Should second life have a secondary currency that can not be bought or sold for real USD? Lets call them GEMS with L$ as the premium currency. GEMS are in addition to the existing L$ economy. There should be no way to directly purchase GEMS from LL. X's are use to give an indication of scale, not to denote specific amounts. X Individual, XX tens of, XXX hundreds of .. etc Linden based sources (Getting GEMS) The number of GEMS issued doesn't need to be large. All residents are given XX GEMS a week providing they meet minimum activity requirements. Log in X hours, move about, communicate etc. (Bots get nothing). Premium members get XXX GEMS a week Existing Linden mini games (Horizons etc) Positive participation in the community (Forum posts that gain reputation) Completion of basic platform educationalo achievements. XX for creating your first prim. XX for adding your first profile picture Use of testing viewers on the beta grid. Almost anything really. Linden sinks (Spending GEMS) The cost of Linden rewards/items/etc in GEMS can be quite high as they have zero value outside of SL. Their real value is the inter-resident participation, engagement and platform use they bring. 1% reduction on a months Teir payment for every XXX GEMS returned to LL Promoted positioning for a location in search, marketplace or classified listing. (XXX) Texture or mesh uploads Special rewards or limited access to premium perks Resident to resident sinks A little reward can go a long way. Residents can exchange GEMS between each other in the same was as L$, this includes offering scripted interfaces, vendors, selling time and services, everything they do with L$ now. Rewarding visitors to your parcel or event, or for playing your game. For joining your group. For placing your location in their picks. Business that need a resident source of GEMS to fund rewards can sell some items they currently charge L$ for or would give away. Sell regular content for XXXXX GEMS First one to XXXXXXX GEMS Gaming with GEMS .. probably isn't covered under gambling rules. The benefit to residents depends a lot on their time spent in SL. New users can use them as a way to get started, participate in SL and getting exposure to exchanging a currency for content and participation. Established L$ using residents can burn them reducing teir, getting a few free textures a week or promoting their interests. There will be a desire to spend them, which invariably will involve doing something.
So my friend said he put in an order for $1,000,000L to /$1.00 Usd....he said it would take 14 days to fulfill....I am skeptical about this, I was wondering how far have you stretched the lindex? What is the biggest Linden / usd difference you have used and actually gotten money from it? How does it work? Will said friend actually get paid out or will he simply be waiting for forever?
I submitted a ticket inquiring about what I may be able to do in order to avoid penalty incase this suspicious amount of L$ is hacked, as I was always told that if it seems too good to be true it likely is. I'm curious as to any steps I may be able to take to ensure this does not negatively effect my future experience on second life, and no I'm not going to "send it to x user for verification" if anybody is going to try that crud. I simply wish to discuss, in case I am in any danger of action taken against my account. It is not like I am able to deny lindens being given to me, after all.
