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.


Yeah, the blocks that she bought out from other people to turn into virtual condos.

I especially loved back when she bought sims that were originally an artist colony and instead of even bothering to speak to any of the current occupants about the transition, just wiped everything out and planted her little French resort.

I'm happy I've never had to touch anything that Anshe's rested her greesy-ness on prior. She's a real A+ star person.

Firstly, is Anshe Chung a Linden employee?


I think LL works for Anshe.

I know a certain resident that would have been banned from SL long ago. But I'm not keen on naming names.

Wondering about motives
09-05-2006 01:16
I am building a small, rental village in one sim with my business partner, and a while back, I noticed a small plot of land (ca. 1600 m2) right next to us, was claimed by Gov. Linden to be auctioned. I thought the price was going to be cheap...it's auction after all...

So, I waited and waited for it to come up for auction, even e-mailed LL, when it had been 4 days or so. When it finally did come up, I placed a bid. I kept an eye out every day, no one left any bids, until about a day or so before it closed. Anyway, we calculated how much we were prepared to pay for the land, and if it went up that, they could have it. So, I placed our final bid, and it barely made to the highest. Well, barely was enough.

After the auction closed, I got to see who was the competing bidder. Well, whaddya know...AC. I just couldn't figure out why she would bother with a 1600 m landplot alone, surrounded by plots of other owners. Our first guess was that she wanted to sell it back to us with an outrageous price, but why would she bother? One friggin small plot, with no use to anyone, except us, she buys whole sims, fgs..

After reading this thread.. I dunno... maybe LL thought it was going too cheap and asked AC to step in. It just baffled us a lot. After this incident, btw... we got a pain in the butt griefer harrassing us, so we had to ban her from all of our lands.

Why she would bother? Because she'll make money. Knowing that other people want it will give her even more money.

When I first started and you could buy any size land through the auction page I finally won one but lost the plot next to it to her. She cut it up into really small pieces, all little blocks surrounding my land and set them to sale at outragous amounts. Of course, griefers were the ones to buy the land and put up some of the nastiest rotating textures I have ever seen. I wish I had a picture of it as each one was advertising something and facing my land.

Oddly it seems that her having more competition these days the land prices have gone up. I've been renting for maybe a year now because I'd rather Hiro get my L$ then her.

Assuming they really do want people to continue sing the mainland as something more than a sandbox, LL will sooner or later, well apparently later, see the wisdom of offering flat-rate first refusal sale of abandoned land to neighboring owners.

Perhaps they'll even see the wisdom of offering free-possession first refusal of abandoned land to neighboring owners. Then they can easily, fairly split it evenly between contending neighbors while offering an incentive for people to maintain mainland projects with the hope of being able to expand without paying through the nose for the "privilege."

Ya know who else emigrated to Germany, seized large amounds of land and sat on it until it was siezed by force.

Hitler. That's right. Hitler.

Coincidence? I think not.

*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.


hahahah BULLSHIT. Does everyone really believe AC has some secret pact with LL? Take a look at LL's investors, AC is not one of them. Shes a paying customer just like the rest of us. Dont believe that? Well AC missed a tier payment a while back, LL turned her account off. If shes in bed with LL, why would they turn her account off?

Everyone who bows in awe to Anshe has fallen to her marketing tactics. Yes, AC is a business woman, and apparently a good one at that. Shes nothing but another AV in the game that happens to buy/sell land. Yes shes probably the LARGEST land retailer in the game, and that doesnt happen without being business minded.

Sneeze her name the wrong way and get banned? HAHA IM me in world, I'll show you a notecard i went head to head with her... and I'm still here, no ban, no blacklist. No single AV in-world has that kinda power...

The only partnership AC has with LL is that AC buys islands from LL.... period. She may have some influence on feature proposals, but other than that.... shes just like you and I, except a bigger bully

That's not why her account was cut off. Her account was cut off accidentally through an automated process that had nothing to do with a manual Linden's hand.

And I don't see how having enough initial money to buy up half of the land in SL to resell back out for multiple exponential amounts is a "good business woman." Strikes me as a greedy one, and in light of her business customer service, an inconsiderate selfish one.

ya the automated process was... she didnt pay her tier bill, and poof gets turned off like the rest of us

she didnt have the initial money, she started with her $10/month and started SL as an escort. With her whoring $ she got into land and it all went from there.

Paying her mainland Chinese agents US$50 a month to work 6 days a week 10 hours a day to line her pockets, and do the majority of her grunt work helps out too.

The above 2 lines are fact. Dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

She doesnt necessarily own half of SL. I know for a fact her footprint in mainland is MUCH smaller. So what if she owns a lot of private estates? Good for her if she can make some $ on them.

I've had many runins with AC and agents over the past months with mainland land, believe me... so what if she buys auction land, we all do. Its called making L$. :) Just dont buy overly priced mainland if you cant help it.

One day she'll have a competitor that makes a dent in her income... oh wait, that's already happened too :)

On a side note, AC sims are some of the best looking ones I've seen in SL. The design work is absolutely awesome, so due credit to whoever makes the terrain files for her sims, and due credit to the builders who create for her too

Not for nothing Dragon, but unless this is an alt of yours, I've known Anshe longer than you. :P

I can confirm the first one, since I still have the rate card (with full perms).

Former. Not currently, as far as I know. Technically, I think it was 'escort' - not 'hooker'.

April's Fool's Day....

From: Zonax Delorean
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?



It was April's Fool's Day, if I recall.... The account was 'reactivated' and all was well the next day.

Big Joke, huh?

Its all very well talking about Anshe Chung and her Second Life business but there is another factor no one here has debated on this thread........

Yes I accept Anshe is a substantial business within Second Life, yes I would accept that on tier income alone she is also a substantial financial asset to Linden Labs, and yes I accept that as Governor Linden said, "She is an effective Government within this virtual world"

But she is not the only major influence or contributor to Second Life, and there is one other who in my own opinion is at least as powerful and influential as she, and perhaps far more so as time progresses.

He appears to be a modest avatar that uses his power and influence wisely, yet should he speak out all would listen including Linden Labs, and his untimely departure could cause the utter ruin of Second Life's economy. Yet providing he continues to use his power responsibly and his decisions are fortunate the Second Life economy could grow and prosper.

Finally he controls more than 8% of the total linden money supply has more than 8,000 clients and his terminals are all over this virtual world.

This person is Nicholas Portocarrero the chairman of Ginko, or to put it another way the Chairman of the Federal Reserve. He is the closest person I know that could be considered indispensable to Second Life

just another user IMHO.... as in doubt LL would listen much, and if he left would just be replaced by someone else. Dont forget that everyone in currency trading is still bound by tier, so even if 8% of the currency market is controlled as you say...... only so much of that can be put onto the market in a rolling 30 day period. I would definately not term him "Chairman of the Federal Reserve" especially since LL has an account specifically for that task now.

Plus your post seems biased, since a LOT of your posts are about Ginko. Personally I've never seen a terminal yet. Im not bashing you, nor Ginko financial... just stating that with my other posts, that a user within the game doesnt really have any assumed power thats sometimes perceived by others in the game
