  1. The group shows up because LL broke some things a few years ago. The old group invitation message had everything needed to do a mute nice and easy. Then a few years ago, a bunch of message types including invitations were consolidated into the tragically named ImprovedInstantMessage. LL goofed, and forgot to replicate all the information that was in the old "unimproved" messages. That's what they need to fix now.
  2. Do your homework. Most of the viewer mute fixes have come thru Jonathan Yap, he has a really good record of getting things done with LL. If he's working on it, it will get done sooner or later. Contrary to what you said, group invitations do in fact come straight from avatars, every bit as much as instant messages or chat do. The server is the transport medium and checks the invitation privileges, but you were totally, completely uttely wrong when you wrote up in this post that "although the invite is initiated by the person because it comes from the Group". That's just plain false. Groups
  3. Group invites come straight from avatars, they can come from anywhere on the grid, just like instant messages. One of the community viewer developers is working on it, watch VWR-11178 for progress.

There is a little industry of DMCA "bounty hunters" who make deals with IP owners up front, to act as their authorized agents to send in takedown notices. They contract to get a bounty for the takedowns. There are little firms that make full time efforts on places like Google, but SL doesn't get much attention. Someone oughtta grab that. If ow

  6. LL doesn't do refunds if you buy junk from other users, so you got an expensive lesson. At least it wasn't super expensive. I know what happened from that description, and some other people who bought those, and they felt ripped off too. So you see avatars for sale and they look like they could have walked right out of a video game. That's because 99.999999% of the time they did, even if they say "inspired by". They won't have any removable parts that didn't need to be that way in the games they were ripped from, and they have textures optimized for that too, not good for dressing up an avat
  7. One trick is start with a filler animation with the joints forced to priority 6, then trigger and stop the rest of the animations running at a lower priority while that is running. That hides the preloading and makes it look like you know magic.
  8. Do you have an old plain wired keyboard and mouse sitting around anywhere, or could borrow them from another PC to test those?

So it's a Linden Home? That is kind of good, that means you aren't having some kind of problem with deeded land. On these parcels only the avatar who shows up as the owner can abandon it, even if it is set to a group. If the names match and it still won't unstick then you will have to do a support ticket.

Need this fixed so I can downgrade otherwise I'll just delete my account If you're using Firestorm they changed their menu to be "World -> Parcel Details". The dialog's the same and the button will be down on the bottom. Sometimes this messes up when you try to click on the ground, it works better if you stand on your land and grab it off the menu. This one's not clickable because I'm not the governor and didn't want to break anything on real land!!
  11. LL invested in a brand new virtual world that is being built by SL's founder. They are looking for alpha testers. http://highfidelity.io/alpha
  12. Nah, they aren't really trying to hide. A few months ago the servers got more aggressive about sending information that was really in the camera's view, that is part of the "project interesting" that LL just blogged about. Most of that really happened on the server, the new viewer has the final touches. Long range avatar watching depended on the server being sloppy, so that doesn't work as well as it used to, is all. Those viewers could fiddle with some things to make it work better again. It they could scoot the camera to near the avatar's mini map location, that would wake up the interest
  13. I'll take a guess from the colors that this is on Singularity? All the viewer radars work a little different. For Singularity red=in regular chat range, yellow=in shout range, green=outside chat/shout but cammable, black=not cammable. An avatar can only be cammable if the server put it in your interest list. This is a little more complicated than draw distance, the server only uses that for a starting point to figure out what it shows you. Your camera direction right now and in the last while counts too. If you spin around a little, that can make more avatars viewable. If you're near a regio
  14. I can see from a common group that last login was 2013/09/24, and I know that feel. They probably got tied up in some real life stuff.

I think that's probably good, especially for custom work, because there is no way LL could have all the evidence for work done outside the grid.
