SL19B applications Opening Soon


On Monday 14th March 2022 Mischievous Mole posted this group notice to the Second Life Birthday group inworld (8, 537 members) announcing that the lab are about to open up applications for SL19B (Second Life 19th Birthday). Mischievous Mole says it’s worth keeping eyes on the official Second Life blog in the next few weeks for more information including ways to get involved with the birthday celebrations.

Group Notice

Hello everyone!

I suspect people are starting to wonder what’s up with this year’s Birthday celebrations. Squeaky and I are deep in the planning stage and just about ready to open up applications. Watch the blog for information coming in the next few weeks for all the opportunities to get involved this year!

SL19B Dates

I have already blogged about the SL19B dates here.

On the Second Life public calendar if you fast forward to June 2022 the dates for SL19B have already been officially confirmed. It appears that for the 2022 Second Life 19th birthday celebrations will take place from Thursday 16th June to Tuesday 5th July 2022.

SLB Regions

The “SLB” regions are still on the grid from last year it appears and they are closed for public access until June 2022. In the south east nearby there are four SLB Planning regions that are new which is interesting. I will be watching this area closely over the next few months or so.

Ideas

It would be great to see the return of meet the Lindens series and maybe have three weeks of birthday events and more regions this year. It would be good to see more press coverage about it around the world. I think having a planning SL19B and SL20B planning group would be most useful just like the weekly user group office hours.

I am looking forward to SL19B as it’s one of the biggest events of the year in Second Life and I’m sure it will be succesful once again. Next year for SL20B it will be a huge and I am looking forward to that.

SL18B Ends Next Week


This year’s SL18B celebrations will end next week on Tuesday 6th July 2021 when shortly afterwards the SLB regions will go offline for another year. This is a great opportunity for everyone to revisit the exhibitions and explore while the regions are quieter. The live events at SL18B ended on Sunday 27th June 2021.

This year has been very successful for the birthday bash from the music fest, meet the linden talks along with all the live performance events. The preview of the new Fantasy Linden homes theme region has pretty popular during the past few weeks. Hopefully for next year at SL19B and then for the big SL20B celebration it will be amazing once again.

The SL18B Shop & Hop event is still open until 6th July 2021 featuring 320 merchants across 16 regions. There are deals, discounts, new gifts and exclusive items around the shops over there. This is a huge shopping event featuring well know brands from across the grid.

See here for the SL18B Shop & Hop landmarks.
