In addition, our donation kiosks are now transferred over to Child’s Play Charity. They have announced this on their website at You can learn more about the organization and their efforts there.

  1. If one gives more than a casual look, Bay City is plenty of curios and pretty places, and with its roads and streets, it could be the Blake Sea of road vehicles. I had some fun with my bike, besides the usual sim crossings. It is a wide area were people could play an urban RP too. Instead it is a ghost town. Hardly ever anyone around, even in the “community center”. Elsewhere in SL, London square is always plenty of people. They could give a look at it. There are a couple of clubs, one of them is populated just by bots. The other one is “Soul Vibrations”, that looks popular, but placed in a side/corner, and I don’t know how many explored around. Infohubs in Bay City area aren’t so popular, and there are less people compared to few years ago, but how many newbie landing on Moose Beach (current traffic today: ~7k) on in Hau Koda (~3k) realized there was a whole city next to them? Or that the infohub in Hau Koda is really an airport and you can rez airplanes? The runway is half hidden from inside and there is no indication of the rez zone. There is a dock in Mhindepinde, where you can rez a boat. I think you can navigate a bit around Sansara from there and reach Heterocera. It is nothing like Blake Sea, nor the little railroad is comparable to Heterocera, but why don’t give newbies a better chance to notice these things? When I visit Bay City, I have a feeling of desolation and missed opportunities.
