Sansar Newsblog: Top Ten Referrers

I was just checking out my referrer statistics from WordPress for the Sansar Newsblog. Here are the Top Ten referrer sites, the ones that drive the most traffic to my blog:

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. New World Notes
  4. Google+
  5. Android apps (mostly Slack)
  6. Echt Virtuell
  7. igHome (a personalized homepage service)
  9. Search engines (mostly Google Search)
  10. Reader

Note that I’ve been cross-posting most of my blogposts to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ so that would explain the referrer traffic from those sites. I’ve got a ton of visitors to the blog from Facebook posts to various groups relating to Sansar and virtual reality.

The Slack traffic is due to my cross-posting blog links to the Sansar Slack channel. This is a private channel that Linden Lab used to communicate with the software testers during the closed beta test, and it will soon be shut down. Linden Lab plans to set up a public Discord server to replace it.

After the United States, Germany is the country with the second-highest number of visitors to my blog, probably due to Echt Virtuell and other German blogs and forums.


How to Change the Sky in Sansar

Liz (a.k.a. Isabelle Cheren) has a blog called Chich-y TzaTziki and she has written a blogpost and posted a YouTube video showing you how to change the skybox in your Sansar experiences. Here’s the link to her blogpost and her YouTube video:

“The pioneers are the ones with the arrows in their backs.”

I (and several other people) have discovered some problems with content creation using Microsoft Windows 10’s free app, Paint 3D. I have updated my original blogpost so you might want to go back and re-read it.

Here’s a Facebook post where we discuss the problems we have encountered. (I’m not sure if you can see this Facebook post if you are not already a member of Facebook. Can somebody please try that link and let me know if it doesn’t work? Thank you.)

This image was taken by Flickr user Isabelle Cheren, and it is titled They’re Coming For You. It was posted to the Sansar Official photo pool.

Isabelle also posted this picture to the Sansar group on Facebook, saying:

What simply stunning graphics and no Photoshop! Why would I need to, with graphics like this.

This picture was taken in Loz Hyde’s Sansar experience called Hunter Killer.
