First off, Congrats on the rez day, Hamlet!
secondly, here is the link to this page or how do I get them to email me the information?


where, not "here"


"Game mechanics that subtly nudge players to be more regularly active in the virtual world." Why would you assume these metrics would make people more prone to play more I think more than likely to encourage people to play less it's like seeing the calorie count after a thanksgiving dinner.

Thanks Ilsa! I literally just got the e-mail from updates at mc.secondlife.com which Linden Lab uses to send out occasional event announcements. They may just be A/B testing this with select users, will look into it.

These started months ago, and have nothing to do with Phil.

My 16th ready was yesterday, and I didn't get one. I'm bummed.

Chris Nova

Do you even game? Those are statistics, not achievements. 😂

Velvet Littlepaws

I'd like to see mine now. I may not be around in 10 to 16 years or even on Second Life.


These 'milestone' emails started many months ago. I got one on my 15th Rez Day in October 2021. That was over 5 months ago.

Limdem Labs spying on me with rays mutter... Nah been sending for a while. So this is the sort of thing that motivates 'gamerz'? A note once a year? They have longer attention spans than I thought :)
