The Hunties are coming!

The Hunties are coming!

The Avi Awards are over and gone – but you still have time to vote for the Hunties!

While hunts are a great way to promote a store or to introduce a new one, a great deal of time, creativity and some lindens go into creating so many of the extraordinary gifts that hunters pick up on their quests. Not to mention the hard work of the organizers – without whom there would be no hunts.

Happy Hunting (the TV show produced by Prim Perfect Publications) and HUNT SL are collaborating to recognize a few of the people who are vital to the hunt community in SL.

Watch the live stream of the Happy Hunting Show on January 10 the 2013 award winners will be announced!

You will find a voting form at the bottom of this post. Just copy everything below and paste into your own notecard. Name it “Huntie Awards Ballot – <<YOUR SL NAME>>.” Cast your vote in all the categories, or just the ones you want, and send your finished ballot to Rosamoo Mendelsohn inworld.

Voting closes at midnight SLT on December 31st.

A wall between Second Life and Gmail

A wall between Second Life and Gmail

Are you a gmail user? Have you seen your messages from Second Life decline over the last few days?

There’s a reason for this – and you need to do something about it – NOW!

It seems that a few weeks ago, Linden Labs was put on the SPAM list for gmail. Because of this, many of your offlines from Second Life may have been going to your spam folder (a peek into the dark recesses of your spam folder will confirm this – and I’ve included instructions below for how to check spam on the web).

If you still wish to see all your offlines – and I know many businesses depend on this for customer service – you may need to set a filter.

How to set a filter

  • Pull up your gmail and go to the little settings *wheel* in the upper right corner.
  • Select SETTINGS from the dropdown list.
  • On the page that opens, click on the FILTERS tab
  • Click on CREATE NEW FILTER. It will bring up a new window.
  • In the FROM box type “@im.agni.lindenlab.com
    (without the quotation marks of course!)
  • Click CREATE FILTER WITH THIS SEARCH
  • Make sure to check the box marked NEVER SEND IT TO SPAM
  • Check the small box at the bottom that says: “Also apply filter to matching conversations.”
  • Finally, click the blue box that says CREATE FILTER

Your filter is now set!

That’s the important one – you can also add a filter for no-reply@lindenlab.com too.

How to see the contents of your Spam folder on the web

If you want make sure all your offlines have been seen you can double check.

  • Slowly lower your mouse down from the INBOX until the MORE option shows.
  • Select MORE
  • Select SPAM
  • You can now see everything in your spam file.

If there is nothing there you care to keep, do not worry about it! gmail deletes all spam after 30 days!

Many thanks to Melody Regent of Regent Estates for this information! Please spread the word as widely as you can!

The new issue of Prim Perfect is here – and packed with season goodies for you to enjoy!

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose… unless, of course, you’re holding a braai in South Africa or a barbie on the beach in Australia. Or glumly contemplating the rain in England…

But don’t worry! Because just a few clicks away in Second Life, you can enter the winter wonderland of your dreams, with snow piled thick and deep and blazing fires in welcoming homes – a time to sparkle at parties, making sure you’re as bright and dazzling as any Christmas tree ornament.

Season Two of The Blackened Mirror continues today, Sunday 15th December, at 2pm PST/SLT, 10pm GMT and 5pm EST.

Biggins and Alais face danger

Biggins and Alais face danger

Quinn and his companions have escaped from the asylum – only to run into the deadly “fishfolk”. They’ve had a fortuitous escape and now have time to catch up an old friend – but danger is never far behind.

Will a familiar refuge provide a safe haven – or just another shock?

Special guest star Peter Jurasik features as Jacob in this episode.

Can Jacob help Quinn and his companions?

Can Jacob help Quinn and his companions?

This animated series, created in a virtual world, brings together elements of film noir, steampunk, classic Lovecraftian horror – and more – in a standalone ten-minute show.

The first season took Quinn from his seedy office in 1930s America to a history that never was, and on to strange worlds as he awoke trouble from his past; trouble that hit him at home, trouble that forced him to face the evils of his youth. Miss Alleyn’s: a strange device known as a Resonator that turns any mirror into a door across dimensions, enabling the possessor to travel wherever they may wish to go, leaving no more than scorched glass to mark their passing.

A time to catch up with old friends?

A time to catch up with old friends?

In season two we discover more of Quinn’s dark past and the origins of his chilling doppelganger, learn what becomes of the friends he left behind in Seraph City and see the price that comes with secret knowledge, leaving one of our heroes with a terrible choice that must be made…

Find out what happens next in Season Two of The Blackened Mirror!

You can see the show on the web on the Treet.TV Blackened Mirror Channel, on The Blackened Mirror channel at Aview TV, on The Blackened Mirror YouTube Channel. It will also be shown live on Metaverse Week in Review!

Will Quinn face his demons?

Will Quinn face his demons?

If you are in Second Life, you can join us to watch and discuss the show at The Crescent Theater in Seraph City, The Designing Worlds studio on Garden of Dreams or at the Prim Perfect Head Offices on Pointe LaRue Isle.

And remember to make sure to keep watching until the very end …

Catching Up

Catching Up

Later today we have the release of the latest episode of The Blackened Mirror: Episode 3 – Catching Up.

But is this just an opportunity for Quinn to catch up with an old friend – or is his past finally catching up with Quinn? And what about the enemies who have pursued them for so long? Could they be catching up too?

Watch today’s episode and find out! But first – here’s a jigsaw to enjoy.
