  1. I'm very introverted. I live in the sky and spend all my time in SL engaged in solo pursuits.
  2. I love hearing other people's perspectives, thank you! Sometimes my mind gets stuck in a certain way of thinking and needs help to think outside it's little box lol. Everything you said makes perfect sense, and has shifted my views in a much more enjoyable direction. Going back to my mindless, grateful fishing now:):)
  3. If alts were not allowed but people still used them to fish, it would be unfair to people who use just their main to fish for this reason: Most landowners will put around 2k into their buoy during multipliers. This enables around 140 people to fish (14L per person) If each person were to use 4 alts to fish, only 35 people would be able to fish at the buoy (56L per 4 alts) So in effect, 100+ people would not be able to fish due to the use of alts. Those 100 people would then have to fish 9 buoys (four and a half hours of fishing) to earn the equivalent of what those using alts made in just 30 minutes at that one buoy.
  4. I am not triggered by alts lol I have alts myself. Now that I know most landowners don't care if people use alts while fishing it totally changes my point of view, since it is quite foolish for someone like me to fish with only one avatar if it is allowed to fish with more than one, since someone who fishes using four avatars simultaneously will be making 56L per buoy instead of 14L.
  5. Thank you for sharing your own experiences! That is something I wondered about for ages. I always feel really guilty fishing because I didn't understand what the landowner was receiving from it, I am definitely going to start tipping then, as I fish so often and don't feel right about taking people's money without giving anything in return. Especially knowing some just do it for the company - my goodness! That makes me feel even worse lol. I will definitely try to be more friendly when I'm fishing now, knowing that. At least contribute in a small way even if I can't afford to tip huge amounts.
  6. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond and answer my gazillion questions!:) This helps to clarify a lot for me, I will go back to enjoying my fishing and feeling incredibly grateful to landowners for the lindens and lovely surroundings. I appreciate this group so much! ♥
  7. What do landowners get from the increased traffic? I always wondered this because a lot of them are shelling out a ton of money into their fishing buoys to get traffic, and it would seem like they are losing money every day from having fishing on their land
  8. For some reason I have always been under the impression that it was not okay to use alts in fishing games. I think this may have been a misunderstanding. I really wish I knew this earlier because it took me 35 hours of fishing to save up for a tiny avatar recently, and had I fished with four avatars it would have only taken me 8 hours lol
  9. In looking at the terms of service for various fishing games, there does not appear to be any rule against using alts while fishing (except for Alienum which has auto ban in place as I state earlier). It seems like this would mean that one may fish with alts on any land that does not specifically state that you can't use them, since the game TOS does not mention anything about alts. Does anyone know if this is true or not?
  10. Do you think most landowners are of that mindset, they don't really care if people use alts when fishing? I'm now beginning to question whether it is even against the rules to use them or not - I am trying to look into this for each specific game now
  11. I'm not angry, I just saw a huge sign on someone's sim that said "NO ALTS" etc. and wondered if I should be reporting or not. I thought the landowner would want to know since they are the one who put up the sign but I won't worry about it anymore lol. Had I not seen that sign I would have assumed landowners are grateful for the traffic and don't care if half of the traffic consists of alts
  12. I'm also talking about alts that are very obvious from their names. Like one will be "benjavi", second is "benjava", third is "benjave" lol
  13. The landowner only has a certain amount of lindens to spend each day on the buoys though, so for example they might put in 400L, and if one person is using four alts they will drain that buoy very quickly, which means people like myself who are only using one avatar to fish with will not even get to fish at all.
  14. One of the games I play has set it up so that when you try to withdraw from the ATM, it directs you to a website which then uses your IP address to determine whether you are an alt of someone else and then automatically bans you if your IP address has already been used by another avatar. I wonder how difficult it would be to implement this as a game creator. Seems like it would prevent the alt issue.
  15. I spend a lot of time playing fishing games in SL. I have become very good at determining which people are using multiple alts while fishing. The people who are using alts while fishing are getting triple or quadruple the lindens the rest of us are getting, which leaves less lindens for those of us playing fairly. Is there any way to prevent alts from fishing simultaneously? Should I contact a landowner when it is obvious who is using alts?
