SL9B is Happening!

 

Participate in the SL9B Community Event!

It’s that time of year when we celebrate the anniversary of Second Life!

This year Linden Lab isn’t sponsoring the birthday celebrations so we thought we’d do it ourselves! We will have 10 sims of builds and stages and fun and freebies and we hope you will be part of the festivities. You can volunteer to create your own celebratory plot, Exhibitors are invited to show off their community and its special nature to others.

You might prefer to join the team of Greeters welcoming all the visitors and handing out gifts, helping find locations, mentoring any newcomers who might need extra help and making the party happen. Maybe you’d rather join the rock concert atmosphere and be a Stage Manager or you are a DJ or Live Performer and would like to share your talent from one of our stages. Others of you might be interested in Security or Public Relations or want to share your passion and knowledge hosting a discussion or presentation in our Auditorium. We’re looking for your energetic participation in all of these roles.

You are invited to signup for one or more of these areas (yes, you can volunteer for everything if you like). Please keep the following points in mind:

  • This event will run from June 18th through June 24th.
  • The sims will be rated General – so please recognize the need to keep your enthusiasm within the bounds of the Terms of Service.
  • Orientation and Training will be provided for many of the roles. Expect that some time will be required prior to the event for that purpose.
  • Make sure you have read the Event Policies before completing the forms.
  • There are four sign up forms; Volunteers (Greeters, Stage Managers, Security, Public Relations); Performers (DJ’s and Live);  Exhibitors and Auditorium Bookings. You must complete each form applicable to your interests (if you wish to participate in all the roles then you must fill out and submit each of the forms).
  • If you have any problems with the forms please send a message to SL9BVolunteerCoordinator@gmail.com

Thank you for Volunteering! We look forward to having you be part of this great event.

    The text on the pages could be bigger for us partially visually impaired folks

  2. To better read pale grey on black (a favorite of bloggers it seems) I right click and select all which make it more readable. To enlarge the type on a web page hold down the Ctrl key and do a mouse scroll.

    I hope that helps you London……….

  3. So awesome you guys, congratulations and thank you for making this happen. Who knows what LL had in mind, but the COMMUNITY effort you’ve created certainly is what an anniversary celebration should be all about.

    Oh, hahaha, and I sort of just wrote about virtual community! 😛

    As you’ll see, the blog uses clean, easy black type on white! 🙂

    Seriously though London, it’s so important for you to keep pointing these things out. Sometimes chauvinism can come from some deeply held irrational belief, but often it just comes from ignorance or lack of education. A virtual community like SL is a wonderful place to educate, to inform, and to engage in a powerful working toward inclusiveness.

    I do like black type on white for legibility, but to be fair, I happen to also prefer it aesthetically. For me it’s just a less heavy, cleaner, clearer, more visually and conceptually buoyant experience. haha.

    I’m with Pituca though, if it’s reasonable, rather than huge type on a page, I do like Ctrl-mouse wheel or Ctrl = (or Cmd on Mac) to make type larger or smaller. It seems to work on most browsers. I actually use it a lot when I teach since our data projector has a smaller resolution than my normal screen, so I constantly move between Ctrl- to see more of the material and Ctl+ to read more easily.

    So, lets build an inclusive community, yay!

    AND… Thanks so much you guys for making this party happen!!!

  4. Sounds really exciting.
