    Inventory catastrophe with Firestorm

    I suggest trying: https://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_missing_inventory, especially "Method 2 - Inventory Copy from SL Viewer" (a bit over halfway down the page) since your inventory appears to be intact in the SL Viewer.

    Recurring things in Second Life

    The avatar was a project ... after reading about the fun of working with mesh bodies in the forums I figured I'd try it. My female alt got a body first (the selection for guys wasn't so hot at the time), then I got one. I ended up with two hairs that I wasn't terribly fond of because that's what was available and my prim hair was incredibly expensive in terms of complexity. Anyway, I still have the system head & it's likely to stay that way. I'd taken pictures with standard me and with a Cthulhu head for a post awhile ago. I wanted to use the Cthulhu head for the forum picture but wasn't having much luck fitting it into the tight space, so I used the normal-looking picture. I've been too lazy to come up with another. I have mostly non-human avatars, but they tend to put the nonprofit people off for some reason (especially the snake avatar), so I end up human. Ah, Maddy just posted. Yes, I have the male version of the little devil avatar. I wasn't about to give her one without a way to fight back.

    Recurring things in Second Life

    I was pointing out that there are exceptions to what sounded to me like an absolute rule. If all of SL was canvassed we might find that over half of the residents don't care about the visual appearance of avatars, making your point invalid (or at least not general). There's no way to canvas SL, and even LL has no clue what all the uses for SL are. Therefore I can't say, but I doubt the survey would invalidate your point.

    Recurring things in Second Life

    Yes I would. I got into SL to create things. At the time I had no intention of talking with anyone. I avoided contact (and still do for the most part). SL is a creation platform to me.

    Second Life on Steam?

    LL is definitely trying to affect retention in SL. In Sansar LL's customers are the experience owners. End users are experience owner's customers.

    Second Life on Steam?

    LL said Sansar is meant to be the Wordpress of VR. They'd provide the back end and people would create VR worlds using it. The experience owners would do the advertising, supply the URL to their experience on the experience owner's website, etc. LL said owners can charge people to enter their experiences, can add plug-ins to the viewer to customize the viewer to an experience, specify the avatars used in an experience (my favorite part ... everyone's a penguin). Back in 2014 Ebbe was asked about registration ... he thought experience owners could provide their own registration system, but perhaps LL could provide a default one. The marketplace was spoken of as a source for experience owners to get things to place in experiences. LL is not in the end-user business with Sansar. I think user support gives them enough headaches in SL.

    Second Life on Steam?

    The Lab has nothing to do with retaining players. Linden Lab provides the framework; it's up to the experience owners to create something that will keep players coming back to their experiences.

    Second Life on Steam?

    Sansar was placed on Steam because Steam has a concentration of goggle users. There's no reason for SL to be anywhere near Steam. I doubt being on Steam will be good for Sansar's reputation. Sansar's not ready for it.

    An 'honest' view of SL

    Are lions an endangered species in SL? Now that it's winter it has become quite cold on my region. A lion-skin coat would help a lot. The mane could be used as a hood.

    Where are all my friends? Come on in and lets get comfy by the fire!

    Birch beer hasn't been mentioned yet. It's made using herbal extracts and birch bark. It tastes somewhat like sarsaparilla and root beer. I suspect the similarity increased once manufacturers started using artificial flavoring.

    How does your avatar look today ?

    EEP is Environment Enhancements Project, if I recall correctly. It could be called the replacement for Windlight or Windlight on steroids.

    Get a portrait of yourself!

    OK, I'll play. One of my better portraits and the result: However, the AI couldn't figure out what to make of this. It claimed there was no face found.

    No. Process credit isn't tied to premium membership.

    Debug tab to get info on Top Scripts

    In the menu: World->Region Details (or Alt+R). In the window that comes up, find the Debug tab and the Get Top Scripts... button.

    Hide or change the birth date in SL

    Shhh! Young whippersnappers making all this racket when I'm trying to take my nap. Back in my day... 👴😴 I don't see the problem with having your rez date displayed. I doubt LL would consider adding the ability to hide it. They've got much better things to work on (EEP, for example).
