Reddit is an (Unofficial) Sandbox Island in Second Life
In the Northern reaches of Second Life's grid there is an island in the sea called Reddit, and as you might have guessed, it's an open-build sandbox inspired by the content sharing site of the same name. An SL Redditor named Mistyriver recently reported it was there, and I can confirm that it is, and that it is full of Reddit memes. Spotted: A giant Pokémon, several WWI biplanes, and a headquarters with Reddit's upvote/downvote sign (right next to the dinosaur skeleton). Also sighted: Several furries, some in small spaceships. The map square itself shows its Reddit flavors, alien and all: Click here to see it.
Now you're likely wondering if this Reddit island is actually an official site owned and operated by Reddit the company itself, and I can also confirm that this is not so. I showed Reddit General Manager Erik Martin this island called Reddit floating in the Second Life sea, and he said it was the first he'd ever seen it. I then asked if he had an official comment on its existence, and this is all he had to say:
It does not look like that, but then again, SL itself pretty much has an equivalent to all those regions. (And often, several of them smushed together in the same place.) And all else being equal, Reddit island is not a bad place to visit. You may even meet some of the friendly Reddittors who run it. One of them has an avatar called Hissyfits. (Yes.) "People will undoubtedly question the intellectual property issues regarding the sim," Hissyfits tells. "We have been in contact with Jena at Reddit and they have not voiced any desire for us to discontinue using the trademark. They in fact, are fairly intrigued with Second Life."
