Dear 3RD Rock Grid citizen,
As you may be aware, 3RD Rock Grid is going through a number of changes as we transition to a new ownership model. We hope all of these changes will contribute to making 3RG an even better place to call your virtual home.
One of the changes we have in mind is to transition away from our directly managing our currency, the Geode, otherwise known as the GO$. Most likely we will switch to the Podex Exchange (http://www.podex.info), which already supports a number of other grids, and provides the means of exchanging currency between those grids.
There are a number of reasons for this move, chief among them being legal changes being made in the US, Europe, and elsewhere that dramatically increase our liability, as well as the associated security issues.
As a part of this transition, we will ensure that all of our citizens’ account balances are converted in a way that is as orderly and convenient as possible. In preparation for this conversion, we will first deal with the balances remaining in stagnant accounts. For the purposes of this transition, we will define any account that has not been logged into or otherwise used in anyway in the last 18 months as being stagnant.
What does this mean for you?
First, if you regularly log in, and have a GO$ balance, you will continue to have that balance. Eventually that balance will be converted to the Podex. More information will be forthcoming as it becomes available. Meanwhile, you are free to request a cash-out if you like.
If your account is stagnant, and you have a GO$ balance, you will be given until 31st August 2015 to either reactivate the account (simply log in), or request a cash-out of that balance. That cash-out will be transferred to you via PayPal.
Any accounts remaining stagnant after that date will be considered abandoned, and all GO$ balances will reclaimed by 3RD Rock Grid, in keeping with our Terms of Service.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us via the support page, http://3rdrockgrid.com/new/support/.
Best regards, and keep on Rocking!
The 3RD Rock Grid Board
