But that excitement quickly disappeared when estate owners got greedy! PLEASE! Not *ALL* estate owners got greedy. Correct your words. Some did, but most of us - including me - passed the bonus on fully. And do you know what, I wear the loss in exchange too - 248 to 260 now - I have not increased my rents to cover that shortfall. Caitlen, hun, some advice for you: If you don't like how your current agent is dealing with you find a new one. There are hundreds of us, really. Some have battery farm estates where they crowd as many people onto a sim as they can, some have themed communities, some have pre-landscaped, some offer the cheapest possible price. If you look around you will find someone who rents something perfect for you. I never said "ALL" estate owners...I said "estate owners" i.e. the owners of the land which I bought the sim from. If the land was only for my personal use, I would have left and found a better company to work with but that always possible for business owners. Matt had just uprooted his successful mall to move to this full sim so moving again would be detrimental to the business.
  2. To clear things up...Matt and I are talking about the same land. I am his girlfriend and live on the same sim as Matt's mall. The issues here is not about my feeling entitled to more prims. Matt and I have a full sim so the increase in prims was only expected when LL increased the prims on the estates..and we did get those prims. The issue here is how the Land Management handled this increase. As Matt explained, we bought the sim and then immediately our tier was raised not once but 2 times. This coincided with the announcement that LL was increasing the prim count on all land. The land was NOT bought with a promotional rate and Matt had several sims from this place before adding this additional sim. In my opinion, this increase in tier was due to greed. I have had a lot of experience owning land from a small 512 sqm lot to setting up a brand new sim for a charity. So I have had enough experience with land in SL to recognize when a land management company gets greedy. In all the times I have owned land, this is the first time I have had my tier increased. Most will agree that renting or buying land from a management company is entering into a contract.I feel this management company breached this contract when they raised the tier twice in a very short period of time. I apologize for not explaining this in my first and original post.
  3. I was so excited about the news that there will be in increase in prims for FREE from Linden Labs! What a great gift LL has given. But that excitement quickly disappeared when estate owners got greedy! Instead of ALL us benefiting from this great gift, those that own the sims thought this was a great way to make more money! Don't be fooled! They may say that the maintenance fees have gone up but that is completely wrong! LL earlier this year actually LOWERED the maintenance fees! When that happened, land owners weren't nice enough to pass that along to all of us who rent or "own" land. Instead they padded their pockets and they are doing it again with the prim increases! LL is trying to make the user experience better for all of us! I applaud them for doing it too! But because of greed, the only ones truly benefiting are the estate companies who are charging us for the new prim counts! Sadly there is no way to boycott these companies because they control the private estates. Some companies are even charging these increases to current land owners, such as RGF, who are not honoring the contract made when the land was purchased! It disgusts me how greed has taken away the enjoyment of SL that LL is trying to spread.
