    It feels like we just packed away all that crystal magic from our 15th anniversary celebration, but our sweet sixteen is just around the corner! This summer, we’re throwing a huge celebration to commemorate 16 years with this incredible community and we wanted to fill you in on just a few of the details. Sixteen years ago, on June 23rd, 2003, Second Life launched to the public. Though it feels like just yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time, this year we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go retro and embrace the “Sweet Sixteen” theme for our big party. Sock hops, bowling alleys, and late nights at the diner were a quintessential part of many teenagers lives back in the 1950s, but the 1950s were also a time of political and social change. The world was shocked by the iconic ‘Elvis pelvis,’ and poodle and pencil skirts changed the fashion world forever. Rebellion became the titillating pastime among all that soda shoppe sweetness. It was an era that - like Second Life - rocked and rolled! So, this summer we’re throwing a 1950s themed SL16B with a TON of fun events and happenings. Here is a brief rundown of just a few. Save the Date The dates of this year’s celebration will be June 20th, 2019 through - July 8th, 2019. SL16B Applications for volunteers, performers and exhibitors will be opening soon - so stay tuned to our blog for more updates as these applications become available. SL16B Shopping Event We’re bringing back our multi-region inworld shopping event, complete with gifts and great deals from many Merchants from all over the Grid. If you are a Merchant and you’re interested in submitting an application to participate, please visit and complete this form. The cut-off for submissions will be June 1st, 2019, so be sure to apply sooner rather than later. The shopping event will take place for the duration of the celebrations - June 20th, 2019 through - July 8th, 2019 SL16B Music Faire The 1950s were an exciting time for music - and we have such an incredible live music community in Second Life, we’re going to carry on the spirit of Music Fest with a new event called Music Faire - and will be announcing application for the audition showcase and more very soon. SL16B Gifts and Parties There really ain’t no party like a Second Life party - and there will be some parties within the party that you won’t want to miss. Come As You Were Party (dust off those oldbies and round up those Ruths) and a modern twist on the dance party are just a few of the opportunities you’ll have to come out and shake your virtual tail feathers. There will be costume prizes - so start planning those looks. Dates will be announced as we get closer to the celebration. Last year we introduced the Swaginator at SL15B - and we’re bringing it back again this year with some updates and changes based on feedback. You’ll hear more about this as we get closer - but Swaginator gifts will be easier to get than ever! See You There We’re very excited to hit another incredible milestone this year and can’t wait to shake, rattle, and roll with all our Residents this summer. It’s going to be the ginchiest!

    The long wait is over: Project Animesh has been released Grid Wide! As of today the default viewer download and all regions on the grid support Animesh. Animesh, first announced a year ago (!), allows independent objects to use rigged mesh and animations, just as you see today with mesh avatars. This means that you can now have wild animals, pets, vehicles, hair, zombies …. The possibilities are in your hands! We’ve created a Wiki which outlines how you can begin playing with Animesh. If you are a Premium Account, you will be able to attach two Animesh attachments instead of one. Note: You will need to be on an Animesh Enabled Viewer to see Animesh objects work correctly; if you are using a third party viewer they can let you know when support will be available. A huge “Thank you!” goes out to those Second Life Residents who participated in our year-long Beta, both in the forums and at our inworld User Group Meetings . We’re can’t wait to see what you will create and share with the rest of the community using these new capabilities. To help everyone find new animesh content, we’ve added a category on the Marketplace for it: Animated Objects We look forward to your comments and bug reports in Jira.

    Currently, when a region is full, access to the region is simply on a first come first served basis. This leads to a sort of distributed race to enter the full region; users repeatedly try to teleport or cross into the region and fail until someone leaves. The next attempt made by anyone succeeds, which makes the region full again. Even the region owner and estate managers must compete with other Residents to get into their own region if they find themselves outside of the region when it is full. We are introducing some improvements to how region limits and region entry work: The Region Owner or an Estate Manager can always enter, even when the region is full In effect, the region occupancy limit does not apply to the Region Owner or an Estate Manager for the purposes of entry. Having entered the region, the owner or manager does still increase the count in the region. For example, if there is a region that already has the maximum number of avatars in it, the Region Owner or an Estate Manager would be able to enter, but that would bring the number in the region to 1 over the limit, so 2 would need to leave before the next non owner/manager could enter. The default limit on the number of avatars in each region type is increased Full Regions by 10% (100 to 110) Homesteads by 25% (20 to 25) Open Spaces by 20% (10 to 12) This new bonus capacity is, however, available for entry purposes only to Premium users - for Basic users the occupancy limits remain the same. For example, when a Full Region with a limit of 110 users has 105 users in it, Basic members will be unable to enter - they will see the region as full - but 5 more Premium users will still be able to enter. The current (owner controlled) limit on each region will automatically be reserved for Premium entry by the same bonus %: If the owner of a Full Region had reduced the default 100 avatar limit to 50, the same bonus percentage (+10%) is reserved for Premium entries, so 45 entries will be usable by Basic members, and 5 additional spaces will only be available to Premium members. Once an avatar is in a region, whether they are Premium or not will not matter; they count the same as anyone else. It doesn't matter what the mix of Premium, Basic, or owner/managers in the region is: they all just each count as one occupant. We will be rolling these features out slowly to regions in and around you. We’re excited to offer this new functionality, improving the experience of Land Owners and Premium Members in Second Life. Login and keep your eyes open for another announcement once the rollout is complete!

    Linden Lab has blocked the third party Android client “IM to Secondlife”; it may no longer be used to access Second Life. We did so due to serious violations of the Policy on Third Party Viewers relating to user account security and user privacy. If you have ever used that viewer, Linden Lab strongly suggests that you secure your Second Life account, beginning with updating your password on the Second Life account page: https://accounts.secondlife.com/change_password/ We may need to temporarily hold some accounts in connection with this incident. Please ensure that your contact information is up to date and verify your email address: https://accounts.secondlife.com/change_email/ As a reminder, although you may connect to Second Life using software released by a third-party developer, as explained in our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions, you do so at your own risk. Linden Lab provides a Policy on Third-Party Viewers to promote a positive and predictable experience for all Second Life Residents. Extra caution must be taken with third-party viewers that are not in the Viewer Directory: they have either declined to self-certify their compliance with Linden Lab policies or have been refused for noncompliance with the policies. -Oz Linden

    With SL15B behind us (and SL16B to look forward to!) we thought it was time to have another Town Hall, and give Residents a chance to ask about Second Life and hear the latest news on what is being worked on and planned in Second Life. We’ll also share specific updates on our product development roadmap, as discussed earlier this year. Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg will be appearing at a “Town Hall” chat session on Thursday, September 13th 2018 at 9:30 a.m. (SLT/Pacific). This is your chance to interact directly with Ebbe as he discusses 2018 and beyond. Got a question you want to ask? Post it in the Community Forum thread “September 2018 - A Conversation with Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg” in advance of the Town Hall. Questions will be selected from all submissions made prior to Sept. 10, so make sure to weigh in now! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Sept. 13 to see if your question is selected. On that day, you can join us live for the Town Hall meeting. Location will be publicized closer to the event - stay tuned! We’ll see you inworld soon!

    Over seven years ago, I posted my first set of Viewer release notes to the Second Life Wiki, where we have kept all of our release notes to this day. Over the years, we’ve made some minor tweaks to the appearance and how we generate them, but for they most part they have remained the same. While the wiki has served us well for release notes, it’s time to improve their readability and browsability. We’ve been putting together the finishing touches to a new website dedicated solely to release notes, with a new look and feel that makes the individual pages easier to find, and easier to read - take a look! Previous release notes will still be archived on the wiki, however, new releases will be shared and published on the new website. Our goal is to improve overall accessibility and ease in browsing and reviewing release notes. I, personally, am excited to see the dedicated new website and hope you are too! Steven Linden

    Pictured: Morgue and Brendan Was it Madonna who once sang that music makes the people come together? Well, in the case of Morgue and Brendan, it was music and Second Life that crossed their paths! Having met in Second Life in spring 2011, the two quickly made plans to bring their offline lives together by the following summer. (Watch their airport “meet-cute” recreated in Second Life in the video!) Morgue was involved with the poetry scene, and Brendan was playing live music across the Grid - so it was fate that the two should come together. Their initial spark began when a poem that Morgue had written caught the attention of Brendan’s music manager, who knew these two could make beautiful music together. “[Second Life] is a way for us to do our art,” says Morgue. “[It] has never been a pretend thing,” adds Brendan. To learn more about Morgue and Brendan’s story, watch the latest episode of “Love Made in SL” below. Did you miss an episode of “Love Made in SL”?

    Happy Monday! We’re writing today to remind everyone that we’ll be holding our monthly Web User Group meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 2nd at 14:00 SLT in our usual meeting place, and also to highlight for the community at large some of the things that our Web team has been working on for the last month, and wow, there sure is a lot to choose from! First, we need to acknowledge that a large portion of our time has been spent making on-going back-end changes that our Residents may never notice directly, but which will provide a much more secure and pleasant experience for all going forward. For example, we’ve already completed a full-scale migration of multiple web services away from our dedicated hardware colo and into the cloud. Others have been moved from third-party vendors to an in-house implementation. Still, others have been decoupled from their previous dependencies into stand-alone services. This is all part of our long term plan to move all of our services, from the web properties to the Second Life grid itself, providing us greater reliability, flexibility, and security across the board. We’ll let you try to guess which services have already been migrated - we’re betting you’ll never know the difference! Second, we’re extremely pleased to say that in the last month we’ve made significant progress in laying the foundations for the long-awaited Name Changes feature. All of our teams have been working hard on preparing the grid and all of our systems to accommodate account name changes, both first and last. We’re not quite ready to release all the details yet, but suffice to say that if you’ve ever wanted to change up your account name for whatever reason (and we know you have!) STAY TUNED. Finally, our continuing dedication to improving the Marketplace experience continues. Last month we were very excited to release the new Store Managers functionality. And this month, we’ve been refining that experience, as well as adding more new features for Merchants such as in-world messaging when an item is sold. But we haven’t forgotten the most important part of the Marketplace, the customers! For them, we’ve added a “Gifts Received” page with details about what the items are, who sold it, who bought it, any gift message, with much-requested options for self-service redelivery! All of this on top of our usual laundry list of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, security updates, and general troubleshooting. Whew! It’s been a heck of a September, and this post is only scratching the surface of what we’ve done and what we’re planning for October through the end of the year, so come on by the Web User Group meeting this Wednesday at 14:00 SLT to share your thoughts and to hear ours!

    You may have been among those who had problems seeing avatars yesterday; this is a quick note to share with you what went wrong and what comes next. Early yesterday morning, we deployed an update to the backend service that creates the baked textures and other data that make up your avatar’s appearance. The time was chosen to be at a low point in concurrency because we knew the update would create unusual load (making all-new appearances for every active avatar). It turned out that the load was a little higher than we expected; that probably would have been OK, but we had two simultaneous system failures in the servers that provide some of the key data to the service. By the time we had diagnosed those failures, the backlog of work to be done had grown considerably and the number of active users had also increased. It took a few hours for the backlog of avatar appearances to get caught up. We realize how disruptive events like these can be (our own inworld meetings were full of mostly-gray Lindens and clouds yesterday), and very much regret the inconvenience. We're increasing the redundancy of these services and modifying our deploy procedures to avoid a repeat of this kind of failure in the future. The good news is that this was one of the last backend changes needed for us to be able to roll out the new Bakes-on-Mesh feature on agni; it will, with the updated viewer, allow you to apply system clothing and skins on your avatar even when you're using mesh body parts. Look for the viewer release announcement soon. - Oz Linden

    Place Pages are Linden-hosted web pages for every Second Life location listed in Search, which landowners can customize and make their own. These pages make it easier to discover great places in SL and give Residents another way to promote their destinations. We started a limited Beta program for this feature back in January 2017. This allowed us to respond with tweaks and polish to help get it to where it is today. This current offering is our “Unrestricted Access” release, which now allows all landowners to access their Place Pages and personalize them. Many of these pages will also soon be discoverable via popular search engines, such as Google. This means that more people than ever have the potential to learn about your Second Life place! Moving forward, we’ll be continuing to improve Place Pages with more user-facing features, so stay tuned! For more information, visit the Place Pages Knowledge Base. A forum thread was also started for those wish to get even more history or would just like to leave us feedback. Check out these example Place Pages: The Pen Time Portal We hope you enjoy this new feature and look forward to see even more places to discover and explore!

    The AssetHttp Project Viewer is now available on the alternate viewers page! We expect it to help with speed and reliability in fetching animations, gestures, sounds, avatar clothing, and avatar body parts - but we need your help to make sure everything works! Historically, loading assets such as textures, animations, clothing items and so on has been an area where problems were common. All such items were requested through the simulator, which would then find the items on our asset hosts and retrieve them. Especially in heavily populated regions it was possible for things to fail to load because the simulators would get overloaded. Having these requests routed through an intermediate host also made them much slower than necessary. A few years ago we made the change to allow textures to be loaded directly via HTTP. Now instead of asking the simulator for every texture, the Viewer could fetch textures directly from a CDN, the same way web content is normally distributed. Performance improved and people noticed that the world loaded faster, and clouded or gray avatars became much less common. Today we are taking the next step in enabling HTTP-based fetching. If you download this test Viewer, then several other common types of assets will also be retrieved via HTTP. Supported asset types include animations and gestures, sounds, avatar clothing, and avatar body parts such as the skin and shape. Based on our tests, this change also helps with performance. We need your help to make sure it works for people all over the world, and to identify any remaining issues that we need to fix. Please download the Viewer and give it a spin; we hope it will make your Second Life even faster and more reliable. Sometime after these changes go into the default Viewer download, we will be phasing out support on the simulators for the old non-HTTP asset fetching process. We will let you know well ahead of that time so you can download a supported Viewer, and so that makers of other viewers will have time to add these changes to their products. Please let us know how it goes!

    One of the most popular categories in the Second Life Destination Guide is our listing of Photogenic Spots that highlight beautiful spaces to snap and share with friends. Among our current favorites is Missing Melody, a delightful seaside retreat that features a quaint main square lined with colorful houses and plenty of places to relax. This picture-perfect spot has already caught the attention of the Second Life community with a flattering post from VIRTUALITY including a three-minute fly-through video and an active Flickr group. This week’s Destinations video takes a quick peek at Missing Melody - but we encourage you to login and check it out yourself. Missing Melody Waking up to a new dawn.

    The holiday season is nearly here - and that means cheerful greetings, warm mugs of cocoa, and the spirit of giving are upon us. We’re winding up for a winter inworld shopping event - and we’re now looking for Merchants who would like to participate! For SL14B we held a similar shopping event that was a great success for both customer and Merchants alike - and we are hoping to do the same this winter. This event, which runs from December 15th, 2017 through January 1st, 2018, is an opportunity to introduce new customers to your brand. We are looking for merchants willing to offer a discount on some of their items (think Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals!) and possibly provide a little non-exclusive gift to holiday shoppers. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out this form as soon as possible and no later than Monday, November 27th, 2017. The cut off will be at 12:01 am (SLT) on Tuesday the 28th. We are excited to host this event and look forward to putting it together! Pic by Kathy Nikolaidis

    As you may notice, to fulfill legal obligations, we have added a notification in some places when making purchases that clarifies which legal entity you are transacting with, depending on the country associated with your payment method. Tilia Inc. and Tilia Branch UK Ltd are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Linden Research, Inc, and this does not affect how you contact or receive support. We wanted to clarify this to hopefully help those who may have encountered this and were wondering why they saw some updated notifications.

    Hello Residents of Second Life! Hi, Tommy Linden here, one of your friendly Supervisors from the Support Department. I’m sorry to bring you this news, but we are temporarily unable to offer Region transfers using USD. At the present time all Region transfers between Residents will be required to use L$ for the transaction amount, agreed upon between the buyer and seller. You will, however, still be able to pay any associated fees in USD. Not all is lost! The good news is, I have already spoken with our engineers, and we're working on re-introducing this functionality as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are moving quickly to make things work as seamlessly as possible again in the near future. Best, Tommy Linden

    I have not done a video in a long while, with the introduction of Bakes on Mesh by Second Life to the grid, the release of the new Redux system by Slink gave everyone the chance to see first hand how it could work. They have been working diligently on the newer system for a year or so, and while Bakes on Mesh was not a part of the official viewers it was in beta for a great amount of time, so people could test out features, create content for it to be ready to go. <click here to read more at SasyScarborough>

    This week’s Destinations video turns the spotlight on the many motorcycle clubs and biker communities in Second Life. Whether you are a casual or dedicated enthusiast, these communities and clubs serve as important social spaces where Residents can simply hang out, listen to music and/or take a ride on one of the many gravity-defying roads of Second Life. Many of these clubs, such as the Legions of Vets, also have military veterans as members and hold events to raise money for nonprofits such as The Wounded Warriors and Homes For Our Troops. Also featured in the clip are Cobra MC World, Vipers MC and 4 Horsemen. To get you started, we’ve created a new Motorcycles & Biker Clubs Destination Guide category dedicated to motorcycle and biker culture in Second Life. Are we missing any of your favorites? If so, submit your suggestions to the Destination Guide using our submission form or email us at editor@lindenlab.com.

    "Giving credit where credit is due is a big thing for me. When I’m blogging I try hard to credit everything that appears in a photo, no matter how big or small. Sometimes I use older items and I it’s hard to find if the item is still for sale anywhere. Bloggers rely on the information in the creator’s profile a lot but I’ve often been surprised by how many creators do not keep that information up to date.

    "One of the most interesting tasks involved in building a sim or a group of sims in Second Life is the one of landscaping: not only because this is how we give some (virtual) concreteness to the atmosphere we mean to create, but also because it determines how integrated the different areas of our project will feel to our visitors, and how the transition between them flows.

    "I remember the first time I went to Wales. While I had heard the jokes about Wales and sheep, nothing prepared me for just how many sheep I seen in every field I drove past from the ferry to the place I was staying. Thankfully they stayed in the fields and not run down the village street because I am sure it would not look as easy as the picture above looks catching them." <Click here to read more on the Just Stuff blog>

    "Unconditional, designed by Tomisnotaboy and Moonsoul, is a Homestead region that has been garnering attention since it opened to the public in the past week – and rightly so. It is a visually stunning region, one that appears to have been brought together in a remarkably short period of time: the About Land floater suggests it arrived on the Grid on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019, yet it was open to all before the weekend had started!" <Click here for credits and more on the Living in a Modem World blog>
