Was posting to the long-lived Second Life Educators email list that has been in place since probably 2007 and it gave me back an error that it can not be found!

I tested the Nonprofit's in SL list (nonprofits@lists.secondlife.com ) as well and doing the same.

Anyone know what happened to all of the email lists - lists.secondlife.com ?

Maybe email group is a victim of social distancing, or whoever "owned" the list is no longer with LL.

clearly gone .. how long ago did you use it? If you are a returner it might be abandoned years ago, when most edcucational use of SL disappeared, not all relics pre 2010 are kept.

We retired those mailing lists in April; I sent a message to the lists on April 7th announcing the upcoming change and suggesting that this forum be used instead.

Hi again,

I was one of the regular posters to both the educators and noprofit forum (in answer to an earlier comment). (RL things during quarantine kept me from posting on the email list the last couple of months)

@Oz Linden there was the question in that last email list thread in response to your on why the archive was also taken down even if you stopped the email list part. Many of us would refer back to that since it was a knowledge-base like resource that spanned over a decade.

Also, there doesn't seem to be a replacement in the Forums for the Nonprofits list? Can that be set up for the many nonprofit/social good folks part of that community using Second Life?

Thanks,

Rhiannon Chatnoir

I wasn't subscribed to either list, and that question wasn't copied to me directly, so I'm afraid I never saw it.

I had looked at the archives for both lists back a couple of years and seen almost no actual discussion; both had little more than the occasional post announcing upcoming conferences. 

There's a chance that I could restore those archives from backups and post them if they would be useful, but I'm skeptical that there was anything less than many years old that would be of current interest.

My personal philosophy (not LL policy) is to create new forums/lists when a significant fraction of the traffic in a more general one shows that there's demand. I watch a bunch of the existing forums but not nearly all and I have not seen that (certainly the old mailing list didn't have it).  If you think it would be actually used we can certainly look into creating it, but an empty forum doesn't help anyone. What do you think?

This forum covers 2013 till now in 10 pages, so it's lightly used. Perhaps rename this forum Second Life Education and Nonprofits? Also, since event announcements are most of what was in the mailing list, would those be allowed here?
