SL19B | Meet the Team: Pru | New Locations
The terminal issuing the official visa stamp for SL19B is to be found – of course – on the BBB stand at the event.
As you're joyfully celebrating the 19th birthday of our virtual world, don't forget to stop by, enjoy our steampunk garden and get your passport stamped.
If you happen upon any of the 15 bureaucrats and Bellisserian diplomats attending the event in their official capacity, you will also be able to ask them to do a personal passport check. They will then add their own, signed, personal stamps to your passport. These are obtainable by clicking on their Single Stamp issuing Device tablet computers. They will carry these SSiDs only at the event.
Please note that the bureaucrats' and ambassadors' SSiDs will be automatically disabled once the event ends. So even if you're a close personal friend of the functionary concerned, you won't be able to get their stamp once SL19B is over. So make sure you collect all the stamps while you can!
Here's your handy cut out and keep checklist of the stamps available.
We look forward to seeing you at the event. Don't be shy, come up and chat to us!
MEET THE TEAM: PRU
This week we will meet the person responsible for Parade of Homes, Prudence Anton.
1. How long have you been in SL?
“Since October of 2006.”
2. How long you lived in Belli?
“I got my first Linden home in Bellisseria, June of 2019.”
3. What is your favorite thing about Bellisseria?
“The community, it's so amazing.”
4. What motivated you to join the BBB team?
“Boo and I started up our own volunteer projects, his being BBB and mine, Parade of Homes around the same time and have always supported each other. Right before Bellisseria's 2nd birthday, we spoke about my coming on board, to join the BBB team and eventually combined the 2 projects together.”
5. What are your BBB responsibilities?
“I am the editor of the Parade of Homes web blog and partner with Pring Productions, doing videos that focus on Bellisserian life.”
6. What is the most fun thing you have ever done as a BBB staff member?
“Filling one of Zoe's crates of wine with my hangers. No, seriously, I probably enjoyed the BBB SSID tablets that were launched at SL18B, that was a lot of fun.”
7. Tell us one thing about yourself that most people do not know.
“Hmm, I guess the fact that I came to Second Life under the impression this was a role play community and I was very invested into role playing, 20 years of it before I retired. They frowned on you playing more than one character per avatar, so the role players made alts, lots of alts. I think I ended up with around 25 avatars. Most now collect dust in a locked and forgotten closet.”
8. Do you have anything else you would like to share?
“Our community thrives from being involved with each other, loving where we live and volunteers in the vast Bellisseria community groups. Bellisseria always needs and welcomes more volunteers.”
Apart from the special event stamp for SL19B (see above) there is also a new stamp to collect from an interesting LDPW location in Bellisseria.
The name of the region is Permaglow. In a beautiful small park there you'll find an eerie memorial to an unfortunate episode in Bellisseria's history. It's called the Three Meter Monument and features the cooling towers of the former Three Meter Nuclear Power Plant.
Sadly, that's not the only legacy of this little-discussed event. Nearby you'll find brightly coloured waste draining into a lake. We can't really recommend, from a health point of view, that you should take a swim there. If you do (or if – more prudently – you cam beneath the water) you'll encounter spent nuclear fuel rods and (in case you're wondering about the design of the stamp) mutated fish. Explore with caution and at your own risk. The Bellisserian Bureau of Bureacracy is not liable in law for any adverse consequences of your visit.
