  1. Your Premium membership is prepaid. That is, you paid in advance for Premium membership and will have Premium benefits until the end of the period that you paid for.  If you tell Linden Lab that you want to go back to a Basic membership, they will mark your account as "Pending Downgrade".  You will not be a Basic member until the end of the period that you have already paid for.  You will continue to receive a weekly stipend and you will have access to Premium sandboxes, Live Chat, all Support Case categories, and all of the other Premium benefits except that you will not be able to own a Linden Home or any other land in the Mainland estate.  

    If you are having trouble logging in, it is not likely to be a problem with your status as a Premium or Basic member of SL.  You should still be able to log in, regardless of your status. If your membership status is still "Pending Download", I suggest contacting Live Chat to explain your problem.  As a Premium member, you should be able to do that.  You may also submit a Support Case, regardless of your membership status.

  2. I am not a sailor myself, so I do not know how the Bandit is scripted or what options the designer may have built into it.  You might ask, though.  Some scripters (like me, on occasion) will add a special channel that broadcasts selected messages ( or sends them by llMessageLinked ) so that you can pick them up with a custom script.

  3. Simply opening a channel isn't enough.  Your script has to have a listen event in which it receives messages on the open channel and does something with them.  In your case, something very simple should do the job

    listen (integer channel, string name, key id, string message)
        llSay(0, message);

    Study the LSL Wiki ..... http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlListen#Examples

    That's rather silly, of course, since you are already hearing the message in chat.  Therefore, I assume that you want do do something else with it. That something else goes in the listen event.

     If i were you i'd try to do some kind of RL thing.. share what you can and for example a garage sale.

    I agree.  You're likely to be able to raise more money outside of SL.  Also, with the exception of some well-established and well trusted funds like Race for Life, fundraising efforts in SL are usually met with a high degree of skepticism.  There's nobody watching to be sure that they aren't ripoffs.

    I though buying was much more easier I don’t get the whole real estate thing 

    Second Life is really a lot like RL.  All the land here is owned by somebody.  If you want land to live on, you can either buy the land for a one-time price and then pay monthly fees to Linden Lab -- think of it like property taxes or a condo fee -- or you can rent it and pay a weekly or monthly fee -- rent -- to whoever owns it.  If you live on land, you pay somebody all the time.  Is one way easier than the other?  Not really, and both are a LOT easier to handle than they are in SL. 

    If you want a good introduction to the basics of buying and maintaining land, lake a look through the land articles in the Knowledge Base ( tab at the top of this page ) and then consider going to Lindal Kidd's free class are Caledon Oxbridge University, in world.  She teaches it every Saturday, and she's always glad to answer questions.

  6. See the Second Life logo at the top of this page, with the blue hand?  Click it.  😉

    Really.  It works.  We asked for it first thing when they introduced this InVision forum software a few years ago.

  7. Don't worry. That's a very small amount of money, only about 40 cents in USD.  You either have a quiet admirer or an accidental friend.  If you feel at all bold (or friendly), IM and thank the person.  If not, just smile to yourself and walk away.  If there's a tiny chance that the L$ were stolen, you have covered yourself by submitting that AR.

  8. Cool.  Then I would expect it to trade fairly soon.  The longer your offer sits in the queue, the closer it gets to the top.  Once others that were placed before yours are completed, you're up.  As I said, that's usually been within a couple of days for me.  If a lot of people suddenly dump L$ on the market at a higher rate, or if the number of residents buying L$ drops off a bit, it could take longer.  If you start to feel desperate -- if your land fee payment is due tomorrow, for example -- you might want to improve your chances by canceling that order and placing a new one at L$240.

    What's the longest it could possibly take,from your experience? 🙂

    It really all depends on how far you set your offering price from the rate where the greatest sales volume is at the moment.  When I am selling L$, I look to see where most sales are taking place and make a sell offer that is within L$ of that price.  When I do that, a sale usually goes through within a couple of days.  The greatest volume of sales ATM is at L$238/$1.  If you set an offering price much below about L$237/$1, I would expect it to take a week or more.  Of course, if the market goes up in the meantime, your sale could take forever.

  10. Hello and welcome to Second Life.  This is not a game, at least not by most gamer standards.  It's a social platform, an economic system, a building environment .......  whatever.  You don't earn points or gain levels.  You don't slay dragons or capture territory.  It's very similar to Real Life, in which you can create things, start a business, chat with people, dance, buy or sell property, ....  It is, in fact, a second life.

    To learn the mechanics, start reading articles in the Knowledge Base (link at the top of this page), starting with 


    Then, consider visiting welcome/tutorial areas in world, like Caledon Oxbridge University or NCI, or go back to Social Island, where you should have landed as a new resident already.

  11. According to the Knowledge Base, a Display may contain

    • A string of characters up to 31 characters long  that contains at least one alphanumeric character. It can include most Unicode script characters, spaces, and some punctuation.

    It then defines 

    Allowed characters

    In addition to letters and numbers, you can use the following characters in your display name:

    • ' (apostrophe)
    • - (hyphen-minus)
    • . (full stop)
    • : (colon)
    • · (middle dot)
    • ֊ ֊  (Armenian hyphen)
    •  (Hebrew geresh)
    • ״ (Hebrew gershayim)
    •  (Tibetan tsheg)
    • - (hyphen)
    •  (right single quotation mark)
    •  (hyphenation point)
    • = (katakana-hiragana double hyphen)
    • · (katakana middle dot)

    As Molly says, the characters in 𝓑𝓪𝓷𝔃𝓪𝓲𝓚𝓲𝓽𝓽𝓮𝓷 may look like letters but as far as SL is concerned, they are not legal Unicode script characters.  If you get lucky, you can sometimes find fonts that are acceptable, but it's best to stick to the standard set that people and LSL scripts can read easily.

    I agree, but like a person who dislike or hate the things better not to say but she wasn't, she was speak out with her voice call in front of me. I don't think she was joke because she called me ugly and didn't had to greeted me, so I left the Alantori store and teleport to home. I leaves her alone

    If that is the worst thing that happens to you, you are doing quite well.  The words of a total stranger have no value.  You did the right thing by walking away.
