Joe Rizzo 12PM Joe makes me feel like I'm in Golden Gate Park or strolling down Haight St. when all the tourists have gone home. His style draws on so many elements while remaining rooted...

        G+ Communities & other groups

        15 largest G+ Communities on HG:  Maria's article  

            ***************************

              How this works

              This article will post on the Friday before 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.

              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: 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 very likely embed it in an article.
