Firstly, is Anshe Chung a Linden employee? If so then I can see her reasons to do this.

I was waiting on land to come up for sale adjacent to my own in Rason. It never came up for sale, it was just all of a sudden all bought up by anshechung.com without any of it being available for sale. Furthermore, Anshe Chung has it up for sale now for a very high price that us non corporations cannot purchase. Now, either Anshe Chung is an employee of Linden Labs or they have a deal together in order to keep land prices high.

My first concern is simply the monopoly that some people seem to unfairly have on land.
Secondly, and the reason I feel that this concern be in this forum, is that I'm concerned that this type of monopoly will hurt the economy of SL. Shouldn't everyone have an equal oppurtunity to buy land instead of the Lindens selling/giveing it outright to these corporations?

Maybe I wouldn't complain if anshechung would at least offer payment plans on thier non-dreamland properties. I'd be more than willing to buy portions of land or pay it off but, that option is just not available as I was told by Angels, an anshechung employee.

......and no, I am not a newb. This just happens to be a new av.

The previous owner of the land must have contacted Anshe for a quote on the land. You should've asked the previous owner if he/she were selling instead of waiting. A lot of people would rather sell to neighbors than the open market.

Don't try to find reason within the things that Anshe Chung does or, rather, how she's allowed to do it. It's only going to hurt your head or make you become disgruntled.

In fact it's probably better to not criticise anything She does, lest it get your account banned for insubordination. :cool:

No, Anshe is just another resident like the rest of us. She may have a lot more USD invested in Second Life than others, but anyone has that option if they choose.

The land you were waiting to go up for sale, was it owned by a resident or awaiting auction? If it was an auction, could you have missed it? If it was another resident, they may have chosen to directly sell to a known land trader rather than waiting for the open-market. Knowing the answer to this question can help us better address your concerns.

The sim was under Linden maitnence one minute (literaly) and then entire sim was owned by Anshe the next. Which leads me to believe that she is being given inside information or something in order to get prime real estate.

Was the land boundries purple by chance? I think the previous poster was right. This sounds like it was land that was setup as auction.

Could you provide us with the name of the region please, Summer? If you haven't already checked the closed Auctions page I'm sure someone would be happy to track down the information.

Normally land set to the Maintenance group isn't sold. Auction land is usually only set to Governor Linden with no group and a very basic parcel name, such as "[Region] 4096sq m". There have been cases where people didn't notice the tiny Auction ID belo the Parcel description, assuming it would go for direct sale rather than auction.

Previously it has been stated that parcels of 512sq m are set to First Land, over 512sq m are set to auction, and below 512sq m are usually offered for direct sale to a land-adjoining neighbor.

The land is Seoraksan. There was no purple outline and it was not showing in the auction block nor is it shown in the closed auctions. It was under Maintenance, there was no auction ID. It was claimed Aug 31.

I can only assume from the hassle I am getting that I am correct in my conclusion that Anshe Chung is either a Linden employee or has a deal set up with them on land. That's all fine but, I still believe that it is bad for SL economy that some members are given special treatment.

Anshe is not a Linden employee but unlike some here she runs this as a strict business and her company have a lot of money invested in the platform. She employees quite a few people so it is possible she (or her employees) were made aware of a land sale.

Having said that I do not know any real details of this transaction, however I can say that Anshe has always been fair and straight with her dealing with me.

Suggest you do a Google on Anshe Chung (and to avoid mis -information do the Google under the Google News option first)

Just my own views no disrespect intended

Sometimes Guy Linden or Gov Linden sell the land at 1.0 or 3.0 (again depending on which one does it). Perhaps one of Anshe's employees bought the land that way?

*sighs* okay, I did research on who this Anshe person is, I now know to back off. She is NOT a Linden employee but is obviously a business partner with them and a person can lose thier account and/or be blacklisted for sneezing her name the wrong way.

consider this topic closed by me.

thanks for your input.

Umm... a Linden sells entire sims at 1.0? L$65535? US$242 for a sim!?

Rubbish.. I've been calling her out since June 04. A lot of people have been. Never a warning or a ban. Don't let her or anyone else scare you away from your right to free speech.

As for special treatment, um yeah. Policies have changed to help her on a number of occassions.

From what I've seen, she's smart, knows how to run a business, her for sale signs are relatively small and unobtrusive, and she plants trees on at least some of the blocks she has up for sale.

If she's such a close business partner, why was her account banned/suspended for a couple of days, due to an error on the Lindens part... and turning it on back was still a fight for her?

Yes, it makes a pleasant change from the ageplay and Gorean threads.

It's almost as annoying as people with walkmans with substandard headphones going *tssssst dumpf tsssst dumpf tsssst dumpf tsssst* while they tap their fucking feet and occasionally screech some incomprehensible off key lyric.
