E N Z O: We have decided that we will stop charging for citizenship
E N Z O: this will create many good results and one or tw negatives
"Yeshua": whats the catch :o
E N Z O: the "catch"
E N Z O: AW will offer an economy model similar to a restaurant
E N Z O: You join for free
E N Z O: NAME
E N Z O: PASSWORD
E N Z O: EMAIL
E N Z O: you will have one of several "Basic CAV Templates"
E N Z O: with a limited choice of "clothes"
E N Z O: if you desire to customize your av... purchase credits and use them
E N Z O: or win credits in a game like bingo
E N Z O: and use them
E N Z O: noone "has" to buy anything
E N Z O: all legacy avs will still be there
E N Z O: thats for cits...
E N Z O: there will no longer be a fee to license the server
E N Z O: at least not the 69.95$
E N Z O: world pricng will be based on size
E N Z O: user counts will be upped
E N Z O: likely to 50
E N Z O: as a base
E N Z O: no Voip charge for worlds you host yourself
E N Z O: there will be no tourists at all
E N Z O: all users will be cits
E N Z O: free cits
Chris the Pegasus: (no costs for voip on worlds you host yourself , means free voip)
E N Z O: world cost will be similar to "world renewal pricing "
E N Z O: world hosting will likely remain the same
Current World Owners:
E N Z O: a. your worlds will be reset to the larger user counts
E N Z O: b. depending on size and options you will get credits in your account
E N Z O: the idea here is not to upset you but to make your worlds larger and cheaper
E N Z O: all recurring fees will be discontinued
E N Z O: most cits are on monthly billing
E N Z O: annual cits will (like world owners) get a chunk of credits deposited
E N Z O: credits initially will be able to purchase these items:
E N Z O: 1. Custom Avatar Items
E N Z O: 2. World Licenses
E N Z O: 3. World Renewals
E N Z O: our plan will be to open up the ability for artists to contribute to the CAV path
E N Z O: and recieve credits for their work
E N Z O: ulimately a Universal Object Path...
E N Z O: will allow you to purchase Models that can added to your inventory and built into any world allowing that path to operate
E N Z O: but this is a future plan
"Rinzler": Will we be able to convert the credits back into real currency, a la Second Life?
E N Z O: initially not Rinzler
E N Z O: the OP for the worlds will stay the same
E N Z O: just like your avatar path
E N Z O: but if you want Uni CAVs you can set that into the field and allow people to use them
E N Z O: so for instance...
E N Z O: who here is an artist
E N Z O: ?
E N Z O: Ms Julie makes the MissJulieBESTHOUSEEVER.rwx
E N Z O: she submits it to the Uni Path
E N Z O: I buy the ablitiy to build it 1 time
E N Z O: i go to my spot in Mars (which has allowed the Uni OP)
E N Z O: and I can build the house 1 time
E N Z O: anyway...
E N Z O: that is a future goal
E N Z O: for now the three items are:
E N Z O: Av Items/ World license/world renewal
E N Z O: the focus is that Cits will be free, worlds will be bigger, there will be no initlail license fee, and credits will be used for many in uni purchases
E N Z O: there are many items that perhaps seemed not to make sense that were neccessary...
E N Z O: like the new browser support etc.
E N Z O: we plan to have the credit system rolled out by the 15th
E N Z O: June 15th
E N Z O: we will also release a couple new av types
E N Z O: Male/Femal Default have had improvements
E N Z O: Anime M/F
E N Z O: there will now be Teen Girl and Teen Boy
E N Z O: no tails yet
E N Z O: and Kids
E N Z O: I would love to have the entry world be a simple tutorial with a revolving teleprt list for whatever the top worlds at the time were
E N Z O: Roy had made a nice one
E N Z O: do you think a simple tutorial world with a choice between several popular gates to worlds make sense?
E N Z O: world sizes will remain the same
E N Z O: cits will be free
E N Z O: all worlds get voip
E N Z O: no tourist is needed
E N Z O: and more users will be applied by defualt
E N Z O: one more biggie
E N Z O: since we will go to credits for world renewal....
E N Z O: we will also offer (at least on renewal)
E N Z O: monthly
E N Z O: as well as annual
