After all the gloomy posts of the last few days, we have something a little more fun for you!
Our next issue will be our Valentine’s Day Prim Perfect – and we want to feature your stories!
Many people have met their significant other in Second Life – and then gone on to meet and sometimes even marry in First Life. Sometimes people have moved halfway across the globe to achieve this!

Others have met and formed deep relationships in Second Life, even though they accept that they will probably never meet in First Life.
And sometimes couples have travelled to Second Life together, and found new aspects to their relationship together, perhaps finding again something that has been left behind in the busyness of daily life, or perhaps discovering – in the amazing diversity of Second Life – something wholly new, and perhaps not even possible in real life!
Whatever your story, we would like you to share it with us. If you’d like to be part of our special Valentine feature, complete the form below, and one of us will contact you.
So don’t delay – share your story with us – before January 18th – to feature in the February issue of Prim Perfect.

Today’s jigsaw comes from an brilliant post written by Honour Macmillan yesterday on her blog – Honour’s Post Menopausal View (of Second Life). Yesterday she wrote about the griefing problem (There is no Second Amendment in Second Life; Crimes & the Lack of Punishment) that I talked about in my post too.
Yordie Sands and Inara Pey have also written about this too – I do recommend checking them all out.
And as a matter of urgency, contact Linden Lab and ask them to add Terms of Service Violation as a flag on the Marketplace, so that if you find tools designed to crash sims openly on sale on the Marketplace, you can report them. Currently you can only flag for listing violations and infringement of intellectual property rights (or standard sales things such as ‘not as advertised’).
But before you do that, let’s do a jigsaw, a photograph taken in the stunning sim of Rosemist Isle.

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.
