On 24th January Linden Lab posted a blog post on wanting feedback from the Second Life community to make “Second Life a more pleasant experience for all”. The lab (under email@example.com) will be emailing thousands of residents in the days ahead with an invitation to complete a survey and give feedback. The Flickr team are conducting it’s own independent research on the Second Life community.
I hope that the lab will review the feedback and will seriously consider the top popular suggestions/new features. Maybe a blog post later in the year mentioning what came out on top from the research would be nice to see.
The upcoming Lab Gab special with Philip Rosedale and Brad Oberwager will be announced in the next week or so. Expect some kind of announcement soon. Hundreds of questions have been submitted for Lab Gab and I’m sure it’s going to be a popular episode to find out what’s coming next.
The blog post reads this….
As 2022 begins, we are looking to set new goals and make Second Life Residents happier!
Later today and in the following weeks, firstname.lastname@example.org will be emailing thousands of Residents with an invitation to complete a survey and give feedback. Please keep an eye out for it, and feel free to share your thoughts on how to make Second Life a more pleasant experience for all. We’ve also been conducting qualitative research with a smaller group over the past few weeks. If you participated in that research, you are still eligible to take part in this survey.
Also, for Residents active on Flickr, the Flickr team is conducting its own independent research on the Second Life community. Flickr has sent some of its own users an email in the last few days asking for feedback and suggestions to make their website a more seamless and engaging experience for the Second Life community. The email also mentions 360 Snapshots and Flickr’s new efforts to help connect Second Life Residents on their platform. If you received this email, please consider participating! And if you haven’t already, make sure to follow our official Second Life account on Flickr and join our official Second Life Flickr Group.
So check those spam folders and don’t hit the delete button. We hope you take this opportunity to have your voice be heard!
In other news, we are really excited to see the response from the community on Philip Rosedale’s return. We’ve received hundreds of questions from all of you and are including many of them in the forthcoming “Lab Gab.” We should be announcing the streaming date for “Lab Gab” with both Philip and Oberwolf in the next week or two. Keep an eye on the Second Life Public Calendar for the date!
Keep your eyes open for the survey coming to your inboxes soon. This is a good opportunity to have your voices heard.
