  1. That is the problem with most in SL, they just want to wank off, then go climb into bed next to their wife as if nothing happened. Those are wham bam guys. Gentlemen that know how to control their libido rarely exist in SL anymore, the ones that enjoyed taking the time to know you, woo you & then you end up with them for a few years at least...they are dinosaurs and already taken by women smart enough to know to keep them.
  2. This is the type of advice that causes the said drama you are supposedly trying to avoid. Just saying.
  3. Then you need to just be honest and tell your friend they aren't really your friend because all you are interested in is having fun and you obviously don't care about their feelings or the time they have invested in you. You are coming off as if everything is all about you and if that is how you want it you need to be upfront about it. Drama is a part of everything, RL or SL, there is no escaping it unless you want to be a hermit living on your build pad with no friends crying because you're lonely, even though you caused it. So, what do you want an actual friend or just to f*ck around and pretend all day? Don't let people think you actually care if you don't & don't call people your friends if they really aren't.
  4. Wow, I wouldn't take advice from someone that sounds like she has people pissing in her cheerios all day if I were you, Joe. Someone has obviously *****ed her up a lot in SL or even RL maybe as well. The best advice is to just do you. Write what you feel & take your time when getting to know someone, the majority of women actually prefer honesty over pretending you feel or don't feel this or that. Simple as that. If you take the jaded know it all's advice you will be very unhappy, you know, just like she sounds.
  5. LL constantly blames creators not knowing how to make mesh properly as one of the reasons for lag, etc & here they are giving us mesh from them that is badly made. I mean, come on.
  6. Their sim, their rules, stupid or not. SL is about living it the way you want & that is how they want it, it's pretty simple. It's all fake anyway. Most of those women jump from alt to alt going from Dominant to submissive, male to female, sadist to daddy, etc. It is so rare to find anyone being their true selves in SL that honestly even using the word "friend" to describe someone you know in SL is really pushing it in my opinion.
  7. I see yours just fine as well. But, I have a friend that can see mine from one of his accounts but his alt can't see it. LoL No idea why it happens.
  8. Running a store takes a lot of time and dedication so I run mine on my main avatar. Hailee here is for when I want to sit down & discuss things with other adults without having to worry about childish person attacking my store (has happened) because my views don't match theirs, etc..
  9. Good point, that is true. I think my brain went along a crazy wavy trail of they just got tired of running it. lol
  10. *Since by the time I made it through the thread it had turned into a commission fee argument, I will add my thought on that first & then everything else under that. *In regards to the coming marketplace commission fees. I think it should be based on each individuals sales. Some merchants make thousands of US dollars a month & others may only make a few dollars. It's hardly fair for it to be the same flat fee for everyone just my opinion. As to possible changes, I went through & used all the ones I agree with in order of importance to my own experience: 1. The ability to ban a customer from our marketplace front as we can inworld. (would pay a higher premium membership fee for this ability alone) Edited to add: Though the reason it will probably never happen is the same as listed below in #13. 2. Please fix the keyword listings. Just saying that the item has been added to the adult category because of a keyword problem but not telling me what the word or words are is in no way helpful & can take hours of going through word by word until you find the problem & which usually makes no sense. 3. The ability to get re-deliveries for copy items. Someone had mentioned that alongside the 'Add to Cart' & 'Buy As Gift' buttons there could be another button 'Redeliver Previously Purchased Item. 4. The ability to change something on every listing at once or singularly. Someone had mentioned an editable field for policies used on every listing so you don't have to paste them in every description. 5. Bulk upload of images. 6. More than one store front per avatar 7. Ability to bulk edit Slurl. 8. A gacha category 9. The ability to add a store manager option who can edit & create listings & do re-deliveries from the web page. 10. The ability to favorite designers/stores & to go even further to then be able to save your favs from them under the favorite listing. The way everything is all piled into one favorites folder now makes it impossible to find things easily. 11. The ability to make a Wish list others can buy for me from. Once bought, the item is removed from the list & you're notified of a gift. 12. More flagging options. Personally anyone should be able to flag copyrighted items & they should be reviewed & taken down with or without a DMCA being filed because sometimes it's clearly copybotted, such as people using Disney or other big name brands. Leaving illegal items up until the holder of a copyright comes forward is NOT an appropriate way of dealing with something illegal when you KNOW it's not allowed. Personally I'm not sure how LL can't still be held liable if they knew but did nothing until they were contacted. I would think that is risky. 13. Someone had also mentioned deleting merchants who no longer have an account or have not logged in for more than a year. That is a great idea, but, not one I think LL will ever implement. LL makes money off of every single sale whether that person logs in or not. That's also why I think they leave up store fronts on avatars they have banned from SL, because they make money off of them indefinitely. Something to note, if banned you can't cash that L$ out for RL $ either because you can't access your web page to sell the L$ to be able to do so. Keep that in mind if you normally let your L$ build to high amounts before cashing out. Same goes for if LL were to suddenly close SL, L$ balance is lost, only what was cashed out to your US dollar balance will be refunded, at least that is what I have always heard.
  11. In the old days there was a drop-down menu with a lot of last names to pick from (you choose your own first name). If I couldn't find a last name I liked to go with the first name I wanted I would just sit & hit refresh ever so often to get a new set of last names to choose from, could do that a few times before it went right back to the original list they had shown me. The best part of last names coming back for me is the fun of coming up with a first name no one in SL has ever had & then finding the coolest last name possible. Sometimes waiting & trying a few days in a row to get more choices before settling on one. It stopped being fun when they took away the last names. I to agree anyone with the last name of Resident should get one free name change, it's only fair since it wasn't their choice to get stuck with it.
  12. Hi all, since the introduction of Bento on the grid I have been having an issue that I can't quite figure out. When I am animating a piece of furniture (I use Avsitter & have for years) I can set the male & female animation in a couples pose & it looks fine. I dump the info, add it to the AVpos note card & retest & my avatars body breaks. It contorts into a weird back broken stance & won't change until I hit un-deform avatar. That fixes me until I run through the animations again & it breaks again. It's not always the same animation causing it either. It's weird I can put a totally different animation in and it will break in the same place. Some people see it break for them as well & others do not. I'm at a loss as to how to fix it. In my 8 years, I've never encountered this issue & it only happens if I have bento animations in my furniture, but, I can't be the only person not using Bento on the grid. Any ideas on how to fix it? I took off my ankle lock, all my huds to do with head or body & my AO. Still happens. Is it possible that it was uploaded wrong or something?

  14. You can choose which users can purchase from your marketplace store. Example: If you have had to ban someone inworld for whatever reason you can then also take away their right to purchase items from you on the marketplace. It would help keep people from attacking a merchants livelihood over personal issues, like an ex or troll, etc. Also the choice to have your items rated or not would be a nice addition.
  15. I think a creator should be able to choose to allow reviews of their item or allow no reviews for their items. It doesn't matter how well you word your description or how many times you tell someone to please try a demo first 98% of the customers are just to lazy to read or follow directions. If they did read and follow directions then almost all of the problems they end up complaining about wouldn't be a problem because they would have known before they bought the item that they didn't like it. But, you can bet your sweet bum they won't blame themselves for their own laziness, but they will blame the creator. It also doesn't usually matter how nice a creator is to a customer, 99.9% of the time, said customer is going to be rude and disrespectful. Most don't even contact the seller to say they have a problem and give a chance to have it rectified, they just slap a bad review up on the marketplace and walk away and even if contacted by the creator and given a refund, most don't ever even say thank you or remove the bad review, because they just don't care. This is what you need to remember...they don't care about anything or anyone but themselves. If you want to actually make decent RL money in SL you have to take it all with a smile, keep your mouth shut, your opinion to yourself and act like they are always right. Otherwise your reputation goes in the gutter.
  16. 5 Years. Until the night his RL wife walked in on us on voice having "fun" together and gave him the RL or SL ultimatum in some very colorful, not so child friendly language. I try and stay away from married men now. lol
  17. I have it turned on all the time unless I go somewhere really laggy, then I will turn it off until I leave.
  18. I get all warm and fuzzy when I remember back to when I first started SL and things were all bright and shiny and new. Before I got hurt a lot, before I found that trust was a rare thing here, before everything went t*ts up and I got so jaded that SL is barely worth logging into anymore. I miss my rose colored glasses....
  19. People can be and are deceptive on any and all internet sites (not just SL) and even in real life. SL is not some special place holding the record for that. Unlike most places on the internet though, SL gives you the added bonus of visually seeing to whom you're speaking, that is about the only difference. Muting and banning is the easiest way to deal with anyone crossing your boundaries, just like on any other online site. But, who are we to judge who, what, when, where and how people should meet others or fall in love? Not out job.
  20. I think there is possibly a third reason for a creator to make their furniture phantom and that is simply personal preference. As long as the furniture is modifiable, it can be made unphantom easily. If phantom furniture is such a horrible thing to contend with for someone they can always go demo said furniture before purchase or ask to demo it if there is no demo inworld and if the creator won't take the time to let you demo it, then it's really not worth getting anyway IMO. Also, I don't see why someone being proud to show that they can make a beautiful item for only one prim is considered having an ego. If someone puts time, effort and care into something they do whether it be building, emoting, etc., they should be proud of it. To me, having an ego would fall more into the acting like your sh**t don't stink or you're better than everyone else, but that is just my opinion.
  21. It's been years since I've been pulled into something so quickly and so deeply that I literally had held my breath reading. You two prove there is still hope and life out there...sighs happily and awaits the next installment with eager anticipation...and a bowl of popcorn..grins
  22. Make sure you make your alt an owner as well in case you ever accidentally delete yourself from the group your alt then can re-add you as an owner. I know, it doesn't sound like it would happen often, but, it's happened to me and a friend a couple of times. Thinking we had a group highlighted I pressed delete and then realized I had accidentally highlighted the wrong group..duh...panic sets in until you remember your alt can re-add you. lol
  23. Even if they are banned or their account is deleted if you have the ability to add someone to the access list on the about land tab inworld, it will find their name and from there you can click their name and get their profile so you can IM them. I do it all the time if I can't find someone by using the search feature, even if I know they closed their accounts cause you never know they may come back again, just saying.
  24. I personally prefer that items be phantom, there is nothing more annoying than walking through a place and getting stuck because ten items around you are all set to non phantom and you have to devise an escape plan just to get around it all or standing up from an item and being thrown across the room like the furniture thinks you have cooties or something (and yes the launching does still happen on occasion.) That being said, every creation is the vision of the builder so it's their choice whether it's phantom or not and most places have display models you can check out before you buy things and if they don't most creators are really kind and if asked nicely don't mind setting an item out for you to check out or at the very least could tell you whether or not it was set to phantom.
