all about groups…

Gorgeous gown isn’t it? It is one of Virtual Diva’s Group Gifts...and that is what am going to talk about today groups and group fees ~ remember this is strictly my own opinion though I have asked others how they feel and some defended a store’s right to put whatever amount for their group, others felt that anything above 300L was excessive…am not going to point out any excessive group fee as it has always been said if you do not like the group fee you are not obliged to join ~ just expressing my dismay to see group fee’s raised to triple their amount during Advent and wondering seriously why…several years ago I encountered that dilemma with a group fee and just shrugged my shoulders that yes I should have possibly joined the group earlier yet I was not about to pay 1,000 group fee to receive possibly a few unique gifts that I could wait and make note to buy in the store at a later time…it is the store owner’s right to set whatever amount of group fee they want either to become exclusive or keep out the spammers ♥ I do understand that as others agreed ~ am not sure how some feel paying a fee with absolutely no benefits at all ~ most groups are very generous with the gifts and worth each linden ~ then some groups have no group fee and their gifts are also top notch like Virtual Diva, for example, looking over at my 60 groups for the most part the group fees do flucuate from high to free ~ and for some of the groups there are no fee’s, no gifts just to inform where sales or where events will be held ♥  just a reminder if you do quit a group that has a fee either accidently like I have done on a couple of ocassions hehehe you will have to pay the group fee again no excuses ♥  that can get costly so be very cautious in leaving a group, which is another reason some store owners will put on a hefty group fee to prevent people just joining during the Advent season and leaving and that makes sense to a point for me just not upping the group fee to such an extreme it makes you wonder is it truly worth your lindens to even join…am curious what you all think on the subject of group fees ~ yesterday the topic got a really nice comment that will share in part because it was so well written:

“No, a designer doesn’t owe us staying in Second Life. They don’t owe us in-depth details of their personal life or why they are stepping back – we all have had to step back for a bit to concentrate on real life. No one gets upset at that and we applaud them for the decision to re-prioritize…But they do owe their customers respect – especially those that have been with them for a long time. If it was reality people would rightly feel burned to not know that it was even in the future…”

Thank you for taking the time to send me comments as I do read all of them, and sent back a response♥ For me today will be spent still opening boxes from Advents and sorting them out in folders ~ hugzz to each of you and remember you are special♥♥

  1. Interesting points you’ve brought up, my friend. Well, only yesterday I was a bit shocked to see a group join for 500L – I would have loved to have joined but that’s half a week’s rent for me. A shame, really.

    1. Am not sure what the reasoning is with the high group fees other than a tad bit greedy especially as you said 500L x how many group members ~ sadly I could not join a couple that were in that range and it is a shame ~ thank you for the comment ~ hugzz
