How long have you been a Resident of Second Life?

Recommended Posts

Originally since somewhere in the middle of 2008, after a break of a year and a half, I returned 8 months ago.

A few more months and it would be 13 years. I'm surprised I didn't hear about Second Life sooner. I just happen to be searching for something one day and I saw SL come up in the results. It's a lot easier to find new product developments these days.

Second Life is the best thing ever for me.

Just under 12 years for my original account however back then my internet was so bad I had to use the lowest draw distance I could, music turned off and I could not really walk around or explore much due to loading times. I stuck around for awhile before moving on then returned years later when I had a better connection (I still had to use a small draw distance due to loading times but I could at least explore the grid). From there my internet got better and my draw distance increased until a year or 2 ago when my internet started getting worse over time. Now I have a large cache so I can still go to all my favorite places, my draw distance is reasonable but I spend most of my time in one of a few places I own. My internet has gotten so bad that sailing is no longer an option for me and I lost my slip in bay city who knows how long ago. It's gotten to the point where I am now looking at switching ISP's to one which I believe will give me a more reliable connection but possibly not much faster than my old one.

Being a SL citizen since 2007, im still amazed about the different kinds of people you can meet, and about the experiences you can make in this wonderful world.
Not to mention the evolution from the early standard avatars to the beautiful mesh fashion dolls we have today.

Started in 2007, so in my 11th year now. Been on and off in that period, some (longer) breaks, but always returning and getting hooked again, mostly due to the interesting and fun people I meet each time :)

I joined in April 2005 and have always made a home in SL, ever since rushing through the Welcome Area to buy First Land.  So it's been 13 years and a bit, not counting alt time, and excepting a break of a few months in 2008 when I was homeless in RL.  There isn't much that stops me being here. :o)

Joined (on this account) in Feb 2008, so a bit over 10 years.  I have an older account, but it's older only by about 4 months. :-)

I first joined sometimes in 2004 and lost my first account because I forgot the last name I had picked.

Then I created this one in June 2004... and I basically never left.
