HG Safari




In a few weeks, I'll begin booking the Fall Safari season. The emphasis is as usual on going to new places, and the occasional older favorite. Are you interested in hosting a visit? Please DM me directly, Do you know someone whose sim would be a good destination? Please invite the sim owner to DM me.

YaY HG Safari has its grand finale for the season this coming Wednesday. We visit a fab region on neverworld 'Wild Kingdom' and then round off the event with some dancing and eeping on pangea

today

so guys, Safari is on a break for about 6 weeks, we come back at the end of April. Thanks for all your support!

Reminder - do you or someone you know want to have the Safari come visit in Season 2? (end April - early June)
There are only a couple of spots still available. so send Thirza a DM as soon as possible

This week, Inworld Review was a retrospective of the Fall Season of HG Safari, with our guest Nara Malone.
Revisit the destinations, learn which were the most successful and which were more of a challenge to the Safaristas as they crushed the Hyperverse, one sim at a time.

How do you deal with someone who creates drama in Opensim

  • I engage them in conversation - they are usually lonely or upset and just need to chat
  • Instant mute/ban, I don't need the hassle, and Opensim is a big place, we can avoid each other!
  • Misunderstandings can happen. I give them a few chances, but when it becomes clear they are drama junkies, I ghost them
  • Have a big fight with them! It's fun, and sometimes it clears the air.
  • I never met anyone who creates drama in Opensim.

congrats and thanks to everyone who participated in the OSCC safari event! While we were grid jumping, a 'safari' video was being broadcast. The bit about the safari event begins here: https://youtu.be/-w-eC2igalA?t=14207
If you didn't get the souvenir gift, your own personal Ivory Tower, it's still available in front of the Artist's Biographies on

Note: the OSCC video looks a bit pixellated - try Mal's version of the video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soUV29rOqvY

Oubliet: OoOOOoo...I need to go back and pick up the gift! 2 years ago
No Safari this week, but on the Inworld Review we put some news of events around opensim and there was a good conversation with Undecal Masala. Do you or your friends have upcoming events, openings, news that you want to share? Send me a poster and a bit of description, and we will include you in the hg happenings at the start of the show

Why is there no option for "all of the above? However, it seems I can vote without picking any of the options. Interesting.
