London City




Over the past few weeks, we have been asking our wonderful residents what it is about London City that they like so much to make it the most popular destination in Second Life.

The shopping, the London landmarks, the vehicles, the houses?..  and the resounding answer is the night life.

People love to be in London City because it is so much fun, so as we step into 2015, we excitedly make a bold move and redevelop London City into the mecca of SL Nightlife. 

We are moving all our fantastic clubs into a stones throw of each other.  We plan to bring that real life bustling London feel right to you, with Juiced, Bar Soho, Madame Lala's, The Crown, The Worlds End and a few new ones to watch out for, all located within one incredible high action region.

Merry Christmas



Merry Christmas from London City in Second Life.



Let there be light... and there was!



Today is the Winter Solstice.
That means that it is the shortest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere with a sunset at 3.53pm or seeming even earlier if its cloudy.

So that's the bad news out of the way.  The good news is that for those of us who detest winter and darkness,  just hang in there, things are about to improve!

Sunset will be a minute later each day now.

By New Years Eve it will be just after 4pm, and by the end of January we will start to enjoy an extra 2 minutes a day of light and the sunset won't be until 4.40pm. 

By end of February the daylight will increase by an hour a month, with sunsets at 5.40pm. By the end of March you simply won't care, it will be 6.30pm before night time and when the clocks go forward on 30th March, we will be basking in sunlight until 7.30pm.

The beauty of virtual worlds is that you can stick two fingers up at Mother Nature and roll the seasons a bit earlier if you want to. This year will be no exception in London City, where we like things as sunny as possible.  In fact, there is already a couple of daffodils sprouting shoots which would indicate a very early spring!

Voice Vote jiggery-pokery



Usually its hard enough to get people to vote on anything as it relies upon them dragging that big heavy mouse all the way over to the vote board and then having to click on an option, but once again we have a vote booth busting poll about peoples feeling on whether or not Voice is a good thing.


The general trend was that Voice is a bad option in the new user hub, with 45 people voting for Bad and 23 voting for good.  Then word got around and within a day it shot up to 70 voting bad and 65 voting good.

We have done this poll before, but because people feel strongly they tend to log quite a few other accounts to sway the vote in the way they feel.
We had considered this poll was over and yielded inconclusive results.   So the voting board was moved up onto the wall and out of the way... and yet people continued to find it and vote on it, with it standing at Bad: 73 and Good: 74.

So, whilst none of us can decipher whether our visitors really think voice is either good or bad, what we have to agree on is that this topic is one that most people have a view on and one that some have strong reactions to.  Strong enough to log multiple accounts to swing it.

Seems that this is one subject that just won't go away!

DX Exchange - Linden Dollars without a Credit Card




Visit DX in London City. 410L for £1

Over £365m will be spent this week on internet sales as people hit various online stores in the hunt for Christmas gifts. 

Imagine you are one of these shoppers but you don't have a credit or debit card.  It would be near impossible to buy anything!

Credit and Debit cards is still the preferred method of buying lindens for a lot of people and is fully supported by DX Exchange at favourable rates, but other handy options exist including, but not limited to, Paysafe Card, Ticket Surf, Moneybookers Wallet and UseMyBank.

There is an even easier option too.  You can even purchase Linden Dollars for the cost of a phone call to  DX Exchange!
