  1. Apologies for the late notice. User group will move to next Wednesday, September 11. See you then!
  2. pssst actually, this one is maybe quite exciting:
  3. Oooh! Single Linden is a great name. /me adds to the sekrit list
  4. IANAL and also INACPA so no comment on the intricacies of taxable income. But Tilia Inc is a wholly owned subsidiary of Linden Lab, and Tilia employees are Lindens. Chic, the policy has not changed. I'm not sure which reports you are referring to, and even if I knew any details, I certainly wouldn't be able to comment on any individual account's circumstances.
  5. "Internal Script Improvements" are rolling to all RCs today. Sorry we dropped the ball on release notes.
  6. Rya, if you had already submitted your ID to us in the past, I would recommend waiting until Aug 1 - we may be able to import everything into the new system and not need anything else. However, some regulations for information we need to collect to verify identity may have changed since 10 years ago, so it may be that we'll need you to do this again. If you have questions about your specific account, it's best to file a support case. While Lindens do hang out on the forums, we do not generally make any guarantees to follow all forum discussions. p.s. it's a ms. grumpity but I'm certainly not offended either way
  7. So... until Aug 1 you're good to go. You could request a process credit today. As of Aug 1, if you hadn't submitted your ID yet, you will _not_ be good to go - you'll need to go through the verification process. If you had submitted your ID in the past, you will need to wait until Aug 1 to know for sure, or if that was a few years ago and you want to be ready to request a process credit right away, you could go through the process now via https://accounts.secondlife.com/submit-kyc. I hope that was helpful, and realize that it's confusing
  8. So, uh, this is a little awkward. Here's what happened: We deployed some changes in preparation for August 1st, and those changes were generally good ... but just right this moment had a less than great side effect - the check mark you see in billing info now reports your _current_ ability to process credit. Since you do not _currently_ need to submit ID to do so, all will see the green check mark. Oops. The downside of this is, come August 1, you may once again see a red X and need to submit your info if you want to process credit. Fortunately, you can still submit the info via this link: https://accounts.secondlife.com/submit-kyc. If you have already submitted ID, you do not need to do so again. We agonized about this for some time, and decided that fixing this now would introduce additional risk. Last thing we want to do is introduce new bugs - so we ended up sticking with the second to last thing we wanted to do - introduce confusion.
  9. Hi Esmeraldazs, You're seeing the Tilia Account labeling in preparation for the official launch on Aug 1. You will not need to accept the Tilia Terms of Service or verify your ID until then. However, if you have a USD balance on Aug 1, you will need to accept the Tilia Terms of Service to access your account. You will only need to verify your ID information if you decide to process credit. If you're going to be using your USD balance to pay for Second Life services, you will not need to provide further ID information.
  10. Fixed! Looking into that bug. @Lindal Kidd could you get a screenshot? We believe there's always been a link there. In other news, we have a message directing users to disable their ad blocker if the form is not displaying going out shortly.
  11. kayla, we do not even display your full email address in your account info! We absolutely do not display any of the submitted ID information, including the SSN, on a subsequent login, so while a hacker getting into your account is a serious threat, no doubt, no ID information would be available to them. I highly recommend Soft Linden's blog post about the work we've done on privacy and security.
  12. Hi! I've pointed the team at the bug reports and feature requests above. They're all reasonable, but would make me so much happier if they were in ... jira Not because I am a mean horrible grump, though I am, but because it would most expediently put those reports and requests in front of the right group of people to address them, and have a feedback loop to you.
  13. Hi! I am confirming that you can process credit without having to submit additional documentation until August 1. Until then, the "additional information" form is voluntary. If you fill it out before then, it's going to still be valid after Aug 1, so if you wanted to make sure there was no delay later on - you could. Also, the team is still working on moving all the ID data they have from those who had submitted their info in the past into the new system, so some of you who see that we need additional info today may not see that by August. Cheers!
  14. The official Tilia FAQ in the Knowledge Base has been updated for posterity with information most of you here have already seen either in the forums or in the townhall. We'll get translations up before August 1st as well. I see the Tilia Security Blog from Soft is already old news here Have a great weekend!
  15. 1. No 2. You agree to the new Tilia ToS come August 1, and hopefully never give this another thought. If the day comes when you decide to take some of your earnings out of SL, you will have to go through the ID verification process before you can get your money. 3. I hope those are satisfactory
