For a limited time, the Second Life community can explore a new experimental version of Social Island, which is a revised welcome area that we hope both new and returning Residents will enjoy.
Based on your feedback, we’ve been harvesting a new crop of ideas to grow a new-and-improved experience. The Second Life development team has planted the seeds for several new experimental features that you’ll only find in this new Social Island preview. This area will continue to grow in the future, but you can get a "sneak peek" now! Highlights include a challenging maize, and a revised region design that we think will yield more organic and natural social interactions.
We do want to emphasize that this is just a kernel of what’s to come, and that some features are still under construction, but we hope that you’ll check it out!
