shops shops shops adds adds adds

Inworldz is growing and each time I open the viewer, more residents have come in, a good thing to see especially to the founders and people who work hard to make this place come alive.
After some emailproblems ( had no address anymore for a long time and was sort of homeless,did this myself I guess) I was not so aware of the messages given by people about new shops or items to sell :-)
Oh my my !!, it looks like SPAM !
I made a new email account for this tornado to collect his wind :-)
My goodness, luckely I did ! Do you feel also the increase of messages ?
Inworldz is very 'appealing' for business people , no cost to set up or import things such as pictures, templates, UV maps etc...a big saving for merchants.
A dress for instance, before it goes in sale, you have to spent minimum 50 L$ before it can be put in the store in the 'other world'.
This amount can be much more if you have sculpted items to go with the creation.
So no wonder that Inworldz is being invaded by new store people :-)
This is not a bad thing and keeps economy going but I hope this will not become the major activity of Inworldz or become Shopland like 'the other world'
This futur image and migration scares me ...

I hope Art, fantasy and being different than most commercial SIMS, will not decrease.
Money gain or greed will not take over the Art and fantasy , so let us live nicely together Inworldz, but at the end I'm afraid business will take over just like in RL !

Today I will send my members a group notice for their new gift to be take in the store... no spam by me in other groups or forum !
Yes Yes, I know I'm a very bad merchant :-))))


  1. One thing that works in our favor is believe it or not the low cost on land. Merchants aren't under the pressure to immediately show a profit or perish thus allowing a more leisurely growth. Oh yeah if the land price was high then things would be very different. I figure that we may strike a healthy balance between the two.

  2. You can be right...balance is the key
    Hopefully they will not become greedy even if their cost is low, or a massive invation of shops (I'm not talking like a merchant lol),thank you for joining my blog !

  3. Mira, you should post in the forum! until the bugs preventing attachments in group notices is fixed, the forums' the best place to reach your clients. It's not spam, it's good business. I myself go there a lot to find items. I can't wait to go pick up my dress, it's gorgeous!!! xoxo

  4. I did post now in the forum after you kicked me in the butt :-)but I think the ads/clothes was a closed topic... oeps , did it wrong I guess.
    Well, if so, they will move it !
    Yes i think it is a lovely dress :-))
    but you are looking great in the Japanese style as well ...^^
