Vandalism – Second Life and ABC (Australia)

ABC and Second Life for those of you who didn’t hear – we had a major griefing attack on ABC Island today. All the buildings, landscape and shrubbery were destroyed. Linden Lab have now rolled back the island and everything’s back to normal. Thanks so much to all of the ABC Friends and ABC Admin…


ABC and Second Life

for those of you who didn’t hear – we had a major griefing attack on ABC Island today. All the buildings, landscape and shrubbery were destroyed. Linden Lab have now rolled back the island and everything’s back to normal. Thanks so much to all of the ABC Friends and ABC Admin who alerted us to the problem and helped us deal with it – we are so grateful for the strong and loyal community that has built up here so quickly. And don’t forget Prim School – on as planned tomorrow at 8pm (AEST)in the sandbox.

Oops. And the ABC is doing such a good job with their digital media strategies. 🙁 (for newbies – as Second Life is user generated, prim school is how to create the bits and bobs)

  1. I wrote about this too. The Triple J Guys were hilarious in their coverage. They were trying to get the hacker to call in, but no luck. You would think this kind of promotion would be risk free, but no. It must be good publicity for both the ABC and Second Life. It made me want to go and take a look, but even with a free account, it is a huge file, that would probably significantly weigh down my already overloaded PC.

  2. Risk free Colin? Naaaaah. Imagine you are a company that has never spoken with your customers before – I don’t mean feedback forms, I mean through blogs and forums. Then you whack up an installation in Second Life. There just won’t be the good will there – in fact there’s an “avatar terrorist” group in Second Life that have ransacked a number of companies including hmm Adidas I think. And sabotaged interviews online (remember the floating pen*ses?)

    (I don’t think Google respects me when I use the word pen*s; they had me down as a pr0n site once when I was talking about online protection 😛 )

    Anywaaaaay, asking companies to take baby steps and not rush straight to Second Life is pretty difficult. But it’s a shame they picked the ABC who do have quite a good online forum thingie going on.There’s an Aussie company on another island that are more worthy. Ooops I shouldna said that.

    The download file is 30 MB. I am with BigPond so downloaded their one that doesn’t use my download credit limits. Installed folder is 60 MB in size. Game on? (I’m SilkCharm SacherTorte btw).
