The Founders answered Residents Questions & concerns, if they had any, on this… you can read those here
You might be sat there wondering what all this means… to me it means.. securing the Future of InWorldz To the Founders I believe it means realising their own dreams, which in turn helps us to realise our own.
When the grid was young & only very few of us about, Ele & I would often chat… in IM mostly, her on her sim or going around the grid looking for bad scripts etc & me in my store making up outfits & boxes…. she was full of wonderful ideas for the growth of IW & knew exactly the sort of world she wanted to create… most of it was way over my head lol. So then she would have to get untechnical & just spell it out in lay mans terms… I think it was mainly her own enthusiasm & dream that kept us in IW… She would describe a platform, which to us, seemed to go way beyond what SL had to offer, even back then before the lindens began to systematically destroy what it had begun. When we moved servers to CariNet Inc… it didnt really mean much to us, we just Trusted that the Founders knew what they were doing. We had better servers & would be able to grow….
InWorldz has always been about its Residents, from its humble beginnings to its growth now of over 800 Regions… The Residents have always come 1st… their needs, their wants, their desires & this latest move… has just secured the Future of our wonderful grid… imho
We are ready to grow & expand… bring it on!
Smiles.. See you in our Wonderful InWorldz
