It’s been some time since the Second Life community platform last got updated so it will be great to see the new look when it launches before the end of February 2017.

Read-only mode comes into effect soon

To go from the current platform to the new platform the forums will be put into read-only mode during the export process. During that time everyone will be able to read the forums but they will not be able to publish new posts until the export job has been successfully completed.

Upcoming changes that you know about:

  • Between 21st – 27th February: the forums will go into read-only mode
  • On 27th February: the new Second Life platform goes live and the forums are no longer read-only

Can you help the East River Community in Second Life?

Located on the mainland continent of Sansara, the East River Community (ERC) will this year celebrate its ninth year of operations in Second Life – although it can trace its roots as far back as 2006 with the MBYC, one of the first sailing clubs in Second Life – and sailing remains very much a […]

East River Community – (6th February 2017)

I have received word that the East River Community in Second Life is going through a tier crisis and they are looking for tier donors to keep East River Community on the grid. Indigo Mertel who is the founder of East River Community confirmed the news today via notecard, see below.

I hope someone can help and donate tier to the East River Community very soon otherwise it faces closure and it will be a huge loss for Second Life.

I have been contributing to the East River Community with large swaths of land at a considerable monthly cost for years. Many things have changed in my RL these past months and I am now in the sad position to inform you that I am no longer able to contribute to the community. I have procrastinated this decision for a long time because I was very unconfortable with the idea of dilapidating all the hard work we all put into building our beautiful community. But, eventually, I had to come to a decision.

We all want the East River Community to survive, so rather than just pulling the plug I’ll hold off for a limited time in order to find donors willing to donate tier to the group.

To anyone willing to donate tier to the East River Community, please contact Indigo Mertel.

Thank you.

East River Community

The East River Community (ERC) is a federation of groups located on the Sansara continent in Second Life. It was founded on April 28th 2008, though the community traces its roots back to 2006 as a sailing friendly community with the MBYC Community Land Trust group, of which it is the direct descendent. Sailing activities are still part of the community charter.

News: PhoenixHome Community Services

By – Lick my Lollipop!. Visit News: PhoenixHome Community Services for original post.



A few posts ago I mentioned I worked in a G&S sim. I would like to go further on that topic. What I do on the farm is anything from cooking to collecting, to hugging trees and birthing animals. It takes a ton of work to get it done but it’s fun. The proceeds of what is gotten from people buying from our store is given to a real life charity named PhonixHomes Community Services. I have asked her a few questions about the charity.

What is your Mission Statement?

A successful Community is one that WORKS TOGETHER for the benefit of each member within it!

We believe that EVERY member of a community should be involved with PheonixHome, if you have time, money, talent or skill you can participate. If you have none of that, you learn from those that do! Our job is to find out where you are in life and where you want to be and get you there as fast as possible by pairing you with the people that can help you most. 

Our Motto is “Rise from the Ashes with Us”


What is PhoenixHome Community Services? 

We help at risk teens and young adults that may be on a dangerous road, to get the help they need to become productive members of their communities. We help them out of toxic situations such as dangerous family environments, or possible criminal connections. We provide much need services like housing, food, education, clothing, help with school work, carreer and personal councelling 


Where is it based IRL?

Windsor Ontario, Canada, but we plan to expand throughout Canada and hopefully the world, but teaching others how to run a PheonixHome Pyre House in thier own community 


How can I get involved ISL?

Contact Aldora Magic and talk about different ways to raise funds


What is G&S?

A interactive farmlike lifestyle, where you raise animals and feilds and use what you raise to feed your animals and yourself and sell your overstock in a market or through groups. This only one way to raise funds for PhoenixHome Community Services in SL


How can I get involved IRL?
