Goodbye Avatars United

26 09 2010

Recently i was trying to access the website “Avatars United” to modify my profile and even talk with some friends and always get a “this action was rejected” message, wich i found strange. Until i´ve received this email from the Second Life team explaining that the website wont exist anymore ….

Saying Farewell to Avatars United
Dear Avatars United Member,
In January of this year, Linden Lab purchased Avatars United for its underlying social technology and to integrate powerful social networking capabilities into the Second Life experience.
Today, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue Avatars United and will be taking down the site on September 29, 2010. Over the next week, we encourage you to save any pieces of content (such as pictures, friend’s names, etc.) that you want to keep. We will also soon update you on your AU Coin refund, if you have an account balance.
Over the two and a half years since launching Avatars United, we have welcomed avatars from many virtual worlds and MMOs to connect on our platform as the only social network catering to the needs of virtual identities. We are proud to have served those needs and honored to have shared this journey with you all.
Going forward, pieces of the Avatars United technology will be integrated into the Second Life platform to support a richer, and more dynamic, community experience. Read more about these efforts on the Second Life blog.
Thank you for being a member of the Avatars United community, and part of the Second Life family.

Sincerely,

The Avatars United/Second Life Team

 

Well it was fun to be part of that website as a member but if they decided to do that , it´s their decision. So farewell Avatars United….
