December 2012 Competition Announcement

Snow swirls around you as your booted feet trample through the snowy cobble streets of Victorian London. The scent of balsam and roasting chestnuts fills the air, as the glow of gaslight and twinkling candles light your way. The bustle of Christmas business fills London's streets with vendors and hawkers of every kind as the city prepares for the winter holiday.

Have you guessed our theme? It's a Dickens Christmas!

You can build a home or a business that would have graced the streets of London during one of its more prosperous times. Although times were good, there has always been an element of poverty in this amazing city. You may choose to focus on either aspect.

Not sure what the architecture of Victorian London would be like? Check out the links, and be sure to focus on 1840 - 1870s London.

Mountain Retreat Competition Scoring

Thank you for participating in our competition! Now for the fun! Visit each of the builds in the competition and score each one using the scorecard in the link below. 

Remember this scorecard is for the competition participants and certain people who have been invited by either Daniel or Jolie. All others should vote using the People's Choice vote board on the platform.

All scores are tabulated using a spreadsheet. Your comments will be sent to each other anonymously after the winners are announced. Please try to keep your comments positive and helpful.

You will be asked for a code, it can be any 4 numbers of your choice.


Voting will be from:
November 16th, 6pm SLT thru November 17th, 6pm SLT

Please consider making a donation to the competition fund located at the plaza on the platform. Bring in your friends and building acquaintances, as we will have a "People's Choice" voting board there. We appreciate every donation, it is your kindness that allows the competitions to continue.

Hi Builders!

Just a couple of last minute things to remember!

First, please send me 512 x 512 full perm pics of your build before 5pm SLT. Name them like this: MR (your name). For example: MR Jolie Serendipity.

Double check your build that you don't have items with another creator listed. This is the thing that most often gets people disqualified. Another hot item for disqualification is if any of your prims show creation dates not within the dates of the competition. (we do check these)

Please consider donating to the donation thermometer located at the Welcome Center. The prize money comes from the donations. Any amount is appreciated!

TP in your friends and enemies! (JK, I know none of you nice people have enemies!) Encourage them to vote on the People's Choice board after 6pm SLT, and give to our donation thermometer!

Visit our sponsors on the sponsor board, and spread the Linden Lovin by shopping with them!

Winners will be announced next Sunday at 4pm SLT at our Awards Ceremony at ô€€€Bring a Friend and Stay Awhile. ReallyMad Morpork will perform LIVE! 

Thank you for participating. I hope you had a lot of fun, and will join us again next month! Look out for the new theme around December 1st!

Mountain Retreat Lot Size and Land Impact

Hello builders!

This month's competition has an additional challenge! Your mountain retreat must fit in a 16 X 32 lot, and may have no more than 117 Land Impact.

Yes, this is the "standard" Linden Labs size for premium accounts.

I have textured the lots to match the grass, let me know if you want me to remove the smaller lot so you can rez your own 16 X 32 and use your own texture.

Remember to wear your special Little Blue Island Management tag while building, and save, save, save. Did I mention that the most important thing you can do is save your build?

Please plan your time, and get started as early as possible. Plan for unexpected hitches such as the sim crashing or griefers causing lag. Save your build. I cannot say this enough.

Also, please review the rules. It is your responsibility to know them. Ask questions if you are not sure.

Be kind to the sim managers, and each other. Our goal here is to help you become a better builder, and we all know we learn better when we feel like those around us have our back.

If you know anyone who wants to join us, please send them to our blog. We need 2 platforms, why not fill them?

TP in your friends to watch, and encourage them to donate to our donation thermometer. Prizes are paid from funds raised! Be sure to thank them for the honor.

Most important, while you are saving your build, remember how much fun this is!

This month's theme is Modern Mountain Retreat. Your build should have a rustic but modern feel, with wood, stone, and windows that take in the magnificent mountain vistas.
