I’d spotted in some Group Messages that there are “issues” which as always I totally ignored. Now I’ve seen too many of them and it looks like it’s a bigger issue.
I’ve put the link to the official Second Life Status page which shows that something is happening but makes it seem a small thing. From what I’ve read some of the big shops are stopping all sales until it’s sorted.
This doesn’t mean you can’t SL, can’t grab freebies or can’t check out the wonderful Christmassy sims it just means don’t buy anything until you’re sure it’s all back to normal.
