At Linden Lab, we are asked all the time: "What does it take to develop a successful community in Second Life?" This is a tough question for businesses, non-profit organizations, educators, and individuals alike.

The answer to this question is about as varied and diverse as the Resident population itself. Online communities are extremely complex, delicate creatures. While there is no simple formula, there are currently a variety of articles, resources, and academic studies on the web about community development in Second Life. This Wiki is an attempt to capture that knowledge in one place and create a "living document" anyone can edit and contribute to. It is our hope this Guide will be useful to interested individuals, businesses or organizations using the Second Life Grid.
