  1. I asked in their inworld group and one of the main support members had no idea what I was talking about lol
  2. A couple months ago I switched from the Firestorm viewer to the Catznip viewer because it was a lot easier on lag. I overall love this viewer but there is one thing I cannot figure out. I mistakenly created my current shape using the default shape in the folder for my head, and I'd like to make it full perm so I can send it to my alts and vice versa. I already figured out how to save it onto my laptop but what I can't figure out is how to import it onto a newly created shape. Does anyone who uses the Catznip viewer know how to do this? and if so how?
  3. It's gotten to where its an instant turn-off for me. I don't care how well I know you can write an emote, if you have your title in your display name I'm gonna NOPE myself in a completely different direction 😂
  4. I know I talked about this in the old Peeve thread, but people who put their titles in their display name Master Bob, Mistress Gina, Goddess Veronica, Sir Matt ( These aren't actual names of people, just examples) I know you're allowed to make your display name whatever you want but just, Gaaaaaaah, this one is so cringy it hurts!
  5. Natural hair color packs that don't include a black color AM I NOT NATURAL TO YOU!?
  6. I would LOVE to see more same sex couple dances, and just new couple dances in general
  7. I avoid stores that charge for demo's. I've always had this theory that only bad stores charge for demo's
  8. Who ever originally made those two gestures, I like to think theirs a special place in Dante's Inferno waiting just for them
  9. No actually its not. The how do you look today thread is still around, threads only get locked when people either start drama or refused to stay on tye topic the thread is about
  10. To get this thread back on track People who leave me messages, whether it be on Facebook, SL, Discord, WHEREEVER that are abviously meant to intimidate me, but then they block you so you can't respond to it.....
  11. To add to this, people who will blame everyone else for what goes wrong in their life when its obvious its their own actions that are making things go wrong
  12. So about a week or so ago I downloaded the Alchemy viewer after it was revealed that it had been updated with Bakes on Mesh and Animesh and so far I have loved it, but I have one question that I really need answered. I've noticed that when people take snapshots, I will get a notification, both as a toast on the upper right hand corner and in local chat that reads " -insert name here- has just taken a screenshot!". At first I didn't mind this, but I'm realizing, especially at events and gatherings where people are talking in local, that its become a HUGE annoyance and I was wondering if there was a setting that I could turn that off, and if so, will you please tell me where it's at? I've asked this question for days in the Alchemy group inworld, I've asked on Facebook and I even joined their discord today and hours later still haven't gotten a response If anyone knows how to fix this I would be forever grateful! Thanks in advance ❤️
  13. Hopping on to see my two year old thread has been locked 😭😭😭 In all honesty though, I'm surprised it lasted that long lol
  14. -pokes her head in, notices the thread is still alive and she's about 20 pages behind, *bleep*'s off for another couple weeks- 😂😂😂
  15. I've tried several different virtual platforms, Yo-ville, Smallworlds, BUildabearville when I was a kid, CLub Penguin, IMVY, Habbo Hotel, War Bears ( Another one I used as a kid) But ever since i started getting on SL, I havent really tried any others sense because none even compare. I tried Sinescape for about 2 days, because it as Elements that are very similar to SL but that didn't even stick
  16. So I use Gmail for all of my SL and gaming stuff, and since I have notifications turned on for this place, this threads notification emails get maxed out at 100, and thats happened a total of 3 times today alone. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not complaining about it at all! But I am gonna set it to where I only get one email per day for this thread just to keep it from cluttering my inbox, so if for whatever reason you all need to contact me, shoot me a direct message! I still have it set to where I get email notif's about those Keep on peeving y'all! LOL
  17. I relate to this all too well, ESPECIALLY of the summer time, I live on the country side, in a small town where some of my neighbors have race cars, so all through summer I hear engines revving as people work on them, as well as Go carts. motorcycles, three wheelers, kids screaming, dogs barking. its just a few of MANY things I've learned to sleep through LOL
  18. This is more of a RL peeve, but this thread has become a peeve page for both RL and SL peeve's so here we go Video Game sites that make it abso-f******ing-lutely impossible to get a refund/ cancel an order. With the Last of Us part 2 coming out here in a couple weeks I wanted to pre-order it so I can get it the day its released so I can avoid spoilers (Well aside from the leaks, I already seen those lol). Well I wanted a physical copy, but it didn't give me an option to choose between the two so naturally I assume its a physical copy. I get it ordered when I notice in the thank you note it says "Thank you for your purchase. It will be available for download on the 19th"..... I just spent a f*cking hour trying to figure out how to cancel it so I could order a physical copy because they don't make it easy to figure out *lets out a deep loud cry of pain and frustration*
  19. I had that sort of drama with someone at the beginning of the year. Everytime I gave them a chance to clear the air, they instead used it to slander and harass me, every single time so I get that. If you two can't get along why not just block each other and be done with it finally?
  20. I dunno the history between you two, I won't pretend otherwise but making peeves that are jabs towards one another seems counter productive, no disrespect intended. Have you tried maybe sitting down and talking it out???
  21. Alright I fixed the issues with the post, hopefully lol. I still have 14 more hours to edit this so if you all see anything else wrong with it, quote the area in your responses and underline it so I can see it.
  22. Hi all, thanks for the feedback! When I made this post I had posted it to Facebook first and, since it was entirely well received I didn't see the issues you all are pointing out with me calling them alts instead of Scammer accts. I've already fixed the titles but I've only been awake about 20 minutes so when I get more woke up I will go back and fix the wording of the thread.
  23. It's common knowledge that alts/ multiple accounts are a popular thing to have in Second Life. Whether it be for photography, blogging, making poses, roleplay characters, the reasons for having alternative accounts are endless, but unfortunately they aren't all created with the best of intentions. With scammers being an ever posing threat, with them finding new and sneakier ways to steal your info and accounts, it can be really hard to tell who is actually new to the platform and who has created one to clear their tracks and continue with their nasty tactics. I've been on the platform for a while and I have several accounts of my own, have friends who also have some and have encountered people who have a few as well, so I wanted to share a couple things I thought would make spotting them just a little easier. Now keep in mind these are not set in stone methods to tell and of course, not everyone who falls under the things I'll tell you to pay attention to will be scammers, unfortunately, there isn't a concrete way to tell, these are simply things to look out for. I am going to be focusing on people who use alts for ill intent (Stealing your info/ Lindens, harassment, stalking etc) and just things to keep an eye on if you feel someone you may have had a bad experience is trying to come back into your life as a stranger. Here are some things to keep an eye on if you suspect someone may be a scammer or stalker: Pay attention to the usernames. Scammers oftentimes don't bother changing their usernames beyond a couple numbers (Example Kevin2334, Kevin1236, etc) So odds are if that name looks familiar, then its probably because it is. Also if they have a username like Blueberrygiftcard, Addamsfreebiegiver, etc, it's obviously a scammer. Content creators in SL do not have accounts named like this! if they do give out gifts its usually through there official subcrib-o-matics, Groups or inworld at their stores or Marketplaces Look at the age of the profile. Scammers will only use an account for about a week before going and making a new one (usually because they've gotten banned from the popular stores, clubs, group, etc etc) So if someone is begging for L$ for something or is IMing you out of the blue claiming they found you from a group or sim and their account is only a couple days old, be weary Pay attention to profile pictures. Now admittedly this is a hit or miss way to tell if someone is a scammer or someone who is using a new account to stalk you. People pay others to do their pictures for them all the time. Just keep an eye out for a sort of pattern. Is their skin the same quality of that person you used to talk to? Are the angles similar? Does the shape look close enough? Is the quality of the picture the same? Now finding scammer accounts on social media's like FB or Twitter, for example, is a little easier, so this next list is going to be things to look out for when looking for scammers on Facebook, Avatlife, twitter, etc: Pay attention to how people talk when they make a post. EVERYONE has a certain way they word things when they make a post on social media and this can be the easiest way they out themselves. If you suspect someone you had blocked or removed has added you on another account, look for mannerisms that were common to that person If they have other social media links on their profile, look at those to see if they have posted anything that was the same as that person. Now I'm not talking about shared posts or memes. I'm talking about similar pictures they've taken, Product WIPS, maybe they posted a picture that you know is them or that they took. Look at where the person is located. Again this one can be a hit or miss type deal but it's still worth noting. If they are from the same country then it may not be them, but if they are from the same state or even the same city, then it could be. If they were a former creator and you think they are coming back on another account, then pay attention to the quality of their products. Each store has a signature quality to them, whether it be the textures, the shaping, the shadows, etc. For example Stealthic has a very distinct look, so does Doux, Blueberry, Vinyl, N-core. Just because they are under a different name, doesn't mean the quality of their work will be any different. I feel a need to repeat this. NONE OF THESE ARE 100% CONCRETE WAYS TO CATCH SOMEONE ON A SCAMMER ACCOUNT OR SOMEONE WHO IS USING AN ACCOUNT TO STALK OR HARASS YOU, these are simply things to keep an eye out for if you think someone is not who they say they are. All in all, just be careful who you trust. On a virtual world were people can be whoever or whatever they want, it never hurts to keep your guard up, If you know of some other things to look out for then please list them down below Please keep the responses to this thread and to one another respectful ❤️
