I logged in at the Plum sim earlier today, this being one of the relatively quiet old sims where I like to appear and collect myself before the rigors of the SL day begin. Plum is, of course, one of the very old sims, dating back far before my time; it used to be one of the welcome centres in SL, and still has a "Welcome Area", next door to a public sandbox. Though it's long been off the list of active infohubs, the structure of the welcome centre still remains, with a few informative signs and giveaways - or, at least, it did:-
No informative signs or giveaways, and parts of the structure itself seem to be missing. The Plum sandbox got plagued by some nasty and unimaginative griefers, recently; it's possible that someone's done a mass return of objects, and bits of the welcome area went with it. I guess it's too much to hope for that the area's being redeveloped. Pity. These General-level welcome areas - even the still active ones - often look forlorn and abandoned. And this one now looks more forlorn than most.
