Discussion in the Oyo Lounge: Three Pressure Points for Sansar

Oyo Lounge 2 August 2017

Every day so far this week Jenn,  Linden Lab’s Lead Community Manager for Sansar, has invited avatars to gather at the Oyo Lounge at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time/Sansar Time.  We meet up at Alfy’s experience and chat about various topics: movies, current events, other virtual worlds, etc.

One item of interest that came up during the discussion was the consensus that there are three key pressure/pain points which Sansar needs to pay attention to as it grows in size:

  1. Organization and searching of Atlas listings.  As the number of experiences gets ever-larger, it becomes ever more important to be able to search for and pull up a particular experience quickly.  A Facebook poster, Ørjan Sandland, mentioned a helpful tip: it is possible to keyword search the web page version of the Sansar Atlas using CTRL-F (of course, you have to make sure that the web page is fully loaded before that will work properly). And of course, that trick doesn’t work when you’re in a VR headset.
  2. Organization and searching of Store listings.  Again, as the number of items in the Sansar Store increases, the harder it is to find something.
  3. Organization and searching of your personal inventory.  Veteran Sansar builders have huge inventories now, and have no way to create folders, or search for items, other than scrolling through lines and lines of listings.

The sooner these three pressure points are addressed, the happier we all will be.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s meetup with Jenn at the Oyo Lounge at 2:00 p.m. Sansar time!  Hope some of you can attend and take part in the discussion.
