I think it is a shame that InWorldz has been targeted by no-goodniks. Hardly novel, unfortunately, but a shame.
Would just like to throw this out to the founders, and please take in spirit it is given. And with a grain of salt
Every Tweet, and every announcement that InWorldz is being attacked creates a bit of doubt among those who frequent VWs, especially those many users who lack deep knowledge of the exploits being used. It also signals more no-goodniks who are trolling the waters that InWorlds might be an easy target.
While you certainly gain much sympathy, I do not think it creates great confidence in those who are being asked by your landowners to create businesses in InWorldz.
I completely understand the desire to be transparent to your loyal residents and many fans, but suggest perhaps phrasing differently when announcing issues.
I bring this up, as I have been hearing discussions about "what a shame" it is that InWorldz will likely be killed off by hackers. I do not think this is the sort of word-of-mouth that InWorldz needs.
The plans for the upcoming year address so many of the remaining issues that have kept many of my friends from IW - most of them are flyers
I am very excited to let them know that this is in the plans for the coming year!
