    It's simple, think of bloodlines as a pyramid scheme. ...

    Yay. Thank you Dean for reading my question and addressing it.

    So it is a reaction against the spamming. (I was here from 2005 to about 2012) Back in the day ... There were Linden Hubs sprinkled about where all thew n00bs would land when coming in-game and if you passed one you would get deluged with NCs for stores, casinos, sex and sims, etc. Annoying sure but not that hard to ignore.

    But to be clear, even if you accepted a "bite request" you couldn't actually be compelled to purchase anything, could you? You could still choose to continue or quit vampire RPing if you wanted to, no?

    I like the intent (Don't spam out guests) but it seems too focused to be effective (Don't spam bite requests, or "No Bloodlines".)

  2. Thanks for the positive reviews Aidy, but I was wondering why sims felt they needed to protect people by banning vampire play. Does it somehow make some people afraid to visit or shop?

  3. I don't play (or fully understand) Vampire play or bloodlines or whatever. It just seems like any other Role Play method to me. What I am wondering is why I need random Sims protecting me with "no vampire" policies? If I tried it and didn't like it couldn't I just stop playing it?

    nearly every modern laptop and pc will run SL, just the levels of quality will be different.
    For qlternative viewers and for use on other devices you can have a look here

    In general you can say tablets and other lower spec'd devices will not run SL otherwise than by another 3rd party help like https://brightcanopy.com/

    (additional costs)

    The third party viewer link is nothing new to me. The Bright Canopy (Frame) link is a revelation so thanks for that.

    But I am looking for more specifics than "nearly every modern laptop." Like examples of what people use. I realize out of box people won't likely be using these forums but since I build my own I would want to drop a nice graphics card into anything I purchased and that's not an option here. I am just not familiar with low/mid range off-the-shelf prebuilt systems. Thank you.

  5. Personally I have a couple of custom built desktops that have no problem with SL (or anything else I have thrown at them yet for that matter.)

    But I am trying to help someone with no computer skills get online on SL. Is there a laptop or other portable device (about 13" screen) that will run Firestorm and SL out of the box? PC, Mac, Android, it doesn't really matter. I don't want bare minimum but there won't be much else running except a browser. So something middle of the road maybe? (Frankly I am tired of comparing the SL system requirements to pre-built systems.)

    I have seen plenty of topics on upgrading or building PC's but does anyone have out of box experience? Thanks.

  6. I indeed am now able to delete using the white and green arrow. And adding a new Pick is much easier now. I feel like using the "Me" option enabled the direct Profile method you prefer. I have no proof of this other than 2 days of poking at the "My Profile" dialog every 30 minutes for 10 minutes... Thanks.

    It's not in your profile but a separate item in the "Me" menu:


    Thanks ChinRey. From there I was able to right click and delete the items as opposed to simple "editing" them. Crazy, right? Also I looked under "Me" about 4 times. I guess I was frustration blind. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

    This is in Profile. Click on the pick, then Edit in the upper right corner to get the Edit window shown on the left:


    I thank you for that, but it only allows editing of what is already there. No deleting altogether. It was driving me crazy that I could change the SLurl but not delete the thing. I used the answer by ChinRey and was able to right click and delete. But a sincere thanks for your time Jinxy.

  9. How do I edit Picks in My Profile? There is no "add", "+" or other button. I haven't placed anything in there but some places are in there.

    Could somebody burn the Wiki? It was useful in 2006 when I was here but now it is all based on old viewer versions.

    I have searched this forum and elsewhere with no up to date assistance found. If you know of something please link to it.

    Using Linden SLV. Thanks.
