I agree - the upgrade rocks! For starters my shirts no longer lose their perms when I box them up for sale. That saves me a lot of time and hassle.

Well done on winning the survey - the hard work Ilan and Oren put in over the past year is paying off. :D

Congratulations!!!!

I just commented there, and in my g+ feed and over on opensimcity.org [the latter of which I recommend joining].

So, the short of it, is that now I am all commented out, tired, and will not comment further in this thread other than possible one-liners!!!

Congratulations to Ilan, Oren and Kitely for the great showing in the HGBiz survey.

I listed Kitely as my "home" grid in the survey and gave high marks for everything.

One comment in Maria's report that I think needs to receive some attention... Regarding Kitely, she says...
"It ranked..... surprisingly, third in community. Kitely is not known as a community-oriented grid."

I think that is a common perception (or misconception) that is unfair to Kitely.

Part of the problem is the definition - what makes a grid "community-oriented" ??

I think Kitely has a very good and active community. The evidence can be found right here on the forums. But there is more evidence: how many grids have a welcome area that was designed, created, established by users who volunteered their time and talent? And then there's the transfer stations - Kitely created something that did the job but "the community" spoke up, Kitely listened and a better way was found with major community help and effort. The community input Kitely asked for and received on the creation of the Marketplace is another example. And the current discussion about "Towns" is another sign that when "the community" sees a problem or a place for improvement, attention is paid.

There are other examples of community input as well but consider the importance of the ones I named above - welcome center, transfer stations, marketplace - these are basic building blocks of a good and innovative grid - things the owners of most grids would do their own way and not even consider opening the floor to ideas from mere users.

I think Kitely has a strong community feel and that is a credit to its owners and its users. Kitely doesn't get credit for this.

Obviously, this survey shows us that Kitely users think there is a strong community here. Other grids take note.

Thank you Danko,

Please repost your comment in the Hypergrid Business comment section as well, where Maria and people from other grids are more likely to see it.
