This not only brings you improves security but each time you share a link to a help page in a SL tip or on the forums, you’ll be able to get to it faster. This is not a dramatic improvement but overall it’ll all add up and bring you faster help and smoother gameplay.
Where can you find SL tips?
Second Life Wiki is a great site but if you’re not finding what you are looking for there are also different places you can go to for Second Life tips and help. SL tips are oftentimes found on forums and are submitted by members that have mastered the game and are willing to share their knowledge with you.
What are Second Life Cheats?
Often times at a forum you’ll also find more unconventional SL tips. These can come in the form of cheats which will improve your game dramatically but Linden Lab doesn’t want you to know about them since they’re not a part of normal gameplay.
With SL cheats you can bypass the game rules and do some amazing things that would otherwise not be possible. That may include anything from duplicating items to making more Linden Dollars than normal.
