On Monday, July 1st, Linden Lab issued a blog post announcing important changes to how Second Life US dollar accounts are to be handled with regards to the Lab’s subsidiary, Tilia Inc (which the blog post officially introduces for the first time) and credit processing (cashing out) from Second Life.
The announcement caused a certain amount of confusion among users. As a result, a forum thread raising questions was started, and since the initial announcement, the Lab has been trying to address these, including starting a Tilia Q&A thread of their own, which has been subject to a number of updates.
Due to the continuing questions, and in support of the forum efforts to address them, on Tuesday, July 9th, the Lab announced a special town hall meeting will be held specifically to address concerns, questions and confusion relating to Tilia, its role in managing accounts associated with Second Life and cashing out US dollar amounts from the platform.
The meeting will take place on Friday, July 12th at 13:00 SLT. It will be attended by:
- Grumpity Linden, Second Life Senior Director of Product.
- Patch Linden, Senior Director of Product Operations.
The meeting will take place at the Town Hall meeting islands, and I hope to be able to record the meeting and produce a summary with audio after-the-fact.
In the meantime, the Lab will continue to try to respond to questions asked via the official Tilia Q&A forum thread – so do continue to keep an eye on this to see if any specific concerns you may have are addressed between now and the meeting.
