We do not refund money for any reason. You can rent your land to get your money back if needed too.


After you buy the land with the first weeks tier a manager will add you to the tier system. This can take up to 8 hours depending on Managers  available.


1.Grace period for late tier is 24 hours, after which land may be reclaimed unless arrangements for a late payment is made BEFORE tier is due. If it appears you have already moved, land may be reclaimed before the end of grace period. Our Office bot will be sending out reminders on your tier 3 days before it is due and we will send out a notecard when the tier is overdue. That gives you 24 hours to pay. You can also pay any amount at the tier box if you are having problems also with the tier. There is no escuse to be late on the tier. If you are having a problem just send in a support ticket and we can make arrangements for the payment. You can turn off Reminders from the tier box by using the menu but remember you will not get any notices when you are late If your land is taken back and objects returned we are not responsible for lost non-copy items. If your land is taken back and objects returned we are not responsible for lost non-copy items.
