Gamification is also the idea offered by AmyNevilly, Managing Director of Second Ads
Shift from land model to gaming

And gamification is where Second Ads/ JobFox is putting its efforts.

How to start the fishing game
-
Fishing, worm sales, worm breeding 
-
Elaboration on the fishing game. These people understand how to build a game
-
Job ads are posted here, too
-
Synergism.  The job ads draw traffic.  The games, Gold Hunters and Fishing, catch people's interest.
Gold Hunt takes people all over the grid
-
I assume the Gold Hunt is selling traffic. And teaching the elements of exploring.  And, yes it is a social game.  There is a group (Linden Gold Hunters) that provides the Gold Hunters a chat line.   So they can be anywhere on the grid and still talk. The group has over 2600.  Sounds like it is working.

Here is a statement by the company:
ADS long term goals and mission statement
-
"creative, inovaitve and fast growing virtual enterprise"
-
"developing social games on this platform with a goal to solve currently biggest problem of virtual world Second Life which is low players/resident retention."
