  1. So, John Carmack has left Meta. He's known as a VR pioneer. Despite there has been no official VR Viewer for SL for some time, do you think Carmack's skill & experience can benefit Second Life?
  2. Happy December! To celebrate the winter holiday season, we are releasing new last names today! ❄️ The following winter-themed names are only available for a limited time: Tinseltail Elf Mistletoe Gingerbread Noelle Claus Blitzen These names for winter are seasonal and may come back around this time next year, for a limited time. The following is a screenshot of the full list of current last names available: We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. You can also suggest your favorite name on our suggestion form, the new names were chosen from there! For more information about the costs and how-tos involved in name changes, read the Changing your username FAQ. Click to change your name now!
  3. To kick off the holiday season, where the days are short and the air is cold, we’ve got something to keep you warm: a special offer for Premium and Premium Plus subscribers! Premium and Premium Plus subscribers will pay no setup fees for any new regions purchased during the month of December. Only pay the first month’s maintenance fee and move right in. Here’s how to take advantage of this offer: Have a Premium or Premium Plus account Order a region between December 1 and December 31, 2022 by filing a support ticket with your order request using the Land and Region -> Order Private Region ticket type Region delivery will occur within 2 business days once all details have been verified. For quickest delivery: Please note that region names must adhere to our naming guidelines If you need assistance finding grid coordinates for your region, please review the Choosing a location for your Private Region help article You will be billed for the first month’s maintenance fee at the time of delivery For more information about Private Regions, please review the Private Regions knowledge base article and Private Region Pricing. Please note that in order to purchase a Homestead Region, you must either be a Premium Plus subscriber (additional information here) or own at least one Full Region. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do with the place!
  4. As we approach the holidays, we’re excited to roll out several shiny new updates to our offerings. From now on, our European residents will no longer need to pay VAT charges on any of our membership plans. Continuing the theme of giving you more for less: We’re reducing the price of owning your piece of Second Life. We want to put Mainland ownership within reach of many more residents, because we think having land of your own is one of the key parts of Second Life. In addition to the free allotment that comes with each membership level, we’re lowering the price at 1/8 region (8,192 m2) and higher by over 5%. As of today, the new pricing looks like this: And how about that new membership plan? We’re calling it Plus! We already have Premium Plus, but this is Plus for the rest of us! For just $5.50/month (annual billing), you can take advantage of these newly reduced mainland prices without having to shell out for all of the other Premium features. Plus lets you dip your toe in the water -- get yourself a plot of mainland, a few more groups to play around in, and enjoy a weekly stipend -- all for the price of a pumpkin spice latte. Unlike the latte, the joy will last you all month! So what are you waiting for? Give Plus a try and enhance your Second Life. For more information about Plus, read the Plus Membership FAQ. For more information about all of our membership plans, check the Knowledge Base.

  6. As featured in the October 21 edition of Lab Gab - we’re excited to announce a new Premium Plus benefit available beginning today, November 1, 2022. Premium Plus members are now eligible to purchase up to one Homestead on their account, without the requirement of a full private island region. Premium Plus members who wish to take advantage of this new benefit will need to maintain their Premium Plus account status, in good standing, for the duration of ownership of the Homestead region on their account. In the case of a downgrade to a lower subscription level, it will be necessary to cancel or transfer the Homestead to another Resident eligible for owning Homestead regions. To place an order for your new Homestead, please go to support.secondlife.com and submit a Support Ticket under the following category: Land & Region > Order Private Region Fill out that form including the unique name you prefer and location on the grid for placement. A support agent will be in contact with you soon to discuss your request. Region names must adhere to our naming guidelines. For more information about Private Regions, please review the Private Regions knowledge base article and Private Region Pricing. There is no change to Homestead ownership for all other accounts: everyone is still able to own Homestead regions as long as there is at least one Full private region owned on that account as well. As a reminder, Homesteads cost US$149 for the first month with setup and US$109 per month thereafter, plus applicable VAT and taxes. And, of course, if you have any questions, please reach out to our Support Team and they will be happy to assist.
  7. Over the past few weeks, The Wall Street Journal has released a four-part podcast series exploring Second Life’s pioneering origins and rich 19-year history. It includes in-depth interviews with Philip Rosedale (founder of Second Life) and employees and Residents that have made a powerful impact on Second Life’s growth and history. Today marks the release of the fourth and final episode so you can now listen to the full podcast series with complete transcripts also available at each link: How to Build a Metaverse, Part 1: Genesis How to Build a Metaverse, Part 2: Avatars Behaving Badly How to Build a Metaverse, Part 3: Prime Time How to Build a Metaverse, Part 4: Why Build a World? Whether you are a long-time Resident or new to Second Life, we encourage our community members to take a listen and learn more about our past and future in this in-depth podcast series. If you like what you hear, please share it with your friends on social media and (as always) tell your friends about Second Life, too!
  8. Hello, and Happy Wednesday! Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve updated our Name Change service in a major way. We’ve told you that we were going to keep working on adding new features to the Premium and Premium Plus offerings, and we’re delivering on that once again today. From here on, Premium and Premium Plus subscribers will benefit from a reduced price for the Name Change service. But that’s not all! Not only are we discounting the service across the board, but we’ve decided to democratize the service to everyone. That’s right, as of today, everyone can change their avatar name regardless of their subscription level. Not just the Premium subscribers that have always been able to do so, but all of our Basic accounts as well! This is something we’ve been trying to offer for a long time, and something that we get requests for on a consistent basis, so we couldn’t be more pleased to finally be able to announce it. As an exciting new option for Basic accounts, here’s what it looks like today. Not only do you have the option to change your avatar’s first name to anything you can imagine, but we also offer a rotating list of last names to give your avatar (even if you don’t already have one) that are updated on a regular basis. We will continue to make updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. You can also suggest your favorite name on our suggestion form, new names are chosen from there! For more information about the costs and how-tos involved in name changes, read the Changing your username FAQ. Click to change your name now!
  9. We are so excited to see the positive response our Premium Plus offering has had! We’ve had thousands of sign-ups so far in just the first month, and no signs of slowing down. To celebrate the success of the first month of Premium Plus and give everyone the opportunity to take full advantage of this offer, we have decided to extend the first-month promotional price of $24.99 for an additional week (until 8/8)! Starting on August 8th the monthly cost for Premium Plus will return to its non-promotional price of $29.99/mo, so you’ll need to act fast to lock in the first month’s discount. For just $24.99, you’ll get a whole month of L$650 per week, a L$3000 signup bonus, fully paid-for mainland tier of 2,048sqm, and the ability to join up to 140 groups! Throw in unlimited free uploads of sounds, textures and animations on top of all the standard Premium benefits you already know and love, and we think that’s a heck of a deal. And if you’d like to lock in the discount for an entire year, the Annual Premium Plus membership is a further 17% off, saving you a total of over 30% off the Monthly price! If you haven’t had a chance to sign up for our most generous subscription level yet, why not give it a try today and see if Premium Plus is right for you?

  14. Hello, and Happy Monday! Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve updated the look of our inworld and web-side Search feature to bring it more in line with the look and feel of our viewer and the direction that that rest of our web properties will be going (see the new Join page, and the new secondlife.com landing page - they’re excellent). New Search home page in the viewer. Our goal was to clean up the interface and provide a more streamlined and user friendly Search feature that maintained all the functionality that we’ve all come to expect and rely upon. Helpful tool tips will guide you in getting the most functionality out of your searches, and will update as we add more options for more sophisticated searches. Search options are detailed in the search bar tool tip. Once you’ve begun your search, you’ll find that all the familiar options are still available so that you can refine your search for Places, People, Events, Groups, Land to Buy or Rent, Classifieds, etc. We have not changed the algorithm that our Search feature uses in any way. We have simply tried to present the information in a more pleasing and useful manner. All your favorite functions are easy to find. All searches can be filtered by the convenient maturity dropdowns. We’re extremely excited to be rolling this out today in time for all of our Holiday searching. We hope that you’ll enjoy the new look and feel just as much as we do, and we look forward to unveiling a host of new features for Search to go along with this facelift in the new year! Happy Searching!
  15. Hi everyone! Zack Haiku here, from Around The GRID Weekly. I'd like to know if anyone is interested in helping out launching S3 of our new show. I am planning on doing it bi-weekly this time (every 2 weeks, that is), and I could use your suggestions for: News: Anything on SL news you'd like to see mentioned? Event showcase: What have you found in an ongoing event that you liked? Send me your suggestions This Really Meshes Me Up! Anything that really grinds your gears on SL that you'd like to see sorted out? When you wish upon a Linden... What new things would you like to see on SL? Make your suggestions, maybe LL will listen to us Destination Guide: What new (or old) sims would you like to see showcased on our show? SLArt: Any creators, be it artists (song, photography, djs) or shops that you'd like to see included on our Art segment? We would also love to interview creators and SL personalities who would be interested in showing up on AtGW. Your suggestions are most welcome. And let me know if you'd like me to create a SL group and/or a discord channel for the show, so you can be in touch with us. Keep being awesome! Zack Haiku (Zack.Galbreus)

  17. hi there just wondering are there any new homes available yet, as everything has gone quiet, since the last batch, i want a traditional one , missed out on the last batch
  18. I understand that politics is an extremely sensitive topic for most people on both the web and in real life. I am wondering if it is ok to talk about politics in Second Life? If not, what are the consequences that will happen to your Second Life account? Will you get banned or something? I've witnessed that the banning happens often in virtual worlds and websites for children and teens, but I am curious if that same rule applies to here.
  19. Hello, i started to wonder about idea to publish a newspaper in some kind of Adult/Moderate topic (sponsored by paid advertisements in it) in format of HUD and publish it on Marketplace for 0L$. Maybe anyone knows if this kind of news-spreading type already existing / existed in Second Life? Maybe it failed as an idea? Also what do you think about that kind of Marketplace item? Would it be interesting to read about new clubs, some creator interviews and etc...?
