The Community Gateway

Although they haven’t formally announced it yet, Linden Lab is bringing back the Community Gateway program where SL communities participate in attracting and signing up new users into Second Life. We have been chosen as one of the communities, and we’re doing it the typical “GO BIG” Firestorm way. We have six regions for this gateway, five built and designed exclusively by the brilliant Daddio Dow with contributions from Yony Bing for custom sim surrounds, Namuri, who designed the lovely rivers, Mitsuko Kytori, who donated most of the breathtaking trees and vegetation, Raven Seraph who created an amazing custom Phoenix avatar for our management accounts, and finally Whirly Fizzle and Jessica Lyon for donating the monies to purchase everything else.

There is a diverse variety of  immersive experiences to explore and learn from, like an airport with flyable aircraft and sky diving. A mystical enchanted Dow Forest, abandoned marinas with driveable boats, a post apocalyptic city, a sandbox to learn building, a classroom for basic classes, an amphitheater/dance area for events, an incredible underwater world to explore and most importantly, a social area with wonderful free gifts to get new residents started on their way.

We are launching the gateway with a month-long Spooky Nights Hunt organized by the Huntress Spooky Mistwallow purposed to create awareness of the gateway regions and what they offer by encouraging existing users to explore. Ultimately we hope to attract volunteers and resources to help us manage them moving forward. We need knowledgeable, helpful friendly people to spend time helping new residents coming into SL. We also need content creators to donate high-quality, free items for them. If you are interested in helping, please contact the following people with a notecard:

  • If you’d like to teach classes: Ed Merryman;
  • if you’d like to donate free items for newbies: Amaya Summers;
  • if you’d like to volunteer as a helper/mentor in the gateway: Gateway Manager Flossy Andrew.

The MadPea Connection!

Madpea Logo We are super excited to announce that we’ve formed a mutually beneficial partnership with MadPea Productions! Essentially MadPea will install some of their older games as free play in our environments, and in exchange new residents will learn about MadPea Games to become potential new customers. MadPea will also then be able to send their new users to our installations to learn how to play MadPea games. Being able to bring this level of fun learning interactivity to the new user experience is just a massively huge deal for the success of this gateway, and we are so excited to have MadPea on board!  You can read the MadPea press release here.

The Phoenix Firestorm Project, Inc.

  • […] merchants have contributed to the hunt, and you can read a list of participating creators on the Firestorm post on the party, and also catch photos of some of the prizes on […]

  • The community gateways sound great and I wish everyone good luck on that project. I hope that someone will actually be approving or disapproving donated freebies. Let’s hope the days of 2 day old residents looking like they stepped out of 06 are gone.

  • Anything with Seth Regan – Mankind Tracer performing is bound to be GREAT! He’s such an AMAZING artist and live performer, the very best as far a I’m concerned! He’s a total hottie and a sweetheart and puts on a very fun and interactive show.

    I’ll be there with friends in costume. Sounds like another amazing event from the Firestorm team.

  • Seth put on an AMAZING show. He never disappoints. If you havent seen him perform in SL, go see him. better yet LISTEN to him. His originals are incredibly insightful, wonderfully arranged and performed. He plays his instruments with such heart and that voice… OY… melting just thinking about it. As a musicologist of sorts, I can tell you straight, Seth Regan is a musical genius! There I said it!

Well, those days are back, with the Lindens opening up opportunities for SL Gateways and calls for new mentors already going out to the SL community – you can read more about the Gateways over at the Firestorm blog.
