  1. I'm not a cache clearing junkies, and I've literally only done it twice. I don't automatically do it as a fix. I usually just relog and all the issues are fixed. But the times that I HAVE done it, I had the same opinion as some people here. I don't see why I should let the cache have hundreds or thousands of textures from stores, places and homes that I will never go to again. You go to a new club you hear about, download all the 850 textures (that's a tiny club), then never go back. That's lots of space just wasted. That was my thoughts anyhow. I tend to just log in, or relog, and I'm fine. My connection handles pretty much anything. The only thing I can't seem to withstand is medium to large size clubs or places that have more than 15 people in them. Only thing that comes to mind is a script overload. I mean, people dancing, on top of whatever they're wearing, on top of the clubs lights, dance balls, screens, and a number of other things running at once. But maybe my thoughts on that are way off.

  2. Thank you all for that. It makes a little better sense now. But in the same turn, even when I do have MINOR issues, such as a friends face texture not loading or something, a quick relog fixes the issue. So... Would you still advise cache clearing for textures not loading? I mean, if it's so helpful to keep (cache).

  3. Ever since I joined SL, people (residents) have been advising me and others to clear their cache every so often. Not only to clear some space, but also to help things run smoother. Now, just last night, I was in a Firestorm support chat, and someone had a question about memory, things being a tad rough, etc. I had suggested they clear their cache every once in awhile. After doing so, I was bombarded with IM's and replies (in chat), hostilely telling me NOT to advise people this, and Firestorm "never suggests anyone EVER clear their cache". A phrase that was given was, "clearing your cache is like throwing away all the good food in your refrigerator".

    Just wondering, can someone tell me what is advisable and what's not? For one, I don't want to advise wrong things. Two, I don't understand why I'm being told these two contradicting actions. The only thing I can think of about the comment stated, was that if you illegally use a texture stealer. Then I can understand why clearing your cache would be harmful.
  4. I'm trying to incorporate a "movie night" at my sim. And I'm having lots of issues. I've bought many different tv's and screens, even attempted to direct parcel media way, building a prim and placing the media texture on it. So far only the tv's work. But even so, everyone seems to get the picture quick and fine. Mine, however, is slow on loafing and sometimes just doesn't load. Even tho everyone else sees it. I use wifi, and I assume it's that. But a few people here say they're on wifi as well, and they have no issues. My wifi is the best I could get as far as speed and connection. So I have no idea. And the texture prim way, just doesn't work at all, ever. For me that is. I usually get the tv going, stare at a black screen, while everyone else is enjoying themselves. So... Any help will be great. Thanks.
  5. No, you're wrong. Child avies can not PARTICIPATE in adult situations. Meaning pose balls, and sexual play. Everything else is fair game.




    Policies towards child avatars are largely focused on the actions of the avatars, not the avatars themselves.

    Child avatars are allowed within Second Life.[1] A child avatar, even within a mature or adult region (but not participating in adult (in this case, sexual) ) activities is allowed. A child avatar is allowed do everything any other avatar is, with the following exceptions:

    Child avatars in sexual situations (sexual congress obviously, though it is unclear beyond this) are not allowed and abuse reportable (ARable).

    Public promotion (classified listing, profile, etc.) of sexual situations with child avatars is not allowed and ARable.

    Creating areas for the purpose of sexual ageplay is not allowed and is ARable. This includes having items with sexual content (sexual poseballs or equipment) in proximity to items traditionally associated with children (swingsets, etc.)

    Indicating that the *real age* of a child avatar (as opposed to a stated SL/role playing age) is below main grid age is not allowed and ARable.

    Child avatar nudity has been called into question as well. While no language specific to nudity was included in the initial policies, child avatar nudity of the genital or chest regions, including in otherwise non-sexual situations (skin vendors, for example) can be a violation. This also applies to parcel descriptions: nudity or "clothing optional" language can not be included in a parcel description on a kid-specific area.

    Note that child avatars are allowed on PG, Mature, and even Adult public parcels, provided with the latter that they are adult verified. Note that this does not necessarily apply to private parcels where one has the option to eject or ban as desired. The allowance of child avatars on adult rated land such as Zindra does not invalidate any of the above rules.

    As with all things, context is key, and err on the side of caution.


  6. No, you can not be AR'd actually.


    "I have been away and my friend, who is on the access list, has been keeping an eye on my home and just visiting."


    And you're done. Keep the payments to yourself, with no description in the payment message. Done this way, you can not be AR'd. Whoever is threatening that you can be AR'd, are just ToS humpers who get nothing out of SL and don't believe in a fun, free environment. These are the same people that will charge you $L350 to join their group that has no land and no one has been on in 2 years. Happy sharing!

  7. First of all, if you were hanging around in a furry place, with other furries... I doubt you would get this response. I'm not really understanding the deal here. I have a demigod tiger avi, a kid Neko outfit, etc. and when I'm around those droids, I do not get negative feedback. But I also know better than to stay in my Neko outfit or furry outfit all day. Yes, you have every right to stay "who you are", 24/7. We all have that right. But it's kind of like an African American CHOOSING to hang out in a KKK ran city. Sure, their beliefs aren't "illegal", and neither is the person going to this place. But the person must be aware of the harassment they will get. So they choose not to go there. Just like Emo kids trying to hang out with the jocks. Sometimes, it just doesn't work and you need to expect some negativity. I just don't understand why you were wherever you were at the time. Usually the furry crowd sticks with their own, or similar minds. A lot of Industrial/EBM clubs allow furries, same with goth clubs. Then, you have the specific furry sims and clubs. So to me it sounds like you were just wandering around trying to talk to people at a random sim. Which makes no sense. Yes, SL is a meeting place. But do you in RL, do you randomly go to places you have no idea about? Specially with an commonly un-liked quirk? I don't think so. You can IM me inworld if you'd like a list of furry/Neko hangouts and clubs.

  8. I thought LL put in an "18 years of age or older" rule. Someone told me that it is possible to be AR'd and banned for being under 18 in real life. But I am not positive. Just what I have heard.


    Also, I was never around for teen grid. I joined last December and have since made 4 accounts. Not for the typical reasons of "hiding", but I like to RP, many different things. One avi for Neko RP, one for kid RP, one for regular socializing (based on my RL self), and one for handling all my business. Such as my credit card. And I must say, as a SL kid myself, there are lots of places for you to go as a teen. Even on G sims. There's a designated sim or few that are dubbed the "kids grid", which have a few of the known kid shops in it, along with its own city. There's also clubs like this. I've learned in my time on SL that just because YOU think the sim is dead, doesn't mean it is. It could be an Australian based sim, and you're running on SLT. Or, it could be a RP sim that works on a certain time frame. Some clubs have REAL hours. Like "open from 9am-12am SLT". Which means any times other than that, expect no one to be there. If I knew the advertising rules better, I would give you the name of a place or two. Very popular G rated clubs and areas. Just need to join groups and keep an eye on their notices to see when things are going. And even as a kid avi, I'm allowed anywhere, just with restrictions on my actions. But even so, most sim owners do not like kid avies. So I've had to go on this mission myself. Best of luck!

  9. I have to agree with you. As far as MY taste goes, I HATE NC givers with a passion, and the age restriction is rather tasteless. We know some have alts or even just new accounts to start fresh, so restricting them is kind of rude, in my opinion. But, I have heard that it keeps things "safer", from griefers and whatnot. And the NC givers... Are just simply annoying to me. Every time you pop in, you get the same 6 pop-ups, and the only way to stop it is ignore the giver. Which in turn, mutes the person. But I understand that if their are "big" rules, that it would be wise to give at least one NC. For those who want to use the "oh, I didn't see the rules" excuse. I do like the idea of click to give though. I also agree with your landing point advice. I'm actually setting that up right now. Only thing i do not know how to do, is separate a skybox from the land. For instance, they cannot TP in unless they join the group, even tho the skybox is on the same parcel, just up high. I may just have to make a small parcel for landing, then put a skybox on that, so that way, it has its own rules. Idk lol. I'm new to all this. Hurts my head... lol

  10. How do i set a "days old" restriction on a homestead. Such as, "you must be at least 3 days old...", etc. Do I HAVE to "Deed" the land to the group in order for group managers and different group roles to have their abilities? I've been told that you must "Deed" it, or the group abilities mean nothing. Some said "Setting" the group, rather than "Deeding", does the trick just the same. Is it a MUST that i have a NC giver that gives visitors rules, requirements, etc. every time they come? Or is putting a rules and requirements at the entrance fine?
