New Second Life Community Platform Officially Launches


On Tuesday 14th March Linden Lab officially launched the all new Second Life community platform to the world. At first glance the new community platform looks really nice with a whole new page layout with the main pages along the top.¬†It’s now easier to view the forums, knowledge base, blogs, answers and to keep track of all activity.

Here is what the new Second Life community platform looks like now. Take a look today and spread the word. ūüôā

Forums

Blogs

Knowledge Base

Answers

All Activity

Revamped Profile Section

The profile section in the top right has been revamped with a whole new drop down layout where you can find profile settings, manage followed content, account settings, ignored users and sign out

.

Create Topics in the Forums

There is now a new +Create option to add new topics in the Second Life forums in a matter of seconds. Notifications and Inbox icons have been added to the top right to keep track of the latest activities.

New Search Box

There is now a new search box (with advanced search) where you can find out everything within the Second Life community platform. You can either search all the content, blog entries, knowledge base articles or by members.

Advanced search

You can search by the content type, date created, last updated and much more here.

These are still early days for the new launched Second Life community platform and work is still in progress to make it even better in the weeks ahead. So far I like the new updated version of the community platform and I believe in time this will will improve the Second Life experience for everyone.

Do you like the new Second Life community platform or do you prefer the old version layouts instead ?

SL Community Platform Update: The Knowledge Base Goes Live


First preview of the revamped Knowledge Base

Late last month Linden Lab announced the start of revamp of the Second Life community pages including the forums, blogs, answers, knowledge base etc. On Friday 10th March the lab made a small announcement saying “Currently, we have turned on the Knowledge Base. Blogs and Forums will come soon – but for now those areas are still under construction. We will update as those become available“.

It’s good to see the Knowledge Base is back up and running again because it’s been offline since late last month. I would imagine next week the lab will switch on the blogs and forums etc hopefully.

The home page of the Second Life community platform now looks like this as of Sunday 12th March 2017.

Stay tuned for further updates soon.

New Sansar video released by Linden Lab


On 7th March Linden Lab released a brand new video of Sansar showing what can be done in the new world. The video includes some amazing visuals. rendered movements and a brief look at the user interface. The video runs for 1 minute and 56 seconds. The video has already been viewed more than 10, 000 times on YouTube since yesterday.

There is a glimpse of places to explore, the Sansar store (marketplace), the realistic avatars you can use and the tools available to create personal experiences. The graphics look really nice and I think it’s going to impress people who are used to Second Life graphics.

The¬†narrator says that¬†Sansar is revolutionary and it’s unlike anything the world has ever seen before.¬†Sansar will take VR to the next level and Sansar will have live events,¬†entertainment, education uses and much more.

Currently Sansar is in an invite-only creator preview phrase and its planned to go into the Open Beta phrase in Spring 2017.
