  1. I do believe that it was already answered, explained and people who opened the topic understood how LL works... and the subject kinda moved on. But good reinforcement of information, I can see you really care.
  2. I understand your point of view and agreed that no "compensation" for those that jumped to upgrade cause the new houses needed. But about the benefits, I went to the dashboad upgrading page. Below the upgrading buttoms I saw - Second Lide Premium Benefits - Your Own Private Home - and a link - More Information on Linden Homes. By clicking it opened a page ... .... and I read it all before doing my upgrade. At Linden Homes topics was (and still are) a link "Overview of Linden Homes", and when you click the link... .... the first thing you read is " Linden Homes are ready-to-move-in homes in themed communities that are available only to premium account members. Premium account holders can get a free Linden Home, in addition to the other benefits of premium membership." followed by "Themes: Linden homes come in themed communities, each with choices of individual homes" and followed by the themes. First one is Tradicional homes, and all others below it. I kept reading and there was a step by step to get the home. I am not able to copy and paste here but just scroll and you will see it. It is pretty simple, choose your theme, choose your house under the theme and voilá! I think at this point it should have been changed. It should already mention there about the new linden homes real limitation, making cristal clear that they will realease them in waves, not for everybody right now, etc. The way it is, it just mislead us to buy a pig in a poke.
  3. Yep! I think refund is better than free months. I myself did that and got my refund. I paid annual like I did for several years. Back then the cost of dollar for me was very low so I didnt care to pay just to have a better costumer service via chat or premium sandbox; linden houses were just "beginners homes". And I must say, it was pretty clear what I was paying for. The new benefits that came after like the increase of group spots and easier access to events were tempting but not decisive for me. I like to believe that LL research team saw the lack of appealing to keep premium members/get new ones and boom! new linden homes! So like myself, Im sure many people did the upgrade cause the new linden homes. When I saw they were all sold out and chat operator had no clue when "soon" would be (a week, a month, an year?), meaning no previous schedule planning from LL at all, I preferred my money back. Dollar conversion less than a day after payment plus credit card taxes, I must say I lost about a month membership, but thats ok, no cries about it when you knew it would be that way.
  4. Im not sure what you meaning... you know, english is not my strong suit... so forgive me if I will say something you are already saying.... I think like is not a matter of years of membership. If I read "new lindens homes now available", and do the upgrade, the right thing is the very moment I do it, to be able to get it, the same way that my 42 groups turns imediately into 60. Same to existent premium members. They should be able to go to change the house and voilá! It was sold as a benefit without saying or explaining that I have to do this and that or wait for this or that... It is pretty clear at the list of benefits at the membership page about the 300L weekly about the 1k bonus, it should be there all about the new, but limited, linden homes. Thats my role point. Thats my point of view....
  5. Indeed all the way! And if you read all I wrote before Im pretty sure you will understand my answer!
  6. Anyone whom?! Are you a Linden? Let's talk! Opened and sold out! More to come, when? You are def a Linden! Let's talk!
  7. Like I said, LL deals with all time zones, therefore all dolar prices, so I dont think they will care about that... For us brazillians is really harder to pay for a dollar membership than americans, easier than paraguayans, but a closest lisbon friend of mine, meaning "euros" lol, share the same vision of what we pay for and what is really delivered (and how).
  8. Hello all! I am new to the forums, not used to follow it but now I am since the first wave of bellisseria houses. I came here looking for some information and hoping for some answers about the LL new homes. So I kept reading and reading, trying to avoid writting.... cause my english is def not good enough to explain myself but no double, the new LL houses is a very big currently issue, dividing opinions, visions and above of all, feelings. I read soooo many times about "patience". About "we are all equals" to LL. That we all have the same treatment, so no special treatment for no one. I read about the need to be well informed, following the forums, the posts, the need of being fast, I read about the "first served" theory. So what is left to me to say?! Just about me. I cannot say what is like for you guys, just know about myself and how I myself see all that issue. When I read "be patience", "keep hitting refresh buttom" or "I am premium since day 1 and didnt get my home too", all I see are people trying to give some comforting, what is awesome, but also a bit of condescending with LL. Cause I want to believe that someone of LL team reads the forums. I would say that reading the forums and blogs and flickr and facebook and all social media with SL community should be a LL job..... not mine.... We cannot forget that LL is a business, is a company all premiums members pays for. I as a member (not premium anymore btw) didnt signed up to follow posts; when I made my account, was no writting, big letters or little bottom letters that I had to follow nothing to have the premium things. When LL gives xmas gifts or whatever, they send emails. At login screen, not dashboard, the login screen is plenty of informations. So why they did not broadcast it sending emails or setting that information on login screen?! I'm afraid the answering is quite simple... cause there was no enough houses for everyone! So... why release them? To please just the (no offense) refresh buttom hitters?! Isnt it selective in a sort of way?! LL is global, so as a global company dealing with all time zones, and willing to be fair with all members, why not wait to release them all only when they have at least the same number of houses of the existing premium members?! I read someone that wrote "why waiting?" To be fair with all who pays the same you do, maybes?! Cause as a matter of feelings, it socks to see people blogging their awesome new LL houses decorations when you that pays the same have to wait for God knows when... When you have the time to stop your rl life to be 24 available to hit a buttom? Is it fair?! I knew about the new LL houses cause I saw a photo at flickr. I went inworld to see the Apple Fall showroom LL house, run to my dashboard and saw at news "new lindens homes" and was like omagah! Imediatelly did my premium account again but... "where's the Bellissseria?, I only see the same old ones"! Thats why I started digging about and ended up reading here "they were gone in 2 days"! So why they didnt write that on the dashboard? "New houses sold out!" I would wait for more. But no. So no, I dont want to be"patience" or "keep hitting the refresh buttom". If they are selling something, they must deliver it as sold. Simple as that. It was no written that I had to blood sweat and tears (love the band lol) to get the new house. For those who did, congratulations but you shouldnt had to, it is not right for no one. That first served theory is a good theory for several situations but it doesn not applies here. Specially when not clear at the sign up. I saw comparisons with Iphone releases. Well, new iphones, you pay for it! Every single new iphone, if you want one, you sleep at the line to get yours but you pay for it. Not the same here. It is a service what you pay for here and that service you pay for comes with the described benefits, period. Is more like you sign Netflix to see GOT as advertised and when the episode world wide begin, you end up with a black screem cause there are too many people in the world to see it all at once! lol Thats why I do think they should had wait until theres room for everybody. Now that ship is sailing and frankly I dont see much more to do unless crying and complaining, the houseboat last released was full of the same mistakes that the first houses wave. And no, that LL talking "we didnt see it coming", I dont buy it.... We all know that housing is a trend in SL nowadays. For years we lived happily at sandboxes, plataforms, we just didnt care. Times now are very different. The number of themed residentials lands, carefully landscaped and decorated just grow and grow. So no, I dont buy that. So sorry for complain like many did here, but I had to put it out of my chest... I did cancelled my premium account, got a refund and am waiting hoping something changes that really benefits us all! Thank you all for reading all this.
