  1. I don't have a problem with it. In fact, I was sharing the Flickr photo that a member of the Fab Free staff had uploaded, and linking to their wordpress, to creators who didn't know about their gacha sale store list. I also got thanked by the woman and other creators as well for sharing so that they could contact her to put their store on the list. I also shared to all the fashion FB groups I am in as well. I like to help our community. Somehow you took what I said out of context with a negative assumption about me, twisting my words. I was mentioning how 1 store said they "might" have gacha fatpacks in their store with a 50% off discount. That is a very old fashioned lure to bring people to your store. Instead of being transparent and stating how many gacha discounted fatpacks they had placed out for purchase.
  2. Fab Free is graciously putting together a never ending listing of stores offering gacha sales until the ban. Lowest common price I am seeing is 25L. You can contact them in-world to add your store or view their wordpress to see what is there.
  3. I am in Flickr, adding my new releases to other Flickr groups I wasn't a member of. I see that a store is taking advantage of the coming ban. They are now offering a very, very cheap gacha sale, and that some gachas may be available as fatpacks, with a 50% discount. There is the lure to bring you to their store. You "may" find something is offered as a gacha fatpack at 50% off, or you may not. LOL Why even resort to that type of behavior? They could have stated how many discounted gacha fatpacks are available with the numerical amount. *shakes head*
  4. Right, that is unfortunate. I have never understood the point of that. Gachas at an event and not at your mainstore at the same time, are because of the event rules, to only sell during their round. When it ends, you can put it back up in your mainstore. They think that making an item more elusive, hypes it up to rack in sales. What people really want is mass quantity. To always be available at the mainstore. Don't want old products in your store? Put them on the marketplace. Or they can do a limited edition in their mainstore, selling a certain amount of copies. It will be copy/ no transfer and you can always get a redelivery if you lost it in your inventory. Creators want to stand out and be "unique" for their customers. You can be unique on how you create your shape, style of hair, type of skin. That all makes a difference. You could meet another person wearing the same clothes but the style of everything else they wear can be completely different. I think people worry too much about being the same. It's only a virtual world. Take it as a compliment, be happy you met someone who enjoys what you like.
  5. It's not gambling. You know that what you want, will not be given to you. You know you will get one of the prizes shown. This means you are comfortable with getting anything shown on the gacha poster, because you like what is shown. You may also love the creator's products, having bought many of their products that are not in gacha machines. There is always the option to buy from a regular vendor in their mainstore. It's not like the store only has gachas. Also I had added more information as an edit to my post but then got a rl call and had to pause my typing. It's there now if you want to go back to it.
  6. I mentioned prizes, not getting coins. The gacha in SL is from the gachapon in Japan. Of course a slot machine is gambling because you don't know how much money you are going to win. Playing a nickel machine and getting a nickel back is not winning anything. Winning would be getting more than what you put in. You can see the prizes before you pay a machine. You know you will be given one of the prizes. It's not gambling because it's not a slot machine filled with money.
  7. I love that store! This is one store I will be sad to see the gachas go away. Then again, I also root for the creator and their pocket. They really should be priced very high. You get uv/shadow maps, etc, and an applier kit to create your own textures. Who has ever gotten a full modified product in a gacha? Said no one ever.
  8. The sploders should make the last person who pays into the sploder, the winner. That is the legal way to do it, according to the TOS. Not these lucky egg sploders where everyone is a winner. That makes it a game, to see who can be the last bidder. Only one winner, not paying out to everyone who put in money.
  9. You can join these mainstore sale events. Saturday Sale, Miix, Wanderlust Weekend, Happy Weekend and so on. All these prices are under 100L. Much better than a gacha as they are copy. You get to choose which color/ print you want as everything in that sale section is priced the same.
  10. You can, if you tell your customers to click the Info button on your scripted vendor system, and have a shortened url link to your FB page or Flickr ad photo and so forth, with the various traits for that specific breedable animal. I have added the Flickr link on all of my vendors(not gacha), so that they can see any additional details and see the ad photo at the high resolution. Yes, it's more effort but your customers will appreciate that.
  11. Gachas are NOT gambling. When you gamble in a casino, you are not guaranteed a win after putting up your money in the form of a bet amount. Gachas were inspired by the Japanese gachapon machines that you put coins in and get a prize in a plastic ball package. Those machines are placed in retail stores in malls. They show a picture of what you can get. Just like those machines in grocery stores, where you can get cheap little toys. You don't lose out on anything. The bonus was that you could resell the gacha on the marketplace or in-world, with the creator's permission. Then you are earning your money back for a common and making double or more back on rare products. I think because there is a gacha frenzy going on, it could be why LL wants to put a stop to it. Especially when people complain and say they want to buy a specific color/ pattern, but wanting it at the super cheap price of a gacha. This is actually helping creators to earn more profit with the actual value of the product's pricing point, instead of bending over backwards and selling under value.
  12. I invited a person to join SL. They said they made an account but haven't logged in-world yet. Do they have to login first for it to register with the search function? I've tried both in-world and the website, and the name doesn't appear.
  13. How did this positive thread become so negative? Negative people with a mission to ruin the positivity of this thread, please be positive! Share how you view the world, with positivity!
  14. You are wrong. I read the quantum woo and that has nothing to do with the 4th dimension. The 4th dimension is time, as Albert Einstein had discovered and predicted it to be. It is also mathematical . Had you done your research, you would know the theory is valid and real. Quantum woo is about "law of attraction" and "crystal healing". The demonstration of a crystal vase was to help you understand the dimensions of a crystal itself, to put it in layman's terms. This film I linked to is not related to that man's channel. There are countless videos, about the fourth dimension. Outside of videos, there are countless scientific journals talking about it. Try to do further research instead of skimming and not paying attention to what it is that you watch. Then you won't feel silly for stating it is a false claim. That man had also produced products that killed a person. The 4th dimension theory hurts no one. It is very easy to understand this theory, you just have to focus and pay attention. I'll allow you to search the web about it, instead of linking to numerous, legit sources.
  15. This is a great and innovative approach to understanding a person's mind processes and perhaps how it could unravel the person's condition to create new treatments to aid those who suffer with this debilitating condition.
  16. I love how we haven't been able to dissect the integral part of ourselves that controls everything we experience. It might not be meant to be discovered. Enjoy the process as it goes on its way, its "mysterious" pondering ways. Although it would be fascinating to unlock every chamber in the brain, to know the unknowable, to perhaps find there is more to what we have found thus far. Wouldn't it be neat to discover that there is indeed a wealth of information that we have yet to unlock, that could bring us to a new awareness about life itself?
  17. I love the fourth dimension theory! I came across a fascinating video about it a few years ago. OMG I cannot believe I found it! I had to use "scientists explain the 4th dimension theory", to come across it amongst the many about this topic. This is a film and it's really amazing, beautiful captures, crisp. Just amazing! I think you will love it and it's easy to understand with how she explains it.
  18. There are plenty of posts on the forum, over the years, that are filled with harassment that the moderation team ignores. You have to constantly contact them to get them to open your reports or nothing is done. Unfortunately, not all companies enforce their own policies to a T.
  19. This would be called, obeying the policies of the website you are chatting on. If you don't want to abide by the policies, it's better that you don't participate. Right?
  20. Unfortunately it is. The web is overrun by preteens, teens and young adults across social media and inside SL as well. These are the ones who complain if your sentence has more than 4 words in it. Or if you write two sentences and more. I'm talking about my personal experiences. It's rare for me to meet mature adults who cannot handle a normal and long conversation.
