  1. Is there a reason why I can't send IM's in my own groups? Groups that I have started myself have suddenly stopped showing IMs in group chat, either those I send or others. This began a few weeks back and I thought it would fix itself but it hasn't. I try to send a message, click return, and nothing happens and there is no error message. Just a blank window. I have asked other members of the group and sometimes my message appears to them, sometimes it doesn't. I never see one.
  2. I had a similar problem with a neighbour "cultivating trees" so I sympathise entirely. But just a quick suggestion are you sure they removed the trees OR could they have simply moved them out of sight maybe to a platform above? As they were only seasonal I imagine they were decorating their land though so they would have had to move the whole landscape. Just a thought
  3. @Lindal Kidd You misread my post. My decision to relinquish premium membership was taken months ago and has nothing to do with this matter. I mentioned it only in reply to Axel's comment. It also doesn't mean I will leave SL. I tried premium and it doesn't suit me so as soon as my year is out I'm stopping it and continuing like before as a basic account.
  4. @ Dragon Hijinks - it was nothing as decent as Lucky Gamble. It was indecent and offensive to say the least. In fact, I have had to sail past that person again and though I didn't actually get within chat range the name showed up in my mDash radar. Well at least I don't have to see it most of the time but still surprised it was allowed to go through.
  5. @Axel - at the moment I am a premium member but I plan to relinquish this when the term is up. I'm not going to take the trouble to report this since I don't know the person and I've only been in the vicinity en passant whilst sailing. I was just surprised to find that a person can choose any old vulgar or offensive display name with the standard that LL purports to uphold without it being either disallowed by LL or challenged by others who come into contact with this person on a regular basis. This post was mainly posted through my curiosity. Thank you all for replying
  6. I was surprised, and appalled to find that LL had allowed a very offensive display name. With all the attention paid to decency in Second Life, and acknowledging that people are able to do what they like in private, a display name can be seen by anyone who has display names enabled, and this includes children, but even adults who would find certain names offensive to common decency. I was sailing in the region of the Blake Sea and my radar displayed the name of a person I had come within chat range of. in 11 years of Second Life I can say I've never seen such a blatantly offensive display name
  7. It was good as it was. Why change it for the worse, is what I can't get my head around.
  8. When I edit the listing I can upload an image. But when it's uploaded I can't even see it until I save then edit again. And each time I edit I can only upload one picture then have to repeat all over again to upload more pics. They do appear once saved and show in Previewtoo. No problem there. It's just this one at a time thing and it's very time consuming. Used to be able to upload one after the other, all in the same edit instance. What's happened?? :((
  9. I used to be able to upload images of my products one after the other on editing my listings. Not having listed any products for a while I now find that I can only upload one image each time I edit a product - meaning I must save the edit and re-edit to add another image. We are allowed several images per product and I have quite a few products to add. Does that mean I have to edit each one umpteen times just to add images? Or is this some kind of bug?
  10. How do I configure my media so that everyone watching a media screen can see the same film simultaneously/
  11. Thank you. It has.
  12. Having read many times in LL guidelines that all residents are expected to enjoy the facilities provided, I find it hard to believe that owners of land are allowed to set their "security systems" to as little as 10 seconds. If you are flying a helicopter over a large plot at normal airspeed it is not usually possible to clear that space in 10 seconds. Whereas the majority do set a minimum of 30 seconds, and some even more, which is a reasonable time, there are some who set 10 or 20 seconds and this is not really sufficient to be able to get across. The result is that you are thrown off and you
  13. When I am selling a mainland parcel how do I get it to show up as "For Sale" on the map with the $ sign?
  14. That's ok. People still read old posts. We are not all the same SL age. Some have only just found out things they want to find out about. I do it all the time. In fact I wanted to know how to get notifications about reviews on my products and somehow came across this post I still don't know if it is possible.
