  1. I'd not really call Bloodlines a role-play system to be honest simply due to the similarity it has to a pyramid scheme and a money-sink. You don't need spend all those L$ on highly scripted systems to role-play - you just role-play.
  2. I suspect you may have meant to use the word "alone" which is totally different in meaning to "a loan". It's also probably a rhetorical question but I'll answer anyway. Yes and No Everyone needs some alone time especially in SL. However to only be alone in SL sort of defeats the entire reason for SL existing in the first place.
  3. I thought it should take you to an exit survey - guess something got "changed".
  4. This and the fact that the $$$$$ making machine that is Google saw yet another way to pull in people so that got used to the app and then put it behind a paywall.
  5. My own view on IMVU (having tried it out a couple of years back) is that it actually offers nothing for those used to the Second Life experience - it's nothing really other that static chatrooms you can dress up and stand or sit in various poses. No walking around - no exploring and discovering fantastic interconnected places. They may both be an online social platform but that deliver it in totally different ways. IMVU is (as far as I understand it) for the generation addicted to their mobiles as it runs on that. No thanks
  6. It nothing to do with availability - they show as available but the web server itself returns an error 504 (general timeout error) once you accept the terms & conditions.
  7. You are (sadly) not only in getting the Error 504 message - I returned to Second Life yesterday and have been unable to obtain a Linden Home due to that error. I have submitted a ticket but I do not expect to hear back on it soon. I just hope that when it does get fixed I am not limited to the old ghetto style homes :)
  8. Do people actually read the profile feeds anyway? A left over relic from when they tried to make SL more like Facebook.
  9. Impossible to state what the most played song on SL ever was because there are so many streaming services and thankfully most do not use the data in that way. Probably more correct to say "A small sample of certain clubs using certain streaming services played this tune the most" Then again this is probably just a play to send that video viewing stats up.
  10. Not actually true The Virtual Disgrace system a.k.a Peanut is not actually run by the people behind OpenCollar - the names get interchaged incorrectly and to the annoyance of each set of designers - it has an opencollar web address I guess from a heritage stance. Both systems share a common and colourful heritage and so are mostly compatible and may appear to be the same but are actually quite different under the hood in the code and updates. Opencollar itself is at this website https://opencollar.cc/
  11. It's not really anything near a showstopper - just mouse scroll zoom out and then reset view. Yes it is annoying when this happens but its not like all your attachments end up looking like they are sticking out of your pelvis after teleporting which was a far more annoying bug several years ago.
  12. If the official viewer got rid of that awful "lets have all conversations in one window" mess and ditched web profiles then the main reasons for me not to use their client over others would vanish. There is a massive learning curve and sadly LL, despite having far greater access to resources than 3rd party viewer developers really dropped the ball by going for form over function.
  13. Your missing items may be part of a coalesced object in your lost & found - pop over to a sandbox, rez the lost & found contents and you may be lucky. Sadly though you are highly likely to have lost them as returning no copy items is notorious for them going into the ether. Ideally you should have sorted out the land parcel, cleared up up BEFORE putting it for sale but hindsight is not of any use.
  14. Way to go spam posting adverts in forums that have no relation to the content you posted.
  15. Probably should try posting this in https://community.secondlife.com/forums/forum/312-inworld-employment/ as it is not really role-play related (its a job ad). Also maybe post some real SL pics of the place instead of those other ones you have decided to use?
  16. It's harsh I know but the only way to "avoid" this is to grow a thick skin, never respond to the suspected alt of the stalker, block them and just get on with your Second Life. Any attention you give them - talking about them to others - heck even getting a friend to post about it on the forums - just gives the crazy person what they want. Starve them of attention - they will get bored.
  17. Anyone who "demands" to know/see real life information before they are willing to get to know you and build trust is not worth the effort of dealing with. Nobody has the right to know anything about me or anyone else that they do not wish to share and if they can't comprehend what privacy means then I'm glad not to know them.
  18. Folks that's what was showing when I did my land search a month ago - look at the date.
  19. Yes there is indeed a way to force disclosure and it is the way that the designers are following - go to court. The legal teams will get all the info. It is also expensive which is why most people just roll over and play dead when a rogue DMCA is served as the "appeals" process is stacked against you.
  20. Some want no sex in SL Some want no kids in SL Some want no furries in SL Some want no fees in SL Some want <insert topic here> in SL People are people - some want one thing whilst others want something else. None of them are wrong to want what they want but at the same time none of them are right to assume that is how it should be for everyone.
  21. Premium is worth it for me - no rental to pay and worry that the landlord will kick you out and do a runner. The new Linden homes are really well thought out and landscaped. The stipend is a welcome bonus. I factored in the stipend and my premium land and it was cheaper for me to be premium than rent based upon L$ per land impact - I doubt that this has changed,
  22. The tips you refer to are produced on the loading screen and teleport screens. You can disable both those screens within the preferences options but to be honest sometimes you will find the tips to be really quite useful.
  23. Sadly, with the internet meme as so-called "fair-usage" a great many have little if any understanding of copyright laws in their country let alone the international arena. Bottom line is unless you created it or it is in the public domain then it should not be uploaded. Sadly the enforcement of such theft can only be done by resorting to filing a DMCA take down request which is of course a USA process and so probably not going to happen for a great many creative individuals who reside elsewhere.
