Please help us with a new project, Safari Suggestions. The idea is to give every hypergridder the chance to name five memorable places in open sim, and share their thoughts and Landmarks with others. This is not a popularity contest, but more a chance for you to let us know a bit more about you and your tastes.
It's harder than it sounds! Can't remember the name of a place we saw while on Safari?
Looking back through this blog may jog your memory, or the Safari Archive inside the clubhouse may also help.
Once you've chosen five places, what next?
Visit each one and take a new LM, and a 256x256 snapshot (Snapshots are free in opensim, in case you didn't know.) In the Snapshot Window, select the 256x256 size, and then make sure you check the Keep Aspect ratio box to get a nice square picture.
Why this size? It helps reduce lag once we begin to get a lot of suggestion boxes.
Make a notecard and list your five choices, with a comment about why you like each place.
So now you have one notecard, five photos, and five Landmarks. What next?
Visit a clubhouse
|Francogrid clubhouse - go inside!|
or on OSGrid at hg.osgrid.org:80:Teravus Plaza
(we will be adding more Safari Suggestion areas at other clubhouses in due course)
|Safari Suggestions on francogrid|
Rez your copy of the cube. You will notice it's called Picks by [your name here] - delete [your name here, and put, duh, your name! in the Contents, there is a script, if you click on it and hit reset, your name will now appear in the floating text above the cube.

Place the cube on one of the shelves.
Now anyone visiting the clubhouse has yet another way to explore the metaverse, and to feel part of the community of travelers.
