Linden Lab Official:User Groups
About Second Life User Groups
User groups are product or community focused and each one is led by the product manager or community manager. Our goals are to make it easier for you to find the user group, or groups, that you want to participate in and for us to listen more closely to your needs and ideas. The user group program is about opening up more lines of communication. Most user groups are public and include inworld meetings, JIRA sections, and sometimes a Twitter feed, an SL Forum, or an SL email list. It's up to the user group lead and the core Resident team how they want to communicate with one another. The discussions will be open, direct, and focus more on your needs, new features, and be more forward-looking.
All Residents who join user groups must comply with the new Community Participation Guidelines, in addition to our Terms of Service. These guidelines ensure that all conversations are constructive, courteous, respectful, and in the spirit of collaboration.
|Note: User groups aren't for support help. Instead, use the Support Portal.|
Public User Group Meetings
For information on dates and times of user group meetings, see the user groups meeting schedule. And, each User Group has an individual page where agendas and archives reside. The program is just starting up so give each User Group leader time to fill in their content. Check back often!
All times listed are Pacific Time.
