One of the most popular categories in the Second Life Destination Guide is our listing of Photogenic Spots that highlight beautiful spaces to snap and share with friends. Among our current favorites is Missing Melody, a delightful seaside retreat that features a quaint main square lined with colorful houses and plenty of places to relax.

This picture-perfect spot has already caught the attention of the Second Life community with a flattering post from VIRTUALITY including a three-minute fly-through video and an active Flickr group.

This week’s Destinations video takes a quick peek at Missing Melody - but we encourage you to login and check it out yourself.

Just two weeks ago, rain clung like jewels to the barren tree branches in my yard, but today those branches are decorated with delicate peach blossoms and the mourning doves have begun to search for the best places to build their nests. It’s impossible to deny the steady march of Spring, as the days warm ever-so-slightly, and the bees begin to busy themselves with their bee work. 

After you go all Marie Kondo and Spring clean, you may be in search of a few new things that “spark joy” to add to your inventory. 

Bloom is an event that celebrates the magic of Spring - from butterflies to sprites, to the pastels that match the colors of Easter eggs, this grove is full of nature-inspired things that capture the blue sky vibes of the season. With over 100 Merchants sharing their seasonal goods, and grove for those who appreciate the whimsy of a gacha event - there is bound to be something that will infuse your Second Life with a little bee-auty!

For a slice of the Bloom life - you can watch the short Destination video below, then head over to the event before it ends on April 7th!

It is clearly Spring outside the office windows here at Linden Lab. Blue skies, crisp air and sunny sidewalks, and everyone seems to have a bounce in their step that indicates the shedding of winter memories and the excitement of a new season upon us.

While it can be Spring eternal  in virtual life — there’s no doubt that Residents love to do it up in full festive glory. Egg hunts and pretty pastels are around every corner, and the sweaters and coats of last week are replaced with tank tops and cardigans.

Our Destination Guide knows just where the latest adventures await in Second Life. So swap out those boots for an open-toe shoe and hit the grid with a bounce like you mean it!

If your Second Life creation is missing from the Destination Guide, drop us a note at editor@lindenlab.com  or submit your spot via form. 

Don’t forget to take loads of pics and share them on our official Second Life Flickr. We select “Pic of the Day” from that group.

Now — let’s jump down that rabbit hole and see what awaits!

October continues to be a busy time in Second Life as several new seasonal events and Halloween-themed spots continue to pop up across the grid.

One of the biggest highlights this month is BURN2, which is an inworld extension of the popular Burning Man festival and community. The theme for this round is “Radical Ritual.”

Another highlight is the unusual art experience “Floating” by acclaimed artists Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost. This unexpected collaboration has an interesting backstory that you can read about on Bryn Oh’s blog.

October wouldn’t be complete without dozens of new haunted attractions -- and there is no shortage of new spooky spots debuting in the Destination Guide this month. The Haunted category now hosts over 100 unique spots, including MadPea’s Halloween Ghost Hunt and Pulse Games’ Birthright.

Before you explore, don’t forget to pick up your free trick-or-treat bag at Portal Park, too!

Here are some new spots we recommend:

Over the past 15 years, thousands of students have logged into Second Life to extend their education beyond the classroom and into the virtual world. While Second Life continues to expand with new features and enhancements, many virtual world education offerings are also evolving to include more engaging and exciting lessons bringing students from different locations together in fun, shared learning environments.

This evolution of virtual world education is the subject of the latest edition of “The Drax Files,” which returns after a brief hiatus with a new super-sized episode that spotlights the latest edtech work of Chant Newall Development Group, LLC (CNDG).

TDF CNDG Bill at FU STEM conference2.png

Pictured: CNDG CEO William Prensky meets with Pearson’s Dolly Womack and another attendee at a recent STEM Conference. 

For over a decade, CNDG has worked closely with Florida State University and the University of Central Florida on exciting Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) that cover multiple disciplines including biology, chemistry, economics and environmental science. These efforts have been developed in partnership with education giant Pearson to create the “textbook of the future” using unique virtual world learning modules that include compelling social 3D virtual experiences and games.

“What differentiates what we do from many other iterations of distance learning is that we are virtual worlds learning,” says CNDG CEO William (Bill) Prensky. “Students begin to sense that they are present to each other.”

He adds, “The sense of presence in the environment is real. The live networked interaction between teaching assistants and students is vital to maintaining that sense of presence. So, it creates a community of teachers as well as a community of learners. It empowers them and it energizes them.”

You can see some of CNDG’s work and hear from its executives and university faculty in the latest episode of “The Drax Files” below.

Want to check out an example of CNDG’s work for yourself?  For a limited time, CNDG has opened up a free preview of its “Ice Core” module in Second Life (as featured in “The Drax Files” video). In this exclusive experience, which was developed for an environmental science course taught by Professor William Landing at Florida State University, participants take a helicopter to a drill site to begin an exciting scientific expedition in Antarctica. Adventurers will learn how scientists live and work in this frigid environment as they collect and analyze ice cores that provide clues into Earth's climate history.

Art is such a large part of lives. We find inspiration everywhere we look in the world, and inworld both. It can be two-dimensional or three-dimensional, composed with words, colors, paints, sculptures, multimedia, and pretty much anything you can think of!

The Raglan Shire has been celebrating Second Life art and artists for the last 14 years - and this year brings the 14th Artwalk to life across all of the Raglan Shire Regions. From now until June 16th, you can visit and explore all of the amazing artwork that has been curated and displayed in the great and virtual outdoors.

With 150 artists displaying artwork that spans from photography, paintings and sculptures, to music and poetry - you will find hours of entertainment and are bound to find some art that you’ll want to take back to your virtual homes.

For more information on the event, you can visit their webpage.

What’s that? Residents can auction their parcels? Wow!

Last July we shared the news that Auctions had received a makeover.  Today we are pleased to announce the launch of Resident to Resident Auctions!  If you own parcels on the Mainland (not group land), you are now able to put them up for auction via your parcels’ Place Page.  

You can set the parameters of your auction: start and end times, minimum bid, and the bid increment. If the auction attracts bidders, at the end time the winner gets the land automatically and the winning bid amount less the Auction Commission fee (15%) is automatically transferred to your balance.  

Want to know more? We’ve created an Auctions Walkthrough to help.  It will answer common questions and provide a detailed breakdown of how auctions work and what happens during the different stages of bidding.  

Going once… going twice… SOLD!

Spring Equinox is coming - even if the East Coast of the USA didn’t get the memo - and we can’t properly bid adieu to the chill of the Winter winds without another epic Snowball Fight!

Some say March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb. As we head into April, there’s no denying the peaceful and tranquil sites across so many Second Life regions. While we kissed winter goodbye with our last official snowball fight a few weeks ago there is still plenty of fun to be had as spring rolls in all across the grid.

Our Destination Guide does a great job of rounding up the latest in activities, shopping, and good times to be had. Make sure your spot is on the list and drop us a note at editor@lindenlab.com  or submit your spot via form.

Don’t forget to take loads of pics and share them on our official Second Life Flickr. We select “Pic of the Day” from that group as well as other materials like our Facebook cover and landing page images.

With the announcement of a new “Bill and Ted” movie in the works, you might find yourself wondering what it would be like to travel back in time, and have all of history at your fingertips. Where would you go? What time-frame would you want to see up close? If one of your choices happens to be New York in the 1920s  - the 1940s, then you’re in luck! You don’t have to cram into a phone booth to get there!

Put on your very best era-appropriate outfit (think Guys and Dolls, The Great Gatsby, The Aviator, or Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries) and step through the Time Portal and into New York in the 1920 - 1940s.

This week’s Destination video takes a jazzy glimpse into the steaming streets and humming hustle of New York during one of it’s most interesting times. Sip a daring drink the speakeasy, cut some rug at the Cocoanut Grove, and experience life outside our current timeline, as you travel back to the noir time of an era gone by!

Second Life’s 16th Birthday celebrations continue this week with more fun and events, including an opportunity to meet the people behind Second Life. Here’s your chance to learn more about future plans for Second Life and other behind-the-scenes information via a series of special Town Hall Q&A events at SL16B. 

It all begins today at 2 p.m. with an opportunity to meet Senior Director of Product Operations Patch Linden.

ABOUT OZ LINDEN

Prior to joining Second Life, Oz spent many years developing all sorts of networking code -- eventually including contributions to the development of HTTP and from there to open source SIP (voice over IP). Internet Telephony turned into something of a corporate nightmare, so he looked around for something more fun. A friend who was working at the Lab recruited Oz to help with the open source program. Since he had already played a little with Second Life, he thought that it certainly met the "fun" criteria but he had no idea just how much fun. Nine years later, Oz is responsible for Second Life Engineering and having the time of his life. He is proud to be working on a product that means so much to so many people.

ABOUT APRIL LINDEN
Systems Engineering Manager, Operations

Before joining the dark side and going into management, April was an operations engineer herself for over 20 years. It’s the operations team that handles the care and feeding of the computers that power Second Life.

April has been a Resident of Second Life since 2006, and a Linden since 2013. She adores Second Life and the power that it has to change lives by providing people a safe place to explore themselves, and giving them the courage to change their lives in positive ways.

On Wednesday, you won’t want to miss your chance to hear directly from Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Linden about progress on improvements to Second Life and other developments in the works.

ABOUT EBBE LINDEN
CEO, Linden Lab

Ebbe Altberg came to Linden Lab with more than 25 years of experience leading teams and creating software used by hundreds of millions of users.

It’s all about the community on Thursday as Lead Community Manager Xiola Linden and Marketing Content Specialist Strawberry Linden take the stage.

Second Life is home to many accomplished artists - creative individuals and groups who use the virtual landscape to express themselves through two-dimensional or three-dimensional exhibits and immersives experiences, music, story-telling, poetry, and much more.

Award-winning artist Bryn Oh has been telling unique and chillingly beautiful stories with her installations in Second Life for years. Her visual and virtual art has garnered her a fan base and reputation within the community.

Standby is the final part of the Rabbicorn trilogy, which began with the Daughter of Gears. All three parts to the story can be seen on the Immersiva Region - and parts are shown in this Destination Guide video.

Drop by and immerse yourself in the trilogy that tells the story of the Daughter of Gears and the Rabbicorn.

Last week, we blogged about the opening of Fantasy Faire - and many of you have probably already dropped by to see what is available from the hundreds of Merchants who have items that will go to the benefit of the American Cancer Society.

Did you also know that there’s a big Literary Festival that is part of the faire this year - with story-telling, dramatic performances, workshops, and author meet and greets? Find out more about all the events happening on the Fantasy Faire website.  

This year’s Literary Festival guest of honor is Elizabeth Bear. Elizabeth will be appearing in Second Life for an interview on Tuesday April 23rd , which appropriately is on #WorldBookDay. There’s also a separate reading on Friday April 26. Both events will take place from 2-3pm SLT (Pacific). Here is a snippet taken from her author bio on her website:

[Elizabeth Bear] is the Hugo, Sturgeon, Locus, and Campbell Award winning author of dozens of novels; over a hundred short stories; and a number of essays, nonfiction, and opinion pieces for markets as diverse as Popular Mechanics and The Washington Post.

She lives in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts with her spouse, writer Scott Lynch.

The full schedule for the Literary Festival can be seen on the Fantasy Faire website, but if you want to attend the Elizabeth Bear events, follow the Destination Guide link below.

Linden Lab, the maker of Second Life, is one of the hundreds of organizations collaborating today to generate awareness about the importance of protecting user privacy. We know that our community cares about its privacy...and that’s why we’re happy to support Data Privacy Day -- an international effort to empower individuals and business to respect privacy, safeguard data and enable trust.

To learn more about our commitment to protecting your privacy, check out this Q&A with our Information Security Director Kavya Pearlman (a.k.a. Maya Linden).

“I believe strongly that privacy isn’t just one team’s job - it’s a collaborative, communal effort,” says Pearlman. “Many large organizations have had dedicated privacy teams, yet have ultimately failed in safeguarding consumer data and protecting user privacy, which is why it’s so important to us here at the Lab that privacy comes first at every turn - that it be woven directly into the fabric of our products, from the engineering level to the product level to the marketing level.”

Read Kavya’s full Q&A here.

Our support site (support.secondlife.com) will be undergoing an overhaul next Tuesday afternoon, the 7th of November

We want to provide the community with some advanced notice that the site will be down for about a day while we upgrade our support portal.

What this means for Residents is that after 3pm (PT) on 11/07 you will be unable to submit, edit, or view your current support tickets. The downtime will be used to complete a migration of all the current support tickets to our new Customer Relationship Management tool. 

We currently plan to have the support system back up and running by 9am PT on 11/08. 

Once the initial upgrade and migration is completed we will re-open the support portal for all your support needs. Going forward, our support offering will be hosted by Freshdesk and all support tickets will be submitted through the new support site.

The initial migration will include all open support tickets and any which have been opened since the beginning of 2017. 

We will be moving the rest of the tickets, but it will take a bit of time to migrate everything over. We have over 1.2 million tickets to move and nearly 200,000 live chat records, so please bear with us.

It will take us some time to iron out all the details, but we are making sure that anything you need to access will be available. However, if you have a ticket from 2016 or earlier that you need to access before the end of the year, please collect that information before the change on 11/07.  

We hope the migration isn't a huge inconvenience to our community. Thank you for your patience as we migrate all tickets to the new Freshdesk platform.

Keep an eye on the status blog as we will be updating it with details as we move forward with the deploy and migration. 

Cheers, 
Second Life Support Team

One of the best things about our community is its unwavering support for good causes. Fundraising events and designer fairs that give back to nonprofit initiatives are so ubiquitous that they are now part of our common virtual culture. That’s why we’re excited to call attention to and support both Relay For Life and World Oceans Day - both events take place June 8.

FREE T-SHIRTS IN THE MARKETPLACE

For a limited time, you can grab your free virtual t-shirt promoting one or both causes in the Second Life Marketplace.

RELAY FOR LIFE IN SECOND LIFE

In Second Life, the annual Relay for Life event is packed with events on June 8 including the survivor/caregiver walk and Luminaria Ceremony.  Login, show your support and help raise funds for an important cause. Your presence and contributions do make a difference - over $3.5 million USD have been raised by these efforts over the past decade!

WORLD OCEANS DAY IN SANSAR

There’s a big event happening June 8 in Sansar, too. This World Oceans Day, you don't have to leave home to make a difference.

Help clean a virtual beach in Sansar on Saturday, June 8, from 12 to 5 PM PT, as we celebrate the world's oceans and raise money for EarthEcho International!

To join, simply log into Sansar if you have an account (or download it if you haven’t yet), pick one of 4 shark avatars for yourself, and meet us on the beach, where we'll be picking up virtual trash, bouncing around, and playing games. As more trash gets collected, amazing sculptures will begin to form in the experience.

For every shark that joins, we'll be donating $5 to EarthEcho, along with an additional $5K if we complete the sculpture before the event ends. As a bonus: The Roddenberry Foundation will be matching up to $5K!

It's a one-of-a-kind fundraising event and all you need is a PC to experience it. Don't miss out!
