Ozimals Holiday and Community Meeting Schedule

Greetings Bunny Peeps!

As you know, we have entered the holiday season, and Ozimals wants to give you a heads-up for our schedule changes and limited support days between now and the New Year.

**Community Meetings Go to Bi-Weekly for the Holiday Season**

So that we can continue our strong focus on wrapping up open projects and making progress on our new projects despite the normal holiday rush and off days, we are taking the Community Meetings to biweekly beginning this week and continuing through the New Year. We will of course, have additional meetings if needed and supplement with Bunny Bytes newsletters to keep you updated. The schedule for Community Meetings between now and the beginning of January will be as follows:

Nov. 29th
Dec. 13th
Dec. 27th
Jan. 10th

That means that there will not be a Community meeting tomorrow, November 21st. After the Jan 10th meeting, we will evaluate to see if we need to go back to a weekly schedule or if biweekly is preferred by the community. Let us know your thoughts in January :)

**Holiday Limited Support Days**

Everyone wants to spend time with their loved ones during the holidays, and our hard working and dedicated Ozimals staff definitely deserves to do that! On the days listed below we will have limited support online and in our ticket system.

Limited support means there may or may not be CSRs in-world on shifts. We do have some people working shifts on some of the days below but there won't be constant coverage. But don't worry! You are always able to file a ticket 24/7 on our support site - http://support.ozimals.com

Tickets filed on these days will be addressed on the next business workday.

November 25th, 26th and 27th
December 24th, 25th and 26th
December 31st, January 1st and January 2nd

We appreciate your patience and we wish you and yours all the best during this holiday season!

Much Wintery <3,

Your Ozimals Team

What special memories do you have of Oz during the past two years? What new spots have you discovered that have become instant favorites? Pull out your camera and capture a story to share with us. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so start writing your Oz adventures today!

Oh, and if you are wondering, the Ozimals Bunnies are so excited about the celebrations taking place for the 2nd anniversary of Magic of Oz in Second Life that they convinced Candy and Malk to give 1st place prizes of Ozimals Bunny Warren Packs to the winners of the Oz Revisited Photo Contest!

The 2nd Oziversary: Oz Revisited Photo Contest is brought to you by the Magic of Oz sim.

2. You must take the picture at the Magic of Oz or Ozimals sims and it must be obvious that this is where you took the picture. The picture can be taken anywhere on either sim so explore and find the spot that speaks to you. :)

3. You must be a member of the Magic of Oz Flickr Group.

4. Entrants are limited to a maximum of two entries. Only one picture from any one resident can win a place (i.e. 1st or 2nd prize).

7. Entries uploaded after Midnight SLT time on the 21th of November, 2010 will not be entered in the contest.

There are TWO categories, but you may enter only one of them, so choose carefully:


Category 1: Photographic.

This category is for those who do not wish to or do not use image editing software such as Photoshop, Gimp or Paintshop etc. This category is there for those who rely solely on in world lighting, set, costume, shot perspective etc.

You may however crop your picture but that is the extent of any photo manipulation. Those entering this category who are found to have not kept by these simple and clear guide lines will be disqualified.

Photographic Category Prizes:

2nd Prize: Prize package containing various gifts from MoO and Ozimals merchants

Category 2: Post Processing.

This category is for those who wish to use such image editing software as Gimp, Photoshop or Paintshop etc. Basically the rules here are "if we can still make out that you are at Oz and have a product from a participating Oz or Ozimals merchant, you're good to go." Although of course, less can be more.

Post Processing Category Prizes:

1st Prize: Ozimals Bunny Warren Pack
2nd Prize: Prize package containing various gifts from MoO and Ozimals merchants

Winners will be notified by November 30.

It's Oziversary Time at Magic of Oz!

The seasons are changing once again on Oz as we welcome Autumn to our Emerald lands, and with the arrival of the falling leaves we also have exciting news. Magic of Oz is two years old! Starting Friday, November 12 and running through Sunday, November 21, we will be enjoying over a week of festive activities including the Over the Rainbow Hunt, the 2nd Oziversary: Oz Revisited Photo Contest and a Fancy Dress Gala Ball so big it will spill over two magical days!

The Over the Rainbow Hunt starts at 1pm SLT on Friday, November 12. There is nothing else in Second Life that can quite compare to the flair and excitement that is encapsulated in a Magic of Oz hunt. With prizes from 19 merchants across two sims, this hunt promises to be a must do event! For the Over the Rainbow Hunt you will be collecting Magic Pearls as they rez across the Magic of Oz and Ozimals sims in order to procure Bluebirds that will allow you to gain gifts from the Rainbows located in each participating store.

Once you have finished the Over the Rainbow Hunt and thoroughly explored both sims in search of hidden Magic Pearls you will be in the perfect frame of mind to enter the 2nd Oziversary: Oz Revisited Photo Contest where you have the chance to show us Oz through your eyes. What favorite memories do you have of Oz during the past two years? Take a picture and share your stories with us. Both the Over the Rainbow Hunt and the 2nd Oziversary: Oz Revisited Photo Contest will run from November 12 - November 21.

To finish out the week of Oziversary celebrations we will be having not one, but two fancy dress balls, so no matter where you are in the world, you will hopefully be able to join us in celebrating another year of Magic of Oz in Second Life. On Saturday, November 20 from 5-7 pm SLT and on Sunday, November 21 from 11-1 pm SLT, we will be dancing up a storm to the musical stylings of DJ Sierra Sugar as we dream of the adventures we will have in Oz during the next year! Come and join us and be part of the celebrations! They won't be the same without you!
