Irish Pub Gets a Name



Earlier this week, we asked you to help name the new Irish Pub in our fifth region,  Belgravia.

It was hard work, but after a few barrels of Guinness, we all agreed on a name....

The short listed suggestions we had to choose from were:
The Emerald Sword, The Craic, Molly Malones, Mickey Finn's, Lucky Charms and The Shamrock.
Rejected suggestions included:  The Ian Paisley, The Hooley Hole and The Mick and Shovel.

After much mirth, grog and deliberations....   The Mickey Finn was chosen.    Molly Malone was a close second, so as a nod to this choice, The Mickey Finn will serve Molly Malone Ale.

It could have been worse,  Molly Malone's could have been selling Mickey Finns!

Thank you everyone for taking part and congratulations to Katty for the winning suggestion, bagging 250L.

The Mickey Finn will open for business within the week.   Thank you for coming to the naming party and thank you for taking part.

Name the Irish Pub and win 250L




We are building a new tavern in London City4, the posh part of town,  "Belgravia" and we are going with the suggestion from the London City community of an Irish Themed Pub.    But we need your help again in naming it.

The name should indicate that it is an Irish pub, without being an existing brand, or something that could be abbreviated to something unfortunate..  for instance,   "The Leprechaun", as in, "I'm going down the lepers".

So please get your thinking caps on and TP into the Irish Pub with No Name here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City4/226/126/24

Click the guest book by the door and say the name you think best suits the pub.  The person who first suggests the name we use will win 250L on Thursday at 12pm SL (8pm UK).

Of course we know we're setting ourselves up for some rude comments in the book, but that's all part of the fun.

Get your place in history by naming the Irish Pub in London City4.

Yes! We hear you



Having London City 'Voice Enabled', has been a real eye opener and by and large, very successful.

With hundreds of people piling in to hear other regulars on voice for the first time, each eager to have their say and show the personality behind their avatar.   We have had some splendid evenings and some extremely funny comedy moments throughout this trial.

Then as time progressed, the voice trolls would come and have some fun winding people up, talking in strange accents where you just know you're being recorded for another of those 'hilarious' YouTube videos, where the guy says bums and titties every thirty seconds and everyone else gets very cross and gives him the reaction he craves for his latest film.

But the show stoppers were the people who keyed their microphones and just talked.  And they talk and talk and talk.  Never stopping for an instant, never listening for a response, they drone.  Incessant, indefatigable and without end ... and boring the arses off everyone who had the misfortune to encounter them.   What's more, as people start moving away to give their ears a rest from this infernal slavering of gums, they get pursued for more ear bashing.  It is true.  Empty vessels make the most noise.

That said, the ability to have voice is sheer bliss, finest cabaret and a joy to have this opt-in and opt-out layer of entertainment... so long as you can opt out.

Here in London we want to keep the customer satisfied and we recently held polls, over three weeks in three bouts to ensure an accurate representation of feelings: 191 (46%) of voters thought Voice being on was Good and 222 (54%) thought it was Bad.

With the opinion poll being so close, clearly this is something we will review from time to time to ensure we are still representing the majority.

So it's the end of an ear ache as voice gets hobbled in London City(1) for now, but all is not lost. Last Sunday, we turned on our fifth region.  It is attached to the hub area London City and it has Voice Enabled!    It is not fully built yet, but the voice area is up and running and it is on the doorstep of the London City hub.

To use voice, just cross the bridge, there is a whole new region waiting to hear you. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City4/85/26/25

Bring your earplugs and see you on YouTube.  More about the new region later.
