Having 8.5 years or so of experience upon Second Life, I would like to consider myself something of a Veteran. I've been around, as they say, I've been in tight nit groups of various types, from trollers to builders. But for months to years now, i've been mostly occupied with building, creativity, specifically in mesh. inbetween playing other games and Real Life™. but over the time i think sometimes, SL is a social game, I can't be the only person out there who actively uses SL for Art that enjoys the social aspect also. So i set out looking, when i get the urge to brows the vastness of SL, for incredible mesh builds, or mesh builders to reach out to, groups and societies of active, like-minded people... Sure i find sandboxes, there's probably 500 or so sandboxes now/left on SL, the majority of which are however empty, or filled with people who have little interest than a quick stop experiment/unpacking goods. Don't get me wrong, i'm not conceited enough to consider myself among the 'elite' or what have you, I enjoy what I do, and while the professional life of art would be nice, for today I like to keep it on the level and enjoy the act of creating what I do. Thusly i come to the forums, the central hub of noise and spam looking for answers, and like-minded individuals, who may even now be alone in their isolated parcel, wondering if anyone else out there is interested in the same thing. Are there groups of people actively enjoying, collaborating and building? or even individuals doing the same, Somewhere out there?
