SLUniverse 10th anniversary

The well-known SLUniverse hit a big milestone this week on 12th November 2013 on reaching its 10th birthday anniversary which is incredible. Wow, ten years full of SL changes, drama, news and today it’s still growing strong.

There have been many good and bad stories posted over the years. It’s a great source to find out what’s going on in Second Life on a daily basis. It’s a large Second Life resident supported site and I’m sure in the near future it will continue to break new records.

SLUniverse is my top favourite site to find out the latest news in SL, OpenSim and RL. I joined SLUniverse back on 01-02-2010 and I log in almost every other day to see what’s going on. Here are some stats worth viewing below…

I love visiting SLUniverse on a daily basis to see what’s trending for Second Life, virtual worlds and real life news. I joined SLUniverse back on 01-02-2010. I know it’s a favourite with my friends and other SL community users. A big thank you to Cristiano for SLU and all that you do to keep it running. :)

I always manage to miss it by one day, but 9 years ago on November 12, 2003 I started SLU. 9 years later, through a lot of changes, turmoil, drama and lolcats, it is still going strong. 

While I keep trying to sell the site to Mercedes or a Chinese automatic chicken conglomerate, it seems I am stuck with you all for awhile yet. And by stuck, I mean I am thrilled by this community. You make me laugh, you make me crazy, you occasionally make me consider restraining orders and also how one can buy a drone, but mainly you make me incredibly happy. I love this crazy liberal pinko commie socialist omnisexual hive collective. 


I hope all of you are still around for the 10th anniversary, and I look forward to seeing what new people become a part of SLU in the year to come. 

Again, thank you. 

Happy 9th Birthday SLUniverse!

Official SL Forums posts declining further in 2012

Today a new graph has been published showing the official Second Life Forum post counts to date, showing data between February 2011 to October 2012. The graph shows SL Forum and SL Answer posts declining more in 2012 under the average mark starting in May 2012 and dropping further during the summer months. It’s going to be interesting to see if the trend continues to go down during the final 3 months of 2012 or if the post count goes up to average levels in 2013.

Last year post counts stayed mostly above the average mark and then in 2012 for some reason the post counts dropped down hill.

Happy 8th Birthday SLUniverse

Cristiano announced yesterday that SLUniverse is now 8 years old on 12th November 2011 which is awesome. SLU is one of my favourite sites to find out what’s currently happening in the Second Life community and I log in almost every day. Thank you Cristiano for the amazing work that you do!

This site was launched on November 12, 2003. It has grown and changed tremendously since then, but it has always been about the community of people here. Thank you so much to everyone who has been a part of the site over these 8 years, through the many changes, the craziness, the good and bad. I can’t believe I have dedicated 8 years of my life to this site, but in the end it has been worth it. SLU is the busiest it has ever been, and continues to grow. I look forward to what the future holds.

Cristiano announces some interesting SLUniverse stats in the 8th birthday post. Yay!!!!

Thank you for everything you have all contributed to the site, including 1.4 million posts in 4 years, and nearly 500,000 images and over 120 million images viewed on Snapzilla in 6 years. SLU is here because of you.

Linden Lab Working On "New Promotional Program"

When browsing through the SLUniverse Forums today I came across this thread called Lindens will be advertising on behalf of merchants. It seems like Linden Lab are currently working on a new promotional program that will focus on increasing customers for the SL Marketplace.

Here are some details of the new program..

We’ve recently been working on a new promotional program focused in part on increasing customers for the Marketplace. Right now our plan is to roll out a test of the program in early April. While a more thorough explanation will follow soon, here’s a quick overview to give you a little context, before we ask a favor of you.

In essence, the program will allow participating merchants to create a new discounted listing for shoppers looking for a good deal. Using a “flash sale” model, a single Marketplace item will be promoted at a deep discount for a limited time (24 hours or less); giving shoppers access to great deals on popular virtual goods and merchants a powerful new way to reach customers. Linden Lab will promote these deals via direct email, Facebook, and Twitter. During the test period, Linden Lab will select one listing per week to promote at a discount of 50% or more. Details on how merchants will be selected to participate in this test program will be announced via a blog post soon.

We can expect a test launch of the program next month with more details published in the coming weeks on the Official Second Life Blog.
