On Wednesday 29th July Linden Lab announced the shut down dates for Magic Boxes and Xstreet following the launch of the Viewer-Managed Marketplace (VMM). As many know already the automated migration process started on 23rd July 2015 and will continue until the final closure dates.
With the launch of Viewer-Managed Marketplace (VMM), Magic Boxes and Xstreet will be retired. Merchants who are still using Magic Boxes to sell their items will need to manually migrate their listings by August 17, 2015, when Magic Boxes will no longer appear on Marketplace. We will leave Xstreet up until August 27, 2015, so that interested Merchants can pull their data before the site is shut down for good.
This viewer allows Merchants to manage inventory associated with Marketplace Listings from within the viewer. In addition to making management of Marketplace Listings easier, sale of items that Merchants do not have the right to copy will now be supported with Viewer-Managed Marketplace.

InWorldz has a new look welcome area built by YadNi Monde and here are some first time snapshots of the area. I really think the layout is better than before and it’s going to be a big help to newcomers. My fav area is the central area of the region and the buildings around the outside look really nice.
Don’t forget there are many helpful Mentors at the welcome area ready to help out.
Come and check it out! 🙂
