  1. So we have till June 24th to lock in the correct premium fee. However {coming is)" the introduction of an all-new membership level for those who want to get the absolute most out of their Second Life". This gives the risk of locking in the premium fee and next comes another option and we have to pay again?
  2. The Bay City Post is out! Read all about it! https://baycitypostsl.blogspot.com/search/label/190602
  3. I just calculated that if I were to employ 4 alts I'd save 30us$ a year in the current scheme. With the new scheme I'd loose a whopping 76 us$ with 4 alts. That could be a reasonable justification for the massive unreasonable price increase. I should have made that calculation sooner. Now my alts will remain poor. I'm not gonna premium up 4 alts for the duration of a year.
  4. Once a blog pot has been done you are not looking for comments for change. The policy has been set and carved into stone. The blog post presented the change as something good, it is not. There were better moments to announce this and better ways to present it, instead you have chosen to post the 37.5% price-increase just before SL16B. I have seen Lindens make similar blog posts. Jack and Blue, as their farewell. I have a double strange feeling.
  5. I am preparing a blog post. This is what I have written so far. Our landlord has giveth +512sqm and Bellisseria. Our landlord will taketh a price increase of 26% ... 37.5% for Premium membership. Also, if you are fortunate enough to make money in SL, the cost of converting L$ to US$ will increase 100% (from 2,5% to 5%, no caps). Basic membership will have less groups and less off-line IM's. A full sim will see a price reduction of 8%. Ideas on how to improve the text?
  6. There appears to be something brewing at the Bay City Post. What could this mean? http://baycitypostsl.blogspot.com/
  7. There is always a good moment to unsubscribe from a thread.
  8. Dear Ebbe. First off, thank you for your efforts to update Second Life and the Linden Lab services. Also I am very pleased with the wind of openness that comes from the Lab. In this time of privacy abuse it needs to be asked. What is Linden Lab it's position towards privacy and, more specific, the European laws that reign privacy? Linden Lab uses various web based providers, the forums, wiki, jira, Amazon to name a few. Do the providers follow the same rules and standards? Why are visitors to those websites being tracked by Google and other snoopers? Does Google know my Username + RL name + my SL marketplace purchases? Why? And what can it do with that? I am using Second Life as being a paid provider so I can expect an experience without (much) advertising and tracking. Are our in-world interactions stored? If so, what duration? Who has access to my data? Does that include government agencies? What is the USB key policy on leaching data? Thank you for replying, -Vick
  9. oh, if it was 512.... I know someone that wants a plot in BC.... *doggy eyes*
  10. ETA. If I manually enter 4608 in the calculation box it shows I can buy 512. No idea what would happen in-world.
  11. The Land Use page shows the 1024 bonus. But it doesn't show (yet) I can buy another 512. I still have 0 Available Square Meters. Except that, this is great news! 1024 bonus *and* a price reduction!!!! Yay!!
  12. I can build. Sim holds now well above 18800 prims. The broken Mesh object now has normal physics. Now I still have to wait an hour since it went wrong yesterday one hour after a sim restart.
