SL10B Community Celebration logo

It’s that time of year when we celebrate the anniversary of Second Life – and this year, the tenth anniversary of the founding of Second Life, will be very special.

 This year we will have 20 sims for builds and stages and fun and freebies, and we invite you to be part of the festivities.

 The theme of the event will be: Looking Forward, Looking Back.

 Some key dates for your calendar:
April 15            Volunteer/Performer, Exhibitor Applications open
May 20             Volunteer/Performer, Exhibitor Applications close
May 27              Sims open to builders
June 16            Grand Opening

June 23            Official Birthday day
June 23            Final day of performances
June 29            Sims close to the public
July 1                All builds to be dismantled – sims go offline

Many of your classic favourites will be back.  There will be a cake. There will be a main stage, and other stage venues. There will be gifts to take away – which may well include a (non-Linden) souvenir bear.  There will be an auditorium for talks and presentations. And finally, there will be a time capsule into which you can put your past year’s best creations.

How can I be part of this?
You can volunteer to create your own celebratory plot, as Exhibitors are invited to show off their community and its special nature to others.

 You might prefer to join the team of Hosts welcoming all the visitors and handing out gifts, helping find locations, mentoring any newcomers who might need extra help and making the party happen.

 Maybe you’d rather join the rock concert atmosphere and be a Stage Manager or you are a DJ or Live Performer and would like to share your talent from one of our stages. Or perhaps you want to share your passion and knowledge as a Presenter through a lecture or roundtable discussion in our Auditorium.

 Others of you might be interested in Security or Public Relations. We’re looking for your energetic participation in all of these roles.

 You are invited to sign up for one or more of these areas (yes, you can volunteer for everything if you like). Orientation and Training will be provided for many of the roles. Expect that some time will be required prior to the event for that purpose.

How can I stay informed?

SL9B Cake stage

SL9B was a blast … and today’s jigsaw looks back to remember that week long party – it was great fun, wasn’t it?

The picture, by the way, is taken from KT Syakumi’s video of the cake stage exploding – which you can see here.

Why look back today?

Well, from today on, we’ll be looking forward …

As you’ll find out soon.

In the mean-time, enjoy the 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.
