HI. I debated chiming in here at all. I apologize that you were made to feel unwelcome or unheard inside the citizen's group. We're not all looking at the chat at any given moment. I know the moderators (all volunteer) and myself try to stay on top of things and make sure we answer questions where we can. However, we all have our own Second Lives going on, jobs IRL, families, etc. I know for myself, I stay afk quite a bit as I've got a fairly busy life in general. I agree with the sentiment that I think a weekly update in the Update thread would be nice. I know people join the Bellisseria Citizens group and ask a lot about if regions were released and what homes were released all day everyday. To be honest, we don't know. We're just like you, just instead of on the forums, we're in world. We don't know what is going on, what is being released, any sort of plans. We're just a social group doing our thing.
I see some of you do not care for our flavor of socializing and that is totally okay. We're not going to be everyone's cup of tea. I hope some of you who I see here who have commented about not wanting to be part of the Bellisseria Citizen's group takes the initiative to create your own group for like minded individuals. You shouldn't feel you need to be forced to join a group to socialize in and around Belli. Belli is huge and there is more than enough room for all the groups, even new ones. Also, for clarification, we welcome anyone, you don't need to be a premium member to be part of our group, so please don't feel you can't join in just because you're not a premium member.
Having said that, however, please stop and think about some of the accusations you've put towards the moles and Lindens.They might be employees but they're people first and they don't deserve to be abused or harassed by the rest of us. That's the same ham-handed argument you see in real life with public servants when people start yelling "I pay your paycheck, I'm your boss" just because they (the person upset) pays taxes. The moles and Lindens are people. They respond far better to you treating them as such.
