When did you last see a Bellessarian home available?

I think some of you are enjoying the catch-and-release game now more than actually having a home!

Will there ever be a perfect location that makes you stop, or are you on an endless quest for unattainable perfection? 

For me it's not perfection I seek since every location is flawed some where, either by oddly placed bushes and trees that make no sense, or neighbors with some funky taste of lawn decor. xD ....I myself enjoy the tension of will I or will I not get a home this refresh....plus for the ones of us who do enjoy the "Catch & release" we're giving others a higher chance of securing a home. I even sit at homes I abandoned just to see how long it will take to be snatched up...the longest it took anyone to grab it was 24 seconds. However, if I get a home on top of a hill with stairs going down I'll keep that one since it'll be high enough to look over boat houses if near by and or not being eye level with giant rubber dolls and those animals people breed. I thought I wanted an ocean view...but most of those people in the ocean front homes have a houseboat view xD and I don't find that visually appealing it's like having a view of a parking lot except it's on water. But more or less it's just to see how quickly I can grab another and will it be the big fish I want or the lil teaser that you only keep for a night or two but after that you send it back out because it's not appealing nor worth having it longer to you.

Wow, we're halfway through August and it's still just as hard to get a houseboat as it was in June!  I hope the camper/trailer release gives more opportunities for more people to get in on this.

The Moles have been steaming along, hang in there.

I'm not sure I believe this part is true. There is a finite number of houses and boats, and the ones playing it as a game with the auto-refresh and repeatedly mashing the F5 key are creating an additional and unnecessary load on the website and back-end servers. The number of page errors people receive is indicative of something going wrong, and since that seems to happen most often when there is a release and people frantically scurrying to the website, I have a hard time believing there's not a correlation. 

I don't care about people and their alts getting 4 or 5 different parcels (they're paying for that privilege), but it would seem that maybe instead of the constant mini-DDoS attacks, it would be nice if people just held on to what they get until things calm down some, and let the people who have nothing and aren't obsessing about the perfect spot have a chance. 

People can do whatever they want, of course, but this thread and the inworld hoopla when a region is released is feeding the frenzy and keeping it at Defcon 1, causing a somewhat false sense of scarcity. The number of times some people are able to catch and release shows that it isn't impossible to get a home anymore, but it is for people making more casual attempts rather than devoting nearly their entire SL to the quest for the mythical perfect location.

My auto-refresh pinged twice in the last half-hour but every time I go to check it tells me I've exceeded the refresh limit. It's set to 100 seconds, so either my plugin is malfunctioning or they've decreased the limit. Going to try setting it to 120 now and see how I go.

Hmm. I have yet to get a page error, so if others are I can see some level of frustration perhaps. And I've actually missed every single time they released...And funny thing is..I only found out about the new homes towards the end of July...so needless to say I def missed the first release xD I have children in RL so SL and summer vacation don't mix well, as well as how often I'm able to be online during the day when vacation is over...so I've accepted I'll never make it to a release. I've gotten the homes I happened to land only because someone abandoned it.

Here's the houseboat I am about to release. Literally as soon as I've finished typing - I've cleaned up. It's on the corner of Seal Point and the canal as you can see. It has a sunset view and depending on your specs / draw distance a view of the whole lake and the lighthouse. Truly lovely home. We only need one home so this one is going to someone who really wants water. Let me know who gets this I am off to push the button!

I was just about to congratulate you on your wonderful new location.... and then I read you're on the verge of giving it up. 😄 Very generous of you, though! 👍
