    Gacha category? or still just dump everywhere...

    Hi! Gacha and Mask are not mutually exclusive. An item can be, and many are, both Gacha items and Mask items. Therefore there isn't one, single "most appropriate" category, both Gachas and Masks are equally appropriate. If a seller chooses Masks instead of Gacha, they are not wrong. The item they are selling IS a Mask and therefore the Masks category is not wrong. Your personal opinion, my personal opinion, the personal opinion of anyone else does not matter. What matters and what counts and what applies and what we use in determining whether or not a Product Listing is in a wrong category/sub-category is what is listed in the Legal Documents that we ALL agree to abide by in the Terms of Service, Terms of Use, and related policies, including the Marketplace Listing Guidelines. We will not, based on "personal opinion" punish sellers by unlisting their items (removing them from sale) when their items do not violate the Marketplace Listing Guidelines.

    Gacha category? or still just dump everywhere...

    Hi! So you want to eliminate seeing any and all items that do not have Unlimited Quantities available, regardless of the permissions? All No Copy items, including Gacha items are Limited Quantity items. That is what Limited Quantity really means. Some template creators/sellers may set a restriction on how many items can be purchased by putting in the number available, which makes them Limited Quantity, even if they are Copy Enabled. items and even when the seller really does have an Unlimited Quantity available, they just choose to allow a restricted number of sales of the item through the Marketplace. So with asking for a Limited Quantity filter that would already do what you want it to do (hide Gacha items), that can be done by checking the Copy option after a search is done, you are willing to punish sellers by hiding their Full Perm, but restricted sales, items?

    Gacha category? or still just dump everywhere...

    Greetings! Sorting categories by Newest first will always show the newest items in those categories at the top, regardless of the item itself, and that feature has worked like that for at least 10 years, and is not broken. The Marketplace Listing Guidelines have always said that the "most appropriate" category should be used when choosing the category for a product listing. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/listing_guidelines#category-guidelines There are many items that can be placed into multiple categories and since multiple categories may be equally appropriate, Linden Lab has never punished sellers for picking one category over another and we have no intention of starting to either. As I stated in my previous post, if a Gacha item is a Mask, and the Product Listing is in the Avatar Accessories - Mask sub-category, it IS an appropriate category and we will not be punishing the seller, by unlisting their item and forcing them to move the listing, for placing their listing into the Mask category just because some people would prefer it to be in the Gacha category If you see items, including Gacha items, that are in a wrong, or top level, category, you CAN help by reporting those listings using the Flag this item link on the listings, but if the item is in an appropriate sub-category we will not be actioning those listings since they do NOT violate the Marketplace Listing Guidelines.

    Greetings! Limited Quantity means No Copy. Every product listing on the Marketplace that is No Copy will show as Limited Quantity. If you do not wish to see No Copy items, then on the filter options, then after you have clicked on the Search button, put a check in Copy and you no longer see any No Copy/Limited Quantity items.

    Hi! Please feel free to flag Gacha items that are in the wrong categories though (Everything Else, for example). Every little bit helps!

    Greetings! There are over 60k+ items in the new Gacha category. I would not say it is useless.

    Gacha category? or still just dump everywhere...

    Greetings! If a Gacha item is in an appropriate category, then we will not be taking any action against the Product Listing. As an example, if a Gacha item is a Mask, and it is in the Masks category, please do not report the item as we will not be forcing the seller to move the item. If, however, the item is in the main Avatar Accessories category (ie, NOT in the correct sub-category), then please report the listing and we will action the listing. This applies to any other type of Gacha items as well. So clothing, jewelry, etc. Those items must be in the correct sub-categories. So a t-shirt in say, the Mix and Match Ensemble category is already in the wrong category, and if it is flagged, it will be actioned. The change now though is instead of advising the seller that the item should be in the T-Shirt category, we are letting them know it should be in the new Gacha category. Please do not report items that are in an appropriate category.

    Since when can customers do an MP redelivery by themselves?

    Hi Pamela! Item Spam restrictions in the Listing Guidelines has never applied to the exact same item with different permissions, since different permissions are clearly different versions. While it wont help in this issue, since any changes made today will have an unintended consequence for either version of the item, going forward, it is strongly recommended that any creator/seller who wishes to offer the same item with different permissions really should list the items in their own Product Listing, and not re-use an existing listing for permission changes.

    Greetings all! Since this thread has run its course and the conversation is veering onto other, completely unrelated, topics, we have chosen to lock the thread.

    Firestorm is one hell of a memory hog

    Greetings! Please do not post links to .exe files on the forums. While we understand that as Open Source, the viewer allows users to tweak and modify the viewer to enhance features or options, we strongly recommend that users do not download and use any viewer that has been hashed together outside of the registered 3rd party viewers. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory While Linden Lab does not verify the legitimacy or veracity of any 3rd party viewer code, those who are registered with Linden Lab must comply with the Third Party Viewer Policy and failure to comply has repercussions. If you are using a 3rd Party Viewer and wish to see additional features and functions added to the viewer, especially with Firestorm, we strongly recommend that you submit your request directly to the 3rd Party Viewer Developers. Firestorm has a long history with Second Life and from what I have seen and heard, they are dedicated to providing a viewer that meets the wants of their users. and will most likely be very happy to look into any request from their users.

    Hi! At the risk of sounding like a broken record, file a Jira Request. The Jira Request should be to implement a change to the buyer side redelivery function so that the item will only be redelivered if the Version number on the listing currently matches the Version number from the buyers order. (If there is no version number, or the version numbers match, then the buyer can ask for redelivery as many times as they want). Version numbering exists already on product listings. It is the responsibility of the seller to change or update that number when they do any updating to the item itself. But your Jira Request would ask to implement version checking before the redelivery of the item to the buyer.

    Hi! Actually, the MKT never permitted disabling and relising items. Under SLX/Xstreet, Aphotheus did allow updates that made more than 50% in changes to the item to be listed as a new item. If the changes that Iren did weren't equal to a change of more than half of the item, then they would have been in violation by deleting the original and creating a new listing for the item. It is possible, therefore, that over the 5+ years that an item has been listed, a merchant has made small, incremental, changes over time, such as that today the item would be more than 50% different from the original item, but because of the minor changes, did not permit creating an entirely new listing for the item each time.

    Greetings! This isn't about filing a "counter jira". This is about merchants who wish to limit the time frame in which a buyer can get an automatic redelivery of Copy Enabled items that they purchase. https://jira.secondlife.com This would not affect a sellers ability to redeliver any item they wish, at any time, either manually in world, or by using the link that they now also have on the Sales Order.

    Greetings! Disabling & relisting items is not permitted under the Marketplace Listing Guidelines. Iren does have a very valid concern, and one that they should feel free to have addressed and answered by the team. Iren, I would recommend that you create a Jira Ticket to request that the ability for a buyer to have a Copy Enabled items redelivered through the Marketplace Order be restricted to a specific time frame. For example, only allow a buyer to request a an automatic redelivery of the item if the purchase was within the past 30/60/90 days, or 6 months, etc. This way recent buyers can get a limited number of updates, but anyone who purchased the item years ago would be required to buy an entirely new copy.

    Hi Cindy! I have it on very good authority that this feature IS coming. No word on when, as obviously there are things that need to be worked out to get this into place, but the Marketplace Team is listening, and the are working on getting out features and functionality that are designed to help. Keep those Jira's coming!
