2017 PEOPLE: IMA: Creating G+ Invites for Open Simulator HyperGrid Events

Creating G+ Invites for Open Simulator HyperGrid EventsThe OpenSim Community previously used Google invitations to invite people to  events.  Then one of Google’s “improvements” in G+  hid the invitation process so well that most of us that most of us couldn’t find it.  With a little help from his frieds, Shawn Maloney found it and here explains how to use it again. Watch on YouTubeCreate & manage events in G+Tips and Tricks from Shawn Maloney: How to create G+ Events (Invites) for Open Simulator HyperGrid Events. Following these steps will help you create G+ Events that can be shared or promoted by others to help get the word out about your events!********************************************More after the break*************************************************Metaverse events, recent and upcomingBagarthach Short Poetry Workshop-Tue 10/17, 7pm SLTThis week the Short Poetry Workshop is the Bagarthach, which is a verse from a sci-fi novel where aliens make things happen by making rhymes.
