I enjoy SL Forums. I drop in once or twice a day, usually to the General Discussions section, during my tea break at work. I learn things or get a laugh most days and sometimes I contribute, like today.

I'm still getting "Happy Birthday" messages from them . . . but that may just be an automated function?

I thought I'd heard that you could log in to Virtualverse using your old SLU identity, but neither of the two email addresses I might have once used for SLU is being recognized. I suppose I'll have to create a new log-in.

Has Cris got the archives up yet, or are they still a work in progress?

Heck, I barely have time to keep up with these forums anymore. Though I do still check Inara's blog now and then.

Same. The only other SL-related thing I look at are the SL feeds, which don't really fall into the categories being discussed here.

One of my alts still gets these. I think if the site could sing songs, it'd be Daisy rather than Happy Birthday.

You need to create an completely new account to log into VirtualVerse One (VVO - http://www.virtualverse.one). In your profile there’s a field where you can enter your old SLU post count manually.

Cris hasn't got the archives up yet.

No, you have to register on VVO. Cris couldn't port anything over to the new software other than some of the smilies.

Haven't heard anything about the archives since he said he would be doing it. No progress reports that I've seen.

SLU and VV are two totally different websites on different databases - so you would have to register for a new account.

The archive are not up :(

Starting?  He started covering SL like he didn't enjoy it back in 2010!  Or was it 2009?  Anyway, years!  Some of us who comment regularly on NWN have commented on how he doesn't use SL "like the rest of us" anymore.

Also there's some Fashionista named Sasy who has a blog, which unlike some other oldbie fashionistas...is still active.

♥ CronoCloud you are a Jewel. I have been reading on and off for years, but while I may have missed the past it is screaming now, and it is very unsettling. He used to inform and if he was calling them out on something then he did, and that is fine, I get that, but this is like someone removed his all access pass and he is grouchy. It is a shame because the site is beneficial and he has covered suggestions many times over the years, but definitely felt a big disturbance of late, maybe because I am a drop on by reader rather than an always I got hit with the grouchy stick harder lol.

 

p.s we have to catch up in world sometime, Whimsy and Ashia and I are often about in the evening and Fashion Emergency has started talking lately it is a whole new world lol
