Abolishment of Premium Accounts
What a premium account gives you
- Access to a second tier of customer support
- A 512sqm deduction from your land tier fees
- The ability to buy land
- A weekly stipend
What a premium account gives you if you own landsource
- Access to a third tier of customer support
Why Premium Accounts don’t make sense
- Pay US$72/year, your stipend is approximately L$8,000 more (US$32) if you’re on L$500/week, and approximately L$2000 less (US$8) at time of writing than if you’d bought that much L$ on the LindEx
- If you get concierge level support, the second tier support is moot.
- If you don’t get concierge level support, your support requests are likely to be similar to those of a Resident who has a basic account and rents the same amount of land that you “own”
How to get rid of Premium Accounts
- Stop accepting new premium accounts
- Continue paying stipend till the end of the recipient’s billing cycle, then give them the then-market value of their premium fee in L$ (e.g. monthly/quarterly/yearly fee’s worth of L$) minus the total stipend they received during their billing cycle (obviously not taking L$ from their account if the result is negative :-P )
- Since basic account holders who rent lots of land will have the same support requests as premium account holders “owning” equal amounts of land, reduce customer support to Concierge and non-concierge level support.
- Retain first 512sqm deduction from tier fees.
