Alas, I don’t have a video tip this week, and promise to have more usefun (useful + fun) knowhow in motion by next Saturday.
I did want to bring greater attention to some useful wiki info-pages which may have answers to some of your questions, and bring together scattered resources at a single glance.
If you don’t know what a “wiki” is, learn more. Wikis are awesome because in addition to browsing, anyone can contribute. These pages are pretty new and stand to be improved upon — so if you have something great to add, go ahead and edit!
- Accessibility – Second Life keeps evolving to be more humane and usable for those who are disabled and have special needs. From brainwave experiments to UI tweaks to make the experience smoother, those benefits belong on this page.
- Discover – Ways to find cool/kewl stuff inworld. Whether it’s Resident-created sites focused on hotspots and finding land or social networking abroad, it should be on here so future Residents can find stuff easier.
- Limits – An easy list of Second Life limitations, e.g., the max. # of prims that can be linked, how high we can fly unassisted, and those darned tricky aspect ratios of profile pictures.
Also introducing… the Basic Resource Toolbox! Our V-Team (check their blog out, y0) assembled this in part to ease info-sharing for our Mentors, but anyone who wants a convenient list of support articles, vidtuts, Linden locations inworld, etc. should bookmark this.
