[07:24 PM] Ami Tamura: I hate to be a killjoy. but it looks like we shouldn't be adding groups pass 25 yet. "Apparently LL has enabled 40 groups on the servers. I would HIGHLY suggest you do NOT join more than 25 groups until LL announces this officially. I HIGHLY suspect they are just testing, and when they disable the 40 groups, you may lose all your groups or some of your groups... or maybe just explode. Please wait for word from LL!!!! Really! And please spread this around!
[07:25 PM] Ami Tamura: Jessica Lyon is from the Phoenix viewer team.
I don't particularly care, I've dealt with Jessica Lyon before, but think this through for a minute. Suddenly, you're able to add more than 25 groups! You can barely see for the confetti and glitter filling the air. But the Lindens haven't announced this as a feature yet.
* This could just be a test run.
* This could be pulled at any time.
* They could be live-testing for bugs in the code (it's happened before).
* There could be bugs in the code needing a rollback (it's happened before).
* Those bugs could glitch the system and end up, at least temporarily, glitching your groups in sundry and diverse ways (it's ALSO happened before).
So...hold your horses. I know, enthusiasm is high, I too want to see if I can max out that forty in a week, but...play it safe. Don't let the possibility overwhelm your common sense. Wait until the announcement's official and the Labs have fixed (most of) the bugs.
(Amusingly, while I was writing this, the Lindens formally announced the raise. So, there you go. Just remember--if you're in 1.x viewers, you won't see the new limit; only if you use 2.x structuring will the new group limit show up.)
Tossed another radio station on the station list, and I'm seriously considering making that its own entry, and not hobbling it with nostalgia and a fashion review beforehand.

And they wonder why we don't take them seriously.
