A list of public regions to connect to is here: Public Regions
Send a screenshot of your avatar (with nametag) and the about screen to the gridnauts list for your special Gridnaut bear.
- If you see the not in gridnauts message when logging into the Open Grid viewer, please check your account on the beta grid with a release viewer to confirm you are in the gridnauts group.
- If you show up as a 'puffball' ruth on an externally hosted sim, right click on yourself and select 'Edit Appearance,' but don't save. (See SVC-2763.)
- If you get an invalid region error when you attempt to teleport, check your OpenSim's bin/Regions/default.xml
- The attributes sim_location_x, and sim_location_y should not conflict with coordinates on the Second Life grid.
- Check the page Map_Locations and claim a non-conflicting set of coordinates.
- You might check and see if putting your region name in the "Start Location" helps
