  1. Hi, so has anyone else had the issue of their firestorm viewer randomly freezing for a second and then closing itself out? It is becoming really common and sometimes it happens minutes apart some sometimes it wont do it for an hour or so but it does always happen. I never get a crash message or anything it simply just poofs and closes itself. This is the only program on my computer that does this, I have already tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling firestorm. Has this happened to you? How did you fix it? Any knowledge or tips would be appreciated.
  2. This is an idea I think some people could really get behind. It would be cheaper than full premium and include key features that the everyday player would want. I mentioned in another post that a lot of people are tempted to get premium purely to help them get into events a bit easier or for the groups. If there was a cheaper alternative like this one I think it would pick up some addition premium members and maybe bring back a few members that decided to drop their premium status.
  3. As I said for some things it is nice. Sometimes you can absolutely make it work and for some things you are going to need the community help. I am not familiar with your business by looking at your name so I am not sure what exactly it is but I am thrilled it works for you and that you have the time and availably to speak with each of your customers individually when needed but that is not a luxury every creator has. In all actuality for some creators talking to each person and handling everything all on their own is very unrealistic.
  4. @Blush Bravin @Blueberryxx I am not a creator but as a consumer I can say that yes subscribing is nice for some things but at the end of the day sometimes it just has to be a group. You cant ask a subscribe tool why you didn't have a certain body rigging isn't in a clothing folder, you can not ask why your product may not be working correctly, and you can not ask a subscribe tool for suggestions and comments on things. People can not expect customers to go to a main store to look for a bored listing CSR for them maybe to be online or for them to maybe have time for you. These people are busy with various things all the time so we rely on each other as a community for help and that is an amazing thing. From a consumer I have to completely agree that groups are indeed necessary.
  5. I agree that all of these concepts are hard for new users to grasp BUT I have to say I find that older members find them much harder to grasp because it is not just getting a handle on the game but it is basically relearning a game you feel you already put the work of learning into. New users are more willing to change because they are going in the with expectation of learning a game. I can tell you that when I had found SL a few years back if I would have seen that I would have had to pay for it I would have kept scrolling and I think a lot of people would. You need a free membership but you also need real incentive for them to switch over. Under no circumstances should you further limit what basic users who have already been here all these years are getting (They are your faithful members and a large amount of them are pouring their RL money into Linden Lab's real wallet). Consider only knocking down what new registering members are getting. People do not take kindly to having things taken away. Be mindful that not all basic accounts are forever-noobs that do not contribute. I have met many residents that did have premium for a period of time and then decided it wasn't worth it to them and they dropped it for a while. Just because someone is not forking up a whole $10 a month (Which really isn't all that much at all.) does not mean they are not putting out much much more than that supporting their own shopping habits. I have watched non-premium members drop $100-$200 or more a month just for shopping and then more for their land. Of course you can say well we have to raise the prices on things because of new plans being made and new things happening which is 100% understandable but I see people using the new Linden Homes as an example here but be mindful that not all premium users have access to them right now and thus are paying for other users new perks and not their own. There was an idea somewhere in another post suggesting different levels of premium. Some people really only get premium to make it easier on themselves getting into shopping events. Basic should remain because that is how you get new people to play and a percentage of those new people will become premium.. I am not sure a month free is going to cut it. I think two levels of premium would even suffice, you could have one geared towards your everyday users and then one geared more towards business owners and people who make their RL money from SL more regularly.
  6. So when you choose to become pregnant on your own, because im pretty sure that is an option, what week does that start on? Does it jump you to the weeks you would be when you find out? Does it start you at week 1? Is it green when you hit it or does it stay white for a while if you start at week 1?
