On Monday 29th March Linden Lab officially opened up the SL18B volunteer applications which will remain open until Thursday 29th May 2021. For anyone that has not volunteered before at previous Second Life birthday events then I highly recommend doing it. Applications for SL18B Performers, Merchants and more will be opening very soon.
The upcoming Second Life 18th annual birthday celebration (SL18B) will be held on 17th June to 1st July 2021. Roughly 80 days away now.
It’s worth pointing out that SL18B volunteers will have to attend pre-birthday training sessions (at least one) and must be completed. SL18B volunteers are expected to commit to at least two hour shifts during the SL18B birthday celebrations. Volunteers don’t get paid during this event.
Here is the full blog announcement below…

We’re looking for volunteers to help people celebrate at the upcoming 18th annual Second Life birthday celebration (SL18B), held June 17th to July 1st, 2021. We are seeking Residents with great people skills and a love and excitement for Second Life to help us make SL18B a huge success!

On Friday 5th March 2021 Linden Lab announced some good news about the upcoming SL18B Music Fest which will be held Thursday 17th June until Saturday 19th June. The SL18B Music Fest will kick off the SL18B celebrations with three exciting days of live music performances. This year marks it’s 7th year annual event.
I can’t believe Second Life will turn 18 in three months time. I guess Second Life has reached almost adulthood. So much has changed over the years since the public opening of Second Life back in June 2003 (beta times). Second Life is still alive and will hopefully be around for many more decades to come.
Linden Lab have opened the signup process for auditions for SL18B Music Fest. Applications will remain open until 28th March 2021. If you are a music performer in Second Life then this is a great opportunity to participate. The lab will review all submissions and follow up on audition invitations via a note card inworld.
More details will be revealed soon for SL18B including how to participate as an Volunteer, Exhibitor, Merchant, Performer and more.
This weekend is the last opportunity to visit the SL17B regions in Second Life before they all go offline very soon. The Linden homes preview region is still open at SL17B showing the new Stilt homes. The actual release of these new homes will available hopefully in the next few months or so.
Please spread the word one last time and explore the SL17B regions if you have time this weekend. To all those that made SL17B possible and run smoothly thanks so much.
Today Patch Linden posted a further update on the new Linden Home themes upcoming on the Second Life Forums. Read more here.
Firstly he points out there are 4 floor plans to the new Stilt home theme. There will be two placement options on the home selection page soon. Patch says don’t abandon your homes.
Here is the schedule for the upcoming new Linden Home themes 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Here is the full update posted by Patch Linden…
As has been mentioned, do not abandon your homes. A quick clarification on styles and such. There are 4 floor plans to the Stilt Home theme. There will be two placement options offered on the home selection page of the site. One of the selections will find the house placed where there are stairs are anchored to land, so those houses will be either the over land or maybe partially over the water for home placement. The other option offered will be for a home fully over water (no entry stairs). This is how you’ll be able to choose witch type of placement you could select.
In general, the Stilt Homes while they are basically done and ready for deployment, we unfortunately do not have the region capacity to release them right now. We are aiming at after the AWS project completes when region capacity becomes available to us sometime later this year. In the mean time, we’re already working on the next 3 themes after it. Theme 7 is nearly content complete, but not set-up for deployment yet. Then the following themes (8 and 9) are getting ready to enter content production.
Loads of new Linden Home themes to look forward to now. Hopefully by the end of the year themes 6, 7 and possibly 8 may be released.
At 9am SLT today the SL17B regions opened up to the in-world Second Life Birthday group. There was a fair amount of Moles and Lindens at the SL17B Welcome Area welcoming everyone through the gates. The best way to explore the birthday regions is through the SL17B map boards and the SL17B Pods system.
+ The LH Demo Area is not available yet – more details will be announced soon
The lag so far seems to be low but it will probably increase over the weekend then balance out in the weeks ahead.
