I want to share with the three people who read my blog this email I sent back in February to the core team of burn2. I left on my own accord and was not forced out made to leave or fired. I still believe in burn2 and I also believe this event is one of the last great ones in second life.

Greetings team,
I am writing this email after a few months of reflection and soul searching. My life has changed both in sl and rl. I am no longer able to commit to things like I use to be able to. And that’s not fair to the event, volunteers, or to any of you. between my fathers health issues and my personal life and work commitments ever changing.

There fore when the time Diana’s world calms and she is able to once again commit to burn, I will be resigning as the co-lead of DPW.

Diana has shown countless times her deep commitment to the event and the community filling in where needed without question. She has always strived to better the event and make it grow into what it has become and what it will be in the future. You should all trust her decision making skills and let her grow as much as possible she will not let you down I’m sure.

This will wait till after the April fools event and occuplaya have ended. As i have committed to be a part in those events. Unless Diana requests I leave sooner. I know her personal life is in flux currently so to alivate any tensions or commitments she currently has and to proceed in a transitional phase. I plan on being retired by the beginning of may.

It has been a very hard and personal choice to come to. I plan on serving still in a emeritus role for DPW and will still be available to anyone who has questions or is in need of my help in any way. But the time has come for me to move along.
As a personal request I ask that you please keep this email as confidential information till may. But I felt it was best to inform you all now of my future plans. I’m not leaving second life just going to explore other things beyond burn2 on the grid.

Funny how life changes and things we loved to do grow faded. I have nothing but respect for you all. And nothing but well wishes to you, the community and the event.

All creations I’m still holding that can be transferred will be gifted to m2 burner and to Diana for usage as the core, dpw, and Diana deem fit.

Respectfully,

Kev Sweetwater

And so in case you didn’t know I’m no longer a member of burn2 as a departmental leader any more. I wish them nothing but great things and long prosperity in all endeavors and to Diana I say you can do it better than me I know you can make that event come to greater heights than I ever could have.

A few more than 24 hours remain till the official opening of burn2 in second life. I wanted to take a moment and give some information on how to best enjoy the burn and the playa.

– if your a long time resident of second life you know prims, flexible prims, sculpties, and scripts cause lag. Take off that hair, toss the boots, wear simple clothes and remove those Huds and animation overrides (ao’s) it will help

– talk to people all people be nice and friendly ask questions and make friends.

– explore let the playa guide you wander the roads see the sights take photos and enjoy it

– visit the schwag tent for all kinds of free gifts from the burners

– thank a volunteer some spent weeks, months and a entire year on making this happen. They deserve a thank you.

– be open and free express yourself, become a participant, burn2 isn’t a visitor event it’s a participant event we all make it what it is in our own way.

In the end before you leave stop an look around you and know your a part of the community and this is your event.
