Hello everyone!

Welcome to the new website and the new forums! I hope we can see people in here discussing the shows - the issues - and what they'd like to see on forthcoming shows!

wiznord

Saffia!!!! So brave you are, making the first forum post! I hope you like the new setup, and there are still more things coming, but I think we got things to the point where we felt things were "mostly working". Keep an eye out for bugs, and if you find them, our mission will be the squash em!

elrikmer

Our new season starts this week, and we have an exciting selection of topics lined up. We do hope you'll enjoy them. And don't forget, if you know somewhere that will be of interest to us or our listeners, on any grid, do let us know.

Saffia! I am so glad to see that you have procured this forum! I watched a couple of the videos of DW here on the TreetTV site, and they work marvelously well. I really enjoyed the Christmas show in Rothesey. My doesn't Elrik have a lovely home there!

Aisling

Hi everyone! What a great new forum for us to gather and talk about the show. Elrik's right, we do have some really interesting places to take viewers this season, and the first one is...well, that would be telling. But I wonder, might giraffes be involved?

My question is if InWorldz is OpenSim than why isn't it on the OpenSim grid list?? http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Grid_List. There are other OpenSim grids that are not on this page besides InWorldz like Openlife.

Go to Maslow's Hideaway on Designing Worlds

It's a big birthday party and the builders of Second Life are celebrating "The Future". Saffia & Elrik show us a few really interesting exhibits from SL6B including their own.

Designing Worlds, formerly Meta Makeover, is a weekly show exploring some of the most impressive designs and creativity in Second Life and beyond.

Hosts Saffia Widdershins and Elrik Merlin aren’t afraid of delving deep into the environments featured on the show. They have investigated mysterious noises on Victorian era sim, New Babbage, walked through the battlefield trenches of the Western Front and attended a Thanksgiving dinner party.

The show addresses issues affecting design and designers working in the virtual environment, such as intellectual property. There are also insights into the latest design techniques, with “how-to” features for budding designers and builders.

On every show, you’ll meet some of the top builders, creators and designers in today’s virtual worlds – and you’re guaranteed a wealth of new ideas, products and venues.

The show is produced by Prim Perfect Productions, publishers of Prim Perfect magazine.

When: Tuesday 2:00PM SLT
