  1. Well, yes. But actually no! The extra effort due to lack of coding skill from the original dev team should not factor against customers.
  2. Thank you for all your replies, you all are the best 😃 Lemme try to answer some: I think you're right. My heart rests at easy now. No, really. Don't want, son't pay for it, but I was so disappointed I had to rant a little. I took it personal. It wasn't. Yeap, but as someone else said probably it's to promote a month of premium. Maybe they'll open up in the future. I meant it's the only thing I happen to use. But yeah, the respect part is because I believed the token price speech and the "let's build together" and all that. (more bellow) (about cashgrab) Because 40 USD doesn't feel like a random number. It's a well estabilished entry-price, aiming people who already spent a lot more on a char (which raises the added value of a desired name change). It's not aimed at selling people what they want, It's mark-up focused. Yes it's a valid business practice. Yes we all do it. Doesn't change the fact that it's a mark-up. Such a forum savy (/me hugs). 😃 The disrespect was bull*****ing about token price, not about charging. But I guess writerly text, as Roland Barthes would put it, happens. Cheers Love y'all
  3. Yeah, literally not what I said. I just don't see why the need to say "token price so people won't change name so often" and the likes of it. Just say it like it is and that's okay. But disapointed, for sure.
  4. So, I've heard on that live streaming that the name change would come with a small fee to prevent too many changes and all that. Maybe to cover upkeep cost on all those changes needed for it. But to change a line of text for the price of a full Triple A game... This makes me sad. SL has always been about community, and although I know I'm far from being a huge spender here, I had my fare share of moneys going to support designers and artists and even got premium to support Linden Labs itself (really, the only good perk is cutting the line to get into Uber, Acess, Cosmo, etc). It's not a token price. It's not something to mitigate costs. It's a cash grab, in my humble opinion, over a community that would probably have too much invested by this point. I may be wrong, but at least for me this is a turning point regarding my SL spendings. Maybe it's about respect. Maybe I'm just butthurt because right now eveyone inworld is making freebies to keep people at home and this comes at a bad timing. I dunno. What I do know is that this puts a hard stop on all my SL spendings. I'll still be a part of this community, and I even think I have another year or so of premium already paid upfront, so this is not a "oh, why I left SL post" nor any sort of babling like that. I'm just concerned that how I feel right now may be how many of us feel. A bit disrespected, that's all.
