    I don't believe there's a rule, in SL, that disallows others to live  or build on a non-profit sim while contributing financially via other means.

    from non profit discount TOS wiki entry ( http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Education_and_Non-Profit_Discount_Terms_and_Conditions:

    • The Discounted Regions must be used for primarily non-commercial purposes. For avoidance of doubt, Discounted Regions (or any parts thereof) may not be subleased.

    it does not mention the methods of that leasing wether out- / or in-world

    What would be wrong with a project that allowed others to live on their sim if they contributed to the project financially via other methods?

    There have been court rulings in the past that reward driven crowdfunding campaigns can be considered a regular consumer transaction under certain cicumstances - with all the liabilities involved in those.

    PS: AFAIK France has one of the customer friendliest crowdfunding laws worldwide ...

    One person donated 1000 dollars, and I am sure it's not for a yearly rental, because no rental in HL would ever be that expensive.

    Oh yeah?

    Oh look here at the your own indiegogo campaign:


    Platinum Rooftop Lofts

    €1.000 EUR €2.000 (50% OFF)
    Exclusive access to one of the top 4 private rooftops & homes, 500LI & breathtaking views. These environments have been built especially to experiment a one of a kind immersion,I will personally assist you in this experience & I can also arrange it taylor made for you. You will get all my previously released environments and the ones to come.
    PS: If you look cloesly at the crowdfunding website you will notice one of the 1000 dollar rewards was claimed...

    Did any of you guys notice how some stores replaced isis with legacy?! Am so mad rn

    Give them time - they will drop TMP again, not sure they will then take up Isis again though :(

    Just vote with your wallet.

    Fiona can you point to the text where they called everything else inferior?

    No. The mudslinging is this incessant "No, this sim is just doomed like any other, because our own junk needs to be equal." .

    That' s just plain cold and dirty towards this sim to me.

    Be 'right'  all you want. I care not.

    with pleasure, emphasis mine

    With regard to Fatpacks: I miss the era where you actually had the option - at some stores - to get a discount on the fatpack if you'd already bought items that were part of it.

    Maybe modern vendour systems don't allow this anymore - I have seen some though who still offer this serrvice in the shop owner's profile.

    ... long wall of text ...

    You simply don't get it. It is not their rallying - more power to them if they rally for a good cause. It is because of the way they rally. They called everything else inferior.

    When this was first published I was hoping for HL to stay on the grid - but then they produced so much vitriol that I could not care less if they left the grid and took the agressive part of their supporters with them - I'd actually welcome it.

    Bizzarre thought, why not pick up the old houses off the old linden home lands and rework those continents since they already exist and put the new homes down there? Literally it'd make sense since they want to phase them out anyway, and it would help fill demand a lot faster. 

    Because that would be even more work I guess ...

    Ever since us italians stole pizza from the french, and set the holly pizza covenant that clearly says "Thou shall not put Pineapple on pizza, for it is an abomination of the pasta lords" So many food infidels insist on corrupting the belly busting creation.  

    Careful, people have put worse on pizza - for example pasta :D

    On a side note, I always roll my eyes when I tp someplace that has 8, 10 or even 15 thousand active scripts on the sim but they have a scanner that puts my name on some billboard of shame and pings me with a message like "Uh, if you could remove some of your scripted attachments to help reduce lag that would be greaaaat."

    Especially since those gadgets usually just count scripts - not script time - I have been named and shamed by people using one quarter of my scipt number but using almost double my script time, ... *sigh*

    Thanks. Odd that I missed discussion of LEA in the few years I’ve been on the forum (or saw it and didn’t understand).

    There was not much. All I remember was a thread a while back (1 to 2 years?) accusing LEA of being dysfunctional (like instead of giving new artists a chance we saw the same faces aagain and again) - shortly after the program was put on hold and this now seems to be the final conclusion. I have not been around long enough while LEA was still a thing so cannot judge for myself - but if the claims were right I'd say change was inevitable.

     Given the Lab's notorious lack of communication skill they might even have a replacement project up their sleeves and simply have forgotten to tell us so 9_9

     I know, right?  "Just because William Gibson, Venice Art Biennale, New World Notes, The Guardian and Oprah Winfrey support you, should we think you are worth?" LOL! Thank you for your support and appreciation!

    Those together sure have enough Dollars to save the Hangar Liquides sims ... where is your problem then?

    I expected the announcement to be about LEA's replacement. For all its problems*, without LEA no new SL artist will have the kind of growth opportunities it afforded them over its years of existence.

     Disappointing, but I, too, don't see its closing linked with any larger trend. (Although, to be honest, I have a nagging hunch that the lack of a replacement was a decision subconsciously influenced by the sunk cost fallacy pumping ever more Sansar blood on the balance sheet.)

    * And how many reshuffled Bryn Oh regions does one need to see, really?

    The artists might get encouraged to head over to SANS - not working with your OS - AR ;)

     Oh ... you mean opensim as Inworldz ( Islandz ) who has shut down  for "financial issues" ? :D :D  Not a good idea

    Opensimulator is a technology, Inworldz just was one company using it.

    Djehan could easily conserve the Hangars Liquides cluster on a private Opensimulator  'server'* but apparently doesn't want to. Maybe running it on a grid that is owned by a company that will not hesitate to shut it down once money stops flowing just adds to the angst of the dystopian concept...

    Many contemporary art is doomed to expire - it's part of the concept - for a famous example see here.

  15. There are lots of pastel coloured outfits inspired by Japanese culture - however you have to keep in mind they often are buildt for specific avatars. Maybe it is best for your wallet to do some window shopping first before settling on a body with a support for the outfit styles you prefer.

    I typically stick to the region day cycle but I'm probably a minority.

    I think that would be smart as it over time reveals lots of bad seams and stuff but all the self important people seem to use calwl and seem really surprised when you don't as well ;)
