Question

Is Linden Labs going to look at land costs during this time?  alot of ppl are loosing income and the cost  of virtual land is rather high. Befour me, and I think alot of people give up their sims / lands, it would be nice to see if you are planning some kind of assistance to keep the world turning until things pick up.

however it would be nice for consumers .. not very realistic ..the electricity bill at Battery Street better gets paid or we all will be in the dark.
Many countries have social security jumping in, many people have to decide what their priorities are.

I truly worry about anyone who has lost income and is having difficulty meeting expenses during these days of COVID-19. If you are one of those people, you should be reducing expenses as much as possible, starting with recreational, non-essential things like Second Life. Come back again when your financial situation is stronger. SL will still be here.

You do NOT need to own land in order to stay active and happy in Second Life (or any other platform).  There are lots of open communities and places to go and explore and hang out. You could join with a group and SHARE a small piece of property and I am guessing that  folks with land will make new areas for those that have to give up their current land holdings. 

 

We don't know what I world will look like when this has passed. It is guaranteed to be different. Likely better in some ways and not so great in others.  The last few days officials in the US have been talking about nine months.  So this is a long haul, watershed experience.  Stay home and stay safe but don't give up your groceries for your virtual life.

No they will not be doing this, SL will shut down rather quickly if they can not continue to pay for their server host, their employee's and other manners of business they do.

Some of the latest news pieces say our vacillator-in-chief is thinking about sending everyone back to work after one more week.  It would appear he's more interested in saving the economy than saving lives.  Well, we knew that.

We're staying isolated regardless, but we can do that...we're retired.

Well many governors as well as mayors have or will keep their own "shelter" lockdowns in effect.  That's promising anyway.  I pretty much skip any article with a picture of the C&F's photo.  :D.   We are in lockdown as of today. Would have been WAY better to have had that happen on Friday before the Millennials invaded the Spring Break areas.  VERY BAD.
