  • The VWF kiosk will also offer click-to-open links to important HG web sites.
  • The VWF is friendly to commercial interests.

Themed venues

Themed venues under development

  • HG events: Help to find them, to present them, to promote them, to support them.
  • HG grids:  Help to find them, to visit them, to choose one for a base.
  • HG Communities: Help people find and visit communities they are interested in.

Expected operation plans

  • I am putting my own opinions here.  
  • The plans may change when the VWF operating group takes control of development.

Metaverse events, recent and upcoming


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

Objective of the HG Kiosk

Provide ways to find and choose VWF venues

  • On the web: This blog will post the promo and addresses
  • IMA will post the same things.  I hope others will also link or repost. 
  • On the grids: A full perm VWF Kiosk will be provided and updated as needed.
  • We hope the VWF Kiosk will be hosted in many places.

VWF Kiosk plan, content development

Exhibitors design, build and maintain their own exhibits

  • The existing OSCC venues are the initial part of the VWF.
  • The extension to themed venues will get content in the same way.
  • The themed venues will provide parcels with build powers.  
  • Differences
  • Parcels will be available to qualified exhibitors at no cost.
  • Parcels will be small and close together to give compact view and access.
  • Kiosks may be in several places if they fit more than one aspect of visitor interest.
  • Commercial interests are welcome.  
  • Kiosks may offer addresses, landmarks, and teleports to their places.
  • A model kiosk will be available to suggest content and provide scripts.

VWF venue kiosks

  • Objective: Help people find and select a VWF venue that interests them.
  • To be prepared by VWF operating group.
  • To be distributed widely on VWF grounds and elsewhere.
  • Kiosks may offer landmarks, notecards, web-senders, and web pages on MOAP.
  • Note: Must give landmarks themselves.  
  • Embedded landmarks can only be recovered on the grid where they were embedded.  
  • Destination board: panel with teleport links to VWF Venues.  
  • Destination promo: Notecards and web senders with info about the venues.
  • VWF will provide scripts if needed.

VWF Kiosks for general HG interests 

  • VWF Venues from OSCC17 (Several articles)
  • Planning on entertainment venue
