  1. You don't "assign". You either DEED the land (which you can't do in this case, because you are renting) or you SET the land to the group. Setting the land to the group just makes it possible for group members to have some privileges like the ability to rez things, run scripts, or bring objects onto the land , if you have given group members those abilities.
  2. I can understand the appeal, but that's really not practical. It assumes that people selling in world now are all using some sort of networked system like Casparvend, and that it would be "easy" to just funnel all of the sales through those systems to MP. There's a lot more out there than networked vendors. I've scripted quite a few of them over the years. There's no way you could convert all of those different systems easily to MP. Also, you'd get big-time pushback from merchants, who would lose a percentage of their sales to the MP commissions.
  3. I used to get them years ago, but not for almost a decade, I would guess. Heck, half the time I can't remember my own rezday. I can't expect LL to remember. 🤡
  4. It has never made much sense to me either. I have to figure, though, that there are people out there who either don't know that the sliders are there or have never tried to find out what they do.
  5. Not at all. From a purely practical perspective, I think the Lab's problem is that disputes between residents can degenerate very quickly to "He said -- She said" arguments. If you've ever raised children, you know that there's no easy way to resolve claims like "He hit me first!" and "She's always picking on me". It takes a lot of time to dig for relevant bits of information to figure out exactly what's going on and who's more at fault. Parents and LL have better ways to spend their time, so the best they can say is, "Go to your room and cool down." In fact, that's often the very best solution anyway.
  6. Absolutely right. In fact, he might submit an AR against YOU, possibly resulting in you being suspended for a TOS violation.
  7. Not really. What you describe falls into the broad, fuzzy category of "Disputes Between Residents". Article 6 of the LL TOS says, in part, "We are not responsible or liable for the conduct or content of any user. We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other users." In other words, work it out between you or walk away from the dispute. LL may intervene if it's absolutely necessary, but don't count on it.
  8. Yup. Essentially, what happens is that the act of changing your display name also changes your old legacy name to a modern username (with the dot). If you then revert your display name back to your username, it still has the dot. What you see in the tag over your head is your reverted display name on one line and your user name on the second line. If you see me in world, all you'll see on my tag is this: because I have never used a display name, so I still have my original legacy name.
  9. If you ever think you have found a bug in the viewer or the SL server code, the place to report it is in the JIRA >> https://jira.secondlife.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa . Follow the advice on the landing page and at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Bug_Tracker . Before you submit a report, do a careful search to see whether someone has already filed a similar or related report. If so, it is wiser to add your observations to that report instead of opening a new one. JIRA reports are reviewed and prioritized for attention by technical staff. You should receive acknowledgement when you post a submission, but will probably not hear anything further about progress until the issue is resolved (which can take some time -- maybe years, depending on the priority). You can always log back in to the JIRA to see the report's current status or to add more information. In any case, this Answers forum is not the correct place. Lindens rarely come here. When they do, they are not looking for items that should be in the JIRA, in Support Cases, or in Abuse Reports. This is a resident-to-resident forum. ETA: The JIRA is for reporting issues you have encountered in the SL viewer or server, not things observed in third party viewers. If you suspect there is a problem in a TPV, submit a bug report to their support team.
  10. Quoting from the Knowledge Base: The format of your username depends on when you registered the account In 2010, Second Life changed from registering new accounts with a "first name" and "last name" to a single-word username If you registered your account after mid-2010, you created a unique, single-word username; for example: mortimer1980, or jsmith57. When you log in to Second Life, you simply enter the username you selected when you registered. If you created your Second Life account before mid-2010, you have a Second Life "first name" and "last name" that determine your username as follows: firstname.lastname. For example, if your Second Life name was originally Joe Smith when you joined, your username is joe.smith. Then, from a scripter's point of view: From an LSL standpoint avatars can have 3 different names. Naming Description Unique Get (in region) Request (dataserver) llSensor(Repeat) flags detected events Display Name The name that is displayed on the screen. No llGetDisplayName llRequestDisplayName N/A N/A Username The name the users logs in with. Yes llGetUsername llRequestUsername AGENT_BY_USERNAME N/A Legacy Name An interface predating Display Names. Yes llKey2Name llRequestAgentData AGENT_BY_LEGACY_NAME llDetectedName The relationship between the Username and Legacy Name is simple. The Username for a specific Legacy Name is the Legacy Name in lowercase with the space replaced with a period. If the last name of the Legacy Name is "Resident", then the username is just the Legacy Name first name in lowercase (without the last name or the period).
  11. This is not the best place to ask. The Creation forums are places for artists, scripters, animators, and designers to trade ideas and to moan about things that aren't working the way that they expected. If you want to commission custom work, you should be posting in the InWorld Employment forum.
  12. This is not the place to ask. You should take a look in the Parcels for Rent subforum of the Land forums.
  13. You came here and asked whether anyone had noticed an increase in performance problems. I can't speak for anyone else, but I took you at your word and gave you my own observation -- no, I haven't noticed anything. That's been my only participation in this thread. Personally, I'm not interested enough to spend much of my in-world time joining a larger discussion, but I think it's fine if you are others do. The big thing holding back my enthusiasm is a larger pile of things that do demand my attention. There aren't enough hours in the day.
  14. This just shows you not to trust statistics based on small, non-random samples. You've heard a small sample of responses in that forum and another small sample here. Neither can be trusted. So far, all you have is anecdotal evidence. People go the the FS group because they are having troubles, so you are likely to hear from a lot of people who say they have performance issues. You've heard here from a number of people who spend a lot of time in world, many of whom who have spent years fielding questions in the Answers area. We're reporting no increase in performance issues -- our own or most of the people we talk with here. So, you've heard conflicting reports and can't draw any valid conclusions. And you certainly can't make the leap to identify a cause for a problem that you can't verify.
  15. There's always room for another Leonard Cohen cover ... 😎 Halle
  16. You're always answerable to someone. If you own a parcel on the Mainland or a region anywhere, you are "renting" from Linden Lab. The debate to have with yourself is about who to rent from, how much they will charge, and what sort of service/support you get. That discussion opens a whole can of worms about landlords and SL support. I'm not sure you want to go there.
  17. The best guarantee of privacy has always been isolation. Security orbs, ban lines, and all that other nonsense is necessary on the Mainland, where anyone can fly over or walk into your land. With a private estate, all you have to do is block incoming teleports. BTW, your comment that is based on a misunderstanding. The move to AWS did not make SL any more scalable. Empty regions still have storage/maintenance costs and generate zero income.
  18. Speaking on behalf of the other owners of private estates, I would be very disappointed if the void around my region suddenly became navigable. One of the big draws of a private estate is privacy.
  19. Yes, try asking in the InWorld Employment forum.
