We invited the competitors to submit stories to go with their homes, if they wanted to, and several did. You can read these stories by clicking on the signs by the gates of each house. We were so impressed by the stories that we decided to run a second competition for the best three stories.

These will be judged and the results announced at the Final Lantern Ceremony at 4pmSLT on the roof of the theatre on Hope 3 – when we all ride the Lanterns (more details about that to come).

And that will be followed by a party in the gardens of the Designing Worlds cafe at the Expo (designed by undercoverlady), dj’d by DaveOSaurus.

Voting has now started in the Home and Garden Decorating Contest!

Voting in the Home and Garden Decorating Contest is really easy – and you can join in by exploring the newly decorated homes on Hope 3!

All the fourteen houses have been decorated, and RFL kiosks have been placed outside each home.

Every Linden you pay into the kiosks counts as a vote – you can vote as much and as often as you like, and you can vote for as many houses as you want!

Voting will close at midnight SLT on March 12th.

For information on the individual houses, click on the house name signs outside each home on Hope 3. You’ll find stories, links to pictures and blog posts!

More information about the individual houses will be posted here soon.

How can we create great publicity for Brands and Events? Home and Garden Expo Discussion at 2pmSLT

At 2pmSLT today, we’ll be hosting a discussion in the Theatre on Hope 3, discussing a vital topic: How can we build brands and events in Second Life?

This is an open discussion, where people can discuss problems and also solutions that they’ve come up with – and share ideas.

And in addition, there’s a special prize to be won! We’ll be offering the chance for one attendee at the discuss to be featured on an interview on the long-running and popular Second Life TV programme, Designing Worlds – where they can discuss their own store, brand or organisation. Who would want to miss that?
