  1. Changing vendors to "some vendors" is just nitpickicking, trying to make the issue sound lighter. Of course there are vendors that won't work the system. And I'd thank them for not trying to manipulate reviews. But I've seen it happen.. so.. many times.
  2. Even if it's just making it "Rating: lowest to highest" work like it should? Because I've tried that and it does nothing.
  3. No. I just think all reviews should be searchable. It's not a question of finding out if reviews are shill or not. Its about letting SMART customers be able to use the sort dropdown for "Rating: lowest to highest" to prioritize negative reviews and heed what warnings others may have. I've seen reviews that I DID NOT delete suddenly disappear. Not sure if the site's broken or my browser doesn't like the sorter. I hope it is, though.
  4. Actually, I redact that post. This is somewhat different. It's more than just marketplace bullying, its about how vendors can also employ shady tactics to try and bury negative reviews. ESPECIALLY shill reviews. The vendor either: a) creating new accounts, using alts to review their product positiively b) getting friends or otherwise coercing others into reviewing their product positive. I just hate how they can, in effect, null out negative reviews. I can't even search my own in the few products I've reviewed negatively.
  5. Yes, this is about reviews, but it is not the way you'd likely imagine it. I'm not a vendor, I'm a buyer. I don't expect a lot of support, but at least hear me out. The marketplace is already unfairly geared in favor of the vendor. It seems.. every time I don't give a FULL FIVESTAR "OMG THIS PRODUCT IS THE EPITOME OF MY EXISTENCE" review, the creator (and this usually always happpens with women) comes to bite my head off and try to bully me into changing my review! Of course even if I don't, the review seems to magically disaapear the next day! (again, the system is unfairly geared in favor of the vendor) A) The review process needs to be revamped. DON'T allow vendors to just filter out negative reviews and choose reviews that they no doubt 'hired', had friends do, etc. Don't tell me it doesn't happen. And don't tell me it doesn't take over the ENTIRE marketplace because it does. I've been the first to review, then the NEXT DAY, two magical reviews show up to bury mine. All reviews should be searchable! If someone wants to know about bad reviews, they should at least be able to use the sorter to show "Rating: Lowest to highest" to try and circumvent the vendor's dirty tactics. Reviews are for reviews, not an avenue for advertisement. B) Have an option in the "Report Abuse" menu specifically for vendors that are trying to pressure buyers into changing their reviews. This is nothing short of bullying. The marketplace needs a change. This is getting old.

  7. It would seem so. At least I have the TOS box up for me. I don't know what's changed since Linden Lab isn't commenting on it, which I'm pretty sure is against some laws.
  8. The one true answer: It won't get you banned from SL, but if you're in an RP (roleplay) sim, the sim owner has the right to ban and disallow whoever they like. WHAT THEY LIKELY MEANT is the sim owner could have you banned. This makes sense from a roleplay perspective. In roleplay sims, not acknowledging someone can have a big impact on the roleplay as a whole. Imagine he's starting a fight scene reeaally close to your character. And you have him blocked? Other RPers will be wondering why the heck you're just standing there like nothing happened... because you couldn't see his text to begin with. Having a block list is unfortunately not wise if you ever hope to RP on a sim with blocked avatars RPing on the sim. Instead, I'd take it up with an admin of the sim/group and tell them your reasons for why you want them to stay away.
  9. Just logged into SL and got the TOS pop-up. I try to make it a habit NOT to blindly hit agree on these things.
  10. Honestly, I'd prefer to just have invites negate the fee. It makes sense. It will cut down on the spam, and people would be more likely to invite only if they really want that person in their group.
  11. Simply stop going to the contests. I know I stopped going to clubs that wanted to enstate and "everyone wins" policy... I don't go to clubs much anymore. Lol. I miss one person getting the entire pot, not EVERYONE that got even a single vote getting a portion of the pot. I get the reasoning behind it, though. jwenting wrote: RL many sports and other competitions require participants to pay an entrance fee, Yeah, but this isn't real life. And this shouldn't become a precedent. It's things like this that deter traffic and in turn deter users from using SL at all.
  12. Lol. The antialiasing issue. My AA's the exact opposite. On my ATI Radeon HD 4670, it applies AA regardless of whether I have it set or not. This is NOT due to a graphics driver override. I have all settings set to use application settings and it applies AA no matter what. Only time it seems to work right is if I use a TPV (I usually stick to Phoenix, but this happens REGARDLESS of the viewer I use) and turn on shadow rendering. When I try to change AA settings on a vanilla viewer, to add, it turns the screen black with only the bloom from the water bleeding through. I never JIRA'd it, though, due to the minor nature of it. I can still operate normally.
