That picture is evil and stays sideways when I turn my iPhone to read it.

Tempura is a lovely sim. Nice to see it rated highly. I should visit again just to keep it ahead of more salacious spots :)

Tempura is a lovely place, but it's been a lagfest from day one (many many textures there; gorgeous ones, too). Unfortunately it's so popular now you can barely move most of the time because there are too many avatars there. Luckily I discovered it early on and got some nice photos. http://bit.ly/eqLgfJ

About Cidade do Medo (use Google Translate if Protuguese is not your strong suit) from 2008:
It's an RPG apparently, in case you wondered, a "world of monsters, angels, negromancers(?) etcetera. Here mine and Google's skills screech to a halt).

It is with some embarrassment that I note that the comment I originally intended to add here ended up instead in the December story about the most popular sims . . . *blush*

Darn you and your confusing links, Hamlet!!!

Anyway, here it is again:

How many of these are RedZone sims, one wonders? I know of at least one that definitely is, and another that I am pretty certain also uses the system. All of that juicy datascraping swelling the size and value of the RedZone database!

One wonders how many of these would *remain* in the top 20 if it became widely known that their visitors were being scanned and harvested into a large off-world database outside of the jurisdiction of the LL ToS?

Ah - thanks for the heads up on the Portugese speaking sim! We get so many visitors who speak Portugese I love to find LMs I can pass out :)


No military sims made it in the 20? :(

Sometimes it seems like SL is turning into Orkut!

SL can not draw a completely round naked human bottom. When your potential new users are judging SL by AVATAR movie standards, where do u think you will rank? The bottom and not the squared off bottoms in SL, either.

SL-- Make people your highest goal and see you beat even Facebook. As it is now, forget it... only sex addicts in SL now.

bye bye SL
