  1. Changing your name doesn't make you invisible. It's simply changing your name. If I know what your name used to be, I can write a very simple LSL script -- fewer than a dozen lines -- to tell me what your new name is. As Moira says, merchants and many others depend on being able to do that so that they can check your past history with them to provide good service. Unless you have shared your password and login information, no one should be able to get truly personal information (and certainly not any RL information). Anyone can get access to public information like your login name, display
  2. Yeah, that's the odd part. I assumed that you had to be using a PayPal account because there's no way for LL to charge your bank account directly. You ought to see transactions in the log for your PayPal account though. If you're not, I suspect that's the first place to look. That seems to be with that error message means. Give PayPal a call.
  3. Something is odd. Take a look at As you'll see, you can choose among several ways to bring money into SL, but none of them involve paying directly from a bank account. You can declare an approved credit card (not a debit card or a prepaid card --- most of which do not work) or you may declare a verified PayPal or Skrill account. That's it. I have no idea why any charges show up in your bank account at all unless your PayPal/Skrill account has been having problems.

    1. Your guess is as good as anyone's. Care to place a bet? 2. https://status.secondlifegrid.net/
  5. Like most things, whether you are buying or renting, land is worth what you are willing to pay. Wander around places that look interesting and get a feel for what people are expecting. I suggest doing some basic reading: and If you are fairly new to SL, I suggest renting at first. You can leave a rental parcel very easily if you find a better option, and rent usually doesn't cost much unless you are renting a lot of land.
  6. This is a resident-to-resident forum. Lindens rarely come here and we don't have any powers to fix anything. We certainly can't reach into your account (which should please you). The best we can do is offer advice. Without much more information to go on, my advice is to : 1. Try using a different SL viewer. 2. Try logging in to a different region. 3. Check to be very sure that all of the fans in your computer are spinning properly and that the air vents are unobstructed. If you haven't cleared dust bunnies and cat hair out of it recently, do that too. The behavior you descr
  7. Welcome home. 😉 Here's a good place to start:
  8. Yup. And if you read the comments in this thread, almost everyone agrees that you have every right to make whatever rules you wish. Just don't try to hide behind some misunderstanding of what the TOS says. Linden Lab will not come down on you for allowing avatars who "look young" in your region. That's your rule, not theirs. You don't have to explain your rule, so I would advise you to just stay quiet instead of looking like a fool by putting the responsibility on LL.
  9. There is only one Wanted forum. If you are looking for someone to write a script for you, however, post in the InWorld Employment forum.
  10. From that region, maybe. After all, it's their own rules they are talking about, so they can ban you if they want to. LL won't. There's nothing about your avatar's appearance in the policy about role play. Read it yourself and see. They are uninformed and trying really hard to keep themselves out of imagined trouble. That's their problem, not yours. Help them out by avoiding the place. As I said before, if you're not there, it's their loss.
  11. Yeah, nobody said life is fair. You're right that the landowner can eject anyone for any reason at all, even if it's a dumb reason. Just add that venue to your personal blacklist. It's their loss.
  12. 1. If you're new at building, the first few dozen things you make won't be good enough. Don't let that discourage you. You're learning, and we learn by making a ton of mistakes. 2. If things you make in world aren't good enough, then they aren't good enough to put in a Marketplace shop either. Wait to sell stuff until you can be proud of it (or at least not embarrassed by it). 3. If you have loads of ideas, just start playing with them. Make loads of stuff and have fun. Worry about giving/selling them to other people later. 4. Start reading Knowledge Base articles about creati
  13. You've made some good observations, @Wulfie Reanimator, and I think they account for much of your success with this method so far. I am not personally convinced that I can count on a listener being active on rez, so we differ there. Lag and odd server behavior have shaken my confidence over the years. From a very practical perspective, though, the best reason I can think of for preferring to handshake is that it reduces the number of ways that I can screw up absent-mindedly. Like most scripters, I often direct scripts to reset on rez, to be sure that they (1) know who the current owner
  14. And if you would like to propose a new way of doing things, the way to do it is to submit a JIRA report and classify it as a New Feature Request. Lindens will not respond to requests like this in the forums.
  15. And, sadly, "rude and boorish" knows no boundaries. You can be a jerk anywhere.
  16. You're not alone. There's a grid-wide issue ATM. Just be patient. Go read a book for a while, or call your mom.

    The quick answer is NO. The Land Impact capacity of your land is defined by its area. If you want more land impact capacity, you have to buy more land. The more complicated answer is that under some rather rare circumstances, the landowner on a private estate can add a bonus to the L.I. capacity of some parcels at the expense of L.I capacity in her own land. The total capacity for the region remains the same, but the landowner has redistributed it carefully to give renters a little extra. (For example, that's how Linden Lab gives parcels in the Horizons regions a bonus. If you have b
  18. That's a classic method, and it usually works well. I've used it myself for years. As @Oz Linden noted in this forum a year ago, though, recent changes in the way that event timing is managed can sometimes make this method fail. Specifically, even though a channel should be opened in the new object on rez, the object may be slow to rez or its scripts may be slow to execute. If you send information too soon, the new object will never hear it. My routine way to beat the problem had always been to put a short llSleep -- 0.3 - 0.5 seconds -- in the rezzer's object_rez event before sending vita
  19. That's a decent question, even a decent peeve. All of that aside, though, a landowner can always define his/her own rules for the land as long as they are at least as restrictive as the region's G/M/A rating. So, whatever the landowner's motives may be for wanting an Adult-rated region, he/she is completely within rights to decide that nakedness is not allowed. You could be ejected for breaking that local rule or, in fact, just because the landowner doesn't like the color of your hair.
  20. The current Maitreya body (v5.1) doesn't use those shapes, so I don't know how it works. They seem to have stopped using them after v4.0. I have my old ones, but they are no trans too. If you're just trying to make her shape fit her head, though, do you have to mess with anything other than the neck size? I would guess you can do that empirically pretty easily.
  21. Terra del Fuego, maybe? When did you become Premium? If it was fewer than 45 days ago, you still have to wait. In fact, 45 continuous days. THEN you'll get your one-time signing bonus.
  22. But was it a good one? Don't kick a gift horse in the teeth.
  23. It's not even a well-written one. Tell him you'll forward the query along to your brother-in-law in Interpol, who will probably be glad to help.
