Recent comments on this blog, and at least one post on a Resident blog, express concern that Linden Lab is planning to raise prices on monthly maintenance fees for land. In order to clarify our pricing intentions, I want to reiterate that:
– we have no immediate plans to raise the ‘grandfathered’ island pricing. This doesn’t mean it won’t change at some point, but certainly not in Q4.
– we are evaluating changes to the configuration of premium /basic subscription models and to mainland tier pricing, but have no specific plans, and again, we don’t expect anything to change in Q4.
– we are also reviewing some pricing changes on the LindeX associated with rolling out more international payment mechanisms, but the variety of global payment mechanisms make this very challenging, and we don’t expect any changes in Q4.
Should we decide at a future time that we need to implement pricing changes, we’ll give as much advance notice as we possibly can to facilitate your planning.
