  1. If you wouldn't mind clarifying your view it may help me or others that ever read this understand your point and method of thinking about this and maybe see things in a different perspective. I am always open to learn new things. I will admit I can be obtuse about some things at times.
  2. As someone who does understand scripts, I can understand your concern about this and your worry about the script load and possible lag it might cause by not being able to remove certain things. Thus possibly negatively affecting sim performance and affecting others enjoyment of the sim. But that is part of the D/s relationship giving up that choice if was so agreed to at the time of starting the relationship. For those who do not like that being done, well they need to discuss it with their Dom/me before getting into the relationship of either not blocking inventory or not locking attachments. Make it a limit to what is accepted in the relationship. communication is key here. As toward does it have a use outside of kink yes. it could be used by a parent to punish a child for misbehaving, locking the inventory and blocking attaching of items as a form of keeping the child from playing with their toys. It's not just about keeping the sub naked and thus limited to only 'A' rated sims. Such a warning is sort of pointless for not everyone would ever read it and would just hit ok. And a lot of those within the D/s do know about the scripts in the items and wearing a lot might cause lag issues for themself or others. Not everyone no, but those who have been doing it for a while do and often take the time to limit the impact as best as possible. Yet you will find those that don't care and never will. So the warning would mean nothing to them. Towards over use of scripts well that becomes the sim owners responsibility to set what they decide is acceptable limits and then have them enforced in whatever way they see fit. and then the users either comply or get booted and possibly banned and have to go someplace else. Rlv/a is completely consensual and not everyone in D/s even uses it. Some see it as more a hindrance to the relationship and not an enhancement. For those people this entire topic is moot. I do have a curiosity to the concern if it's just about the script load or if you are a sub that wears a collar and uses this to get around inventory blocks and now is worried that your owner might learn that they do have a way to prevent it. Because you seem adamant about it not being done, more than just a normal creator or scripter would be. It wouldn't say that they don't deserve a dominant, i would say that perhaps the dominant they had was not the right one for them. For there are dominants that would just see this a welcomed challenge by the brat and would find other ways of dealing with it then just releasing them. It becomes more a matter of patience and tolerance of the Dom/me and if they were really the right one for the task of taking on a brat of that caliber. Not every Dom/me is. it takes a special sort of Dom/me to handle a brat like that. One that is willing to put in the time and effort to see to the brats needs and not think that the brat is just there for their needs. To understand why the brat is acting that way and then what needs to be done about it, either more attention or setting some sort of punishment or some sort of task to keep the brat occupied so they won't feel the need to do that to poke at the Dom/me patience. Remember its a two-way street. Saying stop or else attempts to make it a one-way street which often does not end well when dealing with a brat or a willful sub It really boils down to how well the brat and dominant discussed their relationship on what was acceptable or tolerable behaviours and what would be considered over the limit for either party. A Dom/me that just blocks inventory or locks attachments just because they can may not deserve the brat/sub that they have. communication is the key.
  3. Ah but you are forgetting about Brats, brats like to disobey at times. so to say anyone that cheats doesn't deserve a dom/me is pretty limited way of thinking. Not all sub's obey all the time either just because they have a dom/me that may expect them to or has commanded them to. It is part of the dynamic of dealing with that and why they might have chosen to not obey. Its a two way street, not just the dom/me's way or the highway. it's the dom/me's that act in that manner that often have sub's that just leave them for being domineering at that point. I'm a brat by nature. I tend to find things that make things interesting. I am sometimes a sassy, snarky brat too so I keep any owner on their feet. And that was the meaning of this post, to make owners and other subs or brats be aware of these things. A brat has to keep things fun and interesting and what better way then to find ways around restrictions imposed by rlv. Teaching the owner that rlv should just be a tool and not the core of the relationship all the time like it is for some. Revealing this was to in a means test the dom/me's out there. to see who can handle this and who cannot. Any dom/me worth being collared to should be able to deal with it and not lose their temper about it or they don't really deserve the brat or sub that they tried to take on. I had Domme that did that for me once. She helped me out of a problematic relationship and issue I was having at that time. I chose to allow her to make a request of me at some later date and time of her choice for helping me with that as repayment for her help. She even became my owner for a short time, but unfortunately rl keeps her too busy for her to be on sl much anymore. Your testing the waters with that one restriction, and seeing if they will at least try for more than a day. that is completely understandable if either you or they were seeking or considering a possible longer term relationship. I have seen many that just jump in and jump out.. and I have seen many that just go balls to the wall with every restriction at the first chance and then leave them and expect the sub to just stay that way for days with little to no interaction as well. for a brat like me such extreme restrictions or long term with little contact brings out my snarky side the next time they see me. Most cant handle it at that point. I didn't mean to seem like you were domineering maybe. Its just I have had a few that were..and it brings out the sassy/snarky side of me quickly when ever I think about it and what they tried to have me do..and some of the things I did do in those past times because of not knowing myself or my limits or my rights better. It makes me a little defensive at times when those feelings or memories come up. There was a time I couldn't or I should say wouldn't runaway...because I believed it was wrong to do. That if I did I was a failure because that is what I had been made to think and believe. So there was no talking to my first Domme about things she did I didn't like... which is sort of why I can be a really snarky brat at times now. It has caused me to have a slightly jaded perspective on some things; but then again I learned a lot because of it to, not just about myself but about others. I guess it was your terminology in how you called it YOUR collar that had me at first. But yes I do understand the symbology behind it, I understand fully about the true meaning of the two collars, the one worn that others see, and the one worn that no one sees that is around the heart. When a true relationship begins to form for some. I have it as a pick on my profile. You see it as Your collar because they gave their collar to you in a sense for you to hold it out of their belief in you. They are trusting You with their collar so you see it as Yours now because it is Your responsibility for what happens to them because they have trusted you enough to give that power to you. I sometimes forget to turn my bratitude back down at times and lower the snarky level from 5 back down to a more easier dealt with 3 or so. It's sometimes hard when i don't really have someone that understands me much so I am left to my own devices. But such is how it is.
  4. A person should not have to tp away or click the bix X to escape from something in sl. And in some cases you cannot mute/block a person because of situations that prevent you doing that. Such as being a member of certain groups or sims that will kick/ban if you do. Thus preventing you from possibly interacting with other people there that you may like to interact with but may not want to add as a friend. Not everyone likes to fill up their friends list with just acquaintances but may like interacting with them at times. So cannot just mute/block/derender to escape. to tell a person to just log out shows a certain level of shallowness. For it is telling the person to just run away from the bully, which is what the bully wants. You don't run away from bullies or else they never learn to stop being a bully and you will find yourself running away from anything you don't like or agree with all the time. And no it 'is' not a stupid hat because someone else may wish to say it is because they see it as so. And it doesnt give them the right to be rude about it either and not be called out for their rude behavior. Which seems to be the problem with many people in this thread. they want to be able to be rude and expect people to just accept it. I know a person that wears a leg brace in sl, and even has it scripted to keep that leg rigid when its worn. Yet they do not have a broken leg in rl but did at one point have their leg in a brace because of medical issues but no longer do. Is that person who refuses to remove that leg brace wearing a stupid hat? Would it be fair or ok to make fun of them for wearing that brace because it is a reminder to them what they had to deal with in rl? When here in sl there would be no reason to wear it other than as a reminder since you can be perfectly fine here in sl regardless of what your rl is like. Simply the answer is no. it would not be fine to make fun of them. Same as it is should not be ok to make fun of how someone chooses to look just because you don't agree with it. And no they should not be expected to just ignore it just so the other person can get their frills by doing it. it shows that other person to be crass and rude. And yes that then gives that person just as much right to call them out for being crass and rude. Yet many are defending their right to be rude and then play the victim if someone calls them for being rude. A bit hypocritical imo.
  5. Yes, you are being callous for telling them to just lighten up. it shows you don't really care what they think or feel or if what you say or does effects them. who ever gave you that right to tell others to just lighten up? How would you like it if your boss came to you and then said, "oh guess what.. you have to work the next 24 hours with no pay and if you don't like it, just lighten up". I doubt you would like it and probably would complain about it. It has nothing to do with being rational or mature, for even the so called rational or mature can be jerks in how they treat others and then try and use the rational-mature card as their defense. "Oh it doesn't bother me because its not real. So it shouldn't bother you either!" SL is not an escape from reality for some people, it is an extension of their reality for them. to say they should not do that shows you to be callous and insensitive to others peoples feelings if it doesn't align with your own. and playing the mental problem card again shows how callous you are towards others feelings. Shaming and abuse and bullying can happen in SL and does. Not my problem if you refuse to accept this fact. The anti-victim-card 'is' a thing and is used in many forums and by many in these forum by those who seek to discredit a victim claiming its their own fault for how they were treated by someone else, who they have no control over. That in some way they deserve the treatment that was done to them. Attempting to pass the blame back to the victim. A form of attempted gas-lighting which is often done in sl and on the forums and even in this very thread by several people. making the victim think or believe its all on them. that the other person is not responsible for their actions or behaviours toward the victim. and this sort of behaviour and belief should not be accepted. "she was attacked because she looked a certain way, its her own fault" '"if she didn't like how she was treated she shouldn't have dressed or looked like she did." "it's not my fault I called her a cow because she looked fat and ugly to me, its hers for being fat and ugly" yes it is important for a victim to actually find someone who can give them help for what was done, but it is equally important for a victim to speak out about what was done so others become aware of it and not just keep it themself as a lot of people want done. because they do not want others to know of the activity or behaviour so it can be continues to be perpetrated upon others. "dont ruin my fun by telling others what I did or how I act" which is why so many people get in such a fuss about anyone that comes out today in any form of social media and claims they were a victim. it has become the mentality of some. "we don't care, we don't want to hear about, just go get help and dont bring it here." "don't bring my fun down because I don't care about you or how you feel" "don't make a fuss, it might change how I can have fun and then that would not be fun for me." and this sort of behaviour should not be acceptable in rl or in sl. Oh I know clearly what the word means and it was used as it was meant for. Your response in this thread and in others proves my point for me. A sociopath doesn't exactly not care, they just don't care to change their behaviour because they do not believe they need to. "it's my ball and I taking it home and you can't play with it anymore because I said so because you won't let me win"
  6. I doubt it will be disabled. for that is an important part of rlv, the ability to control the other user and what they can do. which includes access to their inventory and wearing or removing objects if it has been restricted. it is to simulate being tied or cuffed in real life where you would not be able to get dressed or undressed. Oh I am aware that I might have irritated certain people. but part of the reason for the post was to inform both sides of things they might not have known and for them to then decide what they wish to do about it. If it is a big deal to them or not if those things are done. Trust and 'communication' are important. toward the cheats, why do it? because you can, this is common mindset of a lot of people. This post just lets more people know that they exist and then have to decide how they want to deal with it. it brings into question of how much you really can trust your sub. how well do you communicate your desires and respond to theirs. it's not about losing out on patience, it's about choice, I just gave those who read this more choice in how they decide to play along. brats likes to be mischievous and I just gave them the power to do so even more. It is not ever just about one side or the other in what that side wants out of the relationship. now knowing this they have to decide how much they want to actually make the relationship work or not. will they get upset or not or discuss it and the implications of doing it and how it might affect the relationship. yes communication is key and important within any relationship, but not a lot of people do understand this at times and either just jump into a relationship or jump out of one when things are not how they expected instead of trying to work things out. Trust should be a two-way street but in some relationships it's not and often the sub thinks they have no choice in the manner at all because they were told so and just accept it without question. By revealing this I brought into consideration that a dom really does need to get to know their sub and make sure they are a proper match for each other. As to why some might care, well simple.. some are more domineering then dominant. And really it is not that you have them in 'your' collar, but they have you in 'their' collar. For the collar ultimately belongs to the wearer of the collar. their submission 'is' a gift that they can remove at will or choice but some dominants do not believe this or try and claim otherwise. that the sub is inferior or only their to serve them and their needs and desires. To some it is, rlv is the a major basis of the relationship. to some it is not it is just a tool or enhancement to the relationship. And that is your choice on how you use it, and all the post did was provide more choices for those who might use it for other reasons and then make some have to consider about those choices and how it may or may not affect the relationship. Oh this was not just about cheating, but just to inform those who use rlv of other possible uses that some users may be doing. Yes some may see it as cheating, and some may just see it as a brat being mischievous or disobedient and maybe wanting more attention because they feel like they have not had enough. I agree it should not be an all or nothing thing, but there are many within SL that do see it in that manner. There is no dynamic, its their way or the highway. obey completely or else. yes for some its a measure of trust, that if they cheat out they are not trustworthy, usually these people have trust issues themselves because of other experiences in life maybe inside or outside of sl. so they try to impose their will and choice on others without any care to how that other person feels. Being locked should be about the fun, the excitement the 'what will happen next' but for some it's just a means to control or cull users on who is trustworthy or not. who takes the relationship serious or doesnt. Again they probably have trust issues themself from previous experiences or are seeking some sort of karmic retribution against others because they cannot do it to the one that did it to them. yes just because they use another client doesn't mean they are not a sub, it just may mean that is what they have to use at that time for where they are at. I was just pointing out how those different clients may use rlv and what can be done on them. Unfortunately there are a lot of dominants in sl that think longer is better, or total and longer is better. that tpe means they get to be a jerk about how they treat their sub and their sub just has to endure it or be called a failure at being a sub. yes I know that tpe is normally for slaves, but for this instance I am going with the acceptance 'that all slaves are subs, but not all subs are slaves' so using sub a general term to refer to someone who might be submissive, be it by being a sub or slave. Oh, I know it's not just about kink, there are parent huds where parents use them to tp their children back home at bedtime. or for clothing management or to help fight against objects being removed on teleport because of sim lag. It has lots of possible use outside of just kink related activities.
  7. There will always be feelings within sl for some people. And yes you should be concerned how you act and if it bothers someone, if not it shows you to be a shallow person here and more than likely in real life as well. for most people no matter how much they claim to just be playing a role are mimicking what they really are in real life or how they wish they could be but dont have the courage to because of social constraints. A lot of people take pride in what their avatar looks like, to them it is an extension of them from real life. It is not just some fantasy they are exploring. So when they are mocked or ridiculed it does hurt them. And no it should not be acceptable for this sort of behaviour even here in sl. Just because you are willing to be a people pleaser and change to suit whatever the need or situation of who you are with does not mean everyone else should be or has too, just so they do not get attacked for how they choose to look. Sl is not just SL for some people, it is their link to other people and thus does have a deep and emotional impact on them(which can lead to dramatic events because that is how life works), to say it should not shows how callous you are. intentional or not, it may have been a deep personal choice to why they chose to look that way, to just call them out on it can show a lack of understanding or empathy or care toward someone else. And no they didn't ask for anyone to just be an insensitive jerk about it either. the person being the jerk chose to be that way because they like doing it. the main point of this entire thread was not about those who do in secret or keep it to themselves it is about those who do it openly in local or group chat in attempt to get a rise out of the person they are doing it to. To purposefully make that person feel bad about their choice in how they look., which is a form of shaming/bullying/abuse. Those who attempt to say otherwise just do not want their ability to do so to maybe be curtailed taking away their fun from doing it. In real life we do choose how we look, by how we eat and exercise and what clothes we choose to wear. Your questioning their fashion sense can be considered rude, because maybe to them that is the fashion they like. Choices can be questioned as well as the behaviours of those that question the choices of someone they may not know at a personal level. People who like to throw around the anti-victim-card excuse are usually the types of people that do exactly what this thread is about aka sociopathic. It has nothing to do with someone being delusional at all. To some people who and what they look like in SL has a very deep personal meaning and to just discredit it because you don't agree with it shows your lack of empathy or understanding or willingness to understand. "oh they are doing that just because" "Oh they just want attention" Same can be said about those that shame/bully/abuse they are doing it just because they like getting the rise out of the person they are doing it to. And when called on it get all emotional about it too and then have to defend their actions like they are now the victim. Just because you might call it a stupid hat does not mean they see it as a stupid hat. so to talk openly in local or group about it shows a lack of care for others feelings. and that is what this thread was about. people who just call what someone else wears a stupid hat and then expects them to just accept it and let it roll of their back like it doesn't matter at all, which it might to that person. People have emotions and feelings and those emotions and feelings do translate over to SL and how they may choose to look. To just toss that way shows how little a person cares about what someone else feels or thinks. Just because SL is virtual does not mean real emotions and feelings are in play by a lot of the people that are here.
  8. This was not a bug post nor was it meant to be one. It was simply a post to let people know of things that can be done while in rlv that they might not have known was possible before. Not everyone that has used rlv knows about either what I posted or what you posted. And some may consider it a form of cheating since it allows you wear/attach things from your inventory when it was supposed to be blocked. But even with that in mind both of those can still technically be blocked by rlv, by simply locking the attachment points and preventing anything from being attached at that point. Which I said would cause some problems because it would then prevent things from being attached such as props from furniture or other items attempting to do so. which is why I didn't actually say how before. This was not meant to be a bug report. but just an informative post on other things that people might not know could be done even with rlv on and certain restrictions in place. Nor was this just about one single client but rlv and its possible use in general. Not everyone that uses sl or rlv may have known about these little bits of information. so I simply posted about them. If lumiya is using any of the same code or not, was not the meaning of this post. Just was stating out that there is a difference that some might not have known about how rlv works within it. do not assume this was a bug or issue post. if I had felt they were bugs that needed to be addressed I would have posted them in the proper place. I do know about the jira. ahh, but you see it can be blocked by simply locking all the attachment points thus making it unable to be used to attach or remove items at that point. so it technically can be blocked by those who might wish to do so. because as stated some may see this as a form of cheating around the rlv restriction of being able to access inventory.
  9. ~static and hissing sounds~ Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me ~wrong, yet at the same time true. Words spoken or written have no power or meaning other than what the listener or reader attributes to them. ~wrong, yet at the same time true. what man does not understand he seeks to control, what man cannot control he seeks to destroy, what man cannot destroy he fears and calls evil. Man fears to live for live backwards is evil. What does all that mean? Well it's simple there are various groups within this thread and each have their own view of what the meaning and use of certain words are, both sides will continue to argue their side is correct and refuse to accept that they may be wrong. When in fact they are both wrong and correct at the same time. But they cannot understand that so seek to control what others think about it, and when fail try to impose or destroy the othersides view or right to that view, but when they find out they cannot, they fear it and shut down and refuse to realize that both sides of the equation are equally wrong and correct at the same time. Yes, these are not real bodies, but yes again, people are being bullied/shamed having their emotions and feelings or thoughts abused for the choices they make about them. Yes they could just try and ignore it and move on, but again it hurts when constantly having it done by random people just because they are annon behind a nick on a screen and think it gives them the right to be a jerk in how they treat others. At some point a line has to be drawn and they have to be told it is not acceptable just because they want it to be able to or claim it should be just because this is virtual and not real as in a face to face meeting between the individuals. Sl =/= RL aka second life is not real life and nothing said or done here can hurt anyone. ~Wrong, yet true at the same time. Everything we say or do here has some effect on someone else behind the screen, it may anger them or hurt them or make them happy and feel good about themselves. These choices we make and the choices they make can have real life effects on people emotionally, or mentally or psychologically. Which can lead to physical problems from stress and anxiety and depression. Yet there are many people who cannot understand this or simply refuse to because they do not want to hold themselves or be held accountable or responsible for their behaviour or actions in this virtual world of fantasy and make believe. They want to live out their fantasy even if it means being a total jerk because they would not ever have the courage to do so in real life. When anyone calls them out on their actions they become defensive because they are afraid changes may happen that might eventually limit them from being able to be that jerk, taking away their new found fun and freedom from rl rules and responsibilities. Their fantasy or experience would be lessened for them and that is all they really care about, not how some stranger feels about what they said or did. Basically these kinds of people would be classified as antisocial or sociopathic, they lack understanding and empathy for others because they either never were shown it themselves or never learned how to yet. so they believe their behavior is acceptable or should be and anyone offended should just turn the other cheek or block/mute/derender and move on. Just accept it, just deal with it, just allow it, just go with it, just flow with it, do nothing to change it. Because if anyone did do anything or caused anything to be done, then their level of fun and enjoyment based upon what they consider fun would or might be severely curtailed. So they will come in defend their right to be a jerk like its a badge of honor to do so. Now onto the other side, yes getting hurt is a choice, yes getting angry is a choice, yes letting someone bother you 'is' a choice and we can all make the choice to not let it happen. But should we do this, we teach those that do it that its ok for them to continue to behave in this manner. So it becomes a moral and ethical dilemma, and thus causes even more issues for most here do not like having anyone else's morals or ethics or values imposed upon them for any reason at all. So again it comes down to ignore or stand up and say 'no, not acceptable' and be seen as the possible outcast by those who want it continued to be allowed because they seek numbify people toward the experience making it and others similar to it more accepted and the norm. Each little slight or abuse they can make someone numb to is another thing they can then use and take advantage of them or others with because its become the accepted norm behavior. Fun for the sake of fun. Enjoyment at any cost. Pleasure for the sake of pleasure no matter who gets hurt or used or abused in the process. "As long as I get my fun, who cares!" Does abuse happen in sl? Yes. Does bullying/shaming happen in SL? Yes. Should it be allowed or tolerated or accepted? That is for you to decide and not really for me to tell you. Chose wisely, for how you chose may affect someone's life in a major or drastic manner that could have far reaching impact and effect on others lives outside of SL, which if ever learned was caused because of things within SL could then cause problems and changes to be forced upon SL by outside forces. ~We now return you to your normal fantasy broadcast~
  10. There are a few things that some people may not know about rlv, that have recently been discovered. So I thought I would share this information for others to learn and deal with however they wish. The first is a little known fact that even if a sub or slave has been stripped and their inventory has been blocked there is still a way they can get dressed without have to safeword or turn off rlv in firestorm. Firestorm has a option called 'wearable favorites' this special folder is not affected by any rlv restriction in general. What this means is any object put in this folder can be attached even if the normal inventory is blocked by rlv. You can add clothes, huds, any attachment then even if stripped by an item collar/furniture/whatever. You can still apply the clothes/objects/huds within this folder even if you had been blocked from accessing your inventory. you can even add it as a toolbar button making it even easier to access and use quickly. Yes there is a way to prevent this, but it requires using additional restrictions at that point which could make other activities more problematic. The second is that there is a way for a sub or slave to see where they are or have been even if locations and map has been blocked by rlv. It is done by using the teleport history in firestorm. this is not affected by rlv at all it cannot be blocked or cleared by rlv. and will show where you were teleported to and from. meaning a sub can open this and see where they are at or have been after they are teleported away from the location or log in to a different location. there is no way to prevent this at all in rlv currently. so if you block your sub/slave from seeing map/location they can still use the history to see where they have been. it keeps the history until they clear it out themselves. Which means they can ever go back to the area whenever they want as long as not tp restricted, so even if blindfolded they could go back and see what was there. either on the same account or an alt which would make tp restrictions pointless about them seeing where they were. so any dumbinants that like to leave your sub dazed and dazzled there is a way they can still go back and ever see or find that location and through the use of an alt ever learn who the normal participants of the area might be at the time they were there thus making even hiding names pointless. Next is tp restrictions. There is a way for a sub/slave that is tp restricted to be able to get to different locations even with rlv enabled and all tp restrictions enabled on firestorm. This is done by using the login location when logging in to sl in firestorm. you have home/last and your favorites/landmarks or a typed in choice. tp restrictions only prevent someone from logging in to a typed in location or favorite/landmark. It does not affect the use of home/last location. so any dumbinants that like to try and keep your sub/slave stuck in one place all the time..well they can still go at least one other place and cannot be stopped by rlv from doing so. So if their last location is not the same as their set home location they can use that home location to log in to someplace different. So if they set their home location to a sim that has scripts disabled at the region level, well...most of you should know what that means. That the scripts cannot start and the restrictions will not be applied meaning they can remove any object or attach any object at that time and talk and do whatever else was previously restricted. And no not even the AO keep alive functions will allow the scripts to run at this point. Which this will also prevent any collar from sending the notice that they logged in with rlv off since the scripts cannot even start to make the check and then send the notice. So they could remove the collar, do whatever they want, then put the collar back on before their owner logged in and tp back to last place the owner left them and the owner would not really know. For doing this method even stops any spy scripts in the collar from being able to spy on their location or chat or touch or sit too until the collar is replaced and they tp into a script enabled region and the scripts starts at that point. There is a way to prevent this in firestorm but it requires the sub/slave to do it thus they could undo it and still use it whenever they wanted. So unless you can get your sub to use a client that does not allow this, well you cannot stop them from ever doing this. So yes I sort of covered two things in that one, the next thing has to deal with mobile clients. Lumiya for android in general. In lumiya you can enable and disable rlv on the fly, it is sandboxed. meaning no relog required to turn it off or on ever. meaning a sub/slave could log in with rlv on then turn it off and the collar would never send the notice and they would be able to do whatever they wanted at that time including removing the collar. there is no way to prevent this at all on lumiya. and no it will not trigger any scripts about the user logging in with rlv off, if they first logged in with rlv on before turning it off then removing the collar. Oh one other thing, when turning off rlv in lumiya it will instantly clear any restriction, there is no wait time at all, and it does not allow for many of the newer blind/dazzle features of collars or blindfolds, and as far as I can tell it does not even allow forced tp to work. so any sub/slave on lumiya can free themselves easily from any trap/device/restriction without having to relog ever. so any dumbinants that like to just set them and leave and then think their/the sub/slave is stuck/restricted until they relog.. think again.
  11. Yes and no they are different but often thought as the same or lumped together. A Femdom may be a findom but not all female dom's aka domme's are findoms. Its basically a few bad apples that get everyone who then uses the same term being lumped together and seen as the same even when they are not. Just like a slave is a sub but not all subs are slaves, yet there are many dom/me's that think if you are a sub then you are as slave too. Toward your fear there is not a lot that can be done about that unless they have active members to monitor who does come in and out of the area and kicks anyone that changes to a child avatar. But that same sort of behavior could happen no matter where you are. someone would find you afk in world and do that even if not at a afk sim. They could find you and position their avatar with animations to make it look like you were doing things even if clothes are on and just adjust the camera view and distance and then attempt to ar it at that time. Staying logged in to sl and being afk is risky, unless fully clothed and in an active G where there are greater chances a LO will be watching and kick anyone from trying to do that with your avatar.
  12. though if it is not often sex themed, its vore themed and not often rp as in an ongoing long term rp event like some rp themed places are. though the OP could ever look for art galleries and just become a piece of art in them(not sex themed at that point).
  13. Are they dieing out in general? Nope there is still a lot of them. Do all of them last long? Nope they often die out in a few weeks or months and often are replaced by new ones that think they can do it better. Sometimes these new ones actually do last longer than the old one. And some have lasted the test of time just because the owner keeps it there because they want to, not because it makes them any profit doing so. Not every sim run in sl is for profit. Some it's just a hobby and for fun.
  14. the only issue with that is bots would eventually reach that age and then be able to enter the group or region at that point. So even that is just a temp fix at best. and diehard spammers will age bots to get around such methods of keeping them out. In diablo II on pc I used to see spam bots that were leveled up to rank 90 to get past most level restricted games to spam the players of that game.
  15. Question: were you wanting to share the logs between the two computers? Or were you just curious if they were automatically shared between computers? For the latter the answer is no. they would not be shared, since they are stored on two seperate machines not talking with each other by any special means. Toward the former it can be done by various means and is not really hard to set up. You could use a NAS and have both machines set to store the logs in the same folder on the NAS. Of course the NAS would need to be open to the outside world if both machines were not on the same network. You could also probably set up a backup system where it backs up the logs every hour to an online location from both machines. thus you could view the log from either machine online at any time as long as they had successfully completed the backup as scheduled. There might be other ways as well depending upon what you were wanting.
  16. Oh yes, it is most definitely a thing in some places or groups in sl. You will find people that will not rp with you let alone talk to you unless you have their preferred mesh body, shape, skin on for your avatar to look how they expect you to look in sl. It is no different in Sl then it is in RL. for some it's even their kink or fetish to shame others or be shamed by others.
  17. Not my first either, I had my own forum, wiki, blog site, photo sharing site before. And depending upon how the site is made an admin could go in and remove the emoji or adjust the reputation on a post. Just really depends upon how the site is set up what sort of database it uses. if its anything like MySQL or similar it can be done fairly easily by an admin or a mod that has database access.
  18. As a society, many have been brainwashed into needing it because of various social platforms or devices that do it. Like our phones and all the notifcations, we can get from the different apps on it.
  19. Oh, I do that too. I take the side of the devil's advocate just because no one else was. There are always two sides to any situation, even when some don't think or want there to be. it is always good to have feedback on both positive or negative. it keeps us from maybe becoming obsessed with the idea that maybe we are infallible in what we think or feel at times. No one is perfect in this world 100% of the time.
  20. Sometimes it can be fun to take that side to any discussion on any forums. Sometimes it is helpful because it reminds us we are human after all and not machines unless you are me, then most definitely I am just a machine. a biochemical machine but a machine.
  21. I usually won't buy from a creator that has a timeout demo, I'm ok with the boxes and rings and even maybe not being able to click every option in the hud. I usually leave even if it was something I liked and well they just lost a customer. Not going to obsess over one item, when there are so many other places or things to try. Like another poster I want to see how it handles on tp to several locations, does it stay with me and together properly. The only timeout I would even come close to thinking was ok was at least 30 minutes. Then I can tp to my normal places and see how it looks at each one and maybe ask a few people there what they thought about it and if was worth buying or not in their opinion. Less than that is not even worth the time it took to get the demo and put it on.
  22. You cant remove the emote yourself, but a forum mod could if they thought it was inappropriate or abusively used. Well, you can report the post then add in a reason for the report or you could go as far as copy the url and then open up a support case about it and complain and then leave it up to LL to deal with. though this might not directly change the person that did it, they could be punished by the mods for doing it, which does, in fact, change it since they might not be able to post anymore at that point. Unless they went as far as to create an alt account just to come back to continue. I have seen even this sort of behavior on forums before in many video game forums.
  23. They may or may not have even seen it as scornful so would have had no reason to worry about it. but it is really not just them you have to worry about; but the others here too and how they might have reacted to it. yet I think you are probably safe, considering which thread it probably was.
  24. To the Op, you have to also be aware of not just being chat restricted(blocked, unable to talk) but if being chat redirected too through whatever device might have you captured. There are some products in the mp that can do this and even prevent you from touching the collar to use the button on the collar menu to use your safeword. Depending upon the client you use, you may still be able to use ((OOC)) to access the safeword, in this case simply being ((RED)). Not all RLV enabled clients though allow OOC. Such as Marine Kelly's new hardcore RLV, it disables OOC and cannot be enabled in it, nor can you disable rlv in that client either. So would need access to another client to log in with rlv off at that point. You mentioned you were on mobile. I am assuming its Lumiya? If so I am not sure if lumiya supports ((OOC)). But one safe feature about Lumiya is that you can turn off rlv in the options menu and not have to relog after doing so, whereas most other pc based clients will force you to relog to get out of rlv at that point. In Lumiya you can enable and disable rlv as often as needed or wanted at any point in time. The moment you do it will clear all restrictions set upon you, the same as using your safeword. Another bonus added about how Lumiya handles rlv is that if you disable it after logging in, it won't cause a collar to do the normal notification to your owner that you logged in with rlv off either. So you would log in with rlv on in lumiya, then turn it off, then not worry about that notification being sent. for if you didn't know if you log in with rlv off and have an owner set they are notified that you logged in with rlv off. Which for some people is just a source of drama...at which point you do whatever you want until your owner logs in then you turn rlv back on. and they will never know except for whatever restrictions they had set are now cleared off. oh you will want to remove the collar while playing around if you tp, it will ask you to turn rlv back on at some point.
  25. Simple if it can be seen by someone caming upskirt/dress or by right-clicking and removing your clothing layers through de-rending them its frowned upon in some G sims by some people. I know a few G sims that will do this if someone sees you and then complains to a mod there. G sims are like the old teen grid, meant to be safe and wholesome and family/teen friendly to some mods/admins. some will even fuss if you have a weapon on you, even if not scripted but just in hand or worn visible. some will fuss what group tag you have active and request you change it while there. some as another poster said will tell you to hide groups they don't approve of while there. some will even find a profile pick or even the profile pic offensive and want it changed or not to come there with it. In the end, if they are a mod, talk to the sim admin and see if it is against the sim rules. if not tell the admin how the mod treated you and made you feel. or just never go there again. they could have been an sjw or holly roller trying to impose their own views and the real mods/admins didn't know. if you find out they are not a mod/admin and the sim admin says its fine, report them for harassment if they tried it again the next time ever there.
