Meet Rosamoo and Xia

Hunting is a major area of Second Life – combining socialising, gaming and shopping – all three core activities in Second Life!  Rosamoo and Xia will talk about running their impressive hunt blog, about hunts and hunting in Second Life, and perhaps they’ll even have a few tips to share!

Remember SL9B

Remember SL9B

Today is the last day to vote for the Avatar Choice Awards – and there’s one in particular that I want to draw your attention to – in the favourite event category.

It’s one I had the honour and pleasure of being involved in … but, actually, so did you.

Maybe you sponsored a sim.  Maybe you volunteered to help out – and worked your virtual butt off.  Maybe you created one of the vast stupendous stages. Maybe you built something really terrific that everyone loved. Maybe you built something that was very special to you.  Maybe you blogged or filmed or generally cheered it on.

Or maybe you came along and wandered from plot to plot going, “Wow! This is AWESOME!”

Because “this” was SL9B, and we made it happen.

Back in the dark days of April, when the Lab said that it was up to the Residents to organise their own birthday celebrations, it seemed a huge task. I wrote about it (a prescient blog post, as it turned out) – but I’m not sure that I actually expected anything would happen.  Then there was a month of maybe it will/maybe it won’t with the LEA, before the Lab backed away (and rightly so; the LEA was not the group to organise a large scale community event).  But by then it was May; the Birthday was only six weeks away.  No land.  No builds. Just a bunch of people who wanted it to happen, and some amazing sponsors who were willing to back them: Dreamseeker Estates, Fruit Islands, KittyCatS and an anonymous donor.  Then suddenly it was twenty sims – and six weeks to pull together the biggest community party on the grid.

Now SL9B is nominated for an Avie and, in one way, I would love to see it win.  But, in another way … it doesn’t matter.

We already won. We had SL9B.

Don’t forget to go and vote for the Avies, whatever your favourite is – today is your last chance as voting closes at 8pm SLT.

Now – let’s do a jigsaw!

Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).

If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.

Now available on the web – our seasonal New Babbage show!

There’s a coal shortage in snow-covered New Babbage, as Saffia and Elrik pay one of their periodic visits to the steampunk city. But they’re just visiting some of the libraries there … what could possibly go wong?

An unexpected encounter in New Babbage

An unexpected encounter in New Babbage

Before long, Saffia and Elrik, aided by the Assistant Maceholder Victor Mornington and Librarian Bookworm Heinrichs – accompanied, of course, by a hapless Mr Biggins – are dragged into an adventure involving stolen books, seasonal curses and a highly dangerous book, fit to be mentioned in the same breath as the Necronomicon and the Book of Al Azarine …
