Got the boot!! - kicked out

Recommended Posts

Hi ALL!! I’m an pretty new to SL and now that I think I got my avi looking decent (which was a headache for this rookie) I am finding that not only am I getting kicked out of certain areas for being new I am also getting the boot cause air have too much going on. My questions - I have payment on file how do I prove that I’m not a troll and get into different places? Do I / should I have my fun lady bits on and including HUDs when roaming and casually visiting? And lastly is the premium membership worth it? Sorry for all the questions I’ve tried to read a bit but there is just so much to learn and I’m eager to get my avi out without worrying about what else am need to remove from my outfits lol! Thx in advance.

1)  Some parcel owners block accounts less than 30 days old.  If that's you then don't worry about it over-muchly. Time will heal that one

2) Payment info on file is not the same as payment info used

3) Don't wear adult bits when not engaging in an adult activity. It just adds to viewer lag even when transparent. Same with HUDs generally, wear them to do the thing, then take them off

4) Premium is worth it if you want to obtain a mainland parcel or Linden Home) directly from Linden Lab and not rent from a resident-owned estate

5) You can't prove that you are not a troll.  Trolling is a subjective label that others you are engaging with put on you. Is not much you can do about how others see you in the normal course. Altho when we end up as the only lonely person in the playground then those other people may have a point  about our behaviour toward them

your avatar pic looks fine to me you've done a good job :) you are only 10 days old and thats why you get booted from some regions as Molly said lots of (adult) places have noone under 30 days allowed ticked i. And... NEVER wear your lady bits unless you go to a place where you intend (and its allowed) to engage in adult "interaction". If you wear your lady bits and HUD in other areas you might get tagged as an escort/working girl etc and booted cos of that. another thing to think about is not to wear group tags from... adult areas ... when going to a non adult region,  some regions dont like it when you show up flashing naked breasts  ;) that is also something you can get booted for in some regions. and NEVER go to non adult regions to ask for sex, thats trollish.

Premium is well worth it if you ask me, besides from having a Linden home(or buying a mainland region) you get 300Lindens a week stipend and can get into full events faster. also if you ever need help support is way better as premium :)

You'll hit that 30 day old mark and be good to go! Just remember to take off all the extra lady bits and huds and that should greatly reduce your scripts. Have fun and welcome to SL!

Aside from your avatar's age, you may also be wearing too many scripted items, or have an avatar complexity that's too high. Ditch the lady-bits (and the HUD that goes with it) and if you have a mesh body and head, detach the huds for those once you've finished setting up your outfit.  Flexi can also be a culprit for higher complexity so if you have flexi hair or clothing, swap it for mesh.  Same goes for old jewelry and footwear; make sure these are mesh too. It's pretty common for venues to eject people for having a script time or a complexity that's too high.

And it goes without saying that unless you are specifically visiting sex places, your manner of dress should err towards PG. Make sure your lady-bits and breasts are covered at the very least. If you're wearing a short skirt, make sure you have undies on too. 

Premium IS worth it, but only if you pay annually rather than monthly or quarterly, and if you want to own Mainland or a Linden Home.  You'll pay $99 up-front but over the year you'll get a weekly stipend of L$300 per week, which adds up to about US$60 at the current exchange rate, so the overall annual cost is nearer to $40. However, if you prefer to rent on private estate, or if you don't want a home at all, it's probably not worth even that.

Maybe there is another reason, if the place does not have a 30 day limit. Some people are a little paranoid, and think that people who manage to make their avatar look good in 10 days, have to be a new account of an experienced user.

These who are called ALTS (alternative account) are sometimes used to create drama and trouble. It is nobodys business if you have more than one account, but if a land owner has a bad experience with what turned out to be someone with a grudge who made a new account, they tend to be very suspicious. They could say one thing, but suspect foul play. Don't think too much about it. Land owners in SL can ban whoever they like without any reasons.

Just a thought. The other answers are probably more correct.

We call troublemakers griefers. Griefers have traits in common. The primary one is youth, less than 30 days old. Region owners do all sorts of things to keep griefers out. 

Griefers often have high ACI because they are wearing video crashers. So, try to keep your ACI below 200k.

Many events have performance problems and consider script heavy avatars a nuisance. So, your overall script weight can be a drag on region performance and over 3BM or even lower at events cause for ejection. But, 3MB seems to be a sort of generally agreed on cutoff.

Then there is height. In a world of 7ft (2.1m) avatars a 5-7 (1.7m) avatar is a child. That is cause in many regions for ejection.

There are all sorts of reasons for ejection. It isn't SL management making the decisions. It is individual region owners making the decisions. So of course it is inconsistent.
