2015 PEOPLE: ART: Hobo Reserved Sandbox on Kitely. Hobo Island in SL up for sale

Hobo Reserved Sandbox on Kitely.  
 Hobo Island in SL up for sale.
I will be moving more of my activities out of SL.  It is time to begin planning on what will happen to Hobo Island in SL.  I will soon end my support for Hobo Island.  Here I offer some possibilities involving Hobo Island in SL and hobo activities on the Hypergrid.
Hobo Reserved Sandbox
on Kitely

Hobo Island in Second Life has been around for a long time. I have been supporting it for much of that time.  Partly because of the problems with the TOS and partly because of the shift of LL development to Sansara, I have been moving my activities to the Hypergrid (Kitely). Now I need to think about putting Hobo Island up for sale.  I am setting no date, but I am first offering Hobo Island to someone representing the Hobo Castaways (at no profit to me).  If there are no takers, I will offer it to the general public on a do-what-you-please basis.  If there are still no takers, I will abandon the land.  I will set up a hobo place in Kitely if enough people come to Hypergrid.
The tier for Hobo Island is $300/month

    Alternative accommodations

    • I have set up an alternative location on Kitely:
    • Hobo Reserved Sandbox on Kitely. For the Hobo Sandboxers
    • Hobos in Second Life are welcome to join the Sandboxers on Kitely
    • Cookie II on Kitely is the size of 4 sims in sl and can have 60k prims
    • The Hobo Sandbox occupies most of one sim-sized area.  
    • To go there, put the line below in the Nav bar of Firestorm. Enter.
    • hop:// II/93/376/22
    • Much of Cookie II carries Arcadia's work, including the slum content. 
    • Cookie II also has a music venue and may have more in the future.
    • If the current sandbox becomes over-crowded, I will get more space.
    • A new Hobo Island in Kitely is possible.  4x the space in SL. 
    • That would cost me $20 per month.  

    Basic conditions for using the Hobo Sandbox on Cookie II

    • No cost, no time charges, no cost to upload textures.
    • Kitely regular account is free if you don't need land.
    • You can use the Hobo Sandbox instead.
    • No prim limits, no script limits (for now).
    • No autoreturn.  
    • Untended builds may be returned at any time.
    • Parcel clean-up may be done on 10 min. notice if lots of stuff is around. 
    • Anyone who has not been banned can enter the area
    • Only people in the Hobo Sandboxer group have power to rez, and build.
    • Managers can invite, eject, manage ban lists, set music stream, return objects. 
    • If you want to build on the sandbox, contact me (Selby Evans) in Kitely.
    • You can use the Hobo Sandbox if you come in on the Hypergrid

            1. Nice list!
              The Cookie II world in Kitely now has the equivalent of 16 sims - 1024x1024 meters. We could expand the Hobo Sandbox to a full 256x256 parcel, if it needs more room.
