I am definitely staying in the 4096m tier bracket. Buying makes more sense, because there are no rules really, and I can create a small party / gathering space, as well as some shops for Ruth, and the OpenSim welcome center for our grids. I have been really ambivalent about being in SL. This is really only a couple of dollars more than I am currently paying. And I am more free to do what I want, and commit to a course of action in SL, that will be of benefit in promoting our community. Possibly bringing some income from donations and sales as well.
The first two, I will probably miss out on. They are not a lot of money, but I won't have enough in paypal to upgrade to premium and put down the bids, by monday. But an example of some nice spots with potential, that come up regularly. SL is dying pretty much.. but there are still nice opportunities to be found I think.
Mantle: Rated M, along railway with a train that comes by with tourists. 😀
Being sold at auction, 2 parcels totalling $4000L at current bids. Closing noon, Monday
Papa: 4096m - Rated M. A really beautiful spot. Being sold at auction, current bit $2400L - Closes Monday
Another spot I really like, that is for sale for $6000L. 4096m, roadside. Lots of road-trippers going by, and a neat little village springing up in the wasteland. It is surrounded by mostly Linden land.
