  1. Alpha games on Steam work the same as with any software in Alpha stages. Means they are a very early version of a software product that may not contain all of the features that are contained in the final version. What you described as standard software license purchases sounds more like a version of the chash-grab subscription model you just said it was not. It certainly doesn't sound like any license to any software I have ever purchased. In the case of TMP as stated in their own description that I read when visiting their store the Legacy is an updated version of the original TMP mesh body. Upgrade pricing as you call it is a shady tactic to say the least used by companies with bad business practices. Which is probably why I personally never have had any software agreement even remotely close to what you just described because I tend to stay clear of those. You absolutely should get that upgrade for free because a purchase is made on the software and should not at all be limited to and restricted by version number. I have never not even once ever had to pay for an upgraded version of any software I have ever personally bought and paid for. I ain't about to ever start either. lol When it comes to products on SL that same rule applies from RL too. I certainly wouldn't repurchase a product I already paid for in order to receive an update. lol Just not ever gonna happen. lol You made a good point on all of the above. We certainly have had different opinions on which SL viewers work best for us so there is a lot to be said for personal preference. lol
  2. So let me ask you this. Food for thought. Using that logic and sticking with it. By that logic if that were applied to an RL situation such as Alpha games on Steam which many have been retweaked and redone to become something entirely new they by rights should be allowed to charge their entire customer base again for the same game purchased? Because when you take that logic and apply it to SL and TMP in this case your basically saying the exact same thing. Is that your entire argument? Wait a minute slow down girlfriend. In fact let's come to a screeching halt. lol I am just saying and all I am saying is I absolutely would not class Maitreya as a low quality mesh body. I don't want you to feel like I am debating what your saying. I don't really have an issue with anything else you've said in that regards. I've just seen some really nicely done Maitreya bodies that I would consider to be high quality avatars. If it was low quality then it wouldn't be in the top five most used mesh bodies list for ladies to use. That's all I am really saying.
  3. In my book even if it's an alt it's still cheating. I have had no problems cutting someone loose for making that mistake with me in the past. lol More often then not most people don't want to be honest and upfront about what they really want to do. If they were there would be less problems and certainly no cases of jealousy and drama. It's the lying and sneaking around that creates all that in the first place. Now me, I exercise the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid.) method of relationships in SL when it comes to that. First if your going to lie then at the very least have dragons in the story. lol Second accept the bye. No need to explain. Just pack your crap and go. lol I personally been rocking a monogamous relationship on SL and we got no jealousy and we got no drama. We simply just do not create it. We both do as we please and being married on SL certainly does not hinder that in any type of way, shape, or form. So I'd say it depends on what the person wants to do in their SL as to whether or not monogamy would be a good fit for them or not. Regardless of the type of relationship anyone has I always think honesty is the best policy where emotions are concerned. At the end of the day regardless of the type of SL someone has there is no real reason for anyone to get unnecessarily hurt. We are all here to have fun and enjoy ourselves anyway.
  4. Ecco perchΓ© non hanno bisogno dei nostri soldi. lol
  5. Not gonna lie I read that first question and asked myself did she seriously just ask me that? Really? lol Let me break it down to you like this. If I create a product and you paid me for it. If I update and make upgrades to that product that would be pretty messed up for me to expect you to pay me twice for it. I been noticing that end of life trend that's started on SL with content creators recently with their products. Free for vendors lifetime? Absolutely if your still operating a business and you push a product out and thousands of other people created mass loads of content circled around your product why would you not? It makes no type of sense not to. It's just not smart business at all not to. Maybe it makes sense to you, but to me I personally think it's stupid because vendors loose business more often then not for having that attitude. Speaking for me personally I have cut loose every single vendor including TMP that has either cut support or played that end of life card. I kick them to the curb. I find a candy store that offers better candy. So I don't loose any sleep myself over it. Most people I have personally talked to have pretty much the same attitude I do about it. Perfect example. I stopped going to Fallen Gods. The creator discontinued a skin because it was not up to his current level the rest of his products were on. It was a well sought after skin and people still asked for it. Made no sense to shelve it. Even refused offers made to purchase it even though it was not updated. To me I find if your that ***** and unwilling to exercise what we call guaranteeing customer satisfaction then I'll find someone who will. Point blank. End of story. It's nice. It's neat. Wrap it up in a little box. So for every content creator who does not stand by their product and/or expects you to pay for an upgrade to an already existing product you already paid them money for can NOT seriously think they will retain any of their original customer base. That is just shady business practices and I don't support that. Nobody with any type of intelligence or common sense would. Then again this is SL, so um, yaaaa. Nuff said. Lmao!!!!🀣 The only thing that photo proves is that someone needs to edit their shape. Lmao!!!!πŸ˜‚
  6. They don't have a new player or introductory section of the forums anymore mate. Think they did away with that years ago. It would actually help people new find their way to answers a lot easier if there was. A lot of people don't know what forum is the appropriate forum for some of the questions they wants to ask sometimes. My advice would be as far as basic general questions are concerned just post in the general section and go from there. They'll be all right even if it ain't the right forum. lol Hope this helps and good luck.
  7. Not sure what Maitreya body you looked at, but I would absolutely NOT put low quality and Maitreya in the same sentence. It is by far not a low quality mesh body. I'm just saying. Lmao!!!!😎
  8. I actually find it interesting and a complete joke they don't offer a free upgrade for the legacy body since it's suppose to be the upgraded version of the original. I have the original TMP mesh body myself and went to their store recently to grab some clothes and when I looked at the upgrade I noticed they wanted to charge for it. lol They pulled every item for the original body as there is no clothing store up anymore or wasn't at the time I went and want to charge for an update. I mean really? Seriously who does that and actually thinks they'll retain customers? Lmao!!!!
  9. I don't care what ya call me. Just don't call me late for dinner. lol 😜
  10. I probably would if the same thing was said to me. Only difference is I may have followed it up with a have a nice day or a you have fun with that comment and walked away. lol I can't speak for everyone else, but I don't say anything in one place that I wouldn't in another. If I say it on the forums then I'll say it in SL. If I say it to you on the internet then I'll say it directly to you in RL as well too. To me it's the same concept as don't say anything about someone you wouldn't have the guts to say directly to their face. So I am pretty straight forward like that.
  11. I am confused actually how you came to that conclusion mate. Maybe it's my fault. The story I shared I just shared for a laugh because it was a funny situation I had with mine. Beth's experiences she mentioned reminded me of it I didn't really mean for that to be associated with anything in particular. As far as the topic itself I tried to elaborate a bit more clearly in one of my last replies where I personally was coming from on it. My kids are grown now so if they ever came to SL my attitude is so be it. It'll be because it's something they took an interest in and looked up on their own. Not because I recommended it to them. That's just me though. Am I over protective? Ya. Probably. It is what it is though. lol On the last part of what you said I don't think anyone is freaking out about it per say. People just feel the way they feel. Obviously everybody didn't agree in this thread and that's ok too. I do want to point out though. Ya ever since they merged grids the age limit was changed to 16, but I remember back in the day when there was a lot of people that got banned prior to that left, right, and center and entire sims shut down over kids under 18 being on them. That's just for them being on the sim. Period. And anyone on the sim copping a ban to boot. So really if someone did freak out I honestly can't blame them. People spend way entirely to much money on this platform just to have it shut down and flushed down the toilet because of something out of their control. So to be frankly honest I wouldn't blame anybody if they did. Especially if they were around when all that happened and went down. Maybe they mellowed out now days because you don't hear about it hardly anymore, but back in the day LL would shoot first and then ask questions later. If they even bother to do that much at all. Which usually they don't. So ya gotta wonder if any of them people ever got their accounts and stuff back. I seriously doubt it, but at the end of the day it's better to be safe then sorry.
  12. Thank you so much for helping me prove my point. So awesome of you to do. Lmao!!!! 😎
  13. Your very welcome. Why wouldn't she have one? lol She didn't need it for me if that's what your asking. lol I stays out the dog house. Lmao!!!!😜😁 To answer you though I just have known her to be more understanding and forgiving with people for things that anyone else would have told them to go kick rocks for. So I have to give her props because she always tries to look for the best in side in people. Where as me I am more likely depending on the person going to look at them and go all right what's your angle now? lol 😎
  14. Well I went there in the middle of the day too just to see it for myself when I first heard about it. They had a crowd of about 16 people and the stream was more hip hop then anything else at the time. lol It definitely wasn't screaming Sinatra. lol Franks Elite had about 32 people and climbing as I tped in. So I doubt this new club is hurting their business any.😎
  15. In my own personal opinion I find that the discussions in the forums while I have had some really decent ones do have a bit more of a better chance of becoming polluted with toxic and rude comments which is why I don't frequent them very often except in short bursts if at all. I mean you could say I like vanilla ice cream and five other die hard chocolate ice cream fans may have a go at you about it. lol I definitely have better intellectual conversations just simply meeting people in world in SL. So for me personally I would have to say in SL hands down is the better experience. I actually have a gesture we all used to use back from my boxing days after a match that says that. lol It does a bow too so your welcome to it if ya want it. Feel free to ht me up in world next time your on and I'll hook you up. lol
  16. What does my SL relationship mean to me? Well it means having a best friend I am completely loyal to and do just about everything with. Not just in SL, but in other platforms as well too. We do a lot of gaming outside of SL together. Yes there are the romantic aspects and love and all that mushy fun stuff. Honestly if it wasn't for our geographical locations and some RL obligations we'd have probably hooked up in RL already by now being perfectly honest. It means also running the risk one day things may not work out the way we hoped. I may wake up one day and she met someone else in RL and that's the risk we take. The reward for it regardless of what the future holds and how it works out is I got to create some really great memories and moments with a person who of all the souls I have ever encountered has the biggest and most forgiving heart of them all. She certainly could see past all my BS and rough edges. lol I have a saying I like to use that goes like this. Even the sun shines on a dog's arse some days. Well the day we met the sun was shining real darn bright then. I had to wear shades even. lol 😎
  17. I do got to add this in for laughs though. I don't care if anyone thinks I am wrong for this because it was just to funny. lol While my kids could and would discuss sexuality with me I was not the type of parent that would freely let my kids have or have access to the dirty mags. and movies collection and things of that sort. No they had to hide their filth just like I had to hide mine when I was a kid. Those are the rules because I was that type of Dad that if you didn't have enough common sense to hide your stuff out of plain view or where I couldn't find it then I would be funny and take clear super glue and spot the pages and stick them together. Then I'd be like oh btw son I sorries I borrowed your mag. earlier and I don't know why, but some of the pages seem to be sticky now. You might want to find a better hiding spot in the future. lol Not even a minute later he'd be coming back out with it holding it up with two fingers saying you can have it Pops. Just keep it. I'm good. Lmao!!!!πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚πŸ€£
  18. Well in fairness you probably forgot while in the middle of jumping all over my case. lol So we can say it's my fault if you want to. lol Looking back prior to our tiff I should have asked you that myself before we even got started on the conversation we had so I understood your mind set a little more before we engaged in that whole conversation. It may have been a lot more productive had I done so or had you started off with this prior to engaging in the rest of the conversation that took place. So I wanted to apologize to you for my part on it and say that I am sorry that I did not. I also wanted to say thank you for sharing your insights as well too. As far as everything else you just said whether I agree or disagree is irrelevant. It's neither here nor there. About to pay you a compliment now so I hope your sitting down. lol I merely just wanted to say that you said it well.
  19. I'll definitely have to go check them out then. I recognize two of those names I completely forgot about. Adam Edelstein I think had a few outfits on market I thought were really well done and L&B I completely forgot sold men's clothing wear. I always think of jewelry when that store pops in to my head. I just looked up Deadwool though and I owe one big time mate. They had a outfit very decently priced I might add called Hart vest - antracite and a few others in that line which almost mirrors a few system versions I have of that exact same outfit. So now it's time for an upgrade. lol Thank you so much for this. I really appreciate it mate.
  20. Thanks mate. You too. You got me. I gotta give it to ya. I walked right in to that. Lmao!!!!
  21. Most really decent quality stuff on SL usually is expensive though mate. I didn't think it was 5 years since they last updated though. I didn't realize it had been that long. I think I bought my last suit there probably 2 or 3 years back at most my last visit there shopping. I've taken a few people there off and on since then and I've just not found any place that sells better quality suits mate. Where do you buy yours at if you don't mind me asking? What would you recommend? I am definitely open to suggestions brother. Thanks in advance.
  22. That's why I am selective on who I spend a lot of time with or allow to get close to me anymore. I mean I am easy to make friends with, but hard to get close to. Very few people actually know the real me. Most only get to see what I let them see. I usually expect the worst so I am not disappointed, but hope for the best because I'd like to see the best come out in people. I won't say I have exactly the right attitude about it, but at the end of the day people do what they want to do. The only real choice we have is how we let if effect us. They didn't say that. I phrased it that way. When you get a job and your told your hired before your even really get started let alone done selling yourself during the interview process then you pretty much impressed your employer and that my friend is what I call having them at hello. Lmao!!!!😎
  23. I actually can relate. The one time I would actually class as ghosting as they call it happened with two people I worked with and actually was stupid enough to have thought were my friends. I was part of a tribute band called Thunder Rock Concerts that is ran by a married couple on here. I mean I hung out with these people and we played concerts all the time together and even did favors for each other. The person I was in a relationship with on here at the time introduced me to them and honestly she was jealous because it took her weeks if not months to get hired on with them and I had them at hello and was hired on the spot. lol Well when the relationship went bad I had a lot of issues to the point I blocked her and asked them not to schedule me to work with her any more. They continued to schedule us and even after that she went so far as to go to them claiming that I was harassing her during the concert. I told them out right I had her blocked and don't know what she was on about and I have personally asked several times please do not schedule me with her on gigs anymore. At one point I had to become extremely insistent on this and would out right refuse and would have another band member swap places with me on events if I got scheduled with her. At one point things seem to tone down and it didn't seem like there would be any issues concerning that anymore. One day out of the blue I logged in to find myself kicked from all the band groups and unfriended by both of the owners and when I went to IM and ask why I was kicked from the band I found that I was blocked and muted by both my so called friends. So I extended them the exact same courtesy and never once looked back. Not gonna lie I was deeply hurt because I respected them both tremendously. Now I no longer do after having been treated so coldly by them. I realized I was nothing to them and to be perfectly honest I can forgive them. Just that being said if we were in a desert and they were thirsty and I had the only water then I would probably look at them and say I hope you like pee pee. lol Is that pee pee to your liking? Do ya want more? Because you look a little thirsty there. Lmao!!!!😎
