  1. Things on his tophat: -weave belt -swim goggles -a small lightbulb *and something IN his tophat Other oddities: -Casio on a bike chain -sliding door lock with chain on his jacket -a ruffle-print t-shirt -ripped gardening gloves -a faux "DaVinci" wing on his bicycle that looks like it's made out of a sheet and a pillowcase (?) propped up by a push broom -a PVC pipe spyglass
  2. It's not just low numbers on Steam, it's low numbers PERIOD. And not just low numbers, but EMBARASSINGLY low numbers. Wookey basically bought a pared-down version of SL from Linden Labs, who themselves were then sold to an investment group. The ongoing pay dispute and the fact that they can't pay their employees seems like a *tad* bit of a problem too, you know, apart from the empty game. I've got plenty of criticism for SL but yikes, that's on another level there.
  3. I put the item in the Merchant Outbox instead of the listing window. I think that's what made it kerplunk. It worked fine after I did it the right way. I didn't realize there was a right-click menu option for that. I'll use that next time. I messed it up about three times before I got it right. I thought I could just figure it out by pushing buttons like I normally do, but not this time.
  4. Oh, I think I did something wrong. I dropped it into my merchant outbox instead of Marketplace Listings. I think I got it figured out. I'm following the wiki page on setting up listings now.
  5. I didn't actually include any keywords. I just dropped the goggles into the Merchant folder. I didn't even create a listing for it yet. Am I missing some part of the process? Drop in folder, then create the listing on the market page, right?
  6. Edit: Instead of using the Marketplace Listings, I dragged it directly into the merchant outbox, which seems to be what messed it up. I haven't uploaded my products to the new marketplace since Xstreet/SLX was shut down. I just tried to drop an item in my merchant folder today and got a nastygram. Is there something wrong with the name for this? Does it have something to do with the "SJ-24?" Did I use the word "steam" too much?
  7. Well thanks Claire. I used to use Onrez/SLB and XSL. XSL paid out within minutes and SLM basically is XSL, just torn apart and hacked back together. I'm just leary of firstly finding a decent third party exchange and then it being bought out by LL. Can you recommend any reputable exchanges specifically?
  8. Seriously...how many transfers do I have to do (numerous) and how many years do I need to be a resident with verified payment information on account (8 years) before it stops taking 1, 2, 3, 4 weeks to get a PayPal transfer done? Do I need to sign up for some premium program before the one guy they apparently have in charge of transfers who works an hour a day will look at my stuff?
  9. You could have just linked to the original College Humor website where it came from, instead of making people muck through Hulu ads.
  10. Buy stuff from merchants with good reviews (not just shill reviews). Don't just buy the most expensive or the most cheap. As far as boycotting/protesting LL goes...they were already inefficient and ineffective before they fired a third of their staff...somehow I don't think complaining is going to change that. But do feel free to put in a support ticket.
  11. Amazing...and it only took 2 days? There must have been some rare celestial alignment event.
  12. Welcome to Second Life, an open source, virtual playground for real life douchebags.
  13. I'm pretty sure you and your SL boyfriend breaking up might have had something to do with revealing your real life gender to him. That kinda stuff doesn't really surprise me but the ridiculous amounts of drama is why I have made it a point not to engage in "relationships" in SL, be they real, virtual or a combination of the two. I can't help but think if you just ignored this alleged "bully" that would be the end of it. However, on the various websites and forums you've posted this stuff too it seems like you're more obsessed about the whole deal than the supposed bully is. And if you are indeed being cyber-trolled then constantly calling this person out publicly (which I see you edited out) is only providing them with fodder. Also, I couldn't help but also notice the following from the exact same thread you posted in the SLU forums under your SLU name Virtual.Barbie, which makes me wonder if some of this drama isn't self-inflicted.

  14. Linden Labs deals with Griefers the same way they deal with Billing Inquiries...wait a few weeks and see if you stop complaining. <_<
  15. Even better than wearing a Garlic Necklace is SL's built in ignore/block function. :matte-motes-asleep:
  16. Well, my personal advice is don't do anything on an alt account that you wouldn't want others to know about on your main account. That's if you care deeply about what others think about your main or alt's activities in SL. That probably doesn't help you but...that's my advice.
  17. How to start a successful skin business in SL: (for entertainment purposes only, not actually good advice) 1. Download Eloh Eliot's free skin templates. 2. Spend a minute or two and make a couple very minor changes here or there, like changing a color or hue. 3. Give your skins some snazzy names like, "Samantha", "Melissa" or even "Daniel"...ooh! 4. Take one skin, adjust the saturation/color on it at least 10 times each. Make each one a separate product. 5. Viola! Your skin business is ready! 6. If anyone points out these are Eloh Eliot skins with little or no changes at all, with your CAPSLOCK ON tell them that you, A: Have never heard of Eloh Eliot! B: Made them yourself. C: Only used them as a reference, and totally made all these changes and stuff which makes them worth (at least) 3000L per skin. 7. BONUS File DMCAs and Abuse Reports on anyone else using Eloh Eliot templates for their skins because they're obviously ripping you off. P.S. I actually encountered someone before who was selling EE's skins (without even bothering to change anything) and claiming they were her own original skins. When I pointed out to her (facetiously) that this Eloh Eliot person was "ripping them off" from her she actually agreed with me. <_<
  18. "Thanks Ariel - Yes she has submitted a ticket but to date the only response she has had is some crazy email from them about not accepting gift cards - no idea what that was about!" This is pretty much spot on for LL support. In fact, it's amazing you guys got that response even though it obviously has nothing to do with your situation. Still...it's a response! According to my calculations about 2 months after you've already lost your land and then subsequently rallied an outcry on the forums about it someone in support should be able to fix this for you...after you file another ticket... :matte-motes-bored:
  19. Global Economic tanking has had an obvious impact on SL in the past years. Putting aside IRL economic factors SL has still always been a risky investment. People who think they're going to buy some land then open "TEH HAWTEST CLUB IN SL!!!!!!!!" have always been the butt of jokes. They're basically an allegory for people who have absolutely no idea what they're doing, how to market, promote, manage, etc. They think they can just buy some land, slap a generic building on it, add some lights and rake in the money. Remember, people are cheap, especially in SL. If you want to make money you have to provide a good service and hopefully appeal to a niche. There are a handful of residents with good business sense but there's innumerous ones that merely make money by ripping off other merchants and scamming people. At any rate, before you embark on any financial endeavor in SL that requires a lot of out of pocket money I advise you make a detailed plan and maybe consult with some people who have similar businesses and are willing to share good advice. Crunch the numbers. If you add them up correctly, you should show a visible loss Seriously, though... ^^ Also, have a product/business/product line and marketing/promotion set up or planned before you start buying land. Otherwise, you're just as likely to sit there with a big empty plot of land for months losing money and if you start promoting it before there's any product/service available then you're screwing yourself on top of that.
  20. Well, anyway... The reason I'm irked is because this is delaying my purchase of Worms Ultimate Mayhem, which I believe is a reasonable gripe. However, I did find a great explanation as to why it takes forever times infinity for LL to process Paypal transfers here: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Linden-Dollars-L/Why-is-my-money-quot-in-progress-quot-from-lindex-to-paypal-SO/qaq-p/697956 Apparently, instead of using Mass Pay, LL prefers to get their sticky hands in the peanut butter jar and process/approve the transactions manually themselves. I'm assuming their is one guy assigned to this task, who is also assigned to many other tasks who maybe works half a day and most certainly doesn't do holidays and weekends...ever, so it's more like one reluctant sticky finger. I thought my 2+ weeks on my last request was bad but apparently there are people going on a month or more routinely. Efficiency and customer service at it's finest. I think it's funny, because when you're putting money in or when LL is taking money out for premium/land fees that money is gone quicker than a jackrabbit in a Texan analogy. I suppose the mere fact that you have to wait an average of two weeks in itself is a safety measure because if you actually monitor your account that gives you a good two weeks to catch any transfers you may have not made, if your account became compromised.
  21. For more accurate results if any, Google the phrase, like so with quotes: "victoria resident" "second life"
  22. I gotta say as a resident going on 8 years SL gets olds after a while. I'd imagine it's at least doubly so for Torley.
