  1. What a load of crapola .... even rather fascist ... not going to happen in an open/free market & just as well .... it would kill the economy of SL
  2. Sadly I seem to be one for whoms things have deteriorated Texture loading & sculpty loading can take 25 minutes - it is making work a total pain in the proverbial it is very inconsistent = sometimes it is all good I am crashing as if I was in a demolition derby = often & hard I seriously look forward to experiencing the improvements Western Australia based Mostly using Singularity
  3. I would think that promoting discovery of the adult mainland ( I think it is still named Zindra ??) would be much better served by naming the sandbox - Adult Mainland Zindra Sandbox or some variation thereof The marketing done based on 'Vortex' is recoverable if that element of the name is removed The marketing done based on the name Zindra is not If the term Zindra is going to continually be devalued as a marketing name & tool ... do it properly ! Rename the continent & engage in a fresh & major marketing initiative based on the new name. Rather than derail this thread, I intend to start another thread addressing the devaluing of the name Zindra by what I consider misuse of groups using that name & purporting to speak for Zindra & Zindrans.
  4. A belated but very big thank you to Serjourn Daxter & the team of the Adult Hub group for the expeditious way that you dealt with this issue. You have shown that you are prepared to work for the "common good" & set an example that others would do well to try & follow. I wish you all the very best in your growth & development ... you have the potential to re-energise Adult SL. Very big & belated thank yous to all who made input into this thread & discussion ... If we do not speak we can not expect to be heard Zan
  5. With all due respect Imnotgoing .... When I try & promote Adult Mainland ... it is Zindra that I am promoting ... not any one of its 358 sims
  6. Potted history • LL create a continent named Zindra to house all mainland adult activities • Users conducting adult activities on old mainland either relocate or are 'migrated' to Zindra • the continent grows to some 358 sims ... all of which are Zindra including 1 sim named Zindra • People spend 2 years working & investing in Zindra ... promoting & marketing ZINDRA as the ADULT continent Some one in Linden Lab has right royally messed up & has allowed the use of the name ZINDRA by a private estate Zindra West, Zindra South, Zindra East, Zindra North & Zindra Prime are new private estate sims & are all owned by "Adult Hub" group ... they are not connected to, nor have anything to do with the Adult mainland continent called Zindra As one who has invested substantially in the REAL ZINDRA Mainland, both time & money I am outraged by this mismanagement I wonder what may follow if this is not rectified .... the slow death of mainland ??
  7. I am amazed that there is such a contradiction in publicly stated policy ... aka .. the OFFICIAL Wiki /KB & the actual practice of implementing this new approach ... it does make me think of kids playing cowboys & Indians in the sandbox. Come on LL .... you test your credibility here .... even with a credulous customer base. In response to Chaos Moir: Yes !! ... some of the scraps of abandoned land that are being set for sale are showing a blatant disregard for land care ,,,, even if some of the "parcels" on offer are interesting works of land art . & Why haven't adjoining parcels been joined to best advantage ?? Why haven't encroaching objects been removed ?? Please set an example LL ... or do you want to deal with the increasing chaos that will result if people think that if LL can do it ... then so can we !!! In response to Sky Quintessa Yes ... in the past 24 hours, the bottom end of both the General & Moderate land sales markets have dropped 40%. How that impacts on people/customers who have invested capital in land is seriously going to impact on the whole SL economy In response to Blondin as representing LL Personally, I think it is great if end users have the opportunity to buy abandoned land, but what LL have implemented is • a contradiction (Official Wiki vs practice) • an invitation to the operators of buying bots to increase their profits at the expense of real people • a serous suppressor of the land markets ( an economy with falling land prices will always get worse as it erodes confidence & the SL economy is hurting badly already) • the land team does need to overview this automated process & join & clean up parcels so that the rubbish cutting that is often associated with abandoning is not perpetuated ... all that effort to minimise micro parcels could just be undone (in fact ... some of the parcels on offer fit very well within the criteria for an AR on micro parcels & obstructive cuts) mm ... can't remember other posts warranting a response atm ... remembers there is always edit .... grins & wishes all SL well

Or is L$1/sqm still too high for them now? Land bots tend to wait for under 0.5L/sqm these days. Waves Two issues 1 - Land bots are keyed into the search results from the wiki link Blondin posted - : Purchasing Abandoned Mainland " These parcels can be found my visiting a region and looking at parcel descriptions. They will also highlight on the map as land for sale. These parcels are not listed in Search." So .... hopefully the land bots will not have access to the data & their eyes are notoriously bad 2 - Land bots are usually set to buy 2 points or more under the bottom price so ... if the bottom price is $1L per metre .... some will be buying at 0.8 L/metre (Moderate & PG) In Adult ... atm they will pay at least 3,5 to 4 >L per metre, But a operator who is on top of the game is always adjusting buy rate settings Personally .... I would like to pull the plug on them & have land dealt with by flesh & blood pixilar representations
  9. Reaffirms my welcome to Rod & reaffirms all this great constructive input .... even from the negators & argumentative constructive conclusions can be drawn. Just happened to be looking at a SL Elder's profile (early '06 by my criteria) & could not resist quoting this which she has quoted => "Tell me one last thing," said Harry. "Is this real, or has this been happening inside my head?" "Of course it's happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?" ----Professor Dumbledore SL is real The people using it are real The data & pixels are real There are many issues to be fixed to make this Virtual Reality more functional .... but what we have is totally amazing & wonderful .... there are so many here who want it to grow & who have/are prepared (to) put themselves on the line to help that happen. The Lab should find meaningful ways (for all parties) of utilising this pool of experience, skill & willingness ... 1 small example:- offer some basic governance powers to some well vetted, experienced & tested residents, people who spend a lot of time inworld & travel within ... that back log of basic AR s would melt away For the immediate power freakout reactionaries - removal of such powers for the odd person abusing them could be very simple .... smiles thinking of a song line = "I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot the deputy" /me Stops rabbiting on & gets back to my 14 hour SL working day
  10. WELCOME Rod I wrote a thought out post ... to have it eaten by a website error message ... grrrs This happens too often !! Yet something else that needs serious fixing (Am trying to train myself to copy & paste everything I write on SL website ... as a back up) Hopefully I will find the time to rethink & re-write & the finishing WELCOME to OUR world
  11. There is a bug as well that is not authenticating the buyer's account ... no matter what viewer you use ... go to the pjira https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-23258 & add your voice if you have been effected
