I've not always been premium, but have so for the majority of my Second Life. Originally signed up a few months after joining, dropped back to a free account about a year later, then, maybe two years after that, went premium again and have been so ever since.

I like my little slice of Bay City.

I've been premium for years, since at least 2012. I get the L$300 stipend. I'm not really sure what made me go premium. For a while I rented here and there and eventually lived in a series of Linden Homes. Recently I bought my first parcel, a 1024 across from Linden protected beach. I love that. I definitely like having 60 instead of 42 groups (I wish I could have more!). The premium gifts are meh.

What I'd love to see for premium members is an idea that I saw Penny Patton propose, around being able to move more easily within Mainland.

I have paid for premium because I get the Premium Sandboxes to use, and a default home which I use as a base to res and test stuff.

I will always be a premium member for the sole fact that I love living and owning land on the SL wild wild west of the Mainlands. Endless roads to travel etc. I have had Linden Homes which I loved, Every style. Now I have a double plot of 1024's with a hobbit house and I love it. Stipends could be more but still good deal for me. I also love the private and mostly empty sandboxes and Premium only sims to explore. Never a griefer to be seen.
Are you looking forward to the new Linden Homes? Could you see yourself moving?

I'm premium, have been for all my avatars life. and since I still get 500L per week stipend I actually get some small change out of it, 26000L$ is a bit more than what the yearly premium fee can buy.

I haven't been in a Linden driven sandbox for at least a decade. Are they really so much better these days?
I must have a look then. Then becoming premium might make sense for me.

I've been premium since a few days after I joined. I did it initially for the Linden Home, and then stayed premium because most of the time I've owned mainland. I have rented from private estates from time to time, but there's just something about owning my own mainland parcel, even if it's in addition to renting a little place as well on a private estate (I like setting up houses :) ).

You can only get to a Premium Sandbox after your membership takes effect. There are 4 or 5 sims of sandboxes and usually lots of space to use.
Once I see the new Linden Homes I will decide if I will give up my mainland plot to move.
