InWorldz 6th Birthday Call For Volunteers Announcement 

IW6 – Celebrating 6 Years Of InWorldz! Call for Volunteers

It will be time again to celebrate the anniversary of InWorldz soon and we need all of you to make it as fun, interesting and entertaining as possible.

This year we will be celebrating with entertainment beginning March 28th through April 5th. After that we will have contests and other fun activities available throughout April and May. We will be sending more info on the contests so stay tuned for that information.

We will have our grand Birthday bash party on April 1st.

The areas will include 5 full sims, 8-13 water scenics, 17-20 scenics for builds. though some of the water sims and scenics will be vacant in order to help minimize lag.

We would like to focus on community and team builds this year. While we will accept individual submissions for builds we will give priority to collaborations and teams/communities.

We are still in the planning phase and decided to wait before assigning all the sims until we get your proposals for builds. We do however have a few sims that we have designated.

FULL SIM ASSIGNMENTS
1. Events A will be a Marina/Airport sim – this will be the spot where water vehicles will be rezzed for sailing and boating and other water vehicles. We will also have airplane flights and helicopter rides.
There will also be water sims available for boating, sailing and other water craft activities.

2. Events B will be for small to medium community builds

3. Events C and scenic 10 will be for our “Then and Now Museum along with smaller “Then and Now” Themed builds

4. Scenic 21 will again be our Welcome/Info Hub

5. Events F will be our Main Stage sim where all the entertainment events will be held.

6. Events G will be our merchant sim

All the other sims will be used for your builds, so you guys get together with your favorite team, group or community and come up with some great ideas for building. We would love to see as many groups/communities as possible represented.

BUILDS
We did not want to limit your creativity by mandating a theme however we will have a few themed sims for builds. We chose a theme of “Then and Now”. We will have a museum on one of the sims to represent this theme with items from the past and present. The “Then and Now” theme takes several forms –
1. Then and Now InWorldz – Show a progression of things from the past to present – ie a photo exhibit of prim building to mesh. ie: grid experiences then and now
2. Then and Now Historical – ie: A comparison of two or more historical eras.
3. Then and Now Communities – ie: development of communities
4. Other themes ( you choose the theme of your choice)

Size Builds
Large : 10,000 prims – up to 100m x 100m
Medium : 5,000 prims up to 60m x 60m
Small : 2500 prims up to 40m x 40m
Light : 2000 prims : up to 80m x 80m (on a scenic, so light scripting only)

NOTE – DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSION FORMS IS JAN 22ND 2015.

NOTE – if we receive more proposals than we have space to allot we will prioritize by the order in which submissions are received with first priority given to group/team/community builds

Four years later on InWorldz


On 2nd September 2014 marked my 4th rezday on the grid of InWorldz and I’m really happy to reach this milestone. I have seen a lot of changes around InWorldz since 2010 some good and some awesome ones. InWorldz has grown so much during the past four years in terms of regions, active users and its great to see more events happening.  I have to admit that the InWorldz community and founders are very friendly, caring and active around the grid.

This year InWorldz hit 100, 000 registered users, InWorldz turned five years old and now the third season of Relay For Life of InWorldz has started. Wooot!

Bring on 2015! :)

The good times during the past 4 years in snapshots!
