Why The Adult Grid stopped showing figures

As some of you may be aware, there has been a somewhat heated discussion on Hypergrid Business as to why Inworldz and us have stopped giving our Grid figures to HGB. I can only speak for TAG and I wanted to lay the facts as they are for us out on the table, as you know that we are very transparent grid in our operations.

The first point I would like to officially clear up is Active users. As we are not Hypergrid enabled, Hypergrid users are not an important metric for us. Therefore on HGB Active users are counted on a grid if they hopped there from another grid, thus for these grids they will always seem more active than the closed grids, as we don’t get random folks popping in from the other grids and pushing the active user count up, while we rely on only our members for our active user count so that puts us at a disadvantage to the hypergrid enabled grids.

The second point I wish to clear up is amount of regions. We have at the time of posting this, 91 regions. A region to us is counted as one paying sim, as in SL. We do not for instance count in sq meters or kms or any other form of measurement, a region is a region wether it is a standard region or a VAR. The way HGB counts regions is somewhat baffling but it works for them, but not for us, for instance TAG was made out by this method to have 428 regions, so you can see that it is not correct for us as a grid and we do not want to give the impression we are far larger than what we are.

If you wish to know how TAG is going, please do not hesitate to talk to us as we value you, our Taggers. I am happy to report that TAG is solvent and can meet all of its financial obligations including cash outs etc. and is growing on a daily basis and we hope that you continue with us as we grow. I also just want to clear up one last point and that is that I have never worked for Inworldz, I just did the Stats as a private person as I enjoy doing it.

Fully Grid Wide Networked Vendor System

As part of the TAG marketplace website, we have released a fully grid wide networked vendor system.

Your Merchantbox works as the server, so you dont have to put any of your items in vendors. Set up goes via the marketplace website, where you can also track your sales and see on which region you sell better then on another. It has profit share and an affiliate option and the vendors are low lag as they only use 1 script per vendor.

4 different vendors: 1-prim, 4-prims, 8-prims and 12-prims

TAG is the first and currently only opensim based grid with a fully networked grid wide vendor system (as far as i know).

You can get them on the marketplace website of which you need a seperate account for.

What is Consie up to now a days?

Hi everyone,

its been a while since i posted on this blog, but i thought it was about time again.

In December 2015, i took The Adult Grid over together with Darieth White and ever since we both have been working hard on making improvements. In just little over a years time the amount of regions on the grid have doubled and the amount of registered users has aswell.

TAG is a wonderful world with lots of creative people and places to visit as you can see on our Flickrpage https://www.flickr.com/photos/145392242@N05/

We are not linked to Kitely, but have our own marketplace with a fully working networked vendor system that is being released today.

We have 3 different size regions with 15.000prims for the price of just 15USD and mainland for those who would like a smaller plot. Mainland is divided up in plots of 2048sqm and have 940prims available on them. For new Taggers those plots are free of rent in their first 30-days after registration.

On a technical note, TAG is running on our own high spec servers, which means we dont rent space with other opensim hosting companies.

We have our own currency an do weekly payouts via paypal, We have a fully networked directory listing and hud system which makes it next to the inworld search easier to find places such as clubs, shops, RP regions, etc etc.

So Consie is still around and i invite you all to come and visit me and the other Taggers in The Adult Grid
