Trip to the OSGrid Welcome Station

Today I took a trip to the OSGrid Welcome Station where newcomers arrive the first time they log in. It’s a great welcoming station with loads to see along the pathway marked with green dots. The welcome station has freebies, shopping info and tutorials to get started on the OSGrid. Sign up to OSGrid or visit the inworld location to look around.

Hypergrid Business reported mid-August 2013 OSGrid has 3, 773 active users and 10, 971 regions. OSGrid is growing and recently there has been a increase in signups/visitors which is a good sign.
