  1. A bandage thingee? You mean a separate piece, like a sash or something? Or something that is drawn on the suit itself? If it's a separate piece, just don't wear it. If it's part of the suit, though, there's probably not much you can do about it. Maybe buy a new suit? :smileytongue:
  2. From what you said, it sounds as if you are crashing, not disconnecting. That's comforting in a way, because it means that you probably don't have a hardware problem like overheating or a dying router. It's hard to know exactly what the problem is, though. You can add more information to your question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and then selecting Edit. It might help, for example, if you could tell us whether you are getting a specific error message or if there's a a trigger than seems to make you crash (like teleporting, for example). Meanwhile, take a look at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=gesture_issues for one possibility that sometimes leads to a failure after you have been in world for a short time.
  3. There are many variations on the hunt idea. The basic idea, though, is to find a poorly-hidden sign somewhere in each participating shop and click on it to receive a free bit of merchandise -- usually something on the low-priced end of whatever the shop sells. You often also get a landmark, an invitation to join the shop's group, and a bunch of other promotional stuff. If the shops are lucky, you get distracted by other merchandise while you are hunting for the freebie and you end up buying more things on impulse.
  4. @Shockwave -- Yes, I agree, and I am as disturbed by it as you are. I don't like LL's decision to dump us into the Google-searchable world one little bit, and I will not defend it. My best response to the OP, however, has to be (1) Sorry, but you're stuck with the system, but (2) you can choose to disable a lot of it so that your searchable profile is as worthless as possible. I am powerless to do anything else.
  5. You can make your profile dead boring and uninformative. Don't fill in anything about your RL. Leave the Interests section empty as well, so that the system can't recommend you to anyone else. Then make your Privacy settings as restrictive as possible.
  6. If it says that it's attached, it's attached. It's also probably inside you. When clothing/jewelry designers make things that are meant to be attached, they usually do the final fitting on themselves or on an alt who is "average size." That guarantees that the object will attach in roughly the right spot for most people. If you are taller, shorter, slimmer, rounder, or otherwise differently challenged, however, it won't fit as well, so you'll have to adjust it. Stand on a pose stand so that you are immobile. Then, use your camera to look inside yourself to find the belly ring. (You're all hollow inside -- no icky stuff.) When you find it, use your edit tools to highlight it and then drag and rotate it to wherever you want it to be. Once you have done that, the ring will remember. If you take it back to inventory, it will pop to that new location next time you rez it. This is good practice, BTW. It helps you develop good camera skills and coordination and it will improve your overall appearance once you learn how to make ALL of your prim clothing fit better.
  7. No. As far as the servers are concerned, it is not moving at all. Any movement is apparent, confined to what is generated by your own GPU and displayed on your screen. Each person therefore potentially sees a different movement, depending on how her/his GPU handles the image.
  8. You ARE wrong. That's why I copied and posted verbatim the specific section of the TOS that says very clearly, "If you are at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age (or the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, if it is greater), then you may only access areas of the Service rated General in accordance with our Maturity Ratings." It can't be any clearer than that: "YOU MAY ONLY ACCESS AREAS OF THE SERVICE RATED GENERAL". If you are telling residents under the age of 18 that they can enter non-G areas, you are setting them up to be banned. Incidentally, there is no such thing as Teen Second Life. That grid was removed last year. Anyone 13-15 years old may be on the main grid, but is restricted to a specific G-rated area that is owned by a LL-approved sponsoring agency (a school or youth organization, for example).
  9. NO. That is flat-out wrong. See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Teens_in_Second_Life. If you are under the age of 18 and are in areas that are not rated G, you are in violation of the TOS and risk being permanently banned from SL. The rules are very clear. See the TOS, Section 2.2: " Users 16 and 17. If you are at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age (or the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, if it is greater), then you may only access areas of the Service rated General in accordance with our Maturity Ratings. ...... Your Accounts may be supsended or terminated immediately without warning or any refund or other compensation if we believe that you are under 13 years of age, if we believe you are under 18 years of age and you represent yourself as 18 or older, or if we believe you are over 18 and represent yourself as under 18."
  10. You may not have to submit tickets. Try contacting the merchants first. By now, the items are certainly no longer queued for delivery. They should show up (incorrectly) as having been delivered. To get a record of the individual items in your order, open Marketplace and click the My Marketplace menu at the top of the page. Select My Account >> Order History from the pulldown menu. You should cut and paste the information about each missing item from that Order History and send it in a IM or notecard to the merchant, along with a polite message requesting redelivery. Most merchants are very kind and willing to redeliver. This happens all the time and they are aware of it. Do be patient, though. Not everyone logs in to SL every day or checks their e-mail. If you still haven't heard in another day or two, follow it up with a second polite note and finally, if you STILL haven't heard, file a support ticket at https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/ , selecting Marketplace from the pulldown menu.
  11. I apologize for not connecting the dots correctly until just this second. The problem you are describing usually has other symptoms. Basically, one or more gestures may fail to load properly and cause the viewer to time out. Often that makes you crash, but it can also make you freeze. Take a good look at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=gesture_issues, where there's a very nice discussion of how to solve the problem. In brief, it amounts to deleting your inventory cache, deactivating all of your gestures, and then activating and testing them one at a time until you figure out which one has been corrupted and is causing the loading problem. Good luck with it. I'm fairly sure that this is what you have been looking for.
  12. Ah! Thank you , Bee. I was not aware of the OP's earlier post or I wouldn't have bothered writing my response. Now that it's clear that this is an blocked IP address, there really is nothing she can do but wait patiently for a response to her ticket. Only LL can lift an IP block.
  13. When you submit a support ticket, you should usually expect a response in a week or two. If you aren't asking for something that actually requires a Linden's attention (something like reinstating a closed account, or removing the block from an IP address, for example), it's typically faster to come here and explain the problem. We're all SL residents like you, but we've seen most of the common problems many times and can often offer decent solutions. So .... why haven't you been able to log in for two days? What viewer are you using? On what kind of computer? What happens when you try to log on? How far does it get? Do you get an error message? What have you tried already? You can add more information to your question by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting Edit.
  14. (1) When you make an object, its group defaults to whatever tag are wearing at the time. (2) An object's group won't change unless you do it deliberately. (3) To change an object's group, you have to open the General page of Edit and set a new group by choosing the little wrnch and screwdriver tool icon next to "Group" and select a group name (one of the groups that YOU belong to) from the list presented. (4) Rarely, you may need to deed some objects, like radios, to the group in order to have access to some parcel properties. If so, then you have to click the Deed button on the General page. Once you do that, you are no longer the owner. The group is. There's not much else you need to know. It is all very simple.
  15. Residents can trade both goods and services. With a little work and ingenuity, you can be Second Life's next big fashion designer, jet pack inventor, or real estate developer. You can create pets, vehicles, houses, furniture, games, clothing, shoes, decorations, jewelry, plants, guns, timepieces, signs, fountains, animals, or even a new body! It's all about imagination. To get an item ready for sale, just right-click it, choose Edit, select the For Sale checkbox, and name your price. If you own land, you can place your creations there to display, or you can make a deal with another resident to help you sell your item in their store. Check out the Guide to Jobs in Second Life for a more detailed tour through some of the jobs our Residents have come up with. If you're interested in becoming a merchant, read about Selling in the Marketplace. You can also read Resident Angel Fluffy's FAQ on how to earn L$ in the Second Life Forums. Important: One thing you shouldn't do for Linden dollars is beg for them. Unsolicited requests for L$ are considered rude and are not appreciated. All of that requires some talent, determination, patience, and time. Frankly, you can earn a LOT more money for less effort with a job in RL. For many people, then, the best answer is make L$ by bringing money in world with you. After all, why would you want to WORK in SL for less than you could earn in RL, and end up with less time to relax and enjoy your "vacation" here?
  16. No. If you're 16-17 years old you can only access regions and search results that have a General maturity rating. 
  17. it really depends on how the wave is designed, so you may need to contact the creator if you don't have an instruction notecard or can't figure it out yourself. If you have permissions to modify the script, you may be able to reverse the movement with a simple change to it. If so, make a copy of the script before you mess with it so you always have a backup. One very common way to rotate something like a wave is to use a version of the rotation script that is in the Library >> Scripts folder in your inventory. It contains a function that looks like llTargetOmega(<0.0,0.0,1.0>,0.3,0.4); To reverse the direction, you just put a minus sign in front of the second number in parentheses (the 0.3 in this example).If you're lucky, that's the way your wave is scripted. There are other ways to do the job, but they are harder to explain and (fortunately) are not as likely to be used in something as simple as a wave. Unless you have permission to modify the script, though, you may have no choice but to ask the creator for help.
  18. There are many reasons why you might get that message. Yes, you may have been suspended or banned. If so, you should have received an e-mail explaining why. Your account may also have been put on hold temporarily for an administrative reason -- maybe someone else at your IP address has been using it for phishing or other unauthorized purposes. It is also very possible that the block has been placed completely by mistake. In any case, the only people who can take your account off hold again are at Linden Lab. Read http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Why_is_my_account_on_hold%3F for more details and to find out what you can do next.
  19. Check to be sure that your computer meets LL's recommended standards >>> https://secondlife.com/my/support/system-requirements/index.php?lang=en-US If your machine is below standards, it may have difficulty installing the viewer or, if it does load, may have problems trying to run it.
  20. There are a few possible reasons. Here are four good ones to start ......... (1) People may be sending gifts to the wrong name. Your name is lilarose92 Resident . If they know you by a Display Name that you have chosen, the vendor will not recognize it. That's like a nickname .... handy for sharing with friends but it's not your "Real" name -- the one you log in with. A confused vendor will not send anything and might not even send your friend an error message. Ask your friends to check their Transaction History to be sure that the sale actually went through. (2) Maybe you were not in world when people were sending you gifts. Each of us has an "in box" that holds IMs, group messages, group invitations, notecards, purchases, and things that people give us when we are not in world to receive them (or when we are in busy mode). If you receive more than 25 things, the "in box" gets jammed and refuses to accept any more. The extra thgings are not returned. They are discarded ... lost forever. (3) Maybe you DID receive them, but you refused delivery because you didn't know what they were, or you didn't recognize the person who was sending you stuff. That's actually very smart. If you accept gifts from strangers, you could be getting items that damage your avatar or prove embarrassing when you open them. As a general rule, try to avoid accepting things unless you are sure that you at least know the person who is sending them. (4) Maybe you did receive and accept them, but you don't know where they are in your inventory. It's really easy to misfile things. Open your inventory and select the Recent tab. Then click the gear symbol at the bottom and select "Show Filters". A new window will open. Change the Days indicator to show you everything that you have received for the past week or so. You should be able to find misfiled gifts that way.
  21. Será quase impossível dar-lhe conselhos sobre como resolver o seu problema a menos que tenhamos mais informações. Você recebe mensagens de erro? Telespectador que você está usando? Que tipo de computador? O que você já tentou já? Você pode adicionar informações à sua pergunta clicando no link Opções no canto superior direito e selecionando "Edit".
  22. First, try just changing your bald base to a different one, and changing your group tag. Those two simple steps often clear up the problem you are having. If they don't work for you, though, don't panic. Go to http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=bake_fail and do every step of their recommendations from top to bottom, stopping when you finally reach one that cures your appearance. If you need more specific help, you can also pose a question directly to the Phoenix support staff through their in-world Phoenix/Firestorm Viewer Support group or at support@phoenixviewer.com
  23. We have no plan (or pan). There are no Lindens here. We are all SL residents, just like you. If you'd like to suggest some sort of enhancement to a SL viewer, create a JIRA report at https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/. Click the + Create Issue link and then use the pulldown menu to indicate Project:Second Life Viewer and Issue Type: New Feature. Decribe your idea in as much detail as possible so that the developers know what you are talking about.
  24. That's a good question to ask whoever made it (or sold it). You should have received an instruction notecard with the HUD. From the brief description in their Marketplace ad, though, it looks about as simple as you can get. Unless the creator tells you that there's a secret switch somewhere, the only way I can imagine that you "put it to sleep" was to accidentally set all scripts in it to Not Running. If that's what you did, see if you can select the HUD, open your Build menu and select Scripts >> Set All Scripts to Running. (Of course, maybe you broke it, in which case you're out L$249 -- about $1 U.S.)
  25. It sounds a bit more complicated than your first note suggested. If the ear was truly no mod, you shouldn't have been able to do anything to it. That includes linking an earring to it, removing an animation, or removing a script. My guess is that the ear itself wasn't no mod, but the script in it was. That would have set the no mod flag, but you would still have been able to remove the script -- which you obviously did. So .... where did it go? Did you look at the Recent tab in your own inventory, or in the Scripts folder? Unless you manmaged to drop it into some other object, the script pretty much has to be in your inventory somewhere. So, find it and put it back.
