  1. I very much doubt that anyone would consider that spamming. Rather it's good customer service and pretty standard. As a scripter who's been in business for 13 years I've sent many updates/upgrades, as have some of my customers (I've created devices specifically for that purpose) and have yet to hear of anyone objecting to receiving a new version. Plenty of people say thanks or get in touch to ask about something else. I quite like update days, I get to catch up with old customers.
  2. Thanks Jenna - I'll have a look. Mostly because I can (well maybe) and it might be a nice feature. It's just for avi to avi communication - I'm using unique identifiers internally but thought I'd try to make display names work. I figure if people go to the trouble of making them, that they'd prefer to be referred to by them.
  3. Thanks for that, Dakota. Good to get the full picture.
  4. Same. I can stay logged into https://accounts.secondlife.com/ forever but going to MP page logs me out more often than not. Anyone noticing a drop in MP sales since this started?
  5. Thanks guys. NP I'll just have to work around it. Horrible @#$#%#@%$ display names. @Mollie thanks I saw Sasun mentioned that in the jira. Unfortunately I won't have control at client end. @Nova thanks, so that explains how the two email functions can be different. I just found that code snippet you posted in an old thread - StringUTF8Size(string). If != llStringLength, I can send just the username in email instead.
  6. Thank you Nova and Wulfie - you just saved my sanity! (Hate to necro an old post, but just had to say
  7. Hello. Is there any reliable way to make non-ASCII characters (eg from display names) show correctly in email sent from SL? Currently they: show correctly in the body of offline IMs from scripted objects (llInstantMessage) forwarded to email using llEmail they show correctly in subject but as ??s in body, and using llTargetedEmail they are replaced by ? in both subject and body. I've found https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-4059 and https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-391 which are a decade old and offer no hints of resolution. Does anyone know more about this issue?
  8. I'm sure if you went to the marketplace and typed "hunt" in search and restricted it to "gadgets" you'd find something that would let you type part of a prim's name in chat and get a teleport link to its location.

  10. Dear LL, You make money from people shopping on marketplace. You may find it's in your best interests to make it easier for them to spend money, not harder. sincerely, Zanara.
  11. Ah ok that makes sense. Thanks for that background, Rya.
  12. I've had some customers comment about my prices being the same on MP and in-world and saying most merchants now adjust their pricing for the 10% MP commission. Is this correct? As an X-Street veteran (and migration survivor - Vale Darrius) I remember there once being a rule against this, but is that still the case? Should I be offering an in-world discount? (but then again - tier isn't free). What do you all do?
  13. Hey Oz, all the best. Enjoy your Third Life. Thanks for not nuking llRequestAgentData()

This is due primarily to the need to get Merchants off of Xstreet, as it was down for a weekend in early July, forcing us to accerate our dates. CTL: Thank you for the explanation as to the rushed migration date. It certainly does make sense to minimize use of a system that is well known to be buggy, unstable and mostly unrepairable. However ... The process chain from XStreet technology through the Marketplace, Direct Delivery, End-Customers and the Merchants consists of much more than a single link. While it is accepted that VMM had to be pushed ahead for fear of the whole house of cards tumbling catastrophically, the failure to prepare all the other inter-related links has essentially created the same condition. We humans that run the Avatars that are the Merchants are prone to hesitation, trepidation, and refutation .. especially when our money is messed with against our will. I thought this "cart before (or absent) the horse" behavior had ended a few months ago. I am sad to see it has not. plus ca change, plus c'est la même chose...
  15. Hi Chloe As Freya said, it's default SL behaviour to transmit the device location. The way I managed this for my own store was to create a small parcel for my servers, with a forced landing point at the store entrance. This way people land where they need to, to shop or unsub, but don't suddenly appear in my workshop to scare the crap out of me while scripting, etc.
  16. Do the jpg conversion yourself first (and if necessary reduce size to <= 512 across). Photoshop (or Gimp or whatever) will do a better job of this than MP.
  17. Try making a new listing for the demo and then change the linkon the main to that.
  18. Assuming you own the holovend, and that the buyer is just activating it with touch/menu, the sim considers you to be the rezzer, since you own the object doing the rezzing.
  19. Hunt fee? So now you have to pay to give stuff away?
  20. Item name was requested during SLM beta over four years ago. IIRC, getting the purchaser's name was a bonus...
  21. Cute, huh? For more details you need to go to https://marketplace.secondlife.com/merchants/<your_merchant_number>/reports/orders Download CSV from there as well as the transaction page for your records.

Once the required information is provided, the processing to Paypal timing will resume. This. If a cashout is taking longer then a week and you haven't already provided the lab with your tax info then you need to look for an email from the lab or log into the support portal to check for an open case. I had to search my gmail for email from support@secondlife.com before i found anything. ---- Due to the volume and/or amount of Process Credit Requests you have submitted this year, Linden Lab is now required to collect and confirm the following account information from you: • Name • Date of birth • Address • Identification number (for U.S. residents, the Social Security Number) ---
  24. Last time I looked at this (a few years ago after the crackdown on "gaming search", so apologies if info is out of date) the consensus was that you would be fine using any of these devices, as long as the parcel they were on was not set to show in search. So you could cut out a small parcel under the chairs themselves, set it to not show in search, and you'd be fine.
