Yesterday was Patch Linden's Jail and Bail event, in which people got to bid on various things such as a name change and Linden Home. But one thing many wanted was an extension for the Fairelands sims beyond the end of the Fantasy Faire, of which the last daily events are Sunday May 8. Patch was open to it, and when plenty of Lindens came in, Patch thought it was simple enough to arrange for the sims to stay up longer, the two weeks that was being asked for.
As it turns out, the sims are staying up slightly beyond the technical end of the Faire, but not longer than planned. This was posted in the Fantasy Faire group chat.
Fantasy (FantasyFaire Resident): Just a reminder: The Faire's programming calendar will end on Sunday, May 8. The regions themselves will remain open to visitors until Wednesday evening at which point the regions will be closed to the public. There was a miscommunication between myself and Patch. He offered a very generous extension that I had to turn down. I am grateful to Patch for his love and support of the Faire. Please blame me for leading him to believe that offering additional days would be alright.
So it appears the Fairelands sims will be up a little longer. But only for two days, not two weeks.
