  1. Have you ever bought L$ before? If you have never bought L$, your trading limit has probably never been activated. Buying even a dollar or two should do the trick. Then you should be able to sell too.
  2. To prevent this from happening in the future, remember Rule #1 for personal security on the Internet: Never share your passwords or other account information with anyone.
  3. There usually aren't a lot of folder options in your Documents & Setting directory, so I can't imagine that it's all that hard to even open them at random until you find the right one. The username on your computer is the one that you use to log in with, when you open Windows. Unless you typed your own name in when you set up your computer, it may have defaulted to something generic like Administrator.
  4. You can oprn your Develop menu (CTRL + Alt + Q and click on Show Info >> Show Color Unde Cursor. That will put a real-time RGB display in the extreme lower right corner of your screen and let you monitor the color of whatever your cursor rests on. You should know, however, that any match you get will be fleeting. Color changes with time of day, sun angle, Windlight Settings ..... too many things to make your measurements reliable for more than a few seconds. Yoiu can get close, but that's all.

    I'm glad you know what this means, Val.
  6. As you apparently recognize, this is a resident-to-resident forum. There are no Lindens here. If you have an idea for a new feature, the way to propose it is to create a JIRA report. Go to http://jira.secondlife.com and click the +Create Issue link in the upper right corner. Then choose the proper option from the drop-down menu for proposing a new feature.
  7. Have you tried each of the suggestions that we gave you the first time that you asked? Did you change viewers, for example?
  8. Set a timer, move up incrementally ( llSetPos(llGetPos() + <0.0,0.0,0.1>) ) until you reach a height limit, then reverse direction. Rinse and repeat. To save unnecessary server time usage when nobody is around, consider starting the timer when a visitor triggers a sensor of some kind, and then turn it off when there's no one there.
  9. Unfortunately, you may have tripped over a bug in the system. Take a look at https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-6608? and see if it feels like your problem. If so there's only one solution. You have to figure out how to leave whatever group you had active at the time you logged out. If you can go in as an alt, as Knowl suggested, try to contact the group's owner and explain that you need to be ejected from the group. If that doesn't work, you'll have to file a support ticket and see if LL can drop you from it.
  10. There are many reasons for that very common problem. What works for one person won't necessarily work for the next person, and it may not be the same thing that works for you tomorrow. See the full list of possibilitites here >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_bake_fail . Start with the simple things at the top of the list and work down until you find what works for you today.
  11. You can try using the Map API >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Map_API_Introduction . Look at the section on Accessing Map Images Directly and note that the highest zoom level (8) shows you the entire world.
  12. Do you log out of the site when you leave it, or do you just close your browser window? There is a Log Out link in the far upper right corner of the page, next to your name.
  13. NO. That stupid rumor has been running around for at least as long as I have been in SL. It just won't die. Let me quote Rhett Linden (with his permission), who told the SL Educators list on September 21, "I wanted to set the record straight. We are not planning to do anything with your accounts or alt accounts. It's in our interest to ensure you have access to your account."
  14. Angel is right. You will be very lucky to get any SL viewer to run on your machine. It has an inadequate graphics card and very low memory in CPU. If you can enter with the old 1.23 viewer, be prepared to use Low graphics settings so that you don't have excessive lag
  15. Sorry, there really isn't. Live Chat is a service for Premium members as part of the benefit package they get for paid membership. If you choose not to have a paid membership --- as I don't either --- then you aren't entitled to the benefit. You have two choices now: (1) Pay for Premium membership, which is a rather minimal cost for the year or (2) enter SL with an alt account. There are open JIRA reports on the illegal character issue (See https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-6608, for example), so you may want to add your own observations there, if you think they will help LL's develo
  16. No, this is not Live Chat. If you ever need Live Chat, just go to https://support.secondlife.com/contact-support/. If you are a Premium member, the link should be on the right side of the page. The answer to your SSL question is easy, however. Close your web browser and log in again with the Internet Explorer browser. You should be able to navigate to the profile page with it. When you have done that once, your computer will have the proper certificate for the site, so you may go back to using your preferred browser. For the future ... If you have a question for us in Answers, please start a

I am told that ISPs in the UK, for example, often ration bandwidth at peak usage times. If you are entering the Internet from a corporate site, your company's IT managers may also restrict heavy bandwidth use during office hours. In the U.S., many college campuses do that in residence halls as well.

Start with the simple things at the top of the list and work down until you find what works for you today. If the problem really does occur every time you log in, then you have a chronic connection problem that needs to be addressed. Pay close attention to your router, which is often the weakest link
  20. From http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Clean_Install: If you are receiving an error when starting the Second Life viewer that says your graphics card is unsupported or your graphics drivers are out of date and you know that your card meets the system requirements, than this procedure will most often correct the problem. Usually this message appears when you have upgraded from a previous version of Windows, or when a Windows Update conflicts with an installed graphics driver. It can also mean that Windows Update has installed a graphics driver for you that does not have full support for Second

I see all of my SL friends in world regularly, so I have no need for that site.
  22. Opening a business is extremely easy. If you want to sell through Marketplace, all you need to do is follow the instructions here >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Selling-in-the-Marketplace/ta-p/700193 . It doesn't cost you a thing to place items there for sale. LL takes a 5% commission on anything your sell, and you can pay through the nose for special ad placement outside of your store. Other than that, though, there are no direct costs. Selling through an in-world shop is almost as easy. You will need to rent a shop somewhere, so that's a recurri
  23. @Marigold --- Way to make me feel really old, Mari. I remember 48 ..... about 20 years ago. :smileysad: I agree with both Val and Marigold. I can't understand the hype about FB and Twitter. Nothing beats sitting down face to face in a coffee shop. Social networks seem terribly pointless and inane to me.
