Lindens Need to Fix Inventory Loss in The Worst Way

33 posts in this topic

People who do not shop cannot fathom how frustrating this is. I have spent thousands of US$ in SL only to have a great percentage of that poofed with this problem twice. I find it interesting that the problem seems universal, the home and garden type items, not the clothing and attachment items. Why in 13 years has this not been fixed? Is there something that the Lindens gain in this? More shopping to recover items means more money? I don't know, but this is just ridiculous.

That is an EXCELLENT POINT and one I hadn't thought about. Most all my losses (I am not counting notecards and landmarks mixed in with the folders) have been OBJECTS.  Not clothing when clothing had its own icon and actually I can't remember losing any mesh clothing either although I only have a few favorites so perhaps I wouldn't have noted missing items.  

I buy very little as I blog for some major brands and have plenty of great items coming in all the time ---- but that being said, the first time I lost a huge amount of stuff was pretty devastating. 

I think it is good we are talking about this. I have been talking about it for about seven years but on one seemed to be listening. 

I have to say that there have been may great improvements in SL lately and perhaps with enough NOISE, some attention will be paid to the inventory and asset server (I have no clue where the problem is :D).

So thanks for sharing that thought. 

 

I have lost a few textures along the way but not much else but Home and Garden type items. No sure WHY that didn't register until now. It could be a coincidence of course LOL.

Maybe enough people can supply logs and a time of deletion, Lindens could discern a pattern?

Well possibly if we NOTICE but I suspect that lots of folks don't note missing items until the LOOK for them specifically and that could be days or months down the road.  It's not like a pink polka dotted flag waves and says "woo-hoo - you just lost 10,000 items; want to let someone know? "  LOL

Honestly I can't imagine that they DON'T KNOW. This is not new news. And it seems to be getting more prevalent or at least more folks are noticing and talking about it.  They will attempt to fix things or just let us complain. We don't seem to have much say in priorities. Happily we have had some nice perks in the last year. Better than not in my book.

I understand it would be difficult to accumulate the relevant data but I don't see an alternative, unless they have some clue where to look.

And of course, my Pamela Galli homes were retrievable via CasperVend system. of the 4000 items lost, I could regain only 29 of them this way.

That's another good point, I believe. Maybe inventory loss helps keeping SL's economy going... If people just don't drop it for good, tired of annoyances like those.

Just lost 4000 items today, with no way to retrieve them apparently. These were collected, and carefully, as I really did have some plans for much of these items (no copy, of course). I've put in a ticket, but am not very optimistic. Meh.
