  1. I can understand why – the pricing. Lindens seem to be going out of their way to put themselves out of business. I should know as I am one of the nutters who pays for a private region plus I have to pay VAT on top of that. I am paying nearly double on what it use to cost people to have a private sim a number of years back. If I didn’t share the number would be 18, 987

  2. I suppose other people don’t like to comment on here because they don’t like facts and reality.

    • No, they don’t comment because that is fact and reality. The amount of regions decreasing slowly since 2010. But with 26.000 regions overall, Second Life is still a huge virtual world and a good deal bigger than any other single grid.

      When I came to SL in 2006, there were 5000 regions. Now we have five times more. From my point of view, SL is still a story of success! :)

    • It’s sad to report these numbers but the truth should be published. Bad or good we should still know what is going on.

      Hypergrid Business does a great job at publishing monthly numbers. At the moment it’s on the up!

  3. We will have to wait and see how much the new skill games policy will impact land losses (or gain). So il be looking for the report of the next 3 weeks.

    • Linden Lab has delayed the new skill games policy until 1st September 2014. I guess we will have to wait a while longer. :(

      Well it would be sad too see further land losses and the hope is for a rise in regions again soon.

  4. You keep on living the “dream”, Gordy. At this rate, SL will go back to 2006 in about another year. You can celebrate then.

    • I would expect a noticeable difference (decline/rise) when the new platform launches during the next year or so. We will have to wait and see what happens.

      And you should go back to school and learn mathematics. With the current rate it will take about 35 years to come down to 5000 regions.

      But for me, another 5 years of SL would be enough. Then there will be something newer and better. Perhaps High Fidelity, perhaps Linden Labs next virtual world, or something completely different…

  5. I have been a business man in second life for a good 5 years or so and I’m now noticing a difference in sales and visitors to my shop. Market place us where most my sales take place and it’s killing people exploring sl
    As for the original Philip linden ( Philip rose dale) he is creating a new virtual world and it’s only in alpha stage at the mo!
    With this world eventually being released I can’t see second life competing as the teq being used to link up worlds and the servers that can be used… Sl may become old hat!
