    I still don't think investors are here for Second Life content, and look at the figures you have 500K monthly users compared to Roblox which has 90 million.  Well, for one thing, Roblox works on way inferior devices.  If SL were to run on inferior devices, the avatar quality would suffer greatly and we'd have to be legless or look like a box to run on a phone.  There already are enough of those.  So, SL has the best content to me but it's not easy to run without lag.  But, it's still gorgeous, just gorgeous...just to have a home here.  

    I think Tilia is going to start providing a payment service with a fee through SL and probably Sansar too.   

    I'm not saying I'd leave Paypal as I've been with Paypal for about 20 years, but I have pioneered many things, so I might consider having a payment service here, especially if there were an incentive in my favor to do so.  

    But, this is all a wait 'n see thing anyways.  

    I'm not nervous about it though and I would hope others will give this some time to find out what it is all about.

    I remember when Nissan used to have a sim here, and gave away free cars. A few other RL companies did too, but didn't know how to use the SL market and left. Also, LL competing with their own customers by giving away free homes to Premium users probably didn't help either. As a former landlord I was kinda pissed about that. I stay because of people like Bryn Oh.

     

  2. IMHO, SL has slowly been dying off since 2012. It is the firstborn child of a deadbeat dad that had no interest in rearing it. Said Dad had a second child with another woman and named it Sansar. I became disillusioned in 2009 when LL screwed me out of 50K Lindens. I only stay because as much as I hate the (lack of) customer service, there really is no substitute for it.

  3. Hai Guyz,

     

    Just now, I was cleaning out my inventory, and decided to wear what I thought was a coupon. Suddenly, I lost 3,000L to a deleted account <Moderator Redacted>.  Is there a way to recover the money?

    [ETA: Actually, though, the creator's groups are not hidden -- at least, not the creator for the Marketplace listing -- so it was just a matter of joining one that's open enrollment and makes its members public to each other (I picked "Mesh Dev") to discover he was last in-world on April 30th, 2017, which seems somewhat encouraging.]

    Except He hasn't responded to any of the notecards or offline IMs I've sent him. Thanks for checking though.

  5. Hai Guyz.,

    I am thinking of buying a new sim to rent to other avatars. However, I can only afford one. I haven't thought of whether or not to offer blank land, or to furnish it, or to simply rez skyboxes. I am also assuming that I'd need some sort of rental system as well. I also know about one semester's worth of marketing. I couldn't offer the elaborate system that bigger landlords such as Anshe Chung has in place, but hope maybe a small-time landlord who is able to offer personal assistance(instead of a support system) might be appealing. Is it possible for someone who owns a single sim to compete with larger landlords in the current market?

  6. Hai Guyz,

     

    So I just had a bad experience bidding on a slave. I bid 400L on a slave, a relatively small amount. I never heard back from either the auction house or the slave whom I bid on. Therefore I had assumed that I had lost the auction. However, when I checked to transaction history, I realized that I never got back my bid. When questioned, the person who runs the auction house claimed that I had indeed won, and therefore would not get a refund.

     

    Therefore, my question is as follows:

     

    What are the obligations of an auction house in regards to the bidder, what protections does LL offee to those who bid at auction houses?

  7. I had to re-download most of my firmware for my Asus laptop when I "upgraded". WIn10 is essentially a Beta program in disguise. Your wifi connection randomly dropping along with your touch mouse not working sounds very much like a driver issue. I also had to re-install the Japanese and Korean Language packs to display the characters correctly.

  8. Generally speaking, Most avatars I've met are American, and are therefore present when most Americans aren't working or sleeping(SLT 5pm to 9pm).  Sadly, SL has become very much like the more conventional HTML internet, Mostly porn and cyber sex. There are tons of artistic sims, but are hardly a drop in the bucket among the filth.

     The hardest thing for me is having to explain SL for those who haven't been here more than 5 years. It is an antiquated platform. Case in point, the difference between mesh and conventional prims. Does anyone use sculpties any more?

  9. Hai Guyz,

    I was IM'd out of the blue by an Avatar less than 1 day old:

    Is this legit, and has anyone else gotten this message?

  10. I've seen the same social phenomenon on many BBC forums, SL sims, and other online communities. It works something like this, 1.) Someone creates an awesome idea for a forum/sim. They do everything to desperately get people over to their place which they worked hard on. 2.) The place gains momentum, and the creator(s) are less concerned about growth. There begins to form cliques, mostly the newbies and the "originals". 3.) The cool kids begin  to ban everyone that they don't like. Others get bored and simply hang out at other places. 4.) The place that once thrived becomes a ghost town, and the creator must either relax his own rules, or simply continue to live with a few hanger-ons.

     

     In short, most rp sims in SL are essentially private property. They can ban you for the most trivial of reasons, but people can also choose not to visit.

  11. Pocket Metaverse is your only choice for an Iphone app that accesses SL.  Unless your are allowed to take a laptop into the hospital with you(and the hospital has wireless), then you are out of luck. Metaverse sucks in many ways, the interface is crap, you can;t log IM's, amd it is 7 bucks. Sadly, no one has bothered creating a competitior to Metaverse. Then again, I still play SL for the same reason, no one bothered competing with them.

  12. Hai Guyz,

    I have a pair of Jabra Halo 2 headphones that will not charge. They normally charge via a Micro-USB port, however, in order to charge the headset, I have to wiggle the cable until it gets into a very specific position. I have tried using other Micro-USB charges but with the same effect. I have had issues with Jabra;s tech support in the past, and don't wish to send them in. Is it possible for me to fix them myself?
