General Information

Welcome to the official central resource for information related to Second Life's 5th Birthday! The event is being coordinated by the SL5B Committee, which is made up of Resident Volunteers and Lindens.

This year's birthday celebration is a 2-week event. The first week, June 23 to June 29, will be kicked off by speeches from Philip Linden and M Linden. Themes for that week will feature exhibits from cultures past and present, arts, fashion, machinima, and music. For these exhibits, we’ve extended the deadline to Thursday, June 5 at 6pm PDT. Applications are now closed.

The second week, from June 30 to July 7, will feature exhibits from business, education, health care and nonprofits. We’ll close with a ceremony including a special guest speaker with a very important announcement. The deadline for the business, education, health care and nonprofit exhibits was Tuesday, June 10 at 6pm PDT. Applications are now closed.

New information will be added here as we are able to make it available, to keep our fellow residents of Second Life informed on the progress of our 5th Birthday Event. Information in English is the most updated.

Second Life's 5th Birthday Event begins June 23, 2008 9:00 am (Monday) to July 7, 2008 11:59 pm (Monday)

  • Notice: all times are in US Pacific time
  • Latest news (June 16, 2008): This event has grown from one week to two, and some people are confused about how long they will be allowed to exhibit. If you are part of the arts and culture sections, you should be ready to exhibit and start doing your fine tuning on June 20, 2008. The gates open on June 23, 2008. You are welcome to exhibit for the whole two weeks of the event, and we hope you will! Beginning on week 2 (June 30), we will begin to shift focus a bit and add more events and exhibits in the Education, Business Solutions and Nonprofit categories. These folks have an extra week to prepare (until June 27, 2008), and are located on the regions called Edit, Linked, Rotate and Stretched. However, if they can complete their exhibits on time for the opening on June 23, they should! They will get far more visibility on their exhibits if they too can be open for the full two weeks. But no one will pressure them to be ready by June 23, since they are getting a late start. -Dusty Linden
