The Duran Duran islands are gone. If you click the SLURLs from my previous posts on the matter, the pointer lands in the middle of the ocean. (The avies they created for the band members still exist, at least for now, though Andy Taylor's avie disappeared some time ago.)
I'm not the slightest bit surprised. I'd expected it was only a matter of time before they gave up on ever coming inworld and while it would have been lovely to have been proven wrong, it was not to be.
It's strangely liberating, to be honest. Why I came here is no longer relevant. Why I stay here is.
