  1. Pierre Ceriano asked: So today I'd like to know everyone's opinion : What is your position on the current revision of the TOS ? See: New Terms of Service for SL--grants LL the right to sell your work?I have seen considerable interest in this subject; the page ciited has over 9000 visits since 9/30/13. I have been updating it with new information and new links. I have posted more than 10 additional articles on the subject and these are also getting attention. My position is unchanged except for a an overoptimistic post of 10/28/13: Linden Lab is reworking the terms of service (TOS). Exchange of lettersAfter 2.5 months, I am not confident that LL really intends to make any significant change. ------------------------ What changes would you make to the TOS ? See What changes does UCCSL want in the TOS? This is my attempt to state the changes I think are needed. Not all of these are in the UCCSL letters. --------------- What other domains would you like to make proposals and what proposals ? Sry I don'[t understand what you mean by domains. What is your position regarding the future of UCCSL ? I thiink UCCSL may perform a useful service if it can organize the varied creators in Second Life into a united collection of guilds. I think, however, that the future of such an organizaton extends beyond Second Life into a more comprehensive collection of virtual worlds that includes the Hypergrid. I do not see UCCSL as playing a major role in getting important changes in the TOS. But I don't think any other organization will be more effecttive. If LL could have easily accepted the desired changes, it would have already done so. My video operations are my only work that would be affected by the TOS, and I have already moved the operations that would be affected to Kitely, where I also have much more space at a fraction of the cost.. Regarding TOS, I am posting a series of articles, based on the expectation that LL will make no substantive changes in current TOS. These articles will consder possible actions by each major type of content creator. Here is the first article: If you want to sell exclusive rights to your writing, don't put it on notecards in SL Selby Evans
  2. Here is an article about handling problems like those you have been having: Login fails? Lots of logouts? Summary Your problem sounds like a connection problem, but that could be in your router or modem as well as in your ISP. I have seen router failures give problems like that and give no problem with running a browser, (SL uses ports that browsers do not use.) You can test that issue by connecting your computer directly to the modem--be sure your computer Firewall is working first. TKR
