Over the years I've read hundreds of blogs about Second Life. Some stopped blogging after slowly decreasing their posting, and some just stopped suddenly. I've often wondered what happened to some of them.
This information is for anyone who is curious about why I've stopped posting. Maybe it will help someone else from making the same mistakes.
It started when I made the mistake of asking Second Life Support if they could take off the automatic renewal on my premium accounts*. It ended up with all my accounts being downgraded to Basic, all my virtual land being marked as abandoned, and all my virtual property being returned in lumps. Even though an equivalent amount of virtual property was eventually restored the damage was done. I sold and abandoned the 'land' where the castle had been, and decided to start over in a new location, but found that I could no longer buy land in spite of my alts' premiums being paid through 2021. I was told "That's the way the system works." You have to agree to have automatic renewal or you can't buy land --so now I will either have to rent or set up the accounts to change to a monthly basis.
