Introduction:

Myrl is a social networking platform created to allow players who reside in different virtual worlds to have a chance to meet and talk. Myrl is short for My Real Life/My Role Life. In some ways it's similar to Avatars United, but is focused more on virtual worlds, than massive multiplayer games.

Functionality:

Rating 8.0

<p>New users can log in to the section devoted to their favourite game, create a profile of their in-game evatar, add photos and video files, write articles, create list of friends and collect karma points - which are given for activity in virtual worlds and creating network of friends. If a user has more then one avatar, he can link all of them to one dashboard, which makes ithem easier to manage. New users get the rank of Tourist, while the most experienced ones (with lots of karma points) become Pathmakers. Users can also announce events, important for the virtual worlds community. </p>

Layout:

Rating 7.0

<p>The site is very pleasant to look at, and easy to navigate, divided into clear sections.</p>

Summary:

Rating 7.7

<p>The aim of the site is to 'create an integrated playground with endless possibilities', and it might really help to get the players together, instead of letting them stay in separate virtual worlds forever.</p>
