What is SLUniverse?
SLUniverse is a web-forum dedicated to Second Life and to other virtual worlds, and is one of the most successful and popular of the unofficial Second Life forums. It is also the home of the Snapzilla photo-site for sharing Second Life snapshots.
You’ll find it here: http://www.sluniverse.com
Why does it need support?
SLUniverse is run by Cristiano Midnight, a long-time resident of Second Life, and is funded out of his own pocket, offset by advertising. Until recently there was significant income from Google’s AdSense service, but this has recently ended (click here for details).
As a result, the site has now become more expensive to run, and a group of merchants who are also members of SL Universe decided to do their bit to help out. Each merchant has assigned one item whose earnings will be passed to Cristiano as a contribution to support the forum.
Here is the forum thread with the full list of merchants and items.
For Templar Creations contribution, I am releasing the Japanese House Texture Collection, which brings together all 60 textures from the Japanese House texture sets 1 – 3. You will find it inworld at the main store. It won’t be available from the Second Life marketplace, because the marketplace takes 10% commission, and I would prefer that the whole amount went to SLUniverse.
