Prokofy Neva Posted October 17, 2019 Share Posted October 17, 2019 (edited) I was amused to see a fellow make a video about waiting endlessly for his Bellissaria home: Then I saw somebody made houses in what is called "Bellissaria Waiting Room," so I guess you can sit in your non-Linden houseboat and gaze wistfully across the sea. I actually snagged a lot somebody let go for a low price across from Bellissaria, which I named "Sailing to Bellissaria" but you can't actually do that without a lot of portage because of the "Linden Dead Sea". I have a filling the Lindens will never fill in these areas with "void sims" to enable sailing, as they haven't on the shores of Alston and Furness and so on, so you hit a wall as you do on a private island. I added a skeleton refreshing his page endlessly in my Halloween installation: So this brings me to the question: WHY ISN'T THERE A SIGN-UP SHEET? Why force people to endlessly refresh pages and trample each other trying to get these houses??? It's insane. It wastes energy and resources. Why not just create a system where you file a ticket? First come, first served. Lindens and Moles work their way through these lists. There *is* a precedent for this, which was the move to Zindra. If you wanted to exchange Mainland mature for Zindra, you put in a ticket with a list of the SLURLS of several lots of your CHOICE. You weren't randomly assigned because it had to be the equivalent in square meters, more or less. There really isn't any reason for this that I can tell. A separate category could be created in the ticket system -- or not. That way people don't sit and endlessly refresh or speculate. They just get in line. The line moves slowly, but it moves. I'm happy not to pursue them and leave them for others, as I don't have patience to refresh pages or wait months for something I can't rent out to cover costs (it's not allowed). But it seems crazy not to have a fair and more efficient system like this. Edited October 17, 2019 by Prokofy Neva Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
