Basilique to close – will review transfer proposals

I’ve decided that I will no longer keep up the Basilique (Isolotto di Garda) region in Second Life and will close it on September 30th, 2017. I’ve enjoyed maintaining the region and hope that you have enjoyed visiting it as well.

I have, from time to time, heard expressions of interest from several people on taking over ownership of the region. If you have a serious interest in this, then I will read any proposals I receive for the full region (non-severable) by the 23rd of September.

The full region costs USD 295.00 per month and the transfer fee is USD 100.00. I’m not looking to make extra bucks from any transactions but would be happy to transfer the region (and use of all the public buildings and furnishings) to someone who wishes to keep it alive.

If I don’t receive or accept any serious transfer proposals, I will refund any rentals monies paid by tenants beyond the 30th, on that date. I will also return all objects to tenants on that date. I will close the region shortly thereafter.

Thanks for everything,

Canary Beck

P.S. If you wish to propose a transfer send me an email to and ideally, send me an IM, so that you remind me to check my email.

    Jeez I need to get out more. I didn’t even know this place existed. Sadness.

    Dear Becky. I want to thank you for all the great times in the Basilique. Your attitide, to see virtual reality as an expansion of one’s reality, and doing experiments from there, was a path I took from you. In the Salons, so many RL and SL issues were discussed in a highly personally developing structured way; you had a sense of where people might be able to go, and then gently push them in that direction. And, oh, had we great fun in between, with the fascinating crowd you gathered. I hope our ways will cross in SL.

    Hey Canary, sorry to hear of the pending closure of your beautiful sim. I was one of the many people who attended ‘Lost Paradise’ and some other events. Best wishes and thank you again for bring alive a wonderful sim at Basilique and island to visit.

    Hey Becky, I so wish you well and finding Basilique was the reason I continued on in SL as much as I did. I enjoyed the discussions and met many people. The one production I saw there was superb. I have since gone on to be invited to show my work in many places which has been well received and I collaborated on a story book sim based on one of my stories. The arts are alive and well in the virtual world! Thank you Becky for being so welcoming and for your great “Italian” sim!! I wish you well in all your artistic endeavours!!
