  1. I like how you treat "not buying something" and "buying something but the item didn't deliver" as the same thing. That alone is enough to prove how clueless you are about how important payments and transactions are for ANYTHING, from websites to games, cause you sound like the type of person who thinks a UI bug like misaligned text is about the same priority as a frickin payment server tanking. "Things purchased will eventually be delivered"? Lol. You think 90% of residents in SL read forums on a regular basis and has any idea what's going on with Caspervend? You think most people even kn
  2. You do realize literally 90% of store groups nowadays cost $ to join right? And most people don't join them? I'm not going to pay 500L for each of the 50+ stores I visit just to get occasional notices. Since this is a payment incident it should've been elevated to LL for them to send out a gridwide notice, or at least have them put it on the SL status page.
  3. With a MAJOR percentage of sellers in SL using Caspervend you can pretty much consider it as a monopoly/duopoly/whatever. You'd think a company that controls such a major portion of SL's economy would have at least 1 developer + 1 support rep on-call on a weekend, like a normal company? Where's the official statement on why it's not working, and the progress being made (if any) to resolve it? Where's the "sorry something went wrong but we have no idea what, please refrain from making any purchases" statement? I have no idea about how many transactions are done hourly in SL, but I think AT LEAS
  4. Culturally appropriate latin alphabet? Lol. You might want to first google what cultural appropriation means. You do realize the reason I type in English is because, oh idk, I know how to write in English and I have an understanding of the words I'm using? Do you see me typing in Greek or German? Also imagine being ignorant enough to think alphabet equals words. You do realize there's no "alphabet" in Kanji/Hanzi? It's not some "pattern" you slap onto a shirt like the Coach logo. It's essentially the equivalent of putting random English words on a shirt and calling it a day. Though if you
  5. This is the type of crap I'm talking about where people thinks "kanji looks cool", so they literally just google a bunch of kanji, paste them into Photoshop and call it a day, with absolute zero idea what the characters even mean: "Hey look at me I'm so cool and/or exotic wearing shorts with oriental hieroglyphs thingiemajigs on it!" What does it mean? "Who cares?"
  6. If I have a nice chat with someone I meet, I usually add them to my list at the end of the conversation (assuming it lasted at least an hour or so) so I don't have to write down their name, search their profile, and IM them (hoping they're online) if I want to talk to them again. Am I being too hasty? I noticed 90% of people I have a nice chat with, never add me, even after like 5 conversations, not exactly sure why. Are they just shy or don't really care about being friends with me despite having spent like 10 hours chatting with me? I guess different people have different perspectives on wha
  7. They can pull the exact same dirty move with legacy body cause it uses the exact same stupid server-side asset system. Nothing you buy for legacy, like skins and cosmetics, exists in your inventory, they're all just flags on their servers which are retrieved each and every time you open up their laggy, bulky and pointless hud (the hud itself takes literally 30sec to load every time I attach it cause it needs to make a call to their hamster-powered servers). If their servers ever go down or they just decide to shut down this brand and open up a new one, all your stuff will be gone, period. They
  8. All you can set up on that site without paying up is your account and profile, quite literally, which is completely useless. They also prevent you from putting in any URLs, or even any resemblance of a SL username, in your profile (so you know, others can IM you inworld and bypass the site's paywall), which imo is lame and hilarious cause basically you have a list of hundreds of Jane Doe's and John Doe's. To actually chat with someone you also have to pay up. TLDR: useless site.
  9. "Realistic"? Do guys actually like this kind of insanely muscular look? Like he's on 27 different kinds of steroids? Do other women like it as well? As a straight Asian female in RL overly muscular alpha males legit creeps me out. I guess it must be more of a western thing to be attracted to guys who look like they bench press cars on a daily basis.
  10. There's actually a creator selling a bento head without a demo (yes you read that right), that anime/Venus head. The creator's known to be extremely unfriendly/snobby and provides pretty much zero customer service, but since the quality itself is okay he's got a cult following of loyal otakus who'll pretty much buy anything he puts out without a thought. Unfortunately it's virtually the only quality anime head in SL, so I guess he can afford to be a snobby a-hole and provide no demos on his products since anime fanatics (and there are a lot in SL) pretty much have no other choice but to buy hi
  11. #OutOfTheLoop Is this some new trend to look like ruth?
  12. Three-body Problem by Liu Cixin, cause apparently Netflix is making a show out of it (I have very, very, very low expectations of it, cause some parts of the book are too abstract to "act out" in a movie, and seeing as a western media is making it it'll probably just end up a complete mess like Mulan). I read about 1/3 of the first book but then stopped cause it's a very, very heavy read, but pushed myself to start again. It's definitely an awesome book, but due to the overwhelming amount of exposition it almost feels like reading a textbook. Basically a Dan Brown book except 10x more complex.
  13. By that description then pretty much anyone wearing a pale Asian skin with a kawaii-style shape would be a child avatar to you then.
  14. It's annoying when sellers name their items, usually no-mod so you can't even change it, with non-English words, ironically while typing in English. If you name something like "kimono shiro" (white kimono), if people didn't speak Japanese how in the world would they know what this item is? Is it that hard to name your items in English, especially since you're already typing in English anyways as inventory folders aren't unicode compatible?
