WHY COST ISN’T THE REASON FOR SECOND LIFE LAND AND POPULATION WOES
BotGirl – Botgirl Lives

“I’m all for lower pricing, but saving potential residents $10, $20 or even $50 per month isn’t going to bring new people flocking into Second Life or keep discouraged residents coming back. The problem for most people isn’t that Second Life isn’t worth their money, but that it’s not worth their time…So if there’s going to be a “Rebirth of Second Life”, it’s going to come from figuring out how to increase the perceived value, rather than how to decrease the price.”

Excellent article and comments on this subject which is sure to be around for a very long time to come.

    I think Botgirl misses the point of the quote. She quotes an article about SIM cost but discusses resident costs. It’s sort of apples and oranges.

    As for whether or not it’s worth the time, isn’t that a matter of opinion? For people who wait to BE entertained, the worth will rarely, if ever, be there. They won’t make the effort to create or to seek. They just figure, “Hey, I’m here! Entertain me!”, and they won’t stay when (notice I say “when” that doesn’t happen).
