Time passes fast. About a year ago the idea of GridAffairs was born. The core idea back then was to have a simple list showing the running events in Second Life® and since then it evolved gradually to what it is now.
After a first Prototype the site got more then just an optical make up, also the engine got tuned for a better user experience and the simple list turned into this Website which increasingly became a valuable resource for residents, shop owners and event organizers.
A freely available HUD was developed, which shows inworld all the actual running events listed on the site with a direct teleport link to the events without leaving the viewer.
And last but not least with the help of our friends we could set up a network of around 160 Subscriber Kiosks all over the grid where everyone can subscribe to receive our news and pick up the free Gridaffairs Hud.
While making all this happen we also published over 1000 events and built up a list having over 2900 Second Life® shops participating in the listed events. This means all these shops where actively maintained during the last year and you will find a who is who in our Shop Directory.
What's up next?
This all should keep us busy for a bit while we will improve GridAffairs wherever it is possible.
