  1. Personally I think LL should create and enforce this policy: Any demo must be listed as L$0. Any demo must have a parent listing of the full version. Limit one demo per product, not one per variation. (Don't create 500 copies of the demo if there are multiple sizes/colours. Put all the colours and sizes in one demo listing and link the demo in the parent listings) Demos must not shout/say any advertisements in-world. Then create a thing that allows delisting of demos from search, preferably by default, like so: Ignore the poor placement, this was done in 1 minute. Also anything listed as a "gift" or "freebie" must be listed as L$0.
  2. I can see it now, LL's next MP category banner: "*notices your store* OwO whats this?" (I both hope this happens and hope it doesn't happen at the same time.)
  3. Found it, didn't take long. It most certainly is encroachment with intent to disrupt. Nothing here should be on the road parcel except for the road. Normally I'd say a sign like "SLOW children at play"(provided said sign stays off the driving portion of the road and is phantom) or MATCHING road connections(provided it does not disrupt the driving experience) would be okay, but this is clearly an attempt to get money and I would personally count it as a disturbance of the peace. Somehow this has gone unnoticed since 2005-11-22 19:53:14.203021, which I believe this to be the rez date considering both OBJECT_CREATED_TIME and the fact the texture metadata is absent.
  4. I've invented a security orb that uses quantum computing that will detect if you will be on my land today and it will go ahead and file a abuse report so Linden Lab can permanently ban your avatar so no one has any problems as long as you don't plan on going on my land today.
  5. This is not an official ruling, but my interpretation of the rules and terms of service as of 2019-03-25. If you need actual legal advise, hire a lawyer. A child avatar can be in adult rated sims, with the following restrictions: Child avatars must not be near sexual content or activities(Sexual posters/pictures, sex animesh, people going at it on pose balls, adult toys, etc). Child avatars must not be on adult furniture. This includes if the child avatar is simply using the PG animations, or if the animations are disabled. If the furniture contains adult animations the child avatar must not use it. Child avatars must not participate in adult activities(either role-play or animations), this should go without saying. The following caveats apply: It is the child avatar's responsibility to leave the area if adult activities are taking place where they are at, with the exception of a malicious avatar intentionally placing sexual content next to a child avatar(LL will be able to find this out). If a malicious user does this, the child avatar should still leave the area but will likely not be seen as the offending party if an abuse report arises. Cub avatars(furry child avatars) also apply to this rule. I have to say this because I've seen someone using a cub avatar then they used the excuse "its not ***** if it is furries but ok". Child avatar nudity is a very very very grey area. While there is no official ruling on this, "social nudity" has been seen as non-sexual(but still needs a mature rated region), this can be seen as "ok" for a child avatar as long as there is absolutely no sexual content(this includes erections, explicit fluids, sexual references, etc). My advice is no child avatar should be nude for everyone's safety. Furniture that had adult animations in it but they have been removed in full(no animations in inventory, code for related animations removed) is acceptable provided it isn't a sex toy or similar type item. Short avatars do not automatically count as child avatars. Small people exist, not everyone is giants in SL. It is still up to the sim moderators to make a decision on this and they may err on the side of caution, but use best judgment when handling these situations: Yes: A short person, micros(that are of age), naturally small fantasy creatures(elves, imps, etc). No: Any of the above wearing a diaper or using passifiers, using baby talk(actual baby talk, not "english no good speak fantasy language"), etc. In the context of a club, this can be very dependant on the situation. If the region is just rated adult but it doesn't have sexual content in the club, then it should be perfectly fine. An issue would arise if it is a club like most furry clubs where sexual content is rampant. If stripper poles are present, I'd say no, the child avatar should not be there. If you do feel something might actually be in violation, please do report it. Linden Lab will decide if it is in violation or not, if it isn't, they'll simply discard it. It is better to keep the platform safe than risk people violating the rules. Since this is a facebook post, there isn't much that can be done unless the situation is observed in-world. People can impersonate other people on facebook which creates an issue of validation. Since naming/shaming isn't allowed, you'd need to inspect the situation yourself if you would like. Using the guide I have posted above, you can make judgement on whether or not the situation should be elevated and brought to Linden Lab's attention.

  6. I personally don't mind if someone uses text or voice. I however much prefer text over voice for the following reasons: I have autism(Asperger's to be specific). This makes social cues hard for me to recognize and makes it hard for me to understand when it is my turn to talk(in large groups). I often feel I might interrupt someone so I stay slient a lot. I have a lisp. It may be due to Asperger's or it might just be I'm bad with speaking. I know I can get speech therapy but I don't want to. It's part of who I am and I don't want to fix it. I only have a problem with this when people make fun of it. I personally think I sound too young and/or obnoxious. It could just be me but I don't want to worry people into "oh he is underaged!"(I'm not, I've actually had LL correct my DOB once before and they have the proof for the pudding), or people to leave because I sound annoying. Now I do use discord and hang out with my friends in voice chat. I don't have a problem with that because they do not mind. I wouldn't mind using voice chat with friends in SL. I wouldn't use voice chat if I were the only one using it though. I don't however like to use voice chat in public areas or with strangers because if the reasons listed above.
  7. I recently watched bird box. Memes aside it is pretty interesting. Also Disenchantment is really good. It's made by the guy behind Simpsons and Futurama. It is a medival comedy adventure. First 10 episodes are out, next 10 set to be released this year, followed by 10 next year and 10 the following year.
  8. Ban lines are for what they say in the title, bans. As for kicking people out, nah. I honestly don't mind if people go into my house. Whats the point of decorating it if I want to hide it away. (AND BEFORE someone goes and say "but you wouldn't let people into your real house!", it's different, people can't steal or trash the place)
  9. I've concluded that SSP stands for Super Secret Project. They refuse to confirm or deny this.
  10. My honest opinion, there is no need to encrypt stuff in LSL. It is often just a waste of CPU/script time. Here are my reasons: If you are encrypting say, applier textures or some sort of texture, this is completely pointless. If anyone wanted to steal a texture, they'd use a copybot viewer instead of trying to figure out what channel the scripts communicate on, then write a decrypter. If people listening in on the channel for the applier is the problem, consider doing a handshake system instead(applier says "anyone there?", object that gets the textures says "I am", applier verifies same owner then does llRegionSayTo). If you are sending stuff off to a server via llHTTPRequest or sending stuff to a LSL server using llRequestURL(), consider using HTTPS. Even when using HTTP, chances of someone listening into this are slim to none. You are more likely to be struck by lightning. (If someone is listening in on this type of communication, you have a bigger problem) If you just want to ensure integrity of a message, you can simply prepend a llMD5String( string src, integer nonce ) or llSHA1String( string src ); with a secret key seen in the Signing Example below. This can also be used with HTTP Requests should you need to be extra secure(which may make sense if your API may be discovered while still preventing people from using this. You can also boost security by doing the same thing LL does by using experience keys to store the sharedKey. Encryption in LSL is very hard to get right, and when done wrong can be easily broken, especially XOR "encryption". Its very easy to break and has various attacks, one which is very easy is the Known String attack. Signing Example: string signMessage(string myString){ return llSHA1String(sharedKey + myString) + myString; } string validateMessage(string myString){ if(llGetSubString(myString, 0, 39) == llSHA1String(sharedKey + llGetSubString(myString, 40, -1))){ //Our message is signed and valid! return llGetSubString(myString, 40, -1); }else{ //Not valid, return nothing return ""; } }
  11. Unfortunately, no. There are several open/accepted feature requests for this however, so it is on the list of things to do. [SCR-163] New PrimitiveParams flag: PRIM_PROJECTOR [SVC-6390] Missing script interface to projected textures [BUG-6961] New PrimitiveParams flag: PRIM_PROJECTOR One option I found, that counts technically as a hacky way to do it, is to have multiple prims with different projector textures but with the same parameters, then cycle through them turning PRIM_POINT_LIGHT of for one and on for the next.
  12. Mirrors, or render targets which is basically a camera print rendering(at a lower resolution) to a meta texture, so we can make mirrors and screens and what not.
  13. These are what I like to call "want to be Lindens" who won't ever be Lindens because of their behavior. They are often the same kind of people who think crashing people with graphics crashers, crashing sims, and other various griefing tactics are suddenly ok for them to do if they are "enforcing the sim rules or ToS". They do nothing but get on my nerves and whenever I see someone trying to enforce rules on a sim I moderate, I estate ban them. Best solution to these people is to look for anything that can be interpreted as impersonating a Linden and AR them for it. 🤣
  14. That I could understand and do find as a reasonable complaint. Perhaps SL could use a word blacklisting system for search? I could find it useful for many other uses other than just blocking graphic descriptions as well, such as those who want to not see furry hangouts, afk sex places, or places with "no furries/animal avatars" in the description, etc.
  15. Oh boy this topic again. We have had it like 50 times and it always ends up locked because fighting. Ok so there are arguments for and against it. Below are my summarized arguments of both sides. A argument against it: A argument for it: So say we do ban it, where to we draw the line? Would gorean/bdsm slavery/etc be banned? Technically in roleplay, the slave isn't consenting as the master has all the say. What about AFK/idle sex places? No one is at the avatar to consent. What about animal RP? Animals do not consent when they mate, they just do it. What if there is a alien race RP where consent isn't a thing and it is just kind of globally accepted by their culture? As you can see it is a bit of a slippery slope. As for morals, what defines one person's morals as correct? As stated above with where we draw the line, morals can be very different from person to person or culture to culture. Some people even say doing adult activities, be it sex for pleasure/reasons other than reproducing, drinking alchohol, gambling(This is banned from SL, but in the case I am talking about is where no money is at stake. Technically gachas can count as gambling), etc, is a sin. Why should we ignore these morals? Additionally it has been mentioned that rape roleplay is done because "men are insecure about their manhood". This is both ironic and offensive. It implies only men are interested in rape roleplay with women, ignoring the fact that there are gay people who also partake in this type of roleplay, and that there are women who also into this type of RP, be it on the receiving or giving side. I myself am pansexual, but I do highly prefer men and I wouldn't mind partaking in such RP. Being a subordinate/bottom, how would I be "intimidating, overpowering and humiliating women" in this case, if I was both the receiving end, male, and with a male partner? Outside of trying to stay neutral: I do try to understand both sides, but rape RP often partakes in closed environments specifically for such type of RP. Those who see it are often actively out looking for it. You can always just not look for or visit these sims or private parcels.
