IDEA how to increase Second Life user retention rate - Codename: [ Guardians Of Second Life ]
The idea is to simulate the old SL Mentorship program that focused on helping new SL users get fast in love with SL.
This time they would get paid L$ for mentoring work.
The name of the program: Guardians Of Second Life -
5% on top of every fish & coin value from budgets would go to into SL Guardians POT ( just like local FISHPOT in buoys ).
The size of the POT would be transparently displayed on a website for everyone to see at any time.
Guardians would pick new SL users from Second Life starter areas / islands and register them as under their protection for 1 to 2 weeks. They would use special HUD developed for this purpose and it would only pay SL Guardians for actual time spent with the users under their protection / mentorship.
Gold & Fish Hunt players don't loose any % from their fish or Gold. And for the land owners the 5% that instead of going to fishers and hunters would go to SL Guardians (that help solving the biggest problem Second Life has - users retention in this environment).
So many people that sign up for SL account and then log into drop out right away because they don't find anything interesting to do and don't find any interesting community to belong and get integrated into.
This would be the main job of our SL Guardians to fix and solve to make Second Life grow in users and its virtual economy that we all so depend on. Because without growth of virtual economy there is no virtual economy.
