Downgrade Membership Question

Recommended Posts

I am not at all sure where to ask this forgive me if it's not in the right place. About a few weeks to a month I upgraded my account but now my RL is getting hectic and i'm not sure if I can stay on SL much longer. I was just wondering if I dowgrade would I be refunded for what I have not used up? Or Not? Just wanted to ask before doing anything. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

nope, no refund.

if you do downgrade to avoid your next payment, make sure you have gotten rid of all the land that might have kept you above the level you want to downgrade to, BEFORE you downgrade... and always downgrade before you remove your payment information if going back to basic.

Well, it's already a sunk cost so whether you keep on using Second Life or go back to reality, the $72 is, sadly, gone. Whether it's "wasted" or not is all relative, but I suppose if you see it as $6 per month and you've only used a month, then you will feel as if you've flushed $66 down the toilet! Worst case - pop back in once a month just to see what's happening ;)

You do get the L$300 per week stipend, which you can cash out for real money. If you don't want to use your tier allowance of 512 sqm, I'll buy it from you from for L$80 per week. Just join one of my groups and contribute 512 sqm of tier to the group.

When you downgrade it doesn`t actually take effect until your current paid-for period expires, so if you have paid for a year, the downgrade would take effect 1 year from when you upgraded.

I'm a bit worrying here.

I downgraded my account. And it will be downgraded somewhere in august.

(I did months ago)

Now they tell me they bill me in july.

Anybody has experience, that they won't bill me for a whole year?

The avie doesn't have any land or contributed land.

I want to downgrade from premium membership to basic. They tell me i can`t own land, I have to give up my land. But how? there is no option to release it. Anybody had that problem before?

You can abandon your land by going into the Land feature inworld and clicking the 'Abandon Land' button on the first tab.

EDIT:  I assume you mean Linden land.  Not all land in SL is linden land.  If you have land on a private region, you can keep it and still have a basic membership.
