  1. I'd just like to take a second to complain about Second Life's search engine. In a word it, sucks. It is the main conduit for entering locations and connecting with people outside of your personal networks. And in every aspect, it has design flaws. People flood their sim descriptions with tags to get picked up by it and so can't give a proper synopsis about what they are about. The search engine gives equal priority to any words in that description. Modern search engines have evolved far beyond this kind of searching and are intuitive. There is no personalization or thought in the advertisements as a result, just people scrambling to get caught by the engine. Each sim puts down the same 20 tags, and the engine croaks as a result because it sees the same thing over and over. It does spit out information, but its illogical, messy, and misses a lot which leaves the user to scroll through it endlessly to hopefully find that needle in the haystack it has provided. Its nice that we got a new environmental system to play with, but people make the place. An influx of people coming and going is needed to keep any place alive and without a way for them to get there... It all dies. It doesn't matter what toys you put out if the people aren't there to appreciate them. Second life has got to make more bridges between communities to keep itself alive, and the search engine is the biggest bridge of all. Creating more land does make more money, but people with money to buy it are typically smart with how they use it. No people, means no place, means no reason to keep investing in that land. Money is made off of keeping people in secondlife since the money they spend initially is likely offset by the advertisement costs that it took to get them there. People still play board games, they still use text based games, and mmo's have been riddled with microtransactions and self destructive power dynamics aimed to lure in whales that will destroy them. Second life still has its place in the world as a massive online community, there is still nothing that competes with it. 😎 So basically, fix the dumb search engine please. 😎 ❤️ What? It's my annoyed kitty face! ❤️
