As Second Life begins to celebrate its 15th birthday, our “crystal” theme aims to inspire residents to reflect both on the past and see into the future. The community is encouraged to use the crystal aesthetic and concept to creatively express their favorite SL features of the past while also looking forward into the future. The “crystal” theme allows for exploration of the tapestry of time that weaves together the past, present and future of Second Life.
Yes, it’s confirmed. We’re having the SL12Big Hunt again this year, organized by the same folks who did our hunt last year from HuntSL.com. With tons of prizes and fun, how can you not look forward to the celebration!
SL12B is looking for an experienced machinimist to create several short humorous videos introducing residents to SL12B before and during the event, encompassing the spirit of celebration and documenting the event. If you join us, your video will be viewed by thousands of residents.
If you think you fit the bill, drop a notecard on Doctor Gascoigne with links to your previous work.
We also need you to keep submitting your applications for Exhibitors, Performance, Auditorium and Volunteers. Remember, SL12B is a non-commercial event. It’s a celebration by the residents for the residents!
A lot of questions come up from exhibitors and these might be some facts and tips that give you a quick idea of what you’re in for:
Parcel size: 1024m2
Land impact: 269
Textures must not exceed 512 X 512.
Sims are rated G.
Sims open for exhibitors on May 30 at 12:00 pm (noon) SLT
Claim parcel with a prim by June 2 12:00 pm (noon) SLT
General event policies are publicly available here and Exhibitor policies can be found here.
If you have received an email that your exhibit has been accepted, you need to join the Exhibitor’s group.
You need the builder’s group to rez your prim. The group will not be open until May 30 at noon slt.
To get into that group, join “The SLB Community” group. (Search for “The SLB Community” or link here.)
Say in group chat, “I am an exhibitor. Can you join me to the exhibitor’s group?”
When an Exhibitor Assistant can help, they will IM you and check your name against the database. If all is good, they will send you an invite to the “SLB Exhibit and Performance” group.
They will then TP you to your parcel and give you a “piece of cake,” which is actually a box that contains all you will need as an exhibitor.
Rez your cake, look through the things inside, read the notecards.
Hints: Be nice to the Exhibitor Assistant. She/he is a volunteer and fellow resident. She/he only has the power to give you group join, do some things to your parcel, and cheer you on. They can just pass you cake and add your media urls.
If you need toadd building assistants, you can!
Make sure your building assistants are ready to receive a group join.
Go to group chat in the “SLB Exhibit and Performance” group and say, “I need to add building assistants, please.”
An EA will IM you and ask for their names. Give them the log-in names (not display names) of your building assistants and give them a moment.
You are allowed up to 3 building assistants at any one time.
Make sure your building assistants are familiar with the SL11B policies available here and here.
If you need toadd parcel details, this is how you do it:
Try to get as much of this information together first:
The name of your parcel. Keep it below 63 characters.
Your url if you want music. (Make sure the stream works!)
Your url and full perm image if you want media on prim. (Again, make sure it works!)
Your photo if you want a special image on your parcel description. (Ratio: 20:13)
A 255-character or less description if you would like to provide a parcel description.
Important: the location of your parcel!
Go to group chat in the “SLB Exhibit and Performance” group and say, “Can someone help me fix the settings on my parcel, please.”
An EA will respond. Hand them the above information (in a notecard is great). They will tp over as soon as they can and take care of it.
