2016 NEW Bringing new people into virtual worlds? Bring them in via Cookie II or use the NMA method on your own site.

Bringing new people into virtual worlds?   
Bring them in via Cookie II,
or use the NMA method on your own site.
NMA has begun development on a community-based entry path into opensim grids.  The objective is to get new users started in the community as quickly and as easily as possible.  Toward that end, the current entry path (1) gives some initial instruction on the web, before entry; (2) brings people into the NMA welcome site, not the generic grid welcome site; (3) invites newcomers to join the main community inworld group so that they can quickly get acquainted with active community members.
Join panel for Communication Arts

From the NMA Mission statement


Cookie II is a virtual world where we hold events ranging from theatrical performances to discussions and demonstrations of creative uses of virtual world technology. We also use this platform to introduce people new to virtual worlds, to teach the skill sets they need to participate in virtual world arts and to support and develop new media arts and artists

Invitation to other virtual world communities

Use the Cookie II part of the entry path

  • Start people on your own website.
  • Give them your own web-based instructions.
  • Send them to Cookie II for inworld instruction and practice.
  • Join the Communication Arts group and announce your plan to the group.
  • NMA will try to arrange a simple way to send your new people 
  • to your community welcome site: landmark givers or walkin TPs
  • Get some of your active community members to join Communication Arts,
  • so they can respond when your newcomers post to Communication Arts.  

Model your own entry path after the NMA version


  • Feel free to use any or all of the NMA path as a model for your own version.
  • Send Selby Evans a note about it so we can promote it.
