  1. Thanks for that, Callum. I did send a polite notecard giving all the relevant order details - after trying to IM her - no response to either. She doesn't have an in-world store. She doesn't have any picks in her profile (how convenient). She also has a funky mess of symbols on either end of her name just to make it difficult to find her in a people search (unfortunately for her, I'm like a sniffer dog - can find almost anyone or any thing). She's been online continuously for the last 3 hours (since purchasing the item). Might have to deliver an ultimatum: deliver, refund - or - be named and shamed. It's doubly frustrating because I've spent the last 3 months trying to get my friend to come into SL (she finally did a few weeks ago) but this sort of caper doesn't leave a great first impression. Also don't understand why neither myself (the buyer) or my friend (the gift recipient) can leave a review.
  2. Purchased an item for my best friend (we share an apartment and a laptop!) that she needs for work in SL. My friend never received the item and I'm now down L$1500. We've tried to IM the seller twice (she was online both times) - no response. Then we tried sending a notecard that included the relevant details of the sale from my order page ("gift for..." included). Again, no response. I can only think that the seller either doesn't speak English or is just happy to rip customers off. Would I be right in assuming the Lindens attitude would be one of 'tough luck' and that there's no recourse for victims of dishonest sellers? It's not as though this item hasn't been purchased before - it's received a fairly healthy number of positive feedback, which is the whole reason I wanted to buy it for my bestie. Also, it seems I'm not able to write a review for this item ("you must purchase the product before you can review it") but neither can my friend, who's the intended recipient - she gets exactly the same message, which really sucks. This is frustratingly and blatantly unfair.
  3. Might these be along the lines of what you're looking for - Belleza ( Isis / Freya)? Not platforms and not huge heels, but they're my fave.
  4. *hunts for definition of 'invisible pony riders', checks to make sure she's not one of them...whoops!* More thighs please! Fixed. God I love sliders...
  5. Solved: Privacy > LookAt > Show LookAt Targets Absolutely no idea what that has to do with spaz arm movement when selecting objects, but it's the last thing I tried and it worked.
  6. Not sure when this started happening (sneaking suspicion it was after downloading/installing latest version of Firestorm), but all of a sudden when I select an object, I get the old 'spaz arm' action happening. Have made sure 'show select beam' is deselected in Build and went into prefs > Move & View and avatar, but nothing seems to be selected that would be causing it. And it's driving me 100% certifiably loopy.
  7. I'm wondering what might be going on, too, because Firestorm has been crashing without warning in the last few days or so. Really embarrassing when someone keeps trying to introduce themselves and it keeps happening right at that moment (makes it look like I'm avoiding them and then making up lame excuses). Wondering if something's changed with Firestorm recently. Can't do the Jira thing - no idea how to talk 'techaneze', much less read it.
  8. Actually - never mind - was able to leave group only by going into Comm>Groups>Name of Group> then clicking 'leave' on the right hand side. Hair pulling event has now ended...nothing to see here....move along, folks.
  9. Title says it all, really. There were only ever 2 members in the first group I created and it's only been me now for either some weeks (or several days at the very least - I didn't take notes and time is mind-bending in SL) - no property is deeded to it. It's a bit frustrating when you're the last member of own group, but you can't leave it so it can be disbanded (Warning! Warning! Danger Will Robinson! Oh, the horror!). Might this be a ticket submission thing?
  10. Streaming Media was working fine in SL viewer, but installed Firestorm yesterday and can't get it to work on my parcel. I've googled the problem, checked and double checked anything I could find on the subject (not much available), and gone over my settings time and again, but all I've achieved is a headache. Media works fine when visiting other areas when I click 'allow', though - I just can't get it to work on my turf. I can hit 'start all' (it's not greyed out) and silence reigns supreme. Music and media boxes are checked. Volume is set. URL's are in place. I've absolutely no idea what else to check. Does anyone have any tricks up their sleeve they might be willing to share please? *Edit: Everything checks out as per here and it even says it's 'playing' but it's not. Internet Security (Kaspersky) is not blocking slplugin.exe and appears to be functioning normally in task manager (all 4 of them). Also followed the advice as per
  11. Yes, this virtual reality is still very much active, albeit a little quiet here and there. I'm sure it's just a like the eye of a storm - the quiet before the onslaught.
  12. So glad I saw this post. I have LM 18 partitioned on my machine with Win 10 and was wanting to install SL on the Linux side (because having to use any Microsoft product it just irks me on principle). Guess I won't be doing that any time soon, though. Thanks for all the detailed info!
  13. I'm no expert, but this is what works for me when that happens: Put your cursor over the little speaker icon on the top right of the SL UI and untick 'media'. Sometimes both 'media' and 'music' are ticked at the same time - doing this is what fixes the overlap for me. Hope it helps
  14. Meanwhile, 5 years after this post was started, and I wish we had the option to completely remove local chat - for those of us who find it a major source of aggravation. Tired of the irritating flashing orange tab when I'm really not interested in dozens people talking gibberish at each other - especially not when trying to focus on other things in-world. Also makes it hard to chat with friends and acquaintances in private group chat because when local chat starts up, you have to keep track of which tab you're in. Not a great system. Considering we can 'x' out (remove) other conversations entirely, why not local chat? Why is that forced on us?
  15. I don't mind the 'learning curve' at all because I've discovered that once you learn something - however big or small - you never forget it (unless, like me, you've been away for while but then you pick it all up again fairly quickly), particularly if you keep notes for the more seemingly complicated things. It really depends on how much a person wants to do in SL. If they just want to explore the world, rent their own pad, and have a bit of fun as a 'tourist', then the basics are fine, but if they want to be creative, then I'm sure most would find the learning curve worth the effort.
  16. All good - sorted. I think it was just a bit of lag at the time
  17. First few days? Magical. That's the only word I can use to describe my initial impression of SL. Of course, there was the initial 'horror' of seeing my new and very awkward-moving avi, but that was easily remedied. That was back in '06 after seeing a story about SL on some current affairs program, which was focused on talking about Anshe Chung having made her first million USD with 'pixel real estate'. Now I'm back again with a partner this time, dancing our feet off as often as we can at Etosha or Muddies - or going on those oh-so-stunning boat tours in Calas Galadhon, or even just sightseeing if neither one of us is throwing ourselves into learning curves at the Builder's Brewery. But yes, 'magical' will always spring to mind when I think of my first few days in SL.
  18. This has just quite suddenly happened to me. Logged into SL about half an hour ago and am still a white, wafty, ball of light - my body is simply not rezzing in. I'm using Kaspersky security and haven't had this problem before but here's a screen shot: 
  19. Please forgive my noob question but I purchased a complete avatar, opened the box, added contents to the inventory, clicked 'wear' and...nothing. My avi is still in her beginner's body. Am I doing something wrong or have I missed a step or two somewhere along the line?
