Second Life temporarily closed to new members [Update: not so much]

Second Life recently closed the new registration signup process.

Sorry, we’re currently jam-packed

To ensure the best possible experience for all of our Residents, we are temporarily limiting new account registrations. There’s been a huge influx of new Residents into Second Life and we are working hard to keep up with the demand.

Please check back soon to create your new account. Be sure to use special offer code WAIT76 for a free Linden Lab gift pack. Look for it in your inventory after you log in. Thanks again for your patience.

I don’t see it mentioned on the official Second Life blog yet.

I keep telling people about virtual worlds and they keep signing up for everything from EVE to Second Life.. so inevitably I got a couple of complaints people saying that they want to try SL but can’t. This is a shame, but hopefully won’t last long.

Update:Yoz Linden clarifies the situation in a comment below. Grid back up and registration is open again

  1. Registration is currently down because the whole grid is down for an upgrade, which (if all continues going to plan) will be over within the next two hours. Trouble is, the “jam-packed” page is clearly the wrong one to show in this instance. We’ve filed a bug against this internally and will make a more apt one for next time!

  2. Well while you wait go and try Entropia Universe ,its fee to download no monthly fees,very cool online game with real cash economy very nice community;)
