    How this works

    This article will post on the Friday nearest the first and 15th of the month.  I will try to include an item about any event or offer I know about the day before posting.  To be included any notice must include the location, unambiguous date, and the reason(s) why people would want to attend.  If I don't think my readers will be interested, I will not post about it.

    Location: For SL, give the SLurl.  For Hypergrid, give the HG address in standard form:
    • <hg-address>:<hg-port>:[<region-name>]
    If you put the prefix http:// on it, I will remove it.  That prefix indicates a web link and causes the browser to show the expression as a clickable link, thus confusing people not already familiar with the oddities of virtual worlds.  Firestorm does not use the http:// for map search and may not know how to interpret it.  

    Date:  Include the date in California time.  Add any other times you wish but be clear about the locations.  

    Reasons for attending: Think beyond your local community if you want to attract outsiders.  Think beyond words (especially beyond overused marketing expressions.)  Think of pictures, GIFs, and videos.  If you post a 5 minute video on YouTube well in advance of an interesting event, I will consider embedding it in an article.
