Prokofy Neva Posted January 5, 2020 Share Posted January 5, 2020 I don't mean to be coy, but I honestly don't know how to describe this weird thing, and why/where it happens. So you know how when you usually log on, there is a flood of IMs, notecards, landmarks, even content coming in. There is for me, anyway, with various customers and friends and all kinds of people sending stuff. I don't believe in the "my messages cap" excuse because if you link your SL account to an outside email address, the messages generally come in there and you can set your phone to see them if you're out, for example. Yet, there is something about how things get trapped or don't come in, because here's the thing. Sometimes when I log in, "There in the sudden blackness, the black pall. Of nothing, nothing, nothing -- nothing at all." If I see on my accounts page that somebody sent something, and I log in and there is nothing, I vaguely wonder, "Now what is that thing and where is that thing?" And here's what I discovered -- by accident. If I reach out and block something -- then unblock that thing -- suddenly, all sorts of messages, notecards, and content come flooding in. And I see there WAS in fact all this stuff. I have to remember to UNBLOCK that thing I just blocked so I don't face problems from it later (like a rental box). But I have now literally done this trick hundreds of times for years now, and it occurred to me to ask WHY since it seems to be happening so much lately, i.e. log-on, nothing, then block, then unblock -- and a flood. Why would these seemingly separate actions be connected or trigger one another? And the thing you block and unblock doesn't matter -- it can be anything, your object or someone else's. BTW this also works if you have blocked a person, and then sometimes unblock them (you may have blocked them accidentally or can't remember why you blocked them). Suddenly, all the messages and notecards rush in. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
