Littlefield Grid - Living in a world without commerce....

  • I really enjoyed Second Life, this is where I met many great friends, saw many wonderful creations and some of the best times...why did I leave?

    Well I use to make things, I had a store on my sim, a sim I shared with other people, I use to pay $100 per month for my quarter share of a sim, and it was great but then I was shown something new, Opensim.  OSgrid was my first Opensim home, we had many wonderful regions there, and so I gave back our sim, as my partners had already drifted away from Second Life so I took my $100 and helped with my new partners putting it towards the servers we had in OSgrid.

    After 2 years we decided to create our own grid, so now my $100 was put towards having a share in a whole grid, this is just amazing, I went from a quarter share of a sim to being part owner of a whole grid..life is very good now :)

    So why is living without commerce wonderful, well in Second Life owning a store and trying to make money to cover tier was just plain hard work, and for me being in Second Life was meant to be fun a hobby you might say, but it all got too much and the fun just started to slowly disappear.

    So being in Opensim especially being on Littlefield Grid has bought the fun back to being in a virtual world, now I can create things when I feel like not just because I have to keep coming up with new content for my store and making money.  

    Imagine my delight, wonder at finding things in Opensim for free, no money system people sharing where they can what they create, now this is fun and stress free.  I love creating things for the members of our community, watching ex Second Life people joining our grid and seeing the delight in their eyes when they realise that yes the things in our stores are FREE.  Watching them take as much as they can on one shopping trip just in case we change our minds...no we won't change our minds, we made a choice never to have commerce on our grid and it's for the better.

    Yes we create things for our community having shut off the ability to take things via hyper grid, we do this for a couple of reasons, one we have licences with SL creators but the second thing is our grid is not a huge shopping mall for the meta verse, we want people to come and live on our grid and be part of our community, not just to stop and shop at, our grid is so much more than a shopping mall.

    So if you like to have a fun time, enjoy no drama and enjoy being part of a fun community come join us at Littlefield Grid and discover all the great content we have.  We have some wonderful creators on our grid who work hard each day to provide great content for us, plus they enjoy living and being a part of our family.

    One last thought, I get really annoyed when I see comments about there being no good content in Opensim...well if you are lazy and don't want to create your own then yes you have none, but if you work hard like our creators do on LFgrid then there is so much wonderful content out there, do like we did, we didn't have it then we built it...easy really

    ...your world is what you make it!!!

    Besides our grid is not about content, it's about our community first & foremost.
