November 2014 the new enforcement of the updated Skill Gaming Policy will come into effect. This will affect all residents in Second Life including those that have pending applications waiting for approval from Linden Lab.

In recent months there has been strong interest to become approved skill gaming Creators and Operators so that’s good news. If you are interested then you can apply here.

The full blog post

On September 1, 2014, the updated Skill Gaming Policy for Second Life went into effect. As a reminder, this policy allows for skill gaming activity in Second Life, but establishes that only approved Creators may make skill games with L$ payouts, only approved Operators may run them, and they may only be run on designated Skill Gaming Regions, where access is restricted to those who meet certain qualifications.

As our FAQs explained, applicants to the program who submitted their applications prior to the September 1 deadline have been permitted to continue their skill gaming activity while their applications are reviewed.

Beginning November 1, 2014, the enforcement of our Policy will apply to all Residents, including those with pending Skill Gaming applications that await Linden Lab review and approval. As of that date, any objects or regions found in violation of our Policy will be taken down. We strongly encourage all applicants to submit any outstanding materials for our review as soon as possible so that their applications may be processed before the deadline.

From the start, we’ve seen strong interest from Residents seeking to become approved skill gaming Creators and Operators. You can find the current list of approved participants here, and we’ll continue to review applications as quickly as possible to expand that list. If you would like to apply to become an approved skill gaming Creator or Operator, you can do so here.

Good luck to all those applying to become approved skill gaming Creators and Operators. :)

Ebbe Altberg joins the list of speakers for Expand NY 2014


Ebbe Altberg 

On Friday 7th to Saturday 8th November 2014 Engadget Expand NY 2014 will be taking place and Ebbe Altberg CEO of Linden Lab will be speaking at the event. I would imagine we will hear more about the next generation platform (SL2,0) that Linden Lab are working on and the latest updates on Second Life. Hopefully there will be a live stream to watch Ebbe speaking at Expand NY 2014 which would be most interesting.

Experience the Future of Technology

Engadget Expand is designed from the ground up for technology fans. The consumer event gives tech enthusiasts the unique opportunity to hear from favorite technology and science luminaries on stage, talk directly with Engadget editors, and get their hands on some of the latest and greatest new devices at the show floor exhibition. Expand NY is held annually in the North Hall of Javits Center, Manhattan’s premier venue for large-scale events.

I hope to post more about this event during November 2014. Stay tuned for updates. :)

About Making Strides Against Breast Cancer:

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer or MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight. Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and race money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.
In 1984, Massachusetts cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath wanted to find a way to celebrate fellow cancer survivors by raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Working with a committee of fellow survivors and other volunteers, “Margie” created a “move-along-a-thon” called Making Strides Against Cancer to bring people together in an event to move the fight against cancer forward. The first event, held in Boston, drew 200 participants and instantly became an annual city tradition.

About the American Cancer Society:

For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.

Ebbe Altberg confirms DK2 support is coming


On Thursday 28th August Ebbe Altberg CEO of Linden Lab on Twitter confirmed that official Oculus Rift DK2 support is coming along. There’s still no details yet on when the first implementation will be and I would predict that the public Oculus Viewer will be released in early-mid 2015. Also this week Ebbe Altberg via Twitter said that “SL going to get better and keep going for a long time“. Yay!

Confirmed

Ebbe Linden

DK2 support coming soon!

Check out David Rowe’s CtrlAltStudio Preliminary Rift DK2 Support viewer released on the 19th of August 2014.

I know some people are very anxious to try their DK2s in Second Life / OpenSim so I’ve released this alpha with some very preliminary DK2 support.
