  1. If your database and backend can't handle a semicolon in a data field, there's already something wrong. lol
  2. Exact same design but Modern Flat and in generic Modern UI ""dark"" Blue #1 instead of trademarked Linden Green. Ok then. I do appreciate, that other than the color, its pretty much the same general logo as the original classic logo (not whatever that weird 2010's App Store stylized encircled thing was). Given the trend of corporate logo redesigns when moving to the offensively-inaccessibility of modern UI designs, I was fully expecting the new SL logo to be completely different by being a generic, meaningless, and "inoffensive", arrangement of basic shapes in two colors, where one of those colors is transparent the other is so neutral that it compatible (ie. barely works) on either dark theme light dark-gray or light theme dark light-gray backgrounds. Nothing like ruining your brand recognition by making your long standing logo something existing customers can't identify and new or non-customers still can't care about. lol I'm mostly relieved they settled on "fine, lets just make it blue then."
  3. Hmmm, likely safe to bet about 2-15% of that 90k are still active accounts. If I assume 20% active, that's max <3% affected. That's slightly higher than I would have guessed.
  4. If its increased script mem limits or adding something useful to experiences, I'm on board for that.
  5. The downside to that would be not getting the first year for $27 less per account.
  6. LL is also based in California. You can assume everything in this state costs between 30-200000% more than it would in any other place, outside of Manhattan and Hawaii. Projects to fix the various problems with groups have been going longer than Grumpity has been a Linden. I think we're past the point where we just make a new group system from scratch and migrate over.
  7. If you would otherwise buy the >$60 worth of L$ per year, then it starts being cheaper to have more than one premium account. The way the land tier prices scale as they increase makes it hard to beat just going up a tier verse getting another premium sub with an additional lower tier level. When the L$ stipend factors in, and only when you would buy L$ regardless, then the numbers shift towards something more complex.
  8. How is that even possible? I thought region ownership also required premium. Offline group notices fail 50-95% of the time going back at least over 2.5 years. The causes for these issues and others with groups is often very hard to determine and solutions may not even be possible without complete replacements. Any project to fix the group problems is going to be a very long undertaking and massive scope. Mainland or private region? The previous discounts were only for mainland.
  9. Let me buy-down and I will use the unpoisoned and not-on-fire pitchfork instead. :V Should have lead with that in the original post. I know what I say has little weight with other residents, but I will still add that the group backend is really taxed. Many-to-many instant message chat on the scale SL does is not an easy feat, and it's only something recent new chat platforms have managed to overcome with the power of massive distributed computing. (On that note, SL should add Discord support :V) Maybe the new Basic group limit should have applied to new residents. Or maybe at least promise that when the group backend gets its long past-due overhaul, Basic will get its 42 back.
  10. The transition fee increase should have been a separate thing done at least 6 months away from the other changes. These type of fee increases within the industry have been happening for years due to the added regulations. I'm surprised LL didn't do them earlier, but I''m guessing they waited to do one single increase rather than several smaller ones. Had they done it separately, they could have passed the blame off on regulatory compliance and increased payment processor costs. By combining it with the premium increase with its tiny crab apple treat than only a few of us horses will even get, plus also saying the ponies will get fewer carrots, it was more of an insult to all. Sorry for the equine analogies. I'm tired and was saw a lot of horses at the park this evening after work. x3
  11. You're right. I thought my sheet had accounted for L$ but it didn't. I had forgotten I had left that out as I haven't bought L$ in many years due to the small amount of rent income I get doing that for me. I updated my workbook to account for the stipend and the new and old premium pricing. I converted the stipend to an even $60/yr value as that is about where L$15600 (300/7*365) comes to without fees. Above assumes you would otherwise buy the L$. This one does not and would be annual price paid.
  12. Totally. Any premium user who owns less than a full private region is getting screwed by this. The only defend-able point about the premium increase is its the first one in a very long time and less than inflation. Combined with the changes to Basic and the translation fee changes, this whole thing is coming off as more of an insult to residents. I'm in the small class of residents that will get any benefit from this and its a >7% savings. Its a nice gesture, but not really going to change much. I guess I can treat myself to Wendy's twice a month now.
  13. This only correct for grandfathered pricing or buy-down regions. Most (like me) will be $249 down to $229. If you own one region and renew premium annually, you only save $17.75/m. Coming from $255/m, that's not really much savings.
  14. Was that the old larger stipends or the 300L one? I did all my calculations last year with the 300L since that it what I am able to get.
