Here is a link with some tips on getting started. You could browse over some of the information.

I enjoy building and creating objects in Second Life. A friend has been working on her photography and another friend creates 3d artwork.

How you decide to spend your time in Second Life is entirely up to you. Have fun, explore.

The orientation doesn't really give new users much, well, orientation.

It helps to think of SL as one part chat room, one part videogame mod, and one part 3D internet. You can "do" practically anything. Want to build your own MMO? Buy a sim and start building!

Want to meet new people to chat with? Find a club or three!

Want to see what other people have been building? Open up the search engine and type in whatever strikes your fancy! There's castles, cities, derlict space ships, floating islands...

Want to role-play with others? Same thing, open up the in-world search engine and type whatever theme you'd like to role-play in. Want to play an elf in a fantasty kingdom? Want to play a gruff, heavily armed space marine? Want to play a werewolf in a modern day city? There's RP sims for all this and more.

 

 

Actually, to start off and give yourself an idea of what's out there, here's a few places you can go exploring at. You should be able to visit these locations by clicking on the links. If that doesn't work, just type the link in the chat window and it will appear in chat history as a link you can click.

 

 INSILICO - A futuristic sci-fi metropolis.

 Forgotten City - The ruins of an ancient city. Airships float near  the docks high up in the air, rusted clockwork robots stand frozen in time everywhere around the city.

Doomed Ship - A horror-filled derlict spaceship.

 Japan Kansai - A trip back to feudal Japan!

 

 There's also all kinds of clubs, groups, events, you name it.

Welcome otkplease, to the Second Life forums.

Second Life does not have team points like a traditional MMORPG "game", rather it is a world where you can try anything at all, only limited by your imagination

You should look at the Second Life Destination Guide for ideas and inspiration of all the wondrous activities on offer that you might find interesting to participate in. Please click on the Second Life icon at the top left hand side of this page and it will take you back to the home page, where you can browse all the links.

Also, there are many great video tutorials to be found made by Torley Linden, over on youtube.

Welcome to Second Life!  That's really quite easy to answer.  There is no object to Second Life. You are supposed to be doing anything that you want to. Depending on your personal perspective, this is a social networking platform, a creative environment, a role playing platform, .... almost anything. There is no systematic goal and there are no points to be earned, no badges....  I suggest that you spend some time exploring to see what you find.  Try looking in the Destination Guide, for example, to see the range of exciting areas in SL.   Go shopping, attend an in-world musical event, visit a club, look for educational areas where you can take a class and start learning a creative skill .......   Introduce yurself to people who look interesting.  Have fun.  :smileyhappy:
