  1. It will not stop them copying and posting your IM conversations on other non-LL owned websites/blogs/forums etc.

  3. Is the land grouped owned....? If so can you not give them the powers you want them to have through officer permissions? What powers/permissions do you want them to have?
  4. Hmm, so new, so few posts and virtually all aimed at the same person. You couldn't be a.....stalking alt could you? The original Aristophanes was funny and of course all his actors wore masks, good to see that you can at least manage the latter.
  5. Linden Lab wrote: What kind of sub-categories would you like to see under People? That was not the point of the post and your answer only goes to highlight the present communication problem between yourself (Btw who are you? As in "Aname" Linden) and residents who are perplexed at your own contradictions of your own rules. People are being banned for no other reason than expressing a view or pointing out your own inconsistencies, they are banned for posting a post 3 times to parody the spam being officially sanctioned, authored and promoted by yourselves in the Vamp forum in plain contradiction of your own ToS, which we as residents are daily reminded to abide by. The establishing and promoting of a Vamp or any other niche forum is entirely your call, but you promised to work with residents on forum matters and issues and be more proactive. Yet all this was done under cover of darkness (no pun intended) and then you push and promote talking heads on to it, advertising their businesses, spamming the forum with your own posts; 16/28 threads were of your own authoring at one point and a large proportion carried creator's products as features and highlighted in LL authored threads. This as you know is expressly forbidden in your own posting guidelines barring forum sigs. Please, take stock of the feedback, be consistent, be transparent, if this was flagged up beforehand and discussed then the reaction would have been less than what it was and we would have been either on board or sitting it out quietly on the sidelines, well maybe not all, but most. Finally, it would be an act of good grace to wipe the slate clean of any bans and warnings that were issued over this fiasco, due to what was an excessive, discriminatory and arbitrary application of your own guidelines.
  6. Have you thought about moving your eyes to look, sitting back from the screen or even making the viewer window smaller? Nobody should ever be getting a sore neck from having to look around their monitor. Just looking at my monitor I can work out that it would have to be at least another 2ft taller before I would even have to think about moving my head to look. I'm using FS and if it case that the chat box can't be moved or anchored elsewhere then that's a bit of functionality they should look at as a hotfix or in the next version.
  7. I'm bemused. Any thread that wasn't Vampire related gets moved out of the Vampire fora to what they [LL] feel are appropriate fora, but a thread about a Vampire creator, a vampire product and vampire practice gets left in GD...? And there I was thinking that they were struggling to have unique and orignal input into that particular forum.
  8. Anything that's vanished is probably done by a poster with a revisionist attitude to their posts while it could still be edited..

  10. Has anybody built a large mesh house yet? I've asked around in a few building groups, but nobody knows of one. If you know of one can you PM me or IM me inworld with either SLurls or LMs.

Pamela Galli wrote: Void Singer wrote: am I happy that Celestial's ban was removed? yes. per the guidelines residents are given (as opposed to those being used by moderators) it wasn't deserved. but I agree that it's not a cause for celebration because it's only one point in a worsening trend (of internal guidlelines increasingly not matching the public ones). I agree that the TOS seems to have been tossed. Not only are posts and threads and posters inexplicably yanked, but LL itself ignored the provisions about advertising in the forums and created a special infomercial-spam forum. And if it's okay for LL to spam the forums with links and pics to selected businesses, then surely it is fair for others to do the same -- and pretty quickly the entire forum will become an advertising vehicle. We are supposed to be operating under rule of law, not rule of men or women. That's why we have a TOS. We can pretty easily stay within TOS -- but we can't read each mod's mind to figure out what might strike him or her as yankable or bannable. FIFY because the one who's been chiding me has a female appellation.
  12. Madelaine McMasters wrote: .....What about that eighty five term congressman?... This I think would be no bad thing. The problem with most politicans is that fail to plan for the long term due to the short electoral cycles engendering short term fixes and gimmicks in preparation for the next election. It's rare apart from large capital projects to even see them plan for the medium term. Most of the politicans I respect, regardless of whether they are on the left or the right, are the veterans who have been around long enough to have seen it all and bought the t-shirt more than once.
  13. I think what you are asking for is more akin to a police body than a union and that can only be provided by LL or some other entity at their [LL] behest and permission. I have to agree with Void about you citing JLU.
  14. Deltango Vale wrote: ....Going back further in history, television and air-conditioning changed the entire social structure of the human race. Sigh, as a liberal-arts economic historian, the value of Second Life is blindingly obvious. I just wish I had the money to pry it from the hands of the engineers who can't see the forest for the trees. OK I have to say that my curiosity has definitely been piqued and in the pursuit of my own enlightenment I have to ask. Can you point me in the direction of an article or articles on how air conditioning has changed the entire social structure of the human race. I ask because this seems an astonishing claim inasmuch that most of the world neither needs it, has it or can afford it or maybe it's the case you extrapolated a bit far. Or, now I think of it, did you mean air conditioning as a catchall for refridgeration and heating? If so then no need for a detailed response, I agree. It sounds a little like a Steven Levitt musing/proposition, which is why I'm guessing you threw in the liberal-arts economic historian appellation. Is there an actual degree/course in Liberal Arts Economic History or is it Economic History learned at a Liberal Arts establishment? I know you to be an intelligent and insightful person Del so I'm not being flippant with your post I'd like to know a little more. P.S. I'm only on my first coffee of the morning in case I missed something obvious.

The game as it is, seems unduly oppressive and I will no longer put up with being squashed under the capitalist, jackbooted heel of my partner's tiny silver boot! Would you mind so much if it was a black patent leather stiletto, wrapped around a nicely pedicured foot at the end of a fish-netted leg? (Never mind that the next step in that visual is a lampshade). GET OUT OF MY HEAD McMASTERS!

  17. Would it be possible to have some kind of notification to the author of a thread if it is moved from one forum to another. I recently had one moved from the Vamp forum into the Forum Feedback. With all the furore going on at the moment with severe moderation I thought it had been deleted and was awaiting a confirmation email. I then find out that's it been moved to the Feedback Forum from a 3rd party site some time later. If people aren't notified of this then their threads are posted into a new forum and can appear inaptly titled and/or the content of the post(s) seem wildly out of context in comparison to the forum from which they were removed. With notification the title or posts can be edited to explain why the thread was posted in the first place and have it put into context.

With all the things that need to be sorted out which affect the whole of the sl userbase I'd at least suggest some clarity when complaining to a company. I think anyone with a basic level of literacy and comprehension can understand her letter; others here evidently have.

  21. I'd like to point you at all the supportive threads and posts there have been, but well....you can guess.

Yes! No! Yes!....he chases her round the shabby room.....her mature, but still highly attractive mother arrives...he pushes the girl aside...chases the mother round the room...No! No! Yes!! Yes!! Oh, alright, then.... Do you have a prim waxed moustache? Check the av pic, and a shiny topper, which I tip at the ladies, not to mention my sturdy walking cane.
  23. Celestiall's ban has been rescinded, well done one and all and to all those who also fell. https://my.secondlife.com/rodvik.linden

You wouldn't seriously use yours or anyone else's tool as a weapon would you? I thought LL took a dim view about people using their tools in such a manner?
