On a related note, I'm surprised how intact this old secondlife.com page is:

And the old auction page!

3 years before I joined and wow.  looks like even 3 years before, things were more personal.  

Yes, it was exciting and open.  You could find and talk to most people, since the world was still small.  There was much more variety, experimentation, and playfulness in avatar appearance, even if it did look rather crudely made.  Everyone could have a go at making things without feeling inadequate, and there was much less of a corporate feel.  Sorry, LL, it's all so polished and narrow in the official feel now. :/

This is why so many of us are still here, it was awesome, shopping was because you were actually doing something, as in you ran to a store bald in a formal gown to buy new hair because you were going to an event, an event then was actually something social not a shopping location...we called them MALLS. The interactions with people were amazing, people made lifelong friends waiting for lucky chairs, they camped, they met people working, my partner rang my bell in the store I managed for assistance. People would come in and spend time exploring regions that were mainstore locations but were landscaped and providing social areas for customers. When something big happened everyone knew, when something bad happened everyone knew. I met one of my closest friends in the middle of a protest against a store that was selling copybotted skins. I miss those days, the social aspect of Second Life seems to have spread outwards to Social Media instead of inworld, I hope that that changes, but I do understand being able to communicate with thousands over the limits of a region or a group.
