How do I unsubscribe from store IM's?

Question

  • 0

In Firestorm you click on yourself and select groups. Then select a group and view info. Then deselect Receive group notices and Receive group instant messages.

In the official SL viewer you don't have the option to turn off group IM (which is reason in itself to move to firestorm) so you just have to leave the group if it is spammy.

I have to respectfully disagree with the honorable Ohjiro-san.  What you have done is sign up to a non-group list using a "subscriber."  These are useful because, as you have found, they don't take up a group slot but still let you get notices of new sales and new releases.  However, they are also annoying, for exactly the same reason!

To get out of a subscription, go back to the store in question, and click the subscriber sign again.

Send ing this IM to the group owner usually works for me:

Quote

Hello, I am in your automated notification list that I do not remember ever opting into. Can you please remove me from all your automated notification or news lists per this section of the Second Life Terms of Service and Community Standards:

Disturbing the Peace/Global Attacks: Examples of prohibited attempts to disturb the peace include, but are not limited to: 
- Repeated transmission of undesired content;

Thank you.

As for being a reason of leaving Second Life Viewer (LL Viewer) for Firestorm as @Ohjiro Watanabesuggests: don't do it. The LL Viewer often performs better than Firestorm for many people. There's nothing wrong with looking at it, but never switch because someone said you should. It is best to look at all options: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory

Lindal's advice will work in some cases. Unfortunately as you say sometimes subscribers mover or are deleted. When you get a message from a subscriber it "usually" tells you the location of the subscriber.  You can use that link to find the new location.

If it does not tell you or if there is nothing there, then you can write to the owner (likely there name is on the notecard) and explain the situation.

Also unfortunately there are SOME (I have a few and my alts too) companies that add names to their subscriber. YOU never touched the object in question.  The only way I have been able to get off those is to write the owner and tell them that I WILL send in an abuse report if they don't take me off the list. That USUALLY works.

Good luck. It IS A PAIN.

Thanks. It's the owner of Kabuki, a HUGE animation company here in SL. And frankly, I've IM'd him and been ignored.  I'm pretty tired of it, and hate to file an abuse report, but that seems my only recourse at this point

Use Alyona's suggested format (it's firm, but polite), and don't just IM the owner.  Send them a notecard as well.  Many busy merchants' messages get capped.
