I missed it! Make it come back!

Oh hi! I didn't see you come in! You're probably here because you missed the message of the day. It went by to fast, it was to long, or you clicked a link in a goofy motd set up to get you here!

Anyway, if you missed the message of the day and would like to see it again;
At the top of your screen find the “Content” menu and click it.
In the menu that drops down, way down at the bottom select, “Message of the Day”.

There it is, in your local chat as a system message.

[11:28:02] [Firestorm Tip! Did you know you ca… Stop… Wait… Go back… I didn't get to read it all! Grrrr! Clickies!]

You can also scroll down this page and see ALL the current messages of the day in the “events, tips, help and gateway” message of the day rotation. (I keep this page bookmarked as a fast reference to important wiki pages.)

About the Message of the Day.

The Firestorm Message of the Day is currently running on a rotation of thirty eight preset tips, help, gateway and fun messages and/or a varying amount of event messages of the day. All of which are displayed at random when you log in depending on which “MotD Cartridge” is loaded. Go ahead, try it, relog, and unless the message of the day is promoting a special event1) you'll see something different.

The preset messages of the day are split between tips to make your Firestorm Viewer experience more efficient and enjoyable, help topics to help resolve common Firestorm Viewer issues, gateway to spread information about the Firestorm Gateway and fun just because.

I'll list the message of the day presets below so you can see what's in the rotation.

Event Messages of the Day.

These are the current messages of the day for events which are currently running and have been approved for a Firestorm message of the day;

Preset Messages of the Day.

These are displayed randomly and are broken down into three groups;

Tips: Which provide tips on how to get the most out of the Firestorm Viewer and are meant to improve your Second Life experience in some way.

Help: Which provide assistance on self resolving common Firestorm problems which are seen the most in the Firestorm Viewer help groups. These may have also been requested by the Firestorm Support Team at some point.

Gateway: Coming soon! These provide information on what's going on at the Firestorm Gateway, events, event spaces, classes and more.

I'll break them into the same groups below;
