  1. Hi, sorry for late response, yes I had my emails enabled on both accounts and couldn't get chicklets on either, it must have been Black Friday Sale just lagging the system, my group is only small. Anyway I have sent one notice since and it seemed to work. Thanks very much for trying to help.
  2. Hi, I have a small group of 50 people and when i send a msg, it doesn't open the group in the chats tab, doesn't post for a few moments up in left hand corner of screen. It also doesn't come through to email ( I tested with an alt) I have ' able ot receive group messages selected.. Does anyone have any idea? Thank you
  3. I changed log in spot to this sandbox http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cyclops/154/146/4
  4. And TP-ed home (mainland) , then to another 2 sandboxes
  5. I just logged in to a sandbox http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cyclops/154/146/4
  6. People online has gone from 8k to 10k
  7. Slowly coming right, now my viewer can hold my password, before it was erased from input box each try.
  8. That's a typo, I meant basic no gifting, not no basic accounts. I edited it out about 10 minutes before you posted.
  9. I don't want to start that game, it just gives thieves permission to steal more and then premiums start rising. Basic no gifting and phishing scam warnings on log in seem still the best option, easy to implement, to me. My ultimate is to work out how to best identify and ban phishers and copybotters and actually do it, but they too generate a lot of income for LL. As you keep trying to stress, the machine is the machine. But still, it could work a lot better.
  10. I've thought of a group fund not for insurance but for a lawyer.
  11. The basic no gifting thing would be really good, as it, to my mind, cuts merchant out of the crime loop. The loss should go on the account buying the item, not the seller who bought it to resell legitimately. I know they are often victims of phishing, but a merchant can't be asked to be responsible for them. A regular repeat of a log in notice on main viewers to warning on blindly clicking the phishing links people spray out in groups would be helpful. The threat of a scam will get peoples attention enough to take notice. Already the competition is steep, copy botters putting rares and entire collections up often at near cost price is impossible to compete with when a merchant often spends 50 to 200 real dollars to buy up enough to get the equivalent in stock and is left a massive amount of stuff that won't sell for years. To my mind, the big merchants putting the gacha's out at festivals and so on seem to be making enough profit not to file dcma on their copybottted gacha's or they would do more often.
  12. A few hours or a few days to write/update some code to trace money & items. Three minutes to Type an avs name and press the button, another two minutes to return the items to rightful owner. Deduct the daily stream of time to cut and paste the by rote 'not our problem" answers to cheated merchants. Add the profit that comes from running an attractive business model.
  13. Hi Klytyna, Thanks very much for taking the time to explain. I've seen the phishing spams you are talking about and it makes sense now, but why go after the merchant and not the phishers alt? I think we need to stop both, gift option and people falling for spam.
  14. I just got a letter saying they had removed some money from my alt acc I send my MP payments too. I am very lucky it was under $2kL, I identified the payment in my history and can see it was an avatar gifting to another. Reading above posts, I don't understand what LL gain out of going after us and not the fraudster. And also don't quiet understand who or what LL are actually compensating? And if the fraudsters cashed out, who are LL paying back? Sorry if it is really obvious but it goes over my head, can someone please explain? The transfer items are there in the fraudulent buyers/alts inventory or the next buyers, possibly the fraudulent earnings are still around too. Also I've seen stuff on MP where various buying options were unavailable, 'buy as gift' or a "buy now" I can't remember which, so it might be possible to do as Stone suggests.
  15. Thanks very much for your responses, Lutricia and Ela. For now I am MP and am only starting off in world and don't have a lot of stuff for sale yet, no traffic in world yet either, so I am going to put the SL script in to just sell. And will test and check out vendors separately & privately in my skybox. I have scoured the (huge & pretty well detailed) wiki to the vendor I am trying and found the area- constant runstack errors, yet neither of their suggestions seems to be cause, no response at all on the ticket I filed, no invite to group. A real shame as it looked like a good vendor. E2V, mentioned above, sounds really good support wise, which matters heaps to me, especially in the novice era of using something, but is substantially more cost wise than others and currently beyond me. t's weird about the groups, as I mentioned I can't get into this vendor support group, also there was no group provided for a really nice HUD system I invested in. I don't get why they don't give group access, makes most thing so quick & easy to solve support wise. I found this SL wiki page with a few big vendor systems compared, cost & features etc. It might be interesting or helpful for people. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Vendor_systems_comparison
  16. Hi, I've been trying to set up one of the big vendors, it was simple and looks awesome, but keeps crashing and I can't get an invite to tech support group. So my original plan was just the sales script but i wanted an email notification and split profit included. It would work for me as MP does, I keep track by email there. I expect these scripts are everywhere, but I can't find one, so am wondering do they exist? Because I would rather just do that for now. Also I am curious why people don't just do this simple method? Is it that is is safer from copybotters or all the extra conveniences with the big vendor companies? Thanks
  17. After a few relogs it has dissapeared scared the xxxxx outa me
  18.  Am unable to restock transfer item listings which need restocking ..as my only option is to join a beta trail which I don't want to do atm at all. Anyone else have this, I looked on al alt, the MP Listings folder on it looked fine (even though it's an empty store it gave me choice to drop folders in to create listings like normal.
  19. Ha, so cool, with in 1 minute it was starting to sell in little heaps. Great!
  20. Hi Pam, Thanks, I'll go pull it off and put it back at that. Cheers.
  21. Hi About 24 hours ago I put a wad of $L onto the LindeX to sell at 248 lindens for a dollar. I had read it was quite quick, but that blog post is old. I have no movement on it. Is this normal? Are there optimum amounts of Lindens that sell quicker? Is there a best way to choose the mount of lindens per dollar you sell for? Thank you in advance for any experiences shared.
  22. don't worry, lol, i just put a new one up. :smileyhappy: though one thing to think of is these days there are scripts that you can ada button to your demo (if it's in a hud) to take the customer back to the listing. can't hurt, i just put on on the new demo.
  23. Did either of you find a fix? I uploaded an item and messed it up, it was left on my MP listings as just SKU: and blank in the details, lead to an empty unlisted MP, so I uploaded again and it was fine, uploaded & linked my demo then the next day I have a look how it's going and the demo won't link back to the product page. I checked version numbers they're all in order on web page and in viewer Listings Folder. I worked out how to remove the dead page, rebooted, still so solution
  24. From the MP instructions I read you can upload the ffixed version into a new version folder on the listing and run that instead. https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Viewer-managed-Marketplace/ta-p/2854226
