SecondLife becomes more expensive for education
« on: October 06, 2010, 07:56:36 AM »
From the Second Life blog:

"We will adjust how education and non-profit advantages are provided, effective Jan. 1, 2011. 
All  education and non-profit private regions of any type, purchased after Dec. 31, 2010, will be invoiced at standard (i.e. non-discounted) pricing.  All currently discounted renewals which occur after Dec. 31, 2010, will be  adjusted to the new price at that time. To continue to provide  entry-level, private spaces to educators just launching their programs,  we will be providing Homestead and Open Space regions to qualifying  organizations without their meeting the retail full-region criterion. Customer Support will be available to answer any questions that you may  have about these changes."

Im not sure if this is more expensive or simply an encouragement to use less resourses :P

Basically, they have decided to let you buy the low-prim cheap sims that are probably more suited to non-profit organisations without having to purchase the full sim as is requirement for everyone else.
