Linden Lab, bring Qarl Linden back!

As reported on his blog, Qarl Linden has been laid off from Linden Lab. Qarl is the developer behind sculpties and flexi prims. He is widely recognized as a competent and productive developer, praised and respected by the people in the company who work with him. Most important of all, Qarl has a key role in the development of mesh imports, a feature lots of content creators in Second Life are eagerly waiting. At the end of July Philip Linden gave a speech inworld that raised hopes and a mild optimism for the future of Second Life. In one week and with a single move, Linden Lab is sweeping away all those hopes. This decision is causing astonishment and lots of distress among Second Life residents, many are raising their voice in protest. The people signing this petition ask that the management at Linden Lab reconsiders this decision. We ask that Qarl Linden is not laid off from the company and that an important project such as mesh import is given all the attention and resources it deserves.

Please sign with your SL name.
