    By Linden Lab

    Spring is in full swing, and that means the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, and those Glytches are … well glytching! We've scattered special eggs around various Regions throughout Second Life. Your task is to find the eggs, follow the clues inside, and if you make it to the end of the hunt, you’ll earn an exclusive prize! This Spring hunt is only here for a week - so be sure to get hunting by April 24th, 2019 - or this prize will be lost forever. We will get you started w

    Fresh New Linden Homes are Here with New Themes and Larger Options

    By Linden Lab

    New Linden Homes Have Arrived! One of the many benefits of becoming a Premium Second Life member is access to an automatic waiver of the monthly land fees for a Linden Home or 1024m² tier allotment for use towards a parcel on the Mainland. A pretty incredible perk, but it was time to make it even perkier. Let’s be honest - those Linden Homes from 2010 were long overdue for some updates and improvements. It was clear a fresh coat of paint and some new landscaping were just not going to

    By Linden Lab

    It feels like we just packed away all that crystal magic from our 15th anniversary celebration, but our sweet sixteen is just around the corner! This summer, we’re throwing a huge celebration to commemorate 16 years with this incredible community and we wanted to fill you in on just a few of the details. Sixteen years ago, on June 23rd, 2003, Second Life launched to the public. Though it feels like just yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time, this year we couldn’t pass up the opportu

  2. We’re happy to announce some great changes for Estate Managers which rolled out in Tuesday’s Viewer Release.

    This shiny new viewer is a brave foray into improving the state of Estate Access Management! We can’t wait to see what you think about it. Here’s what you’ll find:

    •  New “Access” tab in the Region/Estate floater with subtabs for “Estate Managers”, “Allowed”, “Allowed Groups”, and “Banned”
      • Recording banned date, banned by, and last login for each banned account †
      • Search & Sort within each of the sub-tabs
      • Copy Banlist & Allowed-list
      • Added a confirmation for adding or removing from a list
      • More Estate Managers!
      • We’re upping the number to 15. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility.

    † these features only available going forward.

    Known Issues

    • There is currently an issue where newly added Estate Managers will need to relog in order to view access lists. A fix for this will be arriving in an upcoming server release.

    As always, please file a Jira to tell us about any problems you discover or request additions or feature changes to this functionality.

     

  3. Due to continued changes in the Facebook API, as of today the Second Life viewer will no longer be able to support Facebook Connect for sharing your inworld photos and posts.  We apologize for this inconvenience and will be removing the UI from the viewer shortly. We will, of course, be happy to see your SL posts on Facebook going forward, and you can always say hello and check out what’s happening on our official page: https://www.facebook.com/secondlife

    By Linden Lab,

    The Fairelands are open and this year’s Fantasy Faire is steaming full of Merchants who are donating a portion of their proceeds to the American Cancer Society. Check the vendors to see which items are exclusive for the benefit of the American Cancer Society.

    As is clear in the name, this event is all about Fantasy - from dragons and fairies, to any other majestic creature you can imagine, this is the place to fulfill your flair for the fantastical. Costumes, masks, and other delightful wares line the booths in each gorgeously built and decorated portal.

    You can shop, quest, dance, and frolic across each Region between now and May 5th. 2019

    This week’s Destination video takes a glimpse inside the Fairlands.

    Don your fantasy looks and head on over. Don’t forget that your purchases will benefit the American Cancer Society.

     

     

  5. Happy Monday everyone!  As we posted last month the Web Team has been busy with an array of different project and fixes.  One we’d like to highlight is our effort to clean up Marketplace listings. We’ve had many of you give us feedback on absentee store owners who cannot offer sales support for their products. You also told us there were older products which were still in demand even though the Merchant hasn’t been currently active.  Keeping all this feedback in mind, we had undertaken a cleanup sweep of the marketplace in the past, and had very positive response. Today, we have taken a second one:

    • If the Merchant hasn’t logged in in two years *and* a specific product hasn’t  sold in 1 year, the product will be unlisted.

    • If the Merchant hasn’t logged in in two years *and* the store hasn’t sold anything in 1 year, their store will be disabled.

    • This means that if a product has sold within the past year, that product listing will remain available on the marketplace.  If a store has products, which have sold within the past year, it will remain enabled.

    We are confident that a more relevant selection of products and search results will benefit the shoppers on the Marketplace, as well as active Merchants.  Spring is in the air!

    Hello Residents of Second Life!  

    Over the last few days, Residents using certain email providers may have noticed that they are not receiving all email notifications for events such as Marketplace purchases and Offline Messages.  

    Email has come a long way since it was first introduced to the world in the 1960s. There are many factors that affect the deliver-ability of a message, and algorithms which affect it are constantly being updated.  Sometimes things go awry despite best intentions - such as certain phrases being flagged as indicative of spam, or the volume of messages sent in a certain time frame.

    Second Life is a complex beast and not all our email sending practices are as good as they could be. We are re-examining these practices and we’re going to do better to make sure our Residents are able to get the information they need.

    There are some things you, as the recipient, can also do to better ensure deliver-ability, such as having email filters, white-listing certain contacts, checking your spam folder and marking legitimate messages “Not Spam,” and even contacting your email providers about certain emails.

    If you are experiencing issues receiving emails from us, you may also want to consider updating your email temporarily to a different provider (for example if @yahoo emails are failing, try a @gmail account), verifying your email address with us (offline IMs, friendship offers, auctions, etc all require a verified address), and white-listing (add sender to contacts) Second Life messages to ensure you receive them in the future. It’s always best to use an email account that is only accessible by you.  

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and will provide updates once available.
