"We had to evict about five more merchants due to inactivity, the shortest one had not been in GCG since September eleventh. We now have a zero tolerance policy on our thirty day active condition unless the member has let us know about RealLife issues that affect their time inworld" Winter Silversmith, Chief Administrative Officer for Manitou Tourism said this morning at a press conference.
"We are also taking steps to help alleviate the pressure felt recently on the housing market by the closure of the GCG Freelands". The Regional Municipality of Manitou has constructed cottages in the empty spaces in the Manitou Mall and they are offering renters three hundred personal prims. "The same rules apply, you can not own a region or other residential land in GCG, you can not be an ALT of someone already living in Manitou and the other covenant conditions apply" Winter said.
"This move is gravitational shift in development I mentioned yesterday. We expect to have only about half a dozen bricks and mortar stores and our kiosk parks left in the retail region. Let me repeat, we are not evicting those merchants who are active in GCG nor those active ones who want to keep their storefronts in Manitou" Mr. Silversmith told the Corran Journal. "This move is eliminating those shops which members just set up and then only check on to collect their Maples every few months. We do not and will not tolerate that activity in Manitou, either you play an active role in the grid or you can go back to SecondLife. Sorry but we are not a parking lot."
New members displaced by the recent closures are welcome to contact Winter Silversmith inworld about one of the low prim cottages now available in Meaford district of Manitou.
