  1. …an ugly lineup of pimps, scavengers, wannabe pedophiles and other odious people waiting to pounce on newbies. I wasted no time in hitting the reverse teleport arrow overhead to get the heck out of Dodge. But … OMG … I was stuck in TP lag while the despicable, nefarious crowd descended on me. What to do now?
  2. Please check me on this, Jack. If I understand correctly, you are speaking of how large a fresh new prim can be made … 64m where we have been limited to 10m. I don't think you mean the existing megaprims will disappear. A great deal of the in-world construction over the years has been made with megaprims and those works would be ruined by enforcing an upper limit of 64m on all prims. :-( Could you confirm this?
  3. @Lorraine - think Thelma & Louise and drive off that cliff! It'll make a bigger statement.
  4. Kate said, "Non-profits provide most of the help to newbies and they host most of the conferences, discussions, public affairs panels, that interest core users. What would "events" look like without non-profits and educators? Who will teach building classes? Who will host the freebie walls? Who will create all the discussion sites and write the articles about SL that attract interested people to SL... the effects are enormous." @Kate - I imagine this news means non-profits like NMC and NCI and FLWM and others among the non-profits doing a lot of the good basic training camps will see land fees go up. Losing many of the non-profits will be as much of a blow as losing many of the universities. @Marielle - Yes, the community gateways went away and they killed the mentors, too. Considering all this news, taken as a whole, SL isn't what it used to be. It's hard to fathom what it will look like a year from now.
  5. So LL is doing away with the education discount entirely. That's truly unfortunate as it will make it even harder for colleges and universities to find the necessary funds. This comes at a time when LL is going to make it possible for high schools to get started in-world with the lower age limit at 15. I wonder if the prospect of a large number of high schools coming into SL has made LL greedy? The downside for SL is educators have been leading the way by showing SL to students, parents and others and giving it an image of acceptability in an era when people fear the Internet. With fewer educators, who will help spread the word? It's wrong to shoot down the educators who have built LL up. And here's something else. I wonder if the news that the U.S. Congress is talking about legalizing Internet gambling has dollar signs dancing in LL heads over the huge parcels they can sell to those casino operators LL threw out a couple of years ago?
