    UPDATE: The limited-time opportunity for existing Premium members to lock in their current rates for one more billing cycle, including extending an existing monthly to use the current full year rate by upgrading now to annual is now available on the premium page. Simply renew before June 24th to extend your current Membership at the same low rate. For example, monthly members will be billed at the lower rate for one more monthly billing cycle, while annual members may renew (or monthly users may upgrade to annual) early to add one more year to your existing Membership at the current lower rate. If you have any trouble accessing the website, please note that it may be due to an increase in traffic and that the option will be available until the end of the day on June 24th. On May 29, we made an announcement about future changes to Premium and Basic account features including plans to increase Group Memberships and offline IM limits for Premium account holders while reducing them for Basic accounts. We’ve since heard strong and convincing feedback from many in our community about the impact of changing Group Membership limits for Basic accounts. For example, many Residents have shared how they rely heavily on Groups to stay informed about new product releases as Merchants use this feature to regularly communicate news and updates to their customers, and how much Groups are used for keeping communities active. We hear your concerns and, as a result, Group Membership limits for Basic Residents will NOT be reduced as part of our Premium Membership changes rolling out on June 24. While Basic Members will continue to have an unchanged limit of 42 groups, all Premium Members will still see their limits increased from 60 to 70. Here’s the revised summary of Premium feature changes: Our goal is to increase Group performance for everyone - whether you are Basic or Premium. As a result, we will be prioritizing some development resources to address Group performance. We know change can sometimes be frustrating, so we appreciate your patience. Your feedback is helping to inform some of these revisions, so we’ll continue to listen closely. Please see the original blog post for all pricing changes planned for June 24. Land prices will decrease as announced on June 3, and existing Premium Members can lock in their current rates for one more billing cycle.* Simply pre-pay between June 3 and the end of the day on June 24 to extend your current Membership by one more cycle at the current low rate. Thank you again for all of the feedback. We do not make these kinds of decisions lightly but are always open to the feedback, criticism, and ideas from our incredible community, and willing to listen and learn. * We will update our blog when the availability to lock in your current rate goes live on Monday. If you have any trouble accessing the website on that day, please note that it may be due to an increase in traffic and that the option will be available until the end of the day on June 24th.

    Don't worry, I still have it (it's all inside my rezzer system), but I decided to 'Kira-fy' things a bit. 😀 Which is to say, whilst very classical, in a way (what with the Rembrandt and the golden chandelier and all), I decided to brighten up the place a bit: make it more vibrant and colorful -- and, I think, a bit more befitting a 'light' houseboat theme: Being able to save some prim this way, I was able to install a 'seashell' bathroom. That area, along with where the big, pink slushy is, is still a bit emptier than I'd like, but at least no longer almost barren: And a final close-up shot of the bedroom area:

    Dress: !gO!, "Brigitte Mondrian Dress - 2" Hair: Mina, "Hannah" Date: June 1, 1965 Place: Hyde Park, London Music: The Kinks, "You Really Got Me." So what do you do when a sweet and delightful friend gifts you with an Yves Saint Laurent !gO! Mondrian dress? Well, if you're clever (like me!), you rush out and buy the Mina hairstyle you've been secretly lusting after, and then make your way to Hyde Park for a modeling session, where you strike your very best pouty 60s vamp look while swinging to The Kinks. *turns off her model pout for a moment* Taya (@Angelina String), this was so unexpectedly darling of you! Thank you!

    It really is significant, having LL solicit and then adjust course based on forum feedback. It makes the whole SL experience seem more like a community in partnership with LL. These forum-LL dialogues have been happening more and more over the last couple of years, and I think the result is a more collaborative relationship as we all work together to help SL thrive. They also make the forums a much more valuable resource. Thank you Grumpity and all LIndens!

    Thar be dragons in these here lands! I was just minding my business, doing a little fishing, when I heard this deep swooshing sound. Two dragons flew right by me! I think someone has been poking that dragon eye that was found in the mountains. (As a side note, those avatars were awesome! I wish I could have gotten a better screenshot, but they were really fast)

    Rhonda's photo guide. Google up a back drop and put it on a prim. ((My sunset search.)) Stand in front of your backdrop and take the pic. Crop with Irfan View, Paint, Photos or whatever you have and resize for web page display. OK, so not as good as Orwar's pictures ...

    ***This blog has been updated as of 9:00 am PT on 06/11/2019 to reflect that Quarterly premium payment options will continue to be available to new signups until we are ready to unveil the new additional Premium plan. *** ***This blog post has been updated as of 2:40 pm PT on 06/03/2019 to reflect that the purchase option to lock in another cycle is now available. Please read below for more information *** *** This original blog post has been updated as of 04:55 pm PT on 05/31/2019 and is noted below where the updates have been made*** UPDATE: The limited-time opportunity for existing Premium members to lock in their current rates for one more billing cycle, including extending an existing monthly to use the current full year rate by upgrading now to annual is now available on the premium page. Simply renew before June 24th to extend your current Membership at the same low rate.

LAND PRICE REDUCTIONS Full Region Prices Reduced Again! It’s happening again! As Second Life begins its 16th birthday next month, we’re celebrating by reducing Full Region prices by as much as $20/month! That’s more savings than ever to build, create and design your own home, business or experience in Second Life. This round of pricing changes continues our commitment to improving the overall health of the Second Life economy, which had historically overly relied on payments for land. This change follows last year’s 15% Private Estates price drop and 10% Mainland price reduction and doubling of land allotment for Premium Members. Excitingly, this is the first time we’re also lowering prices on grandfathered and buydown regions! Check out the latest savings: * Please note that these price reductions do not apply to Skilled Gaming Regions. Education/Nonprofit (EDU/NP) discounted full islands will be re-priced to maintain their 50% discount off the regularly priced full islands. Further, Residents who live in some European Union countries may also be charged value-added tax (VAT) on Land fees in accordance with sales tax regulations. Please visit our VAT Policy page for more details and our Corporate Pricing page for a list of impacted countries. PREMIUM & BASIC ACCOUNT CHANGES New Perks, Price Changes & More We’re also increasing the value of Premium Membership with higher limits on Group memberships and increasing caps on offline Instant Messages (IMs). These changes are coming just a few weeks after the debut of new themes and larger options for Linden Homes, which are available exclusively to Premium Members (who may alternatively opt to use their 1024m² tier allotment towards a parcel on the Mainland). Other Premium benefits remain unchanged, including the weekly L$300 stipend, Premium virtual gifts, expanded live-chat customer support, exclusive access to Premium areas, priority access to nearly full regions and experiences, and more. Here’s a breakdown of what’s changing: ***This blog post edited @ 4:50 p.m. on May 31 to update the Premium Feature Changes chart and remove references to Basic Group Membership Limit changes. See the blog post Group Limits Update for more details.*** Even more improvements to Premium Membership are coming later this year: more new Linden Home themes and options as well as the introduction of an all-new membership level for those who want to get the absolute most out of their Second Life. Look out for updates to Events and more limit increases as well. While we continue to enhance the quality of Premium Membership, we’ve also made the difficult decision to make our first Premium price increase in over a decade. To see what’s changing, check out the chart below: * Quarterly plans may be renewed, but are no longer available for new Premium Memberships ** Plus VAT in some European Union countries (if applicable) Please note that monthly and quarterly Premium Memberships for Residents who live in some European Union countries may also be charged value-added tax (VAT) in accordance with sales tax regulations. Please visit our VAT Policy page for more details and our Corporate Pricing page for a list of impacted countries. To help with the transition to the new pricing, starting June 3, we’re offering a limited-time opportunity for existing Premium members to lock in their current rates for one more billing cycle, including extending an existing monthly to use the current full year rate by upgrading now to annual. Simply renew before June 24th to extend your current Membership at the same low rate. For example, monthly members will be billed at the lower rate for one more monthly billing cycle, while annual members may renew (or monthly users may upgrade to annual) early to add one more year to your existing Membership at the current lower rate. We will update when the option becomes available on June 3rd. Until then - if you are not up for renewal already, you will not see the option to lock in your current price. Keep an eye out for updates. CREDIT PROCESSING FEE CHANGE Effective June 24, the fee for processing credit transactions (i.e. paying real money into a PayPal or Skrill account) will be 5% per transaction with a minimum fee of US$3 (there is no maximum fee). The fee is currently 2.5% per transaction. This fee change offsets increased regulatory and compliance costs to Linden Lab and is in line with our continued commitment to the long-term successful operation of Second Life. IN CONCLUSION This is a lot of change, and we appreciate that Residents will have questions and thoughts about the impact of these announcements. Please know that we are always aware of the responsibility we have in keeping Second Life a vibrant and successful world, and we do not make these changes lightly. Our goal with today's announced pricing and feature changes is to proactively evolve and strengthen the Second Life economy. We hope that these ongoing efforts to bring a better balance to Second Life will ensure a prosperous future for the entire community for the next 16 years and beyond.

    Don't worry your kids will let you know when it's time --"You've asked three times when does Coll88 start-- on the 8th the EIGHTH" ; "You wore the wrong head with that body two days in a row" ;"You said you were teleporting home and I found you wandering in Bay City".....

    I would like everyone who participated in this discussion to please remember that, Linden Lab did not do this out of obligation. They compromised purely out of good faith. Let's please never abuse this so, when we really need to relay our feedback, the developers hear us with the same clarity and intent as they did today. If our goal is to be genuinely heard, then we need to also genuinely listen when they tell us something was absolutely necessary. We can't be always skeptical and expect to be taken to heart at the same time.

    The doom of SL has been predicted every time they make any change or anything goes wrong since long before my arrival here in 2007 -- yet here we are in 2019. To some, they sky is always falling.

    I also really like the idea, I just wish implementation of it wouldn't be as challenging. As was pointed out, moving the regions would cause huge disruption, not only to those old Linden Homes regions themselves, but we'd also have to make room by relocating regions out of the way where I'd see them going.... and then some (I did look and think about it!). Otherwise, this is why we're doing these sorts of things with the new continent as we continue to plan and build it out.
