Upcoming Reading

Sherry D. Ramsey (Luta Lassard in-world) will be reading her fantasy story, “Winter Bewitched” to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life, on July 9th, 2010 at 6pm SLT.  All are welcome!  This will (obviously) be a voice event, so make sure voice is enabled and your speakers are on!  Donations for RFL will be accepted during the reading.  SLURL to follow when the venue is definite, although it will be somewhere in the Wind River Territory sim.  Hope to see you there!

A successful seminar

Special thanks to Kat Alderson for her wonderful Web Design Seminar last Monday!  The event ran ‘just a little long’ at around three hours, but it was jam-packed with information.  I know I spent the next day or two revamping my website and I’m sure I wasn’t alone.

If you’ll remember, this was also a Relay For Life fundraiser seminar, with donations being accepted for that wonderful cause.  I’m very proud to announce that the seminar pulled in L$17,450.oo in donations!  Well done everyone!

If you attended the seminar, let us know what you thought of it.  Any lingering questions?  A desire for another?

Web Design Seminar

In place of our normal Monday night meeting, on May 31, 2010, we will be hosting a web design seminar.  The class will focus on beginners, but there should be something for everyone.

Expected topics include website creation, domain names, creative design elements, hosting, links and cross promotion.

The class is a Relay For Life fundraiser and donations will be collected during the event.  Non-workshop members will have to pay a mandatory L$500 (about $1.80US) for the seminar, and the suggested donation is L$2000.  Workshop members are encouraged to donate, but it is not required.  Those who wish to, should send a L$500 payment to Graegor Aeon before the event, which will be forwarded on behalf of the workshop to RFL.  Workshop members who wish to donate above and beyond the L$500 mark may do so directly into the RFL vendor on site.  An accounting of all donated funds will be made available upon request (I’ll take a screenshot of my relevant transaction history).

Be aware that this will be a VOICE EVENT.  Please arrive at the meeting with your speakers on and your microphones off.  Questions may be asked via text chat, but will be answered in voice.  Please arrive early for sound-checks or help with Second Life voice settings.

The seminar will be held on Monday, May 31, 2010 at 6pm SLT (9pm ET).  It is expected to run about an hour, but may exceed that time based on the number of questions.
