SL Newser: Commentary: Should Bad News Not be Told?- Bixyl Shuftan Reporting..


This summer, we got contacted by a reader concerning some articles we were reading. It wasn't about accuracy, but rather the content. We had published some articles about residents being less than pleasant to others, and she expressed worry that we were making the Grid less attractive to those who hadn't yet tried Second Life, and would be steered away from giving it a try.

SL Newser: Most Third-Party Linden Exchange Services Close, Only Podex and AnsheX Remain-Bixyl Shuftan Reporting...




In the aftermath of Linden Labs changing it's Terms of Service concerning Third Party exchangers of Linden dollars, just about all have closed their doors. A number gave statements saying they  were wary of the Lab's wrath, such as the DX Exchange, "the TOS gives us a 30 day period … However, we so realize that with blocking our avatars Linden Lab can disable our business within seconds. We also realize that we put our clients at risk to lose their Lindens in case we annoy Linden Lab." CrossWorlds stated that they would complete orders that had already been placed. But most were no longer making new transactions.

SL Newser: Perri Prinz’s Green Meadows Club




One club that's been around for a few years that was built as a tribute to classic rock is Green Meadows, formerly known as Xanadu.


 Run by Perri Prinz and RECoyote Mindes, the club has events a few times every week. But as good as the music is, Perri being an expert of the music of the time period, the club is well designed to the point of being a work of art, in addition to a nearby building having a gallery of science-fiction/fantasy art. Recently, Grease Coakes went to Perri and Rec to ask about the club.

SL Newser: News and Commentary: Real-Life News Article on Avatar Clothing Isn't News- Bixyl Shuftan Reporting...

This is news? At least that's what I was thinking when I first heard of the study, featured in an ABC article (and other sources). Canadian researchers "stalked through" Second Life observing over four hundred avatars "for several weeks." Their conclusion: females wear less clothing.

"Well DUH! Thank you Captain Obvious."

SL Newser: Judge Issues Summary Judgement in Amaretto vs Ozimals Suit- Bixyl Shuftan Reporting...

 
 

 One wouldn't expect a bunny and a horse to be enemies. But it was almost two years ago in which the companies that make them in Second Life ended up in a fight that reached real life court. For well over a year, nothing was heard about the case between Ozimals and Amaretto. Finally earlier this month, the judge over the case made a summary judgement. What did he rule, and who's claiming victory in "Bunneh vs Horsie?"
