New Second Life community platform coming soon


On 17th February Linden Lab announced A Fresh New Community Look is Just Around the Corner!. The next version of the Second Life community platform will have a new look and feel to it. It’s been some time since the Second Life community platform last got updated so it will be great to see the new look when it launches before the end of February 2017.

Read-only mode comes into effect soon

To go from the current platform to the new platform the forums will be put into read-only mode during the export process. During that time everyone will be able to read the forums but they will not be able to publish new posts until the export job has been successfully completed.

Upcoming changes that you know about:

  • Between 21st – 27th February: the forums will go into read-only mode
  • On 27th February: the new Second Life platform goes live and the forums are no longer read-only

First mock preview of the new platform

Here is the first mock preview of the new Second Life community platform which will go live within weeks. This is not the final look however it looks far better than the current look I think

Come hug and dunk some Lindens
At the Isle of View!

On February 14th from 10am-12pm and 2-4pm SLT, join us at the Isle of View for a chance to hug and dunk some Lindens. Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your one and only – when else are you going to get the chance to cozy up to a Linden or send one shrieking into the depths of a dunk tank? An opportunity like this comes around about once a year — so don’t miss out.

Love is a complicated creature — inspiring poetry, prose, songs, and art of all kinds since the beginning of time. Despite her many facets, love still trumps the alternative — and there is no better place to appreciate the beauty of amor than at the Isle of View.

Flowers, fireworks, forested walks, and fleeting moments gazing into the eyes of your loved one while taking a boat ride — it doesn’t get much more romantic than this. There’s also a kiosk to send virtual roses and candy hearts to your Second Life friends and sweethearts. Everyone appreciates a little acknowledgement that you’re thinking of them — so send someone special a valentine!

With music, festivities and love in the air — solo or soulmates — The Isle of View Second Life Mixer is sure to be fun for everyone.

Mark this special valentine’s day event on your calendars and please spread the word.
