  1. I think maybe this dead horse has been beat enough. Tempers are starting to get a bit thin, so it's time to move on.
  2. Step back from the keyboards, please, and take a few really deep breaths. It's good to have a hearty discussion, but please remember that we are expected to avoid personal attacks. You are encouraged to review the Community Guidelines.
  3. OK, I guess that's it. We all need a rest. In the future, please remember that this is a public forum and that we are all expected to follow the http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Community_Participation_Guidelines. Discussion is always encouraged and disagreements are inevitable, but please resist any temptations to attack each other personally.
  4. It's time to slow down and take a few deep breaths, guys. Disagreement is fine, but please keep it polite. Watch the personal attacks, OK?
  5. OK, this thread's been going off the rails for a while now. I think it's time to wrap it up. Good night, all.
  6. It feels like time to take a deep breath and back away from the keyboards. Please remember to be polite. Bloodshed will not be tolerated.
  7. I suggest submitting a support case . Include the name of the region (either LR167 or LR187) where you tried using a payout pad, the approximate time that you tried it, and whether you used the daily pad or the weekly one.
  8. We're sorry you have been inconvenienced this weekend. We have been trying to figure out why the payout pads in Linden Realms have stopped working, but it's going to take some time. As a precaution, I have deactivated all scripts in the payout pads so you cannot lose any of the credit you have for crystals and quests while we work on the pads. I can't predict how soon things will be working again. Meanwhile, you can still collect crystals and complete the quests.
  9. Yay! It's meteorological autumn now! This is one of the occasional benefits of using the shared environment settings in your viewer instead of using custom EEP settings or just locking your viewer to Midday. It's a magical world. 🌈

    All better. You can always submit a support case if you have problems, but I happened to be cruising through here and saw your note.
  11. Besides, Moles are sneaky. We do our best work when you can't see us.
  12. Probably. It's worth a shot. One of the nice things about EEP is that you can not only personalize its effects, but you can trigger it differently for each person if you are clever enough with scripting.
  13. You have two options: 1. As instructed on the Guide Book's menu, "Click the GUIDEBOOK button in the bottom toolbar or Help menu > Guidebook". (The GUIDEBOOK button is on your viewer's taskbar by default if you are a SL newcomer, and the Help menu is at the top of your viewer screen.) 2. Hit the F1 key on your keyboard.
  14. No fair peeking. πŸ˜‰
  15. You can expect them any time. They will be available when they are ready ... Soonβ„’
  16. Yes, but with great cosmic significance. We deal only with A-one, Ultra class junk. Oh yes, and Mess with those and your universe will start to shred at the edges. 😈
  17. You are not the only one. I hate dealing with permissions. I like Molly's list of suggestions about setting perms and abilities for doing group work. In addition, I would suggest ,,, Don't do that. I know it's easy and fast, but it doesn't always work properly. (I don't know why, but it just doesn't.) Even when it does work, the risk is high that you will absent-mindedly delete the wrong copy. I remember a former colleague who was notorious for doing that on our group work. It's much safer to use Save Copy and then rez the copy from your own inventory.
  18. Yes. As noted in a couple of threads in the forums, it's on our radar. The technology there is quite out of date, so it will take more than a quick band-aid to bring the park up to present standards.
  19. Just remember that you cannot choose a specific location. You specify the style of home that you want (Traditional, Victorian, Log, Stilt ....) and you are offered a location among those that are available at the time. You can abandon a Linden Home and choose a new one up to five times a day.
  20. Either way works. If you rez your bike on the ground, it should auto-attach. (Assuming that you rez it in a place where you have permission to rez it, like one of the handy rez zones on Belliserria. ) Otherwise, you can ADD it directly from your inventory, as Quartz says.
  21. Thanks. That lower limit is a bit arbitrary, but we took several things into account. The maximum height at which objects can be seen on the world map, for example, is 400m. Also, there have been several discussions here in the forums about how far above someone's house you have to be before it's impossible to cam inside. It turns out that it's something like 300m. When you take into account that we have terraformed Bellisseria with some "mountainous" regions that are well above the average 22m elevation of most of the Mainland, it seemed that setting the lower edge of the fly zone at 400m was a reasonable choice. It's high enough to keep travelers from peeking into places where they shouldn't. The 2000m upper limit guarantees that flyers won't bump into any skyboxes or random garbage either.
  22. That doesn't even sound easy. It's always possible to turn of all scripts in a parcel or region, but I can't think of a way to lock up just one script -- especially if I don't know exactly which script to lock. There are a huge number of security systems out there, and it's not hard to write new ones. Even if I had a tool that could target a specific type of orb, we'd be playing an endless game of Whack-A-Mole to find and lock them all. That's sort of the situation we are already facing as we try to keep up with the evil ones that residents report with ARs, so that hypothetical tool wouldn't help much. Worse than that, if I could think of a way to lock someone else's script, you can bet that griefers would also be able to do it. Talk about my worst nightmare ..... πŸ₯Ί
  23. The LH Security System is not designed to control access to your house. It is a parcel control, activated when anyone crosses the parcel boundary. Like any security orb you might buy from the Marketplace, it doesn't even know that your house exists, so it does not communicate with Control Panel functions. (In fact, you might want to whitelist a completely different set of friends for access at the altitude of a skybox than you allow on the ground, so you could rez a separate Security System up there.) You rez the LH Security System once and you never have to replace it as long as you own the parcel. It's available because we wanted to provide a security system that could be placed anywhere in the parcel, at any altitude, and would be fully compliant with the Linden Homes covenant. That is, it can be placed anywhere in the parcel, will allow at least a 10 second warning, will only eject unwelcome visitors (not send them home), will only detect people within the parcel boundaries and within the altitude range that you set, and will ignore people in the free airspace between 200 and 1000m. By contrast, the Control Panel is specific to the house model that you choose to rez. Each house has its own characteristics and may have different options than other houses within the same theme, so each time you rez a new house, you get a new Control Panel that is built into it. The access list that you create in the Control Panel deals with your house, not the parcel. It is saved remotely, so it persists if you rez a new house on the parcel, but its focus is entirely on house functions. Decor choices are also saved remotely, but are deleted if you rez a different style of house on the parcel.
