    Looking for something to do over the weekend? Scope out some of these activities with your friends. Don't forget to check our Recently Added category to see all the latest additions to the Second Life Destination Guide!

    Are you interested in some roleplaying? Hit up The Wastelands, which we featured earlier this week on Spotlight. They are a post-apocalyptic community celebrating 15 years in Second Life this weekend. Their schedule of events is bursting with all sorts of live music, DJ sets, combat & sports, roleplay sessions, giveaways, storytelling, and more! Visit for 3 days of activities this weekend! 

     

    Do you prefer more fantasy roleplaying games? You might want to see The Thought Spike, a new RPG destination.

     

    Perhaps you'd like to play a shooting game, do some quests, or pick up a passport and get it stamped as you travel the grid? Explore some of these Gaming destinations!

     

     

     

    Do virtual roller coasters, bumper cars, and ferris wheels bring back fun childhood memories? Hit up these amusement parks!

     

     

    Do you love the water and want to try out virtual surfing, diving, or sailing? Teleport over to these water sports destinations!

     

     

     

    Are you more of a party animal and would rather go dancing in a crowded room with other music lovers? Peak Lounge is one of the most popular places in Second Life. We featured it a few weeks ago alongside other popular clubs that have DJs playing 24/7. You can also check out the Music category for even more clubs with all kinds of themes and live music events!

     

    Or perhaps you'd like to do some quiet reflection and meditate this weekend? Enjoy the soothing nature sounds at Peaceful Moments, meditate, and find peace.

  4. Hello Residents!

    We’ve just released an update to our previous Maintenance viewer (here). We introduced a media playing bug last time and this update fixes that.

    More information on the previous bug here.

    Work around for the previous bug here.

    Please feel free to try it out and let us know of specific problems by filing a Jira.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked through this problem! 
     

  5. Join Wendi, Vix, and members of the Land team this Wednesday, the 22nd of December at noon SLT at Linden Estate Services to discuss various support and Mainland-related topics.

    This time, it’s our holiday get together. We’ll be discussing the latest holiday goings on, and reminiscing on our year together in Second Life.

    The Concierge and Land User Group meeting is a monthly, public meeting intended for discussion and education of Second Life topics of use to both Mainland Residents and Estate owners.

    Hello Residents of Second Life!  

    Over the last few days, Residents using certain email providers may have noticed that they are not receiving all email notifications for events such as Marketplace purchases and Offline Messages.  

    Email has come a long way since it was first introduced to the world in the 1960s. There are many factors that affect the deliver-ability of a message, and algorithms which affect it are constantly being updated.  Sometimes things go awry despite best intentions - such as certain phrases being flagged as indicative of spam, or the volume of messages sent in a certain time frame.

    Second Life is a complex beast and not all our email sending practices are as good as they could be. We are re-examining these practices and we’re going to do better to make sure our Residents are able to get the information they need.

    There are some things you, as the recipient, can also do to better ensure deliver-ability, such as having email filters, white-listing certain contacts, checking your spam folder and marking legitimate messages “Not Spam,” and even contacting your email providers about certain emails.

    If you are experiencing issues receiving emails from us, you may also want to consider updating your email temporarily to a different provider (for example if @yahoo emails are failing, try a @gmail account), verifying your email address with us (offline IMs, friendship offers, auctions, etc all require a verified address), and white-listing (add sender to contacts) Second Life messages to ensure you receive them in the future. It’s always best to use an email account that is only accessible by you.  

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and will provide updates once available.
