  1. July’s Marketplace Fixes

    We're on it. Fixing the fix!
  2. Buying Land Without a Premium Membership

    I hope this Knowledge Base article is less confusing than the discussion: https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/buying-land-r14/ In short: you can buy land without a premium membership - that's called Private Regions: https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/buying-land-r14/#Section__2_2 All land incurs a monthly maintenance fee. The only exception is the 1024sqm allowance (Mainland only) that is included with a Premium Membership. When you buy a parcel from another resident, you pay them for the parcel. You then pay Linden a monthly fee (unless your parcel(s) total area is 1024sqm of Mainland or less). Linden Homes are one way to use part of your 1024 allowance, and those leave you with another 512 to use elsewhere as you wish.
  3. False Advertising on July Price Drops?

    That's frustrating, and I'm sorry to hear it. You've got to work with support to get it resolved - I hope things clear up fast!
  4. Private Estate Prices drop, but the Land Store is having issues

    Better now! You should be able to purchase regions through the land store with new pricing reflected.
  5. This is not the rollout we were looking for... While Private Estate prices really did drop effective today, we've had some frustrations with the land.secondlife.com pages not updating correctly. Please double check the total before paying, and create a ticket with support if you are having issues - they will take care of you and make sure that you get the newly discounted prices for your purchase. We thought it would only be fair to hold off on the L$ buy fee increase until we get this resolved.
  6. False Advertising on July Price Drops?

    Hi! We're having some technical issues with the land store. We're working to address them - in the meantime, please file a ticket and support will take care of you! Very sorry for the trouble.
  7. While we cannot say with certainty which direction we will chose, we have no plans to abandon MacOS Viewers. That said, it's a good idea to not upgrade to the Mojave beta just yet, considering BUG-216393.
  8. All the Governors Horses and all the Lindens

    While I'd like to claim that I'm an engineer, because that would certainly garner more trust... I really am not. This is gonna be great fodder for this year's Meet the Lindens!
  9. Thoughts on the Town Hall meeting?

    Ok, yeah, sometimes we're lurking! While we do try to keep an eye on the forums now and again, none of us can keep up with all the things, so remember that the best way to reach us is still to say it with Jira! https://jira.secondlife.com/secure/CreateIssue!default.jspa
  10. A Conversation with Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg

    Why yes! The Land team has been selling previously abandoned land left and right, staying late and working overtime. We've seen a fantastic response from the community since the Mainland price reduction was first announced (we called it project Tiericide internally ;), and the requirements for getting a parcel of "abandoned" land have been relaxed. If you find a parcel you like, file a support ticket with details (and a screenshot of the map might help if it's an oddly shaped one) - and you might find it set for sale to you in just a day or two .

    There's no such work currently planned, but this would make a _great_ feature request. Stranger things have happened

    We do not currently have plans to work on temp upload capabilities. While we understand that using the beta grid may not be ideal in all cases, the complexities of demands of a temp upload project make it unlikely to win over other important undertakings already on the roadmap.

    Updating the system avatar is on the roadmap. It's competing for resources with several other avatar projects, so there's no active development on it right now.
  14. A Conversation with Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg

    You bet! Kudos to Brett for putting this together on the weekend. We're quite committed to lowering land prices across the board. Carefully To be fair - we did run the buy-down program a couple of years ago, and that was quite popular. Stay tuned for more changes. We do not expect to introduce even more land products though - the current scheme is confusing enough! All of them, hopefully! A better SL experience is a healthier market for all. The best way to support SL is with a premium membership and, of course, land! It seems you're asking whether it's possible to buy shares - but we are not a publicly traded company. Nothing useful to say here right now, but we're looking into it.
