The posts bring up some points, and I think the easiest way to respond is point by point, so here goes. Please understand that I’m only going to address each of these things only briefly. Our actions and further updates over time will show how we actually carry through with our plans.
Mistake 1: Lack of Development or Special Events
And I hope that our recent history of improved quality in Twinity shows that we’re actively developing. You’ll see updates frequently.
Mistake 2: Too Expensive
Regarding this one, let us know your thoughts.
Mistake 3: Developer Program Cost Money and Was Too Restrictive
As mentioned before, we’re actively seeking new developers, and currently doing a lot to make it east and cost-effective to get up and running as a Twinity developer. Give it a look, and remember you can always contact partner[at]twinity.com with any questions about the programs.
Mistake 4: Allowing Pollution
Twinity has always had a clear line between public and private spaces. We hope that this balance will help us to avoid this type of situation.
Mistake 5: Damaging policies and development changes and Mistake #6: Stubborn refusal to listen to new ideas
Regarding this one, I don’t have much to say. We’re very open to feedback. If, at any time, you feel that we’re not listening, you’re free to let me know personally. Comment here or in our forums, and address the comment to me, Jeremy, directly.
Thereians are Entrepreneurs; Thereians are Creative People; Thereians are Outdoorsy and On the Go; Thereians Don’t Like to Be Ignored
Any former Therians, new Twinizens – any additional thoughts on those points?
We’ve gotten a lot of feedback that suggests that those points are all true. To that end, as we mentioned in the welcome package, we’re trying to empower that entrepreneurial spirit and creativity as much as possible. We’re also in the process of increasing our support coverage to try to make sure we’re catching all the feedback coming in.
In summary, I really, really appreciate the analysis, and we hope that we can continue to show you that we’re doing our best at listening to your feedback and meeting your requests in Twinity. We know we’re not perfect, and we know we have a ways to go and lots of room to improve to provide even better service, even more creativity, fun and excitement, and we ask you to join us (and to be reasonably patient 😉 ) in the journey there!
