  1. I am with Dreamamine, I am defender of Viewer 2 it has many useful improvements, especially wiht the layers and attachments!

    Having said that, Web Profiles is a giant step into the wrong direction!

    1) I am too many clicks away from what I want to do

    2) Takes too long to load in comparisom

    3) where are my classfied stats? I can't see the outcome of my campaign or haven't figured it out yet how to get it on my screen

    4) it always loads my profile when I try to load someone elses profile!


    Web profiles have advantages for other reasons and I am glad we are having them and still I believe it should be optional! All the social networking possibilities are nice for those who like it but I find it dangerous how things get pulled from the grid! Marketplace has the potential to destroy SL, when people with in world ventures can't finance their land with malls that don't convert anymore, communties will fade away and SL will become less attractive! It all got it's pros and cons of course and I am a supporter of changes, however in my opinion this is heading into the wrong direction and web profiles at this point leave a lot to desire!

  2. About 2 years ago when M Linden was announced as new CEO i said to a friend through my old Avatar "i wish they'd hire that guy from the Sims"  Well here you are and i should have placed a bet so I don't need to work 12 hours a day in SL to get some food to eat

    While I really appreciate all the well meant thoughts and suggestions from the nerd parties, what I really want to afford my further existence here is hundreds of thousands of new people and therefore it doesn't matter if my viewer got an opt in facebook button or not!

    As much SL is a world created by us, I wish there was more support from the Labs to create interesting places for noobs! Not anyone is cut out to create stuff and overcrowded hub areas are simply alienating for real people! Advertising gets them interested, the new viewer is okay to use for new residents, it's us old residents that had to adjust! Listening to us residents can be very useful but also very dangerous because in the end of the day this is a business for the company that hired you and a business for many builders and merchants and I have seen leaving the most talented and awesome people over the years and this is something that SL cannot afford!

    Second Life is similar to facebook, it will never be finished, there will never be a final version of Second Life so let's not wait for a milestone to start getting people in. Start now because compared to 18 months ago business has taken a massive hit and many people are on the verge to leave or trying out alternative grids!

    Maybe a more attractive referal program that offers mea decent cut would motivate people to advertise and promote Second Life on the net!


    I have no doubts that SL will become way more user friendly as it already is with you, i just hope it also becomes more interesting for new people and that it will attract talented builders and designers!

    Good Luck and welcome to Second Life (noob)

  3. I don't mind the web profiles and drag and i already got rid off the drag and rop thingie as i found it too complicated in the new viewer, i think the "SHARE" option is the handier solution nowadays!

    It might be just me but i have recognized a massive improvement in graphics, the camera lense seemed to be differen and it provided a wide angle view which I can't work in the current official release! First time my expensive graphics card had to do some work. Having said that... my first blue screen in Windows 7! With high quality settings I am crashing even when the hardware is capable of 5 times more! If that can be sorted out I will be a fan!
