SLUniverse Moving To A New Site Called VirtualVerse


SLUniverse Is Closing Down Soon

SLUniverse

Cristiano the owner of the well popular SLUniverse has announced it will be closing down in the next few weeks after recent issues. The SLUniverse Forums will become archived (read-only) and could be unavailable for some time after the closure.

SLU has a been a great source for the latest news in recent years for me. It’s sad to see it go but at least it’s still going on a different way. I joined SLU back in 2010 and I have enjoyed being part of this community.

SLUniverse Posts Milestones 

Cristiano mentions the following about the closure and the new site going forward…

So a lot has happened in the past 24 hours. I nearly lost 2.4 million posts and obliterated SLU, got them back, perhaps may have cried a little, then made some decisions about what to do about SLU.

I detailed what I was going through my mind in¬†this post, so I won’t repeat it. However, since writing that, I made some rapid decisions that are already in motion.

First of all, I am launching a new site –¬†VirtualVerse, which expands the scope of SLU to all things related to virtual worlds, whether it is Second Life, Sansar, other VR worlds that are gaining in popularity, or game related worlds like MMOs and open world games. I’ve wanted to become less SL centric, but it has been hard to do that with SL as part of the name.

The SLU forums will be closing within the next few weeks, depending on how long the transition takes. These forums will be archived – they may be unavailable for little while but will come back as a read only forum.

The new site domain is VirtualVerse.one –¬†http://www.virtualverse.one

VirtualVerse 

The good news is that SLUniverse is still going to live on but just in a different format on a new site called VirtualVerse which still includes all things Second Life, Sansar, Virtual Worlds and VR etc.

The new forums will be using Xenforo forum software and not the existing vBulletin forum software. It fully supports mobiles which is great. The forums have a light and dark theme to pick from at the moment.

VirtualVerse
