  1. We all know from a recently nuked thread that someone who may seem nice and rational one day, can turn into a raving madman the next. All the more reason to keep your RL as hidden as possible. That does not mean we are hiding anything.for nefarious reasons. We're just practicing the same internet safely protocol we teach our children and it would be wise if everyone followed.

  3. Maybe it is not too late for this Ebento weekend offer, because I bought it just now. It is, strictly speaking over the time set for the weekend sale. Sometimes the time is stretched a bit. Talk about triangles, this must be super low (1100) pr chair. And only 2 Li per chair and 2 Li per table. It was not a front display, it is up in 2nd floor, to the back. https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Petrichor/136/40/2070

  4. Those of us who’ve been in SL a while will recall the tag line; “Your World, Your Imagination”. Is sounds like you’re advocating to remove some of that “imagination”. For many like myself, SL is a place where our physical disabilities don’t matter as much. I can not just speak and move normally; I can FLY and TELEPORT. Best of all, by hiding behind my avatar I can be mistaken for “normal” and spared the pity of well-meaning people. There are bunches of social networks for people who want to use them as dating services or business networks, so why make sl “just one more of those”

Here is the page contains an alphabetical list of all stores and which region they are on: https://slhomegardenexpo.com/shopping-guide/ The website also has pages for each region, with a listing of stores on that region and links to the stores: That is how I did targeted visits. It is easy to get lost just wandering around.

  7. Hm. Hmm. Well, even if it's a bit of a necro, it does give an opportunity to bash gachas, so .. ... Gachas are obvious gambling á la lootboxes and should be banned on the same grounds, and if LL can't be bothered to, one can hope that legislation makes virtual gambling more constrained to force them to deal with it. As mentioned, you can put empty gacha boxes on the MP which is obviously fraudulent (and depending on what you write in the MP description you can well say 'this is an empty box' and people who think they know what they're buying will technically have little grounds of maki

  8. This was an interesting edit. My left eye messed up because of the alpha in the hair. I wore GA.EG eyes. The hair did not blend well with the eye. I'm still not completely happy wit the eye. I also found some problems with the hair's shadows on the forehead. Otherwise there was little editing. It is mostly as snapped in the viewer.

  9. This looks better with a dark forum background. There is a little app that goes in your browser that lets you easily click between lite and dark backgrounds, Dark Reader. My pacifist side... from the days when I often played in combat-RP games. Here I was playing with one of my old system layers outfits from the combat days. If you don't look too close the old layers look OK on my BOM (Redux) body. However, when I was editing in some close ups I saw a lot of problems. Wearing these old system layers clothes makes for a lot of Photoshop clean up. Mesh clothes are sooooo much bett

  10. Gambling is gambling, even when you call it a lootbox or a gacha. Just a matter of time before legislation forces LL to ban 'em. Even EA did away with them, seeing the writing on the wall, and EA is terrible about monetizing everything they can.

  11. Sounds like a Ponzi scheme. The only people getting rich are those at the top. Any miner that sells their mine for silver will never realise any profit from the sale so that’s never going to happen. The mining will become harder over time so any future investors will struggle to realise a profit as that profit seems to be determined by two things. Popularity and the price you feel like setting the silver at that day. There is no way for the players to exchange silver for linden unless they themselves buy a mine, from a miner and start mining themselves. However, as stated above, this

  12. Thank you all for your great advice! You've definitely brought up things I haven't considered. Best part is I now have a good plan based on everything I've read here. Now I just have to dig in and learn. Maybe I'll never be great at it, but I'll give it my best 😊 Thanks again!

  14. That makes sense to me. I don't recall ever looking for a place and judging whether it was worth visiting because of its traffic count. When I use search to find someplace new, I usually scroll through several pages, reading descriptions to figure out what's supposed to be in places that sound interesting. If there's no description or just a few meaningless keywords, I won't bother visiting. I truly don't care how popular a place is. What counts is whether they have something I am looking for.

  19. I haven't read all 8 pages of posts... anyway, I have revealed the real me a long time ago. BIG mistake. That 'great revelatiion' opened the door to a couple of stalkers. One stalked my in my rl. That was a very scary time. SL is like RL.. nice people but lots of crazies and stalkers too. I prefer to keep my rl unclutered and safe. I will voice with only people I have known for yrs.. same with exchanging pictures (faces only). If someone sends me an unsolicited d*ck pic, they are immediately muted. Better safe than sorry. I go to sl to play, create and relax.. not to drag my sometimes complic

  22. You say a lot of things. Produce a lot of word salad. It’s not that difficult to understand what you are saying. Or your idea. It sounds like...a Ponzi Scheme. If it looks like a Ponzi, sounds like a Ponzi, walks like a Ponzi then...

  25. So a player can use L$ to buy Silver $ and then use the Silver $ to buy Mines which they then sell for L$. Sounds to me like you are right back to basically exchanging Silver $ to L$, which leads into the 'possible money laundering, etc..' issues.

A longdrawn carol, mournful, holy, She chanted loudly, chanted lowly, Till her eyes were darken'd wholly, And her smooth face sharpen'd slowly, Turn'd to tower'd Camelot: For ere she reach'd upon the tide The first house by the water-side, Singing in her song she died, The Lady of Shalott. ~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson

  30. If you really think it's a new scam and people aren't yet aware of how it operates then as well as the Abuse Report, you could summarise on the forums how it works, without giving any names or locations. However, I'm afraid that the people who tend to get scammed are not those who frequent the forums, and so the best way to stop the scammer is to raise the Abuse Report and let Linden Lab look at both who it is and how they're tricking people. Well-meaning attempts to warn people can sometimes backfire spectacularly, as in a few years ago when people were advised to delete a certain d

  32. Oh my gosh so much this. I also find it amusing the creator of this thread also outlined their own experience with doxxing and attacks which highlights another extremely important reason people may wish to remain fairly anonymous or 'hide behind their avatars'. It sucks to have your privacy invaded. It sucks even more when threats are involved. I think a lot of people are careful about what they share, and with who, because of this.

It is the Grief Containment pond at Cecropia http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cecropia/145/109/23 It is a curious place the pipe the leads into it runs all the way to the Prim Oil rig where prims are dropped in to the other end of the pipe unless you pull a lever there and for a while crystals come out instead.

  35. So: "traffic has been irrelevant for about 10 years now. Maybe longer." AND "I usually search for specific things not random things and just go to the highest traffic place." LOL So just excise traffic like a cancer and life will be grand, right? It's funny how people who advocate this would never want to live one minute with Google like that and with their pages. And you also want a lot that you went to and got value out of, because it was first place for a reason -- everybody went there -- to swim up to you from the depths of randomness and say: "Welcome!

  36. Firestorm has two, wholly different Search systems: The "modern" Web Search system and the Legacy Search system (shown as individual tabs for each main category). It is the Web Search that is - apparently - suffering. Furthermore the Legacy system defaults to being sorted by Traffic - highest to lowest. It can also be sorted by Name/Title in Ascending or Descending order. Traffic count has long been an utterly irrelevant metric and by all rights should have been nuked from the entire system (in terms of being sortable), though such would defeat part of the purpose of having the Legacy sys

  41. If there is a scam in SL, always describe it here in the forum. As has been said, don't reveal names etc. Just describe the scam itself, so that forum users can be aware of it, and not be taken in.
