  1. make sure all of your products have a green check mark indicating 'active' status, on your manage listings page. I had this come up once too, for wrong category, and I didn't notice the listing was inactive because the manager did not sort them as unlisted. That's all I got.

My car-and-wall analogy are much more fitting than your sheep comparison, for the simple fact that people and sheep are not even anatomically close in relation. However if you are merely speaking metaphorically... Funny how that dependency on semantics thing cuts both ways, isn't it? You are right about one thing: the masses tend to follow pack mentality even when they don't understand it, and often do or say imbecilic things that not only don't make sense, but also undermine their own position. Case in point.

Compare what is comparable... This from the person who compares a four legged animal to a two legged animal? Very well, allow me to put this into more rudimentary terms you can understand: Get in your 32 prim scripted vehicle, start at one end of the parcel, and drive full speed at a boundary crossing with your eyes closed... Even with your favorite pair of blinders firmly affixed, I think you see where I am going with this. After you are finished with your timeout, perhaps you can explain how you properly correct your path and avoid an obstacle with your eyes closed, whether by sand or bandana. PICS or it didn't happen. The moral to this story: disregarding a portion of a statement in an effort to discredit the same only works if you're attempting to be facetious. Case in point.

Based on this concept, if you drive full speed at a brick wall with your eyes closed, does it just go away? How about with your eyes opened, but preoccupied by some other distraction? How about if you tell the wall it is not there? How about if someone else tells you the wall it is not there? Problems don't go away just because we don't want to see them. Ask an alcoholic. Assuming others see the world (and therefore act) according to everything you see will not just hurt you. It can kill you. If you assign this basic example of cause and effect to your business ethic: Assuming others see the world (and therefore act) according to everything you see will not just hurt your business. It can...and will...kill it. But don't take my word for it. Talk to anyone who has suffered a restructuring due to corporate takeover.
  4. At least one item has sold per day since January. April sales have doubled at minimum, and customers are now buying multiple related items at a time, instead of just one item. multpile purchases of unrelated items remains the same. Item searches, as well as item views, appear to be climbing at the previous rate. So much for consistency. I think it probably has more to do with actual economical factors than any virtual one.
  5. I rarely do what everyone else is doing. I find more data present in watching the fluctuations than the actual figures, which I only consider a benchmark since I cannot verify how listings written in languages other than English rate. Despite that fact, I get the exact same figure using either approach. 1801481 matching items found this morning. Whoever figures it out gets a brownie button.

Well it means their kinda funny, but in a different way. Edfred Jungsten wrote: That's not an accurate response, thank you very much.

It states clearly right at the end that it was sent by Linden Labs. And that's what made me laugh.
  7. The same way as I had previously suggested to another individual in another thread; by clicking on the see all listings button. I don't seem to be restricting any particular content that I am aware of. I don't have anything set to prohibit any particular maturity level. Pretty sure I'm age verified otherwise I wouldn't be able to go to all those naughty places and see all those kinky listings. Maybe I'm filtering foreign content. Either way I don't know how listings created in languages other than English would factor in to the whole thing. I am pretty sure they exist. 1,785,616 matching items found at 11:30 SLT. Increasing again but still less than the approximate 2,170,000 I started at.
  8. 1779917 listings this morning. I also considered that there is a possibility a filter is active, though I could not say which one. I have no problem viewing adult listings. If that is the case, then I suppose the difference between my count and any other would just be the remainder. In either case, the fluctuations are still noticeable. The count seems to be pulsing, rather than only increasing or decaying exponential to time.
  9. I would guess it is due to the closure of magic boxes, if you have any. Your boxes have a sort of server listing, for lack of an interest in looking it up, and if it persists, there seems to be a sort of spectral existence lingering. Kind of. Ish. Thing. It says you have boxes out still. At those locations and given coordinates. If the boxes don't exist in world, you can remove their reference on Xstreet. There's a tutorial via el searcho. Otherwise it's just their typical automated pre-prepared basic generic incentive statement. It will probably be awhile before they trim up all the loose ends. If ever. [EDIT: the cat made me do it]
  10. I currently show 1,776,296 active listings. Seems to be on the decline still
  11. Am I reading correctly that you did all 400 at once? If so, I think you already stated what the cause of the problem was. If not, please clarify. Also hopefully you can find something here that can at least illuminate things a little: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Merchants/Direct-Delivery-tips-amp-tricks/td-p/1934269
  12. I noticed some time ago that SLMP has flooded with ripped game graphics of vehicles, weapons, you name it. Chances are, if the price seems too low to match the quality of the design, it's too good to be true. And if it's too good to be true, it is probably a rip off. Unscrupulous people frequently steal graphic files from game CD's, convert the file type if necessary, and upload it as their own, usually charging a price so low that it makes it very obvious they are trying to offload stolen products. Kind of like that guy in the van selling DVD players and VCR's by the side of the freeway, or those scuzzy dudes trying to sell cheap house speakers in the Home Depot parking lot. With only a little bit of cursory investigation, you will find that you can build an entire sim based on a video games' source files, just using the ripped off graphics you can easily find upped to the marketplace. I have no idea how these blatant copythieving scumbags get away with it for as long as they do. It's pretty disgraceful to be honest. But since there is nothing I can do about it (except not get paid to chase someones copy right for them) I have no choice but to look the other way. I imagine at some point this loophole will get closed, and then Linden Labs will possibly be sued into the stone age. Only time will tell.
  13. Out of almost 400 listings, I have had to repopulate three that refused to cooperate. I consider that a successful migration. An additional advisory: SLOW DOWN. Especially if you are switching between one or more viewers at any time. Trying to convert too fast WILL cause you problems, so just dial it back to first gear, alright turbo? The web page WILL be slow to respond. Your listings WILL be slow to refresh. Expect it. Also, avoid fast-swapping between Firestorm and Phoenix. The risk of anomalies born from packet loss and differences in viewer coding appear to increase dramatically.
