  1. You could drop duplicates of your magic boxes in other regions & sims, but that only works if it's your region causing delivery problems, such as a region with lag. But that won't help at all if it it's on the Marketplace side, and 90% of the time, that's the case. So I don't know if that would help any but it might not hurt to try and see if your ratio improves.
  2. Welcome to the world of being a Merchant on the SLM. :matte-motes-big-grin-wink: My deliveries have been normal. I'd take it with a grain of salt, phases of failed deliveries happen frequently. It's a coin toss to the changing of the wind, really. You just have to try and work around the difficulty.
  3. Whoa whoa wait. I know this was 2009 but some Linden actually, seriously said in essence: Oh sure, we can offer a 100% delivery rate, but we'll let everyone have constant failed deliveries unless they pay, of course? That's almost too dirty for me to accept as truth.
  4. So the wishlist functionality is still there and operational, they just took away the buttons to ADD anything to your wishlist, and your wishlist page. Wow! That makes tons of sense!
  5. I guess it depends on what you define as "cheap", it also depends what gender you're looking for. Some of the best hair brands in SL range their styles between 199-250. Truth (250$L), Magika (199$L-249$L), Ploom (250$L), fri. (250$L). But these are mostly female hairs, though brands like Truth also have male hair. I don't know of any quality brands for cheaper but someone else might. If you want good quality, you'll probably have to expect something in the 250$L range as that seems to be the standard for hair, but this translates to only 1 US dollar. So it's not ridiculously expensive or anything.

So a user can seriously flag an item and it gets removed without LL checking it out first? They claim they have a Product Listing Review Team (or something) that looks over flagged items and gives the "go" or not on whether the item is delisted due to something incorrect, or if the flag complaint is ignored. But, eh, personally I think it's an automated system of sorts they may glance at every now and then. I don't know, it just seems, on observation, that as soon as an item is flagged, that item is delisted, no middle-man (maybe you're just waiting for the 'reviewer' and it delists it as a precaution, whatever). The only thing you can do when you're a victim of someone gaming the system and getting your items taken down is to contact LL via support ticket and ask them who is smoking what and if you can borrow some, since it's obviously the good stuff. :matte-motes-big-grin-squint:
  7. When I homepage feature my items, it usually takes 30 or 40 refreshes, if not more till I see my product. It's there, but you'll need to refresh a whole lot more times till you find it than THREE. lol
  8. Merchants always get copybotted or have items stolen or copied. It's a fact of life by being a merchant in SL and copybotting/stealing has been prevalent in SL for the past 8 years. All you can really do is file a DMCA. You can't... close down Second Life. I wonder why so many people think they have that power, and go so far as to threaten LL as if they really have 10,000 lawyers capable of magic tricks? :matte-motes-stress: If only the world worked that way. :smileyvery-happy:
  9. *pats* We'll agree it was a misunderstanding, then.

But I wasn't starting a discussion anywhere relating to the userfriendly or unuserfriendly interface of V2? I was saying how it won't slit your mothers' throat and threaten to eat your dog if you use it for 5 minutes to try the new search. lol. wth In the part of your post that I quoted, you will see that you twice suggested trying it out. That's why I quoted that part of your post. If you re-read my response in light of that, you'll understand that what I wrote was nothing to do with your mothers and dogs comment.. The very first line of my response was, "I have tried it out (V2) - more than once - and, by comparison to the V1, it's crap." I would have thought it was clear enough. No no no, you misunderstood what I was suggesting be tried. I suggested to try out the new search. I don't care if people use or like V2. I don't use it myself, but I'm not so stubborn I won't try the new search that can only be accessed at present on V2 (which means people would have to use it for 5 minutes). Refusing to even try the new search because it is on V2 was where my post was aimed. Not people trying V2, because I don't care if people like V2 or use it ever. This was for the sake of the new search. =)

  12. @Toysoldier Thor In the new search, General, Mature, and Adult search results work for me. So that's wrong, it isn't intentionally showing just general. It may be a problem you're having. I'm sure you can report bugs here. It could be that you need to set your maturity settings in V2 or clear your cache.
  13. Some of these posts already, I can't even believe. lol. At this point after begging for something, anything to be changed with search, we should shut up and sit down. I'm not an LL cheerleader, but ANY improvements on search, or any ATTEMPTS to improve search should at least be looked into rather than being blown off by saying call me when you support it for my viewer. 3rd party viewers can support the new search once it's rolled out if they choose to, it's not up to LL. You guys know better. Where's the big obnoxious eyerolling smiley for me to use? I'd understand if V2 holds a knife to your throat and threatens to decapitate your mother, but why can't you test it out? I don't enjoy using V2 but I'm still playing with the new search stuff. So far V2 has not decapitated my mother. I know some of you are very hard to please but it wouldn't hurt you to at least give it a shot, especially if you've been one of the people screaming till you're blue in the face for something, anything towards improving search. After years of being cheesed off, at least go "Hey, thanks for trying!" even if it's not exactly what you want, and then offer suggestions for things it may be lacking. Easy! lol. -- To set example, thank you LL for trying to improve search even if it still doesn't suit some peoples' needs. I like to think we all understand that this is still in beta and you may be accepting intelligent and thoughtful suggestions for improvements. Personally, I think the new search is looking fantastic with amazing potential to lessen the stress and burden amongst the members, and I'm very excited for when it comes out of beta. Wow! I didn't spontaneously combust for realizing someone is trying to improve search. The world is still intact too! Newton's Linden Acknowledgement Theory, eat your heart out.
  14. Hi, Brooke! Thanks for the info. Few quick questions. There's several but they're probably not difficult ones. Just need clarity. "Can I choose between Direct Delivery or Magic Box Delivery? At launch time, you will be able to choose whether your items will use Direct Delivery or Magic Box Delivery."  Does this mean we'll have a permanent decision for our account to use either Direct Delivery or Magic Box Delivery? If so should we change our mind between the two, do we submit a ticket requesting a switch? Does this mean that Magic Box Delivery isn't going to be discontinued and will be kept as the alternative? Also, and will there be a way for merchants to test-drive Direct Delivery before we make a decision if we want to use it? What would be the best way to go about that, like an alt? Or will our accounts be flexible with us being able to switch between the two on our end? Lastly, it's either one or the other right? As in, you can't have some items delivered via Magic Box and others Direct Delivery? Thanks!
