Too many sprouts?

Famous for our classy user polls.. today we ask, how is it going for you this Christmas?

For anonymous medical research and certainly not for merriment, we are concerned whether or not the sprouts, turkey and alcohol affecting you more than usual?



Boxing Day

So after you've digested todays roast dinner and flicked through the usual movies on the telly, pop in to London City and have fun showing off your new toys and games to other Residents. 

Also try your luck at the games tables, or just pop in for a sherry or three.  We're open throughout the holidays, so come share some cheer with your friends.

Paying for Premium membership using Linden Dollars



You can pay for premium membership using Linden Dollars.. Here's how:


Log on to your dashboard at Secondlife.com and look for the Linden Exchange panel on the left hand side. Click manage, then click Sell.

The amount you need to sell from your Second Life account is L$3,100 and this will raise US$11.37







You will be asked to confirm your password and then your order will be processed.

At this point, this is usually where you would go to the Process Credit part to request funds to be sent to you in US dollars.   But for this method of paying for premium subscription, you leave the money in your account.

Finally, you head over to https://secondlife.com/premium and upgrade your account.  Whenever any payments for Premium, Land Tier etc is taken by the lab, it always checks to see if you have US Dollars on deposit on your account and will always take from that pool first, before debiting your credit card.  Therefore if you wish to remain as a quarterly premium member, you would need to repeat this process every 12 weeks (selling 6200L).  Alternatively, keep an eye out for deals on annual Premium subscription which is an even better offer.


Limited time 50% discount for Premium Membership - They pay you!



Linden Lab is currently offering 50% off Second Life Quarterly Premium Membership.


We have worked out what this means in sterling:

This month, Second Life has an offer for premium membership at just US$11.25 for 3 months (£8.41).   Add back the weekly stipends you will receive, (totalling 3600L) which is worth £11.40 and the 1000L bonus worth £3.17 and you get £14.57 in Linden Dollars for the £8.41 you pay for Premium!

Just some of the benefits of Premium Membership include:

A Linden Home -or- a 512 sq meter parcel for you to build on supporting 175 prims.
Expanded Support, now including Live Chat
Exclusive Activities including Dune Buggy Racing in Racer's Gulch
Free Premium member gifts
Access to Premium member only Sandboxes
Increase from 42 to 60 groups!
Increase from 25 to 50 offline messages!
*New* Priority Entry to regions that are full!
Other offers and incentives offered constantly.

Don't forget, VAT is no longer applied to European countries.   So now is a great time to jump on board.

Head to the Second Life web site here:  https://secondlife.com/premium/

Hurry - Offer ends 2nd January!
