    • *These should include HG address in general form
    • General form is like this:  
    • cc.opensimulator.org:8002:OSCC Expo Zone 2
    • Free gift carrying notecard and LM. 
    • Wearable gifts are especially useful for promotion.
    • Teleport to event location. 
    • Be sure your kiosk promotes from above, not just from the sides.
    • Lots of people fly or cam from above.
    • Stores: lose the roof, put a sign on the floor

    Clusters of kiosks by service   

    • Clusters are intended to help visitors find what they are looking for.
    • Promotion:  instruction, web links to instruction, talent agents.
    • Regular events and venues: location, schedule, calendars.
    • Special events: links to web sites that list these, calendars.
    • Outfitters: avatars, instruments:  Links to market place and stores.
    • Music streaming help:  Instructions and servers
    • Available talent: Singers, musicians, comedy acts, game shows.

    Suggestions for venues with upcoming events

    • If you are promoting something, develop your digital savvy.
    • Include a web link to your page and landmarks to your Hypergrid place.
    • Landmarks stay with people, so they can use them later.
    • On your web page, include the HG address to your place.
    • Never depend on textures to offer HG addresses.  They don't copy/paste.
    • Use the general form of HG addresses.   On Kitely, that is in your web page.
    • It looks like this: cc.opensimulator.org:8002:OSCC Expo Zone 2
    • Do not give Firestorm hops.  
    • They only work in Firestorm and are reliable only on the local grid.
    • Do not offer HG addresses that start with http//
    • That looks like a web address, but does not work in a browser.
    • New people will try it in the browser and conclude it does not  work.
    • Mall owners, venue owners, anyone wanting traffic: Your parcel is not my parcel
