Kitely sales go up, but it looks like InWorldz is going to fail with its new venture, Islandz. I made a map tonight while there. It looks like they have only 13 regions active. And some of those are actually empty islands or waterways. Does not look good.

Another disturbing thing is that they are using bitmap images of SL continents as filler when you zoom out on the map.

Trust is tough to build, and easy to lose. I truly wish Islandz the best, but they have a steep hill to climb after losing so much. I had land in Inworldz for about six months. A huge part of their marketing was telling everyone how bad and scary Opensim is. The problem for Inworldz/Islandz now is, not only did they collapse and lose customer data, but subsequently their customers came to Opensim and found quality products and services in both providers and assets, contrary to what they had been repeatedly told.

I also believe that closed worlds do not offer enough. With the hypergrid, you can choose your provider and still visit friends who have chosen another, or who have decided to host their own. There is so much more freedom.

:) this is purely how i feel & nothing else, i just need to write this.

indeed trust is hard when one person messed all up (being kind here).
so many debts since months, so much lies (experienced, no gossip)...

pple who gave her so much money 'to start' over i cannot understand & feel sorry for them (hope they wont experience same all over).

some friends i knew, tried since a few years (it went worse & worse since a few years) all kindsa things to 'keep it going'.
nothing of all the kind efforts they made helped - at contrary : they were never listend to & treated like 'not matter'.

many ppl discoverd now that, as always said in iw, 'only there it was safe & all hg-others were only copybotting grids & unrelieable', that thats a lie.
sadly all this had to happen (copybotting did happen there too btw, rotten apples are everywhere - closed or hg)

and all our inventories & creations (many were iw only) are lost to us.
when i came 'dragged by friends' from sl to iw i didnt know yet about hgrids & if i had, i wldnt have lost so much (as so many pple did).

at first i went (still need to delete that prog) to discord, where 'the place to be would be' to hear news. it made me sick to read what was written there, so didnt went back.

only one thing scares me still is that she kept saying she would keep all our inventory. she doestn have that right (kindly said)
it still worries me.
anyway...

Thanks Chris Namaste for the warning, I just signed up for "Discord" but will not install their application. And we will try to be positive about things in general.

The whole InWorldz story shows us we need to be careful to whom we give our trust. We put many hours of work in our virtual worlds, not only for the benefit of ourselves , but also for others who enjoy our work and have a good time playing on our sims. For me Kitely feels way more safe , the only thing im worried about is Ilan's 24/7 support, he should take more time to sleep :)
