I tried to look for you but I couldn't find you.

I'm not on this page :P

As for in SL, I can't get on often these days. One of the major negatives of being a truck driver is rarity of decent internet. When I am on, I'm usually found in either Trotsdale or Luskwood.

Time to reset my SL password. My username is the same as here.

Haven't been on 2L for some time.

It is fun. Never could figure most of it out though.

Hey, I'm on a comic strip!

Yep! Seems you've found yet another place to throw a party, Pinkie Pie :D

I've known about Second Life for a number of years. But, I never actually tried it. For one, I was stuck on dial-up at the time. Also, it seemed very commercialized.

However, I am a big fan of Machinima and independent animation. And I've seen some beautiful and inspiring machinima and animation done using Second Life. Some of it is jaw-dropping or weird (or both).

As a massive online virtual reality environment, I find Second Life interesting. However, I disapprove of Linden Lab's Terms of Service. To explain: Outrage grows over new Second Life terms

Any content uploaded to SL becomes the property of Linden Lab. And 3D content on SL is a huge business today. It's fine if people only upload content they create. But, there are dishonest people selling others' content. And it sounds like Linden Lab is turning a blind eye. (As Headkase put it they, "made piracy an easy money making opportunity".) I'm told it can be a hassle for 3D artists to convince Linden Lab that they created a certain item and get them to remove it.

I've seen a number of 3D content creators on ShareCG and elsewhere remove their free content because of how some were selling their stuff on SL. (Headkase stated that this burned out his generosity.) And others have added terms to forbid uploading their stuff to SL.

Beyond that, it sounds like SL may be getting competition. There's OpenSim, Open Cobalt and the Avination virtual world. And this 2014 article talks about how Linden is developing an entirely new virtual world:
Is Linden Lab abandoning Second Life?

The article mentions that "there was only a small team left to continue to support Second Life and that the majority of Linden Lab developers were at work on the new platform."

Yeah, SL has long been known for 3d model piracy. I have even found some of my own work stolen and in their market for sale. Because of Second Life and Lover's Lab (another thief) I started embedding my name in the mesh itself on anything I make available to the public.

Fun! This was a lot of fun.

I've been in and out of SL for years! Currently, I'm not active in it but everything Centcomm showed here is absolutely possible in SL. :)

Cent, I know this can wear you out if you don't take a break every now and then. I just took a 2 week break myself awhile back.

Hurry back. We'll miss you.

Before I go investing time and energy into something new, I got a dumb question... Is Second Life like an online SIMS, or is it closer to IMVU?

And, as for the break! If it's Vacation, you've earned it.... if it's Health related, as I said before, Take care of yourself, entertaining us comes second. and I think I speak for your entire fan-base with that.
HiFranc 1st May 2015, 1:23 AM edit delete reply

Of the two - it's closer to IMVU.

Considering the start up dates, it could be argued that IMVU is more like Second Life. Of course it claims more active users, even if it launched later.
