Last week I said I would offer an update about the uplift process of the Destination Guide every Friday. As of about 5 minutes ago, the process is complete and we finally have access! We are slowly updating the entries now. Since we haven’t had access to it for almost a month, we have quite the backlog and it will take some time to catch up. Hopefully, by next Friday I will have a long list of new destinations for you to explore. 

In the meantime, check out these interesting events that are happening this weekend. 

The Second Life Endowment for the Arts is having its 1st Annual Celebration of the Arts Grand Opening this weekend. The festivities start at 1pm PT on Saturday and will continue past 7pm PT on Sunday. Check the full schedule on their blog

Don’t forget to watch today’s Lab Gab, where we had the Coordinator of SLEA, Tansee, take us on a tour of the regions.
 

 

Janus Gallery welcomes a new art exhibit by Asperix Asp with a party starting on Saturday, January 23rd from 12pm-2pm PT. Click over to their blog for all the details.
 

 

The Science Circle is having a fireside chat at their region in Second Life on Saturday, January 23rd from 10am to 11am PT.

You can find even more Resident-run events to attend this weekend on our Second Life Events page!

Please note that the web submission form for the Destination Guide is still giving errors. While that’s being sorted, please continue to send your submissions and updates to editor@lindenlab.com and we can process them manually for you. Thank you!

 

Have a fun weekend and remember, stay safe, stay home, stay virtual!

On December 22nd I announced that the Second Life Destination Guide was being uplifted to the cloud. That process is still underway, however, we have run into some errors. For this reason, the web publishing tool that allows us to update the Destination Guide is still unavailable and will be for the foreseeable future until these errors can be corrected. I am hoping it won’t be much longer than another week or two. I will continue to update you on this status every Friday. 

The submission form for the Destination Guide is also giving errors because of this, so please continue to email your submissions to editor@lindenlab.com and we will add them as soon as we have access again.

In the meantime, you can still find many destinations to explore on the Destination Guide, as well as events to attend on our Events page.

One very exciting event occurring this weekend is at the ACS region. The American Cancer Society is celebrating an important milestone - $4 million USD raised in Second Life to help fight cancer! The party, which features live music and many guest speakers, will be held Sunday, January 17th from 10am to 1pm PT.

 

If you're looking for more places to explore, here are some destination listings for a few of my favorite places on the grid:

On Friday afternoons I usually do my Highlights from the Destination Guide blog post where I share some of the latest interesting destinations from that week. However, the tool we use to update the Destination Guide is still in the process of being uplifted, read the details here. It is one of the final updates left for uplift and we are hoping it should be done by the end of next week. 

Since I haven’t been able to add anything to the Destination Guide, I thought I would share some Art events that you can attend this weekend in Second Life.

 

The Art of Lash VV will be revealed at The Janus Gallery with a party that starts on Saturday, January 9th from 12pm to 2pm PT. Read the details on their blog.

 

Kultivate Magazine presents their January Exhibition Opening at their Windlight Art Gallery on Sunday, January 10th, from 1 to 2pm PT. Read the details on their blog.

 

Don’t forget, SLEA had its big opening on New Year’s Eve! Click over for our Destinations video this week, which was all about the SLEA!

 

You can find even more Resident-run events to attend this weekend on our Second Life Events page!

Have a fun weekend and remember, stay safe, stay home, stay virtual!

One of my most favorite part of my job description is updating the Second Life Destination Guide. I discover beautiful new locations to explore, all created by you, the Residents! We know how beloved it is to our Residents as well, that’s why we wanted you to be aware of a temporary freeze on new additions to the Destination Guide over the next few days and possibly until early in January.

Why? As part of our overall migration to the cloud, some of our web publishing tools (including what we use internally to update the Destination Guide) may be unavailable for our internal editorial team. 

The good news is that the web version of the Destination Guide will still be accessible to everyone, and so will the Destinations floater that you can find on the toolbar in your Second Life viewer.
Destinations Floater.jpg

We just won’t be able to add, update, or delete any entries during the uplift process. If you want to submit or update an entry, please email the information to editor@lindenlab.com and we will get that done as soon as we have access to the tool again.

We apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime, discover the beauty of the season by exploring the winter category, which now showcases over 100 snowy destinations to explore!
