Introducing the Hypergrid Welcome Center
– Calling creators for help –
bit.ly/HG_welcome_center motivated me to go ahead and create a region dedicated to this purpose. His experiences as a Hypergrid Newbie, were similar to mine. When I started to hypergrid in April it took me many weeks to understand how it works. As a creator I had the resources to fix my avatar, but most coming from SL or closed grids don’t have this possibility. In collaboration with Tom’s community, I want to help to make the transition of Newcomers easier.
Tutorial boards are done. They start with explaining what are grid, oar, metaverse, how to hyper-travel etc through boards with links to webpages, to blogs or Chic’s video tutorial. Added also linked boards to G+ communities like Opensim Virtual, Hypergrid Destinations and many others.
Also started to package Landmark Tours to freebies, to interesting places to explore, to art and education etc. Thanks tofor the suggestion.
There is a Meeting Point as Hangout area and a Sandbox. Who joins the group can set his Home position to the group land until they decide where to get a region or own land.
Owners of free land
are welcome to pass me a folder containing a picture, a notecard with info, the HG adress and a landmark of their grid and whom newcomers can contact to get free land. I will post a board with such offers.
are also welcome to post an advertising board for their regions for a payment of 1 usd monthly. Contact me by interest.
