Here is a very simple proposition for Linden Lab that would make their committed corps of users who rent land very happy.
If you will not lower the cost of land rentals, why not give us more prims on the same land that we rent?
Even a token 10% right now would bring smiles to our faces.
As these charts show, and as anyone who has owned a computer for the past several years or follows technology knows, the price of storage has fallen exponentially..
Yet the cost of prims, which are basically data to be stored, has basically remained the same, with some exceptions for homestead sims, since 2006, when I first started tracking Second Life.
I do not think anyone would rent less land if they were given more prims. Land area is land area, and I am not proposing that the price of renting land drop. What I am proposing is that we users get more prims to design and build wonderful items with, since the incremental cost to Linden Lab would be minimal.
Let's see if this common sense idea will take hold.
