-NEWS- Teen SL to close

Posted in BRN NEWS on August 15, 2010 by Matty

It has been announced at SLCC that 16 to 17 year olds will be moved from the Teen Grid to the Main Grid, with an indicator that Teen SL is most likely to be closed, to tell the truth I thought this would happen a year or two ago.

But, with the influx of under 18s to the main grid, keep in mind region ratings and where you place your creations to save yourself future problems.

I must however point out that the closure of Teen SL is not yet set in stone, the move of 16 to 17 year olds to the main grid is however. Educators at SLCC voiced thee belief on the educational opportunities that teen SL provide, outweigh the Main Grid, however I am sure we will here what is happening in the coming months

-UPDATE- Terrence Linden has stated that LL will not be deleting TG user accounts (avatars) or inventory. However has indicated that accounts maybe instead be put on hold.

BRN TO CLOSE (This post is all over the place, sorry)

Posted in BRN NEWS on March 25, 2010 by Matty

Well everyone, I think my eyes are sore with tears. This is attempt number 42, lets see if I can word this right.

I came to Second Life with a goal, that goal was simple. “Make friends, and not be lonely.” I think I achieved this goal, and yet… I feel like I haven’t met it all these years on. Maybe I am demanding to much from my friends, but I truly hope you forgive me. Despite how many of you have shared your love and support, even fund-raising to buy me a laptop to help keep me coming back to Second Life,  I feel so lonely.

These last few months have been to much, I am dragging myself on the ground to move just constantly in tears. I am spending sometimes up to 16 hours staring at my computer screen waiting for messages from people, anyone… just a hello… just a how are you. These messages never come… and the messages for requests of content and objects, are also constantly making me feel used. I don’t feel like anyone remembers me as a person.

So yes my departure from Second Life is selfish, but sometimes we have to think of ourselves first.

As said earlier I have been in Second Life since its beta, I have seen so many changes. Its hard to imagine that we only hit 1 million users on October 18th. Now look at that population. I am truly impressed with what SL has become, but at the same time I am also saddened. Linden Lab as a corporation is distancing itself from the community, to the point where… I truly believe there is no community voice in the decisions they are making, that they are putting on a show after already making the decisions and the meetings are nothing more than public relations exercises to give an impression of caring.

I know this is not the first time I have planned my departure but I am tired. I think I truly hate SL, I mean really HATE it. With the new emerald viewer you can’t even hide from friends without them knowing. The new beta viewer is outside my userbility and I am just to tired, I can’t do it anymore.

I am sorry everyone who I hurt with this decision, I have been dragging myself around for months in fear of how to do this but theres just no other way to say it. I hate what SL has become, and as much as I love you all. I can’t commit to being here.

I have known so many of you for so long however, and because of that, if you require my contacts to get hold of me outside SL. I will be more than willing to give those to people I trust. I have been truly blessed by my experiences in Second Life, and I love you all so much. Without you all I would not be alive today, and I truly mean that. You all have pulled me through so much.

Will post more as I figure it all out.

(Attempt 43)
