Daniel Voyager has reported today that the total net loss in private estates in Second Life since January 1st this year is now 2689, a decline of 11.3%. The total number of Main Second Life Grid regions is now 28254 ( 21168 private estates & 7086 Linden owned). The figures come from Tyche Shepherd who posts a weekly update about regions counts in Second Life during the past week on SLUniverse Forums. Tyche adds that “it’s lower than the bottom of the post openspace repricing decline where we saw a bottom figure of 21195 private estates on 5th April 2009.” It is, in fact, the lowest figure since July 2008. And it shows no sign of reversing – it’s a steady decline.
