On Friday 19th October Linden Lab announced that Grumpity Linden, Oz Linden and Patch Linden will be participating in the next Town Hall meeting starting at 10am through until 11am SLT on Thursday 15th November 2018 in Second Life.

The actual location of the Town Hall meeting will be announced very soon. If you have any questions, you can submit them here.

Here is the full announcement…

There are a lot of people working behind the scenes on Second Life, creating new features, improving performance, keeping things running smoothly, and performing incredible feats of troubleshooting and resolving issues when it doesn’t. 

That is why we have invited Grumpity Linden (Director of Product), Oz Linden ( Senior Director or Engineering) and Patch Linden ( Senior Director or Product Operations) to participate in our next Town Hall – taking place November 15th from 10 to 11 am SLT.

Collectively, these three have over 28 (!) years of experience working on Second Life and work closely with all the Second Life teams to continue to improve this platform that we’ve all come to love.

They are some of the biggest stakeholders in the direction of the product development roadmap each year, and know the product inside and out!

If you have a question that you would like to ask these Lindens, please take a moment to post it in the Community Forum thread “Town Hall Meeting with Grumpity, Oz, and Patch Linden – November 15” in advance of the Town Hall. Questions will be selected from all submissions made prior to November 9th, so be sure to get your question in before then!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for November 15 to see if your question is selected. On that day, you can join us live for the Town Hall meeting. Location will be publicized closer to the event – stay tuned!

We’ll see you inworld soon!

Please spread the word about this Town Hall meeting happening next month.

New Changed Dates For Relay For Life Of Second Life 2019 Season


After some brainstorming sessions and discussions it’s been officially decided by the Relay For Life of Second Life organisers that Relay Weekend will be moved a month earlier going forward.

The 2019 season will last for 16 weeks and it will be very different compared with previous years. The Relay For Life of Second Life 2019 season will now kick off at 10am SLT on Saturday 16th February 2019 and the annual Relay Weekend will be on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 2019.

This is the first time in Relay For Life of Second Life history that the event will be held in June instead of July. The economic metrics say that having the relay season earlier means more residents will be active and will be logged in.

Both Relay Weekend and the Second Life birthday will now take place in June which means it’s going to be a rather busy month.
