Islandz is the official name for new grid opening soon


Islandz is the new official name for the new grid opening soon after the closure of InWorldz recently.

Islandz will be a closed grid and will not be hypergrid enabled.

On Sunday 19th August Beth Reischl started the setup for the database recovery apparently and once that has been completed then work can start on the OARS.

So far no date has been set for the opening of Islandz. Stay tuned for further updates very soon.

Kitely Market sales jump 300% since InWorldz shut down last week


On 2nd August 2018 Ilan Tochner the CEO of Kitely announced a new record of a 300% sales jump on the Kitely Market since InWorldz shut down last week. This is a huge jump in sales growth for the popular Kitely Market.

DigiWorldz and Discovery Grid saw increased growth in sales during the past week. Other grids most likely saw increased sales too.

The blog post reads…

InWorldz, one of the oldest and largest OpenSim grids, has recently shut down. Since then, many InWorldz residents have moved to other grids in search of a new home. Thanks to Kitely Market, we now have some hard data that shows the scope of this exodus, as well as which grids were the preferred destinations for InWorldz residents.

We have seen a remarkable 300% spike in Kitely Market sales since InWorldz has shut down, as users that moved to new grids began restocking their avatar inventories. InWorldz didn’t allow its residents to use Kitely Market, so for many of these users this is the first time that they’ve been able to buy from our marketplace.

We saw Kitely Market sales begin to rise on July 26, a day before InWorldz shut down. The graph below compares sales from the week since InWorldz shut down, to the average weekly sales in the three weeks before that. Kitely’s own grid experienced the biggest growth in absolute numbers, but DigiWorldz and Discovery Grid experienced the most growth relative to their previous sales levels.

InWorldz is now offline and has officially closed down.

This is a such sad day for the OpenSim community and all InWorldz residents.

Last night there was one final gathering where over 60+ people attended on InWorldz Desert Island saying their final goodbyes.

Goodbye InWorldz 😦

Thanks for the happy memories over the years.
