Going into a sandbox I saw a request to clean up after yourself (which makes sense everywhere!)  Is there a proper way to do that?  I used "Create" (from the pie) and made a prim to learn with.  To "clean up" I used "Take", which placed the prim in my inventory.  Is that what one is supposed to do?  Do I get to keep the prim and use it as my own?  (I currently have only a basic free account.)  Thank you


As a club owner, I very much appreciate you thinking about this!! Too many people leave their stuff lying around (which we can prevent or automate the cleanup of but it's still nice when people think about it).

You've sorta got 3 choices, depending on what you want to do with the stuff and how much you build.

One is, like you said, right-click and do Take. This is best if you've made something you do want to keep and puts it in the Objects folder in your inventory. Best bet here is to, in the edit window, give it a name before doing this. If you don't, you'll end up with an Objects folder full of things named "Object".

Two is to right-click and do Delete. This also cleans up but the object ends up in your Trash folder.

Three, which is weird but if you end up being a rabid builder you will end up liking, is to set (in the edit window) the object to be Temporary. This, after one minute, will delete the object. No trips back to your inventory - that's it, it's gone, it can't be gotten back. As somebody who builds a lot (when my region is happy) and finds out she's made total crap, I use this pretty frequently. If I don't, my trash folder ends up with a bazillion things named "object".

In-world, search places for the Ivory Tower of Primitives - if you're looking to learn how to build, that's the place to start.

edit: and there is really no connection between account type and how much stuff you can make. For the most part, account type is about the kinds of support you can get (help from Lindens) and how much land you can own.
