Fabulous! With the world growing by leaps and bounds, it's really hard to keep up with what's out there, and Popular Places was anything but helpful!


Fantastic! I'm pretty tired of seeing that stupid Hippie Camping and Welfare Island showing up in that currently useless tab. I think this is one of the best moves they could make recently.

Approved by LL eh? guess we better make our sims into watermelon wonderlands if we want to be seen rofl.

j/k... we luvs ya torely

i think its safe to say the pattern of the fashion page favoritism will continue and just spread to other areas. LL should consider outsourcing this. Sadly in a bad economy a lot of people seem to be willing to take bribes so I guess money will ultimately decide who "gets on the A list" ... just like the real world.

I think this is a good idea. I am sure a user rating system embedded in the client could do a better job rather than having Lindens do it on our behalf. In any case, they will have to automate...the rating and have some kind of 'digg' like algo that obviously will need to be tweaked from time to time. Babbage Linden might have had something like that in the past in SL.

Right Move, Cheers!

Good move. It remains to be seen if nay-sayers like Ann Otoole will be proven right. Any automated system, Moriz, is open to trickery like we've seen with the Popular Places. Automated systems don't think and have loopholes.

By the way, is it just me or does the new Search - All sport a sex ad on the first page, even when unchecking Include Mature? That 'problem' has been around longer, which is odd for a company which bans people for saying the F-word in a mature sim to noone in particular.
