    I haven't played in 4 years. I checked in today and even the recommended places are dead. Where is everyone?

    Numbers of old timers logging in are down, if my Calling Card notifications are any sign. However, if new friends are acceptable, concurrency is relatively constant. About half of the "live music" venues (in Events) are quite crowded every evening SL time.

    eh, I'll be getting back to real life soon enough that new friends aren't worth it.

    I logged in once last month, someone offered to share some newly acquired widget that had some wholly inappropriate options, someone asked me for lindens to buy new hair (desperately needed new hair), and I waved at Sarah.

    Good times.

    Speaking of widgets, when did gatchas start and exactly what are they?

    I believe gatchas are kind of like bubble gum machines. You pay your lindens for the chance to get a particular color/style of an item, and you may or may not get that, but you do get one of the items.

    It has spawned much trading of the items, as people sometimes don't like what they got, and want what someone else got.

    I had a popular sim for 7 years. It's popularity went way down and I closed the sim. Haven't been around much. I blame it on mesh. Thats not why people went to SL.

    How would mesh affect the popularity of Second Life sim?
