This seems like a childish and hateful response to me.
Perhaps this attitude helps to explain the low number of users present in Kaneva after so many years spent developing it. Not allowing virtual world enthusiasts and early adopters to discuss the matters that interest them – namely, among other things, the merits and demerits of different virtual worlds, not allowing the people I posed the question to to provide a response to me, demonstrating the employee’s inability to provide an answer to the question I posed – how do they expect to garner support by this grouchy repressive behavior?
The question I posed, why would someone prefer to spend their time in
the Kaneva beta, which is extremely limited in the range of actions
available to it’s users, compared to Second Life, which has many thousands of times
of virtual space as Kaneva, a developed economy, a scripting language, etc?
In my case, I drop in to Kaneva and other virtual worlds because I like virtual worlds.
I visit Papermint and IMVU and fire up Active Worlds at times. I’m trying a game
called Taikodom to see what a space game is like. Taikodom, by the way, looks beautiful,
and while the game is Portuguese interfaced at present, with the game chat being in Portuguese, I was greeted by helpful responses in clear English, and the interface was simple and intuitive enough that despite my never haver used such a game before, I was able to get out of the dock and see the beautiful space scenery without getting frustrated and quitting. The Taikodom site is at http://www.taikodom.com.br/Página_principal.
There’s another virtual world in development on it’s way into beta testing, Novoking,
website at novoking.com. I’ll be looking forward to that.
Commentators on the web express or report concern about government censorship in virtual worlds.
Who needs government censorship when you have “baby needs a nap”
behavior like that display by the operator of the Corelli avatar?
