Over 70+ avatars watched The Temple set on fire and burn to the ground this afternoon at the BURN2 sims in Second Life. The Temple 2012 burning was awesome and the event lasted for 30 minutes. The Man and The Temple have been and will always be my favourite events at BURN2 in Second Life because it’s rocks every year. I’m very impressed with BURN2 2012 and I’m much looking forward to BURN2 2013 events!

Due to the unscheduled maintenance by Linden Lab this morning the 4am SLT burn of The Temple has now been delayed until Monday 5th November at 4am SLT. The Temple events for today are set for 12pm SLT and 8pm SLT as planned at BURN2 2012.

SL downtime this morning
The unscheduled maintenance lasted for around six hours this morning and caused the sl web website/profile to go offline too. There was many angry SL residents that took to Plurk and Twitter to say what they thought. Many decided to go else where like on InWorldz when there was more than 40 residents packed into InWorldz Desert Island welcome area. Busy than normal this morning and many new residents I believe because of the downtime.
More BURN2 2012 coverage soon!
To mark the end of BURN2 2012 the core team set The Man on fire three times today in Second Life. The burns lasted for around 40 minutes and more than 50+ avatars attended each session. The Man burns down in different sections until there is nothing left on the ground. It was great to watch the burn of The Man in 2012 and its nice to see high interest at BURN2 2012.
New snapshots of The Man burning down
The Temple will be set on fire on 4th Sunday November 2012 at the following times..
- 4am SLT (delayed due to sl downtime for over 5 hours)
- 12pm SLT
- 8pm SLT
Note that the regions the burns will happen in will be closed one hour prior to the burns for set up and preparation. You can watch the burns safely from adjacent regions!
The sims close at midnight tonight on Sunday 4th November 2012 and the cleanup of the six BURN2 regions starts next week.
