I want to emphasize that I trust you, and all the Lindens I've met, personally on this. The problem is that no matter how much I trust you, in order to use the service I had to agree that you could take all my stuff. Align the legal with the intent and I'll be back in a heartbeat. I know that may be easier said than done, but somebody actually went to the effort to break that trust; the previous version of the TOS was fine, and so far as I know no third-party site had problems with it either. This isn't something the community suddenly discovered it had a problem with; this is something that Linden Lab went out and did, didn't announce, and when we discovered that it'd been changed in the metaphorical dead of night we felt betrayed. There is speculation that this was done in order to let us sell our content on Desura. If that's the case, then we have the communication problem again, and also we have a disconnect between what rights are needed for Second Life and what's needed for Desura. If we need to give you more rights to provide more services, then let us opt into those services and cede the rights then. For those of us who just want to build experiences in SL, the old "necessary for the operation of the platform" should cover it, shouldn't it? You don't need rights "for any purpose whatsoever" if there's only one purpose we're agreed on. I want to trust the Lab again, Ebbe. Give me an excuse.
  2. I'm still getting up to speed on that topic. I've had several discussions about it. It's not a simple topic. Trust me. It's not becuase we have an intent to arbitrarily profit from your stuff without your permission. That would be very bad for us as we're all about user to user. We could seriously harm ourselves if we started doing that. That's the real problem, Ebbe. The trust I had in Linden Lab has been squandered. So many apparently well-intentioned moves have turned into messes that were dumped on the customers to clean up that I, at least, no longer can trust the Lab. The prior TOS seemed to be fine for years. What changed that the Lab needed to take additional rights?
  3. Funny, both engineering and product heads here also didn't like that jira was closed and want to open it up again. Proposal for how is in the works! I hope we can figure out how to do that in a way that works/scales soon. Welcome news, Ebbe. Even opening it up read-only would be a huge improvement.
  4. Caleb, fixing VWR-13228 in BlueSteel changes current behavior, but there's nothing recent in the JIRA about how. Can we get some documentation on this fix?
  5. Thaks, Maestro. Some of us have enough technical savvy to reset our clocks, and so understand that things do not always go as planned.
  6. Huzzah for JSON! (Yes, I'm easy to please. Or a technical fetishist.)
  7. It describes what I hope it will do. Give how broken llTeleportAgent turned out to be, I'm having trouble holding on to my optimism.
  8. You didn't miss anything; most of this has been under NDA.
  9. LeTigre and BlueSteel are getting some prepratation work for the long awaited experience permissions. Jack Abraham does the Snoopy dance. They didn't forget us!
  10. If one exists, the creator has found one of the holy grails of SL scripting. I'd pay good money to know how it's done.
  11. Hitomi, surely you understand that any bug or feature mentioned by any resident anywhere on any medium must be immediately gang tackled by all Lindens, including HR and finance, or it proves that they don't care one iota about Second Life's long term stability. (Though if we had read access to JIRA it'd help the sane ones feel better.)
  12. Sayrah, that already exists in the region settings.
