London Support - We're Hiring!





Two years ago, we became the first of the Linden Lab Official Community Gateways, with new residents 'born' directly in London City and starting their adventure here in Second Life.

We have a  trusted team of specially trained residents known as London Support, helping new users acclimatize to the virtual-world.

Some of our Support team, have moved across to the newly formed London Guides, who show residents the best that London City has to offer.

This opens up some vacancies on our New User Support Team.  We would love to hear from you, if you are willing to give the gift of your time of 4 hours (or more) per week, helping new residents get the best initial experience of Second Life.

You do not have to be an expert, but you do have to be friendly and engaging.

For information and an application form, click the Our Team button at the top of this page.

London City Community Gateway






Second Life's London themed Community Gateway, "London City Gateway" is taking shape.

The Gateway aims to give new users the basic skills they need to enjoy their initial experience in Second Life.

New users creating accounts will be given the option to login directly to London City, so it is important to include as many useful tutorials as possible, without overwhelming a newcomer.

The 'Walk-Through' already covers how to move, walk, fly, communicate, dress avatars, use pose balls and join groups.



We are very fortunate that London City group memberships now total a quarter of a million residents and to that end we would like to draw upon your wealth of experience and invite your comments, suggestions and ideas for additional 'instructions' that should be included.






Please visit London City Community Gateway and imagine yourself as a brand new user. If you have a suggestion for something we should include as a basic but essential skill that a new user will need within the first hour of their Second Life, please drop a note card in-world to Billy Arentire.

At this point we are not seeking to demonstrate building skills as a part of the tour as this will be included in a dedicated area.

Thank you to all your suggestions so far.  Please keep them coming.

London City Gateway open for a PREVIEW



Whilst the building for London City Gateway continues, we are pleased to let you know that the initial phase of the completed building work will give a good flavour of what is yet to come in the Gateway in terms of  additional content, useful guides and free items.

The region is now open for Preview.. and by preview we mean that not everything is working yet, not all texturing is complete and there are a lot of things still to be set in their correct position.

If you would like to have a look around the London City Gateway region and see our progress so far visit: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City%20Gateway/183/85/24
