SL'ang Life no more [UPDATE]


[UPDATE: March 29, 2010] I removed all SL'ang Life links - they don't lead to SL'ang Life website anymore (since it doesn't exist), but to one you wouldn't want to go to ;)

I can't believe I'm writing this, yet it did happen: our beloved magazine is closed now. We've been struggling to save it for the last few weeks, but there's no way to keep it operating unless we find a new investor.


Working at SL'ang Life was an amazing experience. I love all the people I met and worked with, and I have some great memories to treasure. I was very proud each time I said I worked for SL'ang Life magazine - was it RL or SL. And I did shed a tear (not only one tear, actually) when I realised we have to put the project on hold.

Now I feel as if someone has taken away a part of my identity - I'm no longer SL'ang Life journalist. I need to find a new way in my life which I'm sure will be great, but I'm sad for the things I need to leave behind. The most scary thing of all is the possibility of splitting with SL'ang Life team - we come from different cities and some of these people have never been in Second Life - but I do hope we will manage to keep in touch. I really got to like them a lot.

We did a lot of fun stuff together. I'm going to miss those crazy nights at our island - fooling around, laughing and chatting on voice with our readers. I'm going to miss even more the meetings in RL, which were full of laughter as well (and silly silly activities at the hotel). I feel connected to these people and I want to keep that connection. If you guys are reading this, I love ya.

If you love SL'ang Life as much as I do, come to SL'ang Life island on 10 July 2008 at 10 AM (SLT) - we're planning a little goodbye party for our readers. I hope to see you there. Let's have fun and remember SL'ang Life the happy way.

    :( Nooo! Can't Google become your investor? They have millions! Or Linden Lab, after all, you're promoting SL for free.

    @Daed
    I wish one of these companies became our investor... I don't think they would be interested though. Thanks for all the support for Slang, Daed. Your enthusiasm was very motivating and I really wish I could tell you that we're working on next issue instead of closing the magazine. But I guess it's not that easy, eh?

    @Plateau/Uzi
    I do hope so...

    Well... SLang has come to these worlds once already, so surely there must be a way for it to come a second time. At this point, I can't do much more than hope and support.
    SLang will return. It must!

    After all I still have an invitation to send in my Top 5. So it must!
