    I don't plan on filing a dispute for anything Ele and I don't want a refund for anything, anyone who does is a filthy communist.

    Steve, please do. I'm asking you to do so, as the company nor I will ever see that money. LoanBuilders will get it. So I ask you, please take your monies back, don't let them have it for shutting us down.

    I just purchased a 2x2, what do I put as my reason for dispute? Which do I click? Didn't receive an item I purchased? Wasn't as described? Unauthorized activity? Those are the 3 choices and are you SURE there isn't any way that you can save IW?

    Can the company go into liquidation and a buyer possibly be found to save Inworldz?

    Kels, I can't do anything about sending any payments, period. 

    Violette, we'll refund it starting tomorrow as we go through. Dispute if you don't see the refund come back through.

    Matt, I wish. My biggest concern at this moment is to get our customers and residents taken care of and simply close it.

    Hi Beth I am new to Inworldz, I had another account (was made a week ago) but it has my real name and i did not like that so i created this account and transfered all my $ to this account.

    my question is I paid by debit card how do I get a refund? I did not use paypal?

    Hi Stevie, I'll go through tomorrow through our independent processor where those transactions are sitting. 

    Trynatie, I'm so sorry, you MAY be able to transfer them through like Podex (I'll talk to Jacek to allow him transfers) into other grids.

    Alrighty, thanks so much, even though I am new I understand problems happen but yea this sucks :-/.

     

    Just be warned paypal or that loan place or even both can sue you in court, be careful.

    I am horrified about this news. I can't believe LoanBuilders did this. If you documented all of the correspondence between LoanBuilders and yourselves could you not take them to court over it? Man...SMH... I'm so sorry for you guys at InWolrdz. This sucks. LoanBuilders totally took you all for a ride. 

    I wish you all the best in the future and hopefully you can build another world after all this mess is done

    Beth are you going to be on?  Would you mind IM'ing me?  I've something to ask.

    You have my heartfelt sympathy.  Paypal pretty much decimated Virtual Highway also.  Arbitrarily freezing accounts and holding money for months before releasing it.  We here at Virtual Highway ended up reducing the size of our grid, but, we have been able to stay afloat.  If we can assist anyone during this tragic event, please contact us.  It's amazing what power Paypal holds over businesses.

    I think the only money I have in InWorldz is the $5.00 I used a few years ago to fund my account, so I could run software tests on the vending system I was asked to port-over to InWorldz from Second Life, where the product line failed against a new competitor on the scene.  So I'm not out much, and it is so long ago I doubt that a dispute on my part would be considered at-all.

    All that said,  a suggestion, for when the 'dust' settles:  InWorldz had is own proprietary LSL compiler.  It functions a tad different from the one in OpenSim, and the one in SecondLife.  I recommend you save that compiler as an asset that can be used elsewhere.  You might be able to sell it to anyone operating an OpenSim grid, for instance, and give them a choice that is different from the one that comes in OpenSim.

    Is it at all possible to do what some grids have done when having problems and perhaps just shut it down until  the financial stuff is settled and then reopen? This doesn't sound like something that has to be a permanent problem.

    I am sorry to hear about InWorldz closing. I have many good memories that I will take with me. I would like clarification please, will I be able to cashout the remainder if my Iz before IW closes?

    Oh Beth, I am so, so sorry. I can't even begin to imagine the sadness and heart sickness you must feel. PLEASE, if things turn around and you are able to get InWorldz back online, let us know. I am sure you have enough faithful clients who would return. My heart goes out to you. xoxo

    FYI - the IW website is not allowing cash-out, says that its not enough in USD even if it is.

     

    Also, Podex in IW apparently only lets you buy izzies, I don't see an exchange for selling or transferring, just links going back to the website that tells you to click the orange machine (there isn't one).

    @Beth many hugs to you. We are heartbroken and crying. I hope that a last minute solution can be found. It just cannot end like that.

    Also +1 on what Lindee said. If you have a way to come back online later please do. I am sure that people will return. We'll all pull backups and wait for you <3

    is there anyway inw can be put on the open market 

    and we all become shareholders

    Ele, please let the Inworldz site running. It may be of crucial importance to find each other again some day, if the grid or some groups are rebuilt
