  1. LMAO! @Scylla Rhiadra I was going to give you the kiss of life, but was prevented by an unknown force. It confused me and I forgot to thank you for fainting over me. So, Thank you very much, lovely Scylla
  2. Very interesting idea, Qie (still my #1 poster ). I'll give that idea some thought. Well done on coming up with it. @Qie Niangao Bots: I forgot to mention that I'm on with resurrecting my most recent bots system. I wrote several in my time. A friend wants some bots - character, not traffic. But it's been quite a while, and my latest system it was written 2 computers ago. Programming environments change over time and previous source code (solutions) won't always load into, and run from, the latest environment. So far I've managed to get hold of Visual Studio 2008 which should have helped
  3. LOL. People have been doing that? lol. I've never popped in as another av, and I only pop in out of some need, like today. But I've been in SL every day while the covid thing is restricting us. And thank you for welcome back, @Love Zhaoying.
  4. Thank you folks. That's what I was expecting, because I can't think of a way of doing it with LSL - not actually preventing rezzing. I had to ask though
  5. Thank you for that, @Wulfie Reanimator. It does help.
  6. Thank you @Lucia Nightfire It seems it's not really possible. What my friend would like to do is place a 'limiter' in a tenant's accommodation to prevent them rezzing more than the allotment, but only after they've transgressed twice. It seems that it's not going to be possible they way she imagines (i.e. actually prevent rezzing), but your first suggestion might work, as she only wants to do it with repeated transgressors, so a system would not need to travel. Thank you for your reply. It's appreciated.
  7. Does anyone know of a product that will prevent a tenant from rezzing more prims than the accommodation allows? It's preventing the rezzing rather than dealing with exceeding the allowance. It's not a parcel problem because there are a number of tenants on the same parcel, some having different prim allowances than others. Someone told me that a product exists. If anyone knows a product that might do it, I'd appreciate knowing about it. Thank you.
  8. Is there a way to prevent a tenant rezzing more prims than the accommodation's limit? In the case that I'm looking at, the tenant is one of many tenants on the same parcel, and the accommodations have varying prim limits, so it's not just an overall parcel control. I'm actually wanting to find an existing product or, failing that, an LSL method that would work. I can write the script but I haven't figured out a way that would do it. Thank you for reading this.
  9. Coincidentally, while I'm spending time in SL during the covid restrictions it crossed my mind to open a store selling Retro furniture and put all my old furniture up for sale again. It would all be classed as retro these days - almost steampunk lol
  10. It could be that, @Anna Novabut all the others come up, including you. I'll try @Selene Gregoireagain - and there she is
  11. That's an interesting list you linked to, @Liffento Eldritch. Thank you.
  12. @LittleMe Jewell Some of you are irresistable, Lil @Cindy Evanier I'm sorry it's boring here for you, Cindy but you know what can happen when I get into in a thread - so I'm not gonna get into them @Selene Gregoire - huh. wonder why I wasn't offered your name to highlight. Anyway, that was nice thankyou and then I saw the bottom line grrr,,,,
  13. Ty, @Maitimo and... Hi Cindy. You can put your nail sharpener away. I'm not gonna be a forumite again
  14. When I left SL a year or two ago, LL was talking about doing multiple levels of Premium membership. Did anything happen with that? I've looked in my account page and I see only one level - just the normal Premium membership, although the cost has risen significantly. Note: If you remember me, I'm only back in SL to fill some hours while the coronavirus restrictions are in place, although a reason has cropped up whereby I would continue to stay if they were lifted right now. But I'm not coming back to the forum except to ask the occasional question like this one - so there's no nee
  15. Ty, @oOJoselinOo I don't know what she's done but, unfortunately, I don't use the Linux viewer so I can rummage around in it to find out. I've explained that the viewer she's using is years out of date, and given her the details of where to the Firestorm one, so it's up to her now. It's interesting to know that there is a setting somewhere in some viewer that can turn off moving the avatar with the cursor keys. I'm now wondering if she get move the avatar with the w.a.s.d keys (are they the ones?). I didn't think of suggesting that to her. I will the next time I see her.
  16. Thank you very much, KjartanEno. I appreciate the reply.
  17. hmmm almost 3 years have gone by since then. It does look like it's going to have to be one of the others. Ty, Solar.
  18. Ty for the quick reply, Solar. I know nothing about it myself, so presumably she downloaded what was listed in the downloads section. It works ok except that she's inadvertantly set something that causes the movement problem in that viewer. If anyone can suggest what she might have set, she could unset it. Failing that, I'll suggest she installs one of the others.
  19. A friend of mine is brand new to SL. She created an account yesterday or the day before and has to use the LL Linux viewer. She was ok doing the Welcome stuff but now she can't move properly. She can only use the mouse to move. The cursor keys simply move the scene, not the avatar. I thought she was somehow stuck in mouselook but pressing Esc a couple of times, and scrolling the scroll wheel back, doesn't change anything. Apparently she can see her own back which I don't think you can do in mouselook anyway. Does anyone have any idea what setting she might have inadvertantly set in her vi
  20. Oh right. You're back then. There were 1 or 2 occasions when we were doing it simultaneously, but mostly we did it individually, without anyone else around. It's different to the sort of group activity I thought you were describing.
  21. To set the record straight... I don't have different personalities for different environments, and I don't play roles. I was always just the natural me wherever I was - inworld or in the forum. I'm just like everyone else who doesn't roleplay; i.e. I respond to what happens in the environment I'm in. Different environments bring out different responses, that's all. You'll know that your name is totally new to me, so I don't know who you are. Also, I have never done what you described - you, me and quite a few others doing 'this thing' together inworld. I haven't a clue what 'thi
  22. It's not something I've heard of before so I also did a search. I found and read a thread in this forum, and I also went to a website. From what I've read, the system was invented back in the days of camping and such, for the purpose of improving search rankings. Having to go to places, stay a while, and then get paid, and getting paid for Picks are the giveaway. Staying in places for money was called camping, and getting paid for Picks provided a link to the place. Both of them improved the search rankings. Doing things to artificially improve rankings was outlawed years ago, so I wouldn
