Teen Grid Has Officially Merged


After 1pm SLT today, Linden Lab started to transfer accounts and land held by 16-17 year olds from TSL to the Main Grid. Many residents started to teleport others over to the TSL regions which works successfully. It’s going to be good meeting up with old friends again after 2 years or so since I transferred to the Main Grid back in December 2008.

The process still may take some time yet to fully complete. Oskar Linden says that the “map server will fix itself after 2am tonight”, meaning that TSL regions will show visible to the rest of the MG then. Oskar Linden also said that Teens will be transferring alphabetically via script and Oskar said that “we’ve been testing the script all week”.

Welcome Teens to the Main Grid. Good luck to all of you! 🙂

Grid Merge Failed Attempt 1, Green Light for Teen Migration This Morning


According to Blaze Borgin blog post the merge didn’t happen yesterday. Sad to say that Linden Lab have broke their promise and failed to deliver on time. It was due to take place in the early hours of Thursday morning but now it looks like it may happen this morning SLT (21st January 2011).

Whew it’s late. Anyways, not-so-surprising news from terrence…

[21:47]  Terrence Linden: just telling everyone that I failed, but back on it tomorrow morning

I’ll be checking back tomorrow. *yawn* I need some sleep.

When more develops I will publish it. Good luck to everyone! 🙂

21st January 2011 Update Status

  • [10:35]  Terrence Linden: haha.  sure, so far so good
  • [10:35]  Terrence Linden: i’ll let everyone know
  • [10:38]  Terrence Linden: i need to sleep!
  • [10:38]  Terrence Linden: 🙂
  • [10:45]  Terrence Linden: not right now
  • [10:45]  Terrence Linden: but when we get started people will know

Still at this stage its still very unknown on when it will take place. My estimations for attempt 2 puts the merger sometime this afternoon/evening SLT,  Attempt 3 during Saturday daytime or Attempt 4 during Sunday daytime. I guess there will be a formal announcement when it takes place very soon.
