I go from my dashboard (where I am signed in) to Community then forums and suddenly find I am not signed in anymore. So I sign in and it sort of winks at me and says "oh yeah, you were signed in, weren't you." so it shows me as signed in again but also moves me back to blogs. So then I select forums again and I look for Offtopic which I have "floated" so it will be on top and it's a different (smaller) font and shows me one post. But I'm really determined so I click on the tiny Off topic header to get into the off topic section anyway. And here I see you babbling on about how great it is here now that noone is arguing. That's because most people gave up already. I guess I'm trying to be positive, though just to be pedantic, I didn't exactly say it was great here now that people aren't arguing; I said, well, meant, that it was great per se that people aren't arguing. But I do agree it's not 'great' here....I have the same problems you have stated above, plus I have never yet managed to get any of my floated threads to stay at the top, nor have I ever seen an off topic header...! where is that, pray tell? Unless you mean the one that's just below an off topic thread? I haven't seen one of those for ages too. The only way I got back to this one was by clicking on the link in the email. Although it's very peaceful here now, I am going to eat my words and say 'well, it is kind of dull and there are folks I miss and it's a shame they aren't here'. *sighs*

(I could not even finish my whiskas... :smileytongue:) Ahh, Valerie! Glad to see you, was getting a bit worried there for a minute. Didn't get chance to thank you before for providing the boat and the food, don't know how we'd have survived without it! In fact, I was almost too stuffed to crawl the last few yards!. Thanks to Quinn too, for the drinks and lighting!

Glad you made it safely! *clicks fingers in general direction of the high heeled waitress...* "See that guy there, near the pool?....yeah, long hair, chilled, yeah, that's him...keep his glass filled will you? Bourbon, diet coke....whatever...see that he gets it, okay?. Great, thanks!" *winks to Hippie*.

Done, you will get the halo back if you update now. I decided not to use the userstyles.org optional feature thing, bcause it is not compatible with the update feature. Instead, there is one new tiny style for the semitransparent background, "community.secondlife.com - make username readable". This can be installed (or not) independently of the others. Yaay, thank you, thank you, thank you Cerise! You are suuuuper cool!

There is no really satisfying solution to that problem, is there? :smileysad: There is a feature on the userstyles site that can let features like this be optional at download time, I will add that next time, OK? Cool, you are so cool, thank you.

  9. Cerise wrote: Hi, there are a few tweaks in today's blue goo update, click the update thing in Stylish if you care about any of these. The white "Halo" shadow is gone on the usernames, replaced by a semitransparent white background. It is a little less kind to the badge images, but much easier to read the names. Some page number and statistics text was the wrong color. On some thread pages, long names collided with the sidebar when the font size was set to large. Now I plaster it over with a sidebar background [ that is what LL does too ]. Cerise, I updated but I actually preferred the 'halo' thing....is it possible to go back to it? sorry.

Jaen, if you upload pictures to use in posts you do have to keep them afterwards. All I see now in your collection of pictures when I visit your 'About' page are smilies. So remember : don't delete pictures you uploaded which you have used in postst or they will be deleted within the posts as well. Would like you to retry if you don't mind to have a look at this home you share. Are you okay Wilhiam? :smileysad: Thanks for this tip too, I'm so clueless! :smileytongue:

I happily contributed to that thread (and I think no one can say that I lack of humour) but the spirit was totally different in my perception. I find there's an icy censorship wind now in SL Forums and as I'm substantially against all kind of censorship, I can but mourn over the new Forum, and especially the disappearance of GD. The very fact that some people rejoice on the way it has been reduced to is reason enough to be sad ! That GD has been reduced to kindergarten space is reason enough to weep ! Sole? Didn't realise it was you. Sorry, yes, you were there and no you don't lack humour. But this thread is not rejoicing at the new forums per se, it is rejoicing at the fact that no one is arguing, basically. Plus, I was in the middle of posting an 'ending' to the previous thread when the old forums shut down, so it was left hanging, as it were...I don't like loose threads. As for the lack of a GD, there is this hidden 'off-topic' thing, which kind of makes up for it don't you think? I agree the general atmosphere is rather lacklustre, probably due to the censorship, yes, but people are making the best of it; there is a sense of hope too, I feel.
  12. Thanks to Venus, I am now able to post pics of the home I share with my Master in Gor. He owns the house, the platform is mine and I'm hoping I can learn to terraform it to make it a bit more interesting; we don't have many prims so it's a bit sparse. We love it nevertheless though. Kind of an odd mixture, an old, gothicky house on a beach, but hey, we're Gorean and we love the sea! The flags are 'His and hers', I love the flapping noise they make in the wind. View from front porch. The ship is actually a prim statue set against the screen. I made a little rock pool with plants and rocks and fish etc that I put out when we sit out here....and a lounger, etc...(should have put them out to take the pic actually). I could do so much here with more prims. We started off with traditional Gorean but a few 'earth' things have crept in....like the fishtank, the Intan, etc... This is looking towards my Masters office/study. I'm relaxing on my soft pink fur larl rug.(He is offline, *grins*). Looking towards the bedroom, (there are only 3 rooms). On the right is His throne and the Dais I built Him as a surprise. On the left is a memorial candle for my late ex 'chain-sis'...that goes everywhere I go. He let me have free rein on the decorating so I persuaded Him to have the bigger room for His office, coz it looked so nice with the bright rug in there and the desk, etc. Then we put the bed in the bedroom, oops...! He offered to swap but I said 'nah, we only need a bed in here anyway!' *grins*.

I don't understand why pics come out different sizes.. :smileymad: It may be because your images are .PNG. Make them .JPEG and they should work. Each image cannot be more than 500K. Ahh, that was it...Thank you Venus! )

Looking around at the happy forumites, some playing deck games, some chattering excitedly in groups, some talking seriously in a quiet corner, old friends and new, differences put aside/forgotten, banding together in this time of change, she smiles contentedly. Aahh, peace reigns at last! **Only uploaded images may be used in postings**://i.ytimg.com/vi/saalGKY7ifU/default.jpg','vid':'saalGKY7ifU','external':'youtube','originalheight':'0','size':'large','align':'center'}" /> I'm afraid you didn't get all the information. A lot of "happy" forumites realized they were happy BEFORE this new platform, mourned the disappearance of GD and decided to throw themselves into the ocean. Some others joined gV AND ENJOY IT GREATLY. Some, still, linger not knowing what to do and some...ahh.. yes... some seem to revel in the fact that, finally, they can reign uncontrasted. This is the bare (sad) truth. Eh? What are you talking about? This is a follow up thread (with humourous intent), aimed at the forumites who were 'there' meaning 'there' in the previous thread....the majority of whom are here in the new platform and are getting along nicely, with no hostility or arguments. How long that will last, one cannot say, but I prefer to remain optimistic.
