  1. Ok, hands up I didn't read through the entire 150 + pages of the previous thread, but surely LL are having to comply with USA law in the gacha removal? If there is ire to direct it would be better aimed at the people who make US law. Necessary disclaimers: It doesn't affect me; I didn't use gachas to sell stuff and I didn't play them either. I don't care if they are here or not, and I have no beef with US law as I don't live there, but there's no point being mad at LL. They're a US based company and they have to comply with the law, move jurisdictions or cease trading. That's all. Have a super day, m'chums on the f'rums xxxxxxx
  2. I recall a few years ago a resident who got very, let's say, immersed in her sl pregnancy to the point she role played a miscarriage when she couldn't locate her (sl) doctor to give birth. It was a whole thing here on the forums, but i did wonder at the time if mainly troll was trolling. Essentially we are paper dolls and our babies are toys. You can decide your own level of attachment. For some yes, sl becomes more 'real' and relevant than rl, and if you cannot have children in rl and would have liked to then r/p might be a route for you. A word of caution though, a Korean ( I think ) couple some years ago neglected their real living child while they role played parenting a virtual child. It did not end well for any of them.
  3. we see what you did there; and we applaud you for it xxxxxxx
  4. So, I haven't read the whole thread, but mainly what I'm getting is no one is all that bothered. So, excellent, that's all cool.
  5. Kind of; I met someone at a games club who played SL and we chatted for a while. She asked me what my SL name was and when I told her she said I was lying because 'Pixieplumb is American'. She wouldn't believe me, my husband, our daughters or several friends, and said we were in a conspiracy and she was going to warn the 'real Pixieplumb' about me. She never did, and I never knew her sl handle. I sometimes wonder if she's still around - that was easily 7 or 8 years ago.
  6. It's possible (not sure at all) that this is a morphed picture, in which case that shirt/cardigan doesn't exist in sl at all.
  7. LL won't take any action against a violation of a seller's TOS deeming it a resident to resident dispute. However, if you properly file a DMCA then LL will follow the protocols required and take down/remove the offending items pending a counter action, if that happens; some people won't bother defending a DMCA. It's also worth bearing in mind that some items do slip through the DMCA net, so to speak. LL do their best to fully comply, as required in law, but it's always possible some items will stay in various peoples' inventories, none the less. It's not necessary or usual to get a court order as the DMCA is the first resort, but if it's defended LL will restore (again, bit patchy) the items and you'd need to go to court to have them removed permanently.
  8. I think I recall reading that Coca Cola weren't bothered about second life, since obviously we don't actually drink anything here, and it's essentially free advertising!
  9. There are points? We get points? Where can we spend them? Do they make prizes? (obscure British game show reference). This is all new information.
  10. Are you using an ad blocker of any kind? I have had similar issues and disabling the ad blocker worked a treat. good luck.
  11. Would you be creating textures for wall coverings, floors, rugs? Maybe making furniture or deco items? Or would you be putting together other creators items to create a custom look? If the latter there is probably not much business to be had, as most home makers in sl like to do this themselves, and additionally most home decor is no transfer, so you would not be able to sell on whatever look you created. You could possibly create notecards listing the products you would suggest, but whether this is a service people would pay for is doubtful. Also, most up to date builds incorporate custom textures and variations with provided maps for people to make their own. Simple seamless textures are next to useless without the maps/photoshop files. If you are skilled in meshing, perhaps you could create a few pieces of furniture and see how they sell. It's a fairly crowded field though.
  12. Not from notices, but you can from in world vendors. Most groups don't send gifts via group notices for this very reason.
  13. I just won't buy fish in sl at all - never mind poorly rendered, you can't even get it properly filleted
  14. I have no idea which 'bumper' (what's a bumper exactly, anyway?!) gives warnings, but truly, do people care about being virtually bumped? I mean, come on, it takes forever to rezz in some places so yeah, you get bumped. It can't hurt or damage you, so who gives a fig?
  15. Mesh clothing has to be rigged to the bones of the avatar or mesh body. The weights for each body are different, although some are similar to others. You'll need to get the specific information from each body creator.
  16. He's SO stupid, SO wilfully ignorant - it's just astonishing to watch. And astonishing that this is so hilariously funny to anyone who has to share a continent with that doofus. Extraordinary that people - the not as stupid ones - must look at this and say to themselves, yeah, he's dreadful, he's a racist, an abuser, a moron and dumb as a box of rocks, but at least he doesn't want us to have clean air and health care and homes. Think how awful THAT would be. To be so hate filled that you're eager to suffer horribly just so long as the ones you hate suffer too. Very strange.
  17. Not my country, I'm in the UK. My only point was that it is sickening to see someone for whom the US IS their country, laugh at intelligent and well reasoned posts because their political fave has talked utter gibbering nonsense about it and they have to agree because, I dunno, hate? stupidity? they really like orange things? The fires being out of control and dangerous to humans is almost entirely die to human activity and over population and greed. Fire's natural enough, but the degree to which these have grown and the negative impact on us, not so much.
  18. Thank you, Luna; also, how, exactly, is this a post to 'haha' at? How, ffs? Your country is on fire; it isn't funny. (that last NOT aimed at Luna, obviously)
  19. The most recent Maitreya version has resizeable (sp?) feet. If the shape you have been using has feet set to zero - pretty standard in sl - the feet of the latest body will be too small for your maitreya shoes. You can fix this by setting your foot size to 25 (more or less). Future shoes for maitreya may well adjust to the foot size slider in shapes, but the vast majority currently do not. If your shape is no modify you really need to get a better shape. Fortunately the shapes that come with mesh heads are pretty well always modifiable, so you can adjust the body to suit your style. I always copy across my body sliders first thing with every new head as the body shape is never very close to personal preference.
  20. Pixie worries about many things, but strangely not this.....
  21. Although a snowberry would be different again, and maybe quite yummy xxx
  22. Hmmm, ok, well, gosh, thoughts. Firstly I'm not sure you're supposed to advertise here. Secondly, I did try the demo. I think you will have an issue with not using the SL UV mapping. By not doing this you make it impossible for any mainstream skin makers to support you, unless they are willing to make skins just for your UV map. It also means that customers who would like to use the skins they already have cannot. Further, no applier clothing will work, so again, you would need creators to make appliers exclusively for your UV, and customers will need to re buy their favourite applier lingerie, stockings, socks, tees, leggings/jeggings. It's a lot. And thirdly, sorry, I think the hands look very strange. I'll review the demo on marketplace.
