Bye Bye onrez 50% closing sale by GREENE conceptThe web shopping portal onrez will shut down on February 11th. Linden Lab has bought both of the competing platforms – onrez and Xstreet SL – and onrez will be the casuality of this move. I personally regret this for various reasons: not only did onrez had the better user interface from a merchants perspective, it also charged no commission fees for sales. I hope Linden Lab will save some of the features of onrez and implement them on the Xstreet SL platform.

To show our gratitude towards onrez and its users, for the remaining time we have marked down all our items listed by 50%.

That’s right – get everything by GREENE concept which is listed on onrez (which is basically everything except the new Emphasis chairs) for half the price! I will pull the plug some time on the 10th as Linden Lab announced balances do not get withdrawn automatically.

Bye, bye onrez – it has been a nice time. Thank you!

Linden Love

July 11, 2008

I could not believe my eyes, when I checked the recent sales statistics, and saw that Whump Linden has bought two pieces of furniture from us. Whump works as a web developer with Linden Lab and is about to furnish an in-world office for himself. He found GREENE concept via the “History of a virtual couch” article on New World Notes, and chose a Berlin with Holstein/cowhide design and a San Jose bench in anthracite.

As some of you might know, every Linden is supposed to have a selfmade pet teddybear they hand out to residents for special achievements, favours or when they feel like it. Whump Linden has a rather nice bear with fireworks strapped to his back. The bear utters some funny lines when clicked. The photo shows the bear visiting the new GREENE concept shopfloor.
