Month: May 2014


I recently opened another new world on Kitely. It’s called Brown.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, immersing yourself in a virtual world is worth 100,000.

Or am I confusing that with prim count?

In other words, don’t just look at the pretty pictures I posted on flickr – Go! Visit!

HG address:

Alts and “De-alting”

I like creating characters.

I used to create a lot of “alts” (virtual world speak for alternate avatars) in Second Life just because I could. But as I started writing about my virtual life, I wanted to create avatar versions of some of the characters I was writing about. Just for fun. That’s when my total number of alts got out of hand. So I’ve had to kill some off from time to time. Well, I didn’t really “have” to…it’s just my preference. I never used these alts so I decided to get rid of them so I could clear the way for the creation of other alts who are being used…in story.

Every once in awhile I bump off a few more.

Danko’s Worlds

Danko has a new site with links to the virtual world places he is connected with. It has the HG addresses and links to more info on each location.

The idea of this page is to provide information about the locations that many of Danko’s stories take place in as well as other projects Danko is involved in. This information will help other virtual world explorers visit these places.

Have a look…

The site is called Danko’s Worlds.

It will grow this year as I plan to open several more sims.

Danko Whitfield On The Web

All of Danko’s sites have a “Danko On The Web” page which lists all of his blogs and sites on virtual worlds. It lists this one now too. 🙂 That page was updated today across all of Danko’s sites. I should probably add it as a page to this site as well but here it is as a post, for now…

I have several blogs and sites about virtual worlds. Here is your guide to my little publishing empire with links to my social networks at the bottom.

Journey To The Center Of The Metaverse

“One avatar’s battle with the reality of the virtual landscape.” This is my most popular blog in terms of most readers, views, hits, however you wish to measure it. Here I write analysis, commentary/opinion on the virtual issues of the day, often with my own experiences as an example. Occasionally I “break” a story though that is not my mission here. There are also features on people, places, things I bump into around the Metaverse that I think readers might find interesting.

The Further Adventures Of Danko Whitfield, Semi-Retired Time Traveller

“Wandering the Centuries with a Steampunk Explorer.” This is my longest-running virtual world blog, started in May of 2010. It is my RP blog and follows my avatar’s story as a writer, explorer, diplomat, musician, pub owner and semi-retired time traveller. (formerly called, Steaming Along: Danko Whitfield In The 19th Century.)


“A little somewhere in the middle of nowhere.” Somewhere out there, in the vastness known as the Metaverse there is a place called Dankoville. It’s my personal standalone world on the OpenSim. And this is the website and blog that goes with it.

Dankoville Stories

This blog is a collection of stories from or about Dankoville written by myself and others. If you’re interested in writing about Dankoville or roleplay on the grid, please contact me via Google+ or other means.

Danko’s Worlds

Your travel guide to the virtual worlds of Danko Whitfield. This site features links and basic information for the virtual world places with which I’m connected. Some are locations I use in my story writing and others are sims I’ve made or host or live in. It has the HG addresses and links to more info on each location. The information is intended to help interested virtual world explorers visit these places.

Danko Whitfield – Writer, Explorer of Virtual Worlds

“Writer, Explorer of Virtual Worlds.” I guess this is my homepage. I refer to it sometimes as “Danko Central.” If you are interested in more than one of my blogs, this would be a good place to hit the Follow button as I post links to all the latest articles on each of my blogs here. I do put some original material here as well. Usually it’s stuff that I don’t think “fits” anywhere else. 🙂 And I put links to other writing I do about virtual worlds that appears in other places.

My Virtual Blog

“Writing about writing about virtual worlds.” On this blog, my typist writes about being me. What can I say? Everybody wants to get in on the act.

Other online activities…

I have a page called News of the Virtual World

Photos from my virtual travels are on my Flickr page

I’m on Google+ I take part in the discussion community called Opensim Virtual
