We’ve done it. There’s officially a full decade’s worth of stories and history that define the city our characters have come to love and hate. More importantly, together, we’ve also built over TEN years’ worth of community, friendship, and family that will long outlast the prims and textures.
Around this time, every year, I take a moment to reflect on the things we’ve accomplished over the year, and share a fresh vision for one we’re starting. More often than not, like this year (lol), I’m reminded of my favorite comic strip that I’ve plastered on the inside of the Observer office… we started the year strong with some housekeeping updated, then started rolling our first phase of updates with the HPD to shake up the law and criminal dynamics in the sim.
What we did in 2015
“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.”
The following is the current roadmap for 2016:
2016 will be a year where we get back to basics and work hard to eliminate the tedious aspects of role-play and management. With a heavy focus on story and the improving the overall experience in the sim, we can expect powerful results.
After 10 years of Second Life, I still find myself drawn to planning, improving, and innovating. I know Espi and I are moved and inspired by the creativity found daily here - from perusing the Flickr pool, reading threads, to processing group proposals and character applications. It’s mind blowing, really.
We also have an AMAZING team of admins, GMs, moderators, mentors, and group leaders who have dedicated a tremendous amount of time and effort. Day in and out, they work with new players, diffuse OOC issues, and ensure that the community is healthy. Then there are the players - a group of individuals from across the world who write and share stories, and above all, have created an atmosphere of friendship.
We should be very proud of the community and reputation we created together.
Happy new year!
