Apparently volunteers, exhibits, performance and greeting info will be posted shortly with key dates for SL12B. The SL12B regions have already arrived and it’s not known what the theme will be this year. Also it’s not known yet whether or not Linden Lab will support SL12B. Since SL9B (2012) it’s been resident supported and it’s worked rather well over the years.
Stay tuned for more updates on SL12B in the days and weeks ahead. Yay! :)
In a few months time Second Life will be celebrating it’s 12th birthday celebrations and this week the SL12B regions have arrived on the grid. There have been no announcements yet on the planning details / key dates for SL12B.
I would imagine there will be some news about this very soon. Stay tuned and I’ll blog more when I hear more. :)
What would you like to see happen at SL12B this year ? Theme ideas for SL12B ?
OSGrid will be celebrating its 7th birthday this weekend over at the OSG7B regions with live DJ performances and much more. The OSG7B birthday celebrations start this morning from 10am PDT through until Sunday afternoon. The events will be held on the Event Plaza region on OSgrid too.
Everyone is welcome to attend to celebrate 7 amazing years of OSGrid. Come and enjoy the birthday celebrations!
Today is the last day for public viewing for the SL11B regions before the sims go offline next week. The breakdown of the sims will start from Sunday 6th July 2014 until mid next week. I decided to take one last trip to the sims this morning to take some snapshots of some interesting SL11B exhibits for the final time. See my SL11B blog coverage here and my SL11B snapshots.
For those that are interested in staying updated on future Second Life birthdays, join the new group called SLB Community Celebration. This group will be the new place for all SLB info and announcements. SL11B was a huge success from start to end with good coverage this year. The SL12B countdown has now started and planning for that will start in early 2015.

What are your thoughts on SL11B and what would you like to see happen for SL12B ?
Today is the last day for live performances at the SL11B Community Celebration and the 11 sims will remain open for viewing until Saturday 5th July 2014. There will be no performances during next week but this is the ideal time to explore the sims before they go offline. If you missed any of the SL11B talks during week 1, please check out the videos here of them all.
Well done to all the SL11B staff, volunteers, performers, builders and everyone else who made this year a huge success. I guess the countdown has now started for SL12B which will be held in mid-late June 2015. It will be bigger with more surprises i’m sure. What improvements/ideas would you like to see happen for SL12B ?
One of the main attractions at SL11B community celebration is the exciting Pod Tours which guides you through all of the exhibits and gives you information about them. Yavanna Llanfair designed the two Pod Tours at SL11B and this year there are surprises along the way depending on the environment. The SL11B sims are truly awesome and I have to say that the pod tour is a good way to see everything.
There are 22 free pods with departures every 4 minutes at each station. The pod tour system is split into two separate areas which include the Western Sims and Eastern Sims. The Western sims pod tour lasts for around 38 minutes and the Eastern sims pod tour lasts for around 45 minutes so please keep that in mind. To ride a pod, click the cone at either one of the SL11B Pod Stations and enjoy the fantastic tour! :)
Firstly behind the pod stations there is a SL11B info package to grab for free giving you all the information you need including landmarks, maps, hunts and performances.
Grab a free SL11B Cake and a free SL11B Teddy Bear here

Now sit back and enjoy the ride through the incredible builds at SL11B Community Celebration. This is a great time to take photos or videos during the pod tours at the SL11B regions. There is so much to see and take in this year.
