  1. Hi Cheri and Freya, I am Australian and can see why our indigenous people took this stance. Ayres Rock is very significant to them, both culturally and spiritually. The proposed book in question could be likened to someone taking pics of their teddy bear, say, on a Catholic altar or in silly places in a Jewish synagog. Very disrespectful! To non-indigenous people Uluru is just a big rock, so I can see how the problem arose. Anyhow, I for one am glad it was banned. As a brief update on my initial query, my friend has decided to progress with his book (not hospital themed), so it will be interesting to see what he comes up with Thanks again to everyone for their help and advice on this matter. Cheers! C
  2. I am having a LOT of problems with SL at the moment. It reminds me of lag from the old days, but even worse. Are others experiencing this too? I want to check that it's not just me. I looked on the Grid Status thingy and no probs are logged there.
  3. Many thanks for the comprehensive, very helpful and speedy replies! It seems we were right and images of 3D assets will not impact copyright. Also the suggestion to add credits was a great idea. Not sure if my friend will progress his idea (btw he was not building a hospital, I just used that as an example), but it's best to be sure about the legal side of things just in case. Thanks again!

  4. Hi there, Here's a bit of a copyright brain teaser for any one who knows about this stuff. A friend of mine asked me this the other day ... If an avatar builds an environment on their own land (let's say a hospital) and uses other avatars' 3D assets to do so (stuff bought from marketplace like hospital beds), can they take photos of this environment and use the images as part of a book they intend to publish and sell in real life, i.e. a medical text book in digital and paper formats? Given it is only images of the original creators' assets that would be used, not the assets themselves, would this breach copyright? It would also be interesting to know if copyright would be breached given the same scenario, except the published book is free in real life, not sold. In trying to work this out I looked at LL's snapshot and machinima policy. If I am reading this correctly, it seems using photos of assets would be acceptable. But I am not a lawyer so perhaps I'm missing something and there's more my friend needs to know. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Cheers, C :)
  5. Hi there, I am one of a small team who have just about finished creating a really crazy art sim called Funky Junk (LEA22). It's supported by a blog that's both fun and informative - the two go hand in hand. Although we are not officially open yet, the sim is already proving to be popular. We were hoping someone with creative flair and stong machinima expertise might like to capture the sim on film for us. Funky Junk Blog SLurl An example of a Funky Junk "family" Please read the blog and visit the sim and, if you'd like to assist, send a notecard to ElizabethWallington Resident, our Events Manager.and/or to me. It would be great if you'd include a link or two to machinima you have made in the notecard. Looking forward to hearing from you! cheers C :)
  6. Hi there,  Funky Junk (LEA22) is a new Linden Endowment of the Arts sim. It has a cool, trashy Club perched high on a hill top. We are still under construction but almost done and hope to open in about 2 weeks. We are currently seeking to employ Club staff and artists. If you are interested, please fill in our online Job Application Form. We look forward to hearing from you! C :)
  7. Same problem here, but I'm now getting an Unplanned Maintenence notice from Firestorm. And yep, I see nothing on the Grid Staus page yet.
  8. It's that spoooky time of the year again. What freaky, creepy stuff have you set up on your land? Post your pics here and include a SLurl if you'd like people to be able to visit. Happy snapping! The pic below shows part of my graveyard this year. If visiting, please set to midnight for best effect. Here's the SLurl http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pixel%20Bits/245/215/22
  9. Hi there, If you are very experienced at setting up couples poses/anims in beds, cuddle rugs, sofas, etc using Avsitter and would like to make a few L$'s I'd really like to hear from you. Samples of your own work to demonstrate competence will be required. If interested, please send me a note card headed Couples Poses [your SL login name]. In the note please briefly outline why you feel you are a suitable candidate. Looking forward to hearing from you! C :)
  10. Hi, I currently have Windows 7 on my PC and 8 on my lappy. Windows has an offer atm to book in for a free upgrade to windows 10. Does anyone know if Win10 will be compatible with SL and SL viewers? I am concerned about being an early-adopter in case there are problems, but a free windows upgrade is very tempting. Windows does state they'll enable a roll-back so if the upgrade is an issue I can go back to my earlier version. Any advice would be appreciated. C
  11. I am creating a 50's diner. I have added a jukebox that came with preinstalled radio stations (via a menu driven by a notecard list). My problem is none of the current stations are specifically 1950's or jukebox-ish. I'd like to add a few stations that match the theme to the top of the notecard list. I am looking for the URLs that work in SL, not just the radio station's general URL. Any ideas? Thanks! C

  13. If you've not yet visited Daydream Island it's really worth seeing. As this video shows, there's lots to do and see and it's open to everyone. In addition to being an awesome sim, Daydream has an active group with over 2000 members. Explore; meet people; dance; date; visit the secret caves; check out the castle; swim; try out some fun, weird gadgets or visit the haunted dungeon. SLurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Daydream%20Island/63/166/203 Enjoy!
  14. Hi there, My friend needs an avatar made that looks exactly like him irl. A machinima of this avi talking (using his own voice) will be filmed and used in an online presentation. If you are an experienced avatar creator who can make a quality skin and shape that's super close to the real thing, please get in touch! Examples of other "real" avi creations preferred, but not mandatory. The avi does not have to be mesh, it just has to look real. Or if you know of someone who is very cabable and may be able to help, please post their name so we can make contact. Many thanks! C We've all seen this LL advert. This is the avatar creation service my friend is looking for - a duplicate "him" in SL
  15. sorry, I have never heard of this problem before. not sure what to suggest
  16. to clarify, are you saying your avatar is wearing 200 differenty hair styles at the same time?!

  18. I am not sure if you see Marketplace like the image below, but I do. I can't shop either. There's no website formatting and no images on the site at all, except some advertising junk that looks like it's supposed to be an Ad banner. Let's hope it's a technical glitch that LL will fix soon.
  19. Hi there, I was wondering if there's a way to automatically feed SL group notices/posts (assuming I own the group) to my own blog or website. And, if so, how do I do it? thanks, C
  20. Guys, I worked this out. It was my viewer media preferences I had to change. All fine!
  21. Hi there, I've added media (a website) to one face of a prim as part of a sign. It looks gr8 and all is fine until I leave the sim. When I return, the prim has always reverted to the standard ply wood texture and I have to reset the media. The prim I am referring to is positioned behind another prim with an alpha layer. The alpha part is a cut out of a computer screen to give the impression that the image of the computer has a "live" display of the website on it. Could this be part of the issue? I'd love to make this interactive - it's much better than a static sign. Any ideas on why this is happening and how to make the media "stick" would be greatly appreciated. Cheers! C
  22. Hi there, I'd like to suggest Daydream Island. It's one of the most peaceful, beautiful and romantic locations in SL. It has been created for couples seeking an idyllic setting for romance, or for people wanting to make new friends from around the globe. Daydream Island is well established and very friendly, with an active SL group of around 2000 residents. We may be having a sim-wide Hunt this year (yet to be confirmed) but if not we always have romantic Valentines gifts for all sim visitors from 1st to 14th Feb. Daydream Island is listed on SL's Destination Guide under Romance > Romantic spots and here's the SLurl. Cheers!
