    How to broach script use with neighbors.

    I'm surprised Prokofy doesn't know about this. It's one of the things I expect anyone in the rentals business to know about, especially someone that does mainland rentals.

    How to broach script use with neighbors.

    What is the point in policy? There's already a policy regarding excessive region resources and it's useless so more policy is likely to be the same, very few of LL's policies actually seem to be enforced. Besides what good is a policy to enforce something users can't measure? You wouldn't tell your tenants to stay under a certain prim count if you had no way to see how many prims they use, would you? Currently, there is no reliable way to see script usage on mainland. Without estate tools you have nothing. Any resident made HUD that claims to tell you script usage is basically useless.

    Abandoned Land Auctions

    No, because they will check the first few requests then just stop checking requests for awhile haha. Yes but the odds of it going to auction were basically 0 for a time, they now seem to be going back to the old policy (but it can be a bit random) the old policy is still the current policy.

    Parcel Owner is MIA?

    I've been really tempted to request some places like that but I know that if they do sell them to me (or put them up for auction) I'll be kicking myself for getting an old build removed.

    Abandoned Land Auctions

    I believe this is why they started sending parcels to auction. Shortly after auctions came back they started sending requested parcels there so I believe anything before that point was them testing it with parcels that were not requested.

    TBH I wouldn't bother. Most groups aren't under tier so you will be creating tickets wasting time for both you and LL the majority of the time. Even if they are under tier, LL gives them a chance to increase the tier and keep the land so all you are really doing it getting LL some extra $.

    Parcel Owner is MIA?

    Multiple years in my friend's case. His account was suspended for non-payment and I was donating ~20m tier to cover 4-8000m. it was there for years before LL Did anything about it.

    Is this a mainland parcel? If it is an estate then you are out of luck completely, if it is mainland as I suspect it is open the group's profile and check the "Land & L$" tab. If the "Land available" is negative then you may be able to have LL "seize the land" as you put it. You will need to be premium however and you won't be refunded for any rent paid. Submit a ticket to LL saying the group is not paying tier on the parcel and you would like to buy it. LL will then contact the landowner and ask them to increase their tier. LL may seize the land while they do this however so your items may be returned. If they do not increase their tier to cover the land, LL will either offer the land for sale to you for L$1/m or put it up for auction to cover unpaid tier costs. If the land was not seized before this point then they will at this point seize it and return all objects. As for the rent... you could try put in a ticket explaining what happened. I am extremely doubtful LL will return the L$ as from their point of view you paid someone to rent land, you are renting the land, and it's none of their business (mainly this one).

    Abandoned Land Auctions

    Not lately unless you have a good claim or they think the parcel isn't suitable for auction (odd shape/size). At least that is what my experience has been. Frankly, with the amount of time I spend looking at land, it puts me off because I can spend days looking for a parcel only for it to go to auction (which ends at the worst time for me due to my timezone). Sure you can say the end time doesn't matter because I can set my maximum bid but only fools think that. Placing an early bid allows others more time to think about if it's worth outbidding you. It also means the price is likely to be higher due to this. While I could place what I believe is a good price as my maximum bid, if I check back and have been outbid that gives me time to re-evaluate the parcel and how much tier I have, deciding if I want to go higher than the price I previously set, except I don't actually get this opportunity because I won't be around for the final 6 hours.

  11. They get replaced within days so reporting them seems pointless.

    Land for sale that is not for sale

    What I do is open the edit terrain window on select land and drag a narrow strip along a size. when you get to the end divide the sqm by 4 to get the length of that side, then repeat for the other side.
  13. Doesn't it count traffic if you are set to away? I need to set myself as away more often then... That's because it's pretty cheap for them to just have their own traffic bots on the sim somewhere.

    Will Gaeta 1 ever be completed?

    I don't live there, I rent out land. I would love to see the continents completed, but the way it is now we get sea views with the small tradeoff of needing to cover that gap.

    Highest population continent? (Not Zindra)

    When I travelled it, I walked visiting all the places that added an entry along the wall.
