Today I joined the 3rd Rock Grid as part of my opensim journey through the Second Life metaverse. The 3rd Rock Grid is owned and operated by the 3rd Rock Grid Management Board (3RGMB). It’s a opensim community based grid. The 3rd Rock Grid website looks very neat and welcoming.

The signup process was straightforward and simple. Once you have activated your account in email it will send you to the Avatar Account Activation page where it will say “Your avatar has been created successfully and can now be used”.

When I logged in for the first time on the Friendship region where there was a Welcome Greeter that said “[08:25] Welcome Greeter: Hello, Daniel. Welcome to 3rd Rock Grid (3RG), we pride ourselves on our community”. Firstly I was greeted by a friendly mentor that guided me through the portals including welcome area, freebies and telehub with landmarks.
I explored around the Friendship region then joined some popular groups. The next location I went to is the Welcome Center which is very newcomer friendly with starter kits and lot’s of freebies.
