    Today we’re rolling out a new logo for Second Life. Second Life has seen a surge of interest from people new to SL, longstanding residents, and groups and businesses seeking a uniquely interactive place for gatherings and special events. With this renewed attention we decided it was time to update a key part of how we tell the world what SL is all about. Second Life is still going strong, with a devoted and energetic resident community, and we want everyone to know that. The old logo has served us well but no longer projects our vision for SL as we move into this next decade. The new logo uses clearer, bolder type to communicate our optimism and confidence in what the future holds for SL. We retired the soft green color in favor of bright blue to reflect the boundless energy of our residents, who create amazing content and experiences. When it comes to what you can do with SL, the (blue) sky’s the limit! Second Life is a big product. In addition to the Viewer, there are hundreds of web pages, and the old logo is on all of them. We don’t want to distract our teams from the important projects our community knows we’re working hard on. So you will see a mix of new and old logos for a while as teams find time to make updates. We’re all excited to use the new logo and we hope you like it. -- The Second Life team

    I really miss RL travel. Sniff. Since I can't travel for real, I am continuing my SL ventures! Today I went to La Petite Joie.

    Well, this is awkward... Due to the ongoing public health crisis, we’ve experienced an unprecedented surge in demand for new Second Life regions. While we are thrilled by the heightened interest, the increased demand has consumed our available inventory of full regions and homesteads (there are still many parcels available on existing regions, both on the mainland and from private estates). We are committed to maintaining (and improving) the stability and performance of Second Life. So while we are very gratified that we can be of help to people in these trying times, unfortunately, our current server systems cannot accommodate unlimited growth without adversely impacting that stability and performance. This means that region inventory in Second Life will be extremely limited and may not be readily available until early fall. WHY DID THIS HAPPEN? As we’ve discussed previously, Second Life is in the process of migrating from our existing dedicated servers to a cloud hosting service. That migration has already moved a number of the most important services and databases, but we are not quite ready to host simulators in the cloud. We have a crack team working on that and are making lots of progress, but there are significant changes needed to make sure that we can provide the performance, stability, and security required. When that process is complete we will have a nearly unlimited region capacity, but until then we are constrained by the size of our existing server fleet. While our migration project has been underway for some time, even our most optimistic business projections did not anticipate a surge of the magnitude we have seen in recent weeks for additional regions. While we planned for growth driven by improvements to Second Life and other factors, we didn't expect demand to be created by a global pandemic. As a result, we are in the unfortunate position of hitting the maximum capacity of our “old” servers until the “new” cloud servers are fully operational. WHEN WILL REGIONS BE AVAILABLE AGAIN? Regions may be intermittently available as existing regions are returned to us by their current owners. Due to the economic impact of the public health crisis, we do expect that some limited number of landholdings will be returned to the general inventory in the coming weeks. This means that there may be some regions available on-and-off, but it is more likely that normal region sales will not resume until our migration to the cloud is complete. While we do not have an exact date at this time, we anticipate it will be early fall. WHAT IMMEDIATE OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE MEANTIME? So, what are your options if you are seeking land sooner? Owning land on the Mainland is an alternative. We can offer abandoned Mainland directly for sale with a range of various parcel sizes from 512sqm per parcel to an entire full region (minus infrastructure). You can learn more about purchasing abandoned Mainland in our Knowledge Base. Consider renting from an existing landholder. If you do not need an entire region, there are plenty of rental options available from established Second Life landholders right now. Learn more about how rentals work in our Knowledge Base. You can also explore Land Auctions in Second Life. Much like an auction on the popular auction-based shopping site eBay, Second Life Land Auctions allows individuals to place their bids on open inventory for available parcels across the virtual world. You can learn more about how the auctions process works in our Knowledge Base. There are also third-party sellers that offer both parcel and full land rentals and sales. For example, some of the better-known entities are listed on the Land & Estates category in the Destination Guide but you can also find many on the Forums or through the Land & Rentals tab in Second Life Search (on the web or in the Second Life Viewer). We’ll update the community as soon as we can when normal region sales resume, but in the meantime, we recommend any of the above alternatives until things get back to normal. Questions or comments?

    I try to keep my paws out of this thread. Who wants to see cat pictures anyway? Today I finally updated Par's human form a little. It's been awhile. Scary, yes? No tail, mostly hairless ... not at all a proper cat.

    I'm constantly jumping between my main account (this one) and my alt account (Wenly). Coby uses Genus head, Wenly uses Akeruka advanced limited edition head. Both heads have their specific features which I like a lot. In General it appears that the Genus has more mature look. Akeruka is kind of "cuter" and It seems to me that it has more varied expressions than Genus. Anyway, it's hard to say which head I like more. Both are very nice heads. ❤️ Here is me with Genus Classic head.

    Well it looks like there was quite the convo going on! Aherm.. well I have nothing much else to offer except that I love love love Amara Beauty skins.. she has three free skins, yes, completely free--no group needed, etc.. at the mainstore. One for Catwa, one for Lelutka Evolution, and one for Genus. Below is the Lelutka Evolution.. they are complete fat packs and as usual I chose the palest tone, added my blush and freckles and my eyes I just made and voila! lovely, don't you think? Just for reference I took this on CLW in Firestorm on medium resolution. Hair is by truth and top and bra are from tee*fy

    hey everyone, new here and figured I'd give this a shot. Here are a quick snapshots of my avi today. If anyone is a photographer and willing to work with a newbie, I'd like to get some better shots.

    On location at hi-cafe. I went a bit crazy on the post-processing with this one. The hair is a new release from Truth that I was not loving in the ad, but had to have once I tried it on.

    Yesterday was a day of contrast. There was the joy and thrill of participating in Bay City's 12th Anniversary. So much fun! Then there was a change to my Second Life which didn't hurt much at first, but as the hours ticked by the sense of pain and loss grew. It's a brand new week, a new day, but I am starting at the bottom. The only way is up, right? **Blue Monday**
