500 follows milestone reached

Today my blog reached the 500 Follows milestone and I like to say thanks so much for following my blog over the years. Thanks for your support and it would be fantastic to reach the 1, 000 Follows milestone within the next few years.

Yay, 500 follows! 

Yay 500 Follows!
  • 100 Follows – 19th May 2012
  • 200 Follows – 30th April 2013
  • 500 Follows – 17th March 2015

Recently my blog reached the 400, 000 blog views milestone and that’s incredible I think. It would be great to reach the 500, 000 blog views milestone within the next year or two.

If you are a WordPress user then you can check out your Trophy Case to see what you have including follows, likes and anniversary’s.  Woooot! 😀

I’ll keep everyone posted if I reach any other milestones in the near future for sure. 😀


Latest grid stats for Second Life & OpenSim – March 2015

Here are the latest grid stats for both Second Life and OpenSim and are correct as of 16th March 2015. Please note that these stats below come via SLUniverse Forums and Hypergrid Business for reference. Every three months I will share the very latest grid stats for Second Life and OpenSim during 2015 to see what’s going on.

Second Life Grid Stats Update

Tyche Shepherd posted a new report on Monday 16th March 2015 (page 92) on the SLUniverse Forums for the total number of Main Grid regions and private estates.

  • Total Number of Main Grid Regions: 25, 549 
  • Private Estates: 18, 535 
  • Linden Owned: 7, 014

Tyche Shepherd mentions on page 92 that the total private estates loses for the first 11 weeks of 2015 comes to a net loss of 65 regions which is 0.3% down on the end of last year.

OpenSim Grid Stats Update

Maria Korolov posted a new report on Hypergrid Business on Monday 16th March 2015 announcing that OpenSim has passed the 30, 000 active users milestone which is incredible I think. OpenSim is still ahead in the total amount of regions while Second Life is slowly declining once again. When SL 2.0 launches it will be interesting to see what happens in terms of the numbers but it’s early to tell at the moment.

  • Land area of OpenSim Public worlds: 57, 941 standard region equivalents (3, 797 square kilometers)
  • 94% of all OpenSim regions (57, 941) are on the hypergrid-enabled grids with 4, 079 of them being on closed grids
  • The number of registered users now stands at 433, 179
