Revision as of 23:12, 28 February 2008

This is a guide to the diversity of Second Life, with a particular emphasis on locations of interest to new residents. The emphasis is on non-commercial, unusual locations in Second Life, or ones of particular value to new residents (such as excellent sources of free items). To avoid excessive spam content, it should not be a comprehensive listing of every store and mall in Second Life.

Contents

Rules for Inclusion/Deletion

Locations in each section should be in alphabetical order. To make this easy for new residents to scan, descriptions should generally target to be no more than 5 words long.

Non-commercial

Regions

Regions in the non-commercial section must be free to visit. They may however have venues in them that charge for items or activities

Venues

Venues in the non-commercial section must be free to enter. They must be primarily oriented towards free offerings, however a few incidental paid offerings should not constitute immediate disqualification. If there are items available for acquisition in the venue or activities to do, the overwhelming majority of the offerings (90% or more) must be free. For instance, a venue offering 50 free items, 40 free activities, 5 cheap items, and 5 cheap activities, could qualify as non-commercial. Venues that comply with this rule may still be moved to the commercial section, or deleted. For instance, a venue that offers 9 simple, commonly available Notecards for free, and 1 airplane that costs L$3,000 is 90% free, but it's still actually a commercial venue.

Commercial

To avoid excessive spam content, commercial locations should only be listed if they offer something that is not readily available in Second Life. A typical clothing store does not belong in this article. On the other hand, a store that specializes in Classical Ottoman Empire military clothing and accessories is probably pretty rare, and so belongs in this article.
