  1. Hey guys, I can't really find a straight answer to this, so here's what I want to do:

    I own a bunch of mainland on one avatar, I have a house and my store there, but I have another avatar that I want to transfer it all to so that that avatar can manage it, and have SL premium and whatnot. If I sell the land to my other avatar specifically, is my whole store and also my house going to be returned to my inventory? Or will it stay there unchanged?

    Basically, if I "sell" my mainland to my other avatar, will everything stay exactly the way it is on the parcel? or will everything disappear? haha

  2. Hey guys, I have a homestead region, and I don't know if maybe I did it while I was sleeping? haha but my region SEEMS to have set itself to access list only, by itself, randomly. I don't know where else to ask this, or if this is a thing that happens, or maybe I did something that caused it, but if anyone knows, I'd like to avoid this happening in the future, because I have renters who were probably wondering what was going on. (note: I do know how to make it public access again, I'm just really confused how it set itself access list only, apparently)

  3. Hey all! I tried asking for this in Second Life and people just wanted to sell me their own adboards, but that's not what I want.

    I want a full perm script that does everything a regular adboard would, i.e. I can sell the adboards through my store, the customer can rez those adboards on their land and their visitors can load textures, notecards and landmarks into them for a weekly rental fee. A percentage of that fee would go to the land owner and a small percentage would also go to me.

    I am willing to pay a reasonable price in order for this type of script to be made (I'll even provide a small marketplace commission if simply paying for the job isn't enough), please contact me here or in SL.

  4. I had an experience very much like this back at the beginning of last year. My partner and I had decided to make a business out of customizing car paint jobs for people and building them custom. I helped her come up with the name and even fabricated for her a name for a racing team and a brandname energy drink to spice things up and spread our name around. On top of that, I did a heck of a lot of the work, nearly all of it actually, and that's not gloating.

    Well, eventually, as all relationships do, it came to an end. So what does she do? She keeps the work I did and the names I came up with and calls them her own. She only eventually removed my things from her store after I threatened to file reports, but then she goes and actually pays for a copyright on the business name.

    I know right? Totally crap.

    It wasn't all bad though, because I ended up creating and copyrighting a new store name and even made my own brandname energy drink with way better mesh and textures but that's beside the point...

    While LL won't really do much without proof of copyright, I've found the number one way to avoid this and learn from it is to never ever start a business partnership where everyone owns like half of everything, especially in a romantic relationship. The way to have the best outcome is to own the entirety of a business yourself, and then designate business partners below that title and rank, without giving them control over brandnames and products.

    I know that doesn't help much now but had I been wiser at the time, I would have copyrighted the name beforehand, but then I think the biggest problem is that people are just out to make a dollar or two, whatever it takes. It's true in the real world and it resonates in Second Life. Heck, just today I saw a new location in Second Life that is a complete ripoff of a particular successful business and it makes me wonder how that even happens without immediately flagging someone's radar.

    Best of luck to you though, and if you need help in advertising and picking your new business up, let me know, I might actually be able to help.

  5. You seemed to miss the part in her post where she plainly stated that this abuse she's been receiving was possibly self inflicted. I don't really care about how buddy-buddy you are with her, I'm stating facts. There is a difference between suggesting things that may help in increasing security and the reduction of harassment and flat-out making statements that place blame on the person receiving the abuse.

  6. See this is the kind of thing I think is unhealthy, Madelaine. If someone is being stalked by someone who is absolutely ruthless in their behavior, it is irresponsible and inflammatory to blame the stalkee for that in any way. In the real world we call that victim blaming.

    I think the reason it may not seem like anything is being done though is because, as it was stated, this guy apparently has 50-100 accounts. That must be at least somewhat frustrating and hard to keep track of on Linden Lab's part, and is really gross too.

    Aside from making sure your land and group permissions are correct, I really do think LL should have a resident name changer, which would be a really simple solution. If you need help with land settings and other security measure that you can take to keep this person out of your privacy, feel free to IM me in-world and I'll help you out.

  7. HI there, I've been wracking my brain about this issue all day. I've tried rebaking textures, switching Firestorm graphic preferences around, switching to the default SL viewer, restarting my PC, messing with resolution, even changed the pixel resolution in Photoshop, but I'm still losing a drastic amount of quality when I apply a 1024x1024 texture to a tattoo layer (used for lipstick). It's as if Second Life is forcing it to downscale, causing a tremendous loss of quality.

    Here is the texture in photoshop (obligatory watermark):


    And then here's my preview of it in Second Life:



    I really wish I could figure this out, but I'm here now to see if maybe someone else knows what the problem is.

    I wanted to reply to this comment, because I was Googling the script for what this topic is about and saw this comment. I just wanted to say that saying things like this is absolutely not helpful and irritating. Good day.
