Linden Lab has resumed the habit of social get-togethers with SL users. It’s a welcome move, and the events tend to be very popular. Since getting things rolling again, the Lab has selected the venue – which so far has been “Mole Town”, aka Meauxle Bureaux (see my report on the last gathering).

However, for the next get-together, they’re looking to do things differently. In a blog post published on Friday, May 8th, Xiola Linden is asking for venue ideas from residents. The post reads in full:

It’s just about in-world meetup time, and since we’re in the habit of sharing some of our favourite spots from the Destination Guide, this weekend, we wanted to flip the script and find out from you what spot you think is one of the best to visit for our next in-world meetup.

Share your recommendations in this forum thread – links to Destination Guide entry or SLURLS are best – and we’ll pick one to have our next in-world meetup.

The next meetup is planned for Thursday, May 14th at 1 PM SLT, so get your recommendations in soon!

As always, if you have a region or location that you would like to show off – be sure to share it, and we always love to see pics of your adventures on the Official Second Life Flickr page.

While there are no guidelines on what might be considered acceptable, any venue put forward should probably be rated Moderate at best, or General. Ideally, it should also have plenty of space for people to mingle – so it’s probably best not to suggest your back garden (unless your back garden happens to be an entire region, of course!).

There can be upwards of 50-60 people wanting to attend, so full regions are really the best, and those which offer things to do  – dancing, music, a bit of exploring – might well be appreciated. And do keep in mind the potential impact having an army of Lindens and residents might have on the regular users of any venue, should they all suddenly turn up!

Of course – if you do have a great venue of your own to offer which could fit the bill, this could be an ideal time to drop its name and SLurl into the forum thread.

As Xiola points out, the next meet-up is scheduled for Thursday, May 14th, at 13:00 SLT – that’s just a week away, and the Lab will need a little time to select a place and get the word out – so if you’re going to make a suggestion, best to get it in sooner rather than later!
