I personaly think this is awful, really really awful. I don't care how much better the avatars will be looking and all the new features on the new second life, the fact how much lindens people have spendt on this game is shocking at least now that we know that there's a new platform being made and that we get nothing for it after using all these in rl money on this old one, no refund and nothing at all. Creators will have to start from scratch uploading everything on new and so on, and some might keep being in the old one, there is no bright future for both the new or the old secondlife as far as i see, these years of updates havent really changed much in sl well the shadows,the mesh and so on was big changes, as i've heard the old secondlife is hard to "update" to a better one, but far as ive seen they havent done **bleep** to sl, havent helped residents that needed help, simply didnt care about anything and letting creators make sl for them, and now their making this new crap that will probly ruin everything and throw all the work that creators have done for it, im not planning to use plenty of money AGAIN to get a decent avi and get back what i had, god knows how much i spendt on this game and how much i earned via my shop that will go to an end be couse the creator making the 2.0 avatar, anime avatars will maybe not go over to the new one, i don't know but i'm pretty much sure that this is just going to hell. I know the old sl wont go away just like that but sooner or later it will, i like sl as it is, how much more realism do we need on this game? till we forget that it is a game? These ugly linden avatars makes creators work harder and experiment more to make a better secondlife, why ruining it?
It's fun to hear that linden labs are actually working on a new platform, but it would of been better if we got a refund on how much we had spendt on second life, yes we get a well good amount from it but we will still use money on it after we had spendt what we used in the old second life, the reason i want a refund onto the new one is because i want to have the avatar i have now and worked hard on on the new one, not to buy new **bleep** but just get what i had into the new one, i could of used my money on something better if i knew about this before, a big vacation! But i love secondlife it was my life the period i got bullied and i didnt have a "life" in rl, now that its working better for me im happy how much secondlife have learned me, and now seeing how much ive wasted is making me sad and mad, i got a shop i got friends and i got a decent good inventory, but if i had to get new sl i would lose some of my friends, i would of wasten in rl money on something going down after a while, i lose my shop and i lose in rl money that i have to use on the new one to get what i had or maybe i never will because some of the creators wont use the new sl at all, it would be great if the lindens,lands and so on was cheaper on the new one, the prices on lands on he old one makes me cry, more ppl would use money then and the new sl would be HUGE with plenty of different lands to choose from, but for now i will use the old one till there is something big about the new one that makes me change my mind, but for now it havent amused me at all. I would rather see linden labs fix the old one than making a new platform, get some skilled scripters and so on and fire the old ones and get it fixed damnit lol, never give up the impossible.
Thank you anyways.
