Mingoville.com is by the developers described as a virtual universe and it includes what they call a virtual world (MMO) part with flamingo avatars where you can safe chat with other flamingos, play games together with other players, explore Mingoville which consists of among other a beach, a forest, a basket ball lane, a school, a club, a café, a fruit and vegetable shop, a fishing shop etc. There is in-world transportation via among other helicopter and boat. You can buy things in Mingoville, and Christmas was selebrated in Mingoville. It is designed by Mingoville A/S with a reference to being a world, so I would say that it ought to be on the list as it represents a variation of a what it may mean to be a virtual world. See: http://www.mingoville.com/da/blog.html. Of course the actual engagements with Mingoville, whether and how users experience Mingoville as a world is a whole other interesting (and not at all general) aspect. Thanks for a great workshop this week. I learned a lot :-). As you know my definition of a virtual world is relationally and empirically defined.

I am certain some on this list are debatable about fitting into such a taxonomy, given how they are defined. Do you believe it would qualify, based on your definition of what is a virtual world?
