We talk a lot about community in Second Life. It’s a concept that touches on many areas, be it the locations and people where we opt to establish a virtual home, the role-play or other groups where we spend much of our in-world time and a part of what keeps us logging-in.
Community touches on many different aspects of discussion about SL, from how the platform is promoted to the world at large, through new user sign-ups and user retention through to possible directions the platform and Linden Lab should take to achieve and maintain real growth for SL.
Now Prim Perfect wants to hear from you about the topic and concept of community in Second Life, with a view to exploring feedback as a part of the Prim Perfect interactive installation at the SL11B Community Celebration.
Whether you have views on how SL should be advertised or on matters of user retention, the training which might be given to new users – or both of these together, Prim Perfect would like to hear from you.
Most of all, they’d like to explore what “community” means to you: what is important about SL? What keeps you logging-in? What type of community would you like to live in? What do think a community in Second Life needs to remain vibrant?
If you’d like you views to for a part of the installation, please complete the form below, reproduced here on behalf of Prim Perfect (note you are not limited to the size of the text boxes when responding to the questions).
