I would like to offer up this blog post as a clearinghouse for other links to people expressing their concerns about the announcement regarding pricing changes for the OpenSpaces sims. These sims were set up for people wanting to put together multiple sims for sailing or flying, where a lower limit on prims was made and Linden Labs felt the sims wouldn’t require as much server bandwidth. Craps Mariner created a Flickr group to celebrate what will very likely be lost due to the change in policy.
Whenever a group is punished for the misbehavior of the few, you get the kind of reaction going on in the SL blogosphere. Here’s what some have to say, and feel free to add more with your comments:
In a private conversation with long-time resident and top-notch scripter, Alidar Moxie made the following observation: “What should have happened [with OpenSpace sims] was everything from script count to avatar count should be settable on the LL side and they should have tested the crap out of it without us knowing it . . . no one could have abused [it then].”
And there’s a blog dedicated to the issue, Homeless? doing the same as we’re doing here, and probably better. So . . . let’s go to press! (grins)
