Hypergrid Business statistics from Maria Korolov remain a waste of time to look at:

1. Take a look at the waving curve of rising and falling ghost town sims. At least, smart OSgrid regularily deletes their numbers by 20-25% every quarter. The other grid operators indicate nothing.

2. The term “Sim” remains undefined and statistically indiscrete. The category of Standalone Quad-sims and Infinite regions only underline this fuzziness related to ghost town sims.

3. From a mathematical viewpoint, the validity of the statistic has no value due to lack of statistical error of margin. Alone the mere estimate of 20-25% of rise and fall from OSgrid indicates that the confidence level ranges at 75-80% and is dropping if you include the error of margin from other grid operators.

4. As to the dubious sample of grid operators themselves, no quality criteria or benchmarking is implemented.

Come out of the shadows Maria Korolov and provide a better statistical approach than merely body-counting the rise and fall of ghost town sims.

For the purpose of hypergrid businesses, Maria Korolov’s dubious statistical approach is a dis-service for Opensim.

Compliance with DMCA and the Online Shopping Assistant remain to be minimum entry & registration requirements for any legitimate statistic of hypergrid business use.

Beyond the above due diligent compliances, legitimate entry & registration requirements for the bona fide Contract Capability of Grid Operators needs assessment, especially with regard to:
