Always nice to know what folks tier is funding.

Big fan of Minecraft. Spore was also very intriguing to me. The Creature Creator was so fun. Love the interface.

Arcadia Codesmith

Cool. I hope they knock it out of the park.

I've been finding more enjoyment from playing Minecraft with a bunch of mods than I have in Secondlife lately. SL has just been too laggy and unstable to be fun these last few months.

I noticed today that I log in maybe every other day now and when I am on, I'm just standing somewhere empty. I'm still paying for my sim and tier (I do have both), but if they keep up their habit of not improving things, or keep making it worse, I'm eventually going to become more disinterested and want to stop owning land altogether to save money like many others users have been doing since the great decline began.

LL needs to stop pussyfooting around the issues and start breaking things if they want to seriously fix the major issues with the platform.

In theory, SL is that it should be a great place. In practice, SL is spaghetti mess of technical and policy issues.


I hear you Kadah. My worry is that they will neglect improvement of SL if they make a hit with "Patterns."
