What's your best freebie tip for newbies?

I'm curious. We're (mostly) a very experienced group in SL.

What's your best freeibe tip for newbies? A store that has great group gifts, and a free-to-join group? Some other tip?

Thanks in advance :-)

Ivory Tower of Prims is a great place to get free tutorals for being a creator - which will put you miles above the rest. SL has huge turnover, but people who start creating early on end up being the ones that stick around.

Press F to fly. We're working on a manual. That's what I was told.

Hunts are good for freebies.

Also if you need something specific there are grohps dedicated to freebies. Like when I used the Lolas there was a group for all sorts of advertised free Lolas compatible stuff. "You've been Tangoed" maybe?

Also not quite free, but there are things like 25L Tuesdays, 30L Saturday, and 1Linden1Hour.

I'm curious too, Quip. Why do you ask?

Haven't you been spending most of your time in other worlds lately? Have you come back to SL and are doing some mentoring or something?

The Free Dove.

Also the German Newbie Center if you can stand the lag.

My freebie tip would be to stay away from those big 'freebie' warehouses, unless you want to look like 2005 threw up on you. (Free Dove excluded.) Go to individual shops, join groups, and look for deals meant for "90 days or less" members.

Check FabFree and the other blogs. Hell, learn to check blogs, period. Some of the bigger events will have free goodies occasionally.

Search the marketplace, sort by "lowest price first". Don't be a cheapfuck and put a couple bucks in the game FFS!
