Nika Talaj Posted November 6, 2019 Share Posted November 6, 2019 (edited) OK, so you have a camper, yay! Now that premium avatar is also holding 512 in tier they're not using. Not having thought about tier in donkey's years, I'm a little bemused by that. If you plan to only keep your camper for a few months, and you don't know anything about how tier works, it's probably best to ignore the spare 512. Who knows, maybe later you'll abandon the camper and want to get a traditional or HB, and then you'll need a full 1024 available tier. But let's say you get a WONDERFUL camper that you think you'll keep for a year. Should you do something with that tier, and if so, what? The knowledge base has this old article covering the basics of tier and land: https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/buying-land-r14/ I went to the land forum, and was disappointed to not see a helpful sticky about tier and land. However, threads discussing relevant topics crop up all the time and get informative posts like this one: https://community.secondlife.com/forums/topic/444473-donate-land-to-a-group/?tab=comments#comment-1993934 So what are your options? Let me preface this by saying that most of the older forumites here know more than I do about tier, so please do weigh in, folks. I think there are 4 options: 1. Donate the tier to a group. This would be a group that owns land and needs to pay for it, like The Forum Cartel or SL Humanists. Qie touches on how to do that in the post I pointed to above. 2. Get a 512 on mainland. You would have to purchase the 512 via the normal land auction process, but after that there would be no monthly charge. I believe that if you find a parcel that you like on Mainland but it's in maintenance and not available for purchase, you can file a ticket, and LL may make it available to you directly. 3. If you have 10 campers or something, form your own group, donate all the extra tier to it, and get a big parcel on Mainland, hooray! 4. Sell your extra tier to an existing mainland rental company, if they're still doing that. Basically, the way it usually worked is that you join a group of theirs and donate your tier to the group. Then you get a discount on renting land from them, and you pay the remaining rent in Lindens. REMEMBER, when dealing with LHs and tier in general, if your available tier falls below the amount needed to support your land (for example, if you rely on automatically renewing your monthly membership and the credit card for your account declines the charge) BOOM the land is gone. I think nowadays you may get a few days grace, but there are many horror stories about people having builds and communities that went poof overnight due to inattention to the calendar!
