The plan!

Posted in BRN NEWS on September 26, 2009 by Matty

EDIT: Donator is up! at the Tutorial Library!

In a few days time I will set up a donator- the BRN needs to raise 20,000L in order to purchase 8192m of land

Theres no way I can afford that so I will call on the group to help, you haveno idea how reluctant to do tis I have been. I value you all as members more than anything in the world. I hate taking from anyone. I also don’t expect you people of the BRN to go out of your way. As much as I love and wish for the BRN to continue, I would rather you all have food on your tables.

After the land purchase, a trusted community Member here in the BRN has offered to hold the land for us so we will not pay much tier. With donations going to him to assist in covering.

I will post another notice/blog post after I have set it all up! Thank you all for your patience

The future of the BRN

Posted in BRN NEWS on September 11, 2009 by Matty

Well everyone- it’s been rocky… first we lost the Texture Market and now Ak Yip has informed me the sim he is on is also going poof. Mr Yip has been a big contributor, donator and supporter the BRN and I am so thankful for his continued support. The BRN Would not have gone this long without him.

The duration of time we have left is unknown- stores lost are as follows

– Mattys Low Prim Store

– Art Garden Escape

– BRN Event Hall

– Ak’s Free Sculpties

Ak’s free sculpties may make a return depending when/if Ak gets a new store and decides to keep them. The rest most likely won’t as theres no way I could afford the land Ak had donated to the BRN on his sim for whats been a year.

Meaning the BRN will be reduced to (for now) the Tutorial Library, Freedonia and Evatars.

The group will continue to function as a place of communication, learning and networking for builders of all kinds in Second Life, and I hope you all stay in it despite the freebies being lessened- the group that gathered around the BRN was, is and always will be spectacular, talanted and wonderful and I always though of the group itself more valuable than any freebie.

I am truly sorry everyone for failing you all like I have. I have tried so hard with all my heart and I have been sitting on this news for some time pondering many escapes but to no luck. I hope you all can forgive me.

On that note- get the resources while you can! If you have any questions IM me.
