SL9B no centralised party by Linden Lab this year

I was very disappointed to hear that Linden Lab will not be hosting a big birthday centralised party for SL9B this year. Instead the lab wants the Second Life community to host their own events to mark SL9B around the grid in June 2012. I have always enjoyed every year visiting the birthday events, seeing all the great builds and creativity all in one place. I guess it’s the end for Linden Lab events with the SL community which is not good at all and I say this because in the past few years I have noticed Linden Lab doesn’t host big events like they used to.

Events (including regions) axed by Linden Lab in recent years.

  • Burning Life
  • Winterfest
  • Snowball fights
  • Valentines
  • Halloween
  • Linden Prize (2011)
  • SL Birthday (2012)
The SL blog announcement by Linden Lab on 17th April 2012.

Second Life’s 9th Birthday is coming up in June! This year it’s all about you — the denizens of the grid, the sultans of Second Life  and connoisseurs of creativity— and we want to highlight the many unique and innovative ways the community has made Second Life their own.

This year we will focus the spotlight on community events.  No one throws a better event or party than the Second Life community! If you’re having an event to celebrate Second Life turning nine, we want to know about it!

Submit your event or party information to the Second Life Destination Guide by emailing with the subject line “SL9B Event.” Some events will likely be featured on Second Life social media, so keep an eye on FacebookGoogle PlusTumblrPlurk and Pinterest! If you take snapshots at any of the events, share them with us on Facebook for a chance to be chosen as the Pic of the Day.

Let’s get the party started!

There is mixed views on the SL Forums and SLUniverse Forums about this announcement on SL9B.

I would like to see the SL community organise something like BURN2 for SL9B which would be interesting and I think is really worth doing this year. 4-6+ regions would be a good amount depending on if anyone wants to help fund (costings) the event like BURN2.

What are your views on SL9B ?
