  1. You know what

    blah blah blah...

     

    youre the sort of person who stops any person with genuine concerns about getting value for money or a decent standard of service gettng anywhere on this forum....you must be very proud helping shield linden from views aired on a forum they dont even care about....it took Rod Humble a week to reply to birthday greetings last year and then only because people lampooned him for ignoring them.

    Linden labs have about as much idea of customer care and satisfaction as a crocodile does when its swallowing an antelope....

    as for being rude its the only way to deal with people like you on this forum....

     


  2. Oh dear someone was critical of Lindens - bad move (choose your own populist name for them we know who they are whether you call em linden lab, linden labs, rosedale and co, rods humble pie whatever) and as usual the infinitely more rabid band of brownnosers and ass lickers leapt out with their hatchets to defend a company that doesnt take any notice of criticism - no matter how well reasoned - on this forum anyway..

    All I know is the quality of service in sl isnt as good as it was and that unless you want to become a full blown computer geek and spend hours working on a mesh system the INWORLD building system is stuck in stasis...... anyone with any sense realises tiers are far to high those with sense have realised this and are vacating in droves . No wonder Lindens sensibly stopped letting abandoned land turn yellow immediately. The map would be predominantly  stricken with yellow fever....

    Unfortunately Im addicted to sl and love the initial concept. Unfortunately the way I see it is what modifications are being made are more to the benfit of Lindens and or the computer shops selling the increasingly powerful equipment you need to get the world to run properly.....

     

     


  3. The situation is quite simple ...security provided by the lab is fine without the need for a mass of extra security orbs ban lines and all the rest..... Id love to know how much of a drain ban lines are on sl resources and how many people a day are inconvenienced, crashed out, frozen etc.....everyone who is in favour of ban lines should simply be surrounded by four walls of the dratted things as they clearly love 'em so much and obviously dont enjoy the exploration aspect of sl that much anyway....

     

    Perhaps they could create a continent called Alcatraz and allow the banline lovers to migrate there...... everyone encased in their own pulsing electronic hazard ribbons...

     

     


  4. No viewer seems to operate that well nowadays - I have four installed...I gave up on firestorm...theres currently a ludicrous glitch involving texture mmory which has never been properly resolved - the 'helpers' at firestorm have been giving out the same useless advice for tackling it since 2011....

    sl's own viewer has an appallingly cumbersome chat window so I gave up on that...

    singularity started giving some very odd graphic results so despite the fact I like singularity's layout I had to stop using that too..

    which leaves Catznip most effective on my system - not perfect but better than the others...

    My own opinion is stuff's pretty screwed up at lindens affecting how viewers work amongst other issues....


  5. Theres no need for banlines there's enough security without them or security orbs which, are let's face it, legalised griefing tools as Ive said many times.... people leave junk on your land ban 'em - return their junk...youre at home and you  want privacy ask unwanted guests to leave if they dont ban 'em....no need for stupid ban lines which ruin the supposedly emmersive experience all the ceos at lindens blah on about...

    Boundary crashes are bad enough without ban lines adding an unsightly nusiance.... I also wonder what sort of drain they are on sl resources.

     Ban lines should be deactivated and security orbs and their kin banned.


  6. Funny I can pay in sterling to other games companies not based in the uk.....if lindens are proferring their services here I should be able to pay in sterling, the japanese in yen, people in europe the euro.....

     

    Of course Lindens dont seem to promote them selves as a big international company since the swingeing staff cuts a year or two back.... In any event a massive tier cut for everyone regardless of global location would be a massive boost. Of course the current way Lindens have of dealing with abandoned land means not as much of the map is as yellow as it used to be. ;)


  7. I wonder why the original poster chose to mention the UK...I get the distinct impression he's not from the UK at all..

    ..and in my opinion tiers are too high WHEREVER you live... the tiers remain the same while the service seems to decline continually. Instead of the useless 'premium baubles' that keep been proferred how about a tier cut or an increase in free land. And how about increasing the tier points so that people dont have to make massive leaps to increase their land. Its about time long term customers were rewarded for loyalty despite the continual bollocks ( a nice english word for you) they keep being offered as service....

     

    As for being in the uk admittedly Lindens cant do anything about v.a.t. but they could set the fees and tier amounts in native currency and let us pay through pay pal rather than having to pay in dollars and have the added inconvenience of having to deal with exchange rates - which ever way they go.
