Second Life is 14 years old, that is very old.
Running around the excellent 14th anniversary community celebrations and having just celebrated the 8th anniversary of my 1920s Berlin sim and the 6th anniversary of Berlin’s Eldorado Cabaret, I started thinking about the facts and figures, the numbers and records of our old virtual world.
And to this purpose I thought I’d try and collect a few records.
But I’ll need your help gathering all the data.
What kind of records do we want to collect?
As many as we can.
The oldest still active avatar, longest running club, private region owned by the same person, oldest roleplay sim, oldest shop, best selling item on marketplace ever, oldest item still for sale on marketplace, longest partnered couple, oldest blog, etc, etc.
You name it!
If you think you know of something in Second Life that is breaking some sort of a record, share it in the comments and I’ll make a list out of it.
Just for fun and to give some of these oldtimers something to brag about!
According to Wikipedia, the first and thus oldest avatar in Second Life was Steller Sunshine, it looks like she was last online just a few days ago, so I guess we’ve found the oldest and the oldest still active avatar!
The first region was called “Da Boom”.
It too still exists, if of course this is the same one as the original.
So I guess we have 3 entries on our list already;
- Oldest avatar; Steller Sunshine
- Oldest still active avatar; Steller Sunshine
- Oldest still active region; Da Boom
Let’s see what else we can collect!
And… happy birthday Second Life!
