Extropia Core Expands

Despite being a frequent absentee, I remain an avid fan of Sophrosyne's Salon at Extropia Core, and the eclectic gathering who converge there every Saturday for a talk or presentation from some luminary or another, followed by (or often interspersed with) a general chinwag. It's a fun event. The Extropia Core sim seems to change radically between each visit - but has now compounded this rate of change by adding another sim: Extropia.

Although the sim newly minted, the Extropia builders - Vidal Tripsa and Galatea Gynoid - have been beavering away to make it habitable. Parcels are available for rent here, however, before you rush into it, you might want to bear the following in mind: "We will REQUIRE two references from current citizens for all applications. The Board reserves the right to veto any application. To be added to the waiting list, IM Sophrosyne Stenvaag with the names of your references and the parcel size you would like." So that's a bit more stringent that Anshe Chung then.

I don't know what the sim will finally look like - maybe it will look like it does now. But since the group has opened it to wanderers and itinerant ramblers, I thought you might like to see it:

Wow! Thanks for the coverage, Al! You've beautifully showcased Vidal's and Gala's hard work, and the builds of our Citizens.

You're family, even if we haven't seen much of each other lately.

We've got more infrastructure to lay down: a conference center, a beach boardwalk, possibly a nightclub - but most of what we'll become will be determined by the people who move in.

That reference requirement isn't meant to be exclusionary: we're a community, not a real estate development. So, we want to ensure that the people who come to us really *want* to be part of a group that hangs out, builds, and parties together.

We welcome everyone who wants to be part of a positive vision of the future, one with lots of opportunities to do whatever you might find fun!

Thanks Soph...
Actually I do feel part of the family, more thanks to twitter than my erratic attendance at the Salon.

I think the requirement for a couple of references is entirely reasonable, and indeed constitutes sound practice, particularly when someone is looking to join a community, and not just rent a parcel.

It's great to see what has been achieved in such a short time, and is testament either to the group's enthusiasm - or addiction! :-)
