Return of the Living Dead

Recommended Posts

We're familiar with some listings in the 1,4xx,xxx range having mixed up graphics with other creators stuff etc (https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-4587), but...

In the last day or so, quite a few merchants have found that other old, deleted listings have been returning from the dead with random unrelated graphics. So far the ones seen have been in the 1,4xx,xxx range too (you can see by mousing over and checking the end of URL) but because they don't lead to a listing, you can't flag or delete them.

So, yeah, check your storefront today...

Yes, this shopper came across a whole slew of them while shopping today, using search on MP. What an absolute mess! I will not be shopping on MP for sometime now after that shock. It was quite unbelievable. Did Linden Lab now farm out its website programming and maintenance to a day care center or sumpin'?

They are the daycare center. From their work culture document, the TAO ...

Work Together

We are engaged in a wildly ambitious and complex endeavor. We need to take on risk and accept the occasional failure. But we dream, stumble and win only together. This requires a level of creative collaboration you won't find in many companies. You must not only respect but actively seek out differing views, and then find closure after dissent to move forward together. When you look back, do so to find ways to improve rather than to blame.

(Note the setting themselves up for failure, blunder, having to fumble for multiple views rather than solid management that runs the show. Clue, LL ... blame is good. Blame for failure is called performance based review. Better to not fail than to fail and learn from it. Unemployment is a great teacher.)

Walk in our residents shoes

We are blessed by some of the most informed, passionate, committed customers imaginable. They are our reason for being, they are our world, and we call them Residents. They are an insuperable source of advantage and an awesome responsibility. In every choice you make, consider how your choice will impact their experience.

(Point of failure, they've always been extremely out of touch. A nice thought, though.)

Good People Make Good Choices ... and Vice Versa

There's love in the spirit of our mission, the enjoyment we take in each others' company, the style and humor we have at our best. We're here because we're open to all the wonders of the world and the goodness in each other; even the cynics among us harbor the begrudging belief that all things are possible. This is a place where you can be you, and we ask you to make the choices that enable your colleagues to bring out the best in themselves.

(No, good people are good at what they do or they aren't. Being open to happy, fluffy love filled orgasmic experience do not good employees or an enterprise product make. Although I can see where a hippie promotion may spring to mind.)

Be Thoughtful and Transparent

We build trust through transparent and open communication. Be prolific in your communication but thoughtful, and remember that context is key. Report on your progress regularly and in language that benefits the widest possible range of your colleagues. You are responsible for ensuring that your messages reach your intended audience - make sure your signal does not become noise.

(Partially good advice. Should probably try this good communication and transparency thing with their users. Empoyees are need to know on their particular jobs, unless they have scattershot employees that are too aware of everything else going on that they're not writing code or doing their jobs for 40 hours a week.)

Add to this free food that employees get, the swag that they're so proud of and the hyper creative atmosphere.

Clue, if you're creating art, you hire an artist. If you're going to build a technical widget, you hire technicians that produce a measurable amount of quality product.

If you want to move forward, you admit that your own creativity and fluff bits added to a place of employment are causing your userbase to decline and your product to be inferior by comparison.

Sorry for that long post, but yes daycare is the root of the problem.

4 new borked listings in my store - items in the 1558xxx range.  Images not mine with my items' descriptions/name, etc.  These items have been in my store since before migration so they are not new items.  They don't appear in my edit listings so I can't remove them.

The odd thing is...the borked images with my descriptions - the real items with those descriptions are still intact with the correct images as well.  It's the weird duplication thing I had previously.

It seems that the theory of 14xxx borkage is still intact. Have not found borkage in other series of numbers yet. Please post if any number not in the series 14xxx is borked.
