Ah - the reason user hours dropped that much last quarter Hamlet, is that I returned back to work full time. Sorry, Second Life.


And the reason of more economic users is that I created a second account (my Third Life) and I spend linden dollars with both of my accounts. :)

am one of the 12,000 (:

i get a premium account and i buy 4,000L so far. so about $90. is not much compare to lots other people. if i am average 12,000 tho then is maybe 1 million dollars more for LL than before

On a side note.
More hope for mesh:)

The only metrics that show the real condition of Secondlife are concurrency and number of private islands on the grid.

Both are weak and the constant loss and churnover of sims shows a deep unhappiness with high tier costs

Secondlife will continue to stagnate until the resident killing high tier costs are reduced

With World getting more and more into a recession, i just wish those numbers will be the same in a year!

Sounds like it's just following the curve of the broader ("real") economy.

No cause for joy or despair here. It's the long term projections that have convinced me that Linden Lab needs to launch a War on Tier.

Like the real world the elite will never do something so obvious because it benefits the lower orders until they are forced to.

Funny, I just recently went premium. (2nd week now) If anyone is like me, my reasons were the not-widely-known change where objects cost less prims if you use LL's newer Land-impact system.. That 512sqm plot and 117 prims (now 117 LI) got far more attractive.

i went to the same school as patrick. i remeber those girls from my school who wrote in. they were white trash...i always felt so bad for them.
