About a site called second life were you could create your own virtual self as you see yourself I downloaded the download and created an account etc. Then when it came to logging in it crashed, has anyone else found this site and had a better result with it. It's supposed to be the new future myspace phenomenon were you can earn something called lindenberg dollars and convert them to real dollars in this virtual world that you create!.

No it's still slow loading and doesn't even load at all, so boo hoo, I hope you have better luck with it?!

SL is always crashing! Well no, that's not strictly true, but they do have a lot of issues, mainly due to the vast number of people playing at any one time (upwards of 30,000 now). If it's down to you computer specs, there isn't a great deal you can do about it other than improving them. You do need a good processor and a fair bit of RAM, plus a good internet connection. You won't get very far on dial-up. A decent graphics card is needed too, although to a certain extent you can compensate for that by turning the graphics down within the game. You may just have picked a time when the site was having problems, or was updating. Have you been back and tried again and have you also made sure your pc meets the minimum specifications? If you can get in, it's well worth it. I love the place and the only reason I'm not there now is because the site is having issues ... again (lol).

Yes,my computer des meet the requirements and no I have not been back, I'll probably re-join when they have a larger server, as I still can't log in to start!

I've had issues with it too. Seems like something different everytime I try to log on. One time my character started walking and wouldn't stop. She walked right off the island out over the water and just kept going... Was kinda funny, but at the same time, not. Another time, it kept logging me out. I'd be in the middle of doing something and poof, the window is gone. I think I'm gonna wait a few weeks and then try again. Looks like they're actively addressing some bugs right now.

I'm also waiting a bit as bugs can cause the problems, I just hope they are fixed soon as I was looking forward to being part of second life.
