  1. Taking write-in candidates to a whole new level...
  2. The initial question here was really smart. Many people don't understand that some people are oblivious to how they act. Or they don't understand the ways that others are likely to perceive their actions. Combine someone who's oblivious to how they are perceived with somebody who's certain every slight is deliberate? That's where the really dramatic clashes begin.
  3. We're incredibly lucky that Luca chooses to invest that time here. Our marketing team has acknowledged a few valuable contributions, including from the post you quoted.
  4. For a while premium-only destinations there were open to all. Reverting to the current state was intentional and a part of testing, but it's not indicative of a broader trend on the beta grid. If anything, we'd like more users testing and filing bug reports on aditi. Closing access would hurt that cause. If anyone else wants to get on aditi and doesn't already know how, you can find more details here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Aditi
  5. Thank you! I saw the tweet. While I'm not part of marketing, I'll make sure they get a link to this discussion. In the mean time, are there examples of other companies' marketing which you think our team should look to for inspiration or positive examples? Have you seen Second Life user-generated materials where you thought to yourself, "the Linden Lab marketing team should have been the ones doing this?" Those aren't just questions for Luca. I'm sure they'd value any useful examples or inspiration.
  6. So far I’m not able to get this to come up. I’ll keep trying, but if any of you still see it would you help by reporting it here? https://about.ads.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/policies/report-spam-form
  7. Okay, these are getting fun ❤️
  8. No disagreement on anything you've said. And yes, Google warns about putting their tag manager in an iframe: But between you and me, sometimes that's a feature. Even where there is a business need for these tags to be present (we don't add them on this particular page ourselves), it can be helpful to minimize the granularity of information provided.
  9. Hey, Animats. This is a good area for us to investigate. As a rule, we tightly control which partners are in a position to access personal information. I can count those vendors without running out of fingers, and none of them are marketers. You may have seen that we make liberal use of iframes to limit the scope of DOM access on any page where PII, payment data, email addresses, etc are presented. This means that even if a request shows up in the network log, it doesn't mean the third party was in a position to access the contents of the page. A hypothetical bad actor who gained control of th
  10. This is an interesting request/proposal. I suspect payment info on file isn't a terribly strong indicator of the quality of messages coming from an account. But there's value in letting individuals have the tools to make their own choices. For example, the more heavily griefed sandboxes have had good success with requiring manual invites for people without payment info on file. If you had the ability to restrict IMs from users without PIOF, how would you want that to work if you had sent an IM to the non-PIOF person first? Or if you had sent them L$ or inventory? Would that exempt th
  11. I didn't want to guess wrong on your tweed jacket size. But no, we're in a category of business that extends well beyond the IRS. It would be wonderful if it were still that simple! I'll ask our own beloved tweed team if they'd ever consider blogging about the fun they have.
  12. I laughed. But this is largely true. In the short term, Tilia is merely us formalizing an internal segmentation that already existed. The additional paperwork around cashouts is stuff that was coming whether we put a new name on the group or not. We can't control what regulators require of us. In the long term, we want to undertake some significant projects in the payments and security space which will be expensive to implement. Income from SL alone wouldn't pay for these projects without our absorbing some big losses. To address this, we aim to offer Tilia services to additional com
  13. This is a lot less exciting than some of you are making it out to be. This is not related to yesterday's grid problems. There are cases where, by design, an account may be deleted and a generic template is inserted in its place. It's mostly filled with all-zero values or some other defaults that make the server happy. For example, if an EU resident requested that personal information were deleted from his or her account, this would be one of the many changes made. That said... it's sorely tempting to change the generic "Redacted" surname to "Magellan" now.
  14. One other quick note: Please understand that my warning above is about the program that alters users' email addresses and passwords. This was not a warning about Marine Kelley's viewer or RLV in general. I have been impressed at the care that the RLV and RLVa developers have taken to balance role play and user safety. These viewer developers have also been attentive when we've had specific concerns in the past. There is a good reason that they can operate in the open and that they don't have to distribute their programs on anonymous file sharing sites. If you're ever in doubt about w
