  1. In regards to in world marketing ads you can take out in sl, what is the most keywords one is allowed? When i try to publish or update my classified ad most of my keywords are cut off or left out. Im using around 250-300 characters. I see some that have as much as 750 keywords. I looked on the SL Wiki and there is nothing that talks about amount of keywords allowed. Not that i can find anyways.
  2. Store Best Selling How does it work?

    Okay so tonight I was lurking about my own MP Store.. and decided to select the Best Selling (tab) to compare it to the relevance tab... i refreshed the page and I'm confused. I'm sitting here looking at dozens of products that have not sold 1/50th as well as my best stuff.. and all at the near top of the page. So my question is this. What is Best Selling (tab) actually supposed to tell you? I assumed it would be the best selling items based upon unit amount sold and the total price. I think I need clarification. Nothing about the best selling tab appears right. Please help.
  3. NEW GATCHA CATEGORY NEEDED

    Oh and fyi, Gatcha should have its own Category/sub categories/ etc etc and all such keywords expressed shouldn't be able to be keyed in to the general marketplace.. like if I am in Hats/.. that is a sub category for Accessories/ it ends with Hats.. I am sorry but Gatcha shouldn't be hijacking the entire string /Accessories and because a gatcha has 1 or 50 hats in it, it still shouldn't be listed in /Hats... it should be under Gatcha/Hats, etc etc.. Still 5000 more gatchas loaded since I started this session lol.
  4. NEW GATCHA CATEGORY NEEDED

    Totally Agreed! I dont mind flagging an occasional product. But LL has made Tens of thousands off my brand. My customers shouldn't have to click click click and filter like this to find out whats simply new on the MP. And for those that are going to scream this Marketplace isn't intended for World Source clothing, hair, animations etc etc, and not really for content creators, than Id like to see a declaration direction from Linden Labs Themselves stating so. Every single Content Creator or designer making stuff for the use in Second Life should be right here screaming and yelling at the top of their lungs until they are heard. It wouldn't be wrong. Id even be happy to head up to Linden Council itself and sit down and show them without contraints in place to protect their own Marketplace, its gonna be an ugly place to work in. Question of the day. How many Top Designers have left Sl completely and taken their wares with them, over crap like this and how many more are we going to have to lose? Going back to work.
  5. NEW GATCHA CATEGORY NEEDED

    There is a section on the marketplace for Gachas otherwise known as "Used Items" unfortunately too many gacha products aren't listed in it and you have to preclude them from category browsing and search by typing NOT gacha in the search box Claireschen Hesten Rather a$$ backwards but ok.. This is kinda like changing out the battery on a car that actually has a flat tire. lol. GATHA OWN CATEGORY!!!
  6. NEW GATCHA CATEGORY NEEDED

    Is it worth suggesting and possible to create a new category for Gatchas? Bring it up at the next round table please? Because right now, these gatcha uploads are destroying the marketplace. Is there a reason they cannot have their very own listing category? They are burying every single other category and many of these (most) of these gatchas include huge sets that also include a hat, pants, shirt, top, necklace, gun, weapon, goggles etc etc etc.. you get my point. This is a daily issue. Everyday. Not some random event. When you release a product and it is instantly buried under a mountain of Gatchas with an hour.. like by 30-50 uploads, how can anyone seeing this not think how destructive it is for the overall marketplace or for gods sake the average consumer who just wants to shop for a single hat to not have to filter through these things. I have customers who cannot find my items. I have to send them a link to it. Really so now I have to sit here and pass out links instead of working. Oh they eventually do find it on their own. And their number one response? "Oh Wait I founnnnnddd it Marx, its on Page 30 and after only 6 hours. Just wow! Gatchas are not evil. But they do need their own category. I'D be glad to even make some myself some day. But id expect to sell them under a Gatcha Category. just As i do when i sell a hat, or anything else. Back to work so I can continue to get buried.
  7. Is SLMP trying to destroy itself?

    Once your search has run, and you have returns, unless you are looking for free items, you can eliminate seeing 90% of the demo items by choosing to view items 1L and above by putting the number 1 into the first field under the Price options on the left and up to 99% of the demo's by making that number 2 instead of 1. Thats a great idea.!! Never thought of doing that.
  8. Is SLMP trying to destroy itself?

    Hi Guys!! Firstly, Thank you for responding. I wasn't sure if it was going to be even read. This is great! I didn't know there was a listing area called "Used" and I have flagged stuff before. But to be honest after 21 hours straight.. and then uploading, packaging, marketing, uploading again, and all to get to that spot where we are filling out our information and uploading our Promos, Ill see sometimes 50 items in a place that shouldn't be there and just go, yanno, I'm too dang tired... The level playing field idea sounds great on paper. And we can toss it back and forth all we want. But the numbers will eventually speak for themselves. And people will eventually see it. There has been a serious long term degradation in the amount of produced sales and quality over time. Its happened to every other similar market where caps were not put in place to protect such market. Ive been involved with 3d since 1998. I saw the birth of Poser. And watched certain sites take their first breaths. Ive also watch most of them fail and fall. Of those only 2 stand today. If were not going to love our little plant here, and water it each and every day, and make sure we groom it and care for it, it will simply wither and die. Sometimes you got to pluck a few weeds for the whole yards sake... I love this little plant we got here. But I don't see it growing and getting healthier. Just my input.
  9. Is SLMP trying to destroy itself?

    So I upload a (1) new product after nearly months, this morning at 4am pst, and wake up around noon to find it buried under 300 other products in the same category. Ive seen this trend and unregulated marketplace crap going on now for years here and just shake my head in astonishment that Lindens still, have not acted on this. It should be alarming to them that sales tank, and their Marketplace looses its robustness every week, after week, after week. I also am a member of the 3D community and have been a top merchant over there for years. Sites like Daz3d and renderosity.com also have 3D marketplaces, and yet they learned years ago that controlling how many submissions can be uploaded to Market per day, what can be uploaded, and by whom, and how often and even for how much helps to maintain a viable, robust and competitive marketplace for all to enjoy. So some interesting things to see happen would be. 1. Limit uploads per day to like say 5 of any item period. if you cant compete and make any money without doing so perhaps your in the wrong business. 2. Re-structure the marketplace to give gatcha items and resale items (items not actually created by the user) their very own Category. It's a disservice to everyone to not do so. (make people click a option box swearing they created something is how you determine this and if they lie, they get banned) 3. Start charging non creating users (resale merchants) a fee to upload. Like say 10-100l each. 4. Right now as of this post there is a Hair Merchant that has 30 active ads taken out in the Category landing page for accessories for Hats, gloves and scarves.. Kinda friggin ridiculous. How can anyone look at this and think, its even healthy or remotely compettive? Just an example. So lets say you can only buy and or have 5 active ads at any given time.. For a great example of how to run these types of markets Lindens needs to look at other similar sites like Daz and Renderosity. These sites have been around far longer. generate millions also and are still viable, healthy and robust markets today . Just urgent food for thought. I'd love to see a return to a healthy Secondlife marketplace and in world stores some day. Thanks for letting me complain!
  10. A Flag is Bad? But Rape is Good?

    Yet again.. 1.In Internet Slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chatroom, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. Your trolling Ash!! ROFL 2. Im going back to being productive and making a living. Have a good day all. Thought for the day.. WATCH OUT FOR TROLLS
  11. A Flag is Bad? But Rape is Good?

    you dont use forums... ROFl.. with 1084 Posts and alisted advisor.. uhhh. ok. Sorry.. youy are trolling
  12. A Flag is Bad? But Rape is Good?

    Ash, Go troll somewhere else. Unless your the one handling my ticket. Its your opnion that this is racist. Not mine. And you have no idea of whats really going on. So stop pretending your an authority with the final say.
  13. A Flag is Bad? But Rape is Good?

    BTw.. Ash stop putting words into my mouth. Like I said.Go back and read. And stop trolling.
  14. A Flag is Bad? But Rape is Good?

    I mean, your the one whos made this post into race. Not I. Go back and read my original post Ash. Read real carefully.
  15. A Flag is Bad? But Rape is Good?

    I wonder if Ash would be offended by such groups and organiziations as(Breeding Out the White Race).. which is a group in Sl with 269 members. How do you feel about that Ash? Oh, btw, this is what they say on their group Bio.. Strictly RP group for those white girls and fellow darkness who eroticize Interracial breeding. This is the way the white race is conquered. Not through war nor force of arms, but through the willing submission of your women. Each time a white girl takes superior African or Arab seed into her womb another white bloodline ends forever! Nice eh? rofl I myself would rather make clothes that anyone can buy. Without hypocrisy!!
