How can we use an always-on world in Kitely?  
Focussed welcome center aggregators.  
Gather welcome centers of focussed interest. 
Always-on worlds can serve as welcome centers for other activities.

Focussed WC development

Use it to host focussed welcome centers

Possible themed welcome centers

  • PLC (for educators)
  • Business
  • Conferences, conventions, meetings (VBH)
  • Storytelling (Seanchai)
  • Entertainment 
  • Social (could be at KWC)


What is the always-on Welcome Center?

  • The AOWC hosts collection of themed welcome centers.
  • Central arrival point, probably at 256, 256.  
  • Surrounded by signs offering TP's to themed welcome centers
  • Themed welcome centers are on the same world, so already active.
  • Each themed welcome center is a parcel set to the managing group for the theme.
  • Each themed welcome center has signs with relevant information.
  • With the content is controlled by the theme group.
  • The location is promoted by all the hosted centers and by the aggregator. 
  • The AOWC may also provide instruction on basic skills needed by a visitor.

What is in the themed centers?

Relevant information

Walkin teleports

  • You walk into a doorway  and teleport to the main location.
  • The OSSL function to do that has to be placed by someone with high land authority.
  • So you give the TP object to the land owner, who can place a working version.
  • If the teleport will be delayed while the destination is loading, provide the visitor with something to read during that time

How people get to a Welcome Center


  • Blog articles (here, for sure)
  • TP sign from Kitely Welcome Center
  • Always-on worlds should get special display TPs at KWC
  • TPs indicate subject of interest.
  • "Always-on welcome worlds"
  • Notifier when someone arrives.
  • Welcomers can be doing their own thing in the welcome world.
  • And respond to visitors when they arrive. 
  • Themed welcome centers could have IM notifiers for several people.
  • Those people could be notified wherever they are in Kitely.
