Best of 2011

Recommended Posts

At some point around this time last year, I recall that someone started a thread to reminisce about the best of the forums from 2010. I haven't seen a similar thread for 2011, so here it is.

A lot has changed in the past year. The Jive forums were replaced with Lithium, moderators began the thankless task of trying to tame this sometimes unruly crew, and we experienced some growing pains as the community here adjusted to the ongoing changes and fine-tuning. Some familiar names have moved on and new posters have arrived. The my.secondlife.com feeds were introduced, and some conversation has moved there. And yet despite all the change, I know there are positive memories being made here. I'd love to know what some of your favorite forum moments from 2011 are. Include the links to your favorite threads (if you are able to dig them up) so that we can all remember the good times together. And because I myself have been largely absent here in recent months, I would very selfishly love the opportunity to find the gems I may have missed along the way.

Quinn, without a doubt the best thread of the SL Forum...2011...was the "Curiouser and curiouser" thread...started by Alazarin Mondrian. 


http://community.secondlife.com/t5/General-Discussion-Forum/Curiouser-and-curiouser/td-p/953465


That thread took on a life of it's own and pulled in a whole range of forum dwellers...embodying the spirit of cooperation.   Then when Janelle Darkstone graced the thread with her posts...and her running comic story-line...the thread transcended normal forum posts...and became true art and entertainment.

No list would be complete without the most prolific threads

There was another one.  An RP one that I had a great time reading.  It had the fight against the measlies and an adventure story.  I never posted to it, but I enjoyed it immensely.  Maybe someone else has the link?

I'm glad I started this thread. All those mentioned are certainly classics of 2011, and already I am reliving fond memories. Thanks for the links, everyone. Keep 'em coming!

it has been a year or 2 since i have been here, was pleased to find myself unbanned, i seem to remember spicing it up so much that a 1000 comments with 10,000 views was not hard to get, lol, i think they banned me for it, but it was 2 years ago, i am good now.

Canoro, thank you for mentioning that episode. 

During that time when I was banned from here, I could only read, and not post.  Just seeing the gallant efforts, and the diverse variety of people who participated...had me on the verge of tears.  I was so moved by the unity, courage, and unparalleled corporation amongst forum dwellers...it was a revelation

 

Someone mentioned the battle with the Measlies thread.   Here it is:  Started by Dillon Levenque

You Only Live Twice....

http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Favorite-Destinations/You-Only-Live-Twice/m-p/835523/highlight/true#M728

An amazing thread with a free-form RP story-line added to by the many participates, and highlighting some of the best and most beautiful sims and builds in SL.    You Only Live Twice, had suspense, bad-guys, danger, shoot-outs, battles, mechs/robots, intrigue, mystery...and fun! 

 

ETA:  Oh.   I just now saw that Cinn added You Only Live Twice to her post!    But, I think that...You Only Live Twice..so posting it twice, is in order.   *smiles*

deGebelin will add a spread card for Ms. Quinn card if she so desires.

Interpretation: Be careful what you ask for you may just get it.
