The Shelter in Second Life will be closing down at 8pm SLT on Sunday 30th August 2020 it has been confirmed within the last few days or so. There will be two final events happening this weekend which will be a pool party and a formal dance event.
The reasons for the closure is not really known at this point. The good news is that The Shelter building will be archived by Linden Lab very soon. The Shelter will remain inworld for as long as Second Life is still online for. The Shelter group will remain in place however for all new members who want to join they will no longer be allowed in the group going forward now.
This is the official group notice that was recently sent out to all members of The Shelter group in Second Life. It’s a shame that no one can take over the shelter and keep it running.
As I’m sure you will have heard by now The Shelter will be closing it’s doors as of Sunday 30th August 2020 8 PM SLT,
The reasons for this are numerous and too lengthy for this note, but it is not all bad news as The Shelter building will be Archived by the Lindens and will remain in world for as long as Second Life is around
I know a great many of you have considered The Shelter home and I am sorry to all of you, I hope you will continue to enjoy you Second Life’s
