In over a year, i have witnessed the forum ban n run off hundreds of people with many of them being your friends, who just happen to be the same people who log in to support Second Life in existence every day.
some of you, are only helping kill the place faster, but you do not care, being you have not logged into the grid in years.

I have told my friends in Inworldz, it really does not matter how bad SLU treats the grid,its nothing compared to how they treat each other and the quickly drying up older residents who once made second life great, it might be 100x more damaging.


Taken Raindrops advice! thank you n goodbye!

honesty, when i want to screw over a friend, i invite them to join SLU!


P.S anyone else miss Pancake, she had a great sense of humor.

So long!

A landlord can "buydown" the tier on their regions to grandfathered pricing. $295 > $195 for a $600 fee on fulls, and $125 > $95 for a $180 fee on homesteads. If bought down during a region transfer $600 on fulls, $300 on homesteads.

Zoha is offering some version of this for his sims. Someone rents, pays whatever fee corresponds to that parcel size, they pay a reduced rent for how ever long they are there.

One of my renters heard about the promotion and went and talked with them. Hey, cheaper land is cheaper, no hard feelings on my part for sure! What he learned was 1. The buydown pricing was not transferable to another region if he moved within the estate, or even within that region itself if he moved within the region. It also was not transferable to their partner should they split and the partner stayed on. 2. Yes, they would charge the next renter the same buydown fee (or promo fee) as well if they wanted lower pricing as long as the promo was running. I have the convo log that they emailed to me.

The big thing is, the way the region pricing is coded to the sim. Not all of my grandfathered regions say that they are in About Land > Covenant or Region/Estate > Region. I personally charge accordingly. GF'ed sims are a little cheaper to my residents. Most do not. The ones that are bought down are supposed to show a special code of their own. However, not all do. One landlord I know was thrilled that their newly bought down regions didn't show that they were! Once the current renter who paid the fee for the buydown moves, they will charge the higher rent, or offer to buy it down once again! Straight out told me so.

That would be foolish since the vast majority of posters are not personal friends with Cris. But, apparently you didn't get the hand holding and midnight walks on the beach you were hoping for from the forum admin. It's hard not being special. Poor little flower.

Since like 5 people have been banned in the last couple years, the gulf between your observation skills and realty is interesting.

SL is an entertainment format and a business, not a charity or a religion. No one is obligated to support it beyond its usefulness to them. Quite the martyr complex you have there.

And your Inworldz friends are so totally into your company and wisdom that you had to come here trolling for attention. You know that your alts don't count as friends, right?

Why would you want to screw over your friends? Is it the voices? Are they telling you to do these things?

She'd also be the first to tell you to go fuck yourself. And your agenda. Funny you invoke both Luna and Pancake.

  1. I gave you some advice? That's nice of me, I suppose, but I... can't remember.
  2. Wait, stop the press: I gave someone some advice and they listened?!?

I suspect Biker was trying to imagine what a normal person does when they have friends. It's all theoretical to him.

He's upset because the spammers have been banned? Were they close personal friends?

On a related note...the quality of trolls has certainly deteriorated. And so have our titles. WTF? We went from hive-minded nest of vipers to "Cris Friends Social Network"? We're losing it, people. We need to up our game and our Kumbaya-Around-The-Fire nights!

And, Sal...I'm glad you're back. I really missed you saying things I'm thinking much more eloquently than I can.

As far as I know, Zoha is a solid and responsible company. I've not had customers who used to be with them and had a bad experience. But making people pay for buydown...on a parcel, not a full sim? That's kinda crappy. Choosing to buy down or not is a business decision, and should be factored in to overall costs, not saddled on individual residents.

So there's some ancient thread that has dogsex as a tag. Why does dogsex show as the most important search term under advanced search?

Dogsex is the only word in the whole cloud that is pervy. Even though the internet is pervy that wouldn't be the one pervy thing for people to search for.

Are you really this deeply fascinated by a single tag? Look, the search tag cloud is not a simple "search results" but rather more like "tags that have matched search results." Tags on threads are common but it's unlikely we have a lot of them that most porn seekers would be keyed into (despite Ingrid's membership).

Though there is a fetish for everything. But let's be glad certain popular tags aren't currently pulling the sickos in.
