I am looking forward to attending this town hall chat session because they are always pretty interesting. Read the full blog announcement below…
With SL15B behind us (and SL16B to look forward to!) we thought it was time to have another Town Hall, and give Residents a chance to ask about Second Life and hear the latest news on what is being worked on and planned in Second Life. We’ll also share specific updates on our product development roadmap, as discussed earlier this year.
Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg will be appearing at a “Town Hall” chat session on Thursday, September 13th 2018 at 9:30 a.m. (SLT/Pacific). This is your chance to interact directly with Ebbe as he discusses 2018 and beyond.
Got a question you want to ask? Post it in the Community Forum thread “September 2018 – A Conversation with Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg” in advance of the Town Hall. Questions will be selected from all submissions made prior to Sept. 10, so make sure to weigh in now!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Sept. 13 to see if your question is selected. On that day, you can join us live for the Town Hall meeting. Location will be publicized closer to the event – stay tuned!
We’ll see you inworld soon!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars and please spread the word.
Islandz is the new official name for the new grid opening soon after the closure of InWorldz recently.
Islandz will be a closed grid and will not be hypergrid enabled.
On Sunday 19th August Beth Reischl started the setup for the database recovery apparently and once that has been completed then work can start on the OARS.
So far no date has been set for the opening of Islandz. Stay tuned for further updates very soon.
New Regions Alert
Second Life Map – 20th August 2018
According to the latest sims report on the SLUniverse Forums it looks like Second Life has a brand new continent north east on the map. There are 80 SSP brand new regions at the moment which are closed to the public. It appears these regions (SSP1 – SSP80) are marked as Linden owned at this time.
It will be interesting to see what these regions will be used for and whether it will be open to the public in the near future.
New SSP continent
Tyche Shepherd mentioned this information on the new continent – see below
A brand new 80 region terraformed continent appeared on the grid last week . Currently closed to the public it’s composed of 80 moderate rated contiguous regions names SSP1 to SSP80 ,I’m assuming these are Lab owned (though it’s nearest neighbours are Private Estates) and have marked them as Linden Lab owned.
Hopefully the lab will let us know soon about these new regions.
Happy 14th Birthday
The Shelter in Second Life will be celebrating it’s 14th birthday on Monday 20th August 2018. The Shelter has been a safe place for new avatars in Second Life to get started with the basics, socialise with others and get started exploring the grid.
It’s definitely one of the oldest resident run help organisations since August 2004 in Second Life. The Shelter was one of the first places I visited on the grid when I transferred over many years ago. I loved attending the events over the years here.
Come and check out The Shelter today.
Please spread the word 🙂
