According to the latest blog post on Hypergrid Business it appears that ReactionGrid is moving away from Opensim and closing down the grid within the next 24/48 hours or so. ReactionGrid has 81 regions with 105 active users (active within the past month) with 11, 555 total registered users apparently via July 2012 Opensim Grid Statistics. It’s sad news that ReactionGrid will be closing down it’s public opensim grid this week and i’m sure it will be missed by it’s userbase.
In the comments section Maria Korolov posted this…
A ReactionGrid customer just forwarded me an email from the company, which provides a bit more information.
“By the end of the month of July, we will be closing ReactionGrid’s public OpenSimulator grid.
“We understand some of you may have islands with us that have been paid through to a certain date and we will work with you to prorate any time left on that pre-paid contract.
“To help you migrate all your content, we can provide you with a final OAR file for every region you maintain on our public OpenSimulator grid before we close your regions.”
The ReactionGrid website has been inactive for many months.
I signed up to ReactionGrid on 19th December 2010 and attended a christmas party back then. I logged at various times to explore ReactionGrid and attend Pathfinder Lester office hours on ReactionGrid which were always interesting.

Visit this cool looking London 2012 Olympic Stadium in Second Life with the Olympic flame and freebies. I went to visit the stadium in Second Life and I was very impressed with the build. I picked up a free Olympic torch and walked around the stadium for a while. If you compare this cool looking virtual London 2012 Olympic Stadium with the real life one it looks really similar.
Check out my SL snapshots below showing various areas.
Wow, great job! 😀
