Re: Kitely welcome area: What does it need to include?

Here's my take. Keep it simple, focused and uncluttered -- especially the central link-in point. Use a single region rather than a megaregion, so that points of interest (or other people) are always close by. Pathways leading away from the link-in point would take you to: Separate male and female ch...

Re: Kitely welcome area: What does it need to include?

Thanks, all, for the suggestions so far. Do keep them coming. I'll try to do a summary post every so often so we can take stock. For reference, here are the functions/elements in the current plaza (if I've missed any, do let me know). Close to the entry point, and facing you on entry: sign to get th...

Re: What do others think about kitely plaza ?

I agree, Ada. Keep it simple. Keep it focused. Regions/worlds separate from the putative welcome centre could provide the other functions, and in a way that reflects the diversity within the Kitely userbase. ========= Edit: I've set up a new thread: Kitely welcome area: What does it need to include?

Kitely welcome area: What does it need to include?

The aim of this thread is to focus on what a possible Kitely welcome area might need to include. It's not meant to pre-empt discussion at Wednesday's Mentors Group meeting, but to feed into it and to enable those unable to attend to have some input. The intention, through thread and inworld discussi...

Re: What do others think about kitely plaza ?

As I'll only be able to attend the meeting this week for an hour we probably won't be able to finalize the design. However, I suggest everyone interested in this project visit Rikku's mockup as it can be a good basis to start the discussion from once we finalize the goals. If other people have othe...

Re: What do others think about kitely plaza ?

I'm not sure that walking round the current plaza is going to help. Individual areas are good. It's more a case that the whole is less than the sum of the parts. Perhaps the Plaza currently is trying to do too many things at once: it's meant to be an initial entry point for newcomers to Kitely, a po...

Re: Devokan Storytellers Group - 4 August Gathering

The Storytellers Gathering will start in a few minutes. In the meantime, I've set up the Devokan Trust land radio stream on Retreat, on the Kitely OpenSim grid, to broadcast today's D'ni Palooza 2013. This features music and musicians from the Myst/Uru communities on various virtual worlds. To get t...
