  1. There seems to be more activity on the Marketplace in general, seeing an increase in redeliveries of older items, and more activity on reviews, and tons of PMs to me for a variety of reasons. Some are just insane and have left poor reviews on products, the most on the products I had MORE features or BONUS gifts on. Believe me, you don't have time to explain to someone why they left a 1 star rating because a "light doesn't work" when they don't have Advanced Lighting on, or they don't bother reading the instructions not only included in the product box, but on every rez of the item in chat.
  2. When I used to flag gacha items as spam, it was mainly due to repeating Product Titles, that listed the same item 10 times, though the contents were supposed to be different, or they were using spamming keywords that were exactly the same as 500 other listings they had. I don't bother anymore, because my finger started getting carpal tunnel syndrome from all the abuse of market listings in general. Could be a clue as to what is happening right now, and good thing to check.
  3. Most 'harassment' is not harassment, but if you feel harassed you can block and ignore the person. If they are bypassing these with technological measures, then file a report. 99.9% of 'harassment', offensive behaviour, and disputes are easily solved with a 0.00000001 second mouse click.
  4. Political and social justice destroyed Sansar and got people banned from the platform. Everyone has a mute/ignore/block button, and if they have trouble having a civil discussion, or do not want to hear or discuss differing views - they can use them. Some users decided to report other users on Sansar to staff, because they found countering views, even random objects and names to be 'harassment', and led to bans. At least here, LL will not get involved in user to user disputes, and only with guideline and rule breakers. They haven't learned this lesson on Sansar yet though.
  5. I have direct experience with this, being a creator of original works from 3d models to music, as well as a contributor to Creative Commons where people can use my content for free. On this subject I can tell you after 20 years of it, noone cares about copyright, the guidelines, or generally doing the right thing. If you can get away with it, do it. You will make good money from doing it, and if the content is popular you will sell a bundle. The general attitude is "If you're not DMCA'd from the company, then you got nothing to worry about". Linden Labs will not even do anything about
  6. How does that relate to the post I made on the topic at hand?
  7. This is one of many examples of how ban powers can be used by unethical people to cover up their tracks. I was also 'banned' from a store for leaving a very fair and honest review, and after refusing a refund in order to take it down. After all, I wasn't doing it to get my money back, I wanted the 'software' improved so I could continue using it. They were angry with my review, and even went so far as to try to publicly shame me on their private blog that noone reads. Since then I've come to realize those who ask for feedback really only want praise and worship, and not a real honest
  8. It would not be your responsibility, as it is not LL' s responsibility to enforce such a thing. Simply put, they CAN'T. None of us can truly know if this person is licensed to use a brand, logo, trademark or 'trade dress', but it's not hard to understand they probably don't. For that reason you really can't do anything about it, at least with LL. Most licensed sellers will simply tell you "Yes, I am licensed" and are encouraged by the companies to display this fact, and tell people this fact - to create trust in buyers that they are buying from a licensed person. If you politely appr
  9. When I started listing marketplace items I made several blunders until I found this page, which has good info on how to list, and even update your listings should you need to.
  10. Yes, it can be fun to use your response to a review just to keep selling your product. However, if people are leaving 1-2 star ratings for whatever reason and the reviews are not really related to the product, but there is no subheading called "Review irrelevant or negative without explanation", you could lose business as people search for things and your product appears to be low stars - but is still a respectable product. "Don't like it" isn't really a review.. Yet it doesn't fall under any 'abusive' reports.. It's just a mysterious low-rating from who knows who - and it stays on there.
  11. How do I report this kind of listing then? It's clearly just an inappropriate driveby review with no sense behind it, but there is no category to file under.
  12. Learn Marvelous Designer for seamstress-ing. If I can be a seamstress (in Sansar), having never done it before MD, you can too. Learning mesh can be done as well. I'm sure you can do it if you really want to. The challenge is getting the information you will need to get the items into SL and making it work
  13. One quickly learns that honest and helpful reviews meant in all good spirit is usually not appreciated and some unscrupulous merchants will return that action with very hostile actions of their own. The review system is flawed anyway , as only 5 stars exist and 1 stars because people just won't rate otherwise because they are either extremely pleased, or pissed off on the other end. Most people don't rate as a rule, unless the item is free and they encourage that by rating quite a bit. Trying a demo is a good thing to do, but this isn't always true. I tried a demo of a jacket that seemed gr
