  1. Hi I'm the original creator of this thread, since beginning it I've had many nice people write me to explain how the process works to get the home I want as I was not clicking in the right way for the homes all this time which would be 8 months. I still do believe it's greedy to go for more than two homes in a release but not much we can do about it. My husband and I still have fun hopping around on his account as we have a victorian now on my account through someone's kindness that is pretty much perfect, so nice after 8 months looking. My intention also for this thread is that the have-nots the people with only one linden home each person could come and express how they felt about the competition and the process. I'm really pretty exhausted reading the posts from people that dress people down about how they should feel about sl and about owning our little dream parcels and questioning people's intelligence , etc..... If you don't like this thread and people talking about how frustrating it might be to land a nice property by water , etc... when you only have one account just don't come in here and read, problem solved. Take care.
  2. Hi Frigga, A public announcement would be great but I think the outcome would not be much different as I've read the megas have more than one computer and browsers going and of course many alter egos. What I meant to comment on is the vitriol description. Mine is frustration plenty more in life to feel and be vitriol about than lack of Linden Homes. And also the ganging up, etc.... and the very clique feel of the other thread , this little non conforming non multiple alt just wanted to be heard lol, the purpose for this thread or at least my purpose. I've enjoyed the discussion myself and am really glad I'm not alone in my feelings or observations. That said I'll probably go looking again on the land page and land the LH home of my dreams, ever hopeful and dreams are free.
  3. Some interesting ideas and comments on this thread. Of course a lot of the multiple buyers have different reasons why they are doing it, I was just wanting a place to vent frustration without some of them telling us to toe the line and zip it . I'm sure there are many nice deserving people that are purchasing hundreds of premium accounts for whatever reason but really in a all fairness they would feel the same way if the tables were turned and they never got much after hours and weeks and months waiting and refreshing and clicking. We put as much time as we can looking which is a lot as we are retired in rl and have the time to do it. They ( the multiples ) often use the argument we worked for it the people who constantly get prime spots . Well we are there scoping, waiting refreshing and many many times there at a release coming up with nothing or if we are lucky something in the back parcels. I've read about how they do it so I know I can't beat this system they use except for luck. So that's all we have as a tool, just luck. That said I wonder how many houses in Bingle will be captured by regular everyday home hoppers like myself looking for our dream home on the sea . I really like the idea about the canals. The stilt houses are something I'm really looking forward to seeing how the water system will work there and how close they will be to the sea and Rez areas. .
  4. I'm not sure what I'm wanting for the thread except for a place for linden home seekers to be heard without the multiple alt people telling us to pipe down. Yes I'm really grateful for the new homes , love them all in their own way. Having a fighting chance to get one is the issue I guess. All the places we've had have been abandons except for one log home we did luck out on with a release, that was when none of the multiples were around. we had it for three months and it was right on the water and not even on the road. But the victorians called back to us. I was so reluctant to let the log homes go for sure , I abandoned it and then took it back straight away lol, but then took the leap and abandoned again . So we are back in the mix. I forgot how frustrating it is. I suppose if it's meant to be maybe we'll get lucky again, since we can't buy our luck.
  5. I think never being able to get a home during a release is about the topic. When did I see a house available? answered it.
  6. Hello I've started this thread out of frustration . I would like a thread for people looking for linden homes that don't have so many multiple accounts, meaning the frustration we go through trying to get a home in the competition of mega home owners that grab up a large portion of the homes when they are released leaving the scraps for us . I hope this topic is allowed as it's a real issue for many of us . We are not trying to shame anyone, but we are in a different group. People who can only afford premium for one avatar. I have premium and my husband has premium so we have two linden homes slots for us , well one we are still looking. I hope it's ok to have another thread as this is a real issue. The thread is just about looking for homes but hopefully with people that aren't grabbing stuff up with multiple alts. Presently we are seeking as many are a Victorian on the sea. right near the water.
  7. I'm going to start an alternative thread. Probably won't make a difference but why is it you guys have all the power.
  8. Sorry I wasn't looking at it that way. I think they quite enjoy what they do. Are you not doing a bit of the same by implying I'm trying to shame them. We all know it's greedy to take so much for yourself and leave others out. I don't see why that's an activity that needs to be protected. My intention was to call out the behaviour but I don't really think they feel shame. Anyhow I changed it. Now you can remove my name as you are trying to shame me I guess. I think they enjoy showing off they have so many avatars or they wouldn't do it. There is such a thing as private message. Also I left this thread from harassment about us putting our photos in the land we captured ( that's me and my husband one linden house each no alts grabbing stuff ) and also making jokes about our Flexi hair, I guess because we aren't one of the cool kids . Not named of course but made it very obvious it was us. There is a real hierarchy here in this thread and more than one of us have seen it. If the people hoarding the houses think we are grateful for them releasing them back to us, think again. Let us capture them once in awhile we can't afford to buy millions of avatars. You take all the fun out of it and you are on a power trip in a lot of people's opinions. But of course they are too afraid to post on here.
  9. We missed it looks like on person or group got at least three of the waterfront properties and another land holding group that's always there on another. So really we weren't in for a show anyhow.
  10. My husband just now released a houseboat in Thresher, still on the land page. * gone in a flash *
  11. We were straight onto it and got an abandon in Juggler. happy days.
  12. This is pretty much what has been our frustration during log home releases besides us so far always seeming to catch abandons. We notice the same things , a lot of alts seeming to be related rezzing all over the place, while we stand in our second hand plot . Kind of makes a person want to give up. They wait and want certain areas and seem to always get them somehow. We are developing an appreciation for offbeat parcels and regions, since this is where we most likely will end up with our second parcel ( just like our first ) when all the log homes are sent out. We too don't mind people having some extra alts we have just ourselves no alt extra premium accounts . I've heard there are some with 20 alts ? don't know if it's true, but still there is not a limit as LL told us when we asked them .But It's kind of like rl when the wealthy buy up all the Seaview plots, etc...
  13. We just must not be jammy then, maybe we'll go rub the tummy of a buddha or something for luck. Thanks for your reply we'll keep trying 🙂
  14. Hi Sylvia, We work at it about 18 hours a day following this thread and then scoping the land and checking out the terrain which we enjoy , we only have 5 tries a day. Sometimes we keep a parcel for awhile to see if we can settle. but yes I still do believe they set up that people who jump a lot get abandons first , I don't think it's personal though. Just somehow preference is given to new people signing up etc... not to capture the abandons. Just our belief because we have tried at new releases for months and never landed anything. That's vics, there have been 2 abandons we got on the water that weren't dream places but on the water that was after 3 months. We do realise that having only 5 tries a day limits us to the people who have 20 - 30 plus tries a day. Hence our frustration. We would have 10 tries but I settled on a Charlie Brown parcel that has the unique feature that rotates to view only the large hill behind it with redwoods there and the road and other houses are very far away , so we created a lovely spot in a sim that has no water , etc... with our own river, but this does take up a lot of prims. We will probably end up doing the same thing with our next plot after we try until the log homes are all gone . In truth though we have no idea how the system for getting LL works , they say it's random. 🙂
  15. I appreciate knowing others are not landing new parcels. If this was true that everyone is only getting abandons each release than nobody here would be offering prime water spots to toss back to people.
  16. We can totally relate to this, we never get a new release unless it's a second rate house that someone else has abandoned and we look around and see everyone landing beautiful parcels. I think they do earmark some people who are jumping to look for the parcel that suits them to get only abandons. Just my opinion and LL is welcome to prove us wrong please. We just landed Moleborough again after an 8 hour wait. The new Buttermore !!
  17. thanks our standards aren't that high we already took one Charlie Brown plot and made it beautiful , we just want water without a road or road traffic in front lol. the people that have so many numerous alts really seem to get the prime stuff on many occasions. we are just two, well one now. but someday it may happen . sorry to sound whinging, one of those days Thanks for the luck. Hope you find your dream plot as well.
  18. Yes we save up, the third try our last for 5 hours we got for the first time water in front at Klokje it has the road in front by the bridge and road on two sides, so not our forever home, we just want to be on the water. It also has all the doors open and windows so most likely an abandon lol. Our only hope for new releases someone else rejects, always. But nice to finally get some water that is a river.
  19. We just did another try and got another abandon, personally I think they somehow won't allow people who house jump a lot ever catch anything new. Really getting fed up.
  20. We tried and caught a property at Glistening Woods that is an exact clone of our log home we already have, what are the chances of that happening , same landscaping same aspect the region is an exact clone of where we are, but no Klokje. We only seem to get abandons during a release so we might not ever get a river spot. sigh
  21. We are just hoping for a place on the river that doesn't have the road in front of it and isn't a pond. I stopped looking because I found a unique cabin that faces the mountain with no road around it. My husband is still looking for our river dream. Meanwhile I built a little mini river on the other parcel. 🙂
  22. Sorry I must be getting you mixed up with Fayed Estate, they are a different person.
