losing 8 private sims per day holding steady


Second Life has been losing around 8 private sims per day as its daily average for 2012

between January 1st and December 23 SL has lost 2,863 private sims

if this rate continues, then there will be around 18,000 private sims this time next year or close to 6,000 private sims lost in two years

what does this mean for Linden Lab?

that’s pure speculation and i would think it depends, in large part, to their success with Creatorverse and Patterns

it’s fitting that they changed the HTML title of the Linden Lab page to Makers of Shared Creative Spaces, that reflects their portfolio nicely

  1. Changing a name wont change the writing on the wall.

  2. i think you are correct – and it does not seem that LL is even trying to scrub that writing off!

    i am too removed from SL nowadays but trust your perspective is 100% correct

    a very Merry Christmas to you Gaga! =)

  3. Could be nothing more than just a planned LL server downsizing, the age of servers (when they increased capacity), and cost of electricity (if the servers not needed to support the traffic). Or just a way to make their grid more active (less space with the same number of users).

  4. Hope you still hold the Traditional of Réveillon and if you do, may you & yours have a glorious one.

    Happy HoHoHo Season to one & all.

  5. yum tourtiere! my grandmother made the best and it is something i still love having. we do a long and late running dinner – tonight we will start with brie and pate and other cheeses with cocktails and then move into wine and olives and cornichons and then a bone-in prim rib (Newported where you cut off the bones and then use them as a cooking rack). we talk a lot so dinner drags out and then we’ll have some wine and then dessert with cordials

    not an all night dealio like a true reveillon but pretty lavish as far as food goes (the aged rib eye roast was a small fortune). last year we had foie gras too but opted to be a bit more politically correct this year

    when i was a kid we did do some dinners with oysters and coquilles st. jacques

    now you have me in the mood to make a tortiere! maybe for New Years’s Eve!

    Merry Christmas WhiteStar and thank you for all your encouragement and help =)
