Recently Linden Lab have updated the Second Life Marketplace logo with the new blue Second Life web pages on it. Everyone should now be able to view the new blue logo and for those that still see the old logo it will update soon. It looks much better now compared with the old logo.

As many know already Linden Lab have rolling out the new blue Second Life logo to Second Life web pages since it was launched back in May 2020. The Second Life Wiki page still has the old Second Life logo on it and so does the Second Life web login page along with many other related web pages.

It’s going to take some more time for the new logo to roll out as the lab are working on a number of projects behind the scenes.

Second Life Mobile App For iOS Not Ready Yet


During this week’s Second Life web user group meeting Keira Linden said (+4 minutes) that the Second Life mobile app hasn’t gone to the app store just yet for approval because the lab are still working on it. The lab are now spending their attention on Second Life 18th birthday celebrations which will open in two weeks time. Apparently there will be new last names announced soon and some of them will be referencing to this year’s birthday theme which will be time limited editions.

The web team at the lab have been working on the following during the past month…

  • Upgrading internal tools work including the payments system
  • Cleanup of the cookie footer on the Second Life webpage
  • There was a issue with buying Linden Dollars using non-us currency – fixed pretty quick
  • Fixed the issue with quick fill on the Second Life marketplace
  • Added the updated the Second Life logo on more pages
  • Minor text cleanup and fixed some formatting errors
  • Added some fixes for control panel on the old Linden Homes
  • Most of the past month the web team has been in the new work flow process on getting projects done including the backend systems

After 5 minutes the Keira opened the floor to questions. Some general interesting points mentioned after this point…

  • New categories are coming within the next three months or so for the Second Life Marketplace
  • Second Life JIRA is the best place to report bugs, ideas and feature requests for Second Life (the lab look at this every week)
  • Skill Gaming user group is in the works
  • No updates on Premium Plus yet > the lab are still thinking about it > revisiting it in the next few months
  • Meet the Lindens series to be confirmed for SL18B
  • Grid scope experiences – the lab are still thinking about it
  • Large scripts – not on the radar yet
  • Some further fine tuning still do for AWS

Coronavirus items on the Second Life Marketplace


Today the coronavirus outbreak has turned into a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Everyone is talking about this virus and its alarming how fast its spreading around the world.

The NHS said the symptoms of Coronavirus also known as COVID-19 include a cough, high fever and shortness of breath.

On the Second Life Marketplace there are three pages of Coronavirus items including a mask, survival bag, clothing, toilet paper and more. To be honest on this occasion the lab should take these items off the Second Life Marketplace as this should be left in real life.

Its unclear if the Coronavirus will have any impact with Second Life in the weeks and months ahead in terms of more active users or in world events etc. Its serious and everyone should be preparing.

I’m in the south west part of the UK and yes there have been cases in the county area. My local town has not been affected so far. I’ll blog if this changes.

As of today 8 people have died in the UK. 460 people have tested positive in the UK. Sadly there will be more cases and deaths before it gets better.

Be safe and hope for the best.
