The Shelter is closing down at the end of August 2020


The Shelter – 26th August 2020

It looks like the Shelter in Second Life will be sadly closing down at the end of August 2020 after 16 years of operating. Apparently the Shelter build is going to be preserved by Linden Lab as a heritage site. There will be a closing event at 7pm SLT on Sunday 30th August 2020 for the last dance. The Shelter is one of the oldest resident-ran help organisation’s in Second Life since 20th August 2004.

The Shelter was a good place for newbies to get started in Second Life, get freebies, hang out during live music events and much more. There used to be volunteers who helped new residents out every day.

It will be sad when the shelter shuts down as it will be another big loss in Second Life. If anyone has more info about this closure (the main reasons etc) please let me know. I will update my blog when I hear more.

  1. Wow. It was how I learned about SL and made some great friends. I also DJed there on Tuesday nights for about a year. Damn.

  2. I’m glad that the Shelter build is remaining, however once a build like this loses the community control (read: SS Galaxy) it becomes a shell of its former self.
