Discussions: Of Alts and New Year's!

In the past two Thursdays, despite the holiday season, LnL has gathered its dicussion crew and did something we do so well... discussed! It was a lot of fun, as always!

The first Thursday, it was all about alts. Why have an alt? To test permissions in creations, to explore different aspects of ourselves, to be able to work without interruptions, to play HUD games, to create traffic (as questionable as this could be, in the opionion of some), for Roleplaying, to backup things, to be vaults for money, or even to hide from someone or spy on someone. Oh, and let's not forget griefing! Some alts are nothing but empty beings, but others gain a life of their own and could actually become more important than the primary avatar. The group agreed, that regardless of the characteristic of the alt, it must be very stressful to manage in proficient manner multiple alts! Whichever the case may be, SL is a fascinating world with multiple and enriching experiences, and alts are a part of that!

This Thursday, LnL met to make a sort of a balance of 2011 in SL. The group talked about the new viewers, mesh, physics (which caused a lot of laughter when the discussion went to things like flapping and bouncing, and I will say no more!), joining the teen and the adult grid, modifications in the Dashboard, and some of the unresolved problems such as lag, sim crossing issues, group chat/conference borking, and the creation of SL Realms. Everyone agreed that, as interesting as covering new grounds is, old problems should be fixed first. The 2012 wishlist included no lag (wishful thinking, yes, we know...!) or a more user-friendly viewer, among other personal plans such as learning mesh and enlarging business ventures. As London said: "Whatever the New Year brings us, there's a bright future ahead, new experiences, new friends, new beautiful moments. This past year was full of them too, and the only thing we can say here at LNL is thanks to all of you for being so wonderful. It was a joy to share these moments with you guys!! We wish you a very happy 2012 and hope to see you around many times!! Thank you for your participation, you have been awesome!! :) ".

Of Culture in SL!

Last Thursday, LnL hosted its weekly discussion. London was the moderator and the topic chosen "Where did Culture go?". In the group's opinion, there seems to be an imbalance between those who look for culture events in SL and those who would rather choose something like shopping, dancing, building, etc. Culture options seem to be varied and plenty; concerts, art exhibits, readings, discussions, libraries, museums, theater, ballet (despite the technical limitations of SL which cause huge problems to this type of presentation), even clothing styles and Roleplaying. The main problem related to culture in SL is that it does cost a considerable amount of money to set up/maintain a cultural event/sim and without Linden Labs financial support (something everyone agreed to be vital) it becomes very difficult to finance culture in the long run. One of the aspects the group focused on were the inworld classes. Some of the "old-timers" thought the number of classes offered in Events decreased and no new topics were added. Some of the newest members to SL defended that even old topics are needed for new residents and that the issue was the lack of time to go to all the classes! An interesting point raised by the group was whether cultural events have less advertising options (and less visibility due to the new Maturity Rating criteria in the dashboard), resulting in a smaller number of people attending them. One solution offered was to centralize cultural events and have them available 24/7 so that all timezones could benefit from their existence. Food for thought! It was a great discussion, with a fantastic group! Join us next week for a new topic in LnL's Discussion Area at 2pm SLT!

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Discussion today - "Where did Culture go?"

Where did Culture go? No, I don't want to go shopping! No I don't want to have a business! I just want to participate in interesting events! Or learn something new! Where are they?! Is Second Life turning into a massive mall? Is there room for culture? Join us for a lively discussion about this hot topic in LnL's Discussion area at 2pm SLT! Looking forward to seeing you! ~London Junkers (moderator)

Featuring LnL: Cemeteries, Pianos, Dungeons and Stars!

There is so much to explore in LnL! Today we will guide you through a few of the darker corners. When you land at LnL's main Landing Point, click the Teleport System (shieldlike prim with the LnL logotype) and choose Cemetery.

This earie place, covered in mist, has a scary guardian armed with a scythe. Beware not to get... scythed! To the left and to the right of the Cemetery, you can find two downward staircases, that will take you to the Gothic labyrinthic tunnels.

You can also access the tunnels and Gothic rooms by entering the Mausoleum!

Now, here is a challenge! Left, right, right or left?? Try to find the Piano Corner (pic above) where you can become a master pianist in an instant (hehe!) and the dangerously looking Dungeon (pic below). It seems it has been... visited... before with tragic results...!

To end the tour today, try to find the Observatorium (pic below). It's a round-shaped varanda, where you can sit and look at the amazing sea view. Enjoy its calmness! The tea is already brewing! :)
LinkDrop by LnL and explore about! Have fun! You can drop us a line/comment any time as well! Share your opinions, ideas, suggestions!

Featuring LnL: Of Castles, Cathedrals, Towers and Discussions!

When you arrive at LnL, click the Teleport System (shieldlike prim with the LnL logotype) and choose Cathedral. You will be taken to the highest level of LnL, right above the store. In this area you can find several important elements. Let's take a tour!

On one side, the Lenormand Castle. This is one of two Gothic castles that look like private property with their front doors closed... but these are public spaces. The Lenormand Castle has, as the name indicates, a room with a Lenormand deck for you to enjoy and perhaps even take a glimpse at the future! ;)

On the other side, there is the Sleeping Warrior Castle, also public and with a cosy room for nice get-togethers by the fireplace. :) Both castles link to the store underneath.

Another fundamental element is the Discussion area, where LnL holds discussions amongst a friendly group of people. Old and new friends join us every week for a new topic! These discussions are open to the whole grid. Above the Discussion Area, there is the Tower, also accessible by clicking the Teleport System or simply by doing the magic SL flying! The Tower has an amazing view over the whole complex and it is quite a fun place to sit down while others try to figure out why they spot you on the mini-map but can't see you anywhere! ;)

Finally the pièce de résistance, the Cathedral. This building was created to represent LnL in the SL8B (Second Life 8th Birthday) and has now found its rightful place in Mare Serenitatis. You can sit inside and enjoy the quietness while you IM friends or sort through your inventory!

Drop by LnL for a visit and let us know what you think of these areas! Enjoy!

Discussion to be postponed this week!

As you know, LnL is undergoing a lot of changes. Some we need to address quicker than expected, so this Thursday's discussion will be postponed a week. We hope to see you soon!

Featuring LnL: The Caves!

Another area to explore in the new LnL is the Cave! You'll find some surprising hidden corners like the waterfalls where you can sit and enjoy some quietness. :) Drop by for a visit!

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

Featuring LnL: The Studio and the Map Room!

As you arrive to Mare Serenitatis, click the teleporter (shieldlike prim with the LnL logotype) and choose Studio! Today, LnL introduces you to the Studio, a wonderful place where you can sit and enjoy a quiet fireside chat with friends or someone special. This room is in a way the heart of the Gothic Labyrinth and the Caves area. There is a door to the left and a door to the right!

Let's see if you find the Map Room (above)! Left or right? From one of the exits in the Studio, and a bit of walking (beware of any lost souls lurking in the dark!), you'll get to this room that, look closely, is one of the multiple entrances to the Caves! Explore about and have fun! :)

Sunday, December 4, 2011

Featuring LnL: Ballroom and Chapel!

Today, the featured locations are the Ballroom (above) and the Chapel (below). The Ballroom has a direct TP to it when you click the Teleport System (round shiledlike prim with the LnL logo on it) and opens a lot of opportunities for parties. It's a large space with danceballs and a DJ booth! There is plenty of room to dance and have fun! Oh, and don't worry about the dragon. He's ok! ;)
The Chapel is a small area especially prepared for smaller groups, for readings, conferences or any type of meetings. It's a large enough space to be able to sit several avatars and small enough to provide a certain privacy as well!

Of a discussion at LnL, profiles and a pinch of salt!

Last Thursday, the discussion took place at the new LnL location - Mare Serenitatis! The topic at hand was "Profiles, passport of our identity!". The group started by sharing how important their own profiles were. For some a profile was a means of sharing a bit of information about themselves (although most would not add too much personal RL info nor personal photos). Others completed it once and never really felt the need to update it. On the other hand, those present thought that others' profiles are quite interesting as they give us a bit of a sneak peek into the person behind the avatar. Now, what to put in the profile? There's a difficult decision! Some of the discussers update their photos quite often (and that made everyone agree that they probably in the list of Linden Lab's most loved texture uploaders!), others stick to the first pic or simply update when there is a significant change in their looks. Another classic of profiles are quotes, which some find a bit exaggerated, as well as the threats to our SL integrity (talk about exaggeration)! Some profiles are left totally empty. Why? An alt, maybe (although some alts have very complete profiles, showing different sides of that resident). Or perhaps the person is new to SL and doesn't quite know what to do with it. A suggestion was made to add a voice sample to the profile! Interesting! However, perhaps it would not work properly with profiles of RP avatars, and then again! Online profiles weren't that much of a success amongst the discussers, being too similar to existing social networks... And time was up! To conclude, profiles are a fun wayof getting to know someone or they are a source of aggravation! Whichever the case, always take them with a pinch of salt! ;) Join us next week!

Featuring LnL: New Rezz Area!

New and old residents know how convenient it is to have a place to open a box or adjust a prim on the spur of the moment. But where?? In most stores you simply cannot drop the box on the floor and you have no posestands. Sooo, LnL has decided to create a Rezz Area open to all, plus posestand and a sit-down area for any company you might bring to rest a bit while you are busy! If you look carefully, there is an arrow in the pic. You will find those arrows around the store; they are your taxi to the Rezz Area. Just click on the arrow and "Teleport". To get back to the store, same process! You can also use the Teleport System (round shieldlike prim with the LnL logo) to choose other locations like the Romantic Garden or the Caves! There is plenty to explore!

And... a discussion today at 2pm SLT!!

Looking forward to seeing you! London Junkers (Moderator)

WOW! New LnL store!!

London and I are happy to announce that the new LnL Store is officially open! London did an extraordinary job building the whole setup for days and days! It looks awesome! The Main Collection and the Gothic Collection are in the main building (on the photo, 1st and 2nd floors) as well as the Tshirt Collection (2nd floor). On the left and right side of the photo, outside, you can see two buildings. This is where the Kimono Collection is! Above and below the store there are a lot of areas you can explore! Above you have the LnL Lounge where we hold our weekly discussions, plus two Gothic Castles and a Cathedral. All areas are public! Below the store you can have fun exploring, and getting lost *evil grin*, in the Gothic Labyrinth of rooms and corridors, lounge areas and secret areas. Also, further down below, you have the Grottos, a fantastic maze of twists and turns with magical corners where you can sit to have a quiet chat with a special one! At ground level (use the teleport system for an easier access), there is the Garden! And wow, it has several romantic areas you can enjoy connected by paths that will help guide you through the whole area. We hope you drop by for a visit... or two, or three! Come on over! We welcome you!

Money's ups and downs at the discussion!

Yesterday's discussion at LnL's Lounge was a lot of fun! A small group gathered on Thanksgiving day to talk about the value of money in SL. Money is power. Buyers and sellers relate to each other through money, it can buy us clothes but not beauty, it can buy us luxuries but not happiness. London, the moderator, kick-started the discussion by asking whether SL would be more interesting without its currency. There was a common thought, money makes things fascinating in Second Life, it adds to realism, to the excitement of purchasing things. If there were no money, there wouldn't be any commerce. But what do we really need money for? There are so many freebies. The truth is that money puts the market into gear creating opportunities. These sometimes shape excessive consumerism though... The group then went on to talking about the differences between putting money into SL (Premium accounts) and not doing so (Basic accounts); although Basic accounts allow for quite a comfortable living in SL, Premium ones offer other possibilities. Now, with all this talk about money, it was inevitable to mention the best ways to make money in this virtual world! Buying, selling or renting land, being a musician, a model, a teacher, a counsellor. There are many options, however nowadays it seems to be a lot more difficult to make money than in the past. To end the discussion, London asked what we would do if we had all the Linden dollars in the world! Some said they would give it away in tips or to charities, others said they would buy a whole set of sims! All great plans! :) Time was up! To conclude, money controls many people; the more they have the greedier they get, the less they have, the more they want. The real wealth though is freedom, friendship, health, love. So if you can spare a buck, give a gift to someone you love because that will bring you the best richness there is, HAPPINESS!! Join us next week for a new topic! Thursday at 2pm SLT in LnL's Lounge!

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Discussion tonight "What is the value of Money?"

Money is a medium of exchange, a medium of power. Buyers and sellers relate to each other through money, it can buy us costumes but not beauty, it can buy us books but not wisdom, it can buy us luxuries but not happiness. So...what is the value of money? Is it really necessary for us to live a happy Second Life? Join us for a lively discussion about this hot topic in LnL's Lounge at 2pm SLT! Looking forward to seeing you! London Junkers (moderator)

This discussion was all about looks!

Yesterday, at LnL's Lounge, the weekly discussion took place with a very interesting (as always I must add!) group of attendees. The topic promised to be interesting -- Hey, how do I look?! -- about the way people choose to portrait themselves showing a lot about who we are in Real Life (RL) and expect from SL. The group, under London's lively moderation, started by talking about what determines the way we choose to look in SL. For some it is how they wish they looked in RL, for others the need to express creativity, the places they go to, what they want to do. Just having the possibility to try out change, in all its possible variations, is one of the most captivating features of SL. It was interesting to see that many of the discussers don't feel the need to change all the time, being rather comfortable in one look, while others felt the need to be true shapeshifters, showing different sides of themselves and, in a way, promoting the notion that there is beauty in all types of "looks". The way each resident looks in SL strongly determines their SL experience as it reflects who you are influencing others' reactions towards you. To conclude, "looks" are important, both in SL and in RL. The way we "play" with the possibilities SL puts at our disposal opens the door to fun, entertainment and a bit of reality mixed in it! ;) Join us next week in LnL's Lounge, Thursday at 2pm SLT for a new discussion topic!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Discussion day tomorrow!!

Hey, how do I look? - how much attention would we get in SL if we looked like we do in RL?! The way we decide to portrait ourselves shows a lot about who we are in RL and what we expect from Second Life. What do you think? Do you agree? Or do you find this statement a total nonsense? Join us for this hopefully controversial discussion in the LnL Lounge, at 2pm SLT! London Junkers (moderator)

Last Thursday's discussion!

"Me. Myself, my avie and I!" was last Thursday's topic at LnL's discussion. For many people, Second Life creates an alternative reality, but is that reality creating a false sense of fulfilment and accomplishment? Are we becoming our avatar, reducing our life to a set of irreal experiences and choosing a dreamlike world over our RL world? Are we real or are we avies? It is true that Second Life could, for some, create a false sense of "reality" and even accomplishment, but it is also a fact that many of SL's residents learn very real new skills through this virtual world, things like interaction, communication, empathy, or simply how to use image manipulation sofwares. After discussing what the concept of "reality", which proved to be extremely complex, a few discussers debated the notion that by being/staying in SL, people got a somewhat irreal notion of who/what they were; some defended that SL is as much a reality as any aspect of RL. Some researchers defend that a large amount of people who access virtual platforms tend to suffer from depression and isolation, yet many of those present felt that that is an image the Media has created; the amount of people who have those conditions is proportional to the same group of people in RL. There is a fine line between avie and RL person. Some try to separate them as much as possible, others get so immersed in who/what their avies are, the way they look, etc. that that overflows into RL. The avatar becomes, in a way, one of many masks (not in a negative way) we wear daily, one possible "face". Our time was up so London concluded the discussion stating that "Second Life can be very attractive, and we can spend a lot of hours enjoying it, but we must never forget that in order to play the game, we first have to be alive, so let's have balance, enjoy both worlds and be as happy as we can be. Everything in the correct dosage is good for our well being!". Join us next week for a new topic, same day, same place, same time - Thursday, LnL Lounge at 2pm SLT!

Last Thursday's discussion was not a ... game!

Last Thursday's discussion sure had a hot topic! Is Second Life just a game? London, the moderator, kick started the "hostilities" by asking what kind of information we had about SL before we created an account. Some had no information at all, some thought it was a game with levels. What brought most to SL was curiosity, boredom or the need to try something new and different. Most mentioned the important influence of either a mentor or a friendly resident who helped overcome the steep learning curve. Then the group moved on to discussing whether SL was "just a game"! Goals, levels, score, a beginning and an end, all these concepts are part of the definition of game for many. Yet, SL doesn't necessarily have those, so the group did not reach a consensus in considering SL a game. Another interesting topic debated was the fact that some people strongly separate RL and SL. However some discussers were of the opinion that that is extremely difficult because there will always be a part of our "self" present in the way we experience SL. Relationships or SL becoming a source of RL income contribute to residents not considering Second Life a game at all. It was a fun and diverse discussion, but it was time to conclude. Regardless of the way we enjoy SL, or the fact that we consider it a game or not, important is to experience SL's rich range of possibilities and share it with your friends! Join us next Thursday in LnL's Lounge at 2pm SLT for a new topic related to this amazing world we call Second Life!

Tomorrow's Discussion "To Game or not to Game!!"

Is Second Life just a game?! Just the mentioning of this idea is enough to create various reactions, some do agree while others get very annoyed about it.

A Treat and Trick discussion last week!

Trick or Treat! Seasons in SL! That was the topic of last Thursday's discussion. It was a fun and relaxed time with a fantastic group of people and lots of laughs! The group started by sharing some of the "treats" of SL in the form of places we could enjoy, such as The Library of Alexandria, the Inspire Space Park, Tempura, the Gardens of Apollo, The Wastelands or the DaVinci Gardens, some of which already disappeared, unfortunately. These places shared the uniqueness of offering us the best of SL. To add to the places, the group moved on to share some of the best moments they experienced in SL, such as meeting and talking to people at discussions like these *wink wink* , going to concerts and exhibits, building, exploring, sailing, hunting, and learning new things (some mentioned cybersex, but that doesn't count! Aham...! lol). Some of the "tricks" (not so nice aspects of SL), in the opinion of the group, were the fact that SL is so ephemeral, fantastic places disappear, wonderful people stop coming inworld, and of course the usual array of nutheads, a.k.a., griefers who tend to contribute to a bit of stress in SL. As the discussion came close to its end, the moderator guided the group to talk a bit about seasons (festivities, fashion, etc.) in SL. Most discussers enjoyed the sense of having seasons (and weather) in SL, despite the fact that in some cases these are used as an excuse for commercial purposes. Dressing up for a specific season, and Halloween is big in SL, didn't seem like a redundancy to those present; they found it to be very interesting and amusing even, being creativity a keypoint in SL! To conclude, SL has very interesting aspects and at the same time there are things we don't like but all in all it is a wonderful platform worth searching, providing fantastic experiences, friendships and fun. So open the map, search the destination guide, teleport and get ready for a great time! See you Thursday at LnL's Lounge for a new topic, this time a very controversial one "Is SL a game?" !! Oh, and this week, due to the Daylight Savings Time, the discussion will be at 3pm SLT. As soon as the time changes in SLT, we'll get back to our regular 2pm SLT timeslot! :)
