3RD Rock Foundation agreed to the Communities’ request at the last community meeting and a citizen poll and has dedicated a new shopping area, named ‘Gloebit Mall’ This is to compliment the retail shopping area on Sifton Mall at Mullins. The new area is attracting the best designers on the grid such as Dawn Harbour, Donna Anna and Abigail Loon alongside some smaller retailers. We will also be opening a grid owned shop with the proceeds going towards the general server and charitable fund, which will carry the 3RG Assurance Mark of quality. We will be running both geodes- our grid currency – and gloebits alongside each other, giving our citizens’ choice and vendors the opportunity to sell in a universal currency.
We are very happy to accept people into the new mall, but they must have an excellent history of customer support and a good selection of items to sell. We are registered with the DMCA and we are very strict in enforcing and protecting creators’ content. The new mall is just filling at the moment ,and so if you have something special to sell contact me at 3RG by IM or notecard. The terms and conditions of allocation are strict, and as a showcase mall we want the best we can attract for our citizens and the wider metaverse. The shops will be rent free for a year pending a review.
