having a dilema and this weekend limited 1ls sale item

every so often i get those days were i think do i want to play the game anymore in second life

and this week ive hit it again


the only reason i stay is that i love being creative
and making things
that OK may take me hours to create
but i get more pleasure seeing people use them
than i get from the few lindens they pay

id actually give them away for free if it wasnt for the terms of service from some of the mesh makers


so i noticed other designers selling similar items to mine for 10ls so i joined them

and at weekends i'd make a special outfit for 1ls which is virtually free

as 450 ls is aprox a british pound

the weekend 10ls sales were doing well i think id sell about 1,000ls worth of items from marketplace second life which helped me pay my 1,400ls  tier rent for 1 more week


but Ive had so many complaints................

about other sellers being under priced

i was even told i couldnt join a freebie group
to advertise to people to come get a gift
as in their words the other designers in the group would be upset
as im selling so much lower than they are
.
.

ive already been told to rise my prices

so i have from 10ls so i did to 49ls

which i guess is still low for a full outfit including shoes


 im thinking of knocking the 1ls sales on the head 

and shutting up shop

i understand to some people second life is a buisness and good luck to them

but in the 5 years ive sold on marketplace and in world ive only earned enough to

stock up on and  maybe treat myself to some nice textures to work on other ideas or builds i like

most sculpt and mesh items ive had to pay for with my own real life

full permission should mean full permission

 we pay real money for items to use to create and then to be told we cant do what we like with them is kinda .................disheartening and frustrating


so heres what ive been working on this week whilst recorporating from my operation


enjoy
