Well, I've found a newer, better, more in-depth, interactive, and customisable world toi live, chat, build, and play in. I'm waiting to be accepted to check the place out, and will definitely report back if it's of interest to all us chataholics.
Where is this world?
Why, There. No, really. It's called There.
It's still a paid service, but five bucks a month (fifty for a year, if you want) is, IMO reasonable. And gets you an equivalent amount of Therebucks to use in the world's ecconomy. Current exchange rate is roughly 1800 Therebucks per US dollar.
