  1. "Last name was never open, or it was closed prior to SLNameWatch.com launch date." Wow, mine doesn't even show up there. I feel... ancient
  2. I wouldn't say too late, but most releases were done before 14 hrs SLT time, so I wouldn't bet on it.
  3. This again? Sigh... Sooo... let me guess? Let's all get our sickles and go in a witch hunt of sorts right? Look, that guy doesn't have enough trafic in his parcel! Away with him. And there! That other completely unknown person doesn't have any prims in his parcels! Begone with him! That one does have 6 LI in his parcel, so that's a completely different case. He is worthy to stay! See where this is going? You will have people judging others without knowing the truth behind why their parcel aren't used enough as per your personal opinion. Worst: we already
  4. Okay, this is straight from the man himself... "[15:34] Patch Linden: I predict that they will not launch before 7am SLT tomorrow" But then, he did: "[15:34] Patch Linden shakes his 8 ball for some more advice" So, heh, who knows, right?
  5. Okay, that does it! I motion to a vote that for now on the word "soon" shall be completely eradicated from any mole or linden vocabulary! It shall be replaced by the words now, instantly or momentarily.
  6. Quartz Mole just confirmed the current position guys " Quartz Mole: ? The new regions that have appeared to the North East corner of Bellisseria are in their final position"
  7. Hey! I just realized once they are released we will be 6 sims shorter to the Satori connection dream! We're almost getting there! Almost! Err... okay, I might have been mildly exaggerating here, but still, progress, right?
  8. Yes. Yes! Any minute now... within the next few days, that is
  9. Laggy? Possibly, but theoretically that could be solved by lowering ones fov, right? We do get a whole sim of water, at least, between both. Official name? No idea, but "Pickle Island" is probably going to be its unnofficial name, at least. I mean, it even has a named bar after it, right? 😛 And yes, this will be excellent for sailing. Too bad the moles didn't open up a bit more around Pickle Island. If they did, circumventing it would probably become a thing. As it is right now, there are a few houseboats that gets in the way, which means one would have to go through it in order to
  10. I would be very, very surprised if this happens. Why? Because the moles have already started setting up each parcel. If they change its location, they would have to do it all over again. I believe what we are seeing now is, indeed, the final placement.
  11. Thank god! If that ever goes offline, then I think SL is gone for good
  12. This! You're charged for peak land usage on a given period. Even if for just a couple of hours. The tier per se doesn't mean you will pay for it. But if you actually use the land (or donate it), then you will be charged for the biggest amount you used.
  13. Not necessarily. And, again, I'm not (or trying to, at least) taking sides here, just trying to remember arguments from back in the day. i.e. I did manage to get a house, and learned about it in game, in one of the groups I'm part of before I read it here. And because people didn't know beforehand, those houses were available for 48hrs. Maybe, if this was given a proper time frame, they would be gone much sooner, as more people that go to the forums would know about it, and prepare accordingly. By not giving us a precise estimate, the biggest "advantage" we have is that we
  14. Back in 2004-2005 this was discussed ad nauseam on the forums when the first land program was a going thing. There were people asking for a timeline, so they could better prepare in order to try to catch the land they wished, and those that argued that this would give an unfair advantage to those that follow these forums which, at the time at least, was a vast minority of all Second Life users. Not taking any side here, but it became clear that LL agrees with the last group since then. These type of things are never given a precise estimate. "It will be available when it's available"
  15. Sincerely? I would love having the ability of limited movement of the Linden House placement itself. And the direction it's facing. Nothing major, but just enough so we could better align it to things surrounding it, and possibly choose which windows gets which view, within a limited range, of course. Another plus of such ability is that the neighborhood as a whole would possibly look quite a bit more "organic", with neighboring houses not in the exact same location within its parcel and facing the exact same direction.
  16. If you're talking about truly gorgeous sims, the likes that get featured in sites like Inara's, etc... I guarantee that very, very rarely that can be done in a week. A month (considering planning, building, etc), if lucky, would be a much more realistic number. Possibly way more. Still, let's work with that "one week" number of yours: The next "batch" of Linden Homes will be the "Pickle Island" Houseboats, which has 40 sims in total. If each took one week, it would take the moles 10 months (!) to finish just that. Instead, they will probably deliver that in little over a month. That's rou
  17. Me too! But eight sims wide channel? Sounds a bit too much, right? Especially when that's precisely what you need to fit the island, and still keep the channel at its current wideness. I don't know... It's just too big of a coincidence, imho... But yes, we will know soon enough.
  18. Which would be just wide "enough" to fit the new boathouse island... (five for the island per se, and an extra one to allow navigation around it = 6; Add to it the 2 old channel ones, and there you go = 8 sims wide) Just saying...
  19. While I do mostly agree with you, I do believe we have to make a few considerations: 1) There was a rather long "snooze" period. 12 hours for houseboats, and 48 hours (roughly) for houses. Enough time for ppl to sleep, to work, etc... Especially considering one doesn't even have to be in-game in order to get a house. All he needs is a browser and access to his LL account; 2) Sure, some people did get very lucky. But others have been religiously following the forums, in-game groups, etc for months, literally, waiting for Bellisseria to become a thing. They surely did deserve their hou
  20. Exactly! And, funny thing: Unless I'm mistaken (happens quite more often than I would like, unfortunately), that's a Dani Arrow IV, which already comes with the built-in option for floats. Which means that the owner of said parcel really just have a thing for floating airstrips or something of the sorts...
  21. Okay, I'll share a little story here. I just got the permission for that, as long as I keep the person unnamed. I recently managed to bring back an RL friend of mine that has been away for almost a decade. Her AVie dates from 2003 (which is even older than me), and are rarer and rarer these days. She left because of marriage, pregnancy, sons, etc... Real life happened, as usual. And I've been trying to bring her back for years, since she is dear to me. Well, guess what? Bellisseria finally managed that. I can't describe in words how happy I was when she returned. And, to to
  22. I do totally understand what you mean, no hard feelings here. And no need to set anyone on fire. But I do believe Abhor made a mistake when he "suggested" (and yes, that's all it was) that people should consider dropping houses. Why? Because, LL employee or not, whatever a mole says might be considered LL policy by some. So it's not surprising that people read it, and suddenly believe they are entitled to someones' parcel just because of said suggestion. Internet being what it is, suddenly that becomes an enforced rule to some. It isn't. It never was. LL never forced peopl
  23. Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that is a clear violation of the Covenant. *"...*Linden Homes should be kept presentable and in-theme to their unique areas...." *"...The exterior should always remain in theme out of consideration for your neighbors..." I would seriously consider reporting that if I were you. Just saying
  24. Twist your words? I sincerely hope you aren't referring to lil' ol' me. I wasn't talking about you specifically. If I were, I would have quoted you, as I'm doing right now. I'm sorry if you took it personally if that's the case. It sincerely wasn't my intention. So, if a person puts a single prim inside his parcel, it's all good? Or two? Maybe five? Fifty? When will it be enough? Where, exactly, do we 'draw the line". Who comes up with this totally subjective number? It's just that some people are sincerely considering "judging" who should or shouldn't "deserve" a new Linden home, ba
