As was mentioned here. Note that whatever searching sanctions LL might impose on accounts currently in dispute, I'm more that happy to attempt a search at my own personal peril if the OP is willing to reveal the account name, which so far, hasn't occurred.

Trust me, in my first profile was written "payment info used" with about 1350 days if this was your doubt.Yes im an alt, and the question is: what is happening is normal? in what concerns the way you write, you seem to be irritated by something, and do not understand why. Not at all sir, in fact it's probably not humanly possible for an individual to care less, but if you weren't already, you should be aware that this forum is the favoured second choice for complaints by underage, serial griefing and generally 'troubled' folks who have been banned for whatever reason, to come and tell their one-sided stories on the misguided understanding that somebody important is listening. I know a smart fellow like yourself won't make that mistake.
  3. Luca Giordano wrote: Alec, read in my profile -----questo è un alter---- means "this is an alter", my first account is not available and not visible in search -.-" As you're posting in the english forums, let me repeat your translation free of charge. "I am an alt" Now since I'm the curious type, which particular account was banned? The alt you're posting under or the other account you're not mentioning, but which LL have decided is phoney?

  5. Ah, well I'm far from an expert, but my understanding is that LL won't enter into a debate with you while they suspect you might be a 13yo kid, regardless of whether you're premium or not. Sounds like you'll need to go through the process of waiting until they confirm you are who you say you are. You might choose to use this period to reflect on why you're being repeatedly chased for identity confirmation...
  6. Maybe by explaining the missing half of the story, this question will become clear. Why are you suspended?
  7. Apologies for not spoon feeding you with an answer requiring even less effort on your part Charolotte, however if you invested some necroposting time into xstreet searching, you'd likely be wearing your new avatar now.
  8. You could run one of the text-only clients, but that's probably not the experience you're looking for. The netbook is going to be an even greater challenge..
  9. Probably not the smartest move to be naming those people here dude.

  11. Just mute them as they appear. It takes him far longer to create a bogus account than it takes you two to mute it forever. I mean, it's a fake virtual world.. how bad could it possibly be in the larger scheme of things?

Perception is very important since the common user doesn't read or understand the TOS, one reason is easy, it isn't written is the correct language.Ok now I'm beginning to see where you're coming from. You're talking about an aggrieved user bringing LL (USA) before a court in a foreign land, right? With those simple questions it's plausible a judge (in France) will rule L$ *is* a currency. With the amount of L$ available in-world that same judge could rule that LL is in fact a bank. I guess this is quite possible if somebody has the cash and motivation to take their favourite online hobby to the highest courts in the land. It becomes specially interesting when someone claims that "If LL goes bankrupt it will influence the economy". What would be the critical amount of L$ to make that last a valid statement? Since it *is* possible. And since it *is* possible the TOS is not applicable anymore and politicians (we all trust) could take over. I'm not sure which economy you could be referring to. A tiny litigious African nation with an overwhelming number of SL users? In any western country where this sort of action might originate, I'm guessing the SL turnover of cash is far less than that of the major supermarket chains and their 'frequent shopper' type of monetary rewards. As far as influencing national economies goes, I suspect SL is a long way from appearing on anybodys radar. At the end of the day, it would require somebody kooky enough and sufficiently funded to test their case throughout the major courts of the realm. Since SL users are not generally known for their high degree of disposable income, I'll assume this is not going to happen in our lifetime.
  13. Vick.Forcella wrote: I wonder what lawyers of different countries would say. A challange of this would be very interesting specially since the TOS is not applicable no matter what it tells. I'm not sure where lawyers would fit into the picture. L$ is no more listed on the worldwide currencies market than is a coupon for a free car wash. What would the lawyers be challenging? TOS is even more irrelevant.
  14. ↑ What Lissa said. They've gone about as far as they can without having to deal with the hassles of a real currency and the associated currency market (not a place that a relatively small company wants to go).
  15. Sugarlips.Shackleton wrote: Precisely. So why should I have to be incessantly reminded of that?Incessantly? How many times could you possibly be clicking the 'New Script' button? At this point, your question is probably best directed to LL via the ticket or Jira mechanisms. It's two harmless words which appear in your local chat (if you even happen to be looking) upon creation on a new script, demonstrating common state entry and message echo functions, and is just as quickly gone forever with the 'Ctrl-A' and 'Del' keypresses. I can't picture a scenario where this could possibly bother anybody, and with the practice presumably having been around since the early days of LSL, I've never so much as heard a whisper from the most critical person that it could be perceived as a source of bother. Here's a suggestion. Create your scripts from an empty template you keep in your inventory, dragging into whatever prim needs them. No more incessant 'Hello Avatar' messages causing untold annoyance.
  16. Sugarlips.Shackleton wrote: Oops, I think I maybe should have clicked Helpful on this, but thought I only saw two replies after the first one. Will consider all these possibilities when I'm creating scripts, thanks. Nobody has mentioned any actual utility of the "Hello, Avatar!" message, which confirms my impression of its being something of a nuisance. A harmless nuisance, perhaps tolerable, but annoying to me nonetheless. The phrase 'Hello World' has been a sort of default entry point task in the learning of many, if not most, programming languages for decades, since echoing text to the screen is about as simple as it gets. Safe to say the SL default is a pun based on that, though I never considered that it had the potential to be so offensive. Personally, I just delete it and get on with life.
  17. She wants a bald head to replace it. They're everywhere and hair often includes one. Failing that, let me know and I'll send one over next time I log in.
  18. Shhh don't say that or there'll be another explosion of people wanting one to reduce their prim count while rezzing a forest and giant buildings.
  19. Faubio.Alter wrote: ?????? Why would you think this ??????? Sure it will while it's rezzed. Objects rezzed with the 'temp' attribute set don't contribute to parcel prim limits.. This is why there are so many people trying to get away with it.
  20. Temp rezzers are also frowned upon by LL and will likely be returned to you if they need to look at your sim for any reason, or somebody complains (more so on mainland, but private sims probably won't appreciate it for the same reasons). Keep in mind that you're not creating an additional prim allowance out of thin air as some of the folks selling these devices would have you believe, but rather borrowing from the temp prim resources intentionally set aside for each sim. As soon as that causes somebody else a problem, then they shine a light on your sim and you're busted. Clever use of prims, sculpts and textures in a build to keep the prim count down is probably the better way to go if you can.

  23. It's somewhere between ground level and 4000m in the air. Turn up your draw distance enough if need be, so that all of your land is within rez range, place your back toward one of the parcel boundaries so you're looking inward, and start flying straight up until you spot it. (note the flight feather advice above). Or if you're lazy like me, rez a cube at ground level, sit on it and while in edit mode, set it's Z position to 4000m. Instant elevator! Then stand up (flying), delete the cube, and freefall while looking around on the way down. On a small parcel you might even land on the same skybox you're looking for. It's really not as complicated as I just made it sound.
