Open Letter to the Residents of Nova

 Hi :)

 My name is Hylee Bekkers and I started out in Second Life back in 2006, although my Rez date says April 2007 (long story ;)).  Back then, the people that I met were more interested in perfecting their art and growing the virtual community.  Nova reminds me of those early days, but with much better technology :)

Anyway..... I believe, despite the growing pains that we are all experiencing here, there is great potential in Nova and I want to do my part to help it and it's residents grow.

I love building, creating new things, teaching people what I have learned, and learning from other people who share my passion for the virtual arts.

The developers of Aurora and the owners of Nova can only do so much.  I created Ptarmigan Park and the Made by Hylee (FREE) store to share what I have, but I would like to do more.

I would like to see a group developed to help existing residents achieve their goals, help newbies find their way, and promote Nova to other people.  This group could also be the first layer in a help system much like the forums are on the internet or the SL Mentor program before it was dismantled.

If you are interested in the same thing or already have a group like this, please contact me at or IM me inworld.

Thank You
Hylee Bekkers

I've been exporting textures out of Second Life and ran across a picture of my first build in April of 2007!

I was so proud of this..... at the time.  Wow!

Hylee April 2007 and Hylee today!

This was not my first avatar.  My first was a white wolf.
This is the way I look today in Second Life, Nova, Inworldz, and OSGrid.
