News In The News Stream

Been a bit of a short amount of news due to being relatively busy with the "having to do stuff to live indoors and eat every day thing"...regardless I have some upcoming stuff I want to do in regards to Second Life and what not.
First thing on the list is...of course, CCS, the goddamn update thats taken two years is nearly completed. I expect to be ready to roll with this sometime in May barring major problems.
Second thing on the list is before I actually release the update, I want to have a closed door CCS Community Meeting with all our long term sim owners and a few key CCS players from each of their communities to have a little chat about what my ideas for CCS going forward in 2014 are, and how I feel they're beneficial to the players and the games fairness and longevity going forward into the future.
Thirdly on the list is mostly down to the CoLA folks, but I'm going to be in process of a full mesh overhaul of CoLA, SMD, Pasademon Point and North Gate soon...this will be one of those things I'll basically hammer in all at once once the assets are done. Some GMs have proposed doing an interim event which causes some pretty widespread destruction to the sim prior to replacing it with a far more up to date build as far as current gen tech goes....so if you have some thoughts on that, feel free to bring them up in the forums.
Target Date for the Sim Owner/Long Term Player - Community Meeting I'd like to shoot for is : 10 MAY 2014 @ 1400(2PM) Hours PST(SL Time).
Format for invitation to this round table is going to be simple. If you are NOT an administrator on an active CCS sim, you will not be invited UNLESS an administrator that has scheduled themselves to be there has listed you as an invited player advocate.
Simple way to get involved in the CCS Community Meeting is for a sim owner/admin to send me a notecard in Second Life, with the subject: MEETING DELEGATION, in the body of the notecard, list your own name, the name of any other sim administrator from your sim that would like to be involved. You may invite up to two Player Advocates to join you as well, but they must be listed in your Meeting Delegation notecard that indicates you do intend to attend and be part of the discussion. I am trying to keep this meeting down to a small amount of individuals to save time for everyone so please do not attempt to bring along entire clans. One sim administrator and one player advocate would be optimal, in this manner, at least we can ensure there won't be 500 people standing around all talking over each other.
Anyways, get your notecards to me, and again, please, if you are not a CCS sim owner/administrator....do not send me a notecard asking to attend. If you feel you are a player that can add a level of insight and helpful discourse to the meeting, please contact a sim owner/admin that you know and ask them to consider you as their player advocate.
Thanks all, sorry for the long periods of silence but I can't really tell people stuff when theres nothing to tell anyone. Thankfully we do have some stuff coming up that needs to be discussed, so I'd definitely like to discuss it with the people that have stuck by us all these years so they can know, and help shape, how the future is going to look as CCS updates and expands within the grid in 2014.
