A post up at Wonderland gives us the latest numbers for active users in today’s biggest virtual worlds. World of Warcraft still ranks highest–and Raph Koster’s darling, Club Penguin, is only in number four (“only,” as if four million users weren’t enough).

With 500,000, Second Life just squeaked in at number ten. What surprises me most though is Habbo Hotel in number two: 7.5 million, Jeezie-creezie! The sheer number of pre-teens in the world overwhelms me. Just think, if they started an army, it would be hopeless. Everyone over the age of sixteen would be destroyed. It would be just like “Children of the Corn,” but with more furniture sex

    Habbo Hotel… Now there’s one more thriving virtual world that if I tried to do sex/gender observations in I’d be called a pedophile. Le sigh.

    Howdy Bonnie,
    If any adults wish to visit Jewelofindra.com…letting you know that this beautiful site is passworded and subscriber based so that NO children are allowed in. JOI has been up and running but is still a young community. This VR community was made by some outstanding VRML artists from all over the world. The avatars are with adult play gestures and JOI is constantly improving for their community Jewels.
