i’m fascinated with private sim numbers in SL. okay, not fascinated, but interested in their trending
their decline had been slow and the battle cry from many was that the decline was slow and steady. “plateau” and “flat” were the terms used, but now you can see that it certainly is not flat
one could argue that a loss of 783 sims in relation to 25,000 sims was minor (3%)
looking at the numbers for private sims over the last two years you can see what is happening to the trend
over the last 12 months, the loss has been 2,455 privates sims o_O
three times the loss of the previous year!
in the last two years, SL has lost 13% of its private sims but this accelerated decline is approaching freefall
perhaps once all the ed/non-profit discounts have expired we’ll see this steep decline ease up. but with LL’s new Patterns and Creatorverse under development and the scaling back of JIRA, i doubt the management team at LL has become anymore customer-focused than before . . .
