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.

New look Second Life Community main page

Stay tuned for further updates soon.
