Your World your Imagination - was a good slogan back then. I am a builder in SL and it is basically still the whole reason why i am in SL. To build together with friends, sometimes derp around - play with physics or other stuff.

I would love to create big landscapes to "play" in. But for that i would have to be rich. Paying hundreds of US Dollars for a relatively small and weak Server to handle a tiny sim. While in other games such small servers would costs you a few bucks and can run big maps.

For me personally SL is becoming a thing that more and more frustrates me and saddens me.


I would really like to be in the world in the ad but it is not SL. SL is seriuosly outdated.

We the elders, the ancients of SL should be utialized as promoters for new residents. LL should produce small YT 3-6 minute with the work of thoses ancient citizens who has something positively to expose as attractive and inspirational for newcomers.
We are the proof of and for the NEXT Generation. We are the first,the best and the last unless I don't incorporate us into the advertising future.

Jean Ascher

If Creativity is the main focus inworld, LL should work hard to minimize all time lag and rezz lag and expand the graphic to 2 or even 3 screens. Likewise..You cannot completely control the external world ( users GC and speed) — environment. It is the creativity of the inner world that is most subject to your direction because there your personality is so largely liberated from the fetters of the laws of antecedent causation. There is associated with personality a limited sovereignty of will.
This is the problem: If freewill man is endowed with the powers of creativity in the inner man, then must we recognize that freewill creativity embraces the potential of freewill unlimit. Inner creativity contributes to ennoblement of character through personality integration and selfhood unification. It is forever true: The past is unchangeable; only the future can be changed by the ministry of the present creativity of the inner self. LL must expand their concept of cosmic consciousness and provide the residents of SL options to expand various levels of beauty, goodness and truths.

There's still an "image" problem around what Second Life is & how to play it or live it...

Apparently this sort of video is causing concern at the Labs - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6-3uLaCLQ4

It would seem that the new user experience is still not hitting the mark, the "portals" at the starter area seem to confuse folks nor does there seem to be much in explaining about L$... Watch the video - it's tragically funny in that some 17 years later - Second Life still can't communicate to new players what they "do"


People need to go the club noir and other places you do need compter with good graphics but still see many things even on low graphics. Go to fantasy fair and fantasy sims people must not get out much I seen the the beauty.
