Message of the Day

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A Message of the Day (MOTD) is the blurb that's shown to everyone while logging into Second Life. It can be a quicktip, emergency announcement, or even a useful/fun Second Life link. Like this:

5 useful + fun facts about the MOTD

  2. You can click links in the MOTD
  3. Customer Lifecycle Management takes care of the MOTD
