  1. I reckon the correct option is E. The person who asks moron-level questions in Tech Discussions that should be directed at the ANSWERS section of the forums which is for n00bs and the like who don't have the first idea and are too lazy to look for solutions themselves.
  2. This is probably why the forums login is currrently screwed. Someone messed with it to accomodate access to the Place Pages and, as with most things SL do, never got it tested by real users.
  3. I have heard that Club Soho is the unfriendliest club in SL, playing the worst music, with so many bots hanging around that there is terrible lag, The rumours say that management rip off the workers and their communication skills are non-existent.
  4. It is difficult to test for something when obfuscating euphemisms have to be circumnavigated. There is actually no such thing as "race" - other than the human race - but political correctness demands that references to skin colour, religion, sex, shape or size of ass, nose or eyelids and other differentiating factors that have become stereotypically associated with cultural (or otherwise) groups are aggregated in a nonsensical taxonomical classification. I will stick to being stupidist, even if it means being called racist, sexist or discriminatory, the last of which used to be a good thing.

There are limits to how much LL can do to work around its problems. Hence the continuing sagas of corruption of user identity files replicated across only semi-compatible systems

As Botgirl Questi, William Shakespeare and the Department of Homeland Security would probably confirm, names are an irrelevance; identities are much more interesting.

Professional content creators have no choice but to accept LL's ToS. That's SL's ToS. Sansar's will be different. I think LL has already stated that but it goes without saying. They want design studios and architect bureaus to use Sansar as a virtual showroom for their products. Freelancers can choose whether they trust LL not to abuse those extensive rights or not, big companies can't. Bait and switch. (Like Trump)
  10. Parhelion Palou wrote: A couple comments: LL wants companies for customers (who will want to get in on the VR goggle hype). Companies rent, hire creators to build the game or whatever, then the company advertises it on their own website and provides a link to the experience. As you said, they'll have full control over registration. I suspect they'll also be able to control the avatar appearance as well, since it would be problematic for a company with an experience for kids to have inappropriate avatars popping in. I haven't heard that experiences/worlds can be connected in a way that allows walking or vehicles to travel between them. It'll basically be a portal that loads the next experience for you. If you could travel to or even see into other experiences it could affect the all-important framerate -- adding complexity that the experience's pre-publish optimizer couldn't deal with. Subleasing isn't likely unless the experience owner is renting out pre-built areas. Ebbe's example: An experience owner creates a neighborhood with houses to rent. The renter gets their own experience to represent the inside of the house. They can then decorate the interior as they wish. The door to the house would be the portal to go back and forth between the renter's experience and the landlord's experience. The renter won't be able to do anything with the exterior since they'd have to have permissions to do the mods off-line. I plan to check out Sansar, but only as something to visit occasionally. Sounds massively dull to me, although obviously it is a perfect set up for creating a brothel palace.
  11. SL Safe Spaces? So the SJWs have definitely arrived in SL! What next, automatic correction of all amorous exclamations from "Oh God" to "Insh'Allah"?

I believe the regulars there find much apparently nicer and self-aggrandising ways to tell you "no", and if you are lucky they may even copy and paste something from an outdated and unmaintained official information source to substantiate their advice.

  14. ChinRey wrote: But if your interpretation is correct, there are two probelsm LL needs to sort out. One is IP protection. That is one of the biggest letdowns for professional content creators who consider working in SL. There is no problem. LL has already sorted it out. LL owns ALL intellectual property in their domains. Professional content creators have no choice but to accept LL's ToS.

  16. Does this suggest that LL is removing further resources from SL maintenance to try to catch up on the delayed Sansar development? We know that forum management has always been a very low priority to LL, and presumably Lithium have washed their hands of LL's pathetic implementation of their software. Whenever I see a problem with the forum signon (or the mysecondlife lashup) I presume that it's a result of LL's unavailing desperate and continuingly unsuccessful attempts to resolve the ongoing security problems with "single" sign-on and accurate verification and validation of users where user information databases have to be replicated outside the domain managed by the principal. Or maybe they are preparing to abandon these forums, in preparation for a new intra-communications paradigm associated with Sansar - what do you think THAT might be, given Ebbe's history of failed attempts at novel socialised interaction at previous employments?

Why else would we all be exploring and using a virtual world for several hours each day running businesses and the like unless we were mentally ill, retarded, disabled for whatever reason it may be. Speak for yourself. I don't bother going inworld, just descending on the forums every now and again when I am extremely bored with giving GCHQ a hand with their problems so I can feel superior to a different bunch of lamebrainers.
  20. Wayne: #1 I don't believe you and #2 I got bored finding errors after one paragraph. To say nothing about your apparent inability to understand the taxonomy of the forums.

  22. Wayne Bohemia wrote: Hi Folks. I am a young twenty-something year old creative writing and journalism student from Cambridge, England. I have been in Second life since 2006 and have mostly enjoyed having fun and well, persuing a much deserved and needed Second Life. I have experince working in Second life as a photographer and writer for the now vanished OMG! Magazine but most recently I have decided to start up a small newspaper myself which I have called "The Metaverse Courier" and it's first edition although very small is now finished and live at themetaversecourier.net and is all proof checked and ready for you to read and enjoy. I am currently looking for enthusiastic and likeminded indivduals who may be interested in helping me take this project further. I see a real potential for such a publication in Second Life following the demise of the simllar publication known as The Metaverse messenger some years ago. If you feel you have soemthing to give to the Metaverse Messenger be it that your a writer, photographer or anything really then please do get in touch with me in world or reply to this thread. I hope it's proofed better than your post. Maybe you should consider getting a grammar/spellchecker if you want to retain a smidgeon of credibility?

Could you provide us a coherent argument to justify your reading? Or is this simply an emotional reaction? It ain't just me thinking this sweetheart.
