Well, my time is finally up at Starting Point. I've said before, but I'll say it again quite what a great idea it is. In case you don't know it's basically an apartment block where noobs can rent (for free!) a room for 80 days. I think it's 80.
To be honest it didn't quite work for me perfectly, as the time difference meant no-one was there hardly ever. It was nice to have somewhere to call home for sure, and I love the provision of a pool and a games room and beach and jetskis etc, but the place was mainly deserted when I was around. However, don't get me wrong, I would recommend the place to noobs. Especially given the helper group that exists.
When you are granted residence you join the SP group. And as part of this group you can just IM the group and one of the helpful volunteers will reply forthwith.
And now, the news, the reply you get may even be from me!
I've been asked to join the helper team and I happily accepted. Maybe I'll fill a niche if any other noobs in the bottom right-hand corner of the atlas ever move in to SP.
Oh, and as a subnote, I guess I should have known about TVs in SL after all. Given there's a huge communal one at Starting Point.
